A week ago i met a team that apperantly used some kind of addon to synchronise their attacks right after the cyclone fades. I am looking for some addon that can be configured in such a way that it shows the duration on certain spells cast by target members like cyclone/blind. The purpose of this would be that i would be able to sheep a blinded target right at the point that the blind will dissipate. Or in case of the cyclone, nuke the target down right at the moment that the cyclones disappears (before heals will land)
Being able to see the duration of a cyclone cast by the opponents would be nice too. that way i would be able to heal a cycloned person just before the others would start nuking him.
Does anyone know addons that can do such a trick? It would be so much appreciated! :D
(im not sure if an addon request like this is against the forums rules because i guess you will recieve quite some, in that case i apologise)
Does anyone know such an addon? Some people thought natur castbars could do the trick, but they are currently very bugged and im not sure if it does what i described before. Any help would be very appreciated! :)
Hmmm not an easy one. I'm not sure any of the bar mods I've used recently (ClassTimer and RBM) can track anything other than your buffs and debuffs. So if you were a druid and you cast cyclone you would get a bar but nobody else would and you wouldn't see cooldowns of other people bars. I believe NCB is the answer and I've not had any issues with NCB but it gets very spammy when your tracking everyones buffs and debuffs on various different targets. Its also a long time since I've used NCB so its hard to comment accurately on its current functionality.
Some things to concider firstly is the difficulty in tracking a single debuff or buff that is of interest when there are so many that dont. You'll end up with a list of bars with 10-20 bars for every damn buff just for one that is of interest. Secondly is latency. All these mods work by using the combat log and of course there is a certain amount of latency between you and your team mates so being accurate to a crucial split second will be really tricky.
I guess your probably doing this already but it might also be better to just have the person that cast the cyclone or debuff to shout on VT or TS when its running out so your team is ready to act.
You might check out Afflicted on WoWInterface; it's one of Shadowed's many excellent PvP-oriented addons. I haven't used it myself, as I rarely engage in organized PvP, but it might do what you're looking for.
I already use afflicted :) but it only shows the buff duration of the opponents, and the cooldown on those abilities. Not something like debuffs on enemy (like cyclone) or debuff duration on my teammate (cyclone or blind on teammate).
I tried installing the NECB package. Inside the zip file i found 2 folders, i installed them both. I did get some countdown bars but i also got loads of errors like (nil value error, or something like that). But thanks for the tips. maybe i just have to wait for a new NECB release.
