Faceroller  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.2.9
by: hungtar [More]
please accept my apology for abandoning this addon and not answering your support requests.

I don't play wow anymore and thus any request will remain unaswered.


What is Faceroller?

Faceroller is an addon in the spirit of Event Horizon with the look of Faceshooter. It's focus lies on using a minimal amount of screen space while showing anything you need to know at the moment.

It will show you only one icon on the screen: the highest priority ability, which should be used next. Once the ability was used, it will reevaluate all cooldowns and debuffs on your target and present you the next spell.

As this needs tracking of cooldowns and debuffs and making decisions what to suggest when, Faceroller is split into modules. And to get some use out of Faceroller, you will need a module that fits your talent spec (See below for a list of modules).

You will get little or no use out of Faceroller if your toon is below level 80!


What Faceroller is NOT

First and foremost, Faceroller is not all knowing. It only keeps track of your current target and therefore can assist you only with a single target.


How to use Faceroller

First, you will need a module that works with your spec. There are currently modules available for the following specs:
  • Warrior:
  • Shadow Priest
  • Balance Druid
  • Deathknight:
    • Frost 1 (included, experimental*, by hectolight, module name: dkdwfrost)
    • Frost 2 (included, experimental*, by Kallsuh, module name: dkdwfrost_Kall)
    • unholy
    • blood
  • Paladin:
    • Retribution
    • Prot (included, experimental*, by lloydbates)
  • Warlock:
  • Hunter:
    • mm/sv/bm hunters (included, all in one module named simplehunter)
  • Shaman:
    • Enhancement (included)
    • Elemental (included, experimental*)
  • Mage:
    • FFB (included, experimental*)
    • Arcane (included, experimental*)
  • Rogue:

* These modules may not always work as expected. If they don't, please leave a comment.

If you see the message "init failed for module ... (Reason: none given)" enable debug output with /fr debug. Make sure your character knows all the spells, required by the module you are using, before reporting it as a bug!

Install a module of your choice along with Faceroller. Start WoW. You can fire up the GUI with /fr config or by clicking on the LDB plugin (if you have a broker display).

Note: Faceroller rememberrs different modules for both specs, if you have dual spec. If you switch specs for the first time after installing Faceroller, don't forget to configure!

Note: All modules require your character to be level 80 to work!

Getting started with your own module

Writing your own module can be as easy as editing a lua table. See Faceroller_EasyExample (included in the zip) for an example how that works.

If the possibilities provided by the Easy* API are too restraining, you will need some knowledge of lua or you will have a hard time writing your own module. Have a look at Faceroller_ExampleModule (included in the zip). It's a simple module that does the same as Faceroller_EasyExample but with a more complex API. The comments are quiet extensive and should give you a good overview how things work.

The module Faceroller_SimpleEnhancementShaman uses a mixture of both and might help you as well with getting started.

Also, have a look at the documentation at github. If you have further questions, leave a comment.


Want to share your module?

If you wrote a module but you don't want to maintain it yourself, i can include it in the zip here. Just send me a PM or leave a comment where i can find your module. Note: since i won't be able to test all modules, new included modules will be marked as experimental for a few weeks. If too many people complain about an experimental module, it will get deleted. So please make sure it really works.

Following is a (possibly incomplete) list of specs, for which there is currently no module:
  • Feral Druid
  • Rogue: assassination, subtlety

Credits
  • Icon skin taken from oUF_Fleetfood.
  • Idea for corner indicators from Grid.
  • and a big Thank You to everyone that used an early Faceroller version and to those who report bugs and write modules!

Death Coil bug

hello,

When using the Warlock modules any time a user casts Death Coil it will halt the display of the suggested spell and instead default back to the icon of something else like Life Tap.

Some users will report that it has a countdown text over the Life Tap icon, this is from OmniCooldown or similar addons but removing/disabling it doesn't solve the problem of Faceroller not showing you the current priority cast.

Other spells with long cooldowns are not impacted, Shadow Flame, Shadow Fury are both fine. It's only Death Coil.

This leads me to believe it may be a problem with Death Coil (Warlock | Death Knight) and the addon getting confused about something, but I haven't the skillset to confirm or disprove that suspicion.

I'd like to see this issue resolved however and can supply documentation/video/screenshots if needed.

I 100% agree. I can't reliably use this addon to monitor my rotation until there is a way to see what's coming up next. I start spamming the hell out of my button with about 1-2 seconds left before the ability comes off CD, but if I don't see it's up until AFTER the CD has cleared, that will be a definite dps loss over the span of a boss fight.

Ideally, I would prefer TWO boxes, so that I can manually prioritize, because I can't tell an addon "if the mob is a DUH mob, I want Exo to come next regardless".... or "this is a large trash pull, so use AoE spells first. Maybe something like this:

(small)Box1...... (big)Box2......... (small)Box3...... (small)Box4

Box 1 would be your cool-down abilties (like Avenging Wrath), Box 2 would be the ability to use now (i.e. OFF cooldown), Box 3 would be the ability that will be off CD next, and Box 4 would be the ablility after that.

Before the flaming starts, I understand that there is already a Ret Pally addon that does similar things to what I am describing, but I am looking for an all-in-one addon that I can use with ALL my toons. I don't want to use [Serious Help In Timing] for my pally, and [Watcher] for my hunter and [Faceroller] for my shammy...

It would be much better if there was one addon (Faceroller) that supported all those classes, but had the features mentioned.

Please don't flame me for this ... I really am not an idiot . I have installed faceroller for use with my lvl 80 warlock. I d/l'ed the 3 modules for it and put the folders everywhere that is possible to put them. When that didn't work, I resorted to reading the instructions which didn't help. I have tried putting the module folders in the ..\addons\ folder and in the ..\addons\faceroller\ folder and in the ..\addons\faceroller\modules\ folder. After relogging into WoW after each move, I still don't see any modules in the "select module" dropdown box. Please let me know what I am doing wrong.

Feature request

Would lIke to see a secondary off window that would show procs so they are not prioritized over other more important spells, for instance Slam! being prioritized over bloodthirst and whirlwind, only thing that this mod is missing.

Please seriously consider this option, and have your script handler direct the spell based on window type. much like you did with the indicators.

go look into the CLCRet addon and see what i mean.

basically it's this, the way the formatting has it now is that it displays what skill to use right? well once you get to the portion where you're just waiting for something to come off cooldown it then quickly displays what to use.

my suggestion is simply having a secondary icon for what is/possibly coming up next so you can be ready to spam that ability making sure it gets off with absolutely no downtime whatsoever.
