I know that there is a Shaman Alert addon that pop a specific sound when an abilty becomes available so I was thinking recently that having a such addon for tanking warriors for when Sheild Slam is up would be really nice.
With the new Sword and Board talent, Shield Slam can becomes available and reset at any time so this would greatly help IMO to know when SS is up without having to check it's cooldown. I know that there is already a particular sound withing the game but there are so many similar sounds anyway that it is VERY easy to miss it.
Does it trigger an audio sound or only another warning on your screen? When you tank, you have so much stuff to watch that having an audio warning would be awesome, kinda like ''ShamanAlert'', wich trigger an audio sound for every specific abilities that become available.
With Revenge and Shield Slam being up completely randomly now (with patch 3.0), we will definitly need something.
I tried MSBT but I don't think it will work. I mean, I didn't find a way for the addon to know when Shield Slam becomes available since it is completely random and there seems to have no way for it to work by simply knowing when the ability becomes available.
It's not really working by adding conditions and exceptions =/
I can't speak for MSBT.
(although I'm sure the author would be quite willing to put a sword and board trigger in by default)
He's asked the community to suggest default triggers to him over at wowinterface the WotLK version.
The same is true for SCT, it's trivial to make an alert for Shield Slam.
I can tell you how you'd do it in Power Auras Classic that I'm maintaining.
1. /powa to get to the aura editor.
2. Click new.
3. Select your animation options at the top half of the aura editor
It can be a custom graphic, a spell texture
choose "custom texture" and put 23922 or "Shield Slam" if you want the shield slam icon to popup.
Or select a text aura and type the text you want to appear.
4. At the bottom half of the editor, choose "Buff" from the dropdown
and put "Sword and Board" as buff to check (without quotes).
Leave the other checkboxes at their default values.
You can also select an optional sound to play
(one of the preset or and mp3 or wav of your choice, that you'll copy to Addon Sounds folder)
5. Close the editor and test.
Your alert will appear every time sword and board procs.
If instead you want an aura to appear every time SS is available
(regardless if cd cycled or from sword and board proc)
you'd instead select an "action usable" trigger from the dropdown and input "Shield Slam"
as the action to check.
It works perfectly. A big thanks to you. I will just have to find ou how to remove the animation completely and only have the .wav I added but the server went down before I found the way to remove the animation but I am sure it's pretty easy anyway ;)
