About Acherus Runes

Description

Enjoy!

Usage

To open the configuration type /ac or /acherus, click on the minimap button, or use a Data Broker display that's compatible with launchers.

Translation Request

I currently need translators to help convert the English in the menus into the following languages:

  • French
  • Korean
  • Latin American Spanish
  • Russian
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Spanish
  • Traditional Chinese

Go to the localization page if you'd like to translate. It's open to anyone with an account. Curse has a system setup so that phrases can be translated very fast and easily with no manual editing of files. Thanks!

FAQ

Acherus uses tons of memory / cpu!

This is just because it starts with "A" and is loading first in your setup, and getting blamed for all the resources used in shared libraries by all your addons. If you're concerned you can test by installing standalone versions of the libraries, especially Ace3. It's normal though; some addon always gets blamed for the shared libraries. It's not a real problem.

What was AcherusLoader?

AcherusLoader was a folder in older versions that helped the addon load only on Death Knight characters. Newer versions handle this differently. Now, if you forget to manually disable Acherus on a non-DK, it will disable itself. You can delete the old AcherusLoader folder if you still have it.

    Addon Fix

    I completely fixed it following Leetar advise:

    Open Acherus/Deseases.lua

    Line 43: replace spellids below with the following ids:

    59879, -- Blood Plague
    59921, -- Frost Fever
    81132, -- Scarlet Fever

    Line 116: Comment the line (--) or delete it (the talent does not exist anymore):

    --self:CountEpidemicPoints()

    Line 109: maxtime = 30


    Line 270: if maxtime ~= 30 then self:UpdateDiseaseBar () end


    And fixed! It works great!

    Is there any fix for the bright yellow bars? That section of the UI is greyed out, so I can't change the texture of the bars, and it's pretty glaringly bad.

     

    Like everyone else here, this is my absolute favorite add-on for runes. I used it years ago, and when i re-upped I looked for it. I'm sad to see it's not being updated, but I hope someone who knows what they're doing can continue to provide fixes!

    When in my first time downloading it here, to get it working properly, I just need to do what you said above?

  • #108

    Great plugin, but I can't seem to locate the Diseases timeline bar, and yes, it's enabled. Ideas?

  • #110

    Chek out other replies to the post :p

  • #111

    Well, thanks, but are there any up-to-date fixes for the minimap and blizzard rune frame issues?

  • #107

    Does this addon have an icon to show when your pet is up?  Pretty sure it did, i used to see a cd showing how long before my pet died. So i could time my pet sac if id not used it yet.

     

    Just been rejigging my ui today, and it doenst seem to be there anymore

    It's unquestionable, that this is the best rune add on ever, whether it's customization or being visually pleasing. Honestly my DK wouldn't be as fun to play without this.

    I SERIOUSLY hope this add on updates itself in the near future and continues running for a long time.

  • #104

    Have to agree, would love to see this get updated.

  • #103

    Any chance this is getting updated for 5.0.4 ? i have graphical problems where the texture around my bars which show me my runes comming off cooldown is a bright yellowish color , not cool to look at :/ Please update !!!! This is/was the best dk rune addon for pvp and pve around !

    Line 46: 115798, -- Weakened Blows
    Line 109: maxtime = 30
    Line 270: if maxtime ~= 30 then self:UpdateDiseaseBar () end

    That should make the disease bit work

  • #102

    Fixed the small guide.

    Yes you can either delete or comment out line 116 (better just comment out) but dont delete the whole function.

    Better just follow the provided steps.

    Fixes for MoP 5.0.4

    To make the addon working in MoP 5.0.4:

    All deseases now have 30 secs CD and no epidemic talent anymore:

    Open Acherus/Deseases.lua:

    1. Go to line 43 and replace spellids below with the following ids:

    59879, -- Blood Plague
    59921, -- Frost Fever
    81132, -- Scarlet Fever

    2. Line 116 should look like this (the talent does not exist anymore):

    --self:CountEpidemicPoints()

    3. Line 270 should look like this:

    if maxtime ~= 30 then self:UpdateDiseaseBar() end

    ---

    Hope that helps.

    The minimap icon continues to appear whenever you log in despite having the option to show it disabled. Is there any hope of someone picking up or maintaining this addon?
