Ellipsis (Multi-Target DoT Timers)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 4.2.4
by: Kith [More]

Due to extensive changes, nearly all text in Ellipsis was altered rendering language translations for anything but English inaccurate. Anybody willing to take on the task of translating the mod (and the options especially) into other languages, please PM me and we can sort out getting the mod translated once again. Thanks!

Ellipsis (indicating omission)
Typography - A mark consisting of three periods, colloquially known as 'dot-dot-dot'.


Ellipsis is an addon that features multi-target aura tracking for spells that you (and your pet) cast on others. Additionally it keeps track of your pets spells when cast on others, tracks ground-targeted AoEs, temporary minion summons and totems. Cooldowns for your items, pet abilities and your own abilities can also be tracked. Options can be accessed by typing either /ellipsis or /...

Terminology
Aura - HoTs, DoTs, Buffs & Debuffs cast by you or your pet
Unit - Yourself, your pet, party members or hostile mobs (basically anything you can hurl spells at)

Auras, Units & Unit Groups
All auras you cast are attached to the unit they are cast on and these are then seperated into one of 7 groups when displayed. The first 4 groups are based on what the unit is, the 5th is a special case (see The Non-Targeted Unit below), and the last 2 are overrides for your current target and focus to keep them seperate (if desired) from every other displayed unit. Each group can be assigned to any of the 7 available display frames, and multiple groups can be assigned to a single frame.

Example: Assign all harmful units to frame [1], and your target to frame [2] to quickly reference the DoT situation on your current target 'pulled out' from the mess of all your other DoTs.

The Non-Targeted Unit
Some auras exist without any unit to attach themselves to such as temporary minion summons, totems, and ground-targeted AoE spells. These are all grouped together under the special Non-Targeted unit, which is the sole member of the non-targeted group (and can be assigned to a display frame and sorted just like any other unit).

Installation
There are two 'mods' included with Ellipsis, the main mod itself (folder: Ellipsis) and the configuration options (folder: Ellipsis_Options). Only the first is required to use the mod, though you will not be able to change options without the latter; Ellipsis_Options is also Load on Demand and thus won't use up any resources until you begin changing options (which is also why its a seperate folder/addon).

L.CDMaxDurationDesc = 'Set the maximum duration of cooldowns (in minutes) that will be tracked by Ellipsis.\n\nA setting of 0 will disable max duration checking, allowing cooldowns of any duration.'

-- 2.0.3 --
Fixed glitch with mages due to Water Elemental now being permanent or nothing rather than a talented duration buff.

-- 2.0.2 --
- 4.0.3 release.

-- 2.0.1 --
- Class Data changes made. I'm sure I missed some as I haven't been properly following the class changes for 4.0.1 so please let me know if anything errors, isn't tracked or has the wrong timer.

Once again, i'm sure i've missed some (probably newly added abilities), so please let me know if any problems occur.

-- 2.0.0 --
- Base update for compatibility with 4.0.1. No in-depth testing done due to lack of available time though most things should work. Things that are likely to be broken will apply to new/changed spells that had special requirements (such as some AoE's and shaman totems). Please let me know of any issues with these.

-- 1.5 --
- ToC Update

-- 1.4 --
- Fixed bug with detecting cooldown of Holy Shock & Penance (thanks Jzar)
- Fixed bug with Searing Totem duration detection (I swear there weren't 10 ranks last time I played!)
- Updated internal Libs to most recent versions

-- 1.3a --
- Corrected some missing translations in the zhTW Options locale.

-- 1.3 --
- Actually removed the Poison Cleansing Totem entry instead of just claming to.

-- 1.2 --
- Made the following changes to ClassData (internal spell ID references):
- - Divine Hymn: changed ID
- - Disease Cleansing Totem: replaced by Cleansing Totem
- - Poison Cleansing Totem: removed
- - Polymorph: added serpent, cat, rabbit and turkey

-- 1.1 --
- Made compatible with 3.1 LUA changes.

-- 1.0 --
- Full release.

-- 0.78 RC2 --
- Updated totem durations to new values.
- Added Feral Spirit to 'aoe' timer tracking.

-- 0.77 RC1 --
- Missing translations fixed.
- You can now add 'Do Not Track' entries by drag-n-drop on spell and item icons and all non-needed information should be stripped to ensure the setting works correctly
- You can now Ctrl+Right-Click on totem timers to destroy that particular totem.
- Shifted check for mage talents in regards to water elemental. Talent data was loading 'after' my check initially. Mages should get an accurate timers for water elemental now if they have the appropriate talents.

-- 0.76 --
- I'm an idiot and left debugging code in the WOTLK version, its gone now.

-- 0.75 --
- Will now track timers on target dummies.
- Cooldowns will now be announced to raid when in a raid group, and not party
- Rewrote notification system to handle locales better.
- Translations added for German (by [email protected]'jaeden) and French (by [email protected] éternels).

-- 0.74 --
- Changed a Blizzard function call after its name was changed in a recent build to allow options to work properly again via /ellipsis
Note: The next version will most likely be 0.75 for both WOTLK and LIVE when required, as 0.74 is a WOTLK-only update.

-- 0.73 --
- Rewrote totem destruction handling to use a new event-based system (via an event I never previously knew existed), totems timers should now properly update when destroyed whether its manually, via Totemic Call or by going out of range.
Important: Needs testing on WOTLK servers as i'm unable to do it myself (no Shaman :<)

-- 0.72 --
- Added the option to colour target identifiers based on the class of the target.
- Cleared player, pet and aoe timers appropriately on death.
- Default location for the Prominent Targets anchor shifted slightly so it does not overlap the Targets anchor.
- Fixed an error that was causing announcements to goto party chat instead of raid chat when in a raid.

-- 0.71 --
- If you cast a totem of one type while another totem of the same type is active, the timer should be destroyed as appropriate.
- AoE list updated for WOTLK version undoing a mistake made when 0.70 went live that prevented tracking of all 'wotlk only' aoe and unique spells.

-- 0.70 --
New Features:
- Prominence: You can now make No Target (AoE), Player and Pet timers promienent, that is, attach them to a seperate anchor from the rest of your aura targets.
- Cooldown Offsets: You can now offset cooldown timers (icons) from the main bar, either with or without a 'tag' linking them back to their position on the bar.
- Transparency: You can now make certain gui elements transparent via their colour pickers, these include most of the cooldown bar elements and the background for aura timers.
- Pet Tracking: You can now track buffs you cast on your pet (used to be a package deal with player tracking).
- Profiles: Profiling options for settings have been included, if you are updating from a version of Ellipsis prior to 0.7, then the default profile for everyone is "Default", for new users, an individual profile will be generated for each player. In either case, you will need to change settings if you wish the alternative behaviour.
- LibSink: Ellipsis now uses LibSink for visual notification output for expired and broken timers, this includes options to output to all main Blizzard locations (raid warning, error frame, chat etc) as well as Channel, SCT and MikSBT options.

Fixes:
- Redone the options panel to be more informative and to better group option categories.
- Aura scanning re-written to more accurately track the status of player, pet, target, and focus timers. Please give this extra attention when testing.
- Aura Target Layout re-written to fix a few glitches and to improve performance, please give this extra attention (mainly the Configure Target Display and Max Targets options, please try as many combinations as you are willing).
- Fixed many other glitches and errors (hopefully all now, but I doubt it :p)

Known Bugs:
- When using offset tags for cooldown timers, the tag will bulge slightly while in motion, this is an artifact of how WoW renders the textures and there is no fix I know of for the time being. It is less prominent the further a timer moves, so the larger your bar and the shorter the timescale, the less pronounced it will be.

-- 0.68 --
- Fixed bug in Secondary Scanning which was causing lua errors (and for it not to work).
- Fixed a few spelling errors in the options.

-- 0.67 --
- Added the option to show raid icons on timer targets (needs additional testing that it accurately updates timers when icons change mid-combat)
- Fixed a few bugs introduced by the 'show stack in text' option.
- Moved cooldown icons 'behind' the timescale text to allow for reading the times.
- Fixed config updates to recognise the 'trackPlayers' setting properly.

-- 0.66 --
- Fixed a glitch where stacks weren't showing up properly for stackable spells (eg, Lifebloom)
- Hopefully fixed a glitch with cooldowns for some spells not showing up.
- Added an option to display spell stacks as part of the name display on the timer (this option will result in no stack being shown if your using icon mode as it has no spell text).
- Fixed a glitch where the secondary scan was picking up debuffs regardless of your options.

NOTE: For additional testing of the cooldowns on spells, added a debug option which will give you internal feedback about what the mod is up to. To activate it, type "/run Ellipsis.db.profile.debug = true" (without quotes) and to disable, the same but substitute 'true' for 'false'. If your not getting spell cooldowns showing up, please enable this and see if a) the spell missing is listed as being tracked and b) that its picked up when a cooldown event happens (obviously one of the above is failing).

-- 0.65 --
- Fixed a small glitch which was preventing some timers showing up.

-- 0.64 --
- There are now two versions of the mod, one for LIVE servers and the other for the WOTLK beta, please download the appropriate one for your game installation.
- Cooldown functionality now implemented.
- Can toggle ability to track auras (buffs) on player.
- Moved the 'lock' button for gui movement to a more prominant place.
- Numerous other tweaks and fixes.

Getting the following error, not sure what causes it:
Code:
Interface\AddOns\Ellipsis\AuraHandler.lua:11: attempt to call global 'KTD' (a nil value)
[C]: in function `KTD'
Interface\AddOns\Ellipsis\AuraHandler.lua:11: in function <Interface\AddOns\Ellipsis\AuraHandler.lua:9>

Uploaded a fix, i'd left some debugging code in the mod (bleh).

Very nice add on. As an old warlock Dotimer was like a mandatory add on, despite the number of uneeded feature in it.

I am very impressed and very grateful for this add on and really hope that you will ensure that it is rock solid, in terms of:
1- reporting
2-stability
3-display options.

These are what people look for in a Dot/Hot monitoring add on. The rest is really icing on the cake and you need to ensure you add on does not get bloated (sorry I work as a QA engineer, I tend to look at software in a critical manner).

Your cooldown bar is such a brilliant idea, I was most impressed by it. At first one wonders what that bar is and then you use your abilities and it hit you. Nice, simple and clear visual feedback on cooldown, easy to follow from a human standpoint.

Just brilliant, carry on with the excellent work.

Is there any way to set the tracking to only party members? If I run around buffing random people, I don't want to be tracking them.

Not at this time, but if your randomly buffing people, you can just right-click the created timer for them to cancel it; or set the mod to only track shorter duration timers (which is my personal preference due to long-term buffs like motw often being fire-and-forget for the most part).

Thanks. The right clicking to remove the buff was new. I was putting up that comment prior to grabbing the new version.

Ran into an issue on the PTR on my shaman. When loaded by itself, Ellipsis produces no errors. However, when loaded with addons that rely on the Ace2 framework, it produces this error that seems to relate to totemGroups within the classdata.lua.

*Edit #2*
If you read the original edit, disregard, somehow i had LUa errors turned off in the interface options. It's definitely related to the Ace2 framework.


Code:
[2008/10/12 10:23:08-71-x1]: Ellipsis-0.76\ClassData.lua:230: table index is nil

I take it back...I get those errors (and problems displaying test bars) with nothing but Ellipsis enabled. Appears to be Shaman-specific as my Warlock works just fine.

The problem was an errant entry in the class data for totems that no longer exists in WOTLK, thats been fixed now and 0.77 will be going up tonight that will fix that and a few other glitches.

I apologize if this has been addressed already, but I am new to the comments system here and am unsure if it is possible to search the comments.

The cooldown portion of the mod seems to do some strange things with DKs. I have noticed this in general with cooldown tracking mods and rune-using abilities, but many things that use a rune seem to be tracked as a cooldown when runes are used.

I haven't done extensive testing, so I'm not positive on what I'm seeing, but I know that I was getting very spammy cooldowns on some abilities, and what looked specifically to be DK presences. Almost every time I would use a rune, I would see the presence icon's pop up on the cooldown bar.

Not sure 100% what was going on. There appeared to be several abilities on the same cooldown, so I couldn't look at the other icons to see what exactly was going up there.

I can keep testing this and get more info on it, but if this sort of thing is normal and has been seen before, or just requires some threshold value changes to fix, I figured I would ask =p.

This is mainly an issue in that (far as I can tell) theres no way to know why a particular spell is on cooldown, only that it is; so I can't tell whether its on cooldown because of runes or if its naturally on cooldown due to ... well... its on cooldown. I can't really think of a solution to this other than perhaps allowing you to set a minimum duration before cooldowns are tracked, but this would cause issues if the real cooldown of that spell is below that threshold (if thats not the case with any DK spells, adding the option won't be very hard at all, so please let me know!).

Water Elemental Timer

Not sure if this even attempts takes talents into affect or not, but when I create a water ele on my frost mage, it shows a No Target timer for how long the ele will be up. It says 45 seconds, but with new talents, mine's up for 1 min. Can you adjust that? Thanks! LOVE this mod, by the way!

Hrm, the mod should do this anyhow. I'll have to check that its properly registering the talent. I'll do that next time I logon, and then hopefully I can upload my final release candidate :>

Thank you for this addon. Would it be possible to get a feature to set the timer text below the dot icon (when showing only icons)?
Like this:

[icon1] [icon2] [icon3]
15s ..... 8.5s ... 4.3s

It would be really nice.
