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!

Type /fr config in your chat, uncheck lock frame, drag to a better position, check lock frame, close the config panel and there you go!

Thanks for reporting. Looks like the spell id for chain lightning is wrong. 47610 is frostfire bolt. that should be 49271 of course ... will be fixed in the next version.

top left corner shows the cooldown of Rapid Fire (green = ready). For MM the top right corner indicator shows the Readiness cooldown. For SV the bottom left shows Sniper Training.

Thanks!
Yeah, even with low latency it sometimes takes a bit "long" until your WoW client receives the update about the debuff being applied. I'll definitely look into this.

Edit: ok, that was easy enough. in 0.1.6.1 debuffs update faster.

Yes, I'm using the simplehunter module. No error messages...

You're right, I should have tried deleting the saved variables before I posted... I will do that when I get home... (at work right now)

The targeting part is working great, but now this happens:

Faceroller stars off with Hunter's Mark, which is correct... But as soon as I cast Hunter's mark, I get the teacup icon and that's all I get no matter what I do...

I didn't have a run last night so I only got to try a couple of things like rebooting and retargeting but the problem never went away...

Here's an issue though...

If I target something before the fight starts...

Example: Lord Jaraxxus after a wipe... You can target him but not attack him...

Faceroller doesn't start up when you target him (which is ok) but when the fight starts, it still doesn't start... If I untarget him and then target him again, it works just fine...

Another example: While jousting if you target an NPC (who is green) and the start the fight, Faceroller doesn't start...

And again, thanks for all the hard work... It's appreciated.
Argh, sorry about that. Must have reintroduced that bug in 0.1.4. Should work again in 0.1.5. I won't be able to test if the fix really works until Wednesday. Thanks for reporting this!

1) (Might be a big n00b question) What does the corner indicators indicate?

2) I have a question about the shot priorities... Faceroller appears to value Serpent Sting slightly higher that Aimed Shot, but most of what I read says the opposite is true... I am not pointing fingers, because different folks have different opinions... But could I ask why it's that way?
You are talking about the SimpleHunter module, right? The top left corner is the Rapid Fire cooldown (green = ready, red = on cooldown). For MM, the top right corner is Readiness. If you meant the EasyExample module, top left is Rapid Fire and bottom left is Sniper Training (turns red with less then 6 seconds left on the buff so you know when to stop moving, if possible).

Concerning priorities, if you are talking about the SimpleHunter module, you can easily change them with the command /fr opt pr X. Where X is a slash seperated list of abbreviations. You can get a list of understood abbreviations with /fr opt list. If you are using another module, there is no way to change priorities (just use the SimpleHunter module instead).
