WoW Warlock AffDot addon Question

6 posts in this topic

Hello all.  I was just reading up on what addons Icy Veins suggested and noticed AffDot was one of them for Affliction Warlock use.  However, when I took a look at the this addon at Curse, it shows it is really old and has not been updated for Legion, according the information at Curse.

Does anyone know if there is a replacement for this addon since it seems not to have been updated for some time?

Thanks in advance for any info.

There are many Dot trackers out there. Some of the most popular ones are Ellipsis, Raven and Gnosis. I personally have only used the latter but that was years ago.

If you are serious about making a good UI and putting some time into it I personally I would suggest using Weak Auras and possibly also a boss frame mod to help with targeting/mouseover dotting (I use ElvUI but there are lots of different ones). Also nameplate addons can help with dotting as well depending on how you find it easier to manage.

I suggest WAs as it can pretty much track everything (DoTs, buffs, CDs) and it is very customisable. You can import a full profile as well so you are ready to go so the initial setup is not too bad. Then though you decide to make changes or get more technical and sooner or later you realise you have spent dozens of hours with it! However, if this does not sound like you check out the different DoT trackers around.

I use Raven for my buffs/debuffs and in theory could set it up to be used for my dots, but I use WeakAuras for my dots instead.

I used affdots until snap-shotting went away. Now I just use WA as it can be set up to track just about anything you can think of without needed to know LUA code

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 5/8H
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING (340+ ilvl)
      Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Healer & DPS for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
