About HuntBars

A stack of bars (including Focus/CDs/Procs/Buffs) designed to help hunters optimize their DPS.

Description:

This is an addon that based on your current spec shows a frame with the most important abilities for this same spec. All information is shown as a bars that track these abilities. At some point (at procs mainly) bars may change the way they are tracking an ability (or even temporary change the ability they track) to inform you about important moments. The addon comes preconfigured and ready to use out-of-the-box but for those requiring higher degree of customization there are options to add custom bars that can track anything player sees fit, to rearrange bars order and amount or to remove any of the existing bars, including focus bar.

Focus bar is improved with a mark that shows the minimum amount needed for the active spec's main ability. This way the player can always prepare to have enough focus for when the ability is off cooldown. Focus bar color changes at the amount that one Arcane Shot can be fired and still enough focus will remain for spec's main ability. This optimizes DPS by showing what next shot should be the moments before main ability cooldown expires - one additional Arcane Shot if there will remain enough focus or wait for the main ability cooldown and use the ability.

Localization (need your help!):

You can add your translations or English corrections at CurseForge's localization tool. More info about localization can be found below (at the bottom of this description).

Recent changes:

Frenzy and Focus Fire are now handled by a single bar
Added Bestial Wrath bar for Beastmastery


Overview of the frames/bars:

General Info:
  • The frames can be moved with holding Shift+Ctrl+LeftMouseButton or by enabling Configuration mode
  • Hide Focus Bar only and leave all other bars visible
  • Show only Focus Bar and hide all other bars
  • Customize size/time/text/color/font/texture of the bars
  • Show/hide every ability tracking bar individually
  • Option to show the frames in combat only
  • Extended mode frame where additional(spec independent) abilities are tracked
Focus Bar Improvements:
  • Shaded minimal amount of focus equal to spec's main ability - Kill Command, Chimera Shot or Explosive Shot
  • The color changes when one Arcane Shot can be fired and the focus will remain above the shaded amount (i.e. you will still have enough for the main ability)
  • During Steady/Cobra Shot estimates the amount of focus at the end of the casting
Beast Mastery:
  • Improved Focus - Hunter resource meter bar
  • Frenzy - bar that shows pet's "Frenzy" stacks, on 5 stacks becomes red to remind about Focus Fire
  • Focus Fire - cooldown / duration
  • Kill Command - cooldown
  • Bestial Wrath - duration/cooldown
Marksmanship:
  • Improved Focus - Hunter resource meter bar
  • Chimera Shot - cooldown
  • Improved Steady Shot - buff's remaining time
  • Ready, Set, Aim... - stacks counting bar
  • Fire! - at 5 stacks "Ready, Set, Aim..." bar becomes red to show that "Aimed Shot" is free and instant cast
Survival:
  • Improved Focus - Hunter resource meter bar
  • Explosive Shot - cooldown/2sec debuff on "Lock and Load"
  • Lock and Load - when "Lock and Load" procs "Explosive Shot" bar becomes red and swaps from cooldown to 2sec debuff so player doesn't overlap Explosive Shots' DOT duration
  • Lock and Load - proc's internal cooldown, so player knows when to begin expecting next "Lock and Load"
  • Black Arrow - cooldown/debuff duration, both on the same bar (debuff is NYI)
Additional Bars (Extended Mode):
  • 3x Custom Bars - cooldown / buff on self / debuff(DOT) on target
  • Serpent Sting - DOT duration
  • Kill Shot - cooldown
  • Rapid Fire - cooldown/duration

Few more words about localization (i.e. Translators are needed):

If you want to use this addon on your language (deDE, esES, frFR, ruRU, etc.) you can go to CurseForge's localization tool to translate few phrases (or more), you only need to understand written English. If you want your work credited please send me PM to add you as addon contributor. The translation page can be found on HuntBars localization at CurseForge.com.

    Hello again, sorry for the late reply (have been away)

    something is terrebly wrong with the addon, first time i put it on i got like 5 pages of long error messages. My thouth was that i remove my other ones and try again.

    When i removed my other addons huntbars would not even load in, and yes i had load out of date addons checked.

    so something i terribly wrong with it, i know this is something you do in your free time and i think you are awesome that does that. but could you take a look? cant post any error messages cause it does not work at all, doesnt load in.

    cheers

     

    I dont have the expansion

    I can try on a free version as level 1-20 but not sure if it would be enough to see all the problems. Anyway i will run it on the free version this weekend.

    Hey I was wondering why HuntBars wasn't working as of 6.0.2.

    I havent updated it in a while.

    Dont have sub, its returning some error?

  • #42

    Just a thought but would it be possible to add a 4 sec timer in for beast cleave   (ie.  when you press multi-shot a 4 sec timer counts down to let you know when your pet has stopped cleaving.

  • #43

    Haven't tried this, but you can probably add it as custom bar.

    Would it be possible to add player health and pet health bars? I know HP doesn't fall exactly under the purview of this addon, but I have yet to find *good* bars for those, and I really don't want an entire unit frames addon just for those 2 little bars!

    Either way, thanks for an awesome plugin!

    Because you asked nicely I can make it but it will be disabled by default (you will need to enable it somewhere "hidden" deep in the options). Probably week to month from now (if you are lucky :P ).

    BTW I see it that you are volunteering to alpha test this new feature? :P

    Definitely, LMK when it's ready to test.

  • #36

    after new patch the error for trying to get main talent comes up an all the bars r on screen any fix for this

     

  • #37

    ok found the website for the alpha release thanks by the way :) the thing i would love to see is the duration icon for the freezeing trap spell even if it is off target just so i dont have to keep mouseing over the frozen mob to check on his time left on cc please and thanks for the cool addon real helped me with timing :)

     

  • #38

    After I finish the final version for Pandas, I intend to add target independent trap timer. The only bad thing is that it always remains "next in the list" since the beginning of Cata :P
