About CooldownCount

This addon displays a large yellow number (and text for numbers > 60 seconds) on spell icons for action bars, bags, character sheet, and quest icons in the tracker. Font can be modified, and the cut-off for how long a cooldown needs to be in order to display on the button can also be changed. The number begins flashing when time remaining is less than 10 seconds.

This is an update for WoW >= 3.3.5 compatibility since 4.0's new API nuked some of the code here. The original addon was created by hshh and the compatibility has been fixed by TheCheat5 and Kiki.

Additional Note: Tested and confirmed working after dependency update for Patch 6.0.2

    I like this one, I would however love it if there was an option to toggle the blinking of the red warning text, so that it would simply change from yellow to just red without the blinking ;)


    P.S. Works well with both "Bartender4" and "Button Forge" (for me at least).

  • #86

    Thanks for the addon :)
    Will you be able to see in the expansion seconds?
    Will it be possible to change the font itself that like?

    Please update this!

    Nice addon I love it but while i was playing on my hunter I relizes that if you use the spell readiness your spells are still counting down but you can use them . You may have already knew this but I just wanted to make sure you knew so you could fix it :)

    fire mage combustion/Inferno blast

    Hi, great add-on.

    Just FYI; in 5.04 the fire mage spell Combustion resets the cooldown on the new spell Inferno Blast but this is not taken into account by the add-on, which still shows what would have been the remaining cooldown on the icon.

    Hi there,

    This is a great add-on. I only got 1 question. I got the Searing Totem on my action bar which I need to refresh every 60 seconds. Is it possible to show this as a countdown as well?

    I noticed the post from the hunter and in the same line I removed "TotemFrame", but that did not do the trick for me :(

    Thanks in advance for any answer.

  • #80

    i have it downloaded but its not working and its not on my addon list nothing what do i do?


  • #78

    Will this work with Star Wars:The Old Republic?

  • #76

    great addon , but i think it's a little bug when a cooldown refreshes out like colossus smash for me , it says it's on a 20 sec cd but it's not , hope you will fix that , thanksCool

  • #74

    good Addon. but it would be nice if CDs of HUNter pets ability are added .

  • #75

    They should be displayed.

    Maybe it's a frame blacklisted.

    Go to your interface folder (<wow>/Interface/AddOns/CooldownCount/)  and open CooldownCount.lua with a text editor (wordpad.exe for example), and replace the 7th line from

    local blacklist = { "TargetFrame", "PetAction", "TotemFrame", "PartyFrame", "TargetofTargetFrame", "FocusFrame", "RaidFrame" }


    local blacklist = { "TargetFrame", "TotemFrame", "PartyFrame", "TargetofTargetFrame", "FocusFrame", "RaidFrame" }

    Save the file, and restart wow.

    Tell me if it works.

  • #77

    It works now! THankyou =D

  • #72

    There is a problem with the CD timer for rogues. When you pop preparation, it will remove the immediate cooldown on the spell. Yet it will still show the cooldown timer on that spell. You can still click the spell and use it again but still.

    I've noticed the same thing with a glyphed Shadow Word: Death that failed to kill a target below 25% and all my mage CDs on the Murozond encounter after the hourglass is used, but the cooldown properly resets on my druid's starsurge when the shooting stars buff activates.
