Grim Reaper

Grim Reaper

Your tank died? Why? That's the question really.

Grim Reaper gives you a very quick and easy access to the relevant combat log of any raid member with just a flick of the mouse or the press of a key. It will also monitor raid member health levels for the duration of combat log data and will show the health of any unit alongside their concise combat log display.


There are several ways to use Grim Reaper.

  • My personal favorite is to leave it hidden most of the time and use the hotkey activator. If you go into Blizzard key bindings and scroll down to Grim Reaper and setup a key for the Quick View function (I use F10), then whenever I need the reaper window I hold the quick view button, mouseover to who I'm interested in and release the quick view key. This locks the view onto that player and you can scroll around and do your investigating. When you're done with it, simply press the quick view key again and Grim Reaper hides itself once more.
  • Others will prefer to setup a keybind to lock the reaper on a target and leave it open all the time, perhaps watching their main tank.
  • Some people prefer to dock Grim Reaper onto the tooltip, but this offers reduced functionality as the display is non-interactive in this mode, but it does offer a quick and simple view.

    I posted a "fan fix" over on WoWInterface, although I actually wanted to commit to the repository, but I don't know how to commit to another's repository ..

    Edit: Swix has just commited to Grim Reaper's repository :)

    This addon was broken by 4.1 because Blizzard added a new parameter to the combat log. There is a fan update available (see ticket 19) but no update by the author.

    The fan update for 4.1 will break again in 4.2 because Blizzard is adding two more parameters to the combat log.


    If you are no longer interested in maintaining this addon, you should ask for volunteers willing to take over.

    Yeah, you need to drop Dewdrop-2.0 to completely get away from Ace2.

    LDB and keybindings work fine for me in r89. It's just the minimap icon that is gone.

    Yeah I tried the Lib and the nolib of the r88 and r89. No joy on getting Grim Reaper window to display. I use bazooka for LDB and it does not see it. The three key-binding options do appear, tried setting and using, they do nothing. Tried numerous / commands to bring up anything and nada. Love this addon, but it is currently non-functional.
