PerfectRaid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v50001-1.0.0
by: Cladhaire [More]
PerfectRaid is a whole new look on raid frames, giving you as much information as possible in an easily recognizable format that's easy to place. Show as much or as little as you're interested in, and completely customize using the each options editor.

Use /praid to open the configuration GUI.
  1. A preliminary frame editor is in game. It can be kind of complex at the moment, but it comes with a nice set of defaults for you to use.
  2. Added a pre-made buff dropdown to the buff editor screen

The template supports them, yes. It would be the same release, if and when.

Please let me know how you progress! I've been meaning to remove the right box for some time now.

Also, Clad, could you consider adding an option to show unit tooltips at mouseover? Just like when you mouseover any other unit in the default UI. Would be neat.

"FW PI *3xLb R(2) *Rj *Rg PW:S"

If you added in timers (assuming one of my three suggestions, the 2-second tick mark), it becomes
"FW PI *3xLb''' R(2) *Rj'''''' *Rg''''''' PW:S"
I see no reason to add hot timers. That really should be left to another addon.

All this assumes that MotW is set to give a marker when Not present, and Thorns is set to never give a marker.

Saving 3 characters from the *'s might be worth it. I think it's something that needs to be seen in action before we can truly judge.

Is italics/underlining an option? [/b]
No, you can't alter the font in any way other than color.

Why is the default Quote text bolded? Really distracting.. (I know you don't control this lol)

Anyway..

I've been a raiding druid for about a year and a half now and have used Perfectraid since I first discovered it during Blackwing Lair runs. I want to first compliment you on a great mod and stress that it's quite simply the best mod for healers out there that I have tried.

That being said, your call for help with rolling lifeblooms has had me thinking for a week or so on what I think would be the best way to treat Lifeblooms from several druids. The truth is, the problem with perfectraid tracking Lifeblooms is not really registering how many we have stacked, considering most of us simply spam it 3 times on our target then continue to roll it. Whether we have 1 or 3 isn't as important as knowing that its on the target at all and that is where you could really make some changes.

I use a green colored L to track lifebloom and as it is now, I can't tell which are my lifeblooms and which belong to another. This often causes problems when two druids are healing one tank and you can't tell if that's his Lifebloom or yours. Added to this issue is swiftmend, which does not always pick your rejuvenation/regrowth and sometimes picks those of the other druid. This means that even though your target shows a rejuvenation and your hot timer is still counting your rejuvenation down, it has already been removed by the other Druid. So in the case that one druid's hots have dropped, the other druid can never really be positive that the one's that perfectraid are showing are his, which means recasting to be sure and more wasted mana.

What I would propose is to allow an option to pick two colors for every druid spell. One would track your own hots, and the other backup color would track any other druids spells. In the case of Lifeblooms, a simple (3) next to the lifebloom would be fine.

As someone else stated, most raiding tree druids are accustomed to using hot timers so I doubt there is much need to add these in. If this is a technical impossibility, well then, I've managed fine this far and will continue. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for the update.

Just something for the future with filtering. I should've though it through before posting the first time. You have all the filter as a long list, either strict and or strict or relationship. It'd be nice if it can be seperated into 2 categories - class and group. Filter by or within each category, and check by and across the 2 categories. (healer/mana go into class filtering).

For example, if I check "warrior, rogue, my group, group 3". With strict and, nothing ever gets checked, because it's impossible for someone to be warrior and rogue at the same time. With strict or, it checks for all warriors, all rogues, everyone in my group, and everyone in group 3. With a 2-tier check, it'd check every warrior or rogue that are either in my group or in group 3.

Strict and is far more powerful than strict or, since multiple filters can be set up for the or relationship (1 filter for warrior, 1 filter for rogue, etc). I think 2-tier filtering would allow for most desired filtering doable in 1 filter. Also, would it be possible to add "MyGroup" option for raid frames? the Party option seem to just poof my normal party frames.

Thank you again for making the change. Love your mod for how simple it is, and for how powerful it is.
