Taunt Resist - Parrot Sink

Tank Warnings is a simple addon to warn configurable messages upon certain events related to tanking, like Taunt resists or usage of special mitigation abilities that are usually used in emergencies, like Shield Wall and so on.

Supports Warriors, Druids, Paladins and Death Knights, as well as integration with BigWigs creating global or local timers for specific abilities.

Messages can be sent to scrolling combat text addons as well as common channels like Raid Warning, Raid, Party, custom channel names, etc.

    If you want to use it in 4.3 you have to change COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED function head to

    function tw:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(event, timestamp, subevent, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcname, srcflags, sourceRaidFlags, dstGUID, dstname, dstflags, destRaidFlags, spellID, spellname, spellschool, missType)

    Blizzard added 3 new parameters to this event in 4.2 and 4.3.

    I've just made an update to the addon, removing code not needed and adding new spells and abilities that are either new or were changed to be tanking abilities. This change is still in the trunk, not released yet, will have to test it on WoW before taging production ready which I hope it to be either late tonight or tomorrow during the day.

    I'd like to see a warrior's enraged regeneration added to that addon, because the druid-version (frenzied regeneration) is also available. I've done it myself for now (the code isn't that hard after all), but seeing it implemented per default would be nice.
