Glamour is a stand-alone replacement for the default Blizzard Achievement Alert frame. It currently offers the following improvements over the Blizzard built-in alert interface:

  • draggable anchor for relocating where your achievements are shown on your screen.
  • increases the amount of alerts from 2 to 24 allowing your screen to really pop when you fire multiple achievements together.
  • adds the ability to instantly hide an alert frame by right-clicking it.
  • left-clicking the alert frame will now open the achievement interface without closing all other open windows.
  • Captures Blizzard Achievement Alerts (Personal and Guild)
  • Captures Blizzard Dungeon Completion Alerts
  • Captures Blizzard battle.net Toast Alerts
  • Full set of slash commands to operate and test alerts.

In addition Glamour allows other addons to send customized alerts to its' frame, mirroring the fun and attention grabbing nature of the original Blizzard Achievement Alert frame. I created this interface to have a shared frame to hold alerts for when multiple addons fire alerts together. Developers are welcome to plugin to the alert interface for their own addons as well.

Suggested Addons
For an example of addons that utilize this interface see:
Titan CurrencyTracker supports Glamour alerts for Token/Currency changes.
Titan Reputation supports Glamour alerts for Faction Standing Changes.
GlamourQuestGuru adds glamour notifications when completing quests: requires QuestGuru.
Titan Archaeology supports Glamour alerts for fragments and alerts for completed artifacts.
