WatchOut  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.2
by: Killakhan [More]
Description
WatchOut is a very small and simple spell alerter addon designed for Arena.

Features/Usage
When someone is targeting you the class icon of the unit will appear on the screen. If someone tries to cast a cc or a spell on you a castbar will appear next to the icon showing the remaining time (see screenshots). The castbar will show regardless of who you are targeting making detecting cc's or spells cast on you extremely easy.

The only options available at the moment are through slash commands:
/wo lock - locks/unlocks the frame
/wo reset - resets bar position to the middle of the screen
type /wo for more info

Limitations
If someone is targeting you while casting a focus-cast spell on someone else it will appear as if the spell is being cast on you.
If someone is casting a focus-cast spell on you while targeting someone else you will not see the spell alert warning. This is unfortunately a limitation in Blizzards API and affects all spell alert addons.
Note that this addon will only work in arenas. The reason for that is because of similar limitations as described above.
The current version supports 2v2 and 3v3 brackets but not 5v5 (yet).

Only works in Arena? Another good idea shot to ****! When are you authors going to realize that not every PvPer does arena? Also, take note that even arena players do BGs.

Will check it

Sound's good.

Cheers for it.

Edit: Tested it a bit and it's really great The only problem is the focus issue that you described in the description

Ah, thank you! I was playing with the code yesterday and that clears a lot up. I don't think I saw arena4/5 in there...I haven't played a 5v5 yet but does that mean it's only working for 2s and 3s right now?

Is the reason it only works in arena because of an explicit line of code (and if so, how can I change it provided I have sufficient cpu power to run it everywhere) or is it an API limitation?
It's just an API limitation, Blizzard doesn't want you to know who the target of a spell is until it's cast, you can sorta get around it by checking who the casting unit is targeting and then check what spell is being cast which is how this addon more or less works. However that requires you to know the identifier of the casting unit, such as "target", "focus" or in this case "arena1/2/3".
