LOIHCal is in game raid event signup role management addon created for guild <Lords of Ironhearts> of Arathor EU, but can be used by anyone. Addon was designed to be easy and fast to use with every button and action being (almost) self-explanatory.

What it does?

  • Works for all Player or Guild Event type raid events you can make calendar event for.
  • Helps you visualize the raid setup by role view and by numbers at the bottom of the Frame.
    • Counter on the bottom of the Frame shows the total number of players with role, per role, combined number of DPS as well separated melee and ranged DPS and Standby.
    • Total counter is colored either RED or GREEN depending on your total Accepted/Signed up/Confirmed players and selected raid difficulty.
      • Mythic: Green when you have 20 players with role and RED when you have more or less than 20 players with role.
      • Other difficulties: Green when you have between 10 and 30 players with role and RED when you have more than 30 or less than 10 players with role.
  • Opens and closes automatically when you view or close Player or Guild Event type event and can be set to attach on top of the Default Calendar event view.
  • Can be set to automatically change players sign up status to Confirmed when you give them role or to Standby if you put them to the Standby group.
  • Mass Invite tries to invite everyone with a role to a raid and set it up with your event settings.
  • Skins nicely with ElvUI.
  • Everything is saved per event so you can manage different type and size events without messing the settings.
    • 20man Mythic main raid and 10man Normal or 30man Heroic alt raid? No problem!
    • Guild raid and non-guild raid with friends? No problem!

How to use it?

This describes the usage of the LOIHCals own view on raid events.

Old style

In the old style you pre-select the role for players and then start moving them into that rolelist until you change the role to different one.

  1. Open raid event in Calendar.
  2. Select the role you want to give to players by clicking the title of the rolelist.
  3. Now the title bar should change color and you can start moving players into that role by clicking their name on any list you see (You cannot move Declined, Tentative or invited players unless it is yourself, use the ContextMenu instead).
  4. Select new role by clicking other title or deselect your current selection by clicking the selected title.

Quick Mode

In Quick Mode you don't pre-select the role by clicking the titles of the rolelists, but you select them on the fly by using you keyboard on mouse.

  LeftButton RightButton
Shift Tanks Healers
None Melee Ranged
Ctrl Signups Standby
  1. Open raid event in Calendar.
  2. Select the role using Shift/None/Ctrl keys while clicking the names with LeftButton/RightButton according to table above.

Event settings

You can change the default settings for new events from the Config

  • Use dropdown menus to select raid difficulty, loot method and threshold.


  • You can open the EventInviteContextMenu by clicking with Alt+RightButton on name in any rolelist (works also for Declined, Tentative and invited players) for all that goodness you previously needed to go to the Default Blizzard view.
    • You need to be either creator or moderator in the event for the ContextMenu to pop out.
  • You can set your own signup status to Tentative/Declined with Alt+LeftButton on your own name on any rolelist (The click combination alternates between Tentative and Declined).
  • + next to player name indicates event creator and ^ indicates event moderator.
  • Mass Invite button will invite everyone Accepted/Signed up/Confirmed with role to the raid and set up the raid the way you wanted.
    • Players without a role (in Signups group) won't be invited even if they are Accepted/Signed up/Confirmed by Mass Invite. If you want them to your raid, give them role.
    • You need to be either creator or moderator in the event for the button to be enabled.
    • Players already in your raid group are marked with corner brackets for you to easily tell who is still missing from your raid group ([Playerinraid] vs Playernotinraid).


Under roles tab you can check and alter the Auto-Roles LOIHCal has recorded.

  • Scrollbar section lists all the players in the database and their most used role.
  • Clicking the name opens you option to change their default role and shows latest event where they have Signed up.
  • When player is selected buttons for different roles are enabled and by pressing them you can set players default role.
    • Changing players default role won't change their role in events where the player has been already given a role and this change can be over written automaticly by opening too many newer events (after the date and time of manual change) where the player has different role.
  • When player is selected you can also remove all role data related to that player from database.
    • Player will be added back to database if you open up any events where the player has been given any roles.

Slash commands

Use /loihcal or your own translated slashcommand to list available parameters like config to open LOIHCal config or reset to reset database and reload UI.


You can find config under Interface -> Addons -> LOIHCal

  • General settings
    • LOIHCals attach point, either on the side or on the top of the Default Blizzard view.
    • Default view to be opened when shown, either LOIHCal or Default Blizzard view (enabled only when attached on top)
    • Enable Quick Mode (See "How to use it?" for explanation on Quick Mode).
  • Automation settings
    • Auto-Roles, LOIHCal can keep track and set up previously used roles for players on raids if they are Accepted/Signed up/Confirmed.
    • Auto-Roles decay, automaticly remove any player who haven't Signed up for any of the raids in past 2 months to reduce the size of saved data (enabled only when Auto-Roles is enabled).
    • Auto-Confirm, confirms automaticly any player with role. Confirmed players can't change their sign up status later (they can remove the event), while Accepted/Signed up players can.
  • Default settings for new raid events
    • Set up default difficulty, loot method and threshold for newly created events. You can still change them by event basis without messing anything, but with this you can set up the settings to match your guilds default way of doing things and save time when creating new events.
  • Whispers Settings
    • LOIHCal can send whispers to players informing them why you are inviting them to raid on Mass Invite.
    • When editing the whisper remember:

      • Press Esc to cancel any unsaved changes.
      • If you want to go back to default, just press the "Reset to Default"-button.
      • Use %s as a placeholder for event title on the whisper.
      • Line can't be empty, disable Send Whispers instead if you don't want to bother others.
  • Skinning settings
    • LOIHCal can skin itself with ElvUI (ElvUI required)
    • Skinning will be applied as soon as you tick the box.
    • To remove skinning you have to press the Reload UI for the changes to take effect.
