This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.


WakeSpams is a simple addon used to announce your usage of important abilities, such as mitigation cooldowns, powerups or interrupts, to your raid, party or in whisper to specific players. Branched out from its bigger brother (a raid cooldown tracker I'm currently working on) and skinned to the bone, WakeSpams is lightweight and straight to the point. I am willing to listen to feature requests, but I will not be bloating the addon, so an in-game config for this addon is probably as far as it goes.

What I initially intended for WakeSpams was to just have announces for Death Knights (as I wrote this addon for the maintank in our guild) and Priests (my own class), however when players of other classes requested to have an addon like this, with other similar addons not fulfilling their needs, I broadened the scope and later uploaded it here on WowAce.


  • Announces your dispels and dispel resists.
  • Announces your taunt misses (immune, resist, etc).
  • Announces your interrupts.
  • Announcement of your (and your pet's) important abilities:
    • When you activate them
    • Countdown to when they are about to fade (optional)
    • When they fade (optional)

Interface Options

You can add, modify and delete announcement settings on a per spell through the in-game config. It supports anything that has a spell ID and shows up in the combat log (this includes trinkets and pet abilities, as long as it's the right spell ID).

  1. Output Options:
    • Global and spell specific settings for where to direct announcements based each of the following situations: when solo, in a party, in a raid, in a battleground, in arena, in Wintergrasp or Tol Barad

  2. Adding spells:
    • WakeSpams can, when you add a new spell, detect the best settings for it automatically. This is currently very simple, but it will be expanded upon later.
    • Manually setting up each spell is also possible.
