RaidCooldowns Display  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

by: tsigo [More]

RaidCooldowns came about after a guild leader complained that oRA2 didn't track all of the raid cooldowns he wanted to know about, and those it did track were unreliable because not everyone ran oRA2. It consists of two separate addons.

NOTE: This addon requires RaidCooldowns, located here


RaidCooldowns_Display is a highly customizable bar display of your raid's cooldowns. It tracks Rebirth, Reincarnate, Shield Wall, Blood Lust, Innervate, Divine Intervention, Soulstone, and many others. Adding a new cooldown to track is generally no more than one line of code. Most of the time, RCD_Display will track cooldowns via combat log events. However, some spells can't be tracked this way due to limitations in the WoW API. For those spells - Rebirth, Reincarnate, Divine Intervention and Soulstone - RaidCooldowns_Display can receive syncs from members running either oRA2 or RaidCooldowns.


RaidCooldowns is a lightweight method of syncing those cooldowns that can't be detected via the combat log. It's a good alternative if you have a stingy Druid who doesn't want to run the entire oRA2 package just so you can know his Rebirth cooldown. Better still, RaidCooldowns will broadcast to both RCD_Display and oRA2, so people running oRA2 but not RCD_Display aren't left out of the loop.

As of today, it tracks the following spells:

  • Druid: Nature's Swiftness, Rebirth, Innervate, Challenging Roar
  • Hunter: Misdirection, Feign Death
  • Mage: Counterspell, Ice Block
  • Paladin: Divine Shield, Blessing of Protection, Divine Intervention
  • Priest: Pain Suppression, Fear Ward
  • Rogue: Cloak of Shadows, Kick, Distract
  • Shaman: Bloodlust/Heroism, Nature's Swiftness, Reincarnation, Fire Elemental Totem, Earth Elemental Totem, Mana Tide Totem
  • Warlock: Soulstone Resurrection, Soulshatter
  • Warrior: Shield Wall, Last Stand, Pummel, Challenging Shout

Keep in mind that you can hide any spells you don't care about. Personally I only show about seven of the spells listed above.

I think this will be ideal for people who either want a more customizable cooldown display, or just a greater number of spells. Type '''/rcd''' for options.

I don't get this mentality, although I've seen it repeatedly. Can't the addon just sync if it can, and if it can't, assume that people's cooldowns are available when they walk into the instance? Then it's just a matter of tracking the combat log for when the cooldowns are popped and using that to gauge the cooldown time remaining.

Is there any current feature or upcoming addition to allow announcements when cooldowns are ready - Either own cooldowns, a whole classes cooldowns, certain cooldowns or all cooldowns (Ie. Raid leader).

Gonna go test this when I have time; It looks awesome so far.

oRA does seem to miss a loooot of things. I'm excited to try this out! Thanks!
