SimpleTranqShot  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.0 beta39
by: Brodrick [More]

SimpleTranqShot by Brodrick ( aka Kirov )

This mod automatically sends a broadcasted message when the player casts or misses a Tranquilizing Shot. If the shot misses, it sends a different message than the normal one and displays a message on the screen warning the player that the shot missed.

This is a light weight mod that replaces the need for a macro to broadcast when a hunter casts tranqilizing shot. Instead of sending a message every time the macro is hit, just casting Tranqilizing Shot normally will send the message, and only when the cast is actually successful to avoid channel spam. If the Tranquilizing Shot misses, it broadcasts a different message. It also displays text on the interface to let the player know the shot missed with out having to monitor the combat log or be looking at the ceiling to see the MISS text over the target's head.

Uploaded 2.0 beta version, finally.


  • Tracks casting of Tranquilizing Shot passively. Does not need a special button to append to your UI or macro, works regardless of how Tranquilizing Shot is cast.
  • Broadcasts configurable messages when Tranquilizing Shot hits or misses it's target.
  • Broadcasts message to the chat type of your choice. (chat channel, yell, raid, party, say, emote, whisper, /rs)
  • Displays a configurable message on your screen when you miss.
  • Displays a configurable message on your screen when another hunter in your raid misses, even if they don't have SimpleTranqShot.
  • Play a sound when you or some one in the raid misses Tranquilizing Shot.
  • NEW 1.8 - Displays a configable message on your screen when your tranq shot or anyone in your raid's tranq shot fails.
  • NEW 1.8 - Setup to announce for Magmadar, Death Talon Seether, Flamegor and Chromaggus.
  • NEW 1.8 - Automatically adds any mob who gains frenzy, or from which frenzy is removed from to it's list of known targets to announce for.

Install just like any other mod and it does everything else on it's own. It's setup with default messages for the normal cast, miss, and interface display messages which are all configurable.

Type /stranq in the console for the options menu.

I love this mod and thanks for making it. Any way to make a button to "practice" the announce of shot? We like many guilds run through our rotation for Tranq shot to make sure the order is squared away. Since Stranq doesnt work unless a shot is fired, there is not way to practice the announcement.

Heya, first of all, great mod

helps out quite a bit especially during chromaggus/flamegor.

We started AQ40 yesterday and there are mobs that seem to go into a frenzy (in an aoe passage so there are 100s of them) and when ever they do I get spammed with "SimpleTranqShot: Found new ... ".
