    Another feature request if you don't mind: An unobtrusive sound that plays when a DR resets? I personally only use the addon to track Incapacitate (sheep) DR, so it doesn't matter to me if there's one sound per DR type or a different sound for each DR, but being able to choose which sound file plays might be neat.

    Yeah, I saw that. If you don't mind some theory, I want to talk about the practical use of this addon. I'm a 2600+ mage, and I love information addons like this one.

    I'm in an arena, I want to sheep someone. The reason this addon is useful is that I want to be able to look and determine, VERY quickly, whether or not I should start the cast right away. I may determine that I should use another form of CC (counterspell, deep freeze, etc.), or I may decide to just wait a couple seconds before sheeping if the DR is nearly reset.

    Nowhere in that logical process does the diminishing factor matter. I frankly can't see anyone processing that information quickly enough to make it worth worrying about, but I could be wrong. To me, you want to know two quick things: Will it be full duration, and if not, how long until it will be full duration.

    Everything else is just a distraction (to me). Looking at the text and having it be a different color makes it harder to get used to looking for the number.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that the nature of this addon is that it is a decision making tool, one that facilitates a decision that has to be made very quickly and easily. The aesthetic should keep in mind that you need to be able to parse all the necessary information at a glance. For me, that pretty much excludes parsing colors, fractions, and the 'wheel' cooldown effect.

    Works wonderfully - the only thing I'd request is an option to scale the font size, and maybe set the color it displays in, but neither feature is really mandatory.

    Beta-7 is out, including fixed STUF support, an option to display big countdown and another option to anchor the icons to screen (allowing "free" placing).

    You're amazing, thanks so much. I'll test it out tonight.

    Nevermind, I just realized the countdown is on by default. Awesome feature, but what I was really hoping for was the number covering the entire button, i.e. OmniCC style. Could you possibly consider making that an option? I'm sure I'm not the only one that would use that.

    Would you mind telling me how to toggle the option? Can't find it in the option menu.

    Just wanted to check in to see if you saw my request from page 4 - being able to see an 18 second countdown every time a CC is up instead of the 'clock' style countdown would be awesome, any interest in implementing this feature?

    I love this addon, but I'd love an option to have a countdown timer until DR resets, instead of the 1/2, 1/4, etc. messages.

    To clarify: I don't really care how short the next cast will be, I just want to know how long it'll be until the DR resets. A number counting down until that time would be greatly appreciated - maybe a checkbox that replaces the 1/2 and 1/4 with a countdown.
