PowerUp

Version: 40200.1
by: Ailae [More]

PowerUp is a ingame tracker for Holy Power (for pallies) and Soul Shards (for locks). The display is very basic and similar to other addons. In the picture on your left you can see what it looks, the above bar is Holy Power and the other one Soul Shards.

The overlay you can see on the Holy Power is a timer guesstimating when a charge of Holy Power will expire. This timer can be disabled if undesired.

There are a few in-game options, accessible either via /powerup|/pu or directly via the Interface Options.

These are the general thoughts behind how the Holy Power decay-timer works..

Observation has shown that a charge expires approximately 10 seconds after you receive it, unless you are in combat. If you are in combat the charge persists (unless you use it of course) and when you exit combat a timer will start. There's one very important aspect to make note off though. If you had a charge before you entered combat, with for example 5 seconds left on its duration, and you entered combat and didn't use the charge, the timer will pick up where it paused prior to combat.

Due to latency both between one self and the servers as well as difference when the game considers you out of combat to when you're actually out of combat (and Blizzards internal timer starts) it's not possible to make it 100% accurate. As such there's a flat .25 added onto the timer to account for this delay, but this number can be tweaked if wanted.

Please report bugs if you find them or any other thoughts you might have.

40200.1
TOC/Version-bump.
Changes that reflect changes done to combat log events.

hey there!

Have you thought about adding Shadow Orbs and Chi to this addon? I've added Shadow Orbs myself (very crude, suck at .lua! ) and I'm guessing Chi shouldn't be all too much harder either, can't check since I haven't bothered to buy MoP yet.

Something to consider, since there aren't that many addons out there which has Shadow Orbs and Chi in a neat bar like this.


Keep up the good work. You're making my UI look a lot better!

For what it's worth, in Miks Scrolling Battle Text I get two messages for Holy Power when Eternal Glory proccs.
First one tells me that my Holy Power dropt to 0, and second one tells me that my Holy Power is back to 3.
I'll look into it. Like I said below, haven't noticed this myself as Holy with Eternal Glory. But I'll try and switch my protection offspec around a bit and see if I can reproduce it.

Only thing i've found is that Holy Power granted by Eternal Glory (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=87164) does not get registered.

** Edit ** Only @3HP
Hm, I'm afraid I haven't noticed this myself. Could you describe it more in detail or possibly a way to reproduce it? Thanks for the report!

Yeah, it does, added it to the latest version. So found a nice little solution after all. Thanks for the tip though!

So at the moment I can't think of a trivial way to fix this. I tried listening for UNIT_SPELLCAST_SUCCEEDED but that open ups a new whole bunch of problems (was the spell something that would yield a charge, etc).

So gonna have to think about it some more.. To me it also feels like a scenario in which it's not that big of a deal to know when the next charge is gonna expire. It's outside of combat and if you exited combat with 3 charges ready, you'll get the correct timer. So it's only if you spam stuff to get charges in between fights you would run into this I'd assume.

Thanks for the report, I'll look into it. I think I have a hunch why. There's so many different scenarios I must've forget to try that one.

EDIT: and when I had 1 Holy Power, and entered combat and gained more Holy Power, but never used any, the timer was stuck at what it was precious to combat. As in the timer was at 4sec or so(since I entered combat 6 sec after my last holy power gain), and it continued to stay at 4 seconds with 3stacks when I got out of combat, and continued all the way down to zero with just 4 sec as timer.
