Version: v5.21.32
by: GeodesicDragon [More]

Help and Support

When reporting bugs, or suggesting new features, please use the Ticket Tracker located at http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/easy-portal-adver/tickets/ - I don't get emailed about new comments on the EPA Curse page, but I do get emailed about new tickets on CurseForge. This will ensure that your problem or suggestion is looked at in 3 hours and not 3 weeks. You use the same login on CurseForge as you do on Curse.

No matter how small or insignificant you think your bug/suggestion is, I want to know. If its a problem, I'll want to fix it. If its a suggestion, I'll want to consider adding it.

EPA has a Twitter account for posting updates and development news! Be sure to follow @EasyPortalAd!


Easy Portal Advert (EPA) allows you to quickly and easily display an advert for your portal services in the Trade channel. You can even use it to display an advert in Dalaran or Shattrath general chat for all those people eager to leave. It also tells you what new portals you can learn.

Use /epa help to see all commands used by the AddOn.

When setting a price, please be sure to include the currency. Some people I know charge silver instead of gold for portals. So you would type something like /dala 10g.


The five plugins (Cooldown Checker, Reagent Alert, New Portal Notifier, Refreshments and Whispers) are packaged as seperate AddOns, so you can disable the ones you don't want or need.

  • You must be Level 42 or higher to display adverts.
  • You must be Level 74 or higher to use the Whispers plugin
  • Quick and easy to use.
  • Alerts you when portals, and even your Hearthstone, finish their cooldowns. Comes with an optional sound alert.
  • Checks your reagent supplies (Rune of Teleportation/Portals).
  • No need for macros.
  • Simple to learn commands.
  • Informative help.
  • Tells you what new portals you can learn.
  • Prices can be changed quickly and easily to meet current portal prices.
  • Uses very little memory (253KB is the highest I've seen, and 49KB is the lowest).
  • Can be set to tell people you will go to them (this feature is disabled by default).
  • Advertise your services in any zone (/lz) or city (/ad) which you are in.
  • Tells you when your Conjure spells cook up something new.
  • Can be set to accept configurable keywords via whisper, which will automatically send a price list to the person whispering you.
  • Advert displayed varies according to your level.
    • Example: A level 50 Alliance Mage would show an advert for portals to the Alliance capitals and Theramore, whereas a Level 85 Horde Mage would show an advert for portals to the Horde capitals, Shattrath, Stonard, Dalaran and Tol Barad.

  • Thanks to EPA user MadJackedMike for suggesting that I add both the ability to set a seperate price for Shattrath portals and the Return Journey feature.
  • Thanks to Neiwa (Chamber of Aspects EU) and Ketho (Boulderfist EU) for helping with the cooldown check code.
  • Thanks to Lombra (Shattered Hand EU) for giving me advice on solving the problems with /epa help and /epa cost.
  • Alert noises from Steam (copyright of Valve Corporation) and Flashkit.com.

Intended Features

I'd like to add a GUI to EPA, purely for setting options. However, I don't know how to do this. If anyone can help, please let me know. I can't offer you much, other than the fact you will be credited, and listed as a co-author.
