XLoot Frame

Notes about new version and the major changes made

If you are experiencing more than one problem, please make sure you completely remove XLoot and download it fresh from here or the Curse Client.

After that, please create or comment on a existing ticket with your error(s)

All options are available via /xloot or Interface -> AddOns -> XLoot (/xlm toggles Monitor's anchors, /xlg toggles Group's)


XLoot is a small group of addons which improve looting in WoW by replacing default frames.

XLoot Frame
Replaces the Loot Frame, adding more information and behavior/appearance options.
XLoot Group
Replaces Group Loot frames, modifies Loot Alerts/Bonus Roll frame
Group frames display current roll choices, the rolled numbers, and the winner.
If you experience any problems rolling on items, please disable XLoot Group and post a report with any error.
I understand this may cause you to lose out on a item, which is extremely unfortunate.
However, I am unable to debug it myself as I no longer play, but welcome any errors or volunteer debugging efforts.
The rest of XLoot can be used safely without Group.
XLoot Monitor
Shows a "toaster" for looting items, similar to Guild Wars 2, allowing you to either more visibly see what you and others loot, or remove loot messages from your chat box all together.
XLoot Master
Provides a more convenient Master Looter menu

Any of these modules (Frame, Group, Monitor, Master) can be disabled like any other addon if you do not want their functionality.

Masque Skins

Not all Masque skins will work without adjustment.

Please see XLoot\skins.lua (Comments at the top) and then XLoot\SKIN_TWEAKS.lua (See examples and add tweak for skin here)

Old versions

I understand that these are large changes and may take adjustment. If you have suggestions as to how to improve the mod or something you want from the old version, please let me know.

If you are offended by these changes, a mop-compatible version will remain here but will not be supported: http://www.wowace.com/addons/xloot/files/429-mop-3-release/

I welcome your feedback.

    I'll look in to it when I get back, which unfortunately will be a couple weeks. Thanks for the report and regression window.

    @Vampyrate: Go

    It can. The button is more direct, you choose the channel and when the button shows up in Options and the button simply links it. I'll probably bring back a menu at some point, but dropdowns (like static popups, see comment below about taint) can be problematic and annoying.

    I should probably list the features for each one, but the screenshots above just aren't in a group and the default for the link button is "grouped only"

    Before I switch over to this full and complete Xloot (compared to the older, broken up one), does this one have loot announcements? I'm a guild/raid leader and I always announce loot when it drops especially now with the countdown on the bonus coin rolls. The screenshot above doesn't list a clickable word for announcing so I wanted to ask before diving in.

    Every iteration seems to make it more solid and ready for release, any way to lower the quality of items picked up to allow everything to be seen and default it to the white items you have set up now? for low level toons they don't see much in the way of monitoring until later in the game. For people that don't see the need or don't want to be bothered, wouldn't even notice it and for others that do want to see it, it would be an option away. Just a request. Thanks.

    Oh yeah! I'm talking about the actual loot buttons. I think there's some standard size throughout the UI for item buttons, and I believe the old Xloot used that. These new ones are slightly smaller.

    @SmuvMoney: Go

    I agree! Really really miss the item counter in lootmonitor. It was super nice and one of the main reasons I use this addon. Hope you add it back in!

    @Lombra: Go

    Remind me which button size you're talking about? There's a few :p
