Seven Seasons

Version: 1.2
by: tweetor [More]

Seven Seasons is an addon that tracks the actual type of damage taken by you and your party members. It can be used for pallys to determine which aura should be used during combat.

Since there are 7 damage types (Physical, Holy, Fire, Nature, Frost, Shadow and Arcane) the addon is called "Seven Seasons". It provides you with a moveable window and a bar for each damage type.

It displays the total damage taken by your group at the top and the percentages and absolute amounts per damage type in the bars.

It has a few options:

  • Report the damage statistics to Party / Raid / Say Channels
  • Reset the amounts (which also happens automatically if you enter the next combat)
  • Hide the window

Once the window is hidden, you can show it again by typing
  • /sevenseasons
  • /sev
into the chat.

There are a couple more things I've always wanted to add, but never really found the time to work on:
  • Make the bars dynamic (remove their fixed position, sort descending, etc...)
  • Add a nicer frame around the options window
  • Add more config options to adjust size, colors, etc...
  • Maybe add "aura suggestion" functionality to it if you're a pally

If there's anyone with real coding skills that wants to pick this up - fair enough, just drop me a line.

Thanks to the authors of the book "World of Warcraft Programming", from where I took the raw skeletion for my addon. I wonder if there will be a new edition of the book some time :-)

- Very robust programming, it still works after leaving it alone for such a long time (after cancelling my account and re-enabling it after a year or so...)

- Updated TOC
- Still works as version 1.0

(I got no time to really enhance this addon, if anyone would like to pick this up, just let me know)

I love it too, but why does it reset after each fight? I'd like it to stay up and add on until I reset it manually too see what damages you the most in a zone/instance/BG etc.

Also, please make the slash command to show it a toggle so it can be opened and closeed with one button.

When you work on config options, could you make it so that the border is removable?

Fantastic addon, but does need a size scaler, or some other way to view it without needing a huge window. Maybe a slash command to show the data in the chat frame or fubar plugin.
