Ara Dotimer  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r11
by: Aranarth [More]
A debuff timer addon (beta).


This addon struggle for CPU/memory efficiency and as such doesnt have any in game configuration except for positionning.

To move timers, type "/dt" or "/dot" and a draggable purple window will appears. You can also mousewheel the window to change scale size. Once done with it, right-click the window to hide it or type the command again. You can also type "/dot grow" to have debuffs grow from "right to left" instead of "left to right".


It supports:
- PvP timers and diminishing returns.
- The following class abilities: warlock, druid, DK (partially), mage (untested), priest.
- Stacking debuffs.
- Talents and glyphs.

It will support later:
- Better focus/target visual effects.
- More classes.


If you have AddonLoader, this addon will load in delayed mode.
r10
- Fixed a random scalling issue.
- Added various debuff and glyph/pet effects (mostly DK)
- Update debuff durations of Plague Strike and Icy Touch.


r10
- Fixed a huge bug that was silently breaking the addon.


r9
- Finally Blizzard has implemented source IDs. This addon now takes full advantage of it. Ultra low CPU usage.
- Added "dontFade" field on spells. These won't fade; instead they will instantly disappear.
- Optimized combat event handling.


r8
- Removed a debug message.


r7
- Fixed a scaling issue.
- Added spells: Shadow Embrace (priest), Chains of Ice (death knight), Hungering Cold (death knight).
- Updated some glyphs.


r6
- Added the command "/dot grow" (or "/dt grow") to toggle the horizontal grow direction of timers (left or right). As a collateral change, it also reverse the duration order.


r5
- Fixed stacking numbers staying on screen.
- Fixed target level.
- Added stronger target/focus visuals (to improve/change/make less intrusive).
- Added spell: Fireball DoT (mage), .


r4
- Added support for PvP timers and diminishing returns.
- Added some missing spells: Frostbite (mage), Blackout (priest), Shadowfury (warlock).
- Extended the fade duration up to 15 sec to give a rough idea of when a diminishing return has reset.


r3
- Fixed a bug that was preventing users of AddonLoader to get the saved anchor position.
- Added a way to change scale: simply mousewheel over the purple window (due to how Blizzard implements scaling, you will have to move the window afterwards).
- Added class: Priest.


r2
- Added: stacking debuffs. (Im open for visual improvements.)
- Added: workaround(*) to handle refresh/dose until those events have proper source info. So this addon should now be usable in raid; with some restrictions: when the refresh/dose event occurs, the target must be one of target/focus/mouseover for the refresh to be handled.
- Changed: minor metatable improvements.
- Added: mage spells. (Alpha, not tested.)

(*)For those interested, here are the implementation details:

There's now an efficient way to retrieve informations about a specific player debuff without having to scan everything, but the spell name and rank must be provided. As I only retrieve name/rank info one time and cache it, if in the same session you start using another rank of the same spell that as the same base duration, refresh/dose won't be handled. It shouldn't be much of a problem since downranking is dead, and I hope that when we will XP in Northrend (and change spell in the same session), the refresh/dose events would provide sources informations.


r1
- Initial release.

Any chance this will be updated? Its absolutely the best dot timer I've had the pleasure of using.

With Corruption scaling with haste now the Corruption timer is off.

My first impression was, hmm no timerbars..and now i like this simple icon layout with textbased timer..worser, I can't leave without it, all other bar based addons are now horrible for me^^

This timer is the right way, thank you for this nice addon!

Some proposals:
the layout of AraDotimer takes a lot of space on my screen. The target text is very long, maybe shorten the name and using a condensed textfont. Who is target; the gray background, hmm i don't like it..Generally, a space optimiced layout would be fine.

I miss some basic settings. As destruction Warlock i don't need multitarget timers. A Switch for enable/disable multitarget timer would be perfect. A option for choosing growing up or down when multitarget is enabled.

I've tried just about every debuff timer addon and this one is by far been the easiest to setup/use. The low memory footprint is a plus as well.

I love all of Aranarth's mods.

Possible but I thought it might be useful

No problem, there remain the multi-target dotimer that I prefer

I don't know if is it possible to detect debuff as Stuf Unit Frames eg for me is it alone can detect Shock Charge Ley-Guardian Eregos when you use Temporal Rift

Could you add an option to disable target and focus tracking, I would like use Stuf Unit Frames to do that

Really nice... i think it will be usefull to see "pvp buffs/gains" of the enemy and evtl DR-timers.. maybe in bars not in buttons... something like necb but with a filter for example. just an idea.
Good work

One thing I've noticed recently is that when raiding with another affliction warlock it is picking up his Haunt and refreshing the one displayed in my dottimer. For example I'll be watching it waiting for it to show 5 seconds of uptime left (thats when the cooldown is up) and it will jump from whatever its at back up to 12 seconds before I've even cast it (I assume its picking up my fellow affilock's Haunt) however the default target debuff's will still keep going as normal. Hopefully that makes sense...I tried a couple of other dottimers and this wasn't happening.
In fact, this addon hope that one day Blizzard will give source info to refreshed auras. In the time between, I tried to use an efficient workaround, but it doesn't seem to do the job.

Here is a test version with a common workaround that, I think, other dot timers use (but this crap is heavy ): http://perso.orange.fr/aranarth/wow/...otimer-b9a.zip

I did however add Shadow Embrace to it, I like to be able to see it with all the DoTs.

Code:
--[[ Shadow Embrace  ]] { timer =  12 }, 32390, 32391, 32392, 32393, 32394
If only I had more time to finish this addon... And it still has a major flow because it tries to rely on an unfinished Blizzard implementation.

Unfortunatly, all I can do right now is poor maintenance. But Im happy you like it in beta version

If you have ideas to distinguish your target and focus in a cool looking way, please tell me. I will look into a "load on demand" config menu addon and work on more options.
Nah I ment if it wasn't possible to remove the background, THEN I'd change the color on it, as a second choice thingie =p

but other than that it's fine =) just the background that bothers me

Have any timers that are not from your current target fade out slightly, that would be interesting.

Or tint them a different color if they are on your focus, possibly.
