  • Tooltip display shows current lockouts and data for all your characters, and optionally expired lockouts
  • Secondary tooltip (per-lockout) shows lockout details including bosses available, lock status and time remaining, and can be linked into chat
  • Tracks the honor points and conquest points of all your characters, including weekly caps
  • Tracks seals, garrison resources, oil and other useful currencies (configurable display)
  • Tracks weekly World Boss Loots (Sha of Anger, Galleon, Oondasta, Nalak, Celestials, Ordos, Drov, Tarina, Rukhmar, Kazzak, Garrison Boss)
  • Tracks LFR bosses looted
  • Tracks holiday boss encounters
  • Tracks daily and weekly quests completed for each toon (mouseover entry to list completed quests)
  • Tracks Tanaan Jungle oil bosses: Doomroller, Deathtalon, Terrorfist, Vengeance (mouseover daily quests)
  • Tracks Garrison invasion rewards (mouseover weekly quests)
  • Tracks monthly Darkmoon Faire quests completed for each toon (mouseover weekly quests)
  • Tracks weekly "special" loots on the Timeless Isle and Isle of Thunder (mouseover weekly quests)
  • Tracks trade skill cooldowns (eg. Celestial cloth, Living Steel transmute, Secrets of Draenor, etc.)
  • Tracks farm planting and harvest on Sunsong Ranch (*)
  • Tracks data for all your characters across servers and factions
  • Can be configured to always show your favorite instances so you can use it like a shopping list
  • Tracks Blizzard's 10 instance per hour per account limit (*)
  • Tracking Bonus Loot Rolls (hidden by default), to help in "gaming" the bad luck protection (*)

Known Issues

SavedInstances is pretty good, but it's still not quite perfect. There are currently a few issues:

  • When first installed, SavedInstances has no knowledge of your other characters: you'll need to log into each for their information to be recorded
  • (*) = Indicates a feature displaying data that cannot be directly queried from the server, but rather is collected by the addon while observing player actions. Actions taken while the addon is disabled, or from other computers, or before a client crash, can result in this display being temporarily out-of-date or incomplete.
  • Lockout time remaining and other features may be off by an hour when your region changes to and from Daylight Savings Time, or if you manually adjust the timezone of your computer.
  • Tracking for the 10 instance per hour limit uses heuristic detection and hence may occasionally be inaccurate (notably when another player has lead and performs explicit resets), but does a reasonable job for common cases.


SavedInstances will create a new button on the minimap, and you can use it to interact with SavedInstances just fine. The addon can also be displayed using a LibDataBroker-compatible display addon. I personally use Chocolate Bar which works quite well. Finally, you can bind a key or use "/si show" to open a detached window containing the display.

    SavedInstances v4.3.8 includes:

    • NEW FEATURE (experimental): Tracking for the 5 instance per hour limit. Addon will now print informative messages when you approach/exceed the instance limit that Blizzard enforces. Mouse-over the addon name in the broker display to see your account's instance history. This feature uses heuristic detection and hence may occasionally be inaccurate (notably when another player has lead and performs explicit resets), but does a reasonable job for common cases.
    • NEW FEATURE: instances and characters may now be shown always, hidden always, or shown only when saved (the default)
    • NEW FEATURE: show some simple character info when mousing over a character name in the broker display
    • Add an option to show server name in tooltips
    • Reworked instance/character config screens
    • Update currencies on logout to reflect purchases
