Zombie
Version: 2.1.1
by: Jpapertowels [More]
Zombie is now fully compatible with Bartender4 and Dominos as of version 2.0.1!

Zombie Resources has a separate command from Zombie, it is /zres - not /zombie!
(commands are separate incase people want to lock or scale one but not the other, or want to run just Zombie Resources or just Zombie)

Zombie is an addon for death knights that simplifies gameplay and maximizes DPS by doing all the decision making for you.
It will calculate what ability would give you the highest DPS during the current combat situation, as well as guess the ability that should usually be used next.
The addon is comprised of three icons, left to right they are:
  • The Previously Used Ability icon - Displays the last correct ability you casted (to show you that you actually casted it before the icon changed)
  • The Best Choice Ability icon - Displays the best ability to cast for maximum DPS during the current combat situation
  • The Next Up Ability icon - Displays the most likely ability to become the best choice ability after you use an ability
Other features of Zombie includes:
  • Glowing Ability Buttons - Your ability buttons glow when they become the best choice ability
  • Automatic AoE Mode - When you cast an AoE ability, Zombie will automatically switch to an AoE priority list if the spell hits a certain amount of targets (3 is the default), then it will switch back to single target if a certain amount of targets aren't being hit or you use a single target priority list only ability!
  • Know When You Miss - A red border will appear on the previously used icon when your attack misses or gets parried or dodged
  • Moveable, Lockable, and Scalable - Each icon can separately be moved to wherever you like on the screen, then locked or scaled to any size
  • Resource Bars AddOn - No dependencies! Must be enabled within the AddOns menu on the character selection screen
Slash command for Zombie user configurable options: /zombie

Zombie Resources is an included optional addon also for death knights only that displays information vital to the death knight gameplay, such as your rune cooldowns, runic power, and global cooldown in a simple and elegant fashion.

Slash command for Zombie Resources user configurable options: /zres, /zombres, and /zombieres

F.A.Q.
  • Why is it called Zombie?
    When you use this addon a lot, it becomes your way of playing, you stop having to think about what ability to use and you just use it when you see the icon. Man, it's like you became a zombie!
  • Why does it take up so much RAM?
    It doesn't anymore! Upgrade to version 2.0 or higher, the memory requirement just went from 20 MB to 120 KB in combat! Feel free to increase the frequency.
  • Why don't the Zombie icons show up in Blood spec?
    That's a work in progress, currently only Frost and Unholy are supported. Sorry. At least you still get the resource bars.
Not so F.A.Q.
  • How can I donate to this amazingly useful addon that completely changed my life?
    Click one of the buttons on the donate tab of this addon page! (the green one takes 3% off)
v2.1.1
- Increased visibility of global cooldown bar in Zombie Resources
- Optimized usage of Blood Tap for Frost
- Added option to disable Blood Tap incase you want to manage that yourself
- Fixed issue where previously used ability did not update if your frequency was too often

v2.1
- Now uses textures instead of backdrops (I don't have to create needless arrays on every update now!)
- Sexier border implemented on ability icons
- Minor code changes for performance

v2.0.2
- Fixed issue where another player's Horn of Winter made it think you didn't have Horn of Winter
- Attempted to fix issue where Zombie sometimes disappears by recoding the "when to show" system, let me know if it works people!
- Army of the Dead now defaults to off
- Targets who are 2 levels or more above you while you are not in a raid group are now classified as bosses (Dungeon bosses are now bosses)

v2.0.1
- Now fully compatible with Bartender4 and Dominos! Yay... and now I'm using Dominos (you guys lured me in)
- Fixed issue where scrolling through action bars did not update glow effect

v2.0
- Recoded most of the entire addon, which means memory usage just went from 20 MB on the average boss fight to 120 KB max (what is this 0.6% of what it used to use?)
- Fixed many more very annoying bugs
- Now stops recommending Unholy Presence when you are in Frost Presence (in cases of AoE mostly, I don't know who would want it for single target...)
- Major version update because I really can't find any more bugs and so many abilities were fixed

v1.2
- Recoded most of the AoE detection system, it should now work flawlessly - I really should test more before I upload ;)
- Fixed a couple next ability bugs
- Added a reset to defaults command
- New method of detecting missing saved variables and new installation detection to prevent errors

v1.1.4
- Fixed usage of tContains so that aoe targets list doesn't add multiple of the same target (who would have known it wouldn't guess the table I wanted to check? lol)

v1.1.3
- Actually fixed the vehicle entry crash, might have fixed action bar addon crashes as well
- Fixed issue where DnD added a fake unit GUID to the aoe targets list causing aoe mode to trigger with 1 less target

v1.1.2
- Implemented workaround for unusual application time of diseases after using Howling Blast w/ glyph or Outbreak (should stop Howling Blast from flashing for half a second when you should use Plague Strike, and Plague Strike from flashing after you just used Outbreak) - Why does it take 1.1 seconds for diseases to appear?

v1.1.1
- Attempting to fix crash on vehicle entry (requires reloadui if it doesn't work)
- Fixed needless blood tapping in frost priority list

v1.1
- Added AoE rotations that are enabled automatically when Zombie detects you are AoEing (3 targets or more)
- Possibly fixed "forgot Howling Blast glyph" bug, or rather, a workaround by rechecking on target change
- Fixed some priority list bugs with the next up icon
- Now disables itself when you enter a vehicle and target someting attackable

v1.0
- Initial release

Ok here it goes. I totally love this add-on by from any add-on. I do have a big request! Put a blood/tank rotation, plsssssssssssssss! I use CLC DK for tanking mode only and I'm not a fan of that add-on due to the fact that is not as simple as your add-on. Also hate to have to log off just to turn addons on and off just switch specs. So pls pls pls put in a tanking rotation!

Love the add on, really makes a difference. Please keep updating this as this is the only real add on I use for my DK besides Quartz for my debuff timers.

Rotation

Could you update your addon to 4.3 patch and change rotation in each spec, I mean to add or remove some abilities. I don't like see Horn of the winter in rotation and some other spells.

Thanks

EDIT:

Maybe I could delete that abilities from rotation, tell me how then and I could love this addon

Lightbulb Toggle On/Off

Just wanted to recommend you make a command to have it toggle totally on/off so I can use it when I DPS but have it be gone, without having to reload my UI, when I Tank.

DK / Zombie Help

Hi!

I just started playing my DK again, and I came across your mod. I have a question regarding the suggestion of Death and Decay. Even when I turn the AoE option off this suggestion comes up - should this be part of my single target rotation?

Also - Unholy Frenzy gets suggested a lot - when questing as Unholy this really eats into my downtime because it eats into my health so much. I am currently only level 82 so I am not sure if this has an effect on the spell rotation or not, but as my self healing is limited (I believe) to Death Strike I end up going through a lot of bandages / foodstuffs.

Is there an optimum set of settings you can recommend for simply questing - mainly 1v1 with the odd 1v2 or 3 situation.

Thanks for your time and assistance!

From what code I'm reading in Masque, they would have to add support for Zombie - not the other way around.

Otherwise I could check if Masque is loaded then steal the current set texture, which would be a lot of code to add that I am not willing to do! Perhaps I'll add a custom border just for Zombie that looks simple, somewhat like the Apathy skin for Masque?

Also, look at the addon description! /zres locked on
i must admit that i only browse through the description and didnt read the part about "/zres", but i did download the most recent upload you did on 10/8. i'll start over by deleting all the files i have currently including whats in the WTF folder and redownload and install. hope this works, thx.
