BOLT - Beacon Of Light Timer  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.581
by: Daltanious [More]


by Daltanious of Kul Tiras


BOLT is my very first addon... so have mercy

Beacon of Light is the main weapon in the holy paladin arsenal, keep the Beacon up on a target (a tank for example) is essential but its huge spell cost (from 1536 base cost to 1306 with talents & glyph) doens't allow to be simply refreshed at random. An early refresh of Beacon of Light, if not forced by external causes (boss strategy), is a huge waste of mana and a precious global cooldown time.

BOLT, designed mainly for holy paladins, will help you to keep up the Beacon of Light, Sacred Shield and Judgements of the Pure spells/effects.

Features:
  • Beacon of Light, Sacred Shield and Judgements of the Pure trackers with the support of duration modifiers like glyphs and talents
  • Auto hide function when spells or talents are not available
  • Button focus: save an independent focus target for each button and right click to re-cast the spell on your saved target*
  • Real time duration check: if your buff get removed the countdown will stop with a sound alarm
  • Customizable sound and flash alerts
  • Button scaling, drag&drop, pin/unpin, custom alpha level
  • Auto hide when not in combat
  • Lightweight (50Kb) and non intrusive
  • Russian localization (if you want additional localization just send me the BOLTLNG.lua file properly localized: just remove the russian localization and add your own strings, I will add your translations on next releases)

Controls:
  • SHIFT - Doubleclick to Pin/Unpin a Button on the screen
  • CTRL - Doubleclick to set up a target as focus for BOL or SS

* due to Blizz limitation you can set the focus only when out of combat


For bug reporting please post a message in the official thread.
Check the changelog for versions details.

Patched/fix

Hey guys, I thought I'd post here to let you know that I have uploaded a working version that i fixed up over the past two days - working through dalts' code was a task but i go there once i found where the problems were.

Some functionality I took out to make a quick fix - i hope to fix these issues once I learn more about the code and hope to have another version up next week!

I have also tested bolt on the cataclysm BETA and it works!

anyway here is the new link to BOLT downloads:
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...atch4.0.1.html
Also I do ask if you posted comments on my page as I wont check these ones very often

I would most definitely love you long time if you could possibly work in a Light's Grace tracker to this addon. It would complete me.

I really hope that too.

By the way, i got some nice features idea you maybe could add to BOLT, because i just simply love the addon. But until theese features are added i need to stick to Power Aura Classic

Future Features ( maybe? ) :
  • Size options on all buttons
  • Perma Lock/Unlock in GUI
  • ButtonFacade / rActionbuttonStyler support
  • Customizeable fonts/timers

Is there any way of being able to use the buttons (effectively right click the button) through a button press? I have beacon and sacred shield on my n52, and would like to use this addon features instead of using the macro/focus target I currently use.

I have tried getting the name of the button but it doesnt show up, so I cant just create a macro to do this

thanks for a wonderful addon, I will be using it just as a timer if nothing else
