Ellipsis (indicating omission)
Typography - A mark consisting of three periods, colloquially known as 'dot-dot-dot'.
Type /ellipsis in the chat window to configure this mod after installation.
Ellipsis is an addon that features multi-target DoT and HoT tracking for spells that you cast on other people. It has support for all classes and can additionally be configured to track Cooldowns as well. Access the GUI by typing '/ellipsis' or by going to the WoW Main Menu, then Interface, then the Addons tab and selected Ellipsis from the AddOn list on the left; contained here are a rather large number of options to configure pretty much all aspects of the display (and a few functionality based options as well).
DoT's & HoT's
Ellipsis scans your target and focus for spells you can cast (as well as your pet's target and your group mates targets should you have either); and once found, it makes a timer for it. Timers are seperated onto their respective targets using the GUID identification system to provide full accuracy in determination of what goes where. Ellipsis additionally tracks your pets spells when cast on targets, tracks 'multi-target' spells like AoE's, and if your a shaman provides tracking of totem durations as well. You can also setup notifications (both audio and visual) for when your dots fade or are broken ahead of time.
Ellipsis also features a fairly minimal totem tracking ability. It will track totem durations no matter what happens to them when replaced, or destroyed early and you have a built-in option to ctrl click on a timer to cancel the associated timer as well.
Ellipsis can also create cooldown timers on a single exponentially growing bar for spells, pet abilities and item (including worn equipment) usage. The maximum cooldown duration to track can be set as well as the ability to block certain timers from appearing and the bar itself can be set to show varying sizes of timescale. In regards to its exponential nature, this means that a timer will countdown quicker the nearer it gets to the '0' end of the scale (eg, it will cover the same distance between 0-10 seconds as it will between 11-60 seconds on the base timer display).
There are two 'mods' included with Ellipsis, the main mod itself (folder: Ellipsis) and the congfiguration options (folder: Ellipsis_Options). Only the first is required to use the mod, though you will not be able to change options without the latter; Ellipsis_Options is also Load on Demand and thus won't use up any resources until you begin changing options (which is also why its a seperate folder/addon).
On first install (or a new character/profile), the 'anchors' for both Targets and Prominent Targets (text on a light blue background) will be visible. After you move them to their desired locations, you need to enter the mod options and "Lock" the interface elements to hide these anchors otherwise there will be some overlap with the actual mod targets.
- ToC Update for 5.1
Fixed bug related to raid marking causing a LUA error.
Fixed a bug introduced in the patch that caused Cooldown parsing to crash the mod.
Updated For Mists of Pandaria Beta
Positioning of anchors and the cooldown bar are now saved to profiles (they will finally be placed appropriately when changing profiles). They will need to be manually repositioned on first load after install due to this change.
Many speed and optimization improvements.
Updated ClassData for new MoP abilities.
Embedded a full range of Statusbar textures for those who do not have them available from elsewhere.
Updated TOC for 4.3
Fixed (long-standing) bug with Cooldown bar showing when not wanted. To hide the bar just disable tracking of all 3 cooldown types, the bar will hide itself once all tracked cooldowns have expired (if any).
Updated TOC for 4.2
Added minimum duration options for auras and cooldowns (set in seconds as opposed to minutes like the maximums)
Fixed spell cooldown groups showing the wrong icon for Hunter Traps and Shaman Shocks (they were flipped)
Cleaned up tooltips and made it more clear when mouseover options are disabled by the 'Clickable' option
Still To Do: For those who are able and willing, the following strings need translating in all available languages other than English (if you have a translation, please PM me it and the language it's in).
L.MinAuraDuration = 'Min Aura Duration'
L.MinAuraDurationDesc = 'Set the minimum duration of auras (in seconds) that will be tracked by Ellipsis.'
L.MaxAuraDurationDesc = 'Set the maximum duration of auras (in minutes) that will be tracked by Ellipsis.\n\nA setting of 0 will disable max duration checking, allowing auras of any duration.'
L.CDMinDuration = 'Min CD Duration'
L.CDMinDurationDesc = 'Set the minimum duration of cooldowns (in seconds) that will be tracked by Ellipsis.\n\nThis setting will not go below 2 seconds so as to avoid all cooldowns showing up due to the GCD.'
L.CDMaxDurationDesc = 'Set the maximum duration of cooldowns (in minutes) that will be tracked by Ellipsis.\n\nA setting of 0 will disable max duration checking, allowing cooldowns of any duration.'
Fixed a glitch with mages due to Water Elemental now being a permanent or nothing pet. Removed coding checking for the existance of the Water Element talent.
