Acheron

Acheron UI "Acheron translates as the "river of woe" and it was believed to be a branch of the underworld river Styx over which in ancient Greek mythology Charon ferried the newly dead souls across into Hades." Acheron provides an easily readable glimpse into the cause of death for anyone in your raid or party. In addition to the damage and healing that occurred to someone up to their moment of death, Acheron also allows you to track and displays buffs and debuffs, which may also contribute to someone's death (Melt Armor on Al'ar, Corrosion on Felmyst, tank missed shield block, etc). Right-clicking on a raid/party member unit frame will find a new option 'Show Death Reports'. Should be pretty self-explanatory from there. /acheron show to show the main UI /acheron config to bring up the config Official Thread: http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=13575

    Fix for all heals being reported as crits (The crit flag was moved some patches ago):

    Acheron.lua line 495. Change

    isCrit = select(6, ...)

    to

    isCrit = select(7, ...)

    I took over because I needed some changes to finally release Acheron_Graph, I will maintain the addon if it breaks and maybe implement some more features when/if I find some times (I would especially like to add a fight per fight filtering feature). The addon is in a very mature state anyway, it has not broken in 6 months...

    I'd love to see this updated

    Hi Nickodemus,

    As I see it you have stopped supporting Acheron which is still working perfectly (there are a few tickets pending but they are few). I finally have more time to invest into coding and would love to take over maintenance and finally release my Acheron_Graph idea. If you're willing please transfer rights to me if/when you see this.

    Regards, Mok

    To my knowledge this is the best death analysis addon out there as it actually provides a user friendly interface. It does not make you scroll miles through a combat log and provides the data in a convenient way, especially if the encounter was a few hours or even just minutes ago. I really hope some one will pick it up soon :D.

    Hey WoWAce community!

    I'm looking for someone to take over Acheron maintenance and development. Unfortunately, I just don't have time anymore to do any addon development (I haven't even had time to download the latest patch!). If you're interested, send me a message or make a post and I'll get back to you about a transfer of ownership. Thanks and happy developing!
