Dire Beast WA

6 posts in this topic

I want to make a Weak Aura for the number of Dire Beasts I currently have active.  While this isn't going to have a large impact on playstyle, it could be useful information to have (eg. Way of the Cobra, eventually Titans Thunder).

With the new iteration, the buff isn't in stacks, but multiple copies of the same buff.  I'm not skilled enough in Weak Auras to write the custom trigger myself, but I think I would need to somehow track the difference in stacks gained and lost, and display the difference.  Or perhaps make a series where when the difference is 1 then display "1", and a second for when the difference is 2 then display "2", and so on.

Can anybody lend a hand?

I'm not well versed in WAs to be able to properly help, but I'd advise checking out this link:

https://wago.io/

It has a huge list of WAs for every class, so hopefully someone has made one there. Sorry for the late reply, anyhow!

The extremely easy solution is to create a TellMeWhen group, make the leftmost icon track Dire Beast buff and turn it into the Group Controller. If you get multiple Dire Beast buffs, the group will display several icons, one for each Dire Beast, showing the duration. 

If you want just one icon to display the amount of Dire Beasts in numerical form - I made this group, just import it into TellMeWhen:

It's possible it won't work for you due to my Russian locale, in that case just rename the spell in the two icons into Dire Beast.

Neat!  I haven't used TellMeWhen, but from what I understand the coding is similar.  Perhaps I can use that to reverse-engineer something for WA.  If not, I might just keep TMW around for that purpose.

I'll try that out when I get home.  Thanks!!

You're welcome. TellMeWhen is a bit simpler than WA, mostly point and click interface, but it's still complex and has a robust kit.

Let me know if you have any trouble with importing the group:

To import a group into TellMeWhen, you have to paste its code into a tiny black text field in the bottom right of the TMW configuration window. 

Next to the text field there is an "Import / Export / Restore" button. Press it after you paste the code and follow the menus.

It should look something like this: Import -> From String -> Group X -> Copy whole group -> Create new profile group.

There could be a popup window warning you about importing LUA code. Accept it. 

 

It's possible to customize the icon more, or even turn it into a bar.

      Ey i want to create a new hunter character, and my doubt its, orc or maghar? I know this is not very importante because if u dont do high end is not terrible noticeable. In one hand we have the orc passive ( 5% more pet damage + ap) and in the other hand we have ( more health and ap ) .
      I think orc its better ¿ what do u think ?
      Sorry for my english im starting to learn english and i thought it was a good idea post here :D

      So I looked around the forums and couldn't find an answer for this, figured I'd post here and if I missed the answer somewhere else, someone is bound to tell me where it is, either way. During Bestial Wrath should I be keeping up Dire frenzy as normal or should I be focusing solely on Cobra Resets and Kill Command? Also, same question for Titans Thunder.

      evening ladies and gents.
      i've got a question about the blizzard store's race change.
      at the minute i have a pandaren horde hunter. but i'm giving some thought to doing a race change to an orc.
      i just want to check before i do anything. that if i do my race change. will i still keep all the pets i had before the change?
