Tidy Threat  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.8
by: danltiger [More]
Tidy Threat is a simple threat monitor which is simple enough for a novice to understand, yet powerful enough for a Tank.

Simple explanation:
While in combat, the status bar grows upward indicating how "hot" the enemy thinks you are. Causing damage or casting heals will raise that level.

If you reach the mark on the thermometer, the enemy will turn and start hitting YOU. As you continue to attack, the bar can continue to rise into the RED area, indicating the amount of threat that you would need to lose in order to shed the attention of the bad guy.

If you're DPSing: Don't go into the RED!
If you're tanking: Stay in the RED!

More Complex Explanation:
The status bar shows your threat compared to the next-highest threat for the rest of your group. If you are the top threat holder, it will also show how much your threat exceeds the next highest. In other words, if you are tanking and the bar extends above the line, into the red, you've got solid aggro.

No mode changes are required for Tank vs DPS usage; The interface is universal. For additional data, players can enable the Detail Window, which will display real threat numbers.

Type '/ttt' into the chat window to bring up the configuration panel, or right-click the Tidy Threat frame.

Yay!

Edit: Finally got to try this in raid last night, and it works great! One request though. I would be useful if tidythreat gave an indication that my mirror images were active. Hammering away on the boss while tidy is glowing bright red at me is scary. I think omen greys out my threat bar when they're up.

Thanks again!

Another user reported this error, and it seems that the Wow Client is loading a nil value into my TidyThreat's saved variables. I've added some code to perform a check of the variable's type, but the servers are down, so I can't check it. As soon as they're up, I'll post something.

In the meantime (if you happen to play on non-US servers) you can try two things:

/ttt reset - Which will reset the variables; This may completely solve your problem.

The other thing you can try is clearing your .WTF files.

Hope that helps!

Haha, yeah, that might be a little scary; I'll see what I can do about some indicator. :-)

As a side note; To test this, I ended up setting up a dual-box config so I can play on both me and my wife's PTR characters, simultaneously. Kinda makes me want to try it on LIVE servers..

Found this addon yesterday and had to try it out.
It's really gr8. Don't plan to replace omen with this completely, but it's cool for most situations for fast threat info.

Tested this only a bit with a druid in party, so maybe I missed something...
I would love to see the bar updating on some events:
  • bar shows when some1 else has some aggro on mob besides me - could it show 100% as soon as I pull the mob (if I'm only one on aggro list)?
  • when targeting one mob, and aggro showing OK, if I target another mob, the threat stays unchanged - would be cool if it updated to show threat on the new target (or at least to 0 if more mobs can't be tracked)
  • and also would be cool if it would track aggro when soloing with a pet; I often need to take aggro from pet and other way around

I'm using (trying out) SimpleThreatMeter as well, and it has the behavior as I mentioned here, which is cool imo. Tidy Threat has some more nice features though, so I would love to see those changes (or option to choose).

Just my $0.05.
Otherwise gr8 job!

Y'know what? I thought that most of those features you described were already in Tidy Threat, so I went to test them out... and found that it wasn't updating properly during changes to targets with no threat. So, I fixed that. And, I changed the behavior to show 100% threat when you're the only threat on the list. Also, things work fine soloing with my pet (since I do most of my testing on a hunter).

Cheers!

Is it only me, or did the option that auto hides TTT during solo play [no pets] quit working?

It might not only be you, but it seems to be working fine, here. Have you tried using /ttt reset?

No, I haven't... I'll give it a try. Haven't been playing as much recently. I'll report back.

Actually, you were right. It was "working" for me, because I'd had it manually hidden (/ttt hide).

I'll probably add another /ttt command, since I personally like the meter to pop up and warn me when I enter combat, regardless of my group or pet status.

I was just writing back to tell you that I tried it on my macbook and the same problem was happening. A new /ttt command would be great, as I use MSBT and another addon named AggroNotifier to let me know that I've drawn aggro.

I'd like to only see this meter pop up when I'm not playing solo (I don't play a pet class) so seeing my threat isn't so important in solo play.

Thanks!

Updated! How's this work for you? Just use the standard ol' /autohide thingy..
