Sorcerer Helper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.2.1
by: Vahrokh [More]
Sorcerer Helper
An addon for sorcerers that reminds you to keep your minions and buffs up, alerts you with a countdown when Crystal Fragments proc, and countdown for quite a few of your abilities with a duration.
Available for non-Sorcs, but currently only for common skills (no class skills except for Sorcerers yet).

Intro
This is a simple general update, skills timers update and bugfix to the useful yet long time abandoned Sorcerer Helper addon.
It has been tested to work on ESO Harrowstorm and its API.

Features
  • Alerts and Procs display a countdown of seconds remaining
  • Two display modes:
    • Two types of icons: Reminders (buffs) and Alerts & Procs, in two different windows
    • In slot order, for example it can be placed just above the skill bar
  • Scaleable icon sizes, for example alert icons twice the size of reminder icons
  • All abilities (buffs, procs & alerts) can be individually turned on or off
  • Option to hide when in menus
  • Option to show repositioning help, otherwise the position is locked
  • Selectable if it should load for non-sorcerer characters
  • Selectable if settings should be account wide (like today) or for each character (new in 2.5.1)
  • Sorcerer / Dark Magic
    • Crystal Fragments (proc)
    • Encase
    • Rune Prison
  • Sorcerer / Daedric Summoning
    • Unstable Familiar (buff)
    • Daedric Curse
    • Summons Winged Twilight (buff)
    • Bound Armor (buff)
    • Conjured Ward
  • Sorcerer / Storm Calling
    • Mages' Fury
    • Lightning Form
    • Lightning Splash
    • Surge
    • Bolt Escape
  • Weapon / Destruction Staff
    • Weakness of Elements
    • Wall of Elements (new in 2.5.0)
  • Weapon / Restoration Staff
    • Steadfast Ward
  • World / Soul Magic
    • Soul Trap
  • Guild / Fighters Guild
    • Expert Hunter
  • Guild / Mages Guild
    • Mage's Light (buff)
    • Entropy
  • Alliance War/ Assault
    • Magicka Detonation


Controls
  • Set "Show repositioning help" to ON in the settings
  • Left-click and drag to reposition the windows
  • Set "Show repositioning help" to OFF in the settings to get rid of the repositioning windows and lock the icons


Known Issues
  • Expert Hunter countdown doesn't extend (as the actual ability do)
  • Daedric Curse timer tracks from when it was cast, not from when it affects the target. As such, it might be off by a second or two depending on the distance to the target.
  • Timers need fine-tuning, for example some now depend also on skill rank
  • Ligtning Splash does not do a good job to detect when the cast is aborted and usually display countdown anyway
  • If you use redefine keys to mouse buttons, the abilities that is solely detected by the key detection routine will fail to be detected
  • Sometimes at load of new scene or mount/dismount, a timer might display in large icon. Remedy is to toogle the ability
  • There is a small memory leak, so after some time you might have to give command /RELOADUI to clear it out.


Possible Future Features
  • More abilities with a duration
  • Modify Mage's Fury depending on targets health above/below 20%
  • Display countdowns in time order, i.e. 1 sec left before the one with 2 sec left
  • Add class skills for non-sorcerers, for example:
    • Show proc for Nightblade assasins Merciful Resolve (similar to Crystal Fragments)
  • Summoned creature HP display (currently not possible as far as I know due to limitations in the game API)
  • Summoned pets now have abilities/buffs that can be activated. If game API allows tracking of this on the pets (I have some doubts) these could also be shown with a timer kind of like how daedric curse works. For example:
    • Familiar Damage Pulse (4 sec PBAOE)
    • Empower Twilight Tormentor (15 second 50% damage buff to pet)
  • Cosmetic issue when you scale the icons to 100%, you can see the border frame. If you scale it bigger, you can't see this any more. Maybe add an option to show/hide border and let it scale with the ability icon size.

Hello,

thank you!

For now I have made it working, I'll see what can I do to improve it. I can't do any promise, as I am not a proper LUA developer and my time is really, really limited.
