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the addon is disabled, or from other computers, or before a client crash, can result in this display being temporarily out-of-date or incomplete.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.

    This reset bug should be fixed starting in version 5.1.0 (currently in beta). You'll need to manually reset the data for this week though.

    Hello! I'm using version r209. There seems to be a bug wherein it's carrying over old information: showing my priest as saved right now to the LFR raids I did last week, down to the 2/3 bosses I did for some. However, I haven't done them yet this week. (It's doing it up to today, not just at reset day) There is no error message.

    Since 5.x 40-man lockout tooltips do not include boss information. This is a bug in Blizzard raid lockout display, and SavedInstances just displays the available information.

    Should be fixed in 4.8.0 beta 2. You might need to also reset your addon settings using the "defaults" button.
