Raid target debuff tracking (a.k.a. "The pDebuffList Thread")
Posted 30 May 2007 - 09:26 PM
However, as a shaman and a raid leader, I don't have any personal debuffs to maintain, but I would like a handy and simple all-in-one solution to tracking the major debuffs on a target -- demo, TC, CoE/CoS/CoR, sunder, Faerie Fire -- letting me know when they're on, and when/whether they fall off. Is there a mod out there that's well-suited to this goal without also flooding me with lots of extraneous information?

It seems like this should be much easier as a result of the 2.1 debuff functionality.

I was honestly expecting something like this to exist already.

You could probably even adjust the ones contained in bars/General.lua for the ones you want to track.

* UPDATED - name, rank, icon, count, debuffType, duration, timeLeft = UnitDebuff("target", i); -- Now returns duration and timeLeft for debuffs you can cast (those with times come first in the list
I don't think a shaman can get the time remaining on a non-shaman debuff. You'd need something to maintain a data sync from all the classes I think.

That's a pain if so, though knowing "is it on or not" without duration would be better than nothing, for sure.
Just for knowing "Is it on", DebuffFilter will suit your needs. Can monitor target or focus (or both) with configurable debuff lists for each.
For timers, you're going to need something that syncs amongst all raid members, and afaik it doesn't exist yet, although it would certainly be a lot easier to write now with the getTime aspect added in 2.1; rather than tracking bars, each raid member simply getTimes all available times, and then syncs time remaining, with a display mod oriented around choosing the debuffs you wish to track.

There is definitely room for a dedicated mod that does nothing else and also adds some other functionality (Quartz style estimated timers would be nice) but this does the trick. Apologies for the excess redundancy of the post.

If Demo/TC/Sunder/CoE/CoS/CoR are on the boss, but FF is not, I want to know that immediately at a glance, since that's really what matters.
Probably not quite what you want but throwing it out there anyways:
Might want to look into PowerAuras (the issue will be the lack of a text display, as I don't think it has an option to display text. That'd be a nice feature for it, though.)
It has a "only in combat" option. You'd have to turn it on and off for raids, however. (I have it tell me when I'm out of range of our elemental shaman's totems, and always need to remember to turn that on each raid night.)
