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:
-Fixes for patch 4.0.1.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.6.3:
-Adjusted frame alpha to always be full during Mirror Image / Fade instead of falling back to the "safe" alpha value.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.6.2:
-Fixed a problem with threat adjustment during Mirror Images and Fade.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.6.1:
-Fixed global variable leakage.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.6:
-Added support for custom alpha transparency based on threat level.
-Increased the maximum absolute threat for any range to 50000 (up from 20000).
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.5.3:

-Updated version of Ace3 library to version 3.3.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.5.1:
-Updated TOC for WoW 3.1 patch.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.5:
-Revamped focus mode. /mythreat focus now has three options: set (to set a manual list, much like it worked previously), clear (which removes the current focus list) and tank, a new mode, that sets the focus list to mirror the raid's Main Tank list (as set by the default raid UI).
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.4:
-Threat is now adjusted when Fade and Mirror Image is in effect (enabled/disabled via interface options).
------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Fixed Focus mode.
-Optimized display update code.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.3.1:
-Changed the standard mode to hide when player is the one tanking target.
-Fixed an issue with threat range colors.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.1:
-No significant changes other than updating Threat-2.0 version.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.0:
-Initial release.

Hmm, sorry if I misunderstood how this addon is intended to behave.

On bosses it seems to work fine but on trash I got the following issue.
Omen shows my threat at lets say 7k, tank is at 10k, aggro gain at 13k (I'm ranged). But myThreat shows me a percentage of 250% (red).

As I dont have aggro at that point I tend to trust the information from Omen more. How can such a discrepancy be? I mean arent both addons just pulling their information from the same threat1.0 lib?

Thanks alot for clarification on this.

Question Anyone else ran into to this?

I installed myt on my Horde 'toon, and everything worked as advertised, logged in to one of my Alliance 'toons (same realm) and could not get myt to work. The window would load, could test, change profile...etc, but it just would not display any threat info while playing. Logged back into my Horde 'toon, works like a champ?!? So I blizted myt reinstalled and same issue..

You are correct, I believe it was Cartographer (I remember I was messing around with some of it's settings and suddenly I was in the MyThreat settings).

There is no "default Ace GUI". You can use additional addons like DeuceCommander (dropdown menu) or Niagara (window) to provide GUI access to configuration for addons that use Ace2 option tables. The Rock framework used by ckknight's addons (Cartographer, CowTip, FuBar, PitBull, etc) does include a GUI for configuring its addons, and has a compatibility layer to handle Ace2 addons' option tables. One of these is probably what you're thinking of.

At any rate, here are the basic slash commands to set it up:

"/myt lock" will unlock the window and you can position it (/myt lock again to lock the window in place).
"/myt test" will toggle test mode so you can see what it will look like when running.
Whatever you do, please don't bulk it up!!

If i have to type in a command to get to the same feature as a would be menu will provide, then so be it.. It's meant to be compact, let's keep it that way

Yea I had the same problem didn't do anything, the test mode doesn't do anything either. Just for kicks I installed the threat1.0 libs and it still didn't work. Would really like to see this addon function since I don't care about other raiders threat only my own compared to the tank.
