Am I wrong in assuming that it is now possible to find out everything there is to know about your arena opponents just like you would a target frame or a focus frame?
Neat.. lets get some really nice stuff implemented here.
I see why you have it set up as you do - immunity > CC > rest. The only thing I would change here is this: by default, CC should be prioritized over everything else. Why? Because immunity will remove the CC debuff by default, and CC is sort of overriding. There isn't too much else that needs to be critically tracked, and anything that does need to be critically tracked would be rather meaningless if the target is CC'd anyway.
Good implementation. Changing the defaults on your end would go a long way. I'll keep you updated if I find any spells you forgot to put in the tracking area.
True, I'll change the default priorities. But what about buffs such as innervate etc, wouldn't you want those shown in priority over ccs? Now I can't think of a very good example but say you frost nova a druid and he casts innervate, if frost nova would have higher prio you wouldn't see the innervate being cast (unless you have him targeted/other addons ofc).
Target of target
I would make a second class icon frame to the right of each gladius frame, and simply put the class that each player is targetting. Maybe space it out a bit, or put a red border around it to indicate that it is the target. Avoids the name problem and still identifies targets easily. Forget mana/health for ToT, no need because its your party.
Anything more would make the frames too clunky and it would become like that crappy AUF addon :\.
I like the idea! But what about if you're running say, rogue rogue? Class icon + optional name perhaps?
Other random things
Mana bars should be displayed as numbers rather than percentages to identify Ret/Enh etc. Same for energy/runic power/rage.
I'll make it optional in a future version (probably the next thing I'll work on if nothing critical pops up).
Does this addon find stealthed enemies before they appear, or simply allow you to click on their names after they appear? I.e. can you know whether its Mage/Rogue or Rogue/Rogue from the get go? Just curious.
Not unless they stealth just as the gates have opened.
Take off the Race, no need to know that and it frees up space.
Thought it'd be good to have to have it there incase you wanna know what racials you're up to. Well, obviously you can identify the race yourself, but it makes it faster. It's an optional text anyhow
What about DK runes? Is that measurable using the arena IDs? If so, maybe put rune icons on top of the mana bar if its a DK. You don't really need to know that much, just basically how many Frost he has up (CoI) and how many Death he has up (burst).
I'm not sure how runes are working. However it'd be impossible for me to implement now seeing as I do not have a beta account to test it on, but once I have a death knight created I can start testing stuff. I can almost guarantee though, that something (if possible) will be done until WotLK S1.
Possibly a bindable key to target a designated target? Like anyone in grp can designate "swap target" at any time (thru some UI button or something), and then anyone can click a button and they all acquire the target he designated? So like, part 1 would be someone on your team mousing over a target and clicking some keybind, like R or something. Then part 1 is everyone else on the team clicks another keybind and they all target whoever the first guy picked.
Hmm, that'd probably be possible but it'd require syncing. Not sure if I'm going to add this, people use vent anyhow. You can actually bind Gladius targets in bindings if you haven't seen it tho.
Possibly synergy with other addons? I.e. dot/disease tracking optional, CoT/Slow tracking etc on the side? Seems like this could go overboard, but if its optional I wouldn't mind tracking the durations on my Scorpid and Serpents and stuff .
For CoT/Slow I suggest to just add another debuff to auralist.lua and give it an appropriate priority. I'm not really sure how to add it showing tons of buffs and debuffs without making it take up a shitload of space and look bad. Paint a picture or something if you've got a nice idea
Maybe a # of dispellable buffs number somewhere, to see if a target is "clean" yet?
Sounds great but where?
Second focus target? "Gladius target", takes Arena IDs and makes it into a full frame with buffs and everything displayed normally, shrug..
This is something I'm really interested in, would be quite cool. Would probably do it as a second addon "Gladius Focus" or similar tho.
Overall, super sweet addon.
Thank you and thank YOU for making up all these sweet suggestions, really helps!
