DispelCDTracker

Version: 1.0.9
by: Cowmonster [More]

With the new 8 second CD on successful dispel it may become difficult for groups with multiple dispellers to keep track of whose dispel has been used and who can still do it, so I create a small timer bar list to tell you exactly that.

The addon has a filter to restrict classes/specs that may have a dispel ability, but you aren't interested in seeing them. The default filter keeps you from seeing Guardian (tank) Druid dispels as they have to leave form to use it.

Because of the filtering system and the need to know what spec a person is, people will be added to your list in two ways. When they use a dispel and they are not already in your list or when you mouseover them to discover their specialization.

All settings that are user configurable are available in-game via a slash command (/dcdt).

/dcdt - Show a list of possible options.
/dcdt lock - Toggle hiding the header and locking the bars in place.
/dcdt width # - Set the width of the bars to a number from 100 to 400.
/dcdt height # - Set the height of the bars to a number from 12 to 32.
/dcdt filter class spec - Add/Remove a particular class and spec in the filter.

Please note that a class is required (spec is optional) and must exist in the list of known classes/specs. A Warrior can not be filtered since the addon does not have a known dispel ability for warriors, but it does for an arcane mage.

The addon also does not recognize partial class/spec names or nicknames. You can filter a druid balance, but you can not filter a 'boomy', 'moonkin', 'boomkin', 'critchicken', 'thunderchicken', etc.

I will be updating the addon as I find out about more dispels that a person may want to track for a raid/party.

The addon also saves anything that qualifies as a dispel in a special place in your SavedVariables folder in the DispelCDTracker.lua file. For those that are familiar with how variables are saved and can locate the DispelCDTrackerDB.unknown table in your DispelCDTracker.lua SavedVariables file, if you see an unknown that you feel should be tracked, please, let me me know via a pm or comment.

Included in the addon folder.

....And now I will be able to kick their asses out of my team MUWAHAHAHAH

Seriously: You know this is the only addon anywhere who track the dispel cd?

But It could be better:
  • When you lock the addon, and then you log out, when you came in the addon is unlocked
  • It could be awesome to track how many times someone actually dispelled. Like in the right of the bars, or something like that.
    Skada can show how many debuffs someone dispelled, but not the times he actually did it.
    Maybe with a right-click->reset counter?
  • It could be awesome too if you could be able to select to don't track dps dispel or offensive dispel...or even better be able to select what type to track (like a select box where I can select Healers and Offensive, but unselect defensive dps dispel)
Okay the lock thing was a big oversight on my part. That should be fixed in the next version.

I considered tracking number of dispels, but figured so many people have addons like recount and skada that can track things like that already that it wouldn't be real useful to have another addon doing it. I'll consider adding a count for dispels / casts to the right of the bars.

Tracking of dispels of buffs on enemies and dispels of debuffs on friendly targets separately would be an advancement on the filtering system. I'll work on that as well. Right now you can filter out dps by filtering specific classes and/or specs. The default is to filter out druid tanks, but with the slash command you can change the filtering.

I'll work on your requests.

Thanks for the info.
Cat and bear druids also have the same Remove Corruption as moonkins, however for bear druids I would advise either not including them at all or at least defaulting them to "disabled", if that's within the scope of the add-on. Casting the spell shifts you out of forms - for cats that's just a DPS loss, but for bears that's potentially raid wipe.
Thanks for the info and a very good point.

When I turn my attention to the asthetics (hopefully very soon) can you be more specific about the sizing options?

width of bars? height of bars? anything else?

I am thinking, for the moment at least, about just some simple slash command options

/dcdt lock (toggle the lock/hiding anchor)
/dcdt width # (set bar width to #)
/dcdt height # (set bar height to #)
/dcdt reset (put everything back to the way it was originally incase someone sets a bad size value or something)

This all sound about right to you?

Still in the very early alpha stage right now. Finding lots of problems with sorting bars in raid groups. As soon as I get that all working then I'll work on asthetics.
