About HotCandy

HotCandy is a Heal-over-Time tracker initialy designed for Druids, but has grown into a full HoT/Buff tracker for all healing classes.

HotCandy was designed to be very simple and easy to use, with only a handful of options to customize the style of the bars. However its core is powerful and supports all known set bonuses, talents and glyphs that increase the length of your HoTs.

HotCandy is driven solely by the CombatLog events which provide it with all information it needs to display accurate timers for the HoTs you cast on other players (or yourself, of course).

Supported Spells

  • Druids
    • Lifebloom (with stack display)
    • Rejuvenation
    • Regrowth
    • Wild Growth (disabled by default)
  • Priests
    • Renew
    • Power Word: Shield
    • Prayer of Mending (with remaining charges display)
    • Holy Word: Serenity
    • Divine Aegis (disabled by default)
  • Paladin
    • Beacon of Light
  • Shamans
    • Riptide
    • Ancestral Healing
    • Earthliving (disabled by default)
  • Hunter
    • Mend Pet

All supported spells can be enabled/disabled in the HotCandy configurarion, as you see fit.

You can access the HotCandy configuration through the Blizzard Interface AddOns Options, or with the /hotcandy slash command.

    firstly, thank you very much for the time and efforts put in to bringing us this terrific addon.
    is there any way to include the holy priest's lightwell into this ? I understand it may be more complex to do since it requires the party or raid member to click on the well themselves .. but at over 13k heals over 6 secs .. I'd really like to be able to track that

    thank you again !

    ok, been using this for awhile and it seems the recent patch broke something with power word: shield making it refresh the duration on every absorb. I checked the combat log and it shows it refreshing to show the amount of points it can still absorb, I'd guess this is making it reset the timer with hotcandy.

    hi there...
    would it be possible to restrict the display of hotsto a few selected targets? for instance just seeing hots active on the tanks?
    would be a fantastic addition to an already awesome addon :)
  • #43
    This is the functionality I want, and I am so disappointed I cannot find an addon to do this. If I could pick 2-3 targets for HoT Tracking only, this addon would be awesome. I can't find any other addon to do this, you should definitely add this functionality to yours.

    A very powerful addon - I use it for healing (druid).
    Recently I was wondering if it is possible to add tics for the hot/dot bars (like EventHorizon for example), so you can manage reapplying of the casts more easily...
    Many thanks

    I'm working on a internal rewrite of HotCandy to finally fix the positioning issues.

    Its basically ready for testing, if you want to test head over to WoWAce and grab the latest Alpha from there.

    Additionally, i'll look into adding more spells for shamans and paladins later tonight.
  • #44
    Could you consider adding the functionality to track hots on only tanks?
  • #39
    Superb addon,

    Could you add "Gift of the Naaru", "Earth Shield" (with stack display) and "Earthliving" please.

    Many Thanks

    Annoying bug, bars move between game sessions, down a bar or two and slightly right.
  • #38
    Does the same thing for me. Even locked, etc etc.
  • #36
    Is there anything I can take out of the .lua to only make it track spells I cast on myself?
  • #35
    This isn't working with the new cross-realm instances. My hots aren't showing timers for people on other realms?

    Support for paladin stuffs:

    HotCandy.lua:line 86:

    HUNTER = {
    mendpet = {
    id = 136,
    duration = 15,
    PALADIN = {
    handofprotection = { id = 10278, duration = 10, },
    handofsacrifice = { id = 6940, duration = 12, },
    handofsalvation = { id = 1038, duration = 10, },
    handoffreedom = { id = 1044, duration = 6, },
    beaconoflight = { id = 53563, duration = 60, },
    sacredshield = { id = 53601, duration = 30, },
    holyshield = { id = 48952, duration = 10, },

    HotCandy.lua:line 132
    -- hunter spells
    mendpet = true,
    -- paladin spells
    beaconoflight = true,
    sacredshield = true,
    handofprotection = true,
    handofsacrifice = true,
    handofsalvation = true,
    handoffreedom = true,
    holyshield = false,

    Can't really do Divine Plea; well, i could, but the glyph makes the timer keep resetting - and HotCandy has no idea how a spell timer could reset.

    But you could just follow everything else i added to add Divine Plea. i also decided that a pally tank doesn't need to, by default, see Holy Shield, since that should be up all the time, and part of the 9-6-9-6-9 rotation.

    First time in a long time that Hot Candy has bugged for me. I reinstalled it and still have the same problem. All the spells it tracks count down to 0.1 seconds and remain flashing, sometimes creating a HUGE mess on my screen. Here's a screen shot of a smaller section of spells cast that counted down but that wouldn't clear from the mod
