Basic Threat Bar
Version: 5.10
by: Shackleford [More]
A basic customizable threat bar.
  • Based off of my plugins ThreatFu/LDB-Threat, this is a stand alone bar type display.
  • Displays your current threat 0-100% at 100% you pull aggro no matter if melee or ranged.
  • When you have aggro and you have a pet or are in a group the bar will begin to fill again displaying your threat lead from the next highest unit.
  • Bar colors based upon your current threat status.
  • Displays the tank name or if you have aggro displays the name of the next highest unit.
  • Has some support for fade, mirror image, hand of salvation and retreat (monk glyph) threat.
  • Has support for shared media fonts and textures.
  • Bar can fill horizontally or vertically.

*Please submit bug reports or feature requests here
*This addon needs translators. If you would like to contribute to translating, please do so here


Options are available in the blizzard options pane or you can access them by typing "/btb".
Slash command "/btb hide" will hide the bar out of combat, "/btb show" will leave it visible and allow for positioning.

Thanks for the update!

Edit: Why are some classes names shown in class colour (e.g. Paladin) and some are just gray? even on your screenshot...
Woud be very nice if they were all class coloured

Ya, it works fine on my end. Are you possibly playing on something other than a US client?

Edit: try latest version.

I think the ability for the addon to be useful at all for certain classes is more important than a bit more memory usage. Just IMHO, of course. Without this feature, this addon is useless for me. I am aware that this can be only done through Combat Log parsing.

Almost Perfect

This is almost exactly what I was looking for. The one feature that would make it a perfect fit is the ability to make the bar vertical (fill bottom to top). Any chance of that happening?

I play both a shadow priest and mage and this is something I have been wanting to add as it just wasn't an easy thing to do. I was simply stating why most threat addons don't have this feature. It's not so much memory but the complexity of adding it and the additional CPU usage it uses. I have been able to get a functioning version with this implemented. If you want to try out what I've been working on you can download the latest alpha from curseforge http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/bas...eat-bar/files/.

Don't have any plans for it at this time.

Hello,

I want to remove any font from showing up on this bar, how can I accomplish this? I.e. I just want the bar to fill up/down and change colors at different thresholds, but never show any type of font.

That's been on my to-do list and is in the latest alpha file on Curse. I'm currently working on some changes for the next release.

EDIT: With version 5.04 you can hide the text by selecting none from the positioning drop down.

color problem

What about threat color options?
I want to use a font on top of the bar but without outline. I can't use black because my background/border is black (if bar is empty you can't see the text) and I can't use white because the green of the Threat Bar is so bright that you can't read the text. It was ok untill v1.07 (i think) because the green was not so bright. Maybe a text shadow woud be enouth...

I have been thinking about adding options to change the bar colors just not sure when I'll get around to it.
