Installation and Configuration

Install Raven by copying its files into your WoW addons folder (or use your favorite addons update utility). Optional additional Raven-compatible modules can be installed to add support for spell rotations used by specific classes.

You can bring up a configuration panel by typing in "/raven" or clicking on Raven's minimap button. Raven also includes a Data Broker launcher that can be displayed by addons like ChocolateBar.

Raven includes detailed tooltips for most options in the configuration panel.

Getting Started

The quickest way to get started with Raven is to use the standard bar groups on the Setup tab of the configuration panel. Standard bar groups include (1) all player buffs, (2) short player buffs (lasting less than 2 minutes), (3) long player buffs (lasting at least 2 minutes, such as Mark of the Wild, Blessing of Kings, and other "raid" buffs), (4) debuffs on the player, (5) cooldowns on player spells and equipped trinkets, (6) buffs/debuffs cast by the player on the target, (7) buffs/debuffs cast by the player on the focus, (8) rune cooldowns (Death Knights only), and (9) notifications for conditions relevant to your class (e.g., missing poisons on rogue weapons). Select the standard bar groups you want (hint: you probably don't want all the player buff bar groups since that will result in duplicates) and click either the Create As Bars or Create As Icons button. This will create an anchor for each selected bar group near the center of your display that you can move by clicking and dragging.

When you mouse over an anchor you'll see a tooltip with shortcuts for changing the bar group's configuration and for showing test bars. You can lock and unlock the bar group anchors using buttons on the configuration panel Setup tab (locked anchors are hidden, unlocked anchors are visible). The Defaults tab lets you change the appearance of your bars with configuration options for bar dimensions, fonts and textures.

Using Bar Groups

Once you set up standard bar groups, timer bars or icons will be displayed for buffs, debuffs and cooldowns and, if you set up the Notifications group, warning bars or icons will be displayed for missing buffs and cleansable debuffs. Bars will be in a variety of colors since Raven includes preset colors for many class-specific spells to help distinguish them (with the exception of Long Buffs that are class-colored by default).

After using Raven a while, you will probably want to make some adjustments. Perhaps you don't like the default colors of the bars or you want to switch between bars and icons. Or maybe you want a dedicated bar group for the procs and cooldowns you monitor closely during combat.

At this point, it is necessary to understand that there are two types of bar groups: auto bar groups and custom bar groups. Auto bar groups are used to automatically display bars for buffs, debuffs and cooldowns. Most of the standard bar groups (all except Notifications) are pre-configured auto bar groups. Custom bar groups allow you to manually configure bars for a mix of buffs, debuffs, cooldowns and notifications. Typically, custom bar groups are used to present spell rotations and buff/cleansing reminders.

Auto Bar Groups

Open the configuration panel and click on the Bar Groups tab. Using the pull-down menu near the top, select any existing standard bar group (except Notifications) or create a new auto bar group by clicking on the New Auto Group button. A second set of tabs appears that lets you configure the selected bar group.

You use the Buffs, Debuffs, and Cooldowns tabs to specify what kinds of bars to display (and which ones to filter out). These tabs lets you control how the bar group is populated as new buffs, debuffs and cooldowns are detected. For buffs and debuffs, you specify who the action must be on and who it must be cast by. For cooldowns, you specify what kinds of cooldowns to detect. When new buffs, debuffs and cooldowns are detected that match the criteria, bars for them are automatically displayed.

Auto bar groups have filter lists to let you suppress showing unwanted bars. Both black lists (i.e., don't show if on the list) and white lists (i.e., only show if on the list) are supported. You can manage filter lists on the Buff, Debuff and Cooldown tabs.

Custom Bar Groups

While the standard bar groups provide an easy way to get started, you might also want to set up bar groups that contain just the bars you care about during combat. For example, to support your feral druid's DPS rotation you might want bars for the Savage Roar buff on the player, Mangle, Rake and Rip debuffs on the target, and Tiger's Fury and Berserk cooldowns.

To create a new custom bar group, open the Raven configuration panel, select the Bar Groups tab, then click on New Custom Group and enter a name (e.g., "Combat Bars"). This will bring up a new, empty bar group. To add bars, select the Custom Bars tab and click the New button.

When you click the New button, the configuration panel is put into bar creation mode (you won't be able to access other options until you click either Okay or Cancel at the bottom of the scrollable options). Select a bar type (e.g., buff, debuff, cooldown) and then appropriate options. For example, when you select Buff, you can then select the source of actions (i.e., class, pet, racial, other) and you are presented with a list of available buff actions (or, in the case of "other", a text entry box for entering a spell name). Select actions within that list that you want bars for (All On and All Off buttons are provided for convenience). Pay particular attention to correctly setting who the action is on and who it is cast by. Click Okay to finishing adding the bars (they are now included in the list of bars and can be customized by clicking on them and setting their associated options). You can repeat the bar creation process by clicking New again to add any mix of bar types.

The Custom Bars tab also lets you make changes to bars after they have been added. Select any individual bar to bring up configuration options that let you adjust its color, label text, special effects, and other properties. You can toggle enable to disable the bar.

More Customization

You can further customize bar groups using configuration settings in the General, Layout, Appearance, and Timer Options tabs. The following is a brief description of what each tab supports (mouse over options for explanatory tooltips).

The General tab provides options to enable/disable the entire bar group, rename the bar group, specify how bars are sorted, conditionally show/hide the bar group, and adjust settings for mouse clicks, tooltips, and special effects (e.g., pulsing icons, flashing on expiration).

The Layout and Appearance tabs let you modify the look of the selected bar group. You can adjust the bar group's configuration and the direction that bars grow from the anchor. You can select alternate coloring schemes. You can adjust dimensions, fonts and textures (after overriding defaults set on the Defaults tab). You can turn on and off particular characteristics (icon, colored bar, spark, label, etc.) and change their relative positions. If you prefer icon-based interfaces, Raven includes configurations featuring large icons with optional mini-bars. You can also attach bar groups to each other to facilitate alignment (including the ability to attach to a bar group's last bar so a stack of bar groups can expand and shrink as needed). Play around some and check out the range of possible designs (hint: you can shift-left-click on a bar group anchor to show test bars).

The Timer Options tab lets you adjust settings related to bar duration and time left. You can set all bars in a group to have a uniform duration (this makes it easy to compare how much time is left on bars with similar, but slightly different, durations). You can specify whether to show bars with unlimited duration (e.g., paladin auras). You can filter bars based on their durations and amount of time left (this is how the standard bar groups separate short buffs from long buffs).

Bar groups can have background panels and borders. Set them up in the Defaults tab to show them for all bar groups or in the Appearance tab for individual bar groups. You can enable a background panel with texture, color, and size (size is specified as padding in pixels from the bar group's bars and icons). You can enable a background border separately with a border design, color, edge size, and inset (inset helps merge panel and border correctly).

Multi-Target Buff and Debuff Tracking

Raven includes multi-target buff and debuff tracking similar to other DoT and HoT timer addons. The Setup tab now includes Buff Tracker and Debuff Tracker standard bar groups. These bar groups will group timer bars for buffs or debuffs that you cast on each target and, by default, will show a header with the target name above its associated timer bars. Optionally, you can include the target name in the timer bar labels instead of showing headers (set Hide Headers on the General tab for the bar group). Use black list and white list filtering capabilities in these bar groups to customize them (e.g., you can make a Beacon of Light tracker by creating a HoT timer bar group with only that spell in its white list). You might want to stick with bar-oriented configurations for these since the headers (which include raid target icons and indicate current target, focus or mouseover unit) are currently designed to work best as bars.

Conditions

Raven monitors a variety of events during play and can display notifications when certain conditions are met. While somewhat complex to set up, conditions are quite powerful and can help with spell rotations, decursing, etc. Raven includes default conditions for each class for basics like making sure you have class-specific buffs during combat.

Conditions can be used in Raven to trigger notifications and to control whether or not bar groups are visible. Generally speaking, once you set up a condition you will want to set up a notification bar to show you when the condition is true. When you configure the Notifications standard bar group on the Setup tab, you automatically get notifications for your configured conditions.

Conditions are configured in Raven under the Conditions tab. To get a feel for setting up conditions, take a minute to look at the default conditions for your class. Select one of the conditions using the pull-down menu near the top. A second set of two tabs (General, Tests) appears with options for configuring the selected condition.

The Tests tab has a summary of settings at the top and a list of available tests below. There are tests for checking status of the player, target and focus, tests for checking for combinations of buffs and defuffs, and tests for checking if spells or items are ready to be used. Selecting a test brings up options specific to that test. For example, the Player Status test lets you check if you are in combat, resting, have more than a certain percentage of your health, how many combo points you have, etc.

All the tests you enable must be true for the overall condition to evaluate to true (the summary at the top is intended to help visualize how the tests combine). You can also add dependencies between conditions that can be helpful for factoring out common tests (e.g., a condition to see if you are in cat form and in combat might be a dependency for other conditions defining a druid's feral spell rotation).

The General tab for each condition allows you to enable/disable the condition and specify if the condition is suitable for triggering a notification. You can also associate a spell with a condition (the spell's icon and color are used to customize notifications based on the condition).

Cancelling Buffs

Raven includes support for cancelling buffs. When out of combat, you simply right-click the icon on any player buff bar to cancel the buff (this works for shaman weapon enchants and rogue poisons too). For cancelling buffs in combat, Raven includes an "in-combat" bar that you set up while out of combat with a list of player buffs that you want to be able to cancel in combat (you may need to do reload the UI after setting up the "in-combat" bar before using the buttons). When one of these buffs becomes active in combat, its icon pulses into place on the "in-combat" bar and you can right-click it to cancel the buff.

Support for Runes and Totems

Raven includes special bar groups for Death Knight and Shaman classes. These show up as the Runes and Totems standard bar groups on the Setup tab. The Runes bar group replaces the Blizzard runes default UI and displays cooldown timer bars for all your runes. The Totems bar group tracks currently active totems and show a placeholder ready bar for each empty totem slot. You can right-click on a totem icon to destroy a totem. You can disable the placeholder bars by turning off Show If Unlimited Duration.

Multiple Characters

Raven is designed to simplify configuration across multiple characters. This is required because each class may make quite different use of timer bars (e.g., some depend on tracking cooldowns while others watch for debuffs to expire on the target). In the Profiles tab, Raven includes the profile options common to Ace3-based addons and, by default, creates a new profile for each character.

In addition to using profiles, Raven shares a variety of settings across characters. This can result in some confusion since it works differently than in other addons (but can simplify configuring Raven if you play several different classes). First, the appearance options on the Defaults tab (dimensions, fonts, textures) apply to all profiles (they can be overridden as needed in any bar group, of course). Second, almost all bar group settings (the primary exception being the actual bars associated with custom groups) are linked between bar groups of the same name in all profiles that have Link Settings enabled (note that Link Settings is no longer enabled by default for standard bar groups on the Setup tab). Third, filter lists are linked by default between auto bar groups of the same name in all profiles, simplifying dealing with unwanted buff, debuff and cooldown bars.

Final Words

I hope you enjoy using Raven for all your buff, debuff and cooldown needs! Questions and comments are always welcome.

Hey, I love this addon. It's very powerful and I really appreciate the frankly lavish amount of effort you've put into it. So, thank you, for starters.

Now on to the griping (lol).

In Icon mode, the Clock effect for Cooldowns is counter-intuitive for me: it begins fully-lit-up, then darkens until the cooldown is over. If you have "Show when ready" enabled, you end up with a bright icon that slowly becomes dark then becomes bright again visually confusing.

The Blizzard default UI grays out a spell on cooldown, then slowly refills the icon, from dark back to light.

Any chance of allowing us to choose which style the Clock uses filling bright to dark, or filling dark to bright?

If you want the sounds to play for only selected debuffs (e.g., the ones you apply to the target yourself) then first define which sound you want for each debuff spell on the Spells tab (under Colors and Labels you enter the Spell Name and then select a Spell Sound). Second, select which bar group you have the debuffs showing in (e.g., the standard bar group named Target will show your debuffs on the target). Third, on the General tab for the bar group, enable Finish Spell Sound.

There are numerous alternatives for setting up sounds. For example, under Special Effects you can specify sounds to play before the buff/debuff actually expires by a specified amount of time. And you can play sounds for any buff or debuff that expires in the bar group (not just the ones set up on the Spells tab). And, for custom bar groups, you have even finer control of special effects for each individual bar. Hopefully, though, this will get you started.

I will look into it when I get a chance.

Update: This is included in the latest build r221, which is currently available for testing on the curseforge project page.

I checked both of those settings, but they didn't fix the exact issue I am having. I should have stated my issue instead of generalizing it. I want to be able to see the mount buff a person gets when they are mounted. It isn't a big issue as I can just whisper them if I am curious enough.

Thanks for the wonderful addon!

On the Buffs and Debuffs tabs you can change the Cast By setting from Player to Anyone. You may also need to set Show If Unlimited Duration on the Timer Options tab, if it isn't already set.

Did you post a message on the Curse thread about Masque and Raven? Ever since they changed the format of that site, it has had issues correctly displaying info. If that was you: check the Masque-related settings on the Defaults tab near the bottom and try both alternatives for coloring borders (if there are still issues try a different, known to be up-to-date skin such as Renaitre's, which I use myself, just to make sure it works at all for you).

No stance buff icons?

I'm just getting started with the bars, trying to replace the complex dotimer setup I've had for years. Unfortunately the first thing I've created is just a default all buffs on me bar, and it does not show my stances. Nor can I seem to find any reason in the options as to why that might be happening. Any ideas? I've just created a buffs icon bar with no tweaking yet. The specialty groups aren't even started.

On a separate note, dotimer would give an option to leave a shadow bar in place of the recently faded buff for xx seconds. That made it very easy to track prayer of mending or hots, or see what you just needed to refresh. I don't see that as an option here. Would you consider it?

Another suggestion from dotimer, a click combination to add a buff to the blacklist for an area. Much faster way to trim than laboriously going into the list and trying to type while grouping or soloing.

One more bit of functionality I miss already, on party buffs, instead of tooltip showing who has, I get a separate line for each recipient. Is there any way to consolidate? I can't seem to get it from notifications since the testee doesnt include party/raid members.

I do see many things raven handles that dotimer never could do and I'm sure I'll make the most of that functionality. I'm hoping to also use Raven to replace sexycooldowns and possibly even powerauras, but one step at a time. Keeping the needed buffs groupings has to come first.

Is it possible to get abbreviated versions of labels on the buff bars? So as to have "MotW" instead of "Mark of the Wild", so that the bars can be made much shorter.

You can enter custom labels for specific spells on the Spells tab.

There is no built-in method for doing this in general, given that there are so many different possible approaches to shortening names, not to mention the challenges with localization.

One issue I seem to be having is Raven not recognizing a 2nd instance of the Landslide weapon enchant proc. The bar will only ever show the landslide with the highest duration left when there is definitely 2 different buffs giving +2k ap total.

Stacks do show on other buffs such as Combat Readiness, it does distinguish between the two different Hemorrhage debuffs with the same name and it does show two different poison enchants even with the same poison on two identical weapons.. but somethings amiss with 2 separate Landslides. I tested with two older weapons that have Berserking on them and got the same results.

This is a known issue. I have never figured out a way to tell the difference between the two weapon procs from the info I get from Blizzard. I may look at this again once 4.3 settles down.

Raven doesn't support treating stances as buffs. Since I always saw them as highlighted action buttons, it didn't seem necessary.

Raven doesn't provide the "shadow" bars that fade away. This is difficult to do given how the graphics library is implemented.

Originally Raven did include a click combo to blacklist a buff. It caused lots of confusion for people who accidentally blacklisted buffs (not that the click combo was particularly easy to hit by mistake but apparently people use strange modifier key sequences in macros). In any case, this feature was removed when I added the workaround to allow right-click cancelling buffs out-of-combat because of technical details involving how key clicks are processed.

I will think about the party buffs option a bit more. As a healer, I run a raid frame setup that shows me when my castable party buff (e.g., MoTW) is missing from a party/raid member. Raven does not monitor buffs/debuffs/cooldowns on party/raid members currently so it would be a significant change to add that capability.

For the stances, blink, but I'll find a workaround. For the phantom bars, hmm will have to see what I can come up with. That was really helpful when juggling 3-4 regens. For the click combo DRAT! Granted in the end the setup will get customized just the same, its simply harder to do on the fly. For the party buffs, I had been under the impression I would see 23 separate counts of fortitude on the rest of the raid. Maybe I'm confused so... more testing!

And for the clear and thorough reply, thank you!

Ahh I see. Please do! I noticed today that it also effects debuffs. I had about 6 instances of a bleed debuff from a big pull while clearing Tempest Keep, but only one was on Ravens list.

Thanks much for your work on this addon!

Hey, absolutely love your mod

I would like to do something, but I am not sure if there is a way. If anyone could help me, it would be much appreciated. Here's what I want to do:

I'm a disc priest, and I'd like to make a bar tracking my Grace on targets. However, I don't want to see anything but Grace stacks x3. Any heal I do stacks 1 grace, so seeing all my Grace x1 stacks would be overwhelming; but I do want to track all my Grace x3 stacks (usually tanks and a dps).

That said, I've tried the buff tracker default, but while I can whitelist Grace, theres no way to set up a condition on that buff to only show it while its at 3 stacks. I've also tried a custom bar, but it doesnt look like I can do a buff tracker with a custom bar, unless I'm missing something.

If Raven can't do this, NP, ill just add it to grid, was just hoping to keep it off of there, so don't go out of your way to make this possible or search for a crazy solution. Thanks!!

While it is possible to do this just on the target with a custom bar group and a condition specifically to test for Grace x3, I don't see any way for Raven to do it across multiple targets. Adding it to Grid is probably your best bet.
