I've been using [TalentSpec ? TalentTree:Hide(None):ClassColor] for quite some time now with zero issues, but the last couple of days Cowtip won't show the talent tree for half the people I mouseover/target. I noticed it after logging in and joining AV. I updated Cowtip and checked the forum, but couldn't find anything regarding this.
Testing this in a BG, it will only show for about half the people. I've joined multiple games with players from different servers, races, classes and it seems to be random on who it will show up for and who it won't. For those that it doesn't appear for and are friendly, I can manually inspect their talents and then the tooltip will show their talent tree as it would normally. Anyone have any ideas?
well see the proccess in getting your target's tallent tree is not a simple function call that is instant. IT's a request and event response. That and recentl there was a throttle introduced to dogtag's inspect queiry methods.. so it'll be a bit slower.
Do what i do, just hover over the target for a few seconds and it'll eventualy appear.
I guess I left that part out. Before this started occurring, the first time hovering over a player would take a second or so to display their talent tree, but now it doesn't appear no matter how long I wait unless I inspect their talents and mouse over them afterwards.
Also, it seems to be limited to players from other servers. It works for 100% of players on my server, 50% of players from other servers.
Just checked - getting nothing on Horde and only about 1/2 the time on toons from other servers. No errors...
Ok... out of BG...
I'm not using Cowtip, but have am using [TalentSpec] [TalentTree] on my mouseOver in Pitbull. Noticed what I thought was odd, and added the same text to my Target frame. The results are about what I said.
At first I thought mebbe they plugged the Horder talent inspection during maintenance.
i can confirm this bug. things seem to work fine outside of a battleground (haven't tested in arenas). inside a battleground the spec querying seems to almost never work. im running proximo and haven't tested with proximo disabled
The most likely cause of this issue is that you're running an addon like Proximo or another PvP helper (since this only seems to happen in BGs) that is trying to inspect players' talents, interfering with DogTag's queries. Two addons can't both make talent requests at the same time; you may need to disable the other addon or its talent inspection feature to solve the problem.
I suggest you guys compare addons to see if you can find a common factor, or just try disabling things until you find the one causing the issue.
Heh - I just came by to say about the same thing. I also got weird behavior in that it seemed to cache weird. I targetted my self to make sure it was working after a bit and got the wrong spec. I died and rezzed and it was right again.
Also having this issue. Was hoping that it would've been spotted and fixed in the last 24 hours, as the poster above me stated, something was changed recently and screwed it. One thing I realized is it doesn't correctly request talent information cross-server. It's as if the addon is not correctly sending a request to "Name-Server". It works perfectly fine just running around Shattrath, or in a Battleground with someone on your server. I'm also going to revert to an older version for the time being.
