DroodFocus

Postby Konungr » Thu Nov 03, 2011 10:17 pm

So it seems that the author of DroodFocus has quit the game, his character no longer exists and he hasn't posted on any of his addon sites in a few months. I have created a thread on the US UI and Macro forums looking for someone to take up the mantle and continue this epic addon, since its functionality can't be replaced by any other addon like BadKitty or PowerAuras. If you use the addon and are interested in trying to keep it alive, even if you don't know anything about addon maintenance, please show your support and keep the topic alive.

Piggy-backing on this post in the hope someone knows, and can explain, if it is possible to move some settings within Drood Focus to reflect the new t13 2 piece set bonus (ie. BiTW now works from 60% hp instead of 25%).
Thanks in advance.

Speaking of Druid Focus, I know on the energy bar you can put up to 6 small marks for various energy measurements. I noticed you have entered values for 5 of them on your UI thread pictures Konungr. Just wanted to know how you arrived at those 5 values? I plugged yours in - I presume hey are X axis pixel distance from the bar anchor? But all of them appear in a small bunch (don't think the values I entered have worked) and now I'm not sure I even want them.

I was thinking of using them for more accurately measuring when to Beserk, or FB. Is that how you mainly use them?

The values are the Spell IDs of the abilities it marks the energy marker for.

I have 5 Arrows and 1 Energy marker.

1822: Rake - 35 Energy
1079: Rip - 30 Energy
5221: Shred - 40 Energy
62078: Swipe - 45 Energy
22568: Ferocious Bite - 50 Energy

The last arrow is a straight line at the 70 Energy mark, which is where you should be pooling energy prior to using an ability, like Shred.

Haha! 30,35,40,45,50. 5 equally spaced markers. So, it IS working. Thanks.

I find it very hard to have the patience to pool much tbh.

So do I, I just try to keep an eye on my timers and if more than 2 things are going to expire at the same time, I pool. Otherwise I'm just spamming Shred, I have twitchy fingers.

Speaking of pooling / capping, I have been having a lot of problems recently when I Berserk and we Bloodlust off the bat. I can't dump the damn energy fast enough it seems. I usually try and Berserk as low as possible so I don't instantly fill the bar, but it's stressful. I think I tried macro'ing a shred after my Berserk so I wouldn't cap, but it doesn't appear to work.

As Berserk is off the GCD is sounds like you're probably using Berserk whilst you're in a GCD such that the macro'd shred doesn't go off.

Hmm...my Berserk is macro'd to TF also. Perhaps that is the issue.

Berserk and TF are off of the GCD so anytime you mash a button that cast them separately or together, they will go off. On the other hand, Shred is on the GCD. Sticking that in a TF/Berserk macro will cause problems if you hit it while in the middle of a GCD as the Shred will not be castable. I would expect TF and Berserk to be applied properly though. You can easily check this on a test dummy - just hit any of your abilities that are on the GCD and immediately follow it with your macro and you will see what happens. Repeat the test but wait until the GCD is complete and it should work.

Question about DroodFocus & Kiril, Fury of the Beasts:

I've managed to put the stacks of Beast Fury next to the icons of rip, rake, SR etc when they are up. It displays now the number of the stacks present, but I can't get it to display the time left on the icon - can anyone help me with that?
Someday, someone will best me. But it won't be today - and it won't be you.

There are two different Spells, and 3 versions of the weapons, so 6 Spell IDs all together. You also cannot merge them, so you either have 1 Icon that shows either the Time left on the Buff and the Cooldown, 1 Icon that shows the number of Stacks you have, or both. I chose to have the timer icon (Fury of the Beast), since I have a classtimers module that shows the number of stacks.

Beast Fury (SpellIDs: 109863;109860;108016) are the stacks of the buff, which have no timer or iCD.
Fury of the Beast (SpellIDs: 109861;108011;109864) are the standard buff that includes the 20 second timer and is on the 55 second iCD.

Like I said, because ElvUI has ClassTimers right above my frames that show the number of stacks, I chose to put Fury of the Beast on my icon bar.

I am aware of that. I've got the icd on the right side along berserk and other longer CDs, and the stacking effect on the left part with rip, rake and the rest. I can make that stacking buff to display, well, the stacking effect - but I can't put the timer on it once it reaches ten stacks. And that's what I'd like to achieve.

Halp?

PS Sadly I posses the LFR version of the polearm, but smart use of wowhead helps you to get the right spell ID.

It's not possible AFAIK since the stacking buff doesn't have a time limit or CD, it's tied into Fury of the Beast.

And you can't force the droodfocus just to start the countdown from 10 to 1 when it reaches ten stacks? Shame :(
