XLoot Frame

Comments and support available in this thread - uses your existing Curse account!

All options are available via /xloot or Interface -> AddOns -> XLoot (/xlm toggles Monitor's anchors, /xlg toggles Group's)


XLoot is a group of addons which improve looting in WoW by replacing default frames.

XLoot Frame
Replaces the Loot Frame, adding more information and behavior/appearance options.
Adds rule-based auto-looting options
Allows you to link entire loot drops in chat
XLoot Monitor
Shows a "toaster" for looting items, similar to Guild Wars 2, allowing you to either more visibly see what you and others loot, or remove loot messages from your chat box all together.
XLoot Master
Provides a more convenient Master Looter menu
XLoot Group (Please read in-game warning)
Replaces Group Loot frames, modifies Loot Alerts/Bonus Roll frame
Group frames display current roll choices, the rolled numbers, and the winner.
If you experience any problems rolling on items, please disable XLoot Group and post a report with any error. While this is extremely unlikely, it is not impossible.
I understand this may cause you to lose out on a item, which is extremely unfortunate.
The rest of XLoot can be used safely without Group.
There is a Blizzard issue when you are the opener of a chest in Group Loot mode, your rolls will not be recorded nor will the events XLoot use fire. From my experience, your roll is still counted. See this bug report: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/15508091093

Any of these modules (Frame, Group, Monitor, Master) can be disabled like any other addon if you do not want their functionality.

Not all Masque skins will work without adjustment.

    sorry for the small screen size. for some reason its how wow likes to take screen captures for me. Rather annoying and a whole nother topic.

    It seems to be a completely different anchor. The single green item by itself. without any greys is the one with the anchor I am aware of. The one with greys is just well... there. The top group everything grey and above pops up on. The lower one which is the one with an anchor is common an above.

    @Watz386: Go

    Right, it doesn't make much sense, but the checkboxes won't actually toggle it until you reload right now. Not really much of anything takes effect without a reload. That will be changing but is the current state.

    Anyway, I can hardly see that screenshot. That row looks different than the others. What has to happen for loot to appear there, or what kind of loot appears there? Is it attaching to another anchor? I've never actually seen it happen so I'm at the same time intrigued and stumped.

    Thank you for the rapid response. Its perfectly fine. Its pretty common to get people who are not willing to read. Stick on any forum long enough and you see it rampantly.

    Example Here is the screen shot showing what I am talking about its really weird. Side note the check box for the monitor in the config isn't toggling it only the slash command you said did. by the way. excellent add-on. please keep up the great work.

    @Watz386: Go

    Well, color me abashed.

    Not sure what's up with you getting two loot monitors, could you take a screenshot?

    As far as anchors, /xlg will toggle Group's, and /xlm will toggle Monitor's. There are checkmarks in the options for either module as well.

    Sorry about the snapping - We authors get a lot of people who don't pay much attention =\

    There was no green text that popped up that said xloot monitor was outdated and needed to be removed. the only loot mod I have installed is xloot. I just downloaded it today. I understand the latest versions are all alpha and things are being worked on. Its why I was posting since I had not seen anyone else have a similar problem. Sorry if you had and I just missed it.

    @Watz386: Go

    Okay, so. You read the description above this comment, right? And the green text that popped up in game and told you that "XLootMonitor" was now outdated and should be removed?

    ... Right?

    I am having a very weird error. I am having two loot monitors on my screen some how. I am also not able to get the loot monitor anchor to come back up after i first position it.

    Whoops. Fixed.

    The backdrop looks very different with the latest 2 versions.

    Its not backdropping all the loot, only partially has a backdrop for the first item.


    Is this intended?

    @lurker2: Go

    I think I fixed both issues. Close button has always been bigger, though - I just forgot to raise it above the buttons.

    And yes, Monitor is still LoD but doesn't get loaded because it's not quite functional yet.

    Glad you like it, and I appreciate the feedback.
