I haven’t talked about this subject yet on my blog, but a while ago I made an addon called ManaWarning. I haven’t posted it on any of the addon websites, just on my guild’s forum.
The problem however lies in my inability to work on the addon and make sure it will work in 2.4 and beyond since I’m on WoW-Hiatus. So, I’m not adding any features at the moment, but if anyone wants to pick this project up and make it super awesome – I will be very happy to pretend I was the one that… ehh… I mean… well you know what I mean!
ManaWarning is an addon that gives a big flashy warning every now and then when you reach a certain level of Mana during combat. A similar warning is given when you reach a certain level of Health. It also gives a warning in either party or raid chat whenever you’re going OOM (default 10% of mana pool).
It is intended for use with level 70 characters, but it works alright from 60-70 as well. The threshold to give a warning can be modified, but it’s default is that of a full-restore by a Super Mana Potion (3000Mana).
For both Mana and OOM messages, high-level potions, objects and abilities are checked for Cooldown, and a given estimate in seconds is given for when which pot/ability is (again) available.
There is a configuration screen available to pretty much alter everything by entering the slash-command ‘/manawarning’.
You need to have Deadly Boss Mods for the addon to work.
Version 0.5 – available HERE.
Under the cut is the list of supported potions and abilities for the ones who are interested.If you add, modify or want to yell at me for the heck of it, reply ahead. Have fun!
I just want to add, that I’m not really enchanted by the blue flashy warning DBM shows, I hardly ever see it while healing, so if anyone has a suggestion how to make the warning more visible, don’t hesitate to comment.
