AiM's Synergy Tracker
Version: 2.0
by: AiMPlAyEr [More]
Due to the recent API changes I'm not able to track synergies anymore the way I used to. It may take a while till it's fixed.
So far I've been able to track the Combustion Synergy (Orbs), Blood Altar, Shards and Bone Shield again.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to track the Purify Synergy (Extended Ritual) and Conduit as their IDs don't show up when I used them.
Once all of the "important" ones are working again I'm trying to add Trapping Webs and Summon Storm Atronach





At first, I wanted to create this Addon in order to help tanks with their Alkosh uptime and to get into writing Addons.
Some time after I started a few people had asked me whether it will be possible to use it for other stuff too like pvp or overland content.
That was pretty much the reason why I changed it's name from "Alkosh Synergy Tracker" to "AiM's SynergyTracker" (even through I already changed it while developing).

Yes... I'm a genius at naming things

What does this Addon do?
As the name already states it's tracking the cooldown of a few Synergies, such as those of Orbs/Shards, Liquid Lightning and Blood Altar.

Slash Commands
  • /asttoggle - hides or shows the tracker window
  • /astmenu - enters the settings menu
  • /astcombat - a toggle for hiding the tracker window outside of combat (soon)

Synergies Available
  • Combustion and Blessed from Energy Orb and Shard
  • Conduit from Liquid Lightning
  • Purify from Extended Ritual
  • Harvest from Healing Seed
  • Bone Wall from Bone Shield
  • Blood Funnel from Blood Altar
  • Charged Lightning from Summon Storm Atronach (soon)
  • Spawn Broodlings from Trapping Webs (soon)

Tracker Window
  • Three different alignments (vertical, horizontal and compact)
  • Possibility to hide or show individual Synergies

Todo List:
  • An option for editing the tracker's size without breaking the layout
  • Sharing the cooldown with for example healers (don't know if it's really needed or not)
  • Probably adding more Synergies

!Important!
I only have little knowledge about creating Addons and coding in LUA so there might be some bugs.
Version 2.0
  • Rewrote pretty much everything regarding on how the tracker window is displayed, because of the new features
  • Changed default values of savedVariables and wiped the old savedVariables because of possible errors
  • Fixed an issue where the Alpha Value would be much higher than intended
  • Fixed an iusse where using a synergy would cause an error
  • Switched from Label to Texture Control for displaying textures
  • Increased the Texture sizes from 32 to 40 pixel
  • Fixed an issue where Tracker.SynergyAlreadyExists always returns nil values instead of true or false
  • Removed table SynergyData for now
  • Removed almost every Control in the xml file because most of it is being handled via lua now
  • Added an option to show or hide any synergy
  • Added Spawn Broodlings and Charged Lightning to the settings menu (they are deactivated because I couldn't test them yet)
  • Added new "display mode" compact


Version 1.1.1
  • Fixed a problem where some synergies were not tracked (thanks to Liofa for testing)


Version 1.1
  • Fixed an issue where UnregisterForUpdate wouldn't fire
  • Fixed a few typos
  • Fixed some logic errors
  • Fixed an issue where the displayed cooldown is longer than intended
  • Removed title from tracker window
  • Removed Synergy names
  • Added a few libraries like LibAddonMenu-2.0 and LibStub
  • Added a settings menu
  • Added a preference setting to change the alignment of synergies
  • Added a slash command for toggling the tracker window (/asttoggle)
  • Added a slash command to enter the settings menu (/ast)

I'm currently working on hiding/showing synergies (e.g. tracking only orbs and blood altar) and an option to edit window's size.
There should probably be an update within the next couple of days.

cool, been waiting awhile for someone to make something like this. Using Auramastery for it was a bit clunky, and hard to walk people through setting it up.

I did prefer the visuals of Auramastery, though. Having slightly larger icons, with the cooldown text displayed on top of the icon, changing from yellow to red when 3 seconds are remaining. Would be nice if you added Shadow Silk Spiders.

Btw, Bone Shield and Blood Altar don't work. We tested with unmorphed Bone Shield and Overflowing Altar. Not sure if other morphs work or not.

Edit: Just did another test. Bone Surge synergy works. It's just the unmorphed one that doesn't work. Didn't test the other morph of Blood Altar, will do that as soon as I can.
Thanks for testing. Should work now. ^^

Looks promising but I would like to be disabled/hidden out of combat, out of group maybe? As an option of course maybe some people want to see synergies in town.

Thanks for the kind words

I have included most of your suggestions into the latest version. Things like letting the user decide which synergies he wants to see are implemented as soon as Wolfhunter is released.

or maybe some time after...

I will test a few things and upload the latest version in a few hours.

Hey, nice addon mate.

I would like to add something to liofa´s suggestions.

-Make it optional to display it in a vertical line (thats what i prefer and how i use it at the moment with aura mastery)
-Let us choose the size of the whole thingy
-Get rid of the Synergy names (optional)

Thanks again, looks good so far.

Thank You!

Tested this recently and it works very nicely ^^ I have few suggestions though.

First one is having different UI options. This window is kinda huge to be honest ^^ Maybe it's because of the name at the top, it has an unnecessarily big size. One thing that might help with this is letting us remove the texts in there. We don't necessarily need to see the "Energy Orb/Spear Shard" text because there is already a picture of the synergy. If it only had pictures and the countdowns next to them, it would be much more compact and easy on the eye.

I already saw the future plans such as letting us choose which ones we want to see. That definitely needs to happen in my opinion and would help the size issue I mentioned before.

Anyway, this looks great I hope you make it even better in the future for all tanking community ^^ Thanks again, I really appreciate it!
