7x (Legion) Updates Still Pending

I am planning on updating the addon in the near future as time permits. I am actively playing WoW again, so this will help drive me to update my addons as I use them all myself and will eventually get to fixing any bugs in them over the next weeks/months.


This project has reverted back to a beta status since 5.0.4. The addon still works as a library for addons which call it for custom alerts and Seems todo okay with normal achievement alerts but there are some issues that i'll be working to resolve over time when I can. If you do not subscribe to using beta software, I would ask you opt out of using Glamour at this time.


Please report all bugs on the Glamour CuseForge website here:

Please do NOT make bug reports in the comments on this page. Lengthy, inconclusive bug reports posted as comments will simply be deleted and ignored. Bug reports need to include the following:

  • What was happening when you encountered the error.
  • What region is your client.
  • What is the error text/description of the error you are experiencing.
  • Please include the names of any/all other Achievement related addons had enabled at the time of the error.


Glamour is a stand-alone replacement for the default Blizzard Achievement Alert frame. It currently offers the following improvements over the Blizzard built-in alert interface:

  • draggable anchor for relocating where your achievements are shown on your screen.
  • increases the amount of alerts from 2 to 24 allowing your screen to really pop when you fire multiple achievements together.
  • adds the ability to instantly hide an alert frame by right-clicking it.
  • left-clicking the alert frame will now open the achievement interface without closing all other open windows.
  • Captures Blizzard Achievement Alerts (Personal and Guild)
  • Captures Blizzard Dungeon Completion Alerts
  • Captures Blizzard Toast Alerts
  • Full set of slash commands to operate and test alerts.

In addition Glamour allows other addons to send customized alerts to its frame, mirroring the fun and attention grabbing nature of the original Blizzard Achievement Alert frame. I created this interface to have a shared frame to hold alerts for when multiple addons fire alerts together. Developers are welcome to plugin to the alert interface for their own addons as well.

Suggested Addons

For an example of addons that utilize this interface see:

  • Titan CurrencyTracker supports Glamour alerts for Token/Currency changes.
  • Titan Reputation supports Glamour alerts for Faction Standing Changes.
