CastYeller (CY) is aimed at replacing spell announcing macros. It comes with a little set of spell and events to announce. It is configurable via the slash command (/cy).

You can select:

  • which spells to announce (depending on your class),
  • which events to announce:
    • Casting starts (for non-instant spells),
    • Casting of instant spells,
    • Casting failures,
    • Spell misses.
  • which channels to announce to:
    • Emote,
    • Say,
    • Battleground chat,
    • Party chat,
    • Raid chat,
    • Whisper (for targeted spells),
    • Yell,
    • Raid warning,
    • User-defined chat channel.

The list of announced spell is listed here : CastYeller/Announces.

Things you have to know

There are some things that you cannot configure but that you should be aware of :

  • CastYeller is disabled when soloing,
  • Each spell has its own set of events, channels and conditions. You can only disable some of them, not add new ones.
  • A lot of announces use the pseudo-channel "broadcast". It is resolved dynamically :
    • If you're in a battleground, announces will be send to battleground chat (or dropped if it is disabled),
    • If you're in a raid, announces will be send to raid chat (or dropped if it is disabled),
    • If you're in a party, announces will be send to party chat (or dropped if it is disabled).

'Notice there is no raid to party fallback.'
