Objective Announcer Is Compatible With Warlords of Draenor
Objective Announcer is a simple addon designed to help you automatically communicate quest status to other players.
Video Introduction & Tutorial:
Many of Objective Announcer's cool features are disabled by default, so have a look through them all!
- Completed Quests: Only announce when a quest has been fully completed.
- Objectives: Only announce when a quest objective has been completed.
- Both Quests & Objectives: Announces completed objectives, with a special message when the entire quest has been completed.
- Objective Progress: Announce each time an objective is progressed. Spam warning! ;)
- Progress & Completed Quests: Announce each time an objective is progressed, with a special message when the entire quest has been completed.
Objective Announcer allows you to choose exactly which chat channels to send messages. This includes say, party, instance, raid, guild, officer, and any chat channel. When you are questing solo, you can enable self messages, which you can give any color, or route to different locations with the "Self Outputs" tab in the options menu.
Objective Announcer can add some extra information to your announcements, such as a click-able quest link, the intended level of the quest, or if it's a daily. Choose as many or as few as you want.
Extra Announcement Types
You can choose to send announcements for other situations, such as accepting, turning-in, and/or failing a quest. "Auto-accept escort/event quests" will accept any such quests you are offered, so you won't miss them. "Auto-Complete" sends a special announcement when a quest can be turned in remotely. It will also automatically open the window to turn in the quest. Use these announcements to help your dungeon members remember to turn in their quests.
Patch 6.0.2 seems to have removed MP3 file support, so use OGG Vorbis files.
Objective Announcer can play sounds on various questing events. If you have other people in your party using Objective Announcer, you can choose to hear a sound when they send an announcement. SharedMedia support allows using sounds from other addons and using your own custom sounds. Consult SharedMedia for instructions.
