This is a complete re-write of my pre-TBC addon called "BuffMe", but since I abandoned it and some new interest sparked up recently I decided to take another look at it and see if anything could be improved. The result is PuntFu, a FuBar-based plugin that is also able to be run standalone thanks to the embedded libraries it comes with.
If you're forgetful like me, but are always prepared and fully-buffed for raids then this mod is for you! It provides a configurable list to remind you of particular buffs you are missing without you having to skim over your buffs and work out on your own what you're missing (or so you can see who in the raid is slacking off buff-duty!)
Very simply, YOU provide the list of buffs you want PuntFu to track, there is no pre-defined list anymore, it queries Babble Spell with the localised buff name and appropriate returns the correct string and icon for that spell. NOTE: There are some limitations with this, which I have only came across briefly whilst testing, so if you get a validation error trying to add a perfectly valid buff, blame BabbleLib not me :)
Here's how to quickly get started:
- Right-click on the PuntFu entry on the minimap or on your FuBar.
- Navigate to Add Buff until you see an editbox appear to the side of it.
- Type in the exact name of the buff you want to monitor as shown on the buff's tooltip.
- Tada! You can now see the activity status of the buff you just added by hovering over PuntFu or in your detached tooltip.
Is there any way to configure it to take into account that Gift of the Wild (And other like buffs) are just longer versions of Mark of the Wild. I think it would be quite annoying tracking both and always seeing that I am missing one buff.
Planning on doing that, I've made it lightweight currently where there's no in-built tables of buffs to track, so there's no sorting or categorisation. The problem with checking valid buffs based on class also because of that.
I'm tempted to make a library to sort buffs and spells by class, as I know alot of mods are in similar situations, would be nice if there was a central database from which to pull the information from across different Ace2 addons.
Im a war and I ve been using this addon; works like a charm except with "Death Wish"; although I can add the buff to the list, when it pops the addon does not recognise it; all the others i.e. Battle Shout, etc work fine. Any idea why this is happening?
any update on the temporary enchants and elixers etc.? i'd personally love it to work with foods (well fed), since that is the one thing i can't put on during combat if i forget it just before the pull -.-
NICE ive been hunting for this, but i dont think i can use it until it has per class filtering. (im actually in SSC right now, looking for an addon like this) and i dont get much time to check forums anymore.
