Warning – Addon not working?


Since I stopped playing WoW some time ago, I'm unfortunately unable to maintain it anymore. 

There have been several reports about the addon not working recently, so I assume there have been some API changes that render it unusable.


If anyone is seriously interested in taking over, I'd gladly enable them to do so. Just drop me a message.


In case you've been upgrading to the beta provided by sephtin and have issues after this update, please follow his suggestion:


"Try resetting your Saved Variables:

 With wow closed, delete the saved variables files fount at:   ..\WoW\_classic_\WTF\Account\<account>\SavedVariables\TankWarningsClassic.lua (and .bak).
That should correct vars not saving."


I apologize, but without being able to test I cannot reasonably put out new versions or fix issues with newer patches.

Send chat warnings for critical tank cooldowns and/or failed ability attempts.

By default, warnings will be written either as a raid message or a party message, otherwise the addon will be inactive. Can be switched to raid warnings and saying or yelling instead.

Use /tankwarnings or /twc to open the options panel.


Thanks to MrFIXIT for cleaning up the code and avoiding possible conflicts with other addons!

Supported Languages


Since the combat logs have no spell ID in classic, the ability names need to be known for specific languages. Therefore translations for the abilities are required for it to work.

Currently supported:

  • English
  • German
  • Russian
  • Chinese (simplified)

New translations are welcome, please look into the "Localization.lua" file if you would like to contribute.
