About Premade Group Finder


I have been working on an addon that will alarm you and notify you about premade groups that are of your interest. I know some people here are looking for the rare mounts on Argus and it can be hard and frustrating to not know which rares are up at any given moment considering it is changing 4 times per day. Here is where the addon comes in. Now you can enter custom keywords such as "blistermaw is up" or "houndmaster" and with just the press of a button the addon will search through every single group and notify you if it has come up with any matches! It could also be that you want to do a world boss and once again just press a button and the addon will notify you and also sign you up if you wish. There are a lot of different applications for PGF!

  • Refreshes and searches through all premade groups after your personal keywords with just the press of a button
  • Keeps track of which Argus rares you have killed
  • Profiles, to quickly swap between keywords
  • Sorts all groups by date rather than ID
  • Minimap button with functions to open options, toggle enable/disable and load profiles
  • Blacklist troll leaders or filter out keywords to avoid
  • Once a group is found containing your keywords you will be notified in the following ways:
    • Everything is customizable for your preferences.
    • A raid warning sound will be played!
    • You will automatically whisper yourself about the name of the group and what keyword was found!
    • You will automatically whisper all your chosen friends about that a group that you are looking for has been found. It will also let them know about which keyword was found and the name of the group to notify them as well!
    • You will automatically get the application dialog to the group or even groups if there are several!
    • A movable text indicating a group has been found and informing you which one
    • Your WoW-icon on the taskbar flashes
  • PS. It will only notify you once per group that is found to avoid spam.
