Paladin Buffer  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r1313
by: Shadowed [More]
Note!: I've not played a Paladin for a while and so this isn't maintained. Antiarc has written his own Pally Power replacement that I would recommend using in place of PB: http://www.wowace.com/addons/blessed/


Paladin Buffer is meant to simplify the assigning and managing both greater and single blessings... and there's not really much to it besides that. Includes a small buff status frame to see what the lowest greater and single blessing is overall and per class, the ability to buff individual classes through it as well as a key binding to smart greater and single buffing people. Syncs with other Paladin Buffer users, and includes an option (enabled by default) to sync with Pally Power.

Slash command is /paladinbuffer and the short cut is /pb

For broker users, you can use the plugin by fraz0815, Broker Paladin Buffer

Looks nice, will definitly try this one out in a raid later this week.

1) Can we have an option to disable the 'quickbuff button' and just have it show the class specific buttons (buffgui.lua)
2) The buttons are too big, no need to show the emblem icons for single/greater buffs (buffgui.lua)
3) The single buff assignment ui is fantastic, I always had troubles with pallypower in this regard.
But it's not possible to assign another paladin to buff char xyz with a single blessing, isn't it?
Maybe I'm just missing it, but a dropdown in the single assignment ui would be nice to assign single blessings for other paladins to buff. (assignui.lua)
Code:
[MyPaladin  [^]]
[OtherPaladin1 ]
[OtherPaladin2 ]

1) I'll add it eventually but have to redo some stuff first
2) The icons are being removed in the next push, but they won't be that much smaller, scale them down if you don't like the size.
3) You cannot assign a specific Paladin, it automatically picks the Paladin with the best buff to do it.

Already replaced PallyPower with this and it's working really well.

There are some features that I'm missing from PP:
- Remember last-used assignments... Would save a lot of time because in most parties I default to BoKings.
- In the assign window show what classes are actually present in the party/raid. For example, PP shows the individual player names in the the class column headers.
- Detailed information on the buff window; PP has these player buttons when you hover over the class button that show you the buff duration and range check per player. This could be done with a simple tooltip.

Looking forward to your next update, this could become a popular replacement

1) It's changed so it keeps your assignments, but it resets everyone elses
2) This will not happen, if you want to see a list of people in the raid either check raid frames or the single assignment windows
3) This will come with 3.1

You updated it and I didn't notice. 5 of us are running 1152 and he is running 1153. Not sure if it matters but since we are working on Sarth+3 I had everyone disable it and we will use in on a Naxx farm night when we can deal with hiccups. >.< No errors for the first hand full of wipes though.

He has no assignments, or he is not showing up in the /pb assign window period? Paladins using either this or PP should always show up in the assignment window even if they don't have any improved blessings.

They might have to either refresh, or he has to make sure that it's set to be enabled, if they have the mod disabled due to say not being in a raid instance, you won't see them showing up on syncs. Although, that probably should be changed so syncs still work but no frames show.

Great work, like it very much :-)
I was tired of typing /pb assign-config, so i wrote a little ldb hack. if anyone is interested, copy&paste following lines to the end of config.lua

Code:
--dirty LDB support assuming you have ldb1.1 loaded from somewehere else
LibStub:GetLibrary("LibDataBroker-1.1"):NewDataObject("Paladin Buffer", {
	type = "launcher",
	label = "Paladin Buffer",
	OnClick = function(_, msg)
		if msg == "LeftButton" then
			local Assign = PaladinBuffer.modules.AssignGUI
			Assign:CreateFrame()
		
			if( Assign.frame:IsVisible() ) then
			Assign.frame:Hide()	
			else
			Assign.frame:Show()
			end
			
		elseif msg == "RightButton" then
			if( not registered ) then
			if( not options ) then
				loadOptions()
			end

			config:RegisterOptionsTable("PaladinBuffer", options)
			dialog:SetDefaultSize("PaladinBuffer", 650, 525)
			registered = true
			end

			dialog:Open("PaladinBuffer")
			
			end
	end,
	icon = "Interface\\Icons\\INV_Hammer_01",
	
	-- Remove --[[ --]]  to add a simple tooltip
	--[[
	OnTooltipShow = function(tooltip)
		if not tooltip or not tooltip.AddLine then return end
		tooltip:AddLine("Paladin Buffer")
		tooltip:AddLine("Click to show blessing assignment")
		tooltip:AddLine("Right-click to open the options menu")
	
	end,
	--]]
})
Tried to make a standalone addon, but it seems that my poor knowledge of lua didn't want me to open the damn options frame, only assigngui, seems to be due some local functions?

A trick you could do is instead, SlashCmdList["PALADINBUFFER"]("assign") to toggle the assignment UI and SlashCmdList["PALADINBUFFER"]("config") for the configuration, I'll expose those two functions next push.

Is there anyway to make this addon show when you are solo? While I know the main goal of these style addons is to quickly organize raid buffs I used to use pallypower as a self-buff button that sat over in the corner. I thought that having the everywhere else option checked would show it whenever, but I am only able to get the buff casting frame to appear when I am in a group, raid, bg, etc and not just when I am walking around. Is there some way to just make the buff casting anchor show 100% of the time and never hide?

The new options to change background are great, I just notice some range detection errors:

I'm in a 25-man raid, and flying somewhere mid-air heading to the instance, ie. there's noone in range nor visible. All buttons are red ("Can rebuff") except paladin is yellow ("Cannot rebuff", ofc I am in range of myself). Shouldn't all buttons be yellow, because noone is in range?

In fact, atm there's no difference between the case where all players of one class are in range, and where none of the players of class are in range, both buttons turn up red.

It uses a slightly different method of detecting range that I wanted to try, but it hasn't worked very well. Next push it goes back to the normal, is everyone strictly within 30/40 yards.

Is there an easier way to change assignments then having to /pb assign everytime? maybe a mouse scroll up or down chnages the wanted buff like PP i guess

I think the idea was actually very good, but perhaps the code logic was not entirely correct.

Btw, what do you do if there's an offline/out-of-range player in the raid and you want to buff that class anyway. Seems that the addon currently refuses to buff until all players are in range (ie. the button is red), any way to override that (for example, with control+click or so)?

Thanks, works now (uploaded as Broker_Paladin Buffer).

@dracula
there is an option called "percentage of in range to buff" which should help.
