What it does

SpellAlerter is a basic spell alert mod based off the original SpellAlert mod. See the images for the different alert types you can setup.


  • Add any spell and ability you want to be alerted to
  • Three filters: Enemy Spellcasts, Enemy Buffs, and Friendly Debuffs
  • Additional filtering for players only (reduces spam from things such as Mirror Image)
  • Each alert can have its own sound play. It's similar to making triggers in MSBT but a lot more simplified.
  • Optional minimap icon
  • Data broker plugin
  • All options are inside the GUI. Type /sa or /spellalerter to access them.


It should work with all language clients. It is currently only localized in English and Simplified Chinese. If you'd like to help translate see the Locales.lua file.
