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".

    AFAIK Skada Threat does nothing except display the values sent by Blizzard, so if it is really slow to update that's a Blizzard thing, no?
  • #1014
    at current state "Hide when solo" is not even working when "Disable when Hidden" is not ticked... Skada pops up after each kill.
  • #1012
    It doenst show the *total* when im in dungeon and attack few mobs and kill it, skada will reset everything... I try to set it to *total* but it keeps going to *current fight*
    How can I solve this ?
  • #1011
    I have talked to few locks on my realm and whether (and this is with both skada and recount) locks dps is being misreported atm..sometimes it is including the pets and sometimes it isn't (imp, felguard etc)....this can make a difference in locks dps by at least 2-3k, but atm it seems the blame is coming back on us unless the raid leader can see reason and is smart and can see this is happening... The first time I noticed this is when someone linked the meter, and my doomguards dps came up, but no imp, I changed pet, they linked again and no felguard. Can this please be fixed
  • #1010
    I want to use the history feature, last 10 fights or so showing.
    But it only shows the mob name and time, no DPS or HPS options...
  • #1006
    Looks like Skada is dead, which is a shame. :(
  • #1008
    Visit the development site, linked above. There is a new alpha version, uploaded yesterday. Skada is still being actively developed.
  • #1005
    Is this going to be updated to fix whispers?
  • #1004
    I can't seem to figure out how to get test bars so I can position the window precisely on the screen where I want it... does this addon not have that option?
  • #1003
    I get now the error that skada is causing an internal error (trying to do something that is only allowed for the blizzard UI). im using damage & threat modules.
    it occures whenever i want to replace a glyph
  • #1002
    Request: Since Skada already tracks and saves dps and healing done by each ability could you please tell us how to send our personal text data from Skada's grid to a cast button/macro? I'd like to know what average damage/healing to expect before I click an ability.
  • #1001

  • #1000
    Skada window options now showing up. Under Window all I see is Skada. I can't change the width of the window which prevents me from actually seeing much information.
  • #999
    Is it possible to increase the maximum bar width beyond 400? Now Blizz have improved the widescreen resolution pixel mapping I have more screen space to play with, and could use a wider Skada to fill the space it's in.
  • #995
    Can a totals line be added to the top of the damage window to see total raid damage? Is this possible now? I couldn't find it in the options.
