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.

    when you logout via /logout or /quit the client technically sees you leave the raid group so thats why its making a new raid if you alt-f4 to exit it wont happen. ill try to work on a fix to detect the logout and not auto end the raid in that case.

    mackaque: ill see what i can do right now waitlists are stored via each raid. You could added them to your new raid in a waitlist group i.e. et your waitlist groups to 6-8 and put them in there when you make your second raid or have them re-whisper you.

    Another point I would like to know if we can do about it is if we want to keep the attendance of our waitlist in Headcount ... the problem I founded is if we start with a raid (Baradin Hold) I ask ppl to msg me for the wait list .. we kill the boss then we switch to another raid (Blackwing Descent) and since they are only in the Baradin Hold raid as waitlist we see them at 50% attendance for the day but they were there all night rdy to help. Is it possible to fix something about this like adding them manually to the other raid so they are 100% of the night or I don't know.

    Thanks Kagaro, I appreciate all the work that you have done in updating this mod. I'm just having 1 problem still and thats the fact that the raid still resets if i reload or logout for a second. I know you increased the lag interval but is there anyway to further increase it or let us know how to increase the time interval.

    Again, thanks for all the hard work.

    I have a small question about your addon.

    First of all it's pretty solid atm I like the way it works. The only thing missing for me in this addon is the way to track what a player looted in all the raid saved in Headcount. For example I would like to be able to write the name of a player somewhere and then it would search all the raid I have saved and list me all the loot he got, and the date he got them so we can know very fast what loot we gave to this person. I wonder if it's something you had in mind to add in a future patch because I think it would be a good addition to your addon. Another question I had was about sharing the data with other ppl. Like all the raid I have recorded in my Headcount I would like to be able to share them with other Officier so we all have the same stats so if I miss a raid someone else have the data to get infos of older raid. I guess there is a file somewhere that keep all the data so I could share this file with them just need a confirmation about this

    Thanks and keep up the good work
