ShieldsUp  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.3.190
by: Phanx, Akkorian
ShieldsUp monitors your Earth Shield, Water Shield, and Lightning Shield.
  • Easy-to-read plain text display
  • Shows your active shields and their remaining charges *
  • Shows who you cast your Earth Shield on
  • Visual indication when another shaman overwrites your Earth Shield
  • Optional text and sound alerts when one of your shields expires or is removed
  • Condensed display while solo (or for shamans without Earth Shield)
  • Support for all colorblindness modes
  • Support for custom fonts and sounds via LibSharedMedia-3.0 media packs
* Note that Water Shield and Lightning Shield will display a "W" or "L", respectively, except for elemental shamans, who will see a number for Lightning Shield when they have at least one extra charge.

Type “/sup” for options, or browse to the ShieldsUp panel in the standard Interface Options window.
Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why isn’t ShieldsUp monitoring my Earth Shield?
A: ShieldsUp only monitors Earth Shield when it’s cast on yourself, or on a player or pet in your party or raid group. There is no way for addons to reliably monitor buffs cast on units who are not in your group, so ShieldsUp doesn’t try.
Q: Why am I only seeing one charge counter?
A: ShieldsUp switches to a single-counter display when you are solo, or if you don’t have the Earth Shield talent, since in either situation it’s only possible for you to have one shield active on a target ShieldsUp can monitor.
Feature Requests
I consider ShieldsUp to be complete, and do not plan to add any new features. If you would like to suggest something anyway, feel free to submit a suggestion ticket describing your idea.
Bug Reports
If you encounter a problem with ShieldsUp, please try some quick troubleshooting steps first, and then submit a bug report to let me know about the problem.

Please copy this list into your ticket and fill in as many of the details as you can.
  • ShieldsUp version (eg. 3.3.5.71)
  • WoW version and locale (as seen on the login screen, eg. 3.3.5 enUS)
  • Character level, spec, and race
  • Description of the problem
  • What steps can I follow to reproduce the problem?
  • Does the problem happen when all other addons are disabled?
  • Exact text of the first related error message, if any.
    Please DO NOT include any lists of local variables or installed addons that your error display may add!
  • Screenshot, if the problem is graphical.
Remember to check on your ticket after a few days, as I may need more information from you in order to find and fix the problem!
Language Support
Compatible with all locales. Translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano (partial), Português, Русский, 한국어 (partial), 简体中文, and 繁體中文.

To add or update translations for any locale, enter them on the ShieldsUp localization page on CurseForge, and then leave a comment, or send me a PM here or on CurseForge, to let me know that you’ve made changes. If you don’t have a Curse account and don’t want to create one, you can PM me your translations instead. Thanks!

It happens in both cases. The only settings I have changed are the font the position and color, but I also tried resetting everything to default settings.

Interesting. Only one of those should be visible at a time while you're solo. Does it happen when you log in solo, after you leave a group, or both? Which settings (if any) have you changed from the defaults?

Hello I have a problem using ShieldsUp while soloing. The number for earth shield and the W for water shield overlap. I have version 5.4.7.173 installed. This only happens while I am not in a party, but I would still like to fix it. I tried disabling all other addons but the problem persists.

Ok, i ll try to cover all the situation here.

* No specc switch has been made. This happens when i enter the game and immediately queue for BG. After the BG loading screen, the addon display gets messed up.

* No fix can be seen when i spam either ES or WS.

...BUT...

A while ago i logged into the game and entered random BG (iotc). While i had no problems in Stormwind, when i entered the BG it went like this...

http://imageshack.us/a/img191/3330/w...0113212528.jpg

After spamming ES on various players and WS on me, on me nothing happened. Even with WS on me, it seems that WS indicator goes right side and gets stuck to 0 (should be left side), and ES comes very close to the other indicator but is on the left instead of right. The gates open.. we run for docks.. and all of a sudden.. this happens :

http://imageshack.us/a/img826/3955/w...0113212704.jpg

So i stopped and ssed it. Nothing really happened when it got fixed. I suspect another addon blocks it. I ll do some research and let you know..

Cheers..

Display problem

I updated this mod some days ago and it seems to display the things in a bit of weird way.

http://imageshack.us/a/img20/1972/wo...3113155100.jpg

I hope this screenshot helps.
Earthshield should be on Homli (displayed)
Watershield is on me (NOT displayed. Instead i see a red 0 almost stuck on the right side of ES counter. Watershield should have been on left side anyway)

For some reason.. this happens when i enter the BGs.. and seems to randomly gets fixed after a while.. Note that it doesnt get fixed when i /console reloadui

Pretty thanks for this precious mod anyway
