Gladius  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.0
by: Proditor, Rinu
What is Gladius?
Gladius adds enemy unit frames to arenas for easier targeting and focusing. It shows a health bar, a mana bar below the health bar (optional), a cast bar below the mana bar (optional), a class icon to the left side of the health bar (optional) and important buffs and crowd control durations (optional, overlays the class icon). The frame resizes itself to the current bracket (optional).

Gladius uses the 3.0.2 arena unit ids, therefore it'll add units automatically to the frame (byebye targeting macros) and you'll always be able to target/focus the enemies, regardless of if they are added when you're in combat. The cast bars and the buff/debuff timers should be 100% correct.

You can add important buffs and crowd controls in the auralist.lua file. You will have to select a priority for it. If a buff/debuff is already displaying when the spell is cast it'll only show up on the class icon if the priority equals or is higher than the current one displayed.

More features:
Arena enemies targets (optional): displays the class of the arena enemy's current target in a small frame on the health bar to the right.

Trinket status (optional): has a few different display options, but in general it shows if the PvP Trinket is ready for the arena enemy.

Slash commands:
/gladius ui, config, options - displays the configuration screen
/gladius test1-5 - shows a test frame with the chosen amount of test units
/gladius hide - hides the test frame
/gladius trinket - simulates a trinket being used for the first arena target

But.. but.. this is very similar to Proximo and SSAF?
Yes, I simply created this as a learning project for Lua. I actually didn't plan on releasing it but in the end I thought it turned out pretty good and decided to give it a go. I do not expect to start competing with the big boys, but perhaps someone else is interested in using it.

Thanks:
Thanks to Proximo, SSArena Frames and their respective developers for working as both inspirational and informational sources.

I just disabled the announcements, but I haven't been able to test it since, as my partner just logged off. Anyway, say I try to Cyclone a Priest by clicking on them using my Mouse 5 button on Gladius, it'll Cyclone the other person! It's random when it happens, but it Cyclones the person I DIDN'T click on, and sometimes I even take my sweet time in clicking on the correct target, making sure it's not just a misclick. It's so bad it actually caused me to lose a match vs a Priest/Rogue. The Rogue was down to 1,000 health, and Priest was silenced and my Mage had just died from a bleed. I stunned the Rogue, I was Cycloning the Priest while he was silenced (chain-CC) as his trinket was down, and the Rogue had a nasty 5 combo point Rip on him, along with a Rake. Well, the Rogue gets Cycloned INSTEAD of the Priest, and the Rogue trinkets and he gets healed to full.
Weird, should happen all the time or not at all. Will test it out later.

Is a larger number higher priority, or a smaller number. For example, if I have 2 abilities, A & B, and A = 1, and B = 2, does B show instead of A when the target is afflicted with both?
B shows

Hmm, might be true. No idea what's causing it though since it uses the combat log and you can't out range the log in arenas.

Outlining for focus

Can you make an outline on the frame of the person you have focused please. Or any kind of indicator really. Thank you for this great add-on and for your contribution to the community =)

Question for Proditor!

Question for Proditor!

Is it possible to implement a "tab cycle" through the listed targets in Gladius?

Example: I have Player#1 targeted, I tab then it targets player#2, and so on.

Thanks

Problem

Hey, i got a problem with Gladius...
It wont reset after a fight, it works perfectly the first time i log in and the first arena match but then when i come out from the arena match i can still see the nameplates from the players i just meet, and the next fight they will still be there. i have tried different version but non seems to work.
The only other major addon i use is Pearl Classic unit frames if it can be any problem with that maybe.
Any advice would be much appreciated!

Lightbulb Main Assist

The one feature I miss from Proximo is the ability to set a main assist whose target will be highlighted during arena matches. Are there any plans to reintroduce this feature? Thanks in advance, and thanks for the great addon.
