RaidTalents is an addon for World of Warcraft. It was created as a means to more efficiently organize groups, but has pretty much been outdated with the addition of the Armory and the ability to inspect players’ talents.
The following is from the readme:
Enable better group setups through the use of talents.
This addon enables you to view the talents of other players, if they have the addon as well.
/rt full <playername> “Get full talent spec from player, e.g. “Zardilann is 0/48/3, with the specialty of Fury”.”
/rt single <playername> <talentname> “Check for single talents, e.g. “Zardilann has Cruelty (5/5)”.”
/rt buff “Check for blessings, e.g. “Hergar has Blessing of Kings and Blessing of Sanctuary. Leinhart has Improved Blessing of Might (3/5)”.”
/rt tank “Check for tanks, e.g “Alben is 41 Protection, with Improved Threat. Zardilann is 3 Protection”.”
/rt version “Version check, but will only show who has it, not who’s lacking it.”
It was never released to the public, and much like GuildStats, it only saw limited personal use. It may or may not work with the latest World of Warcraft patch.
GuildStats was an addon created during the Burning Crusade expansion of World of Warcraft. Before the Armory reached its full potential (if it has yet), this addon was used for Officers to quickly get a list of active guild members, character levels and their classes. Until now it was primarily for personal use, so no configuration options exist. It does work with the latest World of Warcraft patch, although I’d recommend checking out the Armory instead.
CritEmote was my second addon for World of Warcraft. Whenever you performed a critical hit, you would accompany it by an emote. Various options where available for limiting the amount of emotes, selecting the type etc. Originally it was called SpellCackle. It never reached the same “popularity” as Fury though, but it does work as of the latest World of Warcraft patch.
Fury was my first addon for the MMORPG World of Warcraft. It was aimed towards Warriors and it was discontinued after Blizzard removed the ability of addons to automate the selection and use of abilities. I had great fun making it though, and it lessened the hardships of getting up at 3 AM combined with running Molten Core for the millionth time.
The following is from the readme:
This addon is an attempt at simplifying the DPS aspect of Warrior combat.
To use Fury, simply set up a key in the keybindings menu or make a macro containing /fury, and press this repeatedly when in combat. Each keypres will attempt to activate a warrior ability, running though a list with different requirements for each ability.
Fury covers the following Warrior abilities:
Furthermore it also covers the talent Tactical Mastery, the PvP Plate Gauntlets (Hamstring improvement) and the Troll racial Berserking.
The current logic being used is outlined below:
Rend (PvP only)
Disarm (PvP only)
Mortal Strike / Bloodthirst
Heroic Strike / Cleave
/fury – uses Fury
/fury help – prints help text
/fury toggle – toggles Fury
/fury debug – toggles debug mode
/fury attack – toggles the use of autoattack. Experimental.
/fury ability <name> – toggles the use of abilities. Must use correct names with capitalization, ie. Heroic Strike, Rend etc.
/fury dance <number> – sets rage allowed to be wasted when switching stance (“dancing”)
/fury rage <number> – sets maximum rage allowed when using abilities to gain rage
/fury bloodrage <number> – sets minimum percent of health required when using Bloodrage
/fury hamstring <number> – sets maximum percent of health allowed when using Hamstring on NPCs
/fury berserk – sets minimum percent of health required when using Berserk
/fury threat – enables Cleave or Heroic Strike based on current settings
/fury stance <name> – sets stance to return to after switching stance. If no stance is selected it will return to your last used one. Must use correct names with capitalization.
I’d like to give a special thanks to sarf and Trimble Epic, my two mentors who put me on the road of addon-making. Also thanks to Shears of Emerald Dream for extensive testing.
This isn’t the most recent version (I believe 1.14 is) so if someone by some weird stroke of insanity should have that, don’t hesitate sending it my way. It’s about 4 years old, so I haven’t been able to track down much about it.
