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.

    Sorry to hear that you're one of the few having problems with this free addon. That said, if you have any constructive ideas about resolving this problem, don't hesitate because i'm already out of ideas.

  • #804

    i am also having problems with this addon jumping everywhere. i dont even use the combustion tracker just the mage bomb tracker and it resets its position randomly. even in the middle of a boss fight.

  • #805

    this is the first time i hear about the addon moving during bossfights. Is this for fights which have loading screen inbeweteen ?

    if you don't use the combustion panel, i'd suggest to use rather the standalone version : magebombtracker

    it should be ok for you

  • #810

    Excellent post.  Thank you!  I have had the same issue with the jumping window.  MageBombTracker as a standalone is a simple option which does exactly what is needed.

    This is my first post here; wanted to share how helpful the above comment was to me.  :)

  • #806

    excellent! thank you. i was not aware the components of combustionhelper were packaged seperately. i have tested the standalone and it has not jumped postion at all for me. thanks again.

  • #803

    I'm still having issues with Combustionhelper not staying where I put it.

    I'm using both Combustionhelper and the included magebomb tracker. Whenever I anchor the bombtracker to combustionhelper, they stay where I put them. But as soon as I want to position the bombtracker "free" from combustionhelper, combustionhelper moves up a bit with every reload.

    It happens both when they're locked and when they're unlocked. I've tried reinstalling the addon and deleting all my saved variables but the same thing keeps happening.

    I truely love this addon, but this has been driving me crazy for months now :)

    /edit: it also happens when I disable the included bombtracker. And next to combustionhelper moving, it's also unlocked after every reload. The "lock" checkbox is still ticked, but combustionhelper can be dragged around.

    Yeh I'm having this issue still too. Been hoping an update would come to fix it.

  • #802

    Any Chance to remove the last Tracker which shows "Ignite Dmg and CB UP" or "Combustion UP!" if not in Combat. I dont need that Tracker, it just takes away Space.

    I only need the first Tracker which shows the Ignite DMG and the green Point with the Ignite Time.

    Like in this UI: http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/3804/f35a.jpg

    Sorry if this was already suggested before, but It would be very nice if the tracker became clickable when it turn green (threshold reached) to cast Combustion on the target!

  • #794

    OMG a clicker !

    more seriously i think it would cause more bad than good, especially when dragging the frame and accidentaly popping combustion.

    And it's harder to code than it seems

  • #789

    The main combustion panel keeps creeping vertically up my UI with every login.  I have to keep unlocking and dragging it back down.

  • #795

    So i tried to reproduce the bug with your files and couldn't get it working. Be it by zoning, relogging, quitting, nothing made the window moving up like you're telling me.

    can you try to fraps it ? maybe a bit too much to ask but i'm lost right now

  • #801

    I believe it stays in the same place.

    Also I have seen the mage bomb tracker go to a different spot other then in the video, up to above half way on my screen.

  • #800

    thanks alot vey useful

    one question though, if you do multiples reloadui without touching the addon, does it crawl upwards everytime or stay at the same place ?

  • #799

    Just frapsed this happening to me, seems to happen whenever I reload ui.

    And before you ask, no locking it doesn't help.
