Client Version: 5.0.4


GTFO provides an audible alert when you’re standing in something you’re not supposed to be standing in. In some cases, you’ll be warned before you start taking damage. This mod improves your situational awareness and is recommended for dungeon divers and raiders of all skill levels as even the most seasoned veteran sometimes needs a reminder to GTFO.

It’s particularly useful for individuals that play with their spell graphics turned down as well as assisting with PvP when you can’t tell who’s casting the AOE.


  • 4 distinct audible alerts for different types of damage
    • High Alert – Dungeon/raid encounter AOE that you want to get out of it ASAP
    • Low Alert – PvP and low damage AOE, use your best judgment whether or not to move
    • Fail Alert – AOE you should have moved out of the way of, but it’s too late (e.g. KZ void zone, Sindragosa bomb)
    • Friendly Fire Alert – AOE radiating from a teammate’s body, one of you needs to move


  • Tuned for dungeons and raids in original vanilla WoW, Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, and Mists of Pandaria
  • Alert you before you start taking damage (when possible, in some cases)
  • Alert you during vehicle fights when your vehicle is in danger (e.g. Malygos, Flame Leviathan)
  • Tank and non-tank specific alerts
  • Visual alerts available when used with Weak Auras or Power Auras Classic (optional)
  • Statistical information of alerts when used with Recount or Skada (optional)
  • GTFO-specific volume slider
  • Small memory footprint and very little CPU usage
  • Option to ignore alerts for trivial content
  • Option to auto-unmute sounds if you play without sound on

Weak Auras Integration
can be set up with Weak Auras to provide visual alerts in addition to (or in lieu of) the audible alerts.

  • Install the Weak Auras addon
  • Type “/wa” in game to bring up the Weak Auras menu
  • Click “Texture”, “Text”, or “Icon”
  • Click the “Trigger” tab
  • Change the “Type” to “Event”
  • Change the “Event” to “GTFO Alert”
  • Check “Alert Type” and select a GTFO alert type
  • Set a short number (like .1) in Duration
  • Use the other configuration options to fine-tune your alert

Power Auras Integration
GTFO can be set up with Power Auras to provide visual alerts in addition to (or in lieu of) the audible alerts.

  • Install the Power Auras Classic addon
  • Type “/powa” in game to bring up the Power Auras menu
  • Click “Page 1” to create a character-only alert or “Global 1” to create an account-wide alert
  • Click “new” to create a new alert
  • Change the dropdown value for “Activation By:” to “GTFO Alert”
  • Select your alert type: High/Low/Fail/Friendly Fire
  • Use the other configuration options to fine-tune your alert

Recount/Skada Integration
GTFO can be set up with Recount or Skada to provide detailed statistical information of alerts.

A word of caution: the damage amount displayed on GTFO Alerts may not be fully indicative of the total damage done, especially with fail alerts.
For example: if you’re hit by a tornado, the damage and fail alert from the tornado picking you up could be 5k, but the fall damage when you hit the ground afterwards is 100k. The amount recorded by Recount/Skada will be 5k.
