ShieldsUp  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!

I'm using grid and monitor earth shield on there. I love having water shield with a number like that. No big deal was just asking.

That information is not remotely useful. If you want me to fix your problem, post a ticket in the bug tracker that includes the following:

1. A screenshot of the font choice menu in ShieldsUp.

2. A screenshot of the font choice menu in an addon where the other fonts appear.

3. A screenshot or raw directory listing of your AddOns folder.

Yes, most of the other Addons I have installed (e.g. kgPanels, Pitbull etc.) are using the fonts in all "Lib"-folders.

ShieldsUp already uses LibSharedMedia-3.0. The addons you mentioned (which, by the way, do not actually have the "Lib" prefix, because they are addons, not libraries) work by registering more fonts with LibSharedMedia-3.0. Addons like ShieldsUp then read the list of fonts that are registered with LibSharedMedia-3.0 and allow you to choose from them. Those "15 fonts" you mention are from LibSharedMedia-3.0.

If the addons you named have "Lib" in their name in your AddOns folder, that's probably why you can't choose fonts from them, because their folder name doesn't match their TOC name and WoW doesn't recognize them as loadable addons.

Can you select fonts registered by those addons in other addons besides ShieldsUp? If not, make sure you installed them correctly. If so, please provide a screenshot of the font choice menu in ShieldsUp, and another screenshot of the font choice menu in another addon where the fonts do show up.

I would like a feature to use all the fonts in LibSharedMedia, LibSharedMedia_MyMedia and LibSharedMediaAdditionalFonts too, not only the few registered ones ShieldsUp knows atm (or where ever these 15 fonts are from).

Reporting Problems

If you encounter a problem with ShieldsUp, first check the bug report tracker to see if the problem has already been reported. If it hasn't, try some basic troubleshooting steps. Then, submit a bug report, making sure to include:
  • the information you gathered through troubleshooting,
  • the class and level of your character, and
  • the talent specialization(s) of your character.
Most importantly, remember to check on your ticket after a few days, as I may need more information to solve the problem!

Yes, that's a known issue. You can check for known issues by looking at the list of Bug Reports. That particular issue is a very low priority, though, as the status of your shield at the moment you login is almost never important anyway, and I have limited time to work on addons.

I can't speak to any of the other issues people have listed here but, for me, the only problem I currently seem to have with ShieldsUp is that when I log in, it doesn't recognize the shield or charges I already have up.

For example, if I log in and I have 8 minutes and 2 charges left on Lightning Shield, ShieldsUp is a red zero until I recast. That's true for any shield and any charges I have, until recast. Then it seems, for me, to be working just fine.
