Code's Combat Alerts  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.4.3
by: code65536 [More]
Code's Combat Alerts provides notifications and alerts for a selection of PvE mechanics.



Configuration:

There are not many configuration options for this addon. You can type the /cca command into chat to see a list of available options and commands.
  • /cca move – This will cause the status display—which is used by some features such as timers—to appear for 20 seconds so that it can be repositioned outside of combat. To reposition, simply drag it around with your mouse. The status display can also be repositioned when it appears in actual use.
  • /cca crushing – This will toggle on or off the Crushing Darkness alert aura in Cloudrest (default: on)

What this addon works for:

Taking Aim
  • Although the visual cue for this mechanic is glaringly obvious and difficult to miss, the cue is designed to aid in the interrupt of Taking Aim. If the enemy could not be interrupted, timing a dodge roll is difficult because the ability has an extremely long windup of 9 seconds (5s in Halls), and the secondary visual cue—the enemy lowering their bow to aim and the intensification of the orange glow—still happens far too long before the actual cast, which means that dodge rolls based on that secondary visual cue would still happen too early.
  • This addon will sound an audible alert to signal the need to dodge 1.6s before the actual cast, and players should time their dodge on that cue.
  • If the enemy is interrupted or killed before the 1.6s remaining mark, there will be no alert of any sort; i.e., there is no alert of the start of a Taking Aim cast. Most Taking Aims are interrupted, so there is no point in adding unnecessary noise; the alert is sounded only in those exceptional cases where an interrupt still had not happened with only 1.6s remaining.

Various Dodge Roll Mechanics
  • This addon will sound an audible alert to signal the need to dodge specific mechanics. Most dodgeable attacks will not generate an alert. The goal of this addon is to fill the gaps in specific cases where the game's visual cues are insufficient or difficult to use. Things like Nerien'eth's and Voriak's "skull attacks" in Crypt of Hearts II and Maelstrom or Skoria's fireball in City of Ash II all have good, well-designed visual cues, and I see little reason to have alerts for them.
  • Spindleclutch I: Web Blast and Arachnophobia
  • Spindleclutch II: Enervating Seal
  • Fungal Grotto II: Shadow Bolt
  • Dragonstar Arena: Lethal Arrow (if it is not interrupted quickly enough)
  • Falkreath Hold: Fiery Blast (if not targeting the tank)

Maelstrom Arena
  • Alert for the spawn of Webspinners in stage 6
  • Dodge alert for Ball Lightning in stage 7

Maw of Lorkhaj
  • Status display, visible only to players with the tank role, to show the degree of the Armor Weakened debuff from the Hulks' Thunderous Smash ability during the Rakkhat encounter in Veteran Maw of Lorkhaj
    • You can drag this status display around with your mouse to reposition it.
    • This tracks all players who have the debuff and the degree of each of those player's debuff, so a main tank can see when their tanking partner has been hit with two smashes.

Scalecaller Peak
  • Audible alert for Pestilent Breath cones
  • Alert for Inferno's Hold that identifies who the target will be (although Zaan does look in the direction of her intended victim, it is sometimes impossible to discern who that is when players are stacked closely together)

Fang Lair
  • Dodge alert for Clash of Bones (to help with the slightly unusual timing of dodging these attacks)
  • Timer that counts down to when the Cadaverous Senche-Tiger will do its Death Grip mechanic (if the senche has been put down, the timer will count down to when it will reawaken, because Death Grip is the first thing that it will do immediately upon reawakening)
    • You can drag this timer around with your mouse to reposition it.
    • This timer counts down to when the senche initially fears its victim, which is the point at which the victim loses control of their character. The actual interruptible Death Grip mechanic follows about a second later.
    • Additionally, at the start of the initial fear, an alert will be displayed that identifies the victim.

Cloudrest
  • Timer for the Shade of Z'Maja's Baneful Burst mechanic
    • The first Baneful Burst comes approximately 10s after the arrival of the Shade
    • Subsequent Baneful Bursts typically happen every 22-24s
    • Occasionally, a Baneful Burst can happen as late as 30s after the previous one, if it is preempted by a Roaring Flare
    • The timer is color-coded:
      • The timer is normally white
      • The timer turns blue approximately 4s before the start of the Baneful Burst cast animation
      • The timer turns purple approximately 2s before the start of the Baneful Burst cast animation
      • The timer turns pink and will say "Incoming" once the cast animation for Baneful Burst starts
      • The timer will turn back to white once the cast is completed
      • If the Baneful Burst is preempted by a Roaring Flare, the timer will indicate that the mechanic is awaiting the completion of the Flare; Z'Maja will start to cast Baneful Burst within 1s or less after the Flare completes.
  • Color-coded display of the current distance between two Roaring Flares during execute phase
    • Video demonstrating this feature (the video's description also contains commentary about the usage of this feature)
    • Roaring Flares have a radius of 3.5m
    • The display will be color-coded red if there is substantial overlap of the two flares (less than 6m apart)
    • The display will be color-coded orange if there is minor overlap of the two flares (6-7m apart)
    • The display will be color-coded yellow if there is no overlap of the two flares, but they are uncomfortably close (7-7.5m apart)
    • The display will be color-coded green if the two flares are a comfortably safe distance apart (more than 7.5m apart)
    • This will allow groups to quickly determine at a glance, up to 2.5s before the circular flare telegraphs even appear, whether or not movement is necessary
  • Status display, visible only to players with the tank or healer role, to show the degree of the Preyed Upon effect from the gryphon when engaging the side bosses individually
    • This effect determines the severity of the bleed; it if reaches a high level, a tank will require extra attention from the healers
  • Alert, visible only to the player who has taunt on Z'Maja, for the Shade of Relequen's Shocking Smash (this eliminates the need for the off tank to call out "Sparkles" for the main tank)
  • The player who is not the main tank and who has Crushing Darkness will be reminded of this for the duration of the effect in the form of a faint green aura around the edges of their screen
    • This feature is intended for cases where Crushing Darkness spawns in group, and the initial spawn message is missed or otherwise overlooked
    • This feature can be disabled with the /cca crushing chat command

March of Sacrifices
  • Dodge alert for a number of trash mob heavy attacks that are capable of 1-shotting players through block
  • Block alert for Shield Charge
  • Dodge alert for Trapping Bolt (if it is not interrupted quickly enough)
  • Dodge alert for Fiery Remnant
  • Dodge alert for Slaughtering Strike
  • Dodge alert for Fetid Globule (its long animation complicates the timing of this dodge)
  • Status alert for the start of the Electric Water and Venomous Spores mechanics

Moon Hunter Keep
  • Dodge alert for a number of trash mob heavy attacks that are capable of 1-shotting players through block
  • Dodge alert for Root Stomp (for the Root of the Problem achievement)
  • Alert for when it's time to switch taunt on Ary and Zel; this switch shortly precedes their AoE Pounce ability, which will be alerted as well

Frostvault
  • Dodge alert for Crushing Blow
  • Dodge alert for Reverberating Smash (Tzogvin's reckless charge)
  • Dodge alert for Bola Ball (Tzogvin's tether, which can be avoided entirely if dodged)
  • Dodge alert for Hammer
  • Dodge alert for Targeted Salvo (if it is not interrupted quickly enough)
  • Dodge alert for Whipping Bolts (intended for groups that choose to kill the fire arm first in hard mode)
  • Status alert for the ignition of the Whirring Blade Trap
  • Timer for Enfeebling Effluvium
    • When Enfeebling Effluvium is active, the timer will be white and will count down to when the effect will end
    • After Enfeebling Effluvium ends, the timer will be green and will count up to when the effect will restart (in 15s), turning orange after 12s
  • Timer for the Skeevaton phase in Hard Mode

Depths of Malatar
  • Warning for incoming Decrepify (so players can top off their health before the defile sets in)

That sounds like a lag issue.

CCA does not alert poison. That's Raid Notifier.

Raid Notifier already handles those mechanics.

I personally think that the visual cues are quite ample. The boss has the heavy attack telegraph, and there is a very hard to miss circle at your feet that specifically helps you time the dodge roll. Even when the boss unexpectedly targets me with that ability (like when the tank goes down), I've never found it difficult to notice and react. Because I feel that the existing cues are sufficient (and the timing is quite generous), I have no plans to add this.

I'll add that at to some future version. The heavy attack animation is more subtle and hard to see when there are a lot of adds obstructing your view. I'll make sure the notification is suppressed if the victim is already blocking.
Thank you very much !!!

Also if it's in any way possible , I think the heavy attack of the boss shadow during hunt phase in MoS would be great to have. I have been caught many times because when I am walking toward the traps they attack me from behind and it's a one shot...Having a sound to dodge these would be quite useful.

In any way thanks a lot for your work

Hmm, thanks for that report. Almost all of the text used in the alerts come from the game itself. E.g., the addon doesn't say "Electric Water", it instead asks the game what the name of the electric water ability is, and then displays that name. This is so that the names are localized, if there are localized versions of those names for other languages. Apparently, according to your screenshot, ZOS added gender-identification tags to these names ("^f" means female and "^n" means neutral, for example) in the non-English versions of the game. This is a bit surprising since these tags aren't found in the English version (and I didn't know that we cared about the gender of electric water).

I'll make sure these tags are filtered out in a future version.

Yah there are lots of them in the list that meet your criteria, hard to filter them out now... For the ones that don't maybe you coud create its own category and add ingame options that are disable by default so that you can choose what things you want to see. Or maybe you coud make ingame options where I can create and save my own timers to hide/add specific alerts with a white/blacklist.

[Also, the "long" and "short" designation in my addon's data file refer to how the addon behaves when it detects that an ability is being cast. Abilities marked as "short" are notified immediately when detected. Abilities marked as "long" are abilities are notified later, closer to when the ability actually fires, so that players don't dodge too early, and there is additional logic to cancel the notification if the attacker is interrupted, stunned, or killed. Timing for notifications are calculated from in-game data and are not hard-coded in (the numbers in my list are option flags, not timings).]

Extra dodges notice

Hi ,

Great addon , Very useful in Fang Lair !!

Any chance you could had a audio cue for Fang Lair's last boss beetles ? ( I understand the game gives a visual cue but adding audio would be very useful when there's a lot going on in HM last phase)

Also would you consider adding Falkreath Hold Last Boss heavy attack audio Q aswell ?


Thanks again for the great work

The addon's dodge roll alerts will sound the dodge notification 1.6 seconds before the attack lands, which is early enough for the player to react, but not so early that the attack lands after the player's dodge immunity has worn off.

Clash of Bones has a windup time of 2.25 seconds. The addon is basically waiting 0.65s before alerting you. A countdown makes no sense here.
Ok. I had two hit me within a about a 2 second window at the end, and I was just thinking of possible ways the addon could have helped me to survive it.

Nice addon btw, thanks for making it.

A countdown might work better for Clash of Bones.

This is intended. I did not include the final boss's skull attack because it's already well-telegraphed and easy to dodge. When you see the blue swirls around your body, he's about to fire it off and you can dodge it; you don't even need to have your eyes on the boss.

In contrast, the Wamasu's attack is notified because the tell on it is more ambiguous and sometimes not visible (particularly when it initially spawns and is rendered halfway below the ground), and the Taking Aim is notified because the timing is difficult to judge visually and is very easy to dodge too early.
Thanks. Would be nice to have an option for the final boss skulls both upstairs and down because often you are not facing the boss.

As I just noted, you don't need to even look at the boss. There is already an in-game notification that the projectile is coming, in the form of the blue swirls around your body that grow in intensity.
How hard is it to add? I might try to add the notify to the LUA code myself. It would make it a lot easier for vma. Most of the time with the lag the effects don't even show up anyway.
