About LFDCooldown

This tool shows the cooldown time of the Random Dungeon tool as a StatusBar that ticks down.
When the bar hits zero it will disappear and you know that you can once again use the Random Dungeon finder even if you left the last dungeon early.

/lfdcd : Shows the timer (if still on CD)
/lfdcd hide : hides the timer
/lfdcd reset : resets position and test time
/lfdcd test nn : sets a test bar to nn seconds
/lfdcd scale nn : scales the window (0.5 = half size)

Left click and drag to move, right click to hide the bar.

    Interesting take on such a mod. A couple of issues/bugs with v2.0.1.2, though.

    WoW 4.1 live, USEnglish client/server. On first install, type in "/lfdcd scale 0.8". The mod throws the following error and nothing happens. The scale of the test bar is not changed:

    \n: ?\n",
    ["type"] = "error",
    ["locals"] = "msg = \"scale 0.8\"\n",
    ["session"] = 2755,
    ["counter"] = 2,
    }, -- [1000]

    The error repeats every time you type that in and it happens no matter the scale number you use.

    Second issue: the custom timer this creates uses some CPU time (like all timers do), but not excessively. It normally uses 0 CPU/second on idle, a bit more when the bar is active (tested using the OptionHouse mod with CPU profiling enabled).

    But after bringing up a test bar (via "/lfdcd test 5"), the CPU time this used when the bar was up did not go away after the bar was gone. It continued to consume CPU when the bar was gone (and not on a dungeon cooldown). Expected that it should stop consuming resources when the mod is inactive.

    Sorting both issues (I hope) in the next release, just want to test it a bit more before publishing it - don't want to drop out of dungeons if I don't have to.

    I hate leaving dungeons halfway through, but sometimes there's no other option...like people leaving the party at the start and the rest going offline or afk that you can't even requeue, or the party really turns out to be a bunch of morons who's sole life is to make the dungeon run hell for everyone else.

    Thanks for this addon its awesome! I use it as the timer doesn't show up in the Dungeon Finder window.

    if you are constantly getting the dungeon deserter debuff, then you shouldn't be using LFD to begin with.
  • #2
    The goal of the addon is not to encurage people to drop out of groups but as of patch 3.3.x the debuff does not exist. A cooldown of 15 mins is initiated every time you enter a dungeon using the LFD functionality and is reset if you kill the last boss or if you are the last person left in the group.
    You can however be unlucky with groups or just a single player leaving you very few options but to leave the group. This tool will then give you a visual guide to when you can sign up for a new group.

    Exactly, I've had a few moments where leaving the party was the only option. Had a group where the tank died, the healer and a dps left, another dps force-dc'd, and then the tank dc'd. I left the group and got a deserter debuff.
