MyThreat  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.6.5
by: Brimm [More]
MyThreat is a simple compact threat information frame containing only the most essential data. It is designed to be a summary of the current threat situation - basically "how does threat relate to me RIGHT NOW".

Threat is automatically adjusted for Mirror Image and Fade.

There are three modes of operation:
  • Standard mode:
    • Main use: Default behavior. Shows your threat relative to the person who currently has aggro on your target.
    • The percentage value represents your threat relative to the current tank's threat.
    • The threat difference represents the difference between your threat and the current tank's threat.
    • The name is that of the current target's tank.
  • Focus mode
    • Main use: On fights with multiple tanks where the DPSers need to stay below all of them (ex: Gruul, Void Reaver, Gurtogg, Eredar Twins).
    • The percentage value represents your threat relative to the person on the focus list with the lowest threat.
    • The threat difference represents the difference between your threat and the person on the focus list with the lowest threat.
    • The name is that of the person on the focus list with the lowest threat.
    • Enabled via a slash command ("/myt focus set TankA,TankB" to set, "/myt focus" to clear).
    • Cleared via a slash command ("/myt focus clear").
    • Set to automatically adjust to the raid's Main Tanksm as set via the Blizzard raid UI ("/myt focus tanks").
  • Tank mode:
    • Main use: Being able to see who is about to surpass you on threat and determine rapidly your thread lead relative to the other raid members.
    • The percentage value represents the person with the 2nd highest threat's relative threat compared to yours.
    • The threat difference represents your lead on the 2nd highest person on the threat list.
    • The name is that of the 2nd highest person on the threat list.
    • Enabled via the interface options or a slash command.

The values are color coded based on level of danger of pulling threat. All values (absolute threshold, relative threshold, alpha) for threat levels can be customized via a slash command (/mythreat or /myt) or the Interface->AddOns menu.

All threat information is obtained via the WoW Threat API. This AddOn is not meant as a replacement to Omen but rather as a supplement, allowing you to have summary information on your current threat situation at a glance while ignoring that of others.
1.6.5:
-Increased the maximum threat thresholds to 200,000 (up from 50,000).
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.6.4:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.6.1:

1.4:
-Threat is now adjusted when Fade and Mirror Image is in effect (enabled/disabled via interface options).

------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.3:
-Moved from Threat-2.0 to the WoWAPI for threat information.
-Changed standard mode to always compare to current tank rather than current target.
-Added profile support to the addon interface options.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.2:
-Added a new "tank mode" that can be enabled via the options.
-Added a new "focus mode" that can be set and cleared via a slash command.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.0:
-Initial release.

Good catch! That one went completely under the radar...

I've also changed the event as you suggested and did a bit of testing and it appears to work fine. I've pushed a new version live and we'll see if there are any adverse effects

Thanks!

The latest patch broke some functionality, like the threat adjust for Mirror Images, the reason is that you're difining locals on each GetThreat call and those locals' life span is only in the loop/if statement;

Also an improvement would be to switch from COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED to UNIT_THREAT_LIST_UPDATE instead, which procs only when something interesting happens to threat rather than every time some target related event fires.

That is actually a great idea that fits in the spirit of this addon (adding cues for vital information pertaining to YOU).

I'll see about adding it in the next version (probably sometime within a month or two).

Hi and thanks for great mod!

I've used this mod for a long time also. Omen is good, but it displays too much information for me to care.

One feature I would like to request is to add an audio alert whenever my threat exceeds 90% or 100%, because while the addon is visually compact, in raids it can easily be lost in the sea of flashes and bangs on my screen. pretty please

Glad to hear you enjoy it! If you have any suggestions on how to make it better (though keep in mind that there likely won't any more major features - it's simple and that's the way I want to keep it) feel free to either post them here or use my portal and submit a feature request

I've used this mod since it first appeared, and I recommend it to everyone. I just wanted to drop you a line and say "thanks" for all your hard work.

If you accidentally turned on tank mode, your display would always be red any time you are not tanking. This is most likely your problem.

If not, you can configure the thresholds in the configuration screen, both relative (% of tank's threat) and absolute (difference between tank's threat and yourself).

Default values are:
-Red: 95% or 1000 threat
-Orange: 90% or 2500 threat
-Yellow: 85% or 5000 threat
-Green: anything else

I admit that the default values are somewhat low, they were set in TBC and I haven't touched them since. I'll likely tweak them a bit in the next update to reflect the damage output in LK.

Keep in mind, however, that activating tank more essentially "flips" those values around, meaning that if the 2nd highest on the threat list has 95% or more of your threat (or 1000 less threat than you), it'll be red; if the 2nd highest on the threat list is between 90 and 95% it'll be orange, etc.

Colors

I really like this addon, but the colors do not seem to change for me. I have tried the default settings and changing them, but the color on the display is always red, no matter how much threat I have.

I'm playing a Warlock and have only tested it solo and in 5 mans so far. Warlock pets would not cause this problem would they?

Can you be more specific?

You position the addon in a specific area using test mode and lock, but when you have tank mode enabled, it shows nothing when you are tanking in a group?

Test mode works and so does the option to reposition it. but after that locking it back in place where i put it. I see nothing of it. It doesn't pop up at all. I dunno if htis is a issue with the new omen version or this addon but it's something i want'ed to bring to your attention.

since it started working for me it hasn't stopped. It may have just been a random display glitch for me. Possibly an interaction with a separate addon that wasn't working at the time like xperl or something.

I spent a few hours running heroics today and no issues whatsoever. I'll be raiding on Monday and I'll be able to check it out in a raid context if it has issues there.

I did a bit of investigating last night and couldn't find anything immediately wrong with the addon. I'll try to take a deeper look into this asap but probably won't be able to log in for any decent amount of time before Sunday.

It started working for me randomly halfway through a naxx 10 run, hasn't been working in heroics though.
