Ellye's Dungeon Boss Info

Version: 0.1.6
by: Ellye [More]

Work-in-progress addon.


At the beginning of each 5-men Dungeon boss fight, this addon will cause you to /say a quick recap of the bosses mechanics. It won't give orders or lay down a strategy or anything like that, just a refresher on the mechanics of the boss.
The main source material for the write-up is the ingame Adventure Journal.


When the party engages Slagmaw on Ragefire Chasm, your character will /say:

  • <Encounter info for Slagmaw> Spits lava at a player's location. Submerges and emerges at different spots around the area.


I'm not a hardcore wow player, and I often stay away the game for many years before coming back. Therefore, when I join a Random Dungeon, I always have the risk of running into a boss with some mechanics that I either don't remember or never knew about.
Conversely, since many players got used to the way the game was playing in the last years, with dungeons being a rushfest that allowed players to completely ignore their mechanics, it's noticeable that a lot of the active population is also unfamiliar with the dungeon mechanics. Therefore, a "/say" message with a quick recap is a good way to make sure that everyone know what they are facing.

This is so awesome! My only request to make it better would be an option to either have it give the details of the fight before the fight starts. Like maybe make it to where when you simply left click or target the boss, it gives the details. That way the group can take a second to read it before the fight actually starts.

I've always wanted an addon like this. It'll be invaluable for leveling, and even better for mythic+ if development goes that far. Keeping a close eye on this one.
