Need The Orb

Version: 4
by: Mortilus [More]

By Myrilandell of Lothar

NeedTheOrb is an addon that will automatically roll Greed on the Frozen Orb that drops at the end of a heroic 5man instance. You don't even see the roll box pop up for the Frozen Orb.

4
  • Made the Frozen Orb language independent, so someone from Denmark or Bulgaria could use this addon and it will work.



3
  • Removed the warnings added in v2.
  • Changed the roll from Need to Greed.



2
  • Added a warning message when zoning into an instance, informing your groupmates that they should also roll need on Frozen Orbs.
  • Added a warning message when rolling on the Frozen Orb, informing your groupmates that they should also roll need.

/farnsworth Bad news everyone!

It seems that my WoW subscription has expired, leaving me no way to continue development on BuffWatcher (or any of my addons, really) since I will have no way to test that the changes I make actually work.

If anyone wishes to pick up development of NTO or any of my other addons, send me an email or a PM (my email is in the ToC) and we can work something out.

The addon is already localized for rolling via the item name, any particular reason to switch to item ID? Especially since that involves 2 extra function calls and a substring match? Just wondering, since it would seem to me that using the name would be sufficient


And the code for Battered Hillt:
Code:
                if (ItemId == 50379) or (ItemId == 50380) then -- Battered Hillt itemID
                        RollOnLoot(id, 1);
                end
I'm not going to add support for Battered Hilts, but honestly only because this addon is called "Need the Orb". I don't want it doing anything involving other drops. I'll just make a new one for Cata, that rolls Need on whatever it is in cata heroics.

Okay, i misread how Blizzard was implementing the Frozen Orb roll change. Updated this to auto-roll Greed instead of Need, and removed the party messages because they are useless now.

In 3.3.3, Blizzard changed how Frozen Orbs are handled, making this addon completely defunct.

You can delete this addon from your addon folder and not suffer any negative side effects

This mod will become useless in 3.3.3 as they're making you auto-greed the orbs.
