Addon: Power Auras

[NOTE: an updated version of this article is posted here: Addon: Power Auras Revisit ] A week or so ago WowInsider did an article about a rogue tanking Mother Shiraz. I watched the video and I spent more time wondering about his HUD than actually watching him tank. It turns out it wasn’t really a HUD (ie, didn’t include health/energy…

LF addon PST

HI all, I’m looking for an addon that will make a noise for me when something special happens in my combat log. Specifically, when fiancee pulls with Avenger’s Shield I want to have a warning noise go off when the shield misses. “Heimdal’s Avenger’s Shield misses {mobname}”

Raid Scheduling

Hi all, West Kingdom is a casual raiding guild. My interpretation of that is we don’t have required raid attendance. Every raid has a good 20 mins before hand of “Who is on? Which toons do we have access too? Can we do it with these toons?” We have a set raid time.. but there’s no good way for people…

Addon: Voice Commander

Ack.. “Bad Things”™ at work make blogging hard. Regardless, I wanted to make a note of the addon (?) application: Voice Commander Adds the ability to control multiple toons (two-boxing) via voice commands. I bet you could also use it to control a single toon. Interesting implications. See video:

Addon: CogsWheel’s MacroTalk

Ok, thrashing around the Internet can have good results some times. I generated this macro for showing raid icons of my focus: /cast [target=focus] Polymorph /run local x = GetRaidTargetIndex(â€?focusâ€?) or “0″ if x==â€?0″ then SendChatMessage (’Sheeping ‘..UnitName(â€?focusâ€?),’SAY’) else SendChatMessage(’Sheeping ‘..UnitName(â€?focusâ€?)..’ {rt’..x..’}.’,’SAY’) end The problem is that it’s REALLY long and with only 255 characters, this is cramped in a…

Addon: Auctioneer’s askprice

Ok.. things you learn by reading the documentation 🙂 Auctioneer has a feature called “askprice” That is, you can set it up so that someone can whisper you asking for your scanprice for an item. Like so: Can also be configured to take info from guildchat. Pretty damned cool!

You’ve got mail

I have to say I’m loving the bulk mailing that was added with patch 2.3. Not so much the bulk part of it (I had that by using CTmail) but the part where it bundles the items up into a single package… AND you can label the package.

Addon: Ratings Buster

I started out wanting to discuss just Ratings Buster.. but I see from my screenshot, you’re actually getting a five-for-one-here. The screenshot is showing Equipcompare (the tooltips side-by-side), TankPoints (comparing this item to the worn item in terms of tanking), HealPoints (compare this item to the worn item in terms of healing), AuctioneerAdvanced (the vendor prices) AND Ratings Buster. Equipcompare…

Addon: Jim’s Cooldown Pulse

On Mynt’s suggestion I went ahead and downloaded/installed Jim’s Cooldown Pulse. When an ability’s cooldown ends, Jim’s Cooldown Pulse shows the icon for that ability at a position/size on the screen that you’ve specified. It also plays a heartbeat sound to draw your attention. This allows you to keep your eyes in the center of the screen instead of staring…

Addon: Tourguide

Today is addon day. Tourguide is an addon that helps you find the quests for leveling. It shows an single line of instructions with a icon to tell you what to do. Tekkub, the author, has a fantastic help page over on his site. The addon was just released on Oct 13, 2007 and seems to be under active development.
