AiM's Synergy Tracker  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.2
by: AiMPlAyEr [More]

This Addon depends on the following libraries:
You can download them like any Addon

Version 4.0 HealerUI
This feature only works in raids (probably in dungeons too, didn't had the time to test it)!
In PVP it only adds players to the frame and does nothing else.
Im currently working on disabling it for anything beside trials (and dungeons).

Gitub: https://github.com/AiMPlAyEr/AiMs-Synergy-Tracker

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 Synergy Tracker" (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.

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!
