Reliant Tanking Monitor

Version: 0.4.39 Stable Beta
by: Haturod [More]

Reliant Tanking Monitor(ReliantTM) is a tool for tanking. It will generate a debuff list of DeBuff Timer Bars with text including name, duration and stack info. Example of the text of the timer bars:

Demoralizing Shout [20 seconds]
>3< Sunder amor [18 seconds]
Essence of Eck [ 33 minutes]
It will also feature 2 extra focus frames which you can set to monitor your 2 offtanks. It will generate a debuff list for those targets.

You can also set an message which you can send to that tank. The message will be send as an whisper unless the target of the message also has ReliantTM. Then it will display that message like a raid warning similiar to the ones your get in mods like Deadly Boss Mods.

You can always check the changelog for up and comming changes!

How to use:
Type /Rel for the options menu. In there you can hide, size orient the bars as you please. Libshared bar textures and sounds supported.

Reliant has 3 bars. OT1, OT2 and the Player Anchor (which will feature some more functionality in the future). You can lock unlock, set a target and send message with the 3 buttons on top(or below) of those bars. to move the bar, hold the right mouse button down and drag the bar while it is unlocked. You can only set a target if the bar is unlocked by clicking on the middle button. Lefft and right clicking on the left button will send messages you set in the options.

The player anchor is still pretty dead, but that'll change soon

Also available on Curse.

Feel free to play around and let me know if somthing is wrong or you have an idea of what can be added.

Thanks to:
Rustig, Ginga, Lom, Pain and others from the Aspiration guild on Kilrogg and others for testing!

Perfect. Thank you! I really like this addon.

Some ideas that would be nice, but not required:
The ability to lock the player selected.
Maybe be able to move the title bar into the health bar (justify left). To make it even more minimalistic.
The ability to select a border design and a bar design. (Which I know you are still working on the design, just I figure I would list it).

The only bug I see is some debuffs (like exhaustion) have like a negative million seconds remaining:
Exhaustion [-4389424]

And even though I have Player Debuffs hidden, they show up again everytime I log in.

Again, thanks for this addon. Keep up the good work.

Thanks a Bunch mate Any options you can think off are good to. I'm thinking about a monitor on the healers to see if they are incapacitated or so to help decide if you wanna use a cooldown or not
