GridStatusSwiftmend

Version: 1.0.1
by: borlum [More]

Introduction
GridSwiftmend is a status plug-in for the Grid Unit Frames addon. It is specifically for restoration druids so they know exactly when and who to Swiftmend.

GridSwiftmend is ment to remind you when you have the ability ready and you can set threshold values for health and time left on the HoTs so you can get the most out of Swiftmending.

Setup
I would recommend that you use as a Border Status as they are very clear to spot in the Grid along with the center text (see image).

There are several ways you can tweak the settings. The most important setting is of course making the status visible in grid.

You are going to want to set the "Critical Health Threshold" setting also. If a unit goes below this amount of health and has a Regrowth or Rejuvenation spell on him (and your Swiftmend is ready) the status will activate. Citical Health Threshold is especially important if you use the Swiftmend Glyph since you then don't care about being mana efficient with your Swiftmends in quite the same way.

If you on the other hand don't have the Swiftmend Glyph then you will also be quite interested in the "Health Threshold" and "Time Threshold" settings. The say that if a unit is under a certain percentage health and has a Regrowth or Rejuvenation spell on him with less than the time specified left on it THEN the status will be shown.

Some choose to set the Time or Health Threshold (not the Critical one) to their min values if they use the Swiftmend glyph. That way only the Critical setting counts. But you should be OK using the default settings (thats what I do myself).

Recomendations
You are gonna need to have Grid installed. Also I STRONGLY RECOMMEND getting Clique which allows you to cast spells by clicking on the Grid Cells. And make big grid sells that are easy to hit.

GridStatusHoTs is also a great plug-in for Grid and I couldn't live without it. You can have the different corners of the Grid cells light up depending on which hots you have active on the unit.

GridLifebloom does some of the same stuff as GridStatusHoTs does. I urge you to check it out.

Another addon I strongly urge you to download is GridManaBars; It (as the name suggests) show mana bars in grid. (TIP: Set the bars at the bottom)

I also must recommend that you use the Swiftmend glyph (see above).

Also you should consider resizing the Grid frames to another shape (Rectangular) and turn Bar Orientation horizontal instead.

Bugs
If you encounter a bug please leave a comment with the LUA error message, or at least a detailed description of how to make the bug reappear.

GridStatusSwiftment Cataclysm update

Hi,

I have installed and tested the version posted on this site and it does not appear to work with the latest Grid (Ace3 based) version in the Cataclysm4.01 patch . It worked perfectly in WLK so I guess an update is needed.

In Cata swiftmend is real important for resto druids because efflourescence procs off it so an easy way to monitor when swiftmend is ready and identify viable targets would be even more useful than it was in WLK

I really hope borlum can find the time to provide a working update

The interface version in the .TOC is listed as "33500" and the client says it's out of date. It should be "30300".

That was a mistake from my part. I didn't enable it as default. I'll submit a new version when I get home.

I was expecting this update to finally recognize Death Knights that meet the Swiftmend status, but it doesn't seem to? Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Well, actually it does. And always have done so. I know this is an old post.
