About CombustionHelper

The goal of this addon is to allow easy optimizing of the mage talent Combustion. It tracks all relevant Dots on your target, your cooldown of Combustion so you'll be able to use the talent with maximum effectiveness.

To summarize the new talent : it will add a new Dot on effect on your target which will be equal to the sum of Ignite and Pyroblast Dots.

With this addon, you'll know if one of your Dot is missing.

CombustionHelper is composed of the main addon and 2 bundled other addons : CauterizeCooldown and MageBombTracker. Here is their main features :

CombustionHelper main addon:

  • Automatic switch depending if combustion is in your spellbook or not.
  • Autohide out of combat is off by default, use config panel to configure it. You can choose between no autohide, autohide out of combat or autohide when combustion is on cd.
  • Reset variables option because i know some of you like to bug the thing by switching options while in combat/autohide is running and stuff. If you bug it, just reset and log off so you start with a clean state.
  • Option to hide all config messages in chat.
  • Dot tick damage report mode. This is not the expected combustion damage report because of the complexity of ignite, rather an information about how much damage the last tick did so you know if it's powerful enough.
  • Pyroblast/Hot Streak report mode which will warn you when wasted an Hot Streak proc will letting it be refreshed before getting used and at end of combat will report number of refreshed Hot Streak.
  • Timer for Combustion Dot on target.
  • Flamestrike tracker supporting regular flamestrike.
  • Tooltips for option panel settings, no more obscure settings.
  • Ignite munching report, so you know how much damage you lost because of buggy mechanics.
  • Graphical options so you can make it the way you want.
  • Localisation in English, Deutsch, French and Chinese (feel free to report typos…) (thanks to Hambo and Plueschbaer from MMO-C forums for deutsch version)
  • Threshold option to activate color change of background when Ignite cross the specified value.
  • Audio warning when ignite value reach the threshold.
  • Combustion tick damage and number prediction.
  • Missing Pyromaniac buff warning (who wouldn't want 10% more damage on main nuke ?)
  • Heating Up available warning

CauterizeCooldown :

A simple cooldown showing Cauterize cooldown.

You can change the scale, alpha and Frame level. Also enabled by default a timer like OmniCC/CooldownCount. You can choose to autohide the addon when your cauterize is off cooldown. It will autohide too for classes other than mage. Also feature a customizable warning message which can be outputted to vicinity, party, raid or yell channel. There is also another optional warning when Ice Block is up. You can set whatever SharedMedia sound you want as an alert.

MageBombTracker :

This addon track all the new mage bombs and flamestrike cooldown which will be available in patch 5.0.4 and MoP. Previously bundled with CombustionHelper, it's now available as a stand alone addon. It show them with a list which feature :

  • current target marker
  • target name
  • raid marker
  • time remaining

Other nice features are :

  • Alert when missing a bomb
  • Alert when overwriting a bomb before last tick
  • End of fight report

Fully customisable and lightweight, all you need to monitor your bombs !
Available in English and French for now, submit your translation for more.


Changes from 2.xx versions ?

  • No more crit debuff tracking, it's gone for mages.
  • No more support for FrostFire Bolt, useless for Combustion and i doubt anyone used it.
  • No more Impact support, new inferno blast replaced aura procs.

Use Interface Panel -> Addons for full config or /combustionhelper for bringing up directly the option panel.
As always, report me bugs and requests.

Donation is totally optional but all funds will be used to buy chocolate for my wife so she'll be a bit less mad at me spending so much time coding.

    Any chance we can get the Ignite number estimation out of the frame? Like MyBigIgnite does but that does not predict, only goes from the first tick. I want it bigger without making the frame huge. Most of the frame does not need to track numbers, it's just a visual estimation that can be tiny. But the Ignite number prediction is usefull to be seen. Even if there is a threshold color system.

    Is there a way to track it from an external addon like weakauras?

  • #433

    next version will have a modular graphical view, you could choose different view, one being focused on ignite and stuff, it should suit you.

  • #431

    Yeah seems Altoholic is the problem for it not showing up when u log out and back in. Not sure why but thats the problem 


  • #426

    This might have been asked already, but I've noticed that when my Ignite threshold is reached (Currently set for 15k), and my CH goes green and makes a bunch of noise, when I click on Combustion, the actual applied combustion to the mob is always about half of what the ignite was.

    So for example,  I'm blasting the crap outta Morchok, and BOOM!  My CH goes green!  22k Ignite with LB up, PB! up.  HURRY!  Click Combustion!  I do.  YAY! right?  Nope... The tool tip for the DoT on Morchok says 8k as the DoT going out. 

    Am I missing something?

  • #427

    Ignite report does not equal to combustion damage. the latest beta (2.10) have combustiontick prediction, which should be accurate. I'm also correcting the ignite predicter to get it more accurate when potential munching occur.

  • #429

    Thanks.  I was doing some more research on what the ignite value really represents and I'm still a bit lost, but at least I understand that part, that it isn't representative of the Combustion ticks. 

    Thank you for all your hard work on this project.  It's really helped my fire mage take advantage of Ignite.

  • #424

    When I load the addon, no graphics window appears, but the text alerts are working. If I reset it, the window appears in the middle of the screen, but once I configure it and reload the UI it disappears again. This happens whether it is loaded by itself or not.

    *Later* tried the line " /run CombustionFrame:SetPoint("CENTER", UIParent, "CENTER" ,0,0)" from below; no joy...

    Can you try disabling all addons but CombustionHelper to check for incompatibilities ? If it works that way, post me a list of your addons, please.

    np, don't hesitate to come back if anything change.

  • #428

    OK, I'm not sure what to report here. To start, I disabled Ackis Recipe List, Atlas, AtlasLoot, and Altoholic. Bing, CombustionHelper window appears and does not disappear after reloading or restarting the game. A-ha!, thinks I.

    Started re-enabling those addons one by one, testing each as above, and actually using them to make sure they were resident in memory. CH window does not go away. Jim is perplexed.

    Also switched from Fire to Arcane spec- when I was Arcane, MageManaHelper activated, CH deactivated. When I switched back to Fire spec, CH activated, MMH deactivated. Correct behavior I believe.

    Upshot is I'm not sure what to tell you. I'm going to go quest for a while to see if I activate something that causes the window to disappear....

    More later (I'll edit this post and add what happened).

    *Later*   Still working. Apparently unloading/loading those addons reset "something". I dunno, but working fine now, so it's Emily Littella time...sorry to have bothered you :-/

    Heya, im having a slight problem with a sudden appearance of a lil box in the middle of the screen.

    My questions is, What is that ? O.o and how do i remove it or move it

    Thanks for a great addon

  • #423

    type /combustionhelper to access the option panel, then click on the little red plus to expand the options and then in the cauterize cooldown panel, just disable it.

  • #421

    yes i mean when i go pvping, is easier to locate by color than by name

  • #419

    i wonder if somehow could you put the bars in their respective class colors, I think could be more readable

  • #420

    you mean when pvping ? and are you talking about the living bomb monitor bars ?
