About GridStatusChainHealTarget


This addon is an attempt to make Chain Heal worth casting again, by marking the target that will generate the most Chain Heal jumps and has the most health deficit, to minimize overhealing and maximize effectiveness.

Features and Limitations
  • Makes a prediction of the jumps made by Chain Heal and sets a status on the most effective target to cast it on, based on the number of jumps and health deficit of the targets.
  • Will only set the status if there is an effictive target to cast Chain Heal on, to make sure you always hit as many targets as possible with minimal overhealing.
  • Configurable thresholds for health percentage and the minimum number of times Chain Heal must jump, for a target to be considered effective.
  • Ability to display status for lower priority targets, that will be hit by Chain Heal jumps if casted on the suggested target, using a configurable color.
  • Supports text (number of jumps), icon (spell icon) and standard indicators.
  • Configurable update frequenzy.
  • Only works in zones with a map.

This project is a fork and rewrite of Slaren's GridStatusChainBest, using a different approach that I think suits the Cataclysm healing style better.

    Tks for the addon. Works great and now im casting CH again. I use it on border.
    Does it consider the riptide bonus on CH?
    Its good to cast CH on a targuet whos riptide is about to wear off. I tried to set riptide aura on center text 2 but it just show me "riptide" and not the duration. I dont think that riptide icon will work couse its hard to see the duration and i use icons to debuffs and raid icons.
    Do u have any idea on how to show riptide duratio on grid text? That would be great with GridStatusChainHealTarget.

    In the current version it doesn't consider the riptide bonus. Might do it in a future version, it's a good idea.
    To display the duration of Riptide and other HoTs, you need the GridStatusHots module for Grid. You find it here:

    Tks napraptor
    GridStatusHots (riptide) on text2 and GridStatusChainHealTarget on border is working great to me. Now its not so hard to reach 10k HPS on 10 man. But some times i dont know if i should cast CH on the expiring riptide or on GridStatusChainHealTarget.
    Im looking foward for that version considering riptide bonus. And if it also consider the duration of riptide (maybe giving customizeble weigth for the duration on the math) im sure GridStatusChainHealTarget will be a must have mod for resto shamans in Cata.
  • #4
    Just to add on this, there are three things that we think about when targetting chain heal
    1. Does the target have earthshield on it?
    2. Does the target have riptide on it?
    3. Does the target have a talent which increases healing received (field dressing, spark of life, etc)

    I love the addon but I'm not really clear on how it works yet and it takes in consideration to light up red or light up orange. I think if I clearly understand those, I would have an easier time decided where and when to target my CH.

    One other thing I forgot was the CH major glyph.
