    Default channel is set to "Highest available". Guild echo unchecked. (but I'm in a guild anyway)

    Didn't get the update yet, but as far as I can tell it used "AUTO" for chat type in you're not in any group.

    I'd argue a lua error is *always* a flaw in the addon and not the user. If the user specifies something that doesn't make sense, the addon should either choose some sane backup behavior or as a last resort give an explanatory error message - a lua crash does not qualify...

    What is the output user setting?

    I'm inclined to only consider this a bug if it happens when "AUTO" is selected.
    If the user has picked a group channel to announce into and then tries to award while out of group that would fall under user error imho :P

    With that said I'll add the instance chat to options / auto output since with the inclusion of Flex it is now possible to have x-realm masterlooted groups and also make the auto functionality such that it goes to widest audience available.

    So: Raid Warning > Instance Chat > Raid/Party > Say.

    Thanks for the excellent report. I'll assign Dridzt and look in to it myself when I get a chance, should be as simple as verifying chat target and falling back to say.
