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 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.

    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.

    Currently getting this error when adding a new spell. I tried adding Mirror Image for the mage, nothing would show up. clicked config mode and this error pops up all the time.

    Ouch! I'm honestly not sure what caused that. If the issue still happens after reloading your UI, this the data got corrupt due to a bug somewhere before all of that.

    Does it still happen for you? And if you were to create another profile and follow similar steps would it reproduce?

    I just tried the best I could to reproduce based on the steps (and error details) with no luck so far.

    Im not sure it its because Mirror Image ID is 55342 but hermes shows a differnt ID. entering in the mentioned ID works perfectly just not by searching by name.

  • #51
    Searching by name is unreliable. I added that capability for convenience but there's not much I can do, glad you figured it out. Still not sure why you were getting Lua errors though. I have not been able to reproduce that.
