About GridStatusAurasExt

This addon tries to complete base grids aura tracking capabilities. It adds Aura groups (one status, multiple auras), auras by spell ID, "only theirs", "all (of one group) missing" and more to possibly come.

What it can do

  • one status for a number of auras (eg. list of boss debuffs)
  • show "only mine" or "only their" auras
  • show certain debuff types (magic, poison, etc) where you can add auras to exclude from (eg. "Frostbolt")
  • show missing buffs/buffgroups (eg. show if "Powerword: Fortidude" or "Prayer of Fortitude" is missing)
  • show auras of the targetted mob of a unit (e.g. for purging purposes)
  • provides option templates for common use cases like "Missing buffs" or "Debuff types" to make configuration easier

How to use

  1. Under "Grid->AurasExt" add a new aura group by giving it a name using one of the "New xxx" text boxes (I recommend to use one of the template version if you use this addon the first time, "Simple aura group" for example). This will create a new status for this aura group under "Grid->Status".
  2. Configure the new status how you want. The options for a aura group status being displayed depends on the template you used. The templates renames some options as well as hiding some by giving them the value needed for that template. You can always change the template used for an aura group under "templates". If you change the template to "none" you will be able to see all settings available as well as how the previous template has set them. If you change back to an actual template only the options which have to have certain values for this template will be changed (the same options will be hidden by the template), everything else will stay the same.
  3. At last register the status under "Grid->Frames" with one of the indicators.

GridStatusAurasExt: updated toc

    Is it missing the function of standard Grid auras where you can chose what status information to be shown in the color & text or am I missing it? ("Present or missing" / "Stack Count" / "Time Remaining").

    Currently can't show time remaining on my buffs added in auras extended, it simply shows up in the text indicators as the spell name. (and with the default Grid auras I 'm unable to add the spell ID sadly).

    While I'm uncertain if this is the right place to ask for this, I'm going for it.

    This addon is very very good and does make life easier on many levels, but there is on small feature missing that in my opinion would fit very well with what the addon does. That would be to allow groups to be shown only while the player is of a certain class/spec.

    The most basic example of this would be that I'm only interested in seeing if "Missing Buff Stamina" is on when I'm a Warrior or Priest. Otherwise I don't really care. 

    I realize that this might not be easily added, but I do think that it would be an amazing addition to the addon.

    You can simply use different Profiles of Grid for that purpose. You can even Tell Grid to load a different Profile when switching specs.

    Honestly I'd prefer the functionality in AurasExt, since I cannot really see what other statuses I'd wanna filter. And having everything is the same place seems nice. :)

    Ok. I see your point. Is this an option you only need for GridStatusAurasExt or would it be useful for other Grid addons too? If the later I would add this option to GridStatusControlPipes instead of GridStatusAurasExt itself.

    While I can use different profiles, that means that whenever I change something I need to remember exactly what I changed, how I did it and then implement that change on all chars.

    I'm trying to use the same profile for all chars, and overall it works, but there are a few exceptions, mainly regarding what is dispelable by class/spec and stuff like weakened soul/forbearance.

    Keeping 5+ profiles equally updated when they differ only in a few areas is a bit of a timewaste + errorprone, but I haven't found any extention that solves it. Your addon is by far the closest though.

    I made a group and put in all crowd control debuffs I know by name, that a priest can cleanse. The problem is some of these crowd control effects have more than one effect, for example Psychic Horror has a magic stun and a physical disarm component. Now for a priest it is only possible to cleanse the stun. Both effects have the same name "Psychic Horror" but different types (magic and physical).

    Would it be possible to add an option like the debuff type, as an additional condition whether the status triggers?

    A workaround for my problem would be to use aura IDs and not names, but then I would have to put in every ID for each possible rank to really be sure all is covered.
