Macros

Macros are meant for the more advanced users, since you'd need to use "*unit" (short for the UnitID of the enemy) for a macro to work. To cast Polymorph on the enemy and print out the name of the enemy in the party chat you would have to do:

/cast [target=*unit] Polymorph

/script SendChatMessage(UnitName("*unit"), "PARTY")

FAQ

Will you ever have Gladius function in a non-arena environment?

- No, Gladius is meant for arenas only and it'll stay that way.

Can I hide that annoying header ("Gladius - drag to move")?

- Yes, simply lock the Gladius frame.

    Bug report:

    Last version (4.0.5) doesnt show Explosive Trap Glyph DR (category: knockbacks).

  • #727

    Since the trap deals no damage, there is no combat log event to track it when it hits the target.

  • #724

    Gladius completely stops working when I disable health bars... test frames freeze and won't react to any settings changes, when I hide them they wont show ever again until I create a new profile or enable Health Bars again... is it possible to fix this somehow? I'm using another addon for health bars and I just want gladius to show me trinkets, DRs etc... thanks

  • #725

    +1

  • #722

    My Gladius is not showing when a trinket is used or the CD on the trinket

  • #718

    Can you make an extension called Gladius FRIENDLY unit frames for arenas?

    Where it does the same thing for teammates that it does for enemy frames? I can't find any addon that keeps track of important stuff like the time on your healer's current CC, such as polymorph, hex, cyclone, etc. It would be nice to have a visual representation of this instead of relying only on chat. Even the visual trinket cooldown would be nice. 

    I've heard about an older addon named CCtracker doing something like that, or at least showing who's casting CC on whom, but I think it's more for who is breaking your CC. (I remember mages having it way back in the day...)

  • #717

    Am I the only one having trouble with gladius? Reinstalled it at least 10 times, and everytime after 1 or 2 days the same thing happens. In the arena it just doesn't show up anymore and if I try /gladius test or pretty much any command other then /gladius it stays in my chatframe and I can't "enter" it.

  • #721

    Try to create a new profile and use that for a while and check if thats happens again or not, your older profile might be corrupted.

    • Glyph of Explosive Trap konckback dr tracker doesnt work
  • #719

    Gonna be fixed, also the whole Knockbak DR category getting a revamp.

  • #723

    Seems like there is a missing combat log event for this trap, it sadly cannot be tracked untill Blizzard fixes this.

  • #713

    Any plans to ever add true cooldown tracking similar to GladiusEx? Looks like development on that mod has come to a halt and I was always a little surprised that the standard Gladius didnt have some of those features. Being able to see which cooldowns your enemies have available is pretty valuable. Especially with being a fresh expansion and many people having to relearn classes defensive & offensive cooldowns this would be amazing to see easily on the enemy arena frames.

    I've thought about adding this functionality or trying to write an addon since I haven't been able to find any that do this but unfortunately dont have the coding skills and got stumped halfway through.

  • #716

    I am really missing this switching from gladiusex to this addon.

    It's on the todo list, i just don't know when i'll have time for it. I personally use this addon to track cooldowns:

    http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/pvptimer

    The bigger issue is there is not a proper API to track cooldowns for enemy players/group members, and with the mass of the cooldown reduction talents/specs/items/glyphs/haste it's really hard to create proper timers for this.

    Re: Gladius Dr Tracker

    Hey I really need help, I have now been trying to fix the problem with the dr tracker for 2 hours and I am going crazy. The problem with the dr tracker is that it shows the dr to reset on 18 seconds when it in reality is 20 seconds. I tried to follow this link: http://imgur.com/JhOXjKi . I tried setting it to 20 seconds, then I logged back in but it still resetted on 18 seconds, so just to test I tried to change the value to 25 seconds and it was still 18 seconds reset timer on dr. I then just to test deleted the whole Filecase called "DRData-1.0" and logged in again, and the dr tracker was unaffected, nothing had changed. Then I went into Gladius->Modules->DrTracker. And searched the document through with ctrl + f for 18, and I couldn't find any place to change 18 to 20 to fix it.. 

    This is getting really frustrating, I want it to work so much >.< Please help!
