Vocal Raid Assistant

Version: 1.1.1
by: Nitrak [More]

Vocal Raid Assistant

Vocal Raid Assistant is deeply inspired by GladiatorlosSA and works as an audible announcer for what cooldowns and special abilities that are being used during PvE Encounters.

Example of such abilities: Tranquility, Rallying Cry, Divine Hymn, etc.

Bars have been added to track cooldowns and defensive/offensive buffs for the raid! It is disabled by default, but go to the menu and check it out!

(Note: this has nothing to do with the bossmod VEM)

Why use VRA?

It helps the raid leader (and the raider) being aware of what cooldowns are up at the current moment, in order to most optimally take informed decisions.

What won't you hear?

The cooldowns you use yourself you will not hear, since you should be aware of you casting them (Other people with the addon will hear it). It is also possible to disable specific announcements and enable others. As standard Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp/Ancient Hysteria and a few others are off as default, but you can enable them in settings.

Thank you for the kind words .

I have never used VEM, so i have no clue how they interact - But i would assume they should work just fine side by side.

WoW has a limited amount of sounds it can output to you at a time though (your sound channels) - Low(24), Medium(32),High(64) - That's the maximum amount of sounds that can be produced at the same time.

The only thing i can imagine, is if you play with sound on in a raid environment with a lot of spells flying about plus VRA and VEM it might cap on Low(24), but even there it seems unlikely.

But please if you can reproduce an error, i'll do my best to find a workaround

Just duration bars of important raid abilities, not necesarily on myself.
Like when a priest pops Pain Suppresion , just display a duration bar with the icon and a name on who it is active (and maybe the spell name).
Pretty much any spell duration used in this addon. and maybe add the big tank cooldowns like shield wall, etc

Thanks for considering this btw
If you have not seen, this is now fully fledged implemented with full costumization!

I will think about it, although it's not the original intent of the mod, but maybe i will add it as a thing the user can enable

Thanks for the suggestion
