About Skada Damage Meter

Skada is a modular damage meter with various viewing modes. It is inspired mainly by Assessment, but also by Recount.

Skada sports segmented fights and detailed views, while being highly efficient with memory. This is accomplished by aggregating data on fight segments.

Skada is entirely modular. The built-in modes can all be toggled on/off.


  • Automatic mode switching when entering combat. For example, you can have Threat mode be shown in combat. Skada can switch back after combat ends.
  • Specific fight segments can be kept indefinately.
  • Multiple windows. Each window can be configured fully.
  • Threat mode can warn on high threat.
  • Modes: Damage done, DPS, Threat, Enemy damage done, Enemy damage taken, Healing, Overhealing, Total healing, Absorbs estimated, Damage taken, Dispels, Mana regen, Debuff uptimes, and more.
  • Reports can be done everywhere. For example, you can report a certain player's Debuff uptimes.
  • Summary information for most modes (DPS, HPS, Fails, etc) in a LDB view/minimap button.
  • LDB data feed can show personal/raid DPS or personal threat.
  • Support for SharedMedia and Class Colors.
  • Class and role icons.
  • Stop/Resume fight segments to discount irrelevant data.

Skada is very easy to extend, and there are many "plug-in" addons out there that add functionality, such as:

There is a page with API information here.


Navigation in Skada is done by "drilling down" to the information you want. You go to a lower level, showing more detailed information, by clicking on it, and you go to a higher level by right-clicking.

The top level is the list of all saved fight segments. The second level is the list of all available data modes, such as Damage Done. The third level is one of these modes. Most modes let you drill down for further details. Some modes have several detailed views. In this case you choose alternate views by holding certain keys pressed while clicking. For example, in Damage mode, you can Shift-click a player to see what enemies the player caused damage to. Tooltips will display how to reach the different views.

You can also use window buttons for selecting fight segment and mode directly.

Scrolling in Skada is done with the mousewheel.

New Skada windows can be created from the configuration screen. Each window can be separately configured. A popular feature is "Mode switching", which lets Skada automatically switch to a specific mode on entering combat.

There is a forum thread for discussion on Skada.
Suggestions and bug reports here. Bug reports in comments will be deleted.

"Skada" is Swedish for "Damage".

Fix Enemy healing module to include enemy HoTs with a nil source unit (eg Cauterizing Bolt on Thogar).
Previously these heals were completely omitted from tracking, now they are shown on Enemy Healing Taken (but we still have no way in general to correctly attribute them for Enemy Healing Done).

    I did a comparison between a World of Logs combatlog report and the Skada report for the same fight (Lich King hc, very static). It turns out that Skada shows 0 healing done by Powerword shield and Divine Aegis, while the WoL log shows 12M and 2.5M healing done by those spells. However this was done on oct 27, have there been any changes in showing these heals in the newest update?

    Thanks for today's fixes (on the alpha), everything's working again for me. :)

    I have a question about this mod. My recount for some reason keeps turning off the damage display and merge for my pet (I'm a hunter) so I downloaded Skada, and really love it. The thing is, I can't really tell if it's counting my pet or not. When I send the pet in alone to attack (to see how much DPS it does on its own) it does not show on the skada DPS meter. Anyone know if its maybe just an option in skada I have setup incorrectly? Thanks in advance!
  • #962
    There are no individual segments to be selected. Only All fights and current fight.
  • #964
    I have the exact same problem, I would love to know whether this is an issue with Skada or the boss-lib.
  • #960
    I just wanted to say thank you for this mod.

    I had been using recount for a long while but hated how it hogged up so much memory... and looked terribly ugly as well. I appreciate how you took the time to let us edit the general look and feel of the meters.

    Best of luck :)

    2 Requests!

    1: The ability to add various strings into the title bar; Segment time, total for displayed view (total damage, total DPS, total healing, total interrupts, etc...), other strings (if you can think of any) and right/left justification on them. Or do a DogTag style title bar string?
    2: The ability to add a fixed location bar (not affected by scrolling) on the top or bottom of the bar list display which also has similar string options to #1 (totals, segment time or DogTags style).

    Would add a bit of flexibility in what can be displayed in the default window!

    hey, great addon but would like to ask if u could include some of the new paladin absorbs, the mastery Illuminated Healing, and the Prot pala talent Guarded by the light, which makes ur overheal on Word of Glory a shield.
    Thanks and sorry if someone else have already brought this to ur attetnion.
  • #955
    Hey, GREAT addon but there's one thorn in my side and it's that I can't change the bar orientation from "up to down" to "down to up" if that makes any sense. I'd like to use this together with "reverse bar growth" so that the highest number is always lowest.
  • #954

    I was wondering if you could possibly make it so :FormatNumber would format numbers even for "Detailed" numbers. Seeing "Average hits" as 184.66666666666666666667 is quite annoying.

  • #952
    Hey :)

    Could I get an update on when this will take Power Word: Barrier into account?

    Thanks alot!
