Would it be possible to make this wonderful addon work together with those dbm mob health bars? As a healer I often can not target or focus the bosses because I need those frames.

Just uploaded Beta 3 which will allow you to change the tracking target to target, target's target or focus.

@ Richerrich: It should already work with Databroker's, if it doesn't-- please let me know!

Also to go along with this- I want to make the main window hideable for those who don't want to see it.

@ Manaman: I'll try working something like that into it for the next patch.

@ Bane32: A quite short while after starting vulture I did hear about TimeToDie, I started looking for it- however from what I can tell, not only has it not been updated, it's also been removed from at the very least curse.

I think the LDB version might still be floating around somewhere swo maybe I could have a look at that at some pont.

There was a mod like this at one time. It was called Time To Die. Perhaps take a look at it? It was a great mod but I guess it was never updated. I know there was a LDB import made but it doesn't work unfortunately. Perhaps you can find it laying around and take a look at the code. Just a thought.

Target of Target

As a healer I would likely have the tank targeted. Any chance this could show also the Target of Target? Thanks.

You can now drag 'n drop Vulture (beta 2) while holding down shift, or move it by changing the coordinates in the interface options panel.

Great, unique addon. Does need some more configuration and a drag 'n drop interface though
Hope you keep maintaining this until it can suits everyone's liking!

Moving it will be one of the first things I'm adding in (however since I'm quite new to lua I wouldn't expect to make it a drag'n drop type of moving).
I can help you with making it drag'n drop mate, It's actually pretty simple

It doesn't quite work like that I'm affraid. It makes the estimate by looking at how much dps was done through the last 10 seconds, then looks at how much health is left- and estimates how much longer it will take to kill doing that amount of DPS.

You might be able to get a similar effect by changing the damage delta to something like 3 or 6 seconds- but quite frankly I really doubt it could get a half decent estimate out of such little data.

Great idea. Can't wait to see how it turns out in later updates... would be nice to be able to move the window and stuff.
Mainly just want something to see if we're going to make the enrage timer on a specific boss
