xanWorldPVPTimers
Version: v1.5
by: Xruptor [More]
This addon provides you with tiny timer frames for Blizzards world PVP areas. This includes Wintergrasp and Tol Barad. There are slash commands to disable the ones you don't want to see. You can also toggle the background on or off if you don't want to see it.

The addon now supports displaying which faction controls the battleground. It will also communicate with others whom have this addon installed to get the proper and correct faction control data when requested. (Restricted to Guild, Party, Raid).

NOTE: This is NOT a Databroker (LibDataBroker) addon. It provides it's own frames for the timers.

To Move the frames:
  • Hold <Shift> and drag the frames around your screen.
  • The addon will automatically remember the position and restore it each time you login.

Slash Commands:
  • /xwpt reset - resets the frame positions
  • /xwpt bg - toggles the background (ON/OFF)
  • /xwpt wg - Show or hide the Wintergrasp frame (ON/OFF)
  • /xwpt tb - Show or hide the Tol Barad frame (ON/OFF)
  • /xwpt scale # -changes the scale of the frames.
    NOTE: You really should use small numbers for setting the scale!
    Example: 0.8, 1.4, 1.7, 2.6, 2.1, etc...

Perfect WG/TB timer. Has all the options and minimalism needed. Goes perfect with my UI too! (RealUI).

Keep up the awesome work!

Thanks I'm glad you liked them. The majority of my mods are very small and minimalistic.

I also have a feature request... to show which faction controls the pvp ground at the moment you can color code the timer with blue or red.

or you can use an indicator like the faction symbol to the right of the timer.

Could you add this?

Sadly there is no real easy way to do this. Blizzard has made it so you can't grade the data that involves knowing whom has what control point without ACTUALLY being in the zone.

The only real way to do this would be to make a communication channel using chat and having the addon communicate with people whom have it installed as well. That way if someone enters a PVP zone it will transmit to everyone.

I'm not really going to go out of my way to do a communication portion of the mod to do that. Until Blizzard makes some API that allows us to see capture points, I doubt I will ever add it.

I have a new features suggestion, would it be possible to add a keybind so that these windows can be toggled together by button press, or individually?

That would just add unnecessary code. What's wrong with the slash commands It's not like your going to be doing it often. The suggestion is a sound one mind you, I just don't see a point in implementing it.

I have another question about this fantastic addon. I was wondering if it would be possible for me to edit the .lua to announce in guild chat 15 minutes before TB starts, 10 minutes before TB starts, 5 minutes before TB starts, 1 minute before TB starts, and 30 seconds before TB starts... or just at 15 minutes.

Could you help me? (Personal edit)

In general it's not a bad idea. Yet, could you imagine how annoying it would be if everyone in the guild had this installed? Yeah I could implement a sort of spam feature but it wouldn't be perfect, especially if all of them will announce at the exact moment lol.

The only thing I can think of aside from that would be to make it so you can click on it the frame and it alert your guild of the current time.

request/suggest/w/e

hey, why don't you just combine and update wga (winter grasp advance) and tol'barad master.


WGA = 15min warning 10min warn 5min warn via "pain spike" sound
it also has guild announce

play sound option

when Tol'bard is over it promps you with a "yes or "no" if u wanna leave the group and a Quick raid drop option.

show faction option (so you know who has control of TB)


and "release when dead"

also, WGA has an option so that you can Auto leave BG which is nice

you can check Curse WGA has no intention of updating or adding anything he even told someone if you bla bla like to you can do it i dont care.

Tol'bard MAster addon when you right click you can "auto" que for tol'bard so @ 15min it auto ques you.



but ya this is what people want (u can check those addon forums ppl request it) if you think well why don't you write the addon since you know well truth is i don't know how to do all the coding so. but ya recently goh author gave me a chance im doin goh warlock class sounds/testing ect which is available now and its like perfect but not complete.



I'll just use wga till it doesn't work. i don't care if anyone ever does this i'm just tryin to help you out.



thank you for your efforts i'll definitely try it out. just remember you don't have to consider anything i say

I'll take a look at these addons and see what I can do. I can't promise you anything though

I'm in the process of doing a series of updates to this addon. Currently I've added faction controlled display to the addon. It also has a communication protocol support between folks whom have this addon installed. That way if one person has the correct data it will be transmitted when requested by others. Only works in Guild, Raid, Party. Sorry I'm not going to bother with whispers ;P

I'd like to change the font, outline the font, and change the font color. Is there a way I can do this through the lua file?
