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.

This is an excellent Shaman addon, but I have a question. How does someone add a sound file to the audible alert list? For example, I would like to add the Tuk warning sound to the list, but cannot for the life of me figure out where to adjust the data.

Thank you again for a great addon.

ShieldsUp gets its list of sounds via the LibSharedMedia-3.0 library. In order to add more sounds, you need to register more sounds with the library. The easiest way to do this is to download the addon SharedMedia, and follow the instructions included in the "MyMedia instructions.txt" file for adding your own sounds (or fonts, or textures), which will then be available to ShieldsUp and all other addons using the library.

Thank you for the response. Unfortunately, I was unable to get the sound file to play. It showed up in the drop down alert list in the Shieldsup config menu, but no audio noise could be heard.

It might have something to do with the UI package I am using. The 'Tuk Warning' appears just fine with Elv's UI package, but when trying a different package by Eclipse, there is nothing, even with using sharedmedia (both automatic and manual setup).

But thank you again for your help and for a great Shaman addon.

Make sure that the path to the sound file is correct, and that the sound file was in place before WoW started; WoW builds a list of files when it first opens, and won't pick up on any file additions or deletions while it's running.

ShieldsUp appears to be working fine on Cataclysm beta realms, but as I'm not actually playing there (just logging in to test and update addons) I may have missed something. Please post a bug report if you discover any problems.

Bugs with 4.0

Hi Phanx--the addon isn't appearing for me unless I move its position, and it's not reporting any of my shields on any target--self/water or other/earth. I'll see if I can figure out if it's a mod conflict or a bug with ShieldsUp. Thanks!

Bug with ShieldsUp looks like:
I've deleted your comment for two reasons:

1. The version of ShieldsUp you're using is extremely outdated. Addons are updated for a reason. Absolutely no support will be provided for any version but the current one.

2. Error reports belong in the bug tracker to report bugs, not the comments page.

Oh man! Sorry about that--I usually keep all my addons up to date so I didn't even think to check version numbers. That explains a lot. Thanks for steering me in the right direction.

Recently took up again on this lovely little thing on my elemental shaman, now that knowing at all times how many charges of lightning shields actually has a purpose

Features request. Could it be possible to add a 'fade out of combat' feature and perhaps a scaling options to make fonts even larger than normally allowed?

Thanks kindly

1. WoW simply won't render any fonts larger than size 28-36 (it depends on the particular font file you're using), so what you're asking for is not possible. You can pass 9000 to the SetFont function if you want, but you won't see any difference between that and 36.

2. You can already hide ShieldsUp when you're out of combat. Take another look at the options. There's an entire panel for setting the conditions under which you want the addon to be visible.

You appear to be correct Phanx, seems I completely missed the expanded options menu. I'm sure you can see my issue with spotting small fonts now

No. The Fulmination talent does not actually require you to have 9 charges of Lightning Shield, and I do not want ShieldsUp to get into the business of making gameplay suggestions. If you're having trouble remembering to use Earth Shock, you may find this addon useful:

TOC is still 30300 and will not work for ppl who haven't checked "Load out of date addons".
Other than that works great. Thanks for the update.
