TellMeWhen WoW Addon 4.2 (4.3)

TellMeWhen is a system of icons and notifications for displaying vital information about various elements of combat.

Flexible

Icons can track any of the following things:

  • Cooldowns
  • Buffs/Debuffs
  • Reactive abilities
  • Multi-state abilities
  • Temporary weapon enchants
  • Totems/Wild mushrooms/Ghouls
  • Rune cooldowns
  • Internal cooldowns
  • Others' cooldowns
  • Diminishing returns
  • Spell casts
  • ...And any combination of over 110 other things with easy-to-use conditions.

Customizable

  • Icons can be set to show or hide based on the status of their basic element and their usability based on range, duration, stacks, and resources.
  • All icons can show the standard cooldown animation to display their status, and are compatible with OmniCC.
  • There are over 110 conditions that can be configured to make an icon show only under very specific or very general circumstances.
  • You can set a sound to play when important attributes of an icon change.
  • You can also set text to be announced/displayed when an icon's attributes change.
  • Icons can show at different transparency levels based upon the usability/existence of what they are checking.
  • Icons can show status bars on top of them, indicating the required resources and their remaining cooldown/duration in a different way.
  • Icons can be skinned with Masque (formerly ButtonFacade).

Examples

  • A druid could display an icon when a clearcasting buff procs (link)
  • A mage could display an icon when Arcane Blast has sufficient mana to be cast and is in range of the target (link), and have a Polymorph icon appear when the mob they've set to focus becomes unsheeped (link)
  • A death knight could have icons appear to show when Freezing Fog procs (link), when Rune Strike is usable (link), and when Horn of Winter drops and needs to be refreshed (link)
  • A rogue could monitor their own stack of Deadly Poison on a mob (link), and have icons appear when they need to reapply poisons to their weapons (link)
  • An elemental shaman could set an icon to show when they have more than 6 stacks of Lightning Shield (link)
  • A retribution paladin could show an icon for Templar's verdict when they have 3 holy power (link)
  • A hunter could show icon to help facilitate aspect swapping (link), and an icon for mend pet when their pet's health is below 50% (link)
  • A balance druid could show an icon when they are out of combat and one of their mushrooms is not placed (link)
  • A priest could set an icon to monitor all of their chakra states in one icon (link), or set an icon to watch the cooldown of Rapture (link)

While these examples may help you get started, the best way to use TellMeWhen is to use your imagination! The possibilities are virtually limitless, so download TellMeWhen now and see what it can do for you!

Instructions

To lock and unlock TellMeWhen, type "/tmw" or "/tellmewhen".

When you first log in with TellMeWhen installed, you will see one group of four icons in the center of your screen. To begin using TellMeWhen, right-click on one of these icons, and the icon editor will appear. You need to select an icon type from the dropdown menu and enable the icon, and then configure the icon to suit your needs based on the settings that are available. An explanation of what most settings do can be found in the tooltip displayed when you mouse over a setting.

You can also drag spells from your spellbook, your pet's spellbook, or items from your inventory to quickly set up a cooldown icon for that spell/item. Icons can be spatially manipulated by holding down the right mouse button and dragging them around. When they are dropped on another icon, a menu will appear asking you what you want to do with the icon - Options include Move, Copy, and Swap.

General settings can be accessed via '/tmw options', the Blizzard interface options, or the 'Group Settings' tab of the icon editor.

Conditions

Conditions are a very powerful feature of TellMeWhen that allow you to set custom circumstances under which an icon should show that range from very general to very specific. To configure conditions for an icon, click the condition tab on the icon editor. Conditions can check an incredibly wide variety of things, and I highly recommend that you explore the condition type dropdown and its sub-menus in order to see what is available to you. Once you have selected a condition type, there are several settings you need to configure that vary between types, but most are fully explained in the in-game tooltips. You can add multiple conditions to an icon, and you can group different conditions together for use with the logical operators AND and OR by clicking the parenthesis between each condition.

Meta icons

Meta icons are one other feature of TellMeWhen that makes it so powerful and versatile. Meta icons allow you to specify a list of other icons to check within the meta icon, allowing you to have a large number of icons for different situations show in the same location on your screen. You could also set up an icon to display any debuffs that you should be keeping up, all on one place, and show any that are missing.

Groups

All TellMeWhen icons belong to a parent group. Each of these groups can have several settings customized for them, some affecting their appearance and size, while other affect their functionality. The options for a group can be accessed by typing "/tmw options", or by clicking the group settings tab on the icon editor. Groups can also have conditions set to govern when they are shown and hidden - accessed through the Group Conditions tab of the icon editor, they are configured exactly the same way as icon conditions. I'm not going to go into too much detail here, as most of the settings are self-explanatory.


Troubleshooting

PLEASE DIRECT ALL FEEDBACK/BUGS/SUGGESTIONS HERE

  • Make sure that TellMeWhen is not in configuration mode. Type '/tmw' to toggle configuration mode on and off.
  • The most common problem people encounter is caused by not entering the name correctly during configuration. Make sure you enter names EXACTLY as they are named when you mouse over them. For buffs this is often different from the ability/totem/trinket/enchant/talent which casts the buff, so be sure to check. Known buffs and debuffs are shown as a dark purple or a warrior brown color in the suggestion list.
  • If the name of the ability does not work properly, use the SpellID. SpellIDs can be found by looking at the suggestion list that pops up as you begin typing in the name, or by finding the ability on a site such as Wowhead. The spellID is in the url, for example: www.wowhead.com/spell=53351
  • Check the settings of the icon's group.
  • Check the icon's settings in the other tabs of the icon editor.

Buy Ore and Herbs Cheap By Exploiting Farming Bots

This is a guide that will explain how you can abuse poorly configured addons to earn thousands of gold worth of Ore and Herbs with close to no effort.
In order to do this you will need an addon called Auctioneer Suite, you can download it at www.auctioneeraddon.com.

Finding the Bots:

The first step is to find people who usually sell cheap Ore and Herbs. In order to do this, we will be using The Undermine Journal.
Some features might require you to log-in, signing up process is easy enough, or you can just connect using Google/Twitter/Facebook, easy.

The Undermine Journal

The Undermine Journal

Select a realm, and begging a search of items you're looking for, be it Whiptail or Pyrite Ore, anything works.

Whiptail

Now you can see who is usually selling the items, for how much and at which times, we are going to use this to our advantage.

Whiptail

You will want to find about 4-5 people that sell a lot of the product, and add them to your friends list in game. You should watch out for level1 characters, since there is a bigger possibily that is a bot selling the Ore/Herb.

Configuring Auctioneer Addon:

Auctioneer has a feature called "Snatch", it essentially lets you add items to a list so that whenever you scan the Auction House for items, it prompts you to buy them when they are below a price you have set.
In this case it is very useful as it later allows us to run the real time search and buy Ore/Herbs as they are being posted.
To find Snatchlist, go to "Search" tab when you are at the Auction House and press "Snatchlist" on the menu to the left.

Auctioneer Ore

You will need to have the item you want to "snatch" in your inventory (or use an addon like AtlasLoot).
Click on the item while you have the "snatch" window open and then set the price per Ore/Herb, your own price at which you want to buy it for.
You will typically add more items to your snatchlist before you begin using this method, I've got the most common ores and herbs in my list.

After adding your items of choice to the snatchlist, it is time to configure the Real Time Search in Auctioneer. The real time search is a feature that allows you to refresh the last page of the action house, constantly searching for new auctions.

Auctioneer Real Time

Click Options in the menu to the right and then select "realtime". Configure it so it updates every 5-6 seconds, and disable the feature that allows it to also the refresh the first page. This way no time is wasted searching for old auctions, also check the setting to skip results and instantly prompt for buyout.

Now that all that is done, it is time for

Making the Gold:

Now that everything is setup the only thing you have to do is wait for the "bots" to log-on. You can use the Undermine Journal to see when they usually post their auctions to make it a little bit easier. Before we take to the final step thought, it is important to note that this does not work with everyone. Different realms mean different people.

As soon as you see one of these people log-on, ideally you will want to find him/her in the capital city, here is the standart pattern:

- AFK for couple minutes in Auction House.
- Walk to the MailBox and open mails for few minutes.
- Walk back to the Auction House and start posting auctions.

During this time you'll want to put up one of each item you have in your snatchlist for a cheap price. It doesn't have to be higher than a 10s buyout. These people will then typically match the lowest price of an item and proceed to put up tons of Ore/Herb at the set price. This is when you start using the real time search feature.
After you have put your auctions up, you need to turn it on. It's a small magnifying glass in the title bar of the auction house window.

Auctioneer Search

You should start getting prompted to buy the cheap Ore/Herb.

Auctioneer Buyout

That's pretty much it, keep doing this until they blacklist you. All you need to do then is create a new char, rinse and repeat. =)

Over the last couple of days alone I have bought over 50,000 Ore/Herbs for no more than 5 gold/stack.

Cheap Ore/Herbs Results

Just remember, this might not work on all realms, will definitely work on high populated realms, and you might also not be the only one doing this.

The main trick of all this is that the bots are using an automated tool to post all the auctions, so they tend to undercut everything, if you list your stuff for 10s, they will go ahead and undercut you.

Feel free to ask questions if you have got any.
