RaidWatch 2

In Action

Raid Watch 2

Raid Watch is an addon for tracking events during boss fights in both raid and 5-men dungeons. It will keep track of important boss cooldowns, warn for events that requires the users attention and inform about some things that happen around him. It will do this in the form of timer bars, sounds, big warning text accompanied with a screen flash for the most important stuff and small text messages for less important things, direction arrow and more.
Raid Watch also have some functionality that is useful outside of boss fights, such as in game eqDKP display.

I have decided to disable the comments on since they are hard to keep track of, so instead:
For comments, suggestions, bug reports and general chat please post in the Raid Watch forums


From version 1.46 there is now a new module that handles the new alternate power bar that blizzard added. This bar is used in a few encounters and quests so far, for example Cho'gall for the corruption and Atramedes for the sound bar. This new plugin let you position it, or hide it completely and instead show a normal bar using the multi-purpose bar plugin that is used for health bars and other small things atm. The options for this plugin can be found under Plugins -> Alternate Power Bar.

How To


  • Timer bars Gives an easy overview of given events during an encounter
    • All timers will move between 2 or 3 anchors depending on their the length of the duration they have left. These anchors can be moved freely and placed individually. You can also configure at what duration they should move to each anchor.
  • Personal warnings Easy to react to message that is only shown to yourself when it concerns you
  • Messages Messages show about events happening to the raid or the boss in question.
  • Health frames Shows the current health of the boss, and also npcs when usefull. Can also be used to show other things besides health. One example i the Blood Power stacks in the Deathbringer Saurfang encounter.
  • Raid marking Automatic raid marks for important events that happen to players or NPCs.
  • Directions For some events you will get arrows pointing towards the point of interest.
  • Customization
    • Each event that is tracked in an encounter have detailed settings where you can turn of messages, timers and icons individually depending on your current role.
    • Colors and sounds can be individually set for each type of warning for each event.
    • Fonts, textures and colors can also be set on a global space to be able to make fast changes and have a uniform look of all objects.
  • Statistics You can see how many times you have done each encounter, how many times you defeated it, how many wipes. You can also see your fastest kill so far. All this is recorded separately for 10- and 25-men raid and also for normal and heroic.
  • Load on Demand All boss mods are in their own modules and are not loaded into memory until they are needed, and this will be done automatically. But can also be loaded manually if needed for configuration before raids.

Including mods for

  • The Ruby Sanctum
  • Icecrown Citadell
  • Crusaders Coliseum
  • Ulduar
  • Vault of Archavon
  • 5-men
    • Forge of Souls
    • Pit of Saron
    • Trial of the Champion


Raid Watch 2 is fully or partially translated to most languages, but could use some more people to help with the translation as they are important to make the mods to work for all languages. At any point where boss emotes or yells are used as triggers it will or may not work on other clients. But things that only rely on combat log events will still work.

If you want to contribute to the localization simply go to the Localization page or click the localization tab up top and then on your language and start translating. It is open for anyone as long as you have an account here.

    I'm sorry if this is the wrong place, but I've been looking for hours for the Raid/Unit frames you are using in the screenshot. Please, if you could share, it would be greatly appreciated.

    There is currently no way to disable them. But I can try and get an option for that in in the weekend. But please submit it as a ticket or it could be forgotten.

    is it possible to disable the multipurpose frames? there's no option to disable them at all. if there isnt a way, it would be good if you guys could put in an option to disable any type of bar because i really dont need the health + default bars showing up, for now i have to throw them into the corner and make them grow down off of the screen

    Hi, I've been having recent trouble with your addon. I did a fresh install and I keep getting this error (I posted it on your bug forum but nobody seems to respond... so I'll just relink the thread here)

    Any help would be appreciated!
