Dot Addon

Hi all,

First time posting. I played a Hunter until T10 and decided to take a break to finish up school and get settled. I'm back now and rolled a lock. I've been really enjoying it, but I've been having a little bit of difficulty managing my dots on multi-target encounters.

I was wondering if anyone here uses or knows of a good multi-target dot timer addon that will allow me to see which targets have which debuffs/dots and a timer to see when they expire or something along those lines.

I was using Ellipsis Multi-dot timer for a little bit, but it hasn't been updated in a while and it wouldn't show the targets if I did a Fire and Brimstone Immolate on a big group.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

i use ElvUI in combination with Aff dots.. that'll show your dots over the health bars of the enemies and if you've them targeted your current targets dots on affdots addon..

ElvUI has an inbuilt DoT timer, but it doesn't show multiple Targets.

NugRunning shows multiple targets but doesnt have an in-game config (except for /slash commands)

Raven has a DoT timer, and shows multiple targets I think.

WeakAuras have an option to show DoT Timers, but it doesnt show multiple targets, and you'd have to setup every spell yourself.

Personally I've never tried AffDots so can't say anything about it.

Classtimer, dont know if it shows multiple targets.

ButtonTimers, again don't know about multiple targets.

Timers, which hasn't been updated since 5.2

NeedToKnow, no multiple targets.

Personally I think your best bet would be Raven, Nugrunning or maybe affdots.

I just linked my UI in another thread. Check that to see if you like the way each dummy tracks Corruption (one has Shadowflame on it to show multiple DoTs). Personally, it's all I'll ever need.

Most nameplate addons can track DoTs (i know Elvs and TidyPlates do)

For multi-dotting purposes I use ForteXorcist

Same here. At the beginning, ForteXorcist didn't feel to good to me because it kind of overwhelms you with information. But I played around with it a little bit and now I love it. I basically have DoTs grouped by target with the target name on the bottom, and I also increased slightly the size of the bars to make very visible what is going on. Works like a charm, although no matter what, it requires some practice and concentration do keep your DoTs working in fights with more than 2 targets :)

It is awesome when you do it right, though, so keep on trying!

can we get a screen shot of this in action with multiple targets. I'm curious to see how much room this takes up.

      Hey everyone - I'm coming back to WOW after a 3 year break and I'm leveling a mage (fire lvl 33) - something I wanted to do before leaving.  I have read the articles on the addon but is that it?  I'm curious  what addons do you use for leveling, mobs, dungeons, etc...
      thanks

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      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.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684
