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:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.4:
-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.

It's not showing up for me in 3.2, the addon starts, but the threat display doesn't show during battle. The test even works. Just no display.

I've been debating simply switching from DPS to tank mode based on if you're tanking the current target instead of making it a switch, likely with a different style so you can see at a glance if you're tanking the mob or not.

I don't expect to have the time to update the version shortly, but likely in a few weeks or a month I'll put out a new version with this feature.

Nice Addon! I am playing a feral druid and I have completely removed Omen after installing this.

One Feature Request:
I am switching from tank to melee DPS quite often, I would love it, when tank mode switching is done by changing stances/form/presences

You can open up the `MyThreat.xml` file, search for any instance of `<FontString` and add the attribute `outline="[...]"` where you replace `[...]` by one of the following: "NONE", "NORMAL", "THICK".

Alternatively, you can use the `SetFont` method to change the font type:

local fontFace, fontSize, _ = MyThreat_ThreatFrameThreatDiff:GetFont();
MyThreat_ThreatFrameThreatDiff:SetFont(fontFace, fontSize, "OUTLINE");

You can substitute "OUTLINE" in that last statement for "THICKOUTLINE".

The three FontString instances used in this addon are: `MyThreat_ThreatFrameThreatDiff`, `MyThreat_ThreatFrameThreatPercDiff`, `MyThreat_ThreatFrameThreatPlayerName`.

You can also open up MyThreat.lua at line 382 and change it there so it automatically sets the outline to the type you prefer.

Good luck!

Beta version is up with the new focus changes, feel free to pick it up and test it. Please post here with any bugs you may find. Please note that the current version is drycoded, since the servers are currently down. Any syntax/major errors will be corrected as soon as the servers come back up.

A most excellent addon, and one I use exclusively for my threat management. With the recent update to include Mirror Image correction, it's irreplaceable. Thanks so much!

Tank mode is a mode that, instead of comparing YOUR threat to the current tank's will compare YOUR threat to the highest other player in your group/raid on the mob's threat list. It's useful for tanks that wish to know how much of a threat lead they have.

If you want a uniform color you can set all the thresholds to 0 (this should default to a green color). As for the background, there are no plans to add this at this time. You could look into addons that are designed to add panes on your screen? I don't know any specific mod name but I know I've seen this before.

Few comments.

There is a field called "Tank Mode" when I saw that I thought "Ticking that probably enables tank mode, but what does that do" - pointing at it gets me a tool tip saying "This toggles tank mode" ... how about writing what it does.

Also, it would be nice if you could disable the colors (because it can be hard to see) and have chose a uniform background behind the numbers)

Would be a great update for it.
