Addons we want to see

There comes a time when you start to examine addons to the game, decide which to use, which seem a bit too much like easy-mode and which are just good fun. Now, we here aren’t going to give you a run-down of the addons we use and/or like. There’s better places to go for that. Here’s our weekend thoughts on addons we’d like, if only because they’d make us smile. Get working code-monkeys!!

— Every time I target a champion mob and it’s not in a keep or stage 2 of a PQ, a big flashing box comes up on screen saying “DO YOU REALLY WANT TO PULL THAT??”

— Snare that works on friendly Bright Wizards, seriously. Attaches to target and keeps them in-range and in line of sight for heals

— Change the little green arrow on the big map window to a red blob with ‘you are here’ written on it.

— Automatically show scenario scoreboards based on healing done

— DyeAdvisor, to help those in a fashion rut. It can even be called Gok Wan

— Battlecry! – that suggests appropriate battlecries based on mobs being fought like ‘back to the sewers, rat-boy!’ for Skaven, or ‘eat something’ for Dark Elves

— Ping to remind us all to take a moment and eat, I’d like mine set to hourly chocolate alerts, please. Hawley needs more regular tea alerts, but I think his body has this covered. Future iterations could include toilet breaks, laundry alerts and ‘LEAVE FOR WORK’ alerts.

— SMS app that allows guild leaders to ping officers and standard bearers in the event of a guild keep being attacked (so not a good idea, but one we actually joked about last night)

— When I’m leading a raid and give out the next objective, an addon to add it to everyone’s quest lists and maps. And if it could include a big cross on Stoneclaw Keep saying THIS IS NOT PASSWATCH that would be great.

  1. I’d like a similar one to your first. In PQs it will yell at me “This pull is too good to be true”, when the pull does in fact look too good to be true. Last night I was doing the Echoes of Something Or Other PQ in Empire Chapter 11 or 12, and the final stage spawned a couple of heroes and a shed load of champions. They all had orange names. Great, I though, I’ll just pull the big one and we’re done. I think about 10 champions came with him. Not entirely sure how our band of six survived that.

    I have no idea what you’re talking about for that last one 😉

  2. Check out the addon PISSSSS at Curse gaming for sorting of scenario scoreboard:

  3. Perhaps I’m being a bit cruel but would you really want someone who codes addons to give you fashion advice 😉

  4. @piffle: Ouch, that hurts 🙂 Although it’s mostly because it’s true 😦

    Some of those aren’t exactly out of the realm of possibility, and I too have pulled champions when I didn’t mean to. Even though this post was made in jest (at least I think it was), some of them are intriguing to me.

    – Every time I target a champion mob and it’s not in a keep or stage 2 of a PQ, a big flashing box comes up on screen saying “DO YOU REALLY WANT TO PULL THAT??”

    Could be done. Getting it to differentiate between PQs and keep sieges might be a bit tricky if it’s even possible.

    – Change the little green arrow on the big map window to a red blob with ‘you are here’ written on it.

    Also doable (as far as I know).

    – When I’m leading a raid and give out the next objective, an addon to add it to everyone’s quest lists and maps. And if it could include a big cross on Stoneclaw Keep saying THIS IS NOT PASSWATCH that would be great.

    Technically the map thing might be doable. . .with a work around crazy addon that would be required by everyone who wanted to see the location. As for the quest log, I would be surprised if you could do that.

  5. Cool Crofe. This was pretty much meant as humour, but it is sometimes interesting to take an ‘out of left field’ approach to requirements gathering 🙂
