About CDTracker

1. Intro

This is a simple, easy-to-use class cooldown/buff/debuff tracker. The original idea is to track the many cooldowns my hunter has since MoP. I'm sure that there are many great addons that can finish this task, but most of them didn't match my specific requirement, or maybe too complicated for me to use. All I need is just a simple track addon, which allows me to put several important cooldown/buff/debuff to my class together somewhere on my screen to watch, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who has this idea. So, I wrote this addon. I hope it will help other people who has the same requirement as me, too.

3. F.A.Q.

3.1 How does CDTracker Work?

CDTracker is a simple, easy-to-use cooldown/buff/debuff tracker addon. It's basic idea is simple: allows you to easily customize up to 8 imporatant cooldown/buff/debuff that you wish to track, and put them together somewhere on your screen to watch. To use it, you will want to set up what you want to tracker first. You can find in-game options in Interface->Addon->CDTracker->Cooldown Options.

3.2 Does it have any slash command?

You can use "/cdt" or "/cdtracker" to open option panel.

3.3 Why can't I find some particular cooldown/buff/debuff in options?

There are multiple reason. Following are possible things that you may want to check.

  1. Does your spell have a cooldown? It won't be listed if it doesn't have a cooldown, or a "valid" cooldown (means, not more than 1.5 sec).
  2. Have you or your current pet (if it's a pet spell) learned the spell yet? Or do you have the pet who knows the spell summoned? It won't be listed if you or your current pet doesn't know it. This is because some lists are too long to show completely (e.g. Hunter's pet abilities).
  3. Are you looking for the correct name? For example, some buff may have different names than the spell who triggers them (e.g. Warrior's [Sunder Armor], it triggers a debuff called [Weakened Armor]. And some abilities may even trigger more than one buff).
  4. Some spells may replace a previous known spell. In that case, you will want to look for the new spell name.
  5. If you still can't find what you are looking for, you can use Customize Tracking Item to add it manually. I also appreciate if you can report to me on Curse.com or Wowinterface.com so that I can fix it as soon as possible.

3.4 I set up buffs to track, but why didn't they show up?

  1. Buff/debuff won't show up until you/target/pet gains it, depends on what buff/debuff are you tracking.
  2. Some spells may replace a previous known spell and change the buff name it triggers. In that case, you will want to look for new buff name in options.

3.5 How do I used Customize Tracking Item?

Customize Tracking Item allows you to track cooldown/buff/debuff which is not listed, such as item proc, boss fight buff/debuff, etc. To use it,

  1. Type in spell/buff/debuff name that you wish to track.
  2. Indicate its type. If it's a buff/debuff, you should also indicate it's target and source.
  3. In tracking option list, choose "Customized".

CAUTION: Source "None" means it won't check buff source. This usually is ambiguous, and only used for boss fight buff/debuff or enchant proc.

3.6 How can I contact you?

If you wish to report bug or have suggestion, please leave me a message on Curse.com or Wowinterface.com. Thank you!

    This is far and away my favorite add on, but I have one issue. I mainly only play arena and need to change things on the fly quite often.

    Would it be possible to either add profiles that could be switched between, or, preferably, track by talent tier so it switches automatically when the talent is changed?

    Thanks for a great tool either way!

  • #17

    Thank you for your suggestion! I might actually do profile. I've been having that idea for a while but been busy. Thanks again for using CDTracker and hope you enjoy it :)

  • #14

    Dark Soul works great!  Thanks for being so responsive.  Any way to get more than 8 slots?

  • #15

    Sorry so far it's just 8 slots :(    I might make it customizable in future patch...

  • #7

    can you add "Rapture" preist healing =)

  • #9

    You mean the cooldown of mana refund effect?

     

  • #6

    I like this addon so far!  I'm not seeing the Dark Soul buffs for Warlocks which is the one I'd really like if possible.  They come in three flavours...

    Affliction - Dark Soul: Misery

    Destruction - Dark Soul: Instability

    Demonology - Dark Soul: Knowledge

    Fixed in 5.2.03. Thanks for report! Enjoy! :D

    Hmm that's weird. I'm pretty sure they worked last time I check. I'll check it again as soon as I got back. Thank you!

    BTW are you a physicist? lol  "Flavours" sounds like they way we talk about quark :D

    Lol nope not a physicist.  I wonder what a quark flavour would taste like though?  :P

    XD It's actually just a way to categorize quarks, not actual "flavour". You see physicists are actually very romantic. They didn't know how to name those strange categories, so they call them "flavour" "color". It's simple and fun to talk that way XD

    About the problem you report, I just checked wowhead and seems like I made a mistake about how they work. They must work like mage bomb. I blame my tester friend who didn't report this to me... LOL jk I'll fix it as soon as I got back. Thank you for report XD
