infDampening

Version: 1.6
by: infin1te [More]

A tiny arena addon that adds a fourth line to the 'arena status text' that will display the current dampening percent.
That's the yellow text at the top/middle of your screen that shows time remaining and players alive.
It will only show if dampening is currently active.
Though the best description is to simply look at the included picture.

1.6
  • Update for legion (thanks Newdles for testing it for me.)

1.5
  • Update TOC for 6.2
  • No need for tooltip scanning anymore, can get the percent from the UnitAura return.
  • Changed the way the frame is anchored to hopefully eliminate a rare case where it would not position properly.

1.4
  • Update for 6.1

1.3
  • Fixed an issue introduced with 6.0 that can occur when you queue to another arena game without leaving your old one.

1.2
  • Update for 6.0

1.1
  • Altered the way the frame is managed, eliminates unnecessary recreation.

Hi,
I haven't had time to arena much of recent to fix it.
But according to the documented changes for 7.0 I think that if you go to line 57 and change:
Code:
local _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, perc = UnitDebuff(unit, "Dampening")
to
Code:
local _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, perc = UnitDebuff(unit, "Dampening")
it should work, they apparently added two new returns to UnitAura(Buff/Debuff).
Please let me know if it does indeed work so I can update the addon here.
Thanks so much! I've confirmed that the fix worked beautifully.

As an added bonus, dampening got to literally 100% in a 2s game at 2200 mmr after my dps died and I killed their dps, making it healer vs. healer. I could then use infDampening to see exactly when my heals would be completely useless at a glance. 100%! I'd never even seen that. For the record, I won as resto shaman vs. mistweaver monk because for whatever reason, he wasn't detoxing my flame shock.

Anyway to code it so that it goes to the right spot always?
Hey, will look into it, about time for an update regardless.

Good catch, sorted it out.
Cool. Very fast fixing on your side!
