Whack

Version: 0.7
by: Naitaeti [More]

Whack is an addon for managing the so-called 969 tps/dps rotation for protection paladins by showing a vertical list of spell icons ordered by the cooldown availability and priority.

The addon supports ButtonFacade for beautifying the ability icons and OmniCC can be used for showing the time remaining for the ability to become available.

The plan is to make this addon more generic and support all kinds of rotations and/or overlapping cooldowns for all classes.

Configurable by editing the .lua file.

Inspiration drawn from Questioner over at the Maintankadin forums.

-- Known issues

- Only works for lvl80 prot paladins
- Requires 1/2 imp Judgement
- Will likely show errors if the paladin respecs from prot to ret or holy, and requires an ui reload (but won't show errors) when respecing from ret or holy to prot

-- Changelog

0.7
- Adjust the buff time of Seal of Corruption / Vengeance to 30 minutes

0.6
- Added slash commands for moving and scaling the frame (needs a UI reload to take effect)
- Internal rewrite of parts of the priority code to make it easier to add other classes / specs

0.5
- Fixed the new expiry time not being updated when recasting an ability before the old expiry time is up (i.e. when casting SoCorr before the old buff runs out)

0.4
- Fixed an issue where the buttons would keep updating as if the gcd just expired. This seemed to happen more often when spamming the abilities
- Refactored the code to make it more maintainable

0.3
- Addon name change

0.2
- Properly adhere to the rotation, previous version would show Holy Shield and Consecration as the best ability to use too early

0.1
- Initial version

Toggle would be enough for me. Like

/whack shield on or so

I usually replace a Conc, it is so damn mana intensive anyhow

Yes, that would work. With the new spell checking code I added in my last uploaded version you wouldn't even need the level check, as it checks if the spells in the rotation actually exists in the spell book.

However, I remain unconvinced that the addon should have rotations for levels < 80. But if I ever get around to making the rotation configurable by the user without modifying the lua code then this won't be an issue anymore.

Code:
local level = UnitLevel("player");

if level == 80 then

   -- spells in the rotation at 80                                                                        
   priorities = {
      { spell = corrid, pri = 1, wait = 120 },     -- seal of corr                                        
      { spell = 48952,  pri = 2, wait = 9},        -- holy shield (rank 8)                                
      { spell = 61411,  pri = 3 },                 -- shor (rank 2)                                       
      { spell = 20271,  pri = 4 },                 -- judgement of light                                  
      { spell = 53595,  pri = 5 },                 -- hotr                                                
      { spell = 48819,  pri = 6, wait = 9 },       -- cons (rank 8)                                       
   }

elseif level >= 75 then

   -- spells in the rotation at 75+                                                                       
   priorities = {
      { spell = corrid, pri = 1, wait = 120},
      { spell = 48951,  pri = 2, wait = 9}, -- 75 hs / rank 5                                             
      { spell = 53600,  pri = 3},           -- 75 sor / rank 1                                            
      { spell = 20271,  pri = 4 },          -- judgement of light                                         
      { spell = 53595,  pri = 5 },          -- hotr                                                       
      { spell = 48818,  pri = 6, wait = 9}, -- con rank 7                                                 
   }

You'll need to modify the .lua code. Open the core.lua file in a text editor, look for the two lines close to the top of the file that reads

Code:
local xpos   = 1440
local ypos   = 503
and change the numbers to the X and Y position you want the buttons to be located at. You may have to experiment a bit until you find a suitable location unless you're familiar with your UI scale / geometry and how the X and Y position relates to these, but it isn't hard.

Nice to hear it's useful for other people as well!

Nice addon idea.
I'll really love to see it extended to somehow support dps druid rotation.

Keep the good work ^^
