WatchTower: Developed for use in Realm Defense. WatchTower allows you to automatically announce all pertinant information about the invaders to your allies. Simply click on the invader and use your binded key to report an enemy. Or, you may use your multiple reporting key, mouseover all enemies you wish to report, and then hit the key again to report multiple enemies at once.
The default information includes Race, Class, Level, Current Subzone, Coordinates, and can be easily configured using a selection menu. Optionally, the user can make a custom output string with any of the above information.
Output can be made to /s, /g, /p, /ra, /bg, Local Defense, or any 2 custom channels.
Currently, when using multiple enemy reporting, the output is automatically formatted to give less specific data with more enemies. This may be customized more in future versions.
NOTE: The coordinates reported by the addon are YOUR coordinates. It is impossible to get the coordinates of your enemy.
REMEMBER: This addon is intended to provide your allies with USEFUL information, NOT SPAM. It is SOMETIMES useful to know information such as player name, guild, class, and race, but be considerate. Please make use of the multiple enemy reporting function to minimalize spam. If it is necessary to give an updated report on an already reported enemy, try to be considerate and configure your settings to be less irritating (ie. 'Flag carrier spotted at %l (%x, %y)')
Setup: Create a keybinding or use the macros /script Sancho_ReportToggle(); or /script WTReportEnemy(); Use /wt options to access the setup menu
Local defense channel does not work in Battlegrounds. Use /bg instead. I'm not going to bother fixing this unless someone gives me a really good reason.
Localization is fubared. If someone shows an interest in translating I will fix it.
v20003 -Updated .TOC, no other changes
v20000 -WatchTower will no longer select units while using multiple enemy reporting. Not only was this
made impossible with the new patch, but was completely unnecessary to begin with.
-Verbose mode is now off by default, but will persist for those that already have WT.
Use /wt verbose to toggle it on/off
-Radarblip no longer included since it uses a redundant addon
