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!

I could probably make something similar with TellMeWhen, but I don't know WA.

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.

      Sindorei Council, a family-friendly and socially active guild has been active since 7/24/2007 (BC drop), currently 7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, and 5/10 NH.  Seeking DPS (notably ranged) for completion of Heroic and preparation to move on Nighthold.  
      We are not a hardcore progression guild - have never been and don't seek to create that atmosphere.  We are an incredibly welcoming social guild with a core raid component of very skilled players who have enough real-life going on that one night/week (occasionally 2) is what we push for.   We've reached our current raid progression on essentially one night/week. 
      Are you a good fit?  If you enjoy playing your class very well, are reliable to be on at the given time(s), yearn for a fun PG atmosphere in Gchat and Discord with mostly adults, and feel like one (occasionally 2) night per week is ideal for the time you want to put into raiding then we may be a good fit for you.  We help others get better and push people to have fun in guild, raiding or not ( be it through Questing, M+, WQ's, Roics, Pet Battles, etc.). We know our members' backstories and strive to make our guild a family.  Very active FB page and Discord.  
      Schedule:   Current main core raid night is Thursday from 7:30 EST - 10:30 EST (Bloodhoof Server time).  Sunday nights are an alternative night for us.
      Progress:  7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, 5/10 NH
      Loot:  All Personal - hand down to people who need 
      NEEDS: 
      - Ele Shaman
      - Mage (Fire or Frost)
      - SPriest
      - Boomkin
      - Hunter
      - Arms Warrior w/ Prot offspec (another skilled dps that is comfortable off spec as Tank works well also (Feral/Guardian, WW/BM, etc.)
      Interested?:
      BTAG: Lorienawk#1319 or Mango#1525.  
      Thanks and Happy Hunting!

      Hello hunters,
      i nees some help with the marksmanship rotation. I'm trying to follow the guide of azortharion
       
      In no-proc periods:  Arcane Shot until 95 Focus, then  Aimed Shot to not Focus cap and repeat. If  Windburst becomes available during one of these periods, use it immediately and generate focus with Arcane Shot afterwards. Then, towards the end of the  Vulnerable window, cast the 2 Aimed Shots with roughly 4 seconds remaining on  Vulnerable. When you get a proc: →  Marked Shot → Keep Cast  Arcane Shot once (twice with extremely high Haste) so that there is only ~4 seconds remaining on Vulnerable → 2x  Aimed Shots.  
      But i really have some diffcult. Usually i'm doing this:
      - If vulnerable is down: cast windurst if is up or marked shot -> 1x arcane shot -> 2x aimed shot
      But really, i never have enough focus to do this and a lot of time i can cast only 1 aimed shot.
       
      I dont understand.

      Union is an Alliance guild on Uldum (PVE server) - I will keep this short. We are looking to add two ranged dps to our core mythic team. We would prefer a hunter/shadow priest/boomkin. We are currently 9/10 Heroic in Nighthold after 2 nights of heroic raiding. We were 7/7M in EN and 2/3M in ToV. We raid:

      Tuesday - 8-11 EST
      Thursday - 8-11 EST
      Sunday 7-11 EST

      We recruit players that have a good attitude, have high dps and are good with mechanics and movement. 

      If interested, add me on btag: Stormcaster#1629

      I have a lvl 104 MM hunter currently, with 7.1.5 I have heard BM is more viable. Should I A) switch my spec now for leveling B) keep MM for leveling but dump AP into BM artifact. 
      If "A" what should my basic build look like?
       
      THanks for the help!
