Cooldown Announcer Addon

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:

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

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

      Title says it all.
      i saw a user on youtube using an addon a while back. the addon seemed to show the locations of rare enemies on the world map with a skull icon.
      has anybody heard of it? or any sort of addon that shows rare locations on the map?

      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

      Strangely Ironic is guild of friends and family that has been around the block a couple times. We are trying to recruit active players to form a raid team. Due to RL and the age of the game our ranks have dwindled. We are a casual guild looking to raid two nights a week from 9pm EST to 11pm EST; days of the week will change as I work shift work. If you want to join and don't want to raid we are still accepting all applicants as we want to foster an active community.
      No hot-heads please, as we are a guild who recognizes that this is just a game and we are all here to have fun and relax.
      If you are interested add reddfoxx#1496 or head to strangelyironic.enjin.com to fill out an application.

      Hi
      So, lately I have been looking around the web for someone to explain how I can insert an icon/bar that displays the "buff" Feral Spirit. I am mainly using the Tell Me When addon, but I had to go  through Weak Auras this time to get it right. I also want to mention that I would not have been able to get it right had I not imported the Weak Auras string from Wordup (author of the enhancement shaman guide). The reason for this being so complicated is because contrary to what you might think, Feral Spirit does not work as a buff. Therefore you will have to manually work around this problem to get it to work. I have added some pictures that will hopefully make the process easier.
      PS. I am in no way an expert on either Tell Me When or Weak Auras, so be gentle...
      1) Tell Me When:

      This is the general layout. If you dont want an icon, but a bar. You can go into the "group" tab (bottom right of tell me when) and select bar (on the very top)
       

      This is how the layout inside Tell Me When should look after completion. Feral Spirit is no longer a "buff", so you will have to make a Combat Event where you manually enter the amount of seconds the combat event (Feral Spirit) should be active, in this case 15 seconds
       

      This is important: Events to check --> Casts --> Spell Cast Success
      After all that you should be ready to go!
       
       
      2) Weak Auras:

       

      Feral Spirit is no longer a "buff", so you will have to make a Combat Log where you manually enter the amount of seconds the combat event (Feral Spirit) should be active, in this case 15 seconds
       

      Just scrolling down
       

      All the way at the bottom you have to enter the Spell Name and the amount of seconds that the Combat Event (Feral Spirit) should be active.
      Now you should be all ready to go!
