TankMastery

Version: v0.90
by: ahmetqw [More]

TankMastery is a helper add-on for tanks. When used, it can:
* watch your target, and produce a self/raid/party/channel message if it gets taunted/knocked-back/mocked
* show you an icon about the targeting review of the moment (if it is targeting a tank, if that tank is targeting it back etc) [v0.70+]
* can warn you if your taunt failed [v0.90+]

It is mainly created to encourage synergy between the tanks, improve the raid quality, see who is being a "bad boy" and if possible, minimize such encounters. : )

* Taunt System at the very moment supports single target taunts, AOE taunts, mocks, pet threat spells and knock-backs. You can use it to pinpoint which dps is knocking back the mobs making it harder to tank/build aggro (Thunderstorm, Typhoon).
* TankWatch-Icon feature helps you to quickly pinpoint which mob is going out of control or which one can be taunted to take the load of other tanks easily/safely (with their current targets in mind).
* TankMastery HyperSense (TM-HS) is a new experimental feature to provide you more taunt/pull information. Will probably add more features to it in the future.

Sample output:
* XXX taunted YYY using ZZZZ.
* XXX mocked YYY using ZZZ.
* XXX knocked-away YYY using ZZZ.

Few Important Reminders:
* "Tank X taunted a mob off me and addon didnt track it!"... Please note that by design, addon *only* tracks taunts on your target (any type), NOT other adds on you. We dont wanna be spammy, yet we want to be effective. In future versions I might add setting to enable that as well; let me know if you really need it.
* "Tank Watch icon is sometimes a little slow to update!"... Do note that addon entirely depends on client reporting changes and new targets; so any lag in connection, or any lag in wow client notifying us will delay the icon as well. TankMastery (as of 0.85) *only checks your and your target's target changes; the effect on performance is expected to be *very negligible.
* "TM-HS is sometimes/always wrong!"... HyperSense feature is very experimental and hence the results can be sometimes not accurate. We have limited window to WoW's real events and such guesses can be surely prone to errors. Got suggestions for it? Let me know. Hate it? Go to options and turn it off.

(Recent) New Features:
* Automatically enables/disables based on class/stance.
* Basic configuration screen (able to choose where to report)
* [v0.70+] Target review icon
* [v0.80+] Player/Self failed taunts (resists/immune) are watched as well now.
* [v0.88+] HyperSense

Future to-do list:
* Thinking if we should check for failed taunts of other tanks on our targets...
* different output channels for different tracked events?
* maybe checking for taunts on other tanks' mobs?
* improved configuration screen (what to print out, who to check etc)
* ... even more, who knows. Addon name is very general, why not make use of it

Feel free to post your constructive comments/suggestions; and spread around the word. Thanks.

v0.90
* improving the config screen a little
* Optimized spell look-up tables
* Bumped TOC to 302
+ TM-HS only works in instances now.
+ Fixes to the command-line
+ Hunter pet Growl added to taunt list

v0.85
* Blizzard UI MT detection fixed.
* Local tank detection improved.
* Updates/Fixes for TankWatch icon. Should work much better now.

v0.81
* Fixed the DK detection that broke on v0.80.

v0.80
* PlayerClass check is now language independent. TankMastery should now work with non-english clients.

I and my raid are a big fan of this addon, the taunt/miss/immune messages especially. It helps keep the sla- I mean healers informed on who has the boss, much faster than calling out taunt resists in vent.

I would like the addon even more though if there was some way to get it to also announce my own successful taunts. My cotank likes to run as mod-free as he can due to hardware issues, and likes seeing my messages in the channel we've set up for them (so that they're a different color/stand out more!), and though piggybacking on my use of TankMastery is good enough for him in most cases, he would like to get a message when I successfully taunt.

hmm idd, I will post few more shots very soon. : D

indeed it works for all tanking classes; it turns on and off automatically based on stance (not spec). Spec/Talent check/change maybe in future, if there is demand for it.

it does support basic sct addons as it uses the LibSink for main output.

thanks again, and yea, would really like to hear your comments/input as well. : )

Interesting idea.

A screenshot from In-game would be nice.

Does this work for Druids, and are you turning it off while in cat form, and is there a way to overwrite these kinda options.

Does this report to Scroll Combat Text type addons?

Keep up the work, and I look forward to downloading this and giving it a try tonight.

Real action shot could be nice. Where do those icons show up? Only when targeting or with nameplates?

next release...

hehe nws, np at all. i can pretty much answer that as 'very soon'...

next version might have few more experimental features then originally planned, hence the little delay. im hoping to release it in few days.

current notes:
* next version will auto-disable taunt reporting (and icon?) outside party/raid instances...
* few optimizations
there might be few experimental features as well; will see when the release time comes. very soon.

thanks. still much more room to keep it even neater but thats lower on priority list atm : )

on a side note, so far im very happy with the updated icon functionality on v0.85; seems much more accurate and reliable now. some kinks to iron out, but still, feeling that its moving in the right direction.
oh indeed oRA2 is on my list; will go over very soon. also need to check the oRA3 MT protocol differences as well I guess.

You might wanna make it work with ORA2 MT function.

I took a look on your coding and it looks really neat.

But if you than added some more to it for tanks
For example:
Shield Wall (For all respected classes)
Last stand (For all respected classes)
Vigilence (Wishper to person or just yell or raid chat, option)

How does it handle AOE taunts? (Challenage Shout)

But dam I will love the knockback because i wanna shout at some people for doing it!!!

It doesnt say it annouces if the target is immune/resist/miss on taunt
* Hmm Wall,Vigi,LastStand I guess now it is now time to implement these indeed. Lemme see what I can do about them (and see how other addon's present them)

* AOE taunts should work properly. If the mob you are targeting gets affected by one, it should point it out. Sort of coincides with add-on's logic that 'I am mainly interested in my target, the other mobs are my second priority'. So you will not get a message for every other mob that you are not currently targeting.

* Immune/Resist/Miss checks are actually on the way in. Should be properly available on next build (i just need to set different output configuration for them to avoid spam).

Thanks for the comments
