About GladiusEx

GladiusEx is an arena unit frames addon based on Gladius.

What's new

New features include:

  • Party frames: support for showing frames for your own team
  • Cooldown tracker: a highly configurable module for tracking all types of cooldowns
  • Skill history: shows the icons of the last few skills used by the unit
  • Alerts: makes the frames blink in a noticeable way during some configured events (including low health, auras and specific spells being cast)
  • Pets: new module for displaying pet bars

And the classic modules, most of which have been improved in various ways:

  • Auras: now with more filtering options
  • Class Icon: new display modes: by spec, role and portraits
  • Cast Bar: now shows which spells can't be interrupted
  • DR Tracker: track the diminishing returns timers on both the enemy team and your team
  • Health Bar: now displays incoming heals and absorbs
  • Tags: configure every text to show exactly what you want, now with more built-in tags and improved performance


How do I bring the user interface up ?

You can use the /gex slash command, or you can access the options from the addons tab in the interface panel.

Where did the trinket and the dispels modules go ?

They have been replaced by the cooldowns module, which now allows you to have several groups of cooldowns configured independently. By default, the trinket cooldown is shown in group 2 and a few other cooldowns in group 1.

What is that additional set of frames that I see ?

Those are the party frames. This is incremental functionality that will help you track not only your enemies but also your friends. If you use your own you can turn these easily off in the general settings.

Is it possible to have text timers for the auras, cooldowns or the DR icons ?

The timer module has been removed, but this can be achieved with OmniCC or other similar addons.

    There will be an update coming soon™. You can grab the current alpha if you want to keep up with the progress, but expect a lot of broken stuff until a new version is tagged.

  • #163

    Same here!

  • #160

    I'd like there to be an option to be able to freely move cast bars. I would like to move them to the left of the class icon kinda of the default arena frames, but I can't move them more than 100 pts to the left. Is there a way to do this?

  • #161

    You should be able to type any number in the text box (instead of using the slider).

  • #159

    Hi, I got 2 problems. One is that i cant use ure party bar outside off arena,

    The scond is that even tho i use the arena frames and in blizzards standard option dissable the standard arena bars they still show.

  • #158

    Best addon ever.

    If i had the option, i'd use the party frame instead of any other raid frames... for pve. Bet many other ppl think alike.


  • #157

    I would definetely use this addon if it had the option to disable the enemy arena frame. I just want the party frame, and use the default blizzard frame for the enemies. Sadly, I can only disable the party frame :(

  • #155

    Hi, just popping by to let you know that the disperse CD is wrong. It is listed as 105 seconds when in reality it is 120 sec.

  • #154

    i'm not quite sure whether or not this exists as i just installed the addon and i won't be able to test it anytime soon.

    the question:

    does it hide blizzards arena/party frames automatically when entering arena? if not, could you implement this option when the corresponding modules are activated?
