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.

    Great Add On thank you. Now Wild Growth is on a cooldown would be great to have it in the list
  • #12
    The addon doesn't recognize the Nature's Splendor extra length on my druids HoTs.
  • #13
    Swap gear, it'll trigger a re-detecting of the talents. Looks like the author is trying to grab talent info too early in the loading process or something.
  • #11
    Any possibility of adding Wild Growth?
  • #10
    I've got a problem with the position, it ALWAYS resets on login, even if i do just a console reloadui...
  • #22
    Same here, any tip?
  • #14
    I have the some problem and it is very annoying.A hotfix would be awesome.
  • #17
    I deleted that addon 'cause of this bug. Its sad 'cause i realy liked it, i ll use it again when this thing is fixed :

    One other "bug" to report:

    I leave HotCandy enabled on multiple toons, and recently, it's been reporting an error when I log onto my non-HoT-casting toons (like a Warlock or Paladin). Specifically, this line 392 in HotCandy.lua 1.4.0:

    for k,v in pairs(spells[class]) do

    My selfish quick fix was to just add in my extra classes as empty tables to the "spells" table at the top:

    WARLOCK = {},
    PALADIN = {},

    Great lightweight addon. Tiny little problem though, could you somehow try to make it work with the new renew glyph? and try to fix the "bug" of permanently resetting itself after a relogg or a ui-reload. these two nicks are a bit of a pain
  • #7
    Any chance on getting some screenshots of this mod
  • #5
    One bug I've found with the 3.02 version: it does not recognize the 2nd Lifebloom cast on another target. If I cast on myself, it registers fine. On anyone else, it misses the 2nd Lifebloom. The bar still refreshes to maximum, but it doesn't show (2), whereas my unit frames show it correctly.


    1st cast
    Unit Frames: Lifebloom x 1
    HotCandy: Lifebloom x 1

    2nd cast
    Unit Frames: Lifebloom x 2
    HotCandy: Lifebloom x 1

    3rd cast
    Unit Frames: Lifebloom x 3
    HotCandy: Lifebloom x 2
  • #4
    Will there be support for glyphs? Currently my Renew is shortened by 3 seconds by a glyph, but the bars stats off animating the original 16 seconds and then abruptly cuts off 3 seconds early.
  • #1
    1.3.0 gives this error on login:
    Interface\AddOns\HotCandy\HotCandy.lua:12: bad argument #1 to 'format' (number expected, got nil)
    [C]: ?
    [C]: in function `format'
    Interface\AddOns\HotCandy\HotCandy.lua:12: in main chunk
  • #2
    You can edit HotCandy.lua to fix this issue and get rid of the error message:

    local VERSION = tonumber(("$Revision$"):match("%d+"))
    Need to add a revision number, for example:
    local VERSION = tonumber(("$Revision: 13000 $"):match("%d+")) = ("$Date$"):match("%d%d%d%d%-%d%d%-%d%d")
    Need to add a date, for example: = ("$Date: 2008-10-01 00:00:00 -0000 (Wed, 01 oct 2008)$"):match("%d%d%d%d%-%d%d%-%d%d")
