    zene, if you say you're using the health bar the default way this would mean that Lumi, Tabu and Wtfh are all at 1% health? In the default 100% life is shaded dark, and dead is too, and much of a raid color means low health.

    Same for the lifebloom stuff. While I don't know the module, maybe it can warn you when your lifebloom is about to fade? Maybe bind it to the border or a corner icon to only get alerted 3sec before lifebloom fades? Why do you really need to know exactly how many seconds are left?

    Thanks again for the quick reply. I guess maybe the health bars are inverted then. The colored part goes does as health decreases :D My mistake, i'll try to revert it back and see how it works out.

    I agree, the mana bar was just there and since I was used to seeing it in healbot I went with it. I don't necessarily need this info. If I could make that bar be the remainder of the lifebloom stack it would be best. I'll mess with it some more.

    I tend to be able to control my other actions better when I can see how long the lifebloom stack is up on one or more people. Perhaps its just because i'm new to druid healing and haven't got accustomed to it yet.

    I will try unloading some of the addons and see if I can truly see how that extra bar will end up working, thanks!

    Zene: honestly, your setup is very confusing. I recommend using the default setup for health bars, meaning that someone at 100% health is more or less black/dark, and the more damage a unit has taken, the more you'll see the class color, growing down from the top. As for the extrabar, while I haven't used it myself I can tell you that it's responsible for the blue bar to the right of each unit frame. Can't you bind the lifebloom status to the center text? I'd suggest to enable the "Text 2" indicator, then you have two lines. You could use the upper line for incoming heals and damage, the lower line for unit name and the remaining seconds of your lifebloom. Plus, you could still use the colored corner indicator for the lifebloom stack.


    Thanks for the quick reply Maia. I actually do use the health bar that way... the problem is when the lifebloom bar indicating time left on lifebloom by going down overlaps with the health bar haha. I know it's not the best way to do it which is why I'm looking for a better way. Hrm. I always assumed the blue bar was the "mana" bar. I forgot to indicate I had the GridManaBar addon installed as well. It correlates to mana/rage/energy. Perhaps having both that and 'extrabar' overlap and that's why I can't get it to work. I do use 2nd text to indicate the Deficit health, so -1.8k etc. Again the screenshot isn't the best as it was out of combat =/ apologies for that.

    I will try using the text to indicate lifebloom remaining and seconds and try that. I'll try disabling the mana bar and see if that helps with the whole "extra bar" thing. I couldn't find much documentation on the extra mods, perhaps I was not looking hard enough.

    Thanks again.

    Hi, I'm a new convert from Healbot + Lifebloom. I installed Grid + Clique and so far i'm enjoying it, except for one thing. Here's a screenshot of how I have grid set up



    I have the "ExtraBar" and "Lifebloom" addons installed in attempts to track my lifebloom stack. And the latest WAU Grid/Addons from yesterday.

    The top right corner has 3 colors for displaying how many lifeblooms are on the target and the bar on the "Brag" toon is a timer for showing the uptime of my lifebloom stacks. The problem I have is that when a character is low on health it shows the health bar higher due to this decreasing bar despite him being at -5k hp for example. It shows the lifebloom at 6s instead of the health bar at -5k so it makes things a bit confusing. On top of this i'm not sure what the "extrabar" actually does, it was just recommended in one of the EJ posts.

    Can someone explain perhaps a better way of displaying the lifebloom uptime in some sort of "bar" or timer with Grid?

    Thanks
