Cooldown Announcer Addon

7 posts in this topic

Hello!

 

I couldn't find a specific "Tanking" sector on the forums so I thought this'd be the place for this one as it's not class restricted per say.

 

I'm looking for an addon that would announce to the raid when defensive cooldown X is active and when it fades. Mainly to let the healers know i'll need less attention for a few secs. I've seen some tanks sporting this kinda stuff in the past, but haven't thought to ask them what are they using for that.

 

I'd also like it to take external ones into account. (Pain Suppression, Guardian Spirit etc) 

 

So the core of this post would be if anyone knows an addon that does that and what it's called.

Or if ElvUI has something that can achieve this result.

 

Thank you.

This one does what you want i believe

 

http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/rsa

 

 is an addon that aims to help players with the announcement of certain spells, as well as reminding you of important missing buffs. For example, it can detect when you cast Divine Protection, and it will send a message like so:
rsa_img1.jpg
As you can see, it can announce when it first is cast, and then again when it ends, not only that, but you can customise the messages that are sent.

I use tellmewhen, it is usefull for almost anything, you can display which spells are on/off cooldown, how long they will remain off cooldown, you can track buffs and debuffs aswell including stacks ofc.

it does require some getting used to but I might be able to help out if ya like

You can also try this one:

This is a very useful addon and you can set whatever spell you want to announce, and how to announce.

      Spike Flail on Mal'ganis is a long tenured end-game raiding community, looking for a few more great players to add our to core for Legion progression.

      As a guild we've been around since TBC on with the same GM, Raid Leader, and core group. Our exploits include competitive Sunwell progression in TBC, top 50 ranked US progression in WoLK 25m, top 25 of US 10m progress progression in Cata, and top 125 US progression in WoD after taking a break in MoP.
      We've done the 4 night/4 hour thing in the past, but as our group of players has grown and aged, we've decided to keep the same hardcore progression mentality on a more time friendly schedule for. As such we raid 3 nights a week with raiding times as follows:
      Sunday from 7-11 PM EST
      Wednesday from 8 PM EST- 11 PM EST
      Thursday from 8 PM EST - 11 PM EST
      (We generally take off Thursday and/or Sunday on farm the content when the instance has been cleared)
      Our current progression is 7/7 Mythic Emerald Nightmare, 1/3 Mythic Trials of Valor at US#177, and are looking for great players to add to our raiding core.
      http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/mal-ganis/Spike+Flail
      About Spike Flail:
      The core of our guild have been playing MMOs together for over 10 years now. We have the same leadership and raiding core as we did all the way back in TBC/WoLK/Cata, and our same GM/Raid Leader has been leading this group of individuals since TBC.
      We take raiding extremely seriously, but we also know this is a game and meant to be enjoyed. Our leadership has been raid leading in MMOs for over 10 years now, and know that positive reinforcement and a constructive environment is more effective than an authoritarian style that relies on yelling and screaming. While it sounds cliche and overused, we're honestly proud to say that we're not the type of guild that lacks any patience and has to run raids in a completely the authoritarian manner and forget why we're playing. Our main goal is to maintain a professional environment in which we can play this game and progress as a cohesive team against the hardest challenges gaming has to offer.
      What we're looking for:
      As 3 day, 10hour per week guild, we need to make every hour we play count. As such we're looking for players who's attitudes and personality fit in with our current group of players. We're looking for people with the same mindset - who understand and value approaching a new challenge by preparing and utilizing all resources they have at their disposal in order to not waste their own time as well as their colleagues'.
      We do not recruit for the bench, as such all of our Trials are given equal opportunity as our core raiders, and we can promise that you will see progression as a trial.
      Some things we look for in our prospective applicants:
      Past Progression experience. We're looking for apps who have been a part of top progression pushes in past content, or are at least Mythic experienced in the current content. Ideally we're looking for people who have knowledge of what it takes to succeed in a progression guild over a prolonged period of time.
      Ability to make 90% of our raids.
      Dedicated raiding mindset. This includes using consumables on every fight, researching your classes' theorycrafting to min-max to the fullest, being on time and ready for every night, etc.
      MOST IMPORTANTLY: We're looking for intelligent human beings, and you should be able to convey your intelligence in how you present yourself. This includes knowing game mechanics, having quick reaction time, and being able to learn from your mistakes. You should be able to explain your classes weakness and strengths, know the theorycraft to min/max your class, and what abilities to use when. You must be able to learn quickly from your mistakes and adapt to new situations, as well as have a strong sense of situational awareness and the ability to multi-task effectively. You also must be able to express yourself in a way that shows you're an intelligent human being.
      You can find a much longer post regarding all our expectations and requirements for our applicants at here. I STRONGLY encourage any potential applicant to read over that thread thoroughly before making a decision regarding their application.
      Prospective Trials must be completely knowledgeable of their class's theorycraft and mechanics, dedicated and dependable raiders, and overall knowledgeable and skilled players. Our specific class needs are as follows:
      High Priority:
      Warlock
      Shadow Priest 
      Death Knight (DPS)
      Mage
      Guardian Druid
      Protection Warrior
      Protection Paladin
      Brewmaster Monk
      Blood Death Knight
      Mid Priority:
      Druid (Balance)
      Hunter
      A Note: We are not recruiting this many players. We simply have a lot of options available to what classes we can take. Some members have alts/offspecs they can choose to if we find a certain class. We also just have a general need for good players, so we're open to most classes at the moment. That's why we have so many on our list.
      How to contact us:
      If you're interested in applying, you can visit our forums at www.spikeflail.com and put an application in on the appropriate forum. Please be sure to read all the stickies before applying; if you can't be bothered to read the stickies and follow application directions you probably will not be considered for a Trial. You also can chat with myself (Pallinn - Palin#1620 Btag) or any other Spike Flail officer (Marko#1989 and/or Nikolai#1962)
      Please be sure to read over all the information we've presented on our forum before making a decision to apply. If you think you meet our requirements and agree with our philosophy towards raiding, feel free to pursue it. However please don't belittle yourself by simply glancing over our information and tossing an application with no effort behind it. The application process is partly an attempt to weed our those who can't read stickies or form a proper sentence, so please remember that an application is your first impression, so try to make it as well crafted as possible.
      Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon!

      The guide was updated on 30/09/2016 for the 10.21 ElvUI version.
      Profile to import is here.
       
      ElvUI is a full UI replacement. It completely replaces the default Blizzard UI at every level with a new and better interface. It has multiple addons and plug-ins integrated into it, such as Dominos action bars and TidyPlates. As such, you’ll only ever have to update ElvUI and not worry too much about its individual components. This UI will arrange your interface to be more flexible and practical.
       
      DOWNLOADING AND INSTALLATION
      Download ElvUI from Tukui. The version on Curse is outdated.
      Following the above link, you will find two addons to download: Tukui and ElvUI. You need ElvUI:
       

       
      Unpack the downloaded archive to your WoW Addons folder (World of Warcraft -> Interface -> Addons)
       

       
      If you had ElvUI previously installed, you'd get a message asking to replace the current folder - click 'Yes':
       

       
      Log in to WoW. Click the 'AddOns' button in the left bottom corner of your character selection screen. Make sure that both ElvUI Config and ElvUI are enabled in the addons list:
       

       
      Press 'Enter World'. ElvUI config can be reached from the Main Menu (in game press Esc button-> press ElvUI button) or by typing /ec in chat.
      When entering the game for the first time after installing the addon, you'll get this screen :

       
      If you can't see this Installation screen, type /ec in chat and then press 'Install' button in the config window:

      You’ll now have a 8 step configuration process. Do not skip it if you don’t have ElvUI already configured on some other toon.
       
      [1] Click on ‘Continue’ to begin:
      [2] Step 2 of 8: CVars: Click on ‘Setup CVars’ → ‘Continue’
      [3] Step 3 of 8: Chat: Click on ‘Setup Chat’ → ‘Continue’
      [4] Step 4 of 8: Theme Setup: you can try all 3 buttons (Classic/Dark/Class) to see the difference and click ‘Continue’ after you decided.
      [5] Step 5 of 8: Resolution: choose ‘High Resolution’ if you have a 15 inch + monitor, otherwise choose ‘Low Resolution’ → ‘Continue’
      [6] Step 6 of 8: Layout: Choose the option you are interested in - a player / target / target of target Unit Frames will be at the bottom of the screen, not on the top and in a slightly different position for every role (You can click on every role to see the difference and to choose what you like better). If you chose a Healer role, you will get an announcement asking you to install the Clique addon, just click ‘Yes’ and ignore it, no need to install anything.

       
      Click ‘Continue’ when you’re done.
      [8] Step 7 of 8: Auras: I would advice for ‘Icons Only’ - we don’t need a million bars and timers for standard raid buffs. We all know that they are present. But you can select the ‘Aura Bars&Icons’ option too if it’s you taste. Click ‘Continue’ when you’re done.
      [10] Step 8 of 8: Installation Complete: You’re done with the basic installation, hit the ‘Finished’ button and it will reload your UI.
      After restarting, you’ll get a screen with a support announcement and tips. Check “Disable”, then press “Hide” if you don’t want these tooltips to come up. I suggest not to hide them until you’re completely familiar with ElvUI.
      Now we’re going to configure your UI a bit more.
      Typing /ec in chat will open the Config window.
       
      GENERAL:

      There are some very nice options here that make your life easier:
       
      - ‘Announce Interrupts’ dropdown menu. Set this to ‘None’ if you are using some other addon for it or set to any of the other options: Party/Raid/Say, etc.
      - Select an ‘Auto Repair’ option from the drop down menu.
      - Tick ‘Vendor Grays’ - awesome option!
      - Tick “Auto Greed/DE’ to automate rolling on greens. It’ll automatically choose Disenchant or Greed (depending on whether an enchanter is available or not). This option works only on max level so don’t be afraid to DE something useful.
      - You can disable the Order Hall Command Bar from here too. 
      - In the Objective Frame tab you can change its length.
       
      Go through the rest of options and check whatever you feel useful.
       
      MAPS:
      Before Legion it was a dropdown menu that was changed recently to a stand alone config window:

      While a 'World Map' tab is pretty obvious, you should configure properly the Minimap section:
      - Pay close attention to the Minimap Buttons menu (Garrison / Calendar / Mail / LFR Queue, etc) - you can resize, move, hide / hide in combat all the buttons.
      You should pay attention to the ‘Hide’ button. For some reason it is ticked by default so you’ll have to untick it for every button you want to see on your Minimap.
       
      DATABARS:
      Same as Maps, it was a dropdown menu in General tab and was changed recently to a stand alone config window:

      If you are still leveling or grinding Faction Reputations, you can configure here
      - XP Bar & Reputation 
      You can choose here all the standard options - move, resize, vertical / horizontal, show on mouseover.
      Tick 'Hide at Max level' for the XP bar - it's a nice option.
      Artifact Bar:
      A very useful in Legion - it shows gained/needed for the next trait AP for your currently equipped Artifact and open the Traits window on mouse click.
       
      Go through the rest of options and check whatever you feel useful.
       
      ACTION BARS

       
      - Tick ‘Enabled’
      - Tick ‘Keybind Text’. Displays bind names on the action buttons.
      - Tick ‘Macro Text’. Displays macro name on the action button so you'll be aware that pressing this button you'll run a macro and not a single ability.
      - Change ‘Font’ and ‘Font Size’ to whatever works for you.
       
      ‘Pick Up Action Key’ is the button that you must hold down in order to drag an ability to another action button - prevents from accidental messing with the buttons.
       
      Now check “Enabled” for Micro Bar (this is the one with Quests, LFR, Char Info, Spellbook, etc icons), any of the Bars 1-6, Pet Bar and Stance Bar. Actually, you can enable only Bar 1 and 2 or whatever works for you and disable all the rest.
      For every bar, there is a ‘Mouse over’ tick box - this will simply hide the bar until you mouseover it, which is useful for bars that are irrelevant during raids.
      In enabled Bars, you can choose the number of buttons per bar and vertical or horizontal style.
      - The ‘Buttons’ slider will allow you to set how many buttons a bar will have (the button cap is 12 though, you cannot have more than that in a single bar).
      - ‘Buttons Per Row’ - choose 12 if you want a horizontal bar, choose 1, if you want it vertical bar.

       
      Actually you don’t have to have exactly 12 buttons per bar. It can be any amount from 1 to 12 or even 2 rows of 6 buttons or any other configuration that you prefer.
      If you want to hide an Action Bar in a specific situation, for example during a raid, you have to type
      [vehicleui] hide; [overridebar] hide; [petbattle] hide; [nocombat] hide; show;
      in the 'Visibility State' window.
       
      Moving elements
      Now we will sort the bars on the screen. Click ‘Toggle Anchors:’

       
      You will then get this screen:

      Just mouse drag your bars to the proper position.
      If you feel that your bars are stick to something all the time, just untick ‘Sticky Frames’ option in the central Menu.
      In addition, you get a 'Nudge' menu with arrows and numbers on every bar you are clicking - you can use it for fine tuning (if you are interested in extremely precise positioning ^^)
      When you’re done, click on ‘Lock’ in the central Menu.
       
      Key Bindings
      To configure Hot Keys on your Action Bars, click on ‘Keybind Mode.’

      You will get this window pop-up:

      Tick Character specific Key Bindings only if you want different positioning of hotkeys on the bars for different characters. You’ll get an explanation of what to do on the screen. Do not forget to click ‘Save’ when you’re done.
       
      BAGS:
      Click ‘Enable,’ if you want to use ElvUI’s bag system. It’s nice, tidy and flexible in size and positioning. If you have an external bag addon, you will have to disable ElvUI’s bag system or you’ll get both of them messed up.
      I personally preferred to disable ElvUI bag system and use AdiBags addon. It’s the same graphic style but has very good smart section division by default including different gear sets - no need to configure anything. In addition you can have all the Currencies you want to track at the bottom line.
      Looks like this:

       
      BUFFS AND DEBUFFS
      Both ‘Enable’ and ‘Disabled Blizzard’ must be checked.
       
      CHAT:
      You can play here with the options or leave it untouched, move and resize chat  windows, remove / split existing or add new, add timestamps, enable chat history, etc.
      Let’s try to add a new chat window, so you’ll know how to do this.

       
      [1] Right click on the ‘General’ tab of your Chat window and select ‘Create New Window’ from the menu.
      [2] Name this window ‘Raid.’
      [3] Right-click on the newly created ‘Raid’ chat window and select ‘Settings.’
      [4] From the ‘Chat’ category, untick everything except ‘Party, Party Leader, Raid, Raid Leader, Raid Warning, Instance, Instance Leader.’
      [5] From the ‘Global Channels’ category, untick everything.
      [6] Click ‘Okay.’
      Remember that you can move chat windows - you will have to untick ‘Lock Positions’ option to do this.

       
      DATATEXTS:
      Datatexts are all the additional data that could be displayed at the bottom of chat windows, Action Bars and Minimap. 
      You can also interact with the datatexts. For example, clicking on Time will bring up Calendar, on Durability - your Character Info, on Spec - will change it to the secondary, mouseover on System - shows your addon list with the memory used, etc.
      There is a nice tab 'Currencies' where you may configure which currencies and in what format you want to see in Datatexts.

      Frankly, there are a million possibilities to try :)
       
      NAMEPLATES 
      If you are using external addon for the Nameplates, you’ll have to untick “Enable” here.
      Check “Enable” in tabs you want Nameplates on (I personally check only Enemy NPC but it's completely your choice):

      There are a lot of options to track and to choose from but they are all very user friendly so I wouldn't explain them one by one.
      Pay Attention that the Elite Icon was finally added to ElvUI so you don't need to write custom texts to track Rare and Elite mobs anymore.
       
      SKINS / TOOLTIPS / FILTERS
      Doesn’t matter. Do whatever you want here.
       
      UNITFRAMES:
      Enable only the UNIT FRAMES tabs that are relevant for you. All the rest - keep them disabled.
      You should disable all the Blizzard frames - keeping both Blizz and ElvUI frames creates unnecessary mess on your screen.
      For example as a raid healer I disable all the party/raid frames because I’m using VuhDo for it.
      You can use Clique and mouseover macros with ElvUI Unit Frames.
      ElvUI Raid Frames are very flexible: you can move and resize them, choose vertical or horizontal positioning. Any target data, buffs and debuffs could be configured separately for every kind of group. You can add and remove targets of your target, focus or pet, their cast bars, name, HP, level, raid icons, etc.
      If you are interested in tracking incoming heals or  threat, there are options for this too.

       
      PROFILES:
      The most awesome thing about ElvUI is that after you did it once, no need to configure the addon for every character. Just choose the toon or a named profile that you want to copy the settings from. If you have a viable offspec, you can also ‘Enable Dual Profile’ to configure it.
      Or you can just save different profiles for 10-man / 25-man raid or for tank / dps spec.
      Another nice option is to share your profile with other player (obviously they should have ElvUI too) when targeting them.

       
      I'm sharing my profile here for those who prefer not to start from scratch.
      Use 'Import Profile' button to import :)
