HotCandy  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.7.1
by: Nevcairiel [More]
HotCandy is a Heal-over-Time tracker designed for Druids, but it also supports other healing classes with HoTs, like Renew of Priests, or Riptide of Shamans.

HotCandy was designed to be very simple and easy to use, with only a handful of options to customize the style of the bars. However its core is powerful and supports all known set bonuses and talents that increase the length of your HoTs.

HotCandy is driven by the CombatLog events and the cast events, those two in tandem provide it with all the information it needs to provide proper information about all your active HoTs.

You can access the HotCandy configuration through the Blizzard Interface AddOns Options.

This addon is clutch for my druid and priest, simple and does exactly what I want.

I've been using this for months and have found it to be extremely helpful.

Just curious, would it be possible to show the hots cast by other players in the party and raid?

In theory it would, i guess, but with a fair amount if inaccuracy due to the way the spell cast messages work.

And since HoTs stack now, i didnt see a real point in investigating that any further

It's nice to see if everyone is stacking hots like they should in certain situations. For example ... if there are two priests on the raid assigned to "hotting", I'd like to see if there are two hots on the MT. *shrugs* Was just wondering.

Gift of the Naaru?

I've just installed HotCandy. I like it thus far, though really can't contribute much further comment until I start using it in instances. One thing I did notice - it does not recognize the Draenei racial spell "Gift of the Naaru" as a HoT. That would be a wonderful addition to the AddOn!

<edit>One of my guild member said that it seemed like one should be able to re-cast the spell on that target by clicking the bar. Maybe an idea for the next version?</edit>

Regards,

Re: Re: Gift of the Naaru?

I'm wondering if you'll support the other bar textures. I'm using NotSteel on my other Ace bars.

As for clicking bars... How does Healbot manage it? It would be great to have a refresh spell ability by clicking directly on the bar of an expiring timer.

How does Healbot manage it?
The key thing is that Healbot (and other similar mods) have static displays, meaning, the people represented by the bar never changes. If Person_A is the first person in the Healbot list, he will ALWAYS be the first person. For this mod, the bars are constantly changing. Dynamic data is not capable of allowing decisions to be made. This change was intentional and is what broke mods like Decursive.

height?

awesome mod, fits right in with what i already have, but u may want to have a height adjustment or scaling options or something.

right now they're just really short bars that look funny with such a large height in comparison ^^"

And possibly even an alpha option, cus i have them right in the midle of my screen so i don't miss it.

edit: and maybe centre alligning the words? cus the words get cut off if the bars become too short, but there's still plenty of room to the left of the words. you'll see what I mean when u try a width of 80 or so.

It's a good addon, but not very configurable. I don't like how there's a huge space between the spell icon and the timer. All the empty spaces makes it hard to make the bar smaller. An option to configure font and bar sizes would also be nice.

Most important remains however: Please make the text in the bar more compact.

i like it, altho you should add lifebloom stacks so you can see how many stacks you have instead of just "lifebloom". Also you should have some sort of "focus" frame where you can set the focus on say a maintank and you can always see his lifebloom stacks on a seperate bar.
Also if you swiftmend a rejuv or regrowth then it should get removed from the bar !

I like the changes you have made to this lately, but there's still one thing missing that keeps me from using this which would otherwise be a great addon: Lifebloom stacking only shows when you cast it on yourself. There's no Lifebloom stack count on other targets. Personally, I find this too important to neglect.

Why not just use Classtimers to show these since that shows all the DoTs etc?
