Default Sheepdog: your new crowd-control protection pet!

Sheepdog

Useful to all classes this very simple add-on will prevent you from accidentally attacking crowd-controlled units. Sheepdog will keep them safe from you!
Features:

  • It barks when you target a crowd-controlled unit.
  • It warns you gently when a unit has been crowd-controlled somewhere nearby so you can be a little bit more cautious with your AOEs.
Sheepdog doesn't bite!

Currently detected crowd-control spells:

  • Banish
  • Bind Elemental
  • Fear (Should be just glyphed-Fear but there is no way to tell them apart)
  • Freezing Trap Effect
  • Hex
  • Hibernate
  • Polymorph
  • Repentance
  • Sap
  • Seduction
  • Shackle Undead
  • Wyvern Sting
Type /sheepdog (Graphical UI) or /shed (command line UI) for options (sounds and behavior).


Sheepdog supports AddonLoader: it will be loaded when you enter in combat or if you access to its configuration.

hmm apparently not, it keeps its original spell ID (5782). I'll just add Fear, shouldn't be a problem anyway...

it would be useful to include units that are the target of crowd control spell casts even if the cast hasn't completed yet.

unfortunately, SPELL_CAST_START events do not specify the intended target
