BigBadBear

Version: 2.4
by: Blinddate [More]

Big Bad Bear

This addon was made when a Bear tanking friend of mine, Bomboclaat, asked me why my Ardent Defender addon didn't work for him.

I decided to make him an addon for his bear tanking needs, with similar features but absolutely no configuration and extremely lightweight.

This addon will:

- Announce when you use Berzerk, Survival Instincts, Barkskin, Frenzied Regeneration and Challenging Roar, also lets your group/raid know when the ability has faded.
- Lets you know if the NPC you are tanking parries an attack from another player.. tell them to get behind it!
- Announces to party/raid if your GROWL taunt misses, is resisted, or the target is immune.
- Tells you (or if enabled, raid) when another person taunts your target.
- All messages are now customizable via Interface Options.

You can open the options panel via Interface options, or type /bbb.

That's it.. it's that simple.

Are you a Paladin tank? See my other addon, Ardent Defender, available right here on WowInterface!

This addon is pretty much non functional anymore, I haven't updated it in a year or so. I have a new addon (available on Curse.com) called Tanker that does the same stuff but works for Druids & Warriors (and DK's eventually)

You can fix this by changing the following in Bigbadbear.lua:

On line #251, change
Code:
local eventType, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags,destGUID, destName, _, prefix1, prefix2, prefix3 = select(3,...)
to
Code:
local eventType, _, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags,destGUID, destName, _, prefix1, prefix2, prefix3 = select(3,...)
and on line #263, change
Code:
local immunity = select(12,...)
to
Code:
local immunity = select(13,...)
Hope that helps.

Who taunted might be the addon you need.. I have no plans to make a standalone..

It comes in handy when I'm Bear Tanking as well. "Hey everyone, look who the idiot is." When they taunt off <3 I've been looking for something like this. Thank you

I believe I have a pretty easy way to identify when the T10 set bonus triggers,
anyone want to give it a shot and let me know if it works?

Check on entering combat, what parts the player is wearing

Ids setwise

iLvl 277
51295
51296
51297
51298
51299

iLvl 264
51140
51141
51142
51143
51144

iLvl 251
50824
50825
50826
50827
50828

Ids slotwise
shoulder (51295, 51140, 50824)
chest (51296, 51141, 50825)
legs (51297, 51142, 50826)
head (51298, 51143, 50827)
hands (51299, 51144, 50828)

Or, easy way, just make configurable, and the player has to decide him self, when he wants to broadcast that CD

One feature request:
With 4 Pieces T10 druids will get another CD. You you please add that too? Preferrably only display it, when the player has that set bonus.

Spell id is 5229 (wowhead link)
duration: 10s
Effect: -12% damage

Set bonus is here
I'll look into it. Not sure how to tell if someone has the set bonus or not, but I'm sure I'll figure it out..
