I am a raid leader for my guild on Alleria. I like others seem to have run into a problem with "how to fill raids" or a priority system.
We use the "EPGP" system for loot and I would like to use a similar system for raid invite priority. I have searched quite a bit for something that will fill my needs but can't seem to find it. I can make a spreadsheet to do the work but, I really prefer in-game systems to save me the hassle of alt tabbing constantly when I need to do the raids.
I think an addon like this would be a huge asset to many guilds who are in a similar position.
Here is my basic idea for the addon:
returns a "priority" value that you could sort by. Very similar to EPGP window.
Must be able to sort by all the values and have the ability to assign "additional attendence" , this would be for people who don't come when they are spose to as a penalty, effect would be they lose some priority in relation to others.
Needs to be viewable ingame and editable ingame
Nice to haves but not needed:
Would be nice if you could "right click" in the window to invite people, or perhaps an option to invite "top 8/top 22 / top 10 / top 25" ... maybe a slider bar, this would allow you to do most of the heavy lifting with the addon, then grab the last 2 people or so based on raid composition needed.
It does NOT need to be sharable with anyone else. However it would be a nice bonus.
If its not sharable, some type of "report list" function would be almost as good.
Doesn't need to form list from everyone in guild. I can type out the names one at a time. Also this would make the list smaller and simpler.
Perhaps a little note area on the name line such as "dps main/ can heal" or something similar.
Ability to pull the list from in-game calendar (this would be for assigning the signup point award)
Ability to pull list from current raid (for the attendance award list)
This is just the general outline but I think it gets the main idea across, I would love to discuss it more with anyone interested. Maybe its possible to "break" epgp addon just right and use some kind of locally saved file to deal with the data save. I am a complete newb when it comes to this addon stuff.
Please post here with any offer of assistance, my appreciation in advance.
Hi, it might be not exactly what you are looking for but maybe it is a good starting point. If you have any more questions about it feel free to ask. Maybe I could implement some of your ideas or needs into this add too.
