ShamanChi

Version: 6.0.3.4
by: Phanx [More]

Displays your Maelstrom Weapon or Lightning Shield stacks using the monk Chi frame.

For elemenal shamans' Lightning Shield, each Chi orb represents 3 charges, since there are only 5 orbs to show 15 charges. Once you get the Improved Lighting Shield "perk" in WoD, each orb represents 4 charges.

When you have a full stack of your buff, the orbs will spin; this animation is part of the default UI, but for some reason Blizzard doesn't currently use it for monks. To disable this animation, use the "/shamanchi spin" command. There are currently no other options.

If you are not using the default unit frames, this addon probably won't work for you.

Compatible with all locales. Translated into English, Deutsch, and Español.

Inspired by this forum thread.

Post a comment. If you are reporting a bug, please include detailed instructions I can follow to reproduce the bug myself, whether or not it still happens when all other addons are disabled, and the exact text of the first related error message (if any) from Bugger.

Re: Re: Re: Lightning Shield

Might just be best to round the last orb up, then... eg. 17+ counts as full.

I don't play Elemental main spec so I can't really say for sure. According to Icy Veins (http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/element...owns-abilities) the best time to fulminate is at 17 stacks so that you won't waste charges by generating some while you are at 20.

Maybe you could do this:

1 orb = 16 stacks,
2 orbs = 17 stacks,
3 orbs = 18 stacks,
4 orbs = 19 stacks,
5 orbs = 20 stacks

But maybe that would be too unintuitive.

I am not actually using this addon (sorry!) I just happened to thoroughly derail myself while looking for a totem bar in the Shaman specific addons section. (And now I am writing one since the ones which are here are bloated or out of date)

Of course it does... updating now.

Lightning Shield

Just so that you know, lightning shield charges stack to 20 charges for elemental shamans once you reach level 92 as a result of the Draenor levelling perk.

Spell Info: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=157774

P.S.: Phanx your addons are great!

Divide by 3? I don't know, I don't play elemental (other than one extremely boring raid back in WotLK after which I have no desire to ever try it again) and don't even actually use this addon... if you have any ideas, feel free to share them.
