Main Screen


Re-Write of the original HeadCount. This rewrite is to move to Ace3 and WoW 4.0

HeadCount2 is a configurable World of Warcraft add-on that automatically tracks raid attendance, loot, and boss kills.

HeadCount2 answers the following questions:

  • How long is a player active in a raid?
  • How long is a player on standby for a raid?
  • How long is a player offline during a given raid?
  • What loot dropped during a raid and who received it?
  • What boss kills occurred during a given raid and who was there for the kill?



  • Raid creation: Automatically creates a new raid as you join or start a raid.
  • Raid finalization: Automatically ends an existing raid as you leave a raid.
  • Raid management: The user can end raids, remove raids, or remove all raids on demand.
  • Raid zone tracking: Zone name are automatically added to raids as you zone into a raid instance for the first time.

Player attendance

  • Player tracking: Players are tracked based on their timed participation in the raid. Players can be tracked based on configurable raid groups for raid list activity (active raiding players) and wait list players (queue/standby players).
  • Player removal: The user can remove tracked information for specific players on demand.
  • Player history: View specific player history for a raid to see how and when a player moved from activity to standby to offline and back during a raid.
  • No list tracking: Players can be tracked as non-raid list and non-standby players as needed. Players that go offline are automatically taken out of the raid and wait list groups for tracking purposes.
  • Integrated wait list: Receive whispers from members outside of the raid group in order to track them.

Boss kills

  • Boss kill tracking: Tracks the world bosses killed during the course of a raid and the raid list members present for the kill.
  • Boss kill removal: The user can remove tracked boss kills on demand.
  • Manual boss kill: The user can add a boss kill to the current raid at the current time with the current roster via the config UI


  • Loot tracking: Tracks loot received during a raid based on configurable item level quality (default: Epic item level or higher)
  • Loot removal: The user can remove specific pieces of loot on demand.
  • Loot exclusion: The user can manage loot exclusion which will prevent certain pieces of loot from being tracked during a raid.


  • Export: Users can export current raid attendance and received loot information to one of a number of formats (CSV, XML, Text, EQdkp XML string, phpBB forum post, phpBB with ItemStats forum post).


  • Boss kill broadcast: The user can optionally broadcast when the raid kills a boss to a configurable chat channel.
  • Loot broadcast: The user can optionally broadcast when a player receives a valid piece of loot to a configurable chat channel.


  • Fault tolerance: If the mod owner quits WoW, restarts WoW, or reloads their UI during a raid and returns to the game, HeadCount2 will attempt to gracefully recover from the outage to continue tracking the active raid.
  • Attendance delay: Configure how often HeadCount should manage attendance updates to increase or decrease performance and/or accuracy.

    kagaro, Does not seem to be logging boss kills ... but not seeing tonnes complaining I am figuring it might be me. Is there a way to start clean? (uninstall / reinstall or do you recommend something else?) Thanks, Stano

    @Trenae: Go

    what export format are you using?

  • Avatar of orthwein orthwein Jun 30, 2011 at 02:00 UTC - 0 likes

    For anyone having trouble exporting to xml in 4.2, edit Util.lua and 'string.replace' in lines 257-261 with 'string.gsub', and it should work.

    Hi, First off thanks for the addon, it is awesome for attendance tracking.

    One thing I noticed last night that has occured in the past I just hadn't noticed it until now is that when I export it it gives all the attendance stuff correctly but then the loot all shows as normal loot. Is there a bug or just a setting I need to change to get it to show heroic loot for the appropriate bosses? My guild is currently 3/12 heroic so hopefully it is something easy to change/setting to change for individual fights.

    HeadCount2 has been incredibly helpful so far, makes my life a lot easier. :)

    Any intention of adding support for alts, or is there a way to configure the current version to recognize them? Several players in my raid (myself included) often swap between characters depending on an encounter, and I'd really like to be able to merge the characters rather than having separate attendance for each.

    Ill check it tonight, the only thing I can think of, is that there was some un documented change for instance info

  • Avatar of Stanoslav Stanoslav Apr 28, 2011 at 15:59 UTC - 0 likes

    Headcount2 does not seem to be recognizing or exporting boss kills (before and after 4.1, updating to latest). The export file just contains a "<bossKills />" where the bosskills would normally be. In game tool also shows no boss kills. This was recently true for an Icecrown run, BoT and BWD run.

    Anyone seeing this behaviour ... any ideas on how to resolve? Something I am or have done wrong?
