SavedInstances

An addon that keeps track of the instance/raid lockouts saved against your characters, and related currencies and cooldowns. SavedInstances has the following features:

  • Tooltip display shows current lockouts and data for all your characters, and optionally expired lockouts
  • Secondary tooltip (per-lockout) shows lockout details including bosses available, lock status and time remaining, and can be linked into chat
  • Tracks the valor points, justice points, honor points and conquest points of all your characters, including weekly caps
  • Tracks charms of good fortune and other useful currencies (configurable display)
  • Tracks weekly World Boss Loots (Sha of Anger, Galleon, Oondasta, Nalak)
  • Tracks LFR and Flex bosses looted
  • Tracks holiday boss encounters
  • Tracks daily and weekly quests completed for each toon (mouseover entry to list completed quests)
  • Tracks monthly Darkmoon Faire quests completed for each toon
  • Tracks weekly "special" loots on the Timeless Isle and Isle of Thunder (mouseover weekly quests)
  • Tracks trade skill cooldowns (eg. Celestial cloth, Living Steel transmute, etc.)
  • Tracks farm planting and harvest on Sunsong Ranch (*)
  • Tracks data for all your characters across servers and factions
  • Can be configured to always show your favorite instances so you can use it like a shopping list
  • Tracks Blizzard's 10 instance per hour per account limit (*)
  • New in 5.8: Tracking Bonus Loot Rolls (hidden by default), to help in "gaming" the bad luck protection (*)

Known Issues

SavedInstances is pretty good, but it's still not quite perfect. There are currently a few issues:

  • When first installed, SavedInstances has no knowledge of your other characters: you'll need to log into each for their information to be recorded
  • (*) = Indicates a feature displaying data that cannot be directly queried from the server, but rather is collected by the addon while observing player actions. Actions taken while the addon is disabled, or from other computers, or before a client crash, can result in this display being temporarily out-of-date or incomplete.
  • Lockout time remaining and other features may be off by an hour when your region changes to and from Daylight Savings Time, or if you manually adjust the timezone of your computer.
  • Tracking for the 10 instance per hour limit uses heuristic detection and hence may occasionally be inaccurate (notably when another player has lead and performs explicit resets), but does a reasonable job for common cases.

Usage

SavedInstances will create a new button on the minimap, and you can use it to interact with SavedInstances just fine. The addon can also be displayed using a LibDataBroker-compatible display addon. I personally use Chocolate Bar which works quite well. Finally, you can bind a key or use "/si show" to open a detached window containing the display.

    oscarucb,

    Do you have a timeframe for a working version for 6.0 beta? There are some spectacular LUA errors when trying to use the current version (it's quite broken). I'd be happy to help test it.

    Would it be possible to hide tracking for certain things? For example, I have 9 90s, and the OCD side of me sees LFR: Siege of Orgrimmar listed for a toon still progressing, and I feel compelled to do 8/14 on all my other toons too. I'd like to just be able to hide certain tracking features as needed. Especially since we can use ALT to show all data already. Thanks!

    Would it be possible to add 'Test of Valor' tracking so you can see how far along each character is in that portion of the Legendary quest? (Perhaps also track the other steps?)

    @glayde: Go

    Not possible to sort by the login screen order - that information is not available to addons. SI does have a few options to control the sorting (under the "Characters" section of /si config).

    Were the characters always sorted alphabetically? Sorting by the character order at character select would be pretty useful.

    There are many bag addons that already allow you to view the inventory of your other characters. I'd really rather not go there.

    Could you track how many wheat sheep wood brick and stone each character has in their inventory for the barrens weekly?

    (Stone, Meat, Oil, Lumber)

    @hshh: Go

    Neither change is required for correct operation - the existing general mechanism already handles weeklies it doesn't know about.
