PLEASE NOTE: Non-enUS clients may have errors or strange behavior.

What is it? - A simple combat log that displays events similar to how SCT/D would in a log, using icons to display spells/skills. It seperates incoming events (left side) from out going events (right side) from misc. events (middle).

What all can it show?
- Your hits, spells, misses, heals, etc...
- Incoming damage, spells, heals, buffs, debuffs, etc...
- Power gain
- Honor, Reputation, SKill, and Experience gain
- Mob/People you have slain
- Combat start/stop
- Timestamps and details in tooltips
- High hit stat tracking for both incoming and outgoing skills.
- Combat Summaries
- Shift+Click to paste events of history into Chat Edit Box

Where did it come from? - Original idea by Bant. Coding help/samples from Andalia`s SideCombatLog and CombatChat.

How do I use it? - Unzip EavesDrop into your interface\addons directory. For more info on installing, please read install.txt. Now just run WoW and once logged in, you will see the EavesDrop in the middle of your screen. Left click the EavesDrop Tab to drag it. Right click the EavesDrop Tab to see the options menu.

My peridoic damage is not showing up in the combat log or on the screen! How do I fix it? - You have turned off periodic damage on the Advanced Options under Interface options. Make sure the "Periodic Damage" check box is checked, even if you have Damage unchecked.

How do I reset EavesDrop or load another users settings? - EavesDrop uses the Ace2 profile system. By default all characters use the same profile. You may change this for each character using the Profile area of the option menu. You can reset the options for the current profile using the Rest option in the menu.

How do I change the fonts? - EavesDrop uses the games default fonts. You will need to use a font program like ClearFont of Fontabulous to change it.

Please post all errors and suggestions on http://grayhoof.wowinterface.com/ using the provided forms.

    Hello Grayhoof,

    thank you for this addon, its great. Can you please make it possible to set the dmg and heal filter higher than 2k? I think its better without slider, just a textbox is enough. Any fixed maximum value for filter maybe doesnt scale with future expansions of wow.

    A second wish is to get the numbers shorter, examples:

        1245 -> 1k
        15487 -> 15k
        654875 -> 654 k
        2154875 -> 2m

    A last and not so important suggestion is to make it possible to switch between effective and overall dmg or heal, examples what to show, if 1k dmg done, 2k absorbed:

        1k (2k)

    Thank you very much for this great addon, greetings
