Holiday Helper
Version: 2.6
by: Slyght [More]
OVERVIEW

Completing "What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been" requires completing over 70 achievements spread across 8 world events. This addon helps where it can with completing some of these achievements. This includes:
  • Alerting you when holiday-related debuffs clear
  • Displaying holiday criteria locations on your map, such as candy buckets (TomTom required)
  • Help mark and look for race/class combos needed for some achievements, such as Rogues for Turkey Lurkey
  • Helper slash commands and macros
  • More to come in future updates

Currently, this new version is implemented for:

Hallow's End - track candy bucket locations, tricky treats needed, and wands
Pilgrim's Bounty - target rogues
Winter Veil - target class/race combos, alert about debuff
Lunar Festival - track Elder locations
Love is in the Air (partially) - target class/race combos
Noblegarden - target 18+ female characters, track chocolates needed
Midsummer Fire Festival - track flame locations and fire blossoms needed
Brewfest - track brewfest tokens needed

The plan is to get updates out for Lunar Festival and Love is in the Air before the end of March. Many thanks to help137 for doing fan updates for Winter Veil and Love is in the Air while I was absent!

TomTom is highly recommended for this addon!

http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info7032-TomTom.html

HALLOW'S END

/holidayhelper wands - Prints out what wands you own, and which ones you still need to be transformed by for "The Masquerade". Useful for copy-pasting into trade or guild chat.

/holidayhelper tokens - Prints out how many Tricky Treats you still need to collect to complete all the achievements required for "Hallowed Be Thy Name"

Unvisited candy bucket locations displayed on map (TomTom required). Use /cway to get a Crazy Taxi arrow to the closest waypoint, you may need to configure your TomTom settings to show arrows for waypoints outside of current zone.

Currently, this only tracks candy buckets needed for the "Tricks and Treats of Azeroth" meta-achievement. It does not currently track candy buckets in Northrend, Cataclysm 80+ zones, or the new EK/Kalimdor buckets added for Alliance that weren't added as criteria for the achievements. I do plan to have this all in for Hallow's End 2012.

PILGRIM'S BOUNTY

Checks all units you target and mouseover, and if they're a Rogue/race combo you need for "Turkey Lurkey" it marks them with a raid icon and alerts you. Super useful when in a major city, you can just wave your mouse around the screen and tag all the players you need to shoot. Also listens to the combat log and reports if it finds any Rogue/race combo you need. It will only do these things if you have the necessary Turkey Shooter in your inventory.

WINTER VEIL

Announces when "Mistletoe" debuff clears, and you can /kiss another Winter Reveler for snowflakes.

Checks all units you target and mouseover, and if they're a class/race combo you need for "Let It Snow" it marks them with a raid icon and alerts you. Super useful when in a major city, you can just wave your mouse around the screen and tag all the players you need to throw snowflakes on. Also listens to the combat log and reports if it finds any class/race combo you need. It will only do these things if you have the necessary Handful of Snowflakes in your inventory.

LUNAR FESTIVAL

Unvisited Elders' locations displayed on map (TomTom required). Use /cway to get a Crazy Taxi arrow to the closest waypoint, you may need to configure your TomTom settings to show arrows for waypoints outside of current zone.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR

Checks all units you target and mouseover, and if they're a class/race combo you need for "Fistful of Love" it marks them with a raid icon and alerts you. Super useful when in a major city, you can just wave your mouse around the screen and tag all the players you need to throw rose petals on. Also listens to the combat log and reports if it finds any class/race combo you need. It will only do these things if you have the necessary Handful of Rose Petals in your inventory.

Token tracking coming in a later update

NOBLEGARDEN

/holidayhelper tokens - Prints out how many Noblegarden Chocolates you still need to collect to complete all the achievements required for "Noble Gardener"

Checks all units you target and mouseover, and if they're a Female Level 18+ toon you need for "Shake Your Bunny-Maker" it marks them with a raid icon and alerts you. Super useful when in a major city, you can just wave your mouse around the screen and tag all the players you need to place rabbit ears on. It will only do these things if you have the necessary Spring Flowers in your inventory.

MIDSUMMER FIRE FESTIVAL

/holidayhelper tokens - Prints out how many Burning Blossoms you still need to collect to complete all the achievements required for "The Flame Keeper"

Unvisited flame locations (for honoring, desecrating, and stealing) displayed on map (TomTom required). Use /cway to get a Crazy Taxi arrow to the closest waypoint, you may need to configure your TomTom settings to show arrows for waypoints outside of current zone.

BREWFEST

/holidayhelper tokens - Prints out how many Brewfest Prize Tokens you still need to collect to complete all the achievements required for "Brewmaster"

TARGETING MACRO

help137 implemented a cool macro for helping with targetting characters. To create this macro, type /holidayhelper macro. For the various holidays where Holiday Helper is scanning the combat log for race/class combos, Holiday Helper will automatically update the macro to /target the latest toon found.

Error Message

Hoping that someone's reading... the error has stayed the same. Every toon, every login, 2-10 minutes after logging in, whethere I'm standing still (e.g. at a mailbox), running around (with people around me or not), or completely idle.

Multiple problems

This wasn't updated for the Love is in the Air event (and I don't remember if I even enabled it for Lunar Elders). Further, logging in after the 5.2 patch, after a few minutes of each toon being logged in (ranging from 3 minutes to 10 minutes) , I was getting an error popping up from swatter for this.

Is this still being maintained? I don't want to bother with the error if there's no one going to read it...

5.0.4?

I've loved using this addon during the events! Does it need anything for 5.0.4 / MoP? Other than "Load Out of Date Addons" checked?

Hoping to use it with pandas!

This was very helpful, thank you.

I finished all the achievements on my Mage yesterday, but it is still trying to send me to the Horde major cities to steal their flames. This is also happening on my other characters who already had all of the achievements complete. Removing the waypoints is only temporary as the addon just adds them back again the next time I log on.

There were also a few waypoints missing completely (Desecrate Horde Hinterlands and Honor Alliance Blasted Lands are the two I can remember off the top of my head).

Way of getting 'uneeded' waypoints?

I just used this addon to finish off the Midsummer achievements and now have my violet protodrake at last! (Yay!) But I already had some of the old world achievements from previous years, so I didn't get waypoints for any of those. Is there a way to get the addon to show me those fires, so I can gather enough blossoms for the items I'm missing?

Either way, awesome addon and thank you so much for making it!

More observations

I realize this comes too late for this event, but I've been busy running around for it. Your addon *has* helped, very much. But I am wondering a few things.

At first, it seemed that it was noticing when I had gotten a race/gender combo, and was not putting an icon on further ones - what I noticed was female tauren not getting iconed after the first one I eared. Later, tho, it was repeatedly hitting and re-iconing the same person, a troll, after I had already put ears on that particular troll, even. I'm not sure which is the error behavior.

Would it be possible for it to retain this data, so if I've already tagged a particular combo it doesn't show it to me again? I could completely understand if that's too much coding/ data-caching.

I was going to ask/whine about not putting icons on cross-faction people, but I saw the error pop up that says it's not possible. It *was* mentioning it in chat, so at least there was some notification.

(ETA: Now it's not doing it at all for cross-faction, not even the chat message. and I just made sure to re-enable it and reload. o.O )

I had to disable the add-on completely to turn it off (was in a dungeon and my party members kept getting raid icons... had to pull up my in-game addon panel, uncheck it, and then reload). Did I miss a command somewhere?

Looking forward to future aid with this, thank you!

Not that I find it particularly a problem, just letting you know that the behavior is not as described.

Thanks for that, windows built in .zip extractor has been so convenient I don't usually have a .rar extractor installed. No need to apologize

Sorry about that, I just re-uploaded it in .zip format

2.4 has been uploaded with updates for Noble Garden, as well as the work that help137 did for Winter Veil and Love is in the Air. Currently working on getting 2.5 done this week with support for Midsummer Fire Festival and Brewfest!

Hey all, some stuff came up in real life that distracted me from WoW and updating Holiday Helper. Apologies for not getting updates in for Winter Veil and Love is in the Air. Big thanks to help137 for updating it!

The gameplan is going to get more pro-active about getting things in, so here's my tentative plan of action:

1) 2.4 - Merge help137's updates and implement Noble Garden by 2/27
2) 2.5 - Implement Midsummer Fire Festival and Brewfest by 3/5
3) 2.6 - Implement stuff I missed for 2012 by 3/12: Lunar Festival, /tokens support for Love is in the Air
