Minimap Menu

OptiTaunt is an addon for warriors, druids, paladins and deathknights. It informs you and your party/raid if your taunting abilites were resisted. It also announces your use of crucial abilities like Last Stand, Frenzy Regeneration, etc.

I'm always glad to receive feature and localization suggestions. Please use the comments -or even better- use the CurseForge ticket system.

Current dev status:

active - semi-active - pending - inactive

  • Core rewrite and Ace3 conversion
  • changing event handling

There are several options you can enable or disable:

Vancleef's last update:

''As you might have noticed there were no updates for quite a long time. This is due to the fact that I quit playing WoW some time ago. I have no plans to maintain this addon any further and therefore I marked it as "abandoned". Maybe there is someone out there who might adopt OptiTaunt - who kows? Thanks for all your suggestions, bug reports and kind words. Vancleef.''

    Whenever you use Challenging Shout, and the ablity ends, the addon will spam an "ability-end-line" for every enemy it fades off. This can cause some massive spam in the selected channel. Is there a way to change this so only 1 line pops up? Or am I missing something here?
