About WowCardioRaid

WowCardioRaid is an offline standalone parser for analyzing the wow combat log output. It's not an Addon, but a full external application. So, *do not* use CurseClient to get it, because this tool has nothing to do in the wow addon folder.

This tool supports LiveUpdate, Realtime parsing and advanced ressources log from wow 6.0

  • -launch the program
  • -load a WowCombatlog.txt file. Logs are located in the .\logs repertory of World of warcraft.
  • -watch and analyse the log in the graphic/replay viewport throught multiple filters/focus systems
  • -You can Zoom and dezoom on the timeline, select time period, select spell or event.
  • -You can see a stats breakdown for the selected period of time.

It only works on windows. Beta version and Sources can be found at

To be able to use 1.2+ features you must enable the advanced logging in Wow.

Go in Wow -> option/network/check advanced log then, you must quit the game then relaunch it. I also recommend to discard your current wowcombatlog.txt before register a new one, so it will not contains hybrid (basic and advanced) logs

    Noticed that there wasn't a recent comment about this, which is a shame, because this tool is amazing. The LiveLog feature is especially nice, as it allows us to figure out where we could use some attention for the next pull. Keep up the good work!

  • #13
    This is very nice. Thank you for the hard work you have put into this.
  • #10
    Little Bug:
    Lich King is flagged like "Trash Mob" WCR cannot pre-select this fight in combat log.
    Need to select it with Ctrl + click
  • #11
    Not exactly a bug since you can set this yourself:

    On the graphic view, just pop-up the context menu over the lich king Unit then choose "option for [lich king"], then set this unit as a Boss.
    You may have to add related unit (like valkyr) as "affiliated" to lich king boss to see a correct combat block
  • #12
    thanks i'll try that next time =)

    Hi there, first off great work. I've been loving every bit of this. I'm having a few issues however, I don't know if these are easy fixes/implementations but I figured it would'nt hurt to mention.
    First off the event list doesn't seem to show heals that have 100% overhealed. Those don't appear in the list at all =/
    The second thing that is more of an annoyance than a real issue is the lack of an overall stat page for each character (similar to wws I guess). I know it would be redundant with existing parsers but it would help to get all the information in the same spot rather than jump between programs or onto the web.

    anyways thanks a lot!!

    Hi, thanks for the kind words.
    I have a lot of ideas to improve WCR, but I am currently running out of time. Anyway, yes, detailled/filtered stats are in the todo list, definitely (some parts are already started, anyway).

    For the OH bug, it's weird: I am seeing all events.
    Are you sure you are not misunderstanding the way it works?
    In the event list you see the raw heal, then the OH part, so If you see, for example: 1000 (OH 1000), that means 100% OH.
    Maybe i should offer a way to see the Effective heal in the list directly.
  • #6
    Will there be an update for this for 3.0.2/WotLK ?
  • #7
    Yes :)
    i just posted a new version, with a lot more feature.
  • #1

    This is a really awesome program, been looking for something like this for a while now :)... Keep up the good work, and I can't wait until you release a stable version!

  • #3

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Ive commited a new beta

    Bugs have been fixed, and few new features added.

    For the eventlist, its not finished at all, I have focused on the timeline rendering, so I did'nt take care about it. Anyway I have added a quick fix: when a unit is selected through the eventlist context menu, the event position is kept.

    Also, hp/dps/hps insta value under the mouse are shown in the statusbar.

  • #2

    Absolutely fantastic tool excellent way of allowing people to sift through the immense amount of data froma boss fight and dig into the detail to see what went right and what went wrong. Keep up the excellent work.

    One bug report and 2 feature requests

    In Beta 7c I'm seeing the CRIT flag inverted on all heals, so none crits have the CRIT flag set and crits don't. This is easy to see by looking at HoTs which are all marked as CRIT

    Feature Request
    When in the event list if I select showing events for a single character the view takes me back to the start of the log. It would be ace switching between the entire view and the events for one character could try and maintain my place in the events.

    To illustrate why this would be great. You're looking at the detailed view for the tank and you see a point where they took a big HP hit and the healers just caught it. You pick one of the damage events and use the context menu to go to that in the event list. You can see this damage event there but it's surrounded by the entire raid doing stuff. You select just the tank in the overview so you only see events for them and the event list poops back to the beginning over an hour before the fight you were interested in.

    I tired setting the event view to just show the tank I was interested before selecting 'View Event in List' but the event list seemed to get reset to show everyone when I did this so that didn't help either.

    Feature Request
    You're tracking current unit health to draw the HP line in the main timeline and detail views, but this information isn't available in the tooltips for the events or in the event list. This would be a really useful addition when looking and damage spikes and deaths =)

  • #5

    Wow isn't register the combat log by default.
    For that you must type the chat command /combatlog to toggle the functionnality.

    Some addon can enable/disable this automatically when entering in chosen zones.
    you can try Loggerhead for that:
    (I dont find it on curse )

  • #4

    There is no WowCombatlog.txt log in my WoW logs folder.
    Should I install something or enable something to make it run?
