[WoW Classic] Patch 1.13.3 LUA API Change

Which addon are they targeting with his?

HonorSpy. It may have been the culprit that was putting serious strain on servers in certain zones. There’s a Reddit post about it somewhere…


Honorspy and classiclfg mainly. Also if you use any share function for spy beyond the channels blizzard now currently allows (most people don’t they just use discord callouts).

I thought honorspy used the combat log though? Wouldn’t this not matter at all for that addon? And they “fixed” that with the change to the range the combat log uses.

I assume this is the “promised” break to ClassicLFG… An addon that has operated since day 1 and no one has really seemed to care and if anything has helped more people make groups… but sure, why not.

This will break my multiboxing addon!! I use a custom channel to make the party…

Can you leave it for channels with less than say 10 characters in it?

(yeah I know who cares about multiboxing right…)


Almost no addons communicate in channels blizzard is restricting. as others said, like 99% of addons are fine with party, raid, guild, whisper.

The real concern is addon authors for the addons they are intenting to break with this are ALREADY talking about just buildinga mesh network over whisper syncs, which means blizzard will get mad and break that next, and that will break a few addons then. The authors in question don’t care about the spirit of game and would rather watch blizzard gut everything.

On another note, It’s nice to see SAY coming back. I may be able to put the SAY message back on kazzak Mark out in the world. But we’ll see.

With say/yell change in classic, will you guys (blizzard) bring that to retail as well?


this is going to break roleplay addons, and is basically a death knell for classic rp.

I was misinformed

Oh for goodness sake, why not wait till tomorrow before you go all doom and gloom. Lets see for ourselves. More than likely you’re wrong.

I don’t see RP addons being broken by these changes at all actually. Maybe FUTURE changes if these changes don’t deter the addons they ARE aiming to break, but THESE changes should be no issue for RP.

They are indeed wrong, at least for the sake of Total RP 3. All this kills in TRP3 is the Map scan. https://twitter.com/Solanya_/status/1204153556821008385

No, see my above response.

that was “Spy”. Honorspy tracks players honor over the course of the week to give you the best idea of where you’ll be at when honor updates on tuesdays.

Also, according to the MRP developer, it shouldn’t affect them as they use whisper and party channels. This can be found on the TRP discord (and how I have this knowledge).

was misinformed by some others, apologies. posts deleted/edited to clarify

Not the threat meter and that’s ALL that matters bud.

Not what I like to hear in regards to Classic.


This kills the addon Greenwall

RP addons will be killed except if SAY and YELL are enabled while CHANNEL is disabled. Some rework will still be needed on our side but it should make it.

BTW this would be great to have SAY ands YELL enabled for C_ChatInfo.SendAddonMessage on Retail as well, sometimes we don’t need to broadcast stuff to the whole world and this would save bandwidth / processing power for a lot of players.

so will they finally give us a honor ranking on their website like we had in vanilla if they are breaking honor spy
