    Angry DBM - How to remove "ICON - Boss Name begins to cast [Spell]" from chat?

    Title!

    I've searched high and low... I've played around with DBM and WoW's chat settings and I just can't find it. I know how to remove DBM /s from chat, but for the life of me I can't find how to remove these.

    Thanks!

    If I'm getting what you are saying, it is a default thing that DBM has nothing to do with. Try to do that same boss without DBM and see if it appears or not.
    People hated MoP but now many say it is the "Best" expansion. Given enough time, WoD will be the "Best" as well, I dare say.

    You're right! I still got it after I disabled DBM. So it's chat thing, which option is it?

    That's default Blizzard UI. I'm not aware that you can turn it off.

    Yup, that's default UI. You can't turn it off, though it may be possible for an addon to suppress / hide these. I'm not aware of any addon that does that though.

    I'm going to mess around with chat settings again.

    If anyone else has any insight, please let me know!

    BigWigs can block that.
    DBM might have an option for that aswell.

    Well, I've learned it has nothing to do with DBM or BW. It's a WoW chat thing. I'm just unsure of which option.

    ...Which BigWigs is capable of blocking. There's no way of doing that natively afaik.

    Might have a peek if I can figure it out, how it does that.
    Can see other potential uses depending on how it works.

    It could be something like this (drycoded/untested) but not sure, I don't currently have an active account to test with

    Note that this will block all NPC/boss chat messages since I don't know which events are the one with the warning messages and icons
    Code:
    -- block chat messages
    local events = {
    	"CHAT_MSG_MONSTER_SAY",
    	"CHAT_MSG_MONSTER_YELL",
    	"CHAT_MSG_MONSTER_WHISPER",
    	"CHAT_MSG_RAID_BOSS_EMOTE",
    	"CHAT_MSG_RAID_BOSS_WHISPER",
    }
    
    local function filter(self, event)
    	return true
    end
    
    for _, v in pairs(events) do
    	ChatFrame_AddMessageEventFilter(v, filter)
    end
    
    -- hide warning frame
    RaidBossEmoteFrame:Hide()
    RaidBossEmoteFrame.Show = function() end
    RaidBossEmoteFrame:UnregisterAllEvents()

    The emotes are triggered by the following 2 events:

    CHAT_MSG_RAID_BOSS_EMOTE
    CHAT_MSG_RAID_BOSS_WHISPER

    There is no need to create a filter when you want to remove them entirely.
    All you need to do is unregister both events from ChatFrame1.

    Thanks funkydude! I ran into another chat message: "You have [Spell]" - what would this be?
