HasPvEGear
Version: 1.1.2
by: esi [More]
HasPvEGear
-----------

I made this addon by request of some of my friends. What it does is it announces in /yell when a player on the opposite team has less than a specified amount of Max HP (by default 25,000). By announcing this, you can easily tell what players are wearing PvE gear and kill them first.

Changes for 1.1.2:
-Added support for custom channels and whispers
-Upped default threshold to 25k

Changes for 1.1.1:
-Addon will no longer check outside of arenas

To Do:
-Optimize the method I go about checking max HP
-Implement support for buff checking
-Per-class thresholds
-BG Support
-Suggestions?

No offense taken, I appreciate the feedback. BoK will be interesting because it is a percent buff and affects different player's stamina differently because they have more/less, etc.

May want to up the threshold a bit, my rogue is at 26.5k health with no buffs in full pve gear, and i would imagine that paladins, dks, and warriors would have even more health.

I like the idea for your addon, it's something I do manually personally, and don't feel the need for an addon because I scout other things by targeting people anyways.

On to why I'm posting: Just making a suggestion for a feature. People can easily trick the addon with BoK, Fort, and Commanding Shout (and if Blood Pact is EVER seen in arena), so my suggestion is to make the addon check buffs (they can do that right? Based on other addons they must) and adjust the health value you inputted per buff. Assume unimproved for all of them I'd guess. (I.E. 23000 is your input value. But fort adds ~1550 health unimproved I believe, so its looking for 24550 instead).

Per class support could also be useful. Plate Wearers in PvE gear tend to have some more health than others, along with more base.

Just trying to be helpful, sorry if the first part came out a little mean. It's just a personal opinion on how I like to play, but there are games that method fails because I only get a split second to check people. I'm not bashing the addon, I like it a lot, kinda upset I didn't think of it =P.

I have two questions:

1) Would this work for battlegrounds? (Like, say, if I'm facing a clump of enemies at Lumber Mill, would the addon be able to detect the enemies in the immediate area who are in PVE gear?)
2) Would there be a possible way to make it output to party/ private channels?
I'm planning on getting support for BGs put in for 2.0, as soon as I figure out what I need to check. As for party/private channels, party is already supported in 1.1, as well as guild, say, and officer. I'll see about adding support for other channels as well.
