About Tank Warnings

Tank Warnings is a simple addon to warn configurable messages upon certain events related to tanking, like Taunt resists or usage of special mitigation abilities that are usually used in emergencies, like Shield Wall and so on.

Supports Warriors, Druids, Paladins and Death Knights, as well as integration with BigWigs creating global or local timers for specific abilities.

Messages can be sent to scrolling combat text addons as well as common channels like Raid Warning, Raid, Party, custom channel names, etc.

    Thanks, rbarrienos. I think the one I care about the most (of course, personal selfish me :( ) is the integration with DBM. And don't worry, get your life stuff sorted out. I really appreciate the great addon you've created.

  • #38
    Thanks hash, I'll work soon on the new requested stuff as soon as I have my stuff sorted.

    Feedback on Beta - Lichborne, Unbreakable Armor, IBF:

    Works as intended. Respecced Frost just to make sure and made me remember how much I liked being frost to begin with!
  • #36
    New thing:

    Can you make the timer bars compatible with DBM? The new DBM 4.05 is way better than any BigWigs I've ever used but I'd still like to see those bars countdown, if possible.
  • #35
    Can do that, will take some time, some IRL big problems (movings and such) are setting me back alot atm. As soon as I have some free time I'll look into it.
  • #34
    Also, is there a way to alter what the timers say? Regardless if its Local or Global, is there a chance the timer could lose that word and maybe just say your name and what the buff is?
  • #33
    Hey rbarreiros,

    I was wondering if you might help me out with the BigWigs timer bars. Regardless if I choose local or global timer bars, is there a way for me to adjust where they will be independently of all the actually boss raid timers?

    They're front and center on the screen which is kind of in the way for me. In a boss fight I usually have too many buffs to look at my buffbars and track em down, so I was wondering how I might move them say, off to the side?

    Otherwise, great addon. I really appreciate your adding Lichborne and Unbreakable Armor. I don't think UA is spammy because IBF is on the same cooldown, so it could be just as spammy, especially when you remove the runic power requirement via the Glyph of IBF.

    Just for some clarification, so you guys don't think I make arbitrary decisions about what to or not to add. I didn't want to (and I still don't) add Bone armor for eh following reasons, no only because it was nerfed:

    - it's not a reactive spell, it's a proactive spell as in the announcement of using it (I know this was not that was asked for, but would eventually get in as it's a small step for it to be in) would get very spammy and since it's used most of the time out of combat or only in combat to refresh it would either divert the attention of people to useless things or make them ignore the warnings due to excessive useless spam, the addon intention is to provide useful warnings without making them ask you to turn it off.

    - To add a warning on number of charges/timeout would require a big ammount of code change in the addon as it's primary function is not warning when stuff ends but only when stuff is used and it doesn't have any way atm of checking charges of self buffs, even if Bone Armor is somewhat considered to be added to announcements this functionality will not, there are already a number of spells that require 'exceptions' in the code (like Glyph of Frenzied Rejuvenation + Frenzied rejuv) and adding more just means crap code tbh, I'm pretty sure there are alot of addons around that could either be adapted to work with Bone armor or have it's functionality added (like Shaman's addons)

    Best regards,

    20% is still significant imo, something that in certain encounters healers would like to know. Thanks for repsonding though, Ill keep my eye on it in case you change your mind :)
  • #30
    I forgot to add, AS, LoH, HoS, Lichborne, Unbreakable armor were only tested in the config interface, were not tested it's usage, would love some feedback please if they are working or not as intended.
  • #29

    I've added AS, LoH, HoS on 1.1.3b.
    Added Lichborne and Unbreakable Armor on 1.1.4b
    (I wasn't going to add Unbreakable armor, only 1 min CD can be very spammy .... but in the end Christmas spirit asked me allot :D)

    Tested and confirmed working:
    - enable/disable of bigwigs timers this can be found on "Announcements" you need to have BigWigs installed and loaded (box ticked in Addons list on character screen) to show up the options.
    Output") or, if you setup the Sink to be a scrolling combat text you can force them or not through an option in "Messages" named "Send messages to raid warning regardless", if you don't want to, disable this last option, and change the output sink to something else besides raid warnings.
    - I'm not going to add Bone Shield sorry, with the next patch comming nerfing Bone Shield to 20% won't be a big deal tbh, but if alot more DK's ask for it I'll reconsider.
  • #28
    It would be useful if this addon could announce when Bone Shield has run out/has a defined number of charges left, to give the healers some warning of when that 40% extra damage is coming in
  • #27
    As I mentioned, I've tried disabling output on my DK, and it is ineffective.

    I'll try tanking some stuff on my paladin this weekend to see if there are similar things.

    Thank you for your attention.
  • #26
    The Big Wigs settings appears to have disappeared from the options menu, but they are still trying to use BigWigs to create custom bars.
  • #25
    Ok, this weekend I'll try to sort out Avenger's Shield, Lay on Hands, and Hand of Sacrifice along with the other issues.

    About IBF and AMS I'll make some tests as soon as My DK learns AMS and IBF but you should be able to disable them, there's an option in Messages that enables the sending to RaidWarning regardless of what the routing is, try to disable that and see if what you're looking for.
