Serious Help In Timing  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.24
by: Tharin2002 [More]

Serious Help In Timing is an addon based off of Face Mauler, which is being developed by IndigoSpaniard.

This addon will provide a recommendation for Ret Paladin's FCFS rotation. The window contains 3 icons. The large center icon displays which ability you should hit next. The small icon on the right shows you which ability is coming up next. The small icon on the left shows if Avenging Wrath is off of cooldown.

The mod will only load if you are currently playing a paladin character.

The options menu can be reached via "/serioushelp" or "/shit". Options include:

Lock - Locks the frame at it's current location.

GUI Opacity - Change the opacity of the display frame, options from 0 (invisible) to 1 (fully visible).

GUI Scale - Changes the scale of the display frame, options from .5 to 2.

Show on: - Shows the mod only on "Valid Target" (not dead or friendly), "In Combat" (any time you are in combat, even if not targeting something), or "Boss Only" (only mobs classified as bosses with a skull instead of a level).

Range Check - Adds a range check to the icon. If you are out of range for an ability, it will turn red.


Minimum Mana to Consecrate
- Sets the minimum amount of mana that the addon will still recommend consecrate as part of your rotation. Once your mana drops below this amount, the addon will skip over recommendations of consecrate.

Max Mana to Divine Plea - The percentage of mana below which the addon will recommend Divine Plea.

Sacred Shield Refresh Time - The time left, in seconds, on Sacred Shield before the addon will recommend refreshing it.


Spell Priority 1-6
- Here you can set the priority that you would like the addon to recommend abilities.

Currently, the addon will only recommend Avenging Wrath during a Bloodlust/Heroism, and only if you have a free global (i.e. last priority).

For more information on FCFS rotations, and which abilities should be priority, you can find the latest information in this thread at Elitist Jerks: Ret Paladin Thread (Please note that this thread is for patch 3.0. Once 3.1 is released, a new thread will probably be created with information for the changes to the FCFS rotation.)

Currently, I have no plans to localize this addon for any other languages.

Additional thanks to rea123 on the EJ paladin forums for some code fixes.

TODO
- Change AW suggestion to just put a glow around the AW icon during Heroism/Bloodlust.

1.24 - Updated for patch 3.2. Fixed bug where nothing would show up until you changed targets when first engaging. Changed functionality of the "In Combat" visibility option. Now disregards if you have a valid target and will always show while your character is in combat, even with nothing targeted.

1.23 - Fixed a small bug with showing the mod at login until a new target is selected when the worldbosses was enabled. Disabled COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED handling while the addon is not being shown. The addon now checks to reenable this handling by target switching to a valid target or if all other requirements are met when entering combat. This should drastically reduce the CPU usage of the mod while idling in Dalaran.

1.22 - Added range check to current and next icons and an option to disable it in the options. Also fixed a bug where the Spell Priorities sub option menu would appear underneath another addon.

1.21b - Added fix for missing priorities resulting in no priority being displayed. Thanks to rea123 on EJ for the code fix.

1.21 - Disabled debug output >.< Sorry for not catching that.

1.2 - Finished tuning the suggestion code. The only jump is consecrate appearing instantly when your mana goes above the minimum set for consecrate while waiting on a cooldown. Added support for Sacred Shield and Divine Plea priorities and options for their conditional requirements. Added options for showing the addon during different conditionals (Valid Target, In Combat, Bosses Only). Cleared up bugs relating to Hammer of Wrath.

1.15 - More fine tuning on the suggestion code to minimize jumpiness. Also made next suggestions that were over 1.5 seconds away show up. The suggestion icon will go blank during the global of your last ability to indicate that everything is on cooldown. After the GCD, it will indicate your next ability and it's cooldown.

1.14 - Fixed talent check bug when Ret was not your primary spec. Also cleaned up a problem with the addon flashing when it detected an off-spec.

1.13 - Updated TOC for 3.1.

1.12 - Added an opacity option and added an option to select "None" in the spell priority dropdowns.

1.11 - Cleaned up the suggestion code to take into account the realtime gcd. There should be less jumping between abilities mid-gcd now. Also redid the Avenging Wrath indicator to now show the cooldown on the icon and stay up at all times.

1.1 - Added a check for Heroism as well as Bloodlust.

1.0 - First release. All features planned are currently implemented.

Can we get holy wrath added to this addon? It's a big part of the rotation and the perfect placement would be awesome

Because you can't have one icon that changes it's action in combat - that has been made impossible by blizzard because else you would have a 1-Button Class.

To aern: try CoolLine: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info12467-CoolLine.html

Im not an author myself this is just my 2c

In order to adapt this to other classes why not make he drop down boxes used to select moves boxes which can be typed into. This would allow the user to type in moves/items which could then be recognised from their inventory / bag and put up in the addon interface.

Also ehy not make the S.H.I.T interface clickable? Im personally a great fan of minimalist UI's and this function would remove the need for a large amount of action bars.

Could also add small icons in the top corners to show when a dps seal is NOT up/about to run out and if a you do not have a blessing on you.

Like i said i dont really know how to do the coding... just some ideas i had while i was using the addon earlier

Are there any plans to help adapt this to other classes? I know its something I would absolutely love to use for my hunter, but it doesn't seem like there is any way to make it work for a hunter in the options menu.

This addon is great!!! Just one point to review... an option to enable/disable the addon because it'll be good for dualspec.

Would there be any possibility of adding an option to disable SH1T when one is not Ret spec?

One thing I've noticed is that Sacred Shield is only being tracked if it's cast on yourself. When I cast it on a tank for fights like Vezax, e.g., it remains on the priority queue.

Is there a way to change it to recognize SS casts on other people as well?

You have to setup a priority before the addon will do anything. There is a current bug where the Spell Priority configuration submenu doesn't show up right underneath the Serious Help In Timing menu. Check for a sub menu under another addon called Spell Priorities. Specifically, it seems to be showing up under SexyMap if you have that installed as well. If it shows up under any other addons, please let me know here so that I can check it out.

If you have questions on FCFS priorities, then I suggest reading up on them over at Elitist Jerks.

For the short answer:
CS > HoW > Judgement > DS > Consecration > Exorcism > Holy Wrath

I know it's for raiding, but I decided to play around with it for my dps. Notice how in the description it doesn't say you "have" to be 80 to use this. Also, you don't have to be an ass about it. I was trying to be constructive and you come in here with your condescending tone. So excuse me for trying to be helpful in making the addon more accessible
No worries. My paladin is only level 62 tbqh I raid on a feral druid. I had to implement some kind of check in order to keep the mod from showing up for Holy or Prot paladins, and the easiest way to do that was to pick a spell that only a Ret paladin would have. In this case, it's Crusader Strike. I have made some changes to allow you to use the mod at lower levels, but as of right now, Crusader Strike is required to even have the mod show up.

Personally, before you get Crusader strike, I don't think there's much of a rotation. You don't really have the mana (or need) to use consecrate, so you just judge and auto-attack. I won't be adding support for lower levels in the mod, but if you are handy with a text editor, you are more than welcome to change the Crusader Strike check to something else... say Consecrate. Then the mod will show up no matter what spec you are though.

Open SHlT.lua and search for every instance of
Code:
GetSpellInfo(SHlT.L["Crusader Strike"])
Replace that with
Code:
GetSpellInfo(SHlT.L["Consecration"])
(Don't copy and paste due to me having to use an L instead of an I for filter reasons)
