Quartz LatencyMF2  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 10.4
by: Tifi [More]
This Quartz plug-in displays the latency for the second Mind Flay tick to facilitate casting MF2 (clipping the last tick).

The latency bars will update when pushback occurs. You will always lose at least the third tick in this case, so you're actually forced to cast MF2. A good example is Sarth3D, where you'll continually suffer pushback because of Twilight Torment.

I also added another spark. While you cast a spell, you can send the next spell to the spell queue. There's a slight delay between stopping the current cast and starting the next (queued) cast. The new spark will show you when exactly you sent the next spell. Normally this spark should land somewhere in the red latency zone.

The plug-in is for Quartz r10. You can get it from curse (the version on wowi is r7, not sure if it's compatible).
It requires Quartz_Player and Quartz_Latency to be enabled.
10.4
Hide the original latency bar on pushback because the third tick is lost anyways.

10.3
Update the latency bars on pushback.

10.2
Hide the latency bar when channeling, but not MF. (I.e. MF->MS)

10.1
Initial release.

Unfortunately there's no easy way to ask WoW how many ticks a channeled spell has, so this information would need to be hardcoded.

Anyways, currently I have no plans to make this addon work for spells other than Mind Flay.
Thanks Tifi. The EJ solution will work (even though it doesn't work well with pushback yet) until Quartz is updated to work with tickmarks.

Do you think you'd be able to update your plug-in to work with all Channeled spells? The reason I ask is, as a Warlock, I'd like Quartz to show me all tickmarks for channeled spells like Drain Soul.

Thanks!

Thank you very much for this addon. I hadn't thought of clipping mindflay since sunwell due to the spell being bugged. When I was clipping I had simply used a custom texture divided into three equal parts. The dynamic nature of the "clip-range" which your addon highlights is fantastic. Much appreciated. Keep up the great work ^_^

I'm not exactly sure what to do when the latency exceeds 1/3 of the cast time. Currently I just don't display the new latency bar, because it would overlap with the default latency bar. If your latency is that high, you probably don't want to try casting MF2 anyways. Right? WTB input/suggestions.
