Pull Countdown

Version: 2.3-50400
by: Dridzt [More]

"Pulling Hogger in 3.."
"2.."
"1.."
"GO!"


Simple, standalone addon to aid in creating a pull countdown announce.

Features

  • Automatic selection of the appropriate output:
    /rw if in raid and leader or assistant
    /ra if in raid
    /p if in party
    /s if solo
  • Target included if exists.
  • Can abort a pull in progress.
  • New Customizable pull messages.
How to Use
Short help and output customization options can be found in
Blizzard's Game Menu -> Interface -> AddOns -> PullCountdown
including a convenient button to auto-generate a pull macro.

Macro can also be created manually for better customization.
  1. Create a macro with this macro text
    Code:
    /run PullCountdown.Pull(#)
    # is the timer, if omitted it defaults to options setting.
  2. Open the Game Menu -> Key Bindings, look for "Pull Countdown" and set a key of your preference.
Aborting a pull:
Clicking the macro or pressing the keybind a second time
with a pull countdown in progress aborts the countdown and announces in the appropriate channel.

Thumbs up Yes!!

This addon has some great potential usages. One thing I notice in pugs a lot is the lack of co ordination. A tank (or group leader) with the ability to relay direction to CCers:
"CCers... do your thing in 3 ... 2....1"

here's hoping you consider UN-hardcoding the message to allow for some customizing .. from personal experience I have seen what havoc can be started from players seeing the word "GO!" and I know tanks would prefer to have an extra second or 2 to position bosses before dpsers let all hell break loose. Therefore the ability to change up the message just a little would be a huge benefit.

Full customization of the countdown messages including some convenient placeholders for target name, raid icon and count
is available from v1.2 onwards.

Any changes are also saved per character so you could have it be a CC announce on one character and a pull announce on another.
