About Critline

Original concept and version by Sordit. Rewritten by Uggh and Feyde, now maintained (and pretty much re-rewritten) by me.

If you are willing and able to provide localization, please head over to the localization page! Any and all translations, reviews and corrections are greatly appreciated.

Critline is an addon that will remember your highest hits and crits (including heals and pet attacks), and display them in a fairly simple tooltip. It sports many features by default, including advanced filtering, a standalone frame, splash on new record and more. All this can be disabled if you just want the basic functionality. Read on for more info!

Spell list

This is where you can review and manage all of your registered spells. On its own it shows the registered records and target. Functionality is added by other modules and is accessed via the menu button on the right hand side of each spell.

Filters, reset and announce modules are dependent on the spell list module.
This module can be disabled by deleting spellList.lua in your Critline folder.


The filter module lets you control which spells you want to register and show, as well as which targets you want to allow.
It comes with integrated aura and mob filters, for those known auras/mobs that may mess up your records. Generally I include anything that boosts your effects by 10% or more. You can also add custom entries.
The module also adds spell filter functionality to the spell list. Enabled spells will be accounted for when records are broken, and will show up in tooltips. Disabled spells are grayed out in the spell list.

This module requires the spell list module.
This module can be disabled by deleting filtersCore.lua and filtersGUI.lua in your Critline folder.


The splash module, when enabled, will display a message on your screen whenever you break a record. You can choose to use the default style, or have the messages make use of your combat text addon of choice.

This module can be disabled by deleting splash.lua in your Critline folder.


The display module allows for easy access to all your records. It will show the normal and crit record of each tree, and when you hover over the frame, it will show you a tooltip with all the records.

This module can be disabled by deleting display.lua in your Critline folder.


The minimap module provides easy access to the options. Right click it to show the config frame, and left click it to toggle the display frame.

This module can be disabled by deleting minimap.lua in your Critline folder.


This module adds announcing functionality to the spell list. This allows you to let people know of your awesome records.

This module requires the spell list module.
This module can be disabled by deleting announce.lua in your Critline folder.


This module adds reset and revert functionality to the spell list. It lets you permanently delete unwanted records, or revert records achieved in the last fight. Records that are eligible for reversion are annotated with green text in the spell list.

This module requires the spell list module.
This module can be disabled by deleting reset.lua in your Critline folder.


This module provides a DataBroker feed for each tree, that shows the records, much like the display module.
You can shift click it to insert your top records into the chat, or click it normally to open the config.

This module can be disabled by deleting Broker.lua in your Critline folder.


This module lets you manipulate how data is stored and presented, and is not for the faint of heart!
With it, you can make spells be regarded as a different spell, sharing its records. You can also have spells appear with a different name or icon, or specify which spell should be presented in a given tooltip. Spell IDs are accepted as the soure spell. Be sure to enable debugging with '/cl debug' to reveal spell IDs in tooltips and debug messages.

This module can be disabled by deleting advanced.lua in your Critline folder.

Aura tracker

This module mainly exists for debugging purposes and does not actually affect the addon in any way.
It registers auras that you and neutral and hostile NPCs have gained, and displays them in a sortable and filterable list. Spell ID and NPC ID of the caster is included.

This module can be disabled by deleting AuraTracker.lua in your Critline folder.


This module allows you to share settings among characters, and manage profiles easily.
The spell profile contains all your spell records, as well as data regarding which trees you are recording.
The "general" profile contains all other settings. This profile is character specific by default.
This way you can use the same general settings (such as functionality and appearance) on all your characters, while still using separate spell databases.

The general and spell profiles are stored separately, and will not collide. For example, you can use the 'Default' profile both for the general and the spell profiles. They are not considered the same. Changes made to the general profile would not affect the spell profile.

This module can be disabled by deleting profiles.lua in your Critline folder. Note that profiles will still be used, you are only disabling the ability to manage them.

- Set Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry bosses to level 103 so they can be properly registered.
- Added a bunch of WoD filtered auras.
- Fix visual bug in aura monitor search box.

    New high damage hits don't register for me if they are overkill hits. So if I hit for 20k but the person only had 2k health left, my hit would count as 2k and it would ignore the other 18k.

    Is there a way to turn on "overkill hits" or is this a bug?

    Thank you!

    Type '/cl debug' to get more info on why hits aren't being registered.

    Critline does not realize all damage done by Obliterate (DK), i did some high crits they are locked in also in the  Combatlog, but Citline just holds the older one. =(

  • #980

    Ah, yeah I've fixed that already. Didn't realise I hadn't pushed the release! Did it now.

    Love this addon!! Nothing beats trying to beat your last record!! I do have a small problem tho, today my little black mini box (the one you click on to show details) disappeared and I can't for the life of me figure out how to reset it =(

    Can you give me some directions? Thanks so much!

    Hi Lombra,

    I didn't know the correct Spell ID, So search for Orb of Power on Wowhead, and copy ALL the spell Ids that they have (9 diferent Spell Ids).

  • #972


    if you're certain you've got the correct spell ID, it should work if the aura is on you. Currently the custom aura filter works only on yourself, which is something I want to change. I'll try to get it in for the next update. That being said, another problem with target auras is that it may not work if the unit were out of range when they gained the aura. What is the spell ID, btw? I'll add it to the integrated filter. :) I've not really done any PvP myself at lv 90, yet.

    Hey, Can someone tell me how to turn off the damage record when I (or my target) have the Orb of Power on temple of kotmogu. I tryed to add the spell Id on the Auras filter, but it didn't work.


  • #969


    I'm guessing demolishers count as PvP units then, but you should be able to add them to the mob filter. I'll see if there's a way to differentiate players from vehicles.

  • #968

    Hey, love the addon! I only PvP so set it to only record PvP however it still records damage you do to demolishers etc, is there a way to turn it off?
