    Arrows are not working for any of us in 10man lich king encounter. Any suggestions to fix this?

    Would it be possible to apply a mark to the 5 Blood Beast summoned during Heroic Saurfang 25? I know the spell casts are 5 individual IDs, just not sure how to code the Encounters.lua to be able to do it if possible when I attempted. The raw combat log of the summon is:

    2/24 01:56:43.689  SPELL_CAST_SUCCESS,0xF1500093B5001C39,"Deathbringer Saurfang",0xa48,0x0000000000000000,nil,0x80000000,72172,"Call Blood Beast",0x21
    2/24 01:56:43.689  SPELL_SUMMON,0xF1500093B5001C39,"Deathbringer Saurfang",0xa48,0xF13000966C001CB5,"Blood Beast",0xa28,72172,"Call Blood Beast",0x21

    and failed attempt at making it mark was:

    bloodbeastmark = {
    				varname = SN[72172],
    				type = "MULTIENEMY",
    				persist = 10,
    				reset = 8,
    				unit = "#4#",
    				icon = 4,
    				total = 5,


    -- Call Blood Beast
    				type = "combatevent",
    				eventtype = "SPELL_SUMMON",
    				-- There are five different spellids for this
    				-- 72172, 72173, 72356, 72357, 72358
    				spellid = {
    					72172, -- 25
    				execute = {

    How would I go about putting an icon on someone's head when they are targeted by the boss?

    Basically I want to add to the Marrowgar fight when someone is targeted by the boss for bone storm so a mark goes out over there head as he is spinning toward that person.

    Silly question, but possible to add a countdown (til he becomes active bar to the Saurfang fight? There's a few fights which has it. Would seem to make sense for Saurfang but dunno. =) Thanks!

    @Dieh: It's not possible to get the targets. I could only find a way to detect when it was cast.

    @suicidalkatt: I commented out Blood Queen's map coordinates. I'm not sure how it consumed a ton of resources. It shouldn't be throwing any errors all ll that would have happened was a 0 yard distance being calculated. Edit: Also, if the coords aren't found it should default to CheckInteractDistance.

    Is it possible to add a mark or a /say on Malleable Goo targets on Festergut hardmode? (Just like on professor putricide)

  • Avatar of suicidalkatt suicidalkatt Feb 23, 2010 at 18:01 UTC - 0 likes

    Not sure if you've updated the Blood Queen coords or not, but there should be some kind of preventative system for the range window if coords cannot be found.

    Some people have been getting rather large CPU / Memory consumption from the range finder in that area.

    @senomar1h: It sounds like your combat log is breaking. You have to relog to fix it or try typing /script CombatLogClearEntries(). I haven't tried this myself but the general consensus is that the script command works.

    @Niightblade: You could modify Media.lua and change the r,g,b values for BLACK. If you'd like something better you should make a ticket about it.

    @escafoxx: It's currently not possible. You should make a ticket about it.

    @bobbythecount: Tear Gas doesn't have a set duration. It could be wrong up to plus or minus four seconds. I took the average time it lasted (16 seconds).

    @Daeryon: It's not possible to point an arrow to a npc.

    @coreanism: I forgot to add Toravon to the .toc. It should be fixed in the latest alpha.

    @ramalina: I'll add it soon. I don't know why I didn't.

    i really like this addon, but occasionally timer-bars do not spawn for me. some guild mates have this problem too. since we are working on the lich king encounter there are sometimes no timers or defile-/s-warnings at all. after a couple of ui-reloads or wow restarts, the addon is back to normal, but not allways. really frustrating :/ the pane-timer starts, lich king is loaded, but no bars spawn. there are no lua errors. any clues?

    Is it possible to remove "black" as a text warning colour please? 90% of people I know use a full-black chat window. It's a pain having to configure every encounter...
