Rare Announcer

Version: 5.4.1.6
by: Tondef [More]

Very simple addon that will announce Rare NPC spawns, location, and health of the NPC to the area general channel upon targeting the rare. It will intermittently announce the health of the rare while you are fighting it to let others know if they can make it to the rare before it dies.

Purpose: Assist players to group up to tag and kill the rares for daily and weekly quest rewards on the Timeless Isle.

Commands: Players wishing to know the last spawn time of a rare may send "raretime Huolon" into General chat. The addon will then respond with "RA: Huolon was killed 11 Min ago". This command works with NPCID, or partial name of the NPC.

Recommended: A coordinate addon, such as TomTom, to allow them to input the rare spawn coordinates when someone else announces them via the "/way X Y" command, or a map addon that will allow them to see coordinates. HandyNotes with the Timeless Isle Rares plugin is also handy for rapidly seeing the area that a rare can spawn in.

Support for Isle of Thunder and Northern Barrens removed. Please refer to IOTRares and Battlefield Barrens addons for announcing in those areas.

To Do: Please see our project site on CurseForge (http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/rareannouncer/) to submit problems / errors.

For the love of whatever you belive in!
Implant a function that STOPS the spam of raretime and the answer of the timer on Timeless Isle.
Everytime 1 player writes "Raretime Houlon" or w/e, it spamms the whole chat with 40+ lines of the exact same response.

I belive Fatility and PheonixStyle has a function like that.

Re: great addon...but...

Thanks for the suggestion. We'll have it in the next build.

which automatically assumes General Chat is at index 1. Case in point, mine is at index 2 because of some troubleshooting I did months ago dealing with another addon.

If you don't mind me making the suggestion, a better solution might be:

Lua Code:
  1. 101: local index = GetChannelName("General") -- It finds General is a channel at index 1
  2. 102: if (index~=nil) then
  3. 103:   SendChatMessage(message , "CHANNEL", nil, index);
  4. 104: end

Anyway, just a suggestion Keep up the great work and thanks for the awesome addon!
