About Hermes


Hermes tracks your raid's cooldowns, and displays them using configurable buttons or bars. What's unique about Hermes is it's ability to tell you who "does" and "does not" have a particular cooldown available. If you're a raid leader, healer, tank or anyone who has to coordinate cooldowns, you'll appreciate the approach Hermes takes.

Hermes also tracks cooldowns of non Hermes users using it's Spell Monitor feature.

Release v2.4.32 Notes

This release is a much more stable release for the 5.0 Mists of Pandaria. I've refactored a lot of the UI code so that managing the spell list requirements and adjustments can be done via the user interface.

Important: I would highly recommend that you start fresh with this addon by doing two things:

  1. Open the Hermes configuration and go to the "Maintenance" tab. Click both "Show >>" buttons and add in any new spells that are not in your inventory and also hit the "Full Reset" button for the Spell Monitor.
  2. Open the Hermes configuration and go to the "Profiles" tab. Click the "Reset Profile".

Keep in mind, that I'm aware neither of these options are required and certainly aren't the most efficient way to handle this, but it will help get your addon working with the latest code available.

Release v2.3 Notes

This release includes significant changes since v2.2.

  • If upgrading from v2.2 or earlier, you will lose your existing container setup.
  • Please visit the archived history page for full release notes.

    I'm speaking on behalf of the original author:

    Hermes and related subprojects are no longer being maintained by it's author. Perhaps someone could take them over.

    Addon spotlight just highlighted this addon.  It's riddled with errors at the moment.  The walk-through videos are no longer available from youtube.  Not sure it was the wisest addon to spotlight without having been updated for the past 6 months.  Hopefully it isn't a dead project.  If it worked well, it would be, by far, my most useful addon.

    It seems to be working fine in 4.3 normally, but gets a ton of errors in a LFR group.  Can we get an update to fix that?

  • #80

    I know this post is quite dated, but if you could provide any of the LFR errors that you're seeing. I would be greatful.

    Is it possible to change the name the spell appears as on the bar? E.g. can I shorten the cooldown "Power Word: Barrier" to just appear as "Barrier" on the bar itself? I imagine if so it is somewhere in the meta config for the spell, where the 'duration' is, but I don't know what the key is.

    i cant make this addon work inside arena. it works really good outside arena when im in party with my friends, but when i enter arena it stop working.

    thanks for the opacity options
    Could you add Colossus Smash ?
    tracking Colossus Smash CD can be useful if you are a warrior yourself (to know when to cast your own Shattering Throw).

    Thanks for this amazing AddOn

    appears that bloodlust only shows up from ele shamans not resto or enchacne shamans.

    I goofed up with the defaults for Divine Guardian. I accidentally used the spell id for the base cooldown. So if you see a cooldown for DG that's almost 20 hours long (70940 seconds) it's my mistake!

    I'll fix this bug and any other bugs reported in a couple days. In the mean time, you can fix it yourself by just going to the Configuration for the spell and setting the Base Cooldown to 180 instead of 70940.

    Is there any possibility to set the opacity for the spells in gray in the GridButtons Mode ?
  • #55
    I added a feature request, thanks for the feedback.
  • #52

  • #53
    Sure. I think those are important for a lot of people.
