Interface and Macros

07 Mar 2011 WoW User Interface Add-On Development Policy With the continuing popularity of World of Warcraft user interface add-ons (referred to hereafter as "add-ons") created by the community of players, Blizzard Entertainment has formalized design and distribution guidelines for add-ons. These guidelines have been put in place to ensure the integrity of World of Warcraft and to help promote an enjoyable gaming environment for all of our players - failure to abide by them may result in measures up to and including taking formal legal action. 1) Add-ons must be free of charge. All add-ons must be distributed free of charge. Developers may not create "premium" versions of add-ons with additional for-pay features, charge money to download an add-on, charge for services related to the add-on, or otherwise require some form of monetary compensation to download or access an add-on. 2) Add-on code must be completely visible. The programming code of an add-on must in no way be hidden or obfuscated, and must be freely accessible to and viewable by the general public. 3) Add-ons must not negatively impact World of Warcraft realms or other players. Add-ons will perform no function which, in Blizzard Entertainment's sole discretion, negatively impacts the performance of the World of Warcraft realms or otherwise negatively affects the game for other players. For example, this includes but is not limited to excessive use of the chat system, unnecessary loading from the hard disk, and slow frame rates. 4) Add-ons may not include advertisements. Add-ons may not be used to advertise any goods or services. 5) Add-ons may not solicit donations. Add-ons may not include requests for donations. We recognize the immense amount of effort and resources that go into developing an add-on; however, such requests should be limited to the add-on website or distribution site and should not appear in the game. 6) Add-ons must not contain offensive or objectionable material. World of Warcraft has been given a "T" by the ESRB, and similar ratings from other ratings boards around the world. Blizzard Entertainment requires that add-ons not include any material that would not be allowed under these ratings. 7) Add-ons must abide by World of Warcraft ToU and EULA. All add-ons must follow the World of Warcraft Terms of Use and the World of Warcraft End User License Agreement. 8) Blizzard Entertainment has the right to disable add-on functionality as it sees fit. To maintain the integrity World of Warcraft and ensure the best possible gaming experience for our players, Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to disable any add-on functionality within World of Warcraft at its sole discretion. 15 July 2009 Music Distribution through UI Add-Ons We have recently seen a number of User Interface Add-Ons that are making modifications to the World of Warcraft in-game music files and wanted to take a moment to go over some important points with the community in connection with this. While we are currently allowing Add-Ons that remove or replace existing sound files, keep in mind that it is illegal to distribute copyrighted materials, in this case in-game music and audio files, without authorization. One of the primary goals of the user interface is to allow players to customize their game experience and we hope to avoid making any modifications in the future that will prevent this. 13 April 2009 UI Add-On Development Policy Update On 20 March, we released the new add-on development policy to the public as an ongoing effort to help ensure add-on integrity, safety, and quality for the community. Since that time we have been in touch with many UI development communities on what the policy means to them and the continuing development of these add-ons. We would like to announce further that we are providing a sixty-day grace period beginning at the time of the initial release of the policy for UI developers to comply with the new policy. After May 19th, Blizzard Entertainment will begin to enforce the Add-on Development policy, and developers found to be in violation of this policy will be contacted directly. For more information... If you are an add-on developer and have any questions about and this User Interface Add-On Development Policy and how it pertains to the add-on that you've developed, please don't hesitate to email us at 07 Mar 2011
2d UI changes coming in 7.2 From our latest PTR Patch Notes: User Interface You can now assign a specialization to an equipment set in the Equipment Manager. An “Open All” button has been added to the mailbox. You can now preview an ensemble set by CTRL-clicking it. Spellbook Spells that haven’t been moved to an action bar are highlighted in the spellbook. Mousing over a spell highlights it on your action bar, making it easier to locate. Pet spells can now be dragged onto the player action bar. Quick Join Auto Accept: A setting has been added to allow friends and guild members to instantly join your queues without a confirmation. This setting is located in Interface Options -> Social. Group tooltips now show the available roles and if auto accept is enabled. Right click a Quick Join group to whisper a member of that group.

30m Group Finder Addons Changed Since the release of Patch 7.2, we’ve been working to resolve issues with realm performance that were causing players to experience heavy latency and/or disconnects on the Broken Isles. As our investigation has continued, we’ve discovered that many of these issues were being inadvertently caused by addons intended to automate the creation and joining of groups via the Group Finder, even for players who were not using those addons. Today, we’ve changed what addons can do when interacting with Group Finder, in order to address major performance issues with the game service for players— not just for those using these addons, but for others as well. In order to alleviate those issues, we’ve recently applied a hotfix that changes how addons interact with the Group Finder. Players will now need to give a manual confirmation when an addon attempts to: - List and delist a Group Finder group. - Search for and request an invite to a Group Finder group. Addons that are affected by these changes will need to be updated to comply with this new restriction. We understand that this is a relatively sudden change, but it was important to resolve the performance issues as quickly as possible. Note: If you are not using an addon that modifies the Group Finder feature, you should not encounter any issues resulting from this change.Kaivax219 30m
1h Healing macro pattern Hi I am looking for a little bit of help with my overall macro pattern for healers. The current version looks like the following: #showtooltip [nomod] Flash of Light; [mod:shift] Light of Dawn; /cast [mod:shift] Light of Dawn; [@player,mod:alt][@mouseover,help,nodead,nomod][help,nodead,nomod] Flash of Light; What I want it to do is: 1. cast Light of Dawn if shift is being held down 2. cast Flash of Light on myself if alt is being held down or there IS NO friendly target/mouseover target or there IS an enemy target/mouseover target 3. cast Flash of Light on target if there is a friendly target/mouseover target The whole thing basically works except for the second part of point 2. It does nothing when there is no target or there is an enemy target. Any ideas how to fix it?Totallyhalal0 1h
6h weakaura blackring dos anyone know why its not working as it used to or know how to fix sometimes it show ilvl and xp and the rings correctly sometimes not showing anything at all weakauras recently updated ...Brownsweiger1 6h
7h EvlUI Help - Party Nameplates Hey When in a party in an instance, the only way I can get names showing is enabling the default blizzard names. When out of an instance, I am able to use EvlUI to show much nicer names of friendly players. I want to be able to use this style in groups/instances. Any ideas if I can and how? (Names of friendly players when Im not in a group, this is what I want to show in group instances) (pics linked showing the custom nameplates of friend players when Im not grouped) ThanksTrionas5 7h
8h Hide player names on Raid frames and party frames. Looking for LUA code that I could enter to to create and addon that would hide player names on party and raid frames. Help is very appreciated.Iloveemilia0 8h
13h Addons for an overview of my alts I have tried altoholic, and it is not getting updated. What I want is an addon that shows rested XP for my alts. I know there is such one on curse but I can't find it. 2ndly an addon that shows what is in my alt's own guildbanks.Filidix3 13h
19h Curse PVPtalent Macro and problems I'm working on problem I explained there: Solution I'm working on I want to be like: 1. script will check wich Curse I have picked. 2. variable will become one of the curses 3. macro is launched with variable And I have problems since start. First of all I have no idea how to check wich talent is picked. So I started from test macro: /run local x=IsTalentSpell(GetSpellInfo(199954), spell);print(x) Curse of Fragility is pvp talent so this script prints 'nil' when used out of pvp. HOWEVER I expected this macro to print 'true' while pvp combat as spell becomes avaiable to cast then but macro writes 'false' instead. And now I'm lost. Also I have no idea how to mix macro and script in one button? I guess it's not possible so what would be better idea to solve this?Querkle2 19h
1d CD doesn't display anymore Hi. Hope is not in the wrong topic. I installed a lot of addons like elvui , weak auras , z pearl . Etc After all of this addons and playing a bit with z pearl the countdown for my spells on WA doesn't show up anymore only the icon . I uninstalled all addons . No luck I installed a fresh game . No luck . But before I had another problem it wouldn't show my dmg on my screen but I found it was a command , so I m wondering it might be a command as well ? The paste bin is : 1d
1d Hots duration Hey all, For some reason my hots duration (rejuv, germination, lifebloom, etc) do not show on group members (using raid-style party frames). Any1 got the fix? OmniCC doesn't work and other addons are just too complicated to setup.Gky1 1d

2d Macros for mistweaver Hey there guys So i am having an issue with a few of the monk spells. I have started using macros, a lot of “mouse over” macros with the general castcode being /cast [@mouseover,exists,nodead,help] Skill name Now this works great on all my skills exept Detox. The line /cast [@mouseover,exists,nodead,help] Detox simple do not work while /cast [@mouseover,exists,nodead,help] Renewing Mist works perfect. Can anyone help me there? The next issue I have is related to both Mana tea and Thunder Focus. While I mouse over an other players frame they simply cannot be cast. I have tried various macros to solve this witout success. Any idea what to do about it? I know they only work for me, but its pretty unintuitive for me to have to move my mouse away from a target, use them and then back on the target. Thanks for your time.Chavpan1 2d
2d Editing Frendly NamePlates in raids. Patch 7.2. I'm was browsing pov's and found a very interesting videos of killing bosses from one guild. The interesting thing is that on the video (recorded already in 7.2) they have frames attached to the nameplates in the form of circles, as it was before the patch 7.2 and modified the chat bubbles. On one of these videos they even changed the frendly nameplates. Actually the question is how? Is it third-party programs (cheats) or something I do not know? I searched and went over a lot of information on this issue, but found nothing. I tried for a very long time with all sorts of methods that are currently available or were previously available for WoW API, get nameplates or chat bubbles in the raid to attach my frames to them, but I did not succeed, everything is forbidden. So I decided to ask people who are wiser and more experienced than me. PoV's you can watch : The their first kills of bosses: Augur on 2 April, Elisande on 18 April in accordance wowprogress and achievements in armory. And these videos are from these kills. Which means that these videos were recorded already in patch 7.2.Evilinsideme2 2d
2d Gear add-on? Does anyone know a proper working add-on to compare gear? Right now I have Pawn, but it values Versatility over Mastery while Mastery is more important.. and I don't really understand how to costumize it :(Marasiah1 2d
2d Time remaining of hots on raid profiles Hello, So I had an issue 2 days ago with MaxCam and long story short, I reinstalled all my addons back because of a problem I had. All is fixed now but there seems to be an issue with my raid profiles. Before, I used to be able to see the remaining cooldown of my hots on the target, now it only displays the icon and no timer. People on LFG keep telling me there is an addon for that, but I did not have any addons they suggested before. Is there a fix to that, maybe an interface option I did not notice? ThanksGky5 2d
2d Nameplates disable on target select Aparently posting a help thread with external image links gets it removed. I've recently had an issue with my main character, wherein neutral and hostile mobs display their health and nameplate as they should, though once selected, the nameplate reverts to the text-only name. Deselecting again returns the full nameplate with updated health values. No I am not toggling nameplates on and off, and have regularly checked that they are indeed on, both for enemies and all. This only happens on the one character, my main, and isn't an issue on my alts, nameplates behave normally and stay during combat, making it easy to see their health etc. The above happens both with and without addons, the bulk of my testing being without. I followed the instructions provided from a thread on fixing a general nameplate issue; ... ...and there was no difference. I then set everything to default and purged the install folder completely which changed nothing, followed by a complete reinstall which has again made no difference. Given the fact it has persisted through everything, I can only presume it is a single character bug, or a setting that is kept between installations. I am however unfamiliar with the backend and am happy to be wrong, though I would like to have an avenue to try fix this since it makes tanking or fighting groups a nightmare. My apologies if the explanation is unclear, though I daren't post image links demonstrating the various states again in case the thread is removed. Thank you for your time, and for any help or suggestions.Cyrenacia1 2d

3d Skada problem Hi! i'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but since 4.3. hit, my skada has been acting very strange. I have the latest version and all, but whatever i do, i can't get it to show up on my screen. I've re-loaded it a few times, used it without any other addon, but still.. it doesn't show up.Seph5 3d
3d Quest Log & Tracker Hey everyone. I know there's a couple threads about quest logs but they're pretty dated and my quest involves a tracker as well. Does anyone know of a good quest log handler as I hate the wow default one they now use and a quest tracker that shows quests by which zone you're in. Preferably one addon that does both (handles the quest tracker, by displaying quests in the current zone I'm in; and the quest log). I recently found Classic Quest Log though it only handles the log and looks visually unappealing. Not sure if there's a way to skin it. And I know Dugi Questing Essential has an option to handle the quest tracker and show quests by current zone, it doesn't handle the quest log though. Any suggestions would be great. I don't really want to have to use 2 addons for this so thought I'd ask if anyone knew of something better.Drakill0 3d

4d Holding down key to cast is there any addon/macro that can make this happen? so i dont have to spam key and just hold it down. i also found old addon called SnowfallKeyPress and with it you could hold down key to cast. ((((Sorry for my bad English))))Shockqy3 4d
4d How to find a specific macro icon? Is there any way to search or find a very specific macro icon? I've made macros for my Duel ability but because it's an Honor Talent the tooltips only show up as a question mark unless i'm in a PvP zone, although it's not a huge deal, it really bugs me and I want to try and find the actual Duel icon from the list of macro icons so that it always displays it. Any suggestions? TL;DR: looking for way to set a very specific icon for my macro, #showtooltip isn't enough because it's and honor talent and I don't want it to show as a questionmark outside of pvp zones.Tom2 4d
4d How to disable Blizzard's annoying spell aerts? I remember there was an option in Interface--->Display that you could disable the spell alerts. It seems they have removed that option now does anyone know how to disable them ? Thanks in advance.Siftango3 4d
4d WoW LUA - cache issue Hello! Just started working with lua and WoW addons. It's pretty fun and I have already made some simple addons. My only issue so far is the cache. When the items I try to use is not in the local cache and I end up getting errors. How can I manage to get the item info right away, to avoid GetItemInfo(id) being equal to "nil" unless I already have it in cache? I'm pretty new to lua even if I have worked with programming so try to explain it in a simple way if possible. Thanks! Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section!Vidiya1 4d

4d Hover Health Bar Numbers Hello. Normally if I hover over the healthbar I see the numbers which I liked. But I changed something in my settings and now it's always visible which annoys me and if I disable it in the settings it shows me only the percentages while I'd rather have numbers. I hope I explained the issue and if could get help fixing this in my settings again.Nastasya3 4d
4d Kui nameplate Hello everyone, yesterday I have downloaded Kui nameplate that I managed configured but a small detail makes me !@#$, I explain: For the allies no worries in town I see their Pseudo by the color of their class. By cons in Dungeon I see their bar of life when I press SHIFT + V and the color of their pseudo Except that when I press SHIFT + V again their bar of life is removed but also the color pseudo. I would just keep the nickname of a certain color but without the bar of life more So I hope to have been clear thank you in advance for your replies.Darkenjï0 4d
5d Damage font different / class? Hi guys, I'm kinda stuck on a paranoia problem! Basically, on some of my characters, the font for the damage taken by the ennemy will be much bigger / smaller than on my other characters. I tried to disable all my addons, nothing changes it, and tried to find a Blizzard setting to set all to the same font/size, nothing worked out. Is there any chance that you guys can help me? Thanks a lot and have a good day !Khertajo1 5d
6d TellMeWhen Prot Paladin - Need Help Hey I'm looking for advice about TMW, on my button for Shield of the Righteous it displays a number 3, because it has 3 stacks. But on my buttons for Judgement, Avenging Wrath and Light of the Protector it displays a number 1 but these abilities don't use stacks? I've never had this problem before and I can't for the life of me figure out how to change it. It's a minor thing but it's really annoying and off-putting, any help would be greatly appreciated. CheersCónsacratus0 6d
21 Apr Addon for destroyin cheap grey items after looting. As title says. Anyone know if there is a addon that deletes cheap grey items after looting? Those that kept your bags clean while fishing used gave you a ton of junk, while you are doing your thing. I have been using lootbuddy for this for a very long time, but right now it starts to be so buggy, it's slowly starting to fall apart hence it does more bad than it is good for. The good thing about lootbuddy was that there was a white/blacklist and you could provide a gold limit to an item you deem to be worthy of looting (no more deleting those 100g+ grey items) so that you can carry them to a vendor. I have tried several addons (xloot, crap away, sell junk, scrap) but they all seem to focus on selling your greys, not deleting them after looted. Thank you for reading \oZenero4 21 Apr
21 Apr Clique cast on dead I am trying to set up clique. I have set a healing spel on left click (bot a macro), works like a charm. But when the person i click is death i get a cursor with a blue glow, and then i need to press escape in order to cancel it. Is there anyway to prevent this, do nothing when target is death?Riuujin2 21 Apr
21 Apr Keeping important items Hello, so today I disenchanted another piece of gear that I wanted to keep... I know ._. So im looking for some sort of addon that will either: 1) Give me a few slots in which I can place important gear (separate from the rest of my bag) that will ignore sorting and not fill itself up without my doing so. 2) Give me the ability to place and icon or border on selected items so that I know they are to keep. Any suggestions on ways I can accomplish the same goal is also welcome, I am currently using the default elvui bags (and I do like them) but am open to using a whole new bag addon if that's what is needed. Thanks in advance.Kaiitaur0 21 Apr
21 Apr [SOLVED]Play only Addon Sounds Hi, I am looking for an enthusiastic addon author to come up with a solution to allow "ONLY" addon sounds to be played whilst in-game. I have tried multiple addons via curse such as "Mute annoying wow sounds". Only to find that the sound files haven't been updated for 7.2. I have tried adding my own .ogg files to the current "Mute annoying wow sounds" folder only to find that I have either used the incorrect filename or I am unable to locate the filename associated with anything in regards to hunter sounds. I have also tried the addon "Masterchannel", only to find that most addons now-a-days don't have the need or warrant "Master" in the Playsoundfile() string. Therefore making (me or others in my situation) anyone with no prior knowledge in building addons to solve this themselves. I do understand this may be seen as an odd request, however, there are some scenarios where it does apply i.e. raids, dungeon finder, simply want to hear no wow sounds and just addon sounds etc. I have tried my hack and slash methods, now I am in dire need of assistance to solve my first world problem. Any help is greatly appreciated! Regards Ballistics1142Ørøphin2 21 Apr
20 Apr TellMeWhen Addon Issue, seeking help. This problem only happens on my new realm I just started playing on. The problem is: When I make a new TMW profile on my Warrior, and then log into my alt. The same profile is on my alt. It happens all the time. Another example: I log in my paladin, Copy TMW profile from my other paladin from different realm. Everything is ok at this point. I continue playing, then log out of my paladin, and log into my alt demon hunter. Suddenly my paladin's profile is copied on my demon hunter. Then I start fixing it again and making a new profile for Demon hunter, log back out and into paladin. Tadaaa, Demon hunter profile is on my paladin.. Anyone know what i'm doing wrong? I know im making a profile tmw and not global. This only occure on my Second server. Everything on my main server is fine and i have never had this problem. Any suggestions?Snobba2 20 Apr

20 Apr Unresponsive UI Hi everyone When I'm looking at peoples Youtube videos or Twitch steams they have a really responsive UI, all the buttons, timers, everything popping smoothly. I play as warrior and most of the time my GCD tracking bar lags, abilities hit about a second after I press buttons, aura bars are not very smooth. I'm wondering if that is because of bad addons or settings or because my PC can't handle it? I'm running an i7 4790K, 8GB DDR3 RAM, Samsung SSD, RX 480 8GB. Will upgrading something specific help improve the responsiveness of the uI? The addons I'm using are: ElvUI Weakauras DBM Skada MSBT etc.Usman7 20 Apr

19 Apr Refreshing a Scrollframe after adding new data Hello, I'm currently working on an addon for tracking Breath of Sindragosa casts as a side project, which is all working ok up to now. The addon tracks when the player casts BoS it tallys damage, ticks, crits etc. All the stats are stored within a SavedVariable called BoST_Data. The problem I am having is any new casts after logging the stats won't show up in my scroll frame until after I reload. Which I can sort of understand as nothing is saved to the file until you reload or log out, but I also have a command called /br report last which calls the table with the casts and prints the last one in chat so the data is clearly there. Now this will report the cast ive just done, but that same cast won't show up in my scrollframe without a reload, how do I get any BoS casts into the scrollframe without having to reload? I have tried calling the scrollFrame update method when a parse is added to the table but it doesn't seem to change anything. Figured it out, wasnt recounting the table after adding a record. Any help appreciated EmoEmö0 19 Apr
19 Apr Pet Action Bar help? I have multiple questions :) I am a warlock and I dragged an ability off my pets action bar and can't find a 'Pet' tab to get the ability back, so how do I do so?

MACRO 1: /run MultiBarBottomLeft:ClearAllPoints() MACRO 2: /run MultiBarBottomLeft:SetPoint("CENTER", 0, 60) MACRO 3: /run MultiBarBottomLeft.SetPoint = function() end MACRO 4: /run MultiBarBottomRight:ClearAllPoints() MACRO 5: /run MultiBarBottomRight:SetPoint("CENTER", 0, 100) MACRO 6: /run MultiBarBottomRight.SetPoint = function() end I like my UI this way, however my pet action bar is hidden under these moved bars. Is there a macro I can use to move my pet action bar above my bars? Thanks in advanceLockndot1 19 Apr
