Simple Interrupt Announce (SIA) is a World of Warcraft addon that aims to be a relatively simple and efficient, yet flexible interrupt announcer. The main use of such an addon is to help coordinate interrupts in raids.
SIA stores settings for how to announce interrupts based on your grouping status. So you can have separate settings for when you are solo, in an instance group, party, or raid.
For each of these four statuses, SIA can announce your own interrupts, and those of other people/pets in your party/raid.
Announcing is based on modes, which decide what channel the announcement goes to. They can be: off, self, say, instance, party, and raid.
The default settings are:
status own other
solo self N/A
instance self self
party self self
raid say self
So, when you are playing solo, you will get your own interrupts announced to yourself, and not see others. When in an instance group or party, your own interrupts and other peoples interrupts will be announced to yourself. When in a raid, your own interrupts will be announced in say, and you will see other peoples interrupts announced to yourself.
Own covers interrupts made by you or your pet, other covers interrupts made by any player or pet in your party/raid.
Instance groups are groups/raids created by the instance finder (LFD/LFR/etc.)
You can enable and disable announcing with
You can use
to see what the modes are for that status. And
/sia <status> [own [other]]
to set the mode for own and other interrupts respectively.
Here are a few examples:
/sia party - print current party modes
/sia solo self - when solo, own interrupts to yourself
/sia raid say self - when raid, own to say, others to self
