Addon to periodically trigger an ability

Hi,
I just want to know if it is (in general) possible for an addon to trigger an ability itself, without user-interaction.
I don't need any code, I just want to know if it is worth investing the time learning everything to get done what I have in mind.


Thank You.

Nope, it isn't ands that's good! Else we would have even more "bots" running around.

Addons cannot:
-Trigger abilities
-Move the player
-Automatically start an interaction
-Send chat messages
-Send mails "with attachments"
-Play custom sounds

Edit:
very true!

Yeah, the more often we write it the more possibilities ZOs got to read and change it

They did write they'd put it on the backlog a few years ago, but it is blocked by sound programmers not having enough time.

Seriously I need my WoW Deadly Boss Mods Airhorns and Meteor launching sounds when I'm about to get hit by one shot mechanics.
