Standard Point of Interest

Wintergrasp is now supported! Give it a test and report any issues you find here.

Intel tracks the status of world PvP objectives such as Wintergrasp, Halaa, the Bone Wastes, towers, and other points of interest around Azeroth and Outland. This status, including details such as the time since the objective last changed hands and when a timed event is scheduled to occur (e.g., the Bone Wastes becoming capturable), can be seen on the world map using icons, a countdown/number-captured tracking frame, and tooltips.

Collected data is saved per realm for use in future sessions.

This is a preview version of Intel. All initially planned features are in place and have been tested except that some configuration options are not yet available: Default configuration is used in several cases. Please provide feedback on this addon to the author and, if you like it, tell your friends!

See the included readme.txt file for more information, including usage instructions.

Use with ZoneDefense

ZoneDefense (ZD) is a sister addon to Intel. It is available for download here (or at WoWI, here). Neither is required for the other to operate, but they do complement each other in a number of ways:

  • When ZoneDefense looks for a place to ping on the world map, it checks with Intel to see if one of its icons would work best.
  • When ZoneDefense receives shared alarms while you are in an instance, it forwards them to Intel. This allows Intel to continue to update world objective information when it normally would be unable to do so.
  • When Intel outputs a "pseudo-alarm," such as when a Wyvern Camp is captured or lost (an event not reported by LocalDefense/WorldDefense and thus not normally output to the chat log), it can have ZoneDefense format the message in the manner of a LocalDefense alarm, as customized by the player.
  • When an "under attack" alarm is triggered for a Wintergrasp subzone, the ZoneDP system that ZoneDefense includes (a part of Zone Log) allows Intel to recognize the subzone and thus consider Wintergrasp to have been attacked.
