Aye, yer scurvy swab! Ye can yell a random pirate exhortation and/or enjoy pirate flavoured tooltips for pirate NPCs, spells, and items.
Yells be perfect for carousin' with yer scallywag pirate buddies, especially during Pirate's Day.
And Tooltips? Aye! There be plenty o' pirates throughout Azeroth 'n' plenty o' their booty to be sure. Most can be found south o' Booty Bay 'n' along the Southbreak Shore and Lost Rigger Cove in Tanaris. There be other places where pirates be found, such as Faldir's Cove.
So get out 'n' find 'em or are ye a lily-livered poop deck swab!
(Not incessantly mind you. The same item, spell, and NPC will not be flavoured again for 15 minutes)
How to Use
Instal: Like any other AddOn. Set up: Works 'as is'. For configuration enter '/yarrr' in chat.
/yarrr to see a menu of possible commands.
/yarrr 1 same as "r" above except that the exhortation occurs in General Chat.
/yarrr d n where "n" is a number >= 15 and is the delay in seconds before a tooltip will be regenerated for an NPC/item/spell/faction. Default is 900, i.e. 15 minutes. This avoids constant tooltip spamming which can get annoying. A delay is also required as a technical work around for a WoW UI limitation.
Ahoy Me Matey's!
Yarrr is rated ESRB "Teen", as is WoW overall. Mild suggestive themes. No swearing. Alcohol.
Some yells refer back to game lore and some hint at finding companions and hunter pets. Mostly, it is all about carousing and pillaging!
If You Like Yarrr

Cookies, Beer & Donations
It is all about the cookies and beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Donate because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend". 😊
