This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

AdiCCMonitor helps you keeping track of group crowd-control spells.

Note : the spells are likely not up-to-date with MoP.


It detects your own crowd-control spells and those of your party/raids and can provide feedbacks in two ways :

  • icons: a bar of icons showing running spells, their target symbols, their caster and the remaining time.
  • alerts: messages that can be sent to any channel (or chat window) for these events: spell applied/ended/broken, cast failures and about-to-end warning. There are no alerts for spells broken by players flagged as tanks.

AdiCCMonitor already comes with a bunch of options. Use /adiccmonitor, /acm or Interface options to open AdiCCMonitor configuration panel.

Known issues and limitations

  • missing or wrong target symbol: even though AdiCCMonitor does its best to detect the target symbols, this data is sometimes unavailable. Mouse-hovering the target should allow it to catch up.
  • inaccurate spell duration: the duration of some spells can be increased by talents. AdiCCMonitor uses the default duration until you mouse-hover or target the controlled creature. It will detect the accurate duration and remember it per caster. Also note that AdiCCMonitor does not track diminishing returns so it will probably be pretty inaccurate for players.
  • inaccurate alert for broken spells: fear, hex and entangling roots do not break on first damage and there is no “broken spell” event form them in contrary to the other spells. AdiCCMonitor tries to guess when those spells are broken but in this case it does not know by who.

    i updated the list of cc spells (as many as i could lazily hunt down) to this, but a lot of them are still not showing up. polymorph and repentance are fine from what i have been able to see, but my freezing trap (spec'd to increase length or not, trap launcher'd or not) says no dice.

    shame this addon is not updated, best cc monitor i've ever seen :(

    Still no chance for an audio warning ?

  • Avatar of theondry theondry Sep 04, 2012 at 17:47 UTC - 0 likes

    You can get this to work by commenting out line 355 in icons.lua. It's the "cooldown:SetDrawEdge(true)". Blizz removed this function.

    I was looking in TellMeWhen's files to see how he does it there, and he has a *big* long function to reproduce the functionality.

    Hopefully someone competent (i.e., not me) can repair the sweep function.

    Any updates planned in the near (or far) future?

    Hey there,

    just finished checking the things you requested. I tested all the options except the last two (raidwarnings was the last) with the "alternativ icons" checkd aswell as uncheckd. All working fine, showing the icons as is should. Just while checking the "raidwarnings" option, the same bug appeard as I mentioned bevore. And I made some screens to show you what I mean :)

    Screen 1: Screen Screen 2: Screen Screen 3: Screen Screen 4: Screen

    Pic 1 are the settings, in pic 2 you see how it looks like, in pic 3 you see how it should look like with a "test test" raidwarning, and in pic 4 you see (or should see) what is missing (in the chat) and wrong on the screen. The blue mark is to differentiate between RaidBuffStatus and your addon.

    Hey there,

    so to 1) I have to say, I ame aware of this ;) as I am a Tank, I am an assistant aswell all of the time (and yes I checked it out too). I may be new at the addons-part, but I know the ingame features very well :) And to 2) as i already wrote up there, i know all you are just trying to tell me ;)

    When I tested it, I was:

    • IN an raid
    • an Assistant (checked)

    and I tryed writing just some normal stuff via /rw. The normal stuff went out as expected, just the warnings of your addon didn't.

    Just released 0.9.

    I would like to know if the icons properly show in all outputs (e.g. “Channel” with “Party”, “Chat” or “Error frames”) while “Alternative symbol strings” is unchecked ?

  • Avatar of Adirelle Adirelle Feb 01, 2011 at 09:44 UTC - 0 likes

    So, there are two different, but related, things :
    1) the raid warning chat channel: it is where the /rw command send messages. It requires you to be raid leader or assistant and broadcasts the messages to the whole raid. Every raid members will receive the message and have it displayed in their raid warning display area, using the orange color.
    2) the raid warning display area: this is your local raid warning display area. This is where messages sent through /rw are displayed. Your addons can also add messages directly in this area, even if you are not in raid, but you won’t have the sound and nobody else will see them.
