EventHorizon - DemoLock Icon
Version: 1.1
by: Warlocomotif [More]
EH - DemoLock
This is an addon designed to work in combination with EventHorizon



I've been using EventHorizon for quite a while, it's a fantastic add-on that shows me what I need to know in a compact way. It also does great in effectively letting me look into the future a little bit clearer than most add-ons do- to pre-plan my moves better.

For Demonology Warlocks however, some vital information is missing from EventHorizon. Notably, EventHorizon doesn't show Molten Core and Decimation. Now, it's not impossible to add buff bars for those 2, and it would work... But with 6 active bars to look at already (trinket bars excluded) and a UI that doesn't really have the extra space, that's not really something I want to be doing. Instead I chose to write an add-on that would simply draw a molten core / decimation icon on top of the Shadow Bolt Icon when either of those 2 buffs is active. The icon will display the number of stacks for molten core, or the time remaining for Decimation.

It's very basic, and far from perfect- and I actually will continue to also use power auras along-side EventHorizon. But it's still nice and sort of useful (especially without Power Auras or alike).

Please let me know what you think in the comments

Interesting Idea

That's quite a nice Idea and I will give it a try.
Nevertheless I believe that I might not dispense with PowerAuras, but that's really a clever idea from you.

Thumbs up Demo plugin

Yeah, definitely a good idea.
I'll also give it a try, maybe I can drop these powa events in the future.

I have an issue with this and my own config...

As soon as you use a predefined anchor in your myconfig.lua there ist no point of EventHorizonHandle available for your addon to fetch.

I'm good enough in interpreting code to find that problem, but after 3h of trying to change it I don't think my (very) limited knowledge of lua will get me anywhere with this problem xD

: And the icon does not get hidden by RedShift...

At this point I would honestly recommend waiting for Axis, from what I've read Axis is getting pretty close and will have this kind of functionality built in by default.
