Broker GroupHelper
Version: 3.0
by: Ailirra [More]
Broker_GroupHelper is addon that allows you to conveniently access many of the group and raid functions that exist in the game.


It is a complete rewrite of Fubar_ReadyFu.
It has been rewritten using Ace3 and LibDataBroker.

Broker_GroupHelper requires a display addon such as Bazooka or Fortress.

Broker_GroupHelper has been localized in the following languages.
English
German Translated by: Zabbel (www.curse.com)
Russian Translated by: VIPo2 (www.wowinterface.com)
Traditional Chinese Translated by: janet7682441 - (www.curse.com)

Translations are welcome.


Using Broker_GroupHelper you can do the following:

Initiate a ReadyCheck by clicking on the GroupHelper text or selecting ReadyCheck from the right click menu.

You can also open the following dungeon and raid windows.
Dungeon Finder
Raid Browser
Raid Info

The addon will also allow the user to define voice server information that will be output to the party or raid channels based on the following conditions.

* If the player is in a party, the server information will be output in party chat.
* If the player is in a raid, the server information will be output in raid chat.
* If the player is in a raid and is the raid leader, the server information will be output in a raid warning.

To define your voice server information, simply do the following:

* Hover your mouse over Enter Voice Server Info.
* Select one of the three options and enter text in editbox that is shown.
* Repeat as desired for the remaining fields.

By default the AddOn will display the following server info:

* Hostname: your.server.com
* Port: 9999
* Password: yourPassword

The addon also provides the following group options:

* Convert To Raid
* Disband Raid
* Leave Group

Fubar_ReadyFu also provides the following looting method options:
* Free for All
* Group Loot
* Master Loot
* Need Before Greed
* Round Robin

Selecting this option will make the player the master
looter if they are the raid leader.

The following Loot Threshold Options are also available:

* Uncommon
* Rare
* Epic

The following Dungeon and Raid Difficulty options are available:

* Dungeon
o 5 Player
o 5 Player (Heroic)
* Raid
o 10 Player

It looks this issue has been fixed by the author of DewDropLib.
I will incorporate the latest version of DewDropLib in the next version of the addon. I'm working on a new version and hope to release it sometime next month.
Utterly brilliant. For some reason, when I had tried this previously, it didn't work.
But it worked this time, and I'm thrilled.

Thanks so much for creating this amazing tool for raid leaders.
I was pretty much lost without it, to be honest.

For now, if you download version r324 of DewDropLib and place it in the folder below the issue should be fixed. You will need to delete the Dewdrop-2.0.lua that is currently there.
Folder path: Broker_GroupHelper\libs\Dewdrop-2.0

The latest version of DewDropLib can be dowloaded here:

@Brisbaine
Thank you, I'm glad that you like my addon.
Are you talking about the GroupHelper text that is displayed on the bar?
When you mouse over the GroupHelper text, the current loot type is displayed. I might be able to find some way to add the loot type next to the GroupHelper text and have a toggle to turn the loot type text on or off.

It appears that Dewdrop 2.0 broke sometime during one of the 4.0.1 mini-patches, as it was working for the first few weeks after patch dropped.
Will this be updated to fix that, or is someone making a replacement?

I was so happy to find this replacement for ReadyFu after 4.0.1, and now it doesn't work.

Great addon! I recently switched from FuBar to ChocolateBar after the 4.0 patch. Of course, had to find replacements to many of my addons. This one is even better than the one I was using!

I do have one request though (if you are even maintaining this addon still). Is it possible to have the addon display the selected loot type when in a group instead of saying "GroupHelper"? The FuBar addon I used would display the loot type if in a group/raid, or "Solo" when not grouped. This made the addon that much more informative.

Just a suggestion. Either way, great job with the addon!
