About Mistra's Diablo Orbs

Mistra's Diablo Orbs

Mistra's Diablo Orbs provides the user with a clean, aesthetically pleasing, and functional center piece for monitoring player health and mana. The orbs are fully fleshed-out, with smooth animated fillings, and multiple textures.

This addon provides the following:

  • Health and Mana Orbs - each with full custom user colorization and several textures to choose from.
  • A Pet Orb - one compact unit to monitor pet health/mana, aesthetically matching the health and mana orbs.
  • Power tracking - Monks, Shadow Priests, Paladins, Warlocks, Rogues, and Feral druids will have a power tracking frame that will animate whenever their resource is capped. (Holy Power, the various forms of Soul Shards, combo points, etc)
  • Plethora of options - Users are able to pick their own colors and formatting whenever they want via a new, easy-to-use GUI.
  • No third party libraries - This addon is usable from the get-go, out of the box, and looks good without requiring heavy configuration.
  • Accessible author - I'm the same guy who made the oUF_D3Orbs_Lightweight addon, and I'm always available for thoughts on improvements, additions, and bug reports.

Thank you for using Mistra's Diablo Orbs!

Q & A

  • Q: How do I change my orb colors?
    • A: There are a couple of ways for you to access the orb menu. You can type /mdo in the chat window and press Enter, or you can click on the Minimap Button.
  • Q: How do I move things around?
    • A: Simply hold shift, and click and drag any orb or frame around. You can move things to your heart's content!
  • Q: Can I disable the Pet Orb, or any other element of the orbs?
    • A: Yes, of course. The only elements you cannot disable are the Health and Mana orbs. Every additional frame is a user choice, and is up to you to use!
  • Q: My health dropdown is acting funny, I can't seem to find the "Combat" option. What gives?
    • A: Dropdowns are a tad finicky in WoW. While I look into this issue, you can get around it by simply selecting the "Mana Orb" option, and then re-selecting "Health Orb." It'll show up!

If you have any questions, bug reports, or feedback, please don't hesitate to let me know! I can be reached here on Curse, on the forums, or on the project site. Please don't be afraid to ask me a question or give me a suggestion. I will try and stay as accessible as possible.

    Warrior's have 120 rage opticionality.

    Addon display incorrect information(100/120 vs 120/120).

    Fix this, please.

    After testing this, I think I know where you are getting confused.

    There are no hardcapped values in this addon - it will dynamically scale to whatever value the resource happens to be.  What you are probably seeing is this:

    100

        120

    The "100" is a representation of the percentage of the resource you have left.  I.E. if you have 120 rage, and your maximum is 120, you have 100% of the resource available.

    When you lose rage, you see this number go down.  It's a bit redundant normally for Warriors, since they only get 100 rage by default, so instead both values look like a remainder.  Because of this, I added the ability to get rid of either number - you can change their opacity values to zero, rendering them invisible.  This is done in the orb menu by pressing the "Percentage" or "Value" buttons, and changing the opacity value on the slider. 

    Cheers!

    Fantastic addon. To make it even better i would love to be able to have mana-orb as target, and pet-orb as focus or my own mana/rage etc. Anyhow, good work.

    Can you allow the option to disable the mana orb and instead have it show your target?

  • #45

    Would love to use this addon if it had a option to show my targets orb, instead of my mana. This would be slick, my orb on the left, my target on the right orb. Any chance you can make this happen?

  • #44

    Awesome to see someone keeping the D3 orbs alive, but I was wondering if there was any chance of the class colors on target frames and the mouse tooltip coming back, like what the original D3 orbs addon had?

  • #43

    I've got a problem: my main ist a moonkin and everytime I start this addon, it removes my eclipse bar :/ is there a way to get it back while using this addon?

  • #40

    Is Background at my UI

  • #42

    Can you elaborate?  I am not too sure what you mean, sorry.

  • #39

    great addon bro real nice....is there a way you can add orbs for target and, tot in next update???

  • #41

    I appreciate the idea - but honestly, probably not.  The idea here is to have a unique HUD for your character - adding orbs everywhere for other elements may not, in the end, be aesthetically pleasing.

    Not sure if I should mention this here or on SexyMap, but here goes.

     

    I use SexyMap, as if my statement above wasn't obvious enough. Noticed that yor orbs have a minimap button, which is fine. I can't seem to have it hide or even be removed, like I can with other addon buttons in either their own settings or through SexyMap (has options to never show, always show, or only show with mouse over).

     

    Again, just pointing it out. I can live with it being shown at all times. :)

  • #38

    I noticed this last night as well.  Interestingly, the version of SexyMap I tested with before SexyMap had its most recent update worked just fine with my minimap button.  But you are correct, now it shows up constantly.  It also still only moves in a circular pattern when the map becomes a square.  I'll be getting with the author of SexyMap soon to try and correct the issue.

    In fact, the screenshot I took with the Warlock up there was taken before the latest SexyMap update hit - and you'll notice the button is hidden.  

    Edit: After looking around on SexyMap's comment areas, many others are having trouble with certain minimap buttons no longer hiding.  He'll probably fix it soon!

    Edit #2: I've submit a patch request to the author of SexyMap to add a line of code that should fix the problem.

    I really love this addon, great job! It's a lot of fun to use this instead of the boring old health and mana bars that blizzard has.

    What are the chances you could add a way to just use a single orb for the player just like the pet has (so one big orb that is split down the middle with health on the left and mana/power on the right)?

  • #36

    That could definitely be an option, but I will be honest, I did not set up the infrastructure to do that easily.  It would take a little time.
