Role Icons on Blizzard Raid Screen

RoleIcons is a tiny UI mod that adds Blizzard's party/raid role icons (tank/heal/dps) in several useful places in your UI, and provides several other related features.

Role icons are added to:

  • The Blizzard raid tab. The role icons replace the level field for max level players.
  • Game tooltip when you mouse over a player or raid frame
  • Target frame
  • HealBot unit frames
  • HealBot and Vuhdo tooltip when you mouse over a raid frame
  • Party/Raid chat (Blizzard chat frames, Prat, Chatter, WIM)
  • NEW in 4.2: System messages that mention group members
  • NEW in 4.3: Player popup context menus
  • NEW in 4.4: Group member tooltips on map and minimap

Other features:

  • Enhances the Blizzard Raid tab with role summary counts and class summary counts
  • Adds a role-check button to the Raid tab
  • Blizzard Raid tab can now be left-clicked to target a raid member
  • Blizzard Raid tab can now be middle-clicked to set a raid member's role
  • Automatically sets your role based on your spec when joining a raid or respeccing
  • Automatically replies to role checks from the raid leader based on your spec
  • Adds a tooltip showing the tier token breakdown for the current raid members
  • NEW in 4.0: Displays the "hosting" realm name while in cross-realm groups, showing when it changes and why
  • All features are optional and can be toggled using /ri

Basic Usage:

  • Install as usual
  • It Just Works! (tm)

Command Line Usage:

  • /ri help - Get info on command-line options
  • /ri check, /rolecheck - perform a Role Check (must be leader or raid assistant)

    Thanks for making some of the behaviours toggleable.  I primarily want the bits that add the role icons to the raid tab (for arranging groups in LFR's Leishen and such), but *hate* automated role-setting.
    That this can be easily toggled is wonderful.
    That it can be toggled is not immediately apparent from reading the description because of the "it just works" part (and my not noticing the "command-line options" below.)  It wasn't until I started mucking in the code that I saw the slash commands. :)

    Anyway... THANKS!

    Seems pretty clear to me - it automatically sets *your* (the user's) role, and automatically replies to role checks based on your (the user's) spec. It doesn't attempt to set other player's roles, as that would require leader, and may not be reliable. It also doesn't cook you breakfast or bring in the newspaper, but I didn't think it was necessary to list all the things it doesn't do. Despite that limitation many still find it useful.

    @oscarucb: Go

    Which is why I mentioned how assignments are detected by this should be clarified in the description.

    On first glance at the description with Automatically sets your role based on your spec when joining a raid or respeccing & Automatically replies to role checks from the raid leader based on your spec mentioned (among others), it can be interpreted to mean that the mod detects/handles it all automatically. When it doesn't.
