Fubar_ConvergeFu is a simple Fubar plugin designed primarily for use by officers of the Guild Converge to assist them in running day-to-day guild activities, most of which are related to raiding.

Members of the guild are required to have certain addons installed in order to be permitted to raid:

  • CTRA or oRA2
  • Deadly Bossmods
  • Omen

All this addon does is provide some easily accessible menu options for sending messages to guild-chat, hooking ready-checks, item-checks, timer-bars et-al so that all officers can perform these functions easily.

Why is this useful?

For the guild, party and raid messages - the European nature of the guild means that although English is the spoken language of the guild, the members for whom it is their first language are the minority. This therefore provides some consistency and quality in the messages the officers of the guild issue to the other members.

For the item checks, ready checks, version checks et-al, sure these functions are available via numerous /slash commands but for the majority of members, playing WoW is more of a fun experience and less of a programming exercise and anything that we can do to reinforce that "fun vs frustration" effort is a good thing.

This addon will likely be updated on an on-going basis initially simply to add in more item-check targets (other potions/elixirs/foods etc) before stabilising at some "idealised" level.

Converge Specific?

This addon is currently coded to be specific to Converge (messages have guild-name and key member names built-in) however less specific versions of this addon may become available in the future.
