Ok i just installed this addon, looked all good on paper and was looking forward to setting up my procs/buffs to get a huge icon on the screen when they activated. Unfortunately this never happened.. I sat for an hour and tried to get it working, tried all the things the author wrote on his page on Curse.. Nothing works. I write the name of the action, add the spell id and choose a texture, doesn't work o.O Oh yeah and i as soon as i choose "Use textures for de/buff" it just turns into a question mark. I'd really like the Slam icon for my Bloodsurge proc and the Battle shout icon for when yeah you get it, pleae help me out, thanks.
The real problem i'm having is getting Bloodsurge to work, it's a proc which gives me an instant slam. Slam is the ability, Bloodsurge is the proc ability(from talents). So when i add an event called "Slam" and add it's id i get shield slam which is a protection ability( i know this because the texture shows shield slam instead of slam). So the addon obviously doesn't recognise bloodsurge since the texture is a question mark, but why doesn't it recognise slam?
Edit: Bloodsurge doesn't even show up as a buff when i type "/powa showbuffs" which means i can't add it's spell id
From your description of what you'd tried, I'd guess (never having used Power Auras) that you're having trouble because Bloodsurge isn't a buff, or even a spell. See the Wowhead page for the Bloodsurge talent:
That was what i had hoped for too as i discovered it a little sooner than you wrote this, unfortunately it didn't work. Seems that it is not all added in powerauras registry or whatever. If you wouldn't mind could you recommend me another similar addon, perhaps what you are using now if any?
I've been using an aura for bloodsurge procs for a year or more. Never had issue with it. As Phanx said you need to make a standard aura pick "Buff" as activation trigger and input Slam! (or the equivalent in your language client) as buff text.
