A very simple addon that hides the Game Tooltip while your in combat. There is a slash command to let you enable auras (buff/debuff) tooltips to display in combat if you prefer them to be shown.
I was surprised that there is not many addons out there that do this. The ones that I did find are just too heavily coded or bloated. I wanted something extremely small that did that job without too many bells and whistles.
This addon is extraordinarily small. It's only a few lines but it does the job
Just install and go!
Hold SHIFT key down during combat to see tooltips!
List of frames the addon ignores:
Group Loot Frames
Quest Log Frame
Quest Reward Frame
/xth auras --toggles the Aura (Buff/Debuff) tooltips to display in combat (ON/OFF)
