Light Attack Helper
Version: 3.3
by: kafeijao [More]
Light Attack Helper is a tool that helps you track your light attacks, it does this by incrementing a counter each time you actually hit a light attack.

When you start to do light attack weaving normally you either do it too fast or too slow, the ideal is doing as fast as possible but still having the light attacks to register, this is where this addon comes in handy, to help you finding the sweet spot.

Since these days the light attacks are the most damaging ability, one of the best ways to improve dps is actually to perform better your light attack weaving. Light attack weaving is always using a light attack in between your skill abilities, this paired with animation canceling of the light attacks makes your damage spike, you can check on youtube for videos about Elder Scrolls Online animation canceling for further information.

The la/s is the light attacks per second from a fight. So if you want to push yourself try to increase this number as much as possible in your fights. I am tracking the light attacking information from the server, so the times will be influenced by your latency(ping), and the latency(ping) is not very constant so you might find a bit of floating values.

You can use /laprintfull to see the statistics from the parse, for example the max and min values to see if your parse was falwless, for example if you get a minimum lower than 800ms probably it means that you did 2 light attacks without a skill in between, and if the maximum is higher than 1800 probably means that you used two skills without a light attack in between (This of course depends on the skills used, as channeled skills will have a much longer light attack time in between).

Commands:
  • /laprint - Prints the last combat's light attack / s ratio.
  • /laprintfull - Prints the last combat's full statisctics.
  • /lapost - Posts to the chat the last combat's light attack / s ratio (send to people).
  • /lapostfull - Posts to the chat the last combat's full statisctics (send to people)
  • /lareset - Resets the light attack counter to 0.


Notes:
1. The counter for ranged attacks will increment as soon as you shoot the light attack (if it knows it will hit) instead of when it actually hits, if it was on actual hit it would count the light attack after you barswap (if you do bar swap animation cancel) which feels a bit weird if you have the option to reset on barswap.

Warning: If it doesn't work on Japanese client, send a comment. I have no access to the Japanese client as it is geolocked to Japan only, so I can't test nor get the data I need to fix it.

I haven't thought about that problem, I'll try to fix it.

Edit: The workaround previously posted doesn't work.
I updated the addon and now should work on German and French clients. Japanese client needs testing (and if doesn't work help to get some values).

I clicked on this thinking it was a tool to help me visually see by a counter when I successfully did animation canceling. It kinda does I guess? Not really but works well enough for what it is. I would like to see an update with those options please. Good add-on though.
I'm glad you like it

I have updated it yesterday, there is already the option to change color, font, size and outline.

I wanted to do something more useful for animation canceling, and I have tried it, but because of API limitations this was not possible for me, as I can not receive from the server (in a general way) the information that a skill was successfully used, it would be possible if I deal individually with all the possible skills to use, but there are way too many skills to do this . So I decided to keep it simple.

As for the heavy attacks, you can animation cancel heavy attacks perfectly all the time, so adding another tracker for it seems a bit too much for that. If you want you can look at this video, it's kinda old but this is how you perfectly heavy attack, it's way way easier comparing to lights attacks and you get it perfectly all the times.

Basically just hold the left mouse button, and as soon you start to see the heavy attack starting press the skill you want to use 1 time and it will shoot the skill immediately after the heavy attack, because it got queued.
If you want to weave multiple heavy attacks in a row, just keep the left mouse button pressed and all the time you see the heavy attack start hit the skill u want to use.
