Raid Invite Broadcaster is a lightweight addon for automating raid invites.
It does a few simple things:
Broadcasts to the guild chat that invites for the given raid have started.
Invites people whispering a keyword to you.
Converts your group to a raid.
Sets you as the master looter.
Sets the loot threshold to rare.
Promotes main tanks and officers at or above a set level to raid assistant.
Broadcasting can be done by typing /ib start <instance>, for example:
/ib start ICC25 sends "Invites for ICC25 have started. For an invite, please whisper me the word 'invite'." to guild chat. To re-announce, use /ib announce. I suggest making a macro for it and assigning it to a key.
Once activated, invites occur when people whisper you anything containing the keyword text. The inviter saves its state over sessions. To stop taking invites, type /ib stop.
In addition, auto-promotions to raid assistant may occur. /ib stop also stops auto-promotions, or they can be disabled separately by /ib rank -1.
Full command list (/ib or /rib)
/ib start <instance>: Starts the auto-invites and broadcasts to the guild if an instance is specified.
/ib stop: Stops the auto-invites and auto-promotions.
/ib announce: Announces the previously started instance invite.
/ib rank number: Sets auto-promotion to Assistant for all main tanks and guild ranks less than or equal to number. Set number to -1 to disable auto-promotion.
/ib keyword word: Sets the keyword which must be whispered to you for an invite. It must be a single word, not a phrase. The default keyword is 'invite'.
/ib version: Displays the version of Raid Invite Broadcaster you are using.
This is a continuation of the addon formerly known as Amnith's Invite Broadcaster (amnib) by Amnith. Continued with the original author's permission.
The word which must be whispered for an invite is now configurable using the command '/ib keyword word'. The default keyword is 'invite'.
The addon will now invite people who send a whisper via Battle.net as long as they are logged in to World of Warcraft.
