Note: This AddOn is not currently being updated. It should still work overall (probably until Cataclysm changes a lot of things). Unfortunately I have not been playing WoW as regularly and I do not have the time to update my AddOns. If you have any questions, please email me at wikwocket@gmail.com.

This AddOn displays an annoying reminder to use class buffs, armor spells, shouts, aspects, blessings, and Victory Rush.

Specifically, it will display an annoying popup on your screen (you can drag it with the mouse) if you do not have an appropriate spell up:
* Death Knight: Any presence, Horn of Winter, Bone Shield
* Druid: Mark/Gift of the Wild, Thorns, Omen of Clarity
* Hunter: Any Aspect, Trueshot Aura
* Mage: Any Armor spell, Arcane Intellect/Brilliance, Amplify/Dampen Magic
* Paladin: Any aura (Crusader while mounted), any blessing, any seal, Righteous Fury, Sacred Shield
* Priest: Inner Fire, Power Word/Prayer of Fortitude, Divine/Prayer of Spirit, Shadow Protection
* Rogue: Hunger for Blood
* Shaman: Any Shield spell, and weapon enchants
* Warlock: Any Skin/Armor spell, Soul Link, Demonic Sacrifice, Detect Invisibility
* Warrior: Battle Shout or Commanding Shout, Victory Rush

This AddOn will work with the English, French, German, and Spanish versions of WoW.

There are several options:
* /abr pvp/bg to remind while in a battleground/arena.
* /abr icons to toggle display of spell icons.
* /abr lock|unlock to toggle window locking and click-through.
* /abr center to reset window position to center of screen.
* /abr <spell> to toggle reminders for the following optional spells:
** battle|battleshout|bs - Battle Shout
** command|commandingshout|cs - Commanding Shout
** anyshout|shout - Any Shout
** vr|victory|rush - Victory Rush (after each kill; on by default)
** amp|amplify - Amplify Magic
** damp|dampen - Dampen Magic
** thorns - Thorns
** omen|clarity|ooc - Omen of Clarity
** soul|link|soullink - Soul Link
** detect|invis - Detect Invisibility
** demon|sacrifice - Demonic Sacrifice
** spellstone|firestone|stone - Spellstone or Firestone weapon buff
** tsa|trueshot - Trueshot Aura
** crusader|ca - Crusader Aura (when mounted)
** fury|righteous|righteousfury|rf - Righteous Fury
** s|seal - Any Seal spell
** sacred|sacredshield - Sacred Shield
** shield|shieldspell - Shaman shield spells (on by default)
** divine|spirit - Divine Spirit
** shadow|shadowprot - Shadow Protection
** hungerforblood|hunger|hfb - Hunger for Blood
** bone|shield|boneshield - Bone Shield
** horn|winter|how - Horn of Winter
** unholy|blight|unholyblight|ub - Unholy Blight

All settings are saved across sessions, except for Warrior shout preference, since using this depends on whether you have two warriors in your party.

It will only annoy you if you have more than 50% mana or 10 rage, are not mounted, not flying, not in a capital city, and not mind controlled. It will also not bug you if you are less than level 15. It won't remind you in battlegrounds/arenas unless you tell it to. For some short-term buffs, and buffs that require rage/energy/runes to keep up, the reminder will only show up when in combat.

The popup should appear in the situations when you would want the buff up. No configuration is necessary, unless you want to also enable reminders for optional spells.

I hope you find this mod useful. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome!

=== Version history: ===

AnnoyingBuffReminder 2.14 (WoW 3.2.2):

* Added support for Death Knight presences.

AnnoyingBuffReminder 2.13 (WoW 3.1.2):
* Added support for the Paladin spell Sacred Shield: Type "/abr sacred" and you will be reminded to cast Sacred Shield on yourself when in combat. Note that this will only look for Sacred Shield on yourself; this mod is not designed to watch buffs on other players.
* Added a toggle to disable the Victory Rush reminders: Type "/abr vr" or "/abr victory" or "/abr rush" to disable or re-enable these reminders.

AnnoyingBuffReminder 2.12 (WoW 3.1.1):
* Updated Unholy Blight reminder to only show when you have enough runic power.

* Fixed a bug that would remind you to cast a Warrior shout even when someone else had a shout on you.
* Added a command ("/abr anyshout") to remind you to cast any shout (this lets you revert to the default behavior after setting it to remind to you cast a specific shout).

Buff Reminder is probably the best alternative I've found so far. Does pretty much exactly what AnnoyingBuffReminder used to do; puts up text on your screen (only) when a buff you want tracked drops off your character, either in-combat only or in and out of combat. Nothing else. And its reliable, non-buggy & light on CPU resource usage.

Buff Reminder also works with the current WoW 4.x spells which were not present when the last version of AnnoyingBufFReminder was released (including Priest Chakra, which is hard to find in any mod).

Biggest differences: That mod optionally puts icons beside the spell name, whereas this one did not. And this one put up an unchangeable rectangular frame to alert for missing buffs. Buff Reminder puts up text (and the spell icon) only; the text font and size can be changed as well as moved.

I'd love a working version of this, but I've not found anything that does what this addon does, sadly.

I wanted to post here that AnnoyingBuffReminder is not currently being updated. It should still work overall (probably until Cataclysm changes a lot of things). Unfortunately I have not been playing WoW as regularly and I do not have the time to update my AddOns.

Thank you to everyone who reads or posts in these comments threads, especially to those who have submitted feature ideas and bug fixes. You're the reason the WoW community is so great!

warlock spell/firestone weapon enchant reminder

The reminder for warlocks spell/firestone weaponenchant doesnt seem to work - ofc i ENABLED it with /abr stone (and /abr firestone) - but in both cases i didnt get a popup when i (manually) removed the weaponenchant (or equipped an unenchanted weapon)

other reminders - like felarmor - working fine - so the conditions been met.

Pally problems

I have had the same problem with my pally. Won't remind me of seals. It reminded me of my Aura and Blessing the first time and then i enabled seals (as that is the main reason i got this addon) and they all seem to stop working. Well off to try some other things i guess

Just confirmed it works great on my hunter click aspect off ABR kicks in. Even seems to work most of the time with pally except for seals.

Hiya!

I notice ABR supports weapon buffs for Shamans - any chance of introducing a Poison reminder for Rogues? I frequently log in, go off a'killing, and realize after like 10 minutes I never applied Poisons.

Abacinate: ABR will not trigger for characters less than level 15. It's in the addon description. This is so that it doesn't pop up for bank alts etc. If you really want it to work on a level 10, you can edit the "15" in the .lua file.

Zidomo: While I consider it a success if the popup is indeed "annoying," I do see what you mean. I have a few ideas about how to tweak the icons a bit.

Weird on one paladin its ok another nope

Hi there, two paladins on one account, one is 54 and one is like 10.

Yet for some reason no matter what I do, disable other mods its the same profiles, ABR will not show anything on the level 10 one but it works fine on the level 54 one.

I tried playing with the different spells on / off and of course not being in town etc.

Any ideas ?

The spell icon(s) are a nice addition. But two of them--one on either side of the AnnoyingBuffReminder (ABR frame)--is too much. It makes the already large ABR frame just a bit too large & annoying .

Could one of those icons be removed and, say, move the remaining icon to the top-center of the frame? Or else if you prefer to have them on the sides of the frame, still have just one icon but have a user-selectable side to put it on?

Actually, although the mod's files refer to spell ID 30482, it just does this to get the (localized) name for the spell "Molten Armor." It then uses the text name to look for matching buffs. So as long as all ranks of Molten Armor share the same text name, there shouldn't be a problem.

Of course if you are seeing the mod fail to warn for some ranks of Molten Armor (and can repeat this outside of a city with >50% mana) please let me know.

SpellID 30482 now just covers rank 1 of Molten Armor. So v2.13 of AnnoyingBuffReminder will fail to remind for higher ranks that are cast. Rank 2 is now 43045 while rank 3 is now 43046.
