Warlock Timer addons

13 posts in this topic

Ok, been seeing a few vids on youtube.com and I'm noticing that some players are using a addon I believe that shows dot duration on the target frames where the debuffs show up. Anyone happen to know what its called?

There are a few DoT addons. You could use whatever unit frames you're using to show debuffs, or something like ForteXorcist. I personally use Forte right now and have it configured to show my DoTs on every target (ones that I'm not targeting are kind of faded out) and I've placed it above my target's frame, so I can see what time is left.

Without being more specific I can't be of more help :( Can you link one of the videos that you're looking at so somebody can point out the addon?

Affdots will incorporate itself into your unit frames. You might have to use pit bull unit frames, not sure. Anyway, you should be using affdots if your not...no lock is complete without it!

I use elvui that shows my dot times. Also use affdots. You can change affdots to a bar style and it will give the same duration style cast bar along with all the other awesome info it gives. Affdots gives you current strength of your dots if you where to refresh along with times left on current dots. It's an excellent tool for getting the most out of your procs.

Ah yes I forgot about AffDots (which is funny because I use it; where's my Shivarra to beat me?). I wasn't too big a fan of the bar style though, but I might go back to it. Not to derail the OP but if I'm using AffDots, then I should use those bars instead of ForteXorcist right? I mean, I like how Forte can show ALL targets, not just the current target (makes it a bit easier to see "oh hey I have to refresh the dots on X"), but it seems a bit redundant to use two tracking addons, right?

Any demo or destro lock says herro.

I use custom weakauras to track my dots because I'm cool and shiat.

I use Affdots as Demo and Destro. I find it easier to track Immolate's damage, even if it is a minor change. Continued habit, I guess. However, it's VERY beneficial for Demonology. It puts a "c" by the spell power coefficient for Doom to let you know you have a 100% Crit Doom on that target. This is invaluable for multi-target fights. It also lets you track Corruption. If you time it right, refreshing Doom and Corruption with Perfect Aim lets you use one global on Touch of Chaos to extend/buff Corruption. If you cancel Meta at that time and go back to your caster rotation, Corruption will tick at 100% Crit as well as whatever else it was empowered with. Affdots tracks this, as well.

Is there an addon that tracks whether or not a mob is being hit by rain of fire? ForteXorcist and Affdots both only track the rain of fire buff on you. I ask, because sometimes a boss does not have to be right on top of the rain of fire to get hit, see megaera; where you can rain of fire in between the head and still have them both get hit.

Not that I know of, but there probably is. Honestly for that specific case I'd just queue up for LFR and practice placement. Cast only RoF and see if numbers pop up over their heads.

Technically, according to the game, they are right on top of the RoF. The only reason they hit is because they're hit box is massive. But, yea..

As for tracking if RoF is actively ticking on something, I just have my elvui set to display the RoF debuff on my current target, so I know when it isn't there o.o.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Nomads is a social guild with a semi hardcore mythic raiding team at Quel'Thalas/Azjol-Nerub, our guild is one of the oldest on the server with 8 years under it’s belt.
      Our Progress: 7/7M EN, 2/3H ToV and +12-14 Mythics.
       
      We are a friendly social guild and We like to enjoy the game and see all of the content it has to offer.
       
      We do all of the mythics every week and also lots of m+ runs.
       
      Our raiding atmosphere is super chilled, we don't tolerate toxicity and bm of any kind.
      As a mythic raider you’re expected to be here for raids, doesn’t have to be all of them every week, but we need to know we can count on you when we need you.
       
      Our raid times are (server time): 
      Wednesday/Thursday/Sunday => 20:30 - 23:30 (mythic raids)
       
      We have bonus raids for farm content:
      Friday => 20:45 - 22:00 (EN heroic)
      Saturdays => 20:45 - 22:00 (EN normal)
      Mondays => 20:00 to 23:00-24:00 (ToV HC run)
       
      The team looks really strong and we’re want to fill out some missing spots in our Ranged DPS department,
      We’re mostly looking for Hunters/Mages and could also use a strong Warlock/ShadowPriest.
      For healers : any very good healer would do, pref Druid/Priest.
       
      Contact Us:
      Shamdi (Assistant Mythic team leader) => Mistere#2792

      We are currently 7/7M EN...3/3H ToV and our raid schedule is: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 8-11 Server (CST). 
      website:  http://symbiosisofsargeras.shivtr.com/
      We are a stable guild who has been around for over 8 years now. New members have come and gone but raiding has always been the constant here. With veteran leadership and a strong core we continue to push forward in search of progressing as fast as we can each tier while still having fun and raiding a light schedule. That being said, we don't slouch either and we typically finish all the content while its relevant with significant progress into hard modes. Our median raid member age is somewhere around 25 and we tend to look for mature players. We like to have fun but we also know when its time to get down to business. As we only raid 9 hours a week we like to squeak out as many pulls as possible and be as efficient as we can with our time. We ask that our members show up early, fully repaired and with consumables ready to go. If you are looking for a stable guild who is continuously pushing for new progression kills then we might be the place for you.
