    Default [Addon] Roles

    A convenient menu for changing roles, equipment, and wardrobe.

    Download

    @Curse | @RiftUI

    Usage

    Left-click to open/close menu
    Middle-click to open configuration window
    Right-click to move menu

    Features

    Two equipment sets can be associated with each role, for example PvE and PvP.
    • Uses the game's built-in /saveequip sets (20 available).
    • Replacement items allow you to reuse an existing set with minor modifications, such as a synergy crystal or trinket.
    Two wardrobe sets can be associated with each role.

    Custom macro text can be associated with each role. This can include any macro commands supported by the game, as well as commands for other addons.

    If KaruulAlert is installed, you can use drop-down lists to easily associate an alert set and subset with each role.

    You can assign custom names to equipment and wardrobe sets for easy identification.

    Interface

    Menu uses role names you've assigned in the soul tree window.

    Role icons (tank/heal/damage/support) are automatically updated.

    Menu can be customized in the following ways:
    • Sort roles by slot, name, or type
    • Extend menu up/down or left/right
    • Adjust spacing between menu items
    • Adjust menu width to fit custom names
    • Specify inactive fade level
    • Place menu anywhere on screen
    • Show/hide background
    Current role is displayed to show you which role is active at a glance.

    You can choose which roles to include in the menu, which lets you exclude test specs and infrequently used role slots.

    Screenshots







    Commands

    /roles (open configuration window)
    /roles toggle (open/close menu)
    /roles lock (lock/unlock menu location)
    /roles reset (reset menu location to center)

    Known Issues

    After acquiring a new role slot, the KaruulAlert set drop-down list does not immediately update with the additional set. This will be fixed in the next release. In the meantime, you can type /reloadui to resolve the issue.

    (This is fixed in 2.0.)

    Thanks.

    A side note on replacement items: [ctrl], [alt], and [shift] modifiers will work with these, so if there is an item you want to equip only when a modifier is pressed, just place the modifier before the name of the item.

    Default Version 1.3.1 Released

    Version 1.3.1 prevents the LFG tool from overwriting your saved role icons with your group-assigned role. This is done by prohibiting changes to role icons when you are inside an instance group of 5 or fewer. Role icons will continue to update normally upon respecs and point reallocation when you are outside an instance, not in a group, or in a group of 6 or more.

    I wonder what's the difference between using this addon or easily macros, such as "role" and "/saveequip" ?

    I mean, is there any added value ?

    not having to use up 20 action bar slots (if you have 20 roles).

    Basically what Noshei said.

    While you can mimic everything this addon does with macros, the advantages to using the addon are:
    • You can free up several action bar slots
    • You can free up several macro slots (and you don't have to drag them out to your action bar in every role)
    • Having the role icon and name in the menu (with multiple sorting options) makes it easy to identify and click on the correct role.
    • The addon can distinguish between left and right clicks, making it easy to support two equipment sets for each role.
    • There is less typing needed which makes it convenient and less error-prone to modify your role and equipment settings.

    Very clean and useful addon. Been looking for something just like this!

    Couple things here.

    Can you add in an option to change the height of the menu, it is rather long with 20 roles.

    Also if you name a role in the Native UI and then reopen the Roles UI it doesn't update the names in the list. I'm guessing there is a missing event on the API side here, if so what you may want to do is add an update button that would make the addon pull down the names of the roles.

    Sure, I can add that in. I only have 10 roles at the moment but I can see how having 20 would make the menu a bit too long.

    Oops. I do actually retrieve the latest role names when the config window opens but then totally forgot to update the select box entries after doing so. Will get that fixed ASAP.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Default Version 1.4 Released

    I've just uploaded version 1.4, which includes the following:

    - A new settings option for menu height. It defaults to the original height and can be changed via a slider in the SETTINGS tab.

    - A bug fix for the role select list in the config window not updating with changed role names and new role slots. If you edit your role names in the soul tree window and/or buy a new role slot from the trainer, the config window will now show the correct role list the next time you open it (if config is already open, just close and reopen).

    Thanks again to Noshei for reporting this bug.
