An addon that keeps track of the instance/raid lockouts saved against your characters, and related currencies and cooldowns. SavedInstances has the following features:

  • Tooltip display shows current lockouts and data for all your characters, and optionally expired lockouts

  • 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the addon is disabled, or from other computers, or before a client crash, can result in this display being temporarily out-of-date or incomplete.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.

    Dreamtgm, I just found a silly mistake in the .toc. I hope that's all fixed now. :)

    I can only get version 1.2.5 to work on my computer. All versions after that generate an error "Can not find LibQTip-1.0", even though the file is there in the SavedInstances directory. The r8 version gives this error on line 35 of SavedInstances.lua, so I looked at it and noticed it didn't have a "true" statement like the libs a couple of lines above this one, so I added it and the error went away, but a new error occurred at line 307 saying it was expecting a table and got nil. I gave up and rolled back to v1.2.5.

    jokeyrhyme, I see you've managed to fix heroic/normal already. Thanks for great job :)

    Some, could you raise a ticket and put in some more details? I'm interested to see what text you are seeing. When you are saved to both Normal and Heroic, do you see the exact same text twice?

    Airtonix, interesting idea. I'm actually working on a new addon right now. Hopefully going to experiment, learn a few things, then come back to this and do a few overhauls. Can you raise a ticket so I don't forget?

    Is it possible to get raids heroic or normal status for the saved id list?

    Would be great to have the ability to print the list of saved heroics/raids to whisper/party/guild chat.

    ROFL! I thought I'd had a decent enough look for similar add-ons before starting work in this. :) Yes, this is very similar to FuBar_InstanceInfoFu. I think the displayed information is a little more configurable in mine, but you should definitely check them both out.

    Does this do the same as InstanceInfoFu? or is it something different?
