GarajalInnervation opens a frame during the Garajal encounter that displays information about the amount of the Spiritual Innervation buff applied to players. This overcomes the limitation that Blizzard implemented this buff as a non-stacking one, and the only way in the stock UI to tell how much buff one has is to examine the tooltip text, which can be most cumbersome during a raid encounter!
The addon is lightweight and does very little in the background if not in Mogu'shun Vaults and not in the Gara'jal encounter.
- Display Spiritual Innervation strength for all players in the raid: This is primarily intended for raid leaders or healers. Healers can prioritize heals easily to buff all DPS efficiently.
- Can display Spiritual Innervation strength for only yourself: Intended for DPS players in raid groups that want them to exit when their buff has reached a certain level.
- Notification of maximum buff attained: Have DPS players that don't want to use this addon and you want them to exit when the healer has topped them off? This feature will notify players via whisper, or the raid via /raid or /rw, when a player has reached maximum buff level. This feature is only usable by the raid leader or assistants and is disabled in LFR mode
- Small and lightweight: The whole add-on is only a few hundred lines of Lua code and is nearly entirely disabled when not in the Gara'jal encounter.
How to Use
After installing the addon, use the configuration menu (under Interface Options, Addons Tab, GarajalInnervation tree entry, or use /gvation command) to select a display mode - either all players or yourself only. Self-only mode is recommended for DPS players who are not raid leaders, while the all player mode is recommended primarily for healers and raid leaders. Click the "Toggle Frame" button to show the GarajalInnervation frame - position it to your liking on the screen by dragging anywhere in the window, then toggle it off again with the same button. The frame will be hidden until you are in the Gara'jal encounter and when shown will retain the positioning.
While in the configuration, if you will be your raid's leader, you can optionally enable the notification messages to DPS players when their buff has reached capacity. This only works outside of LFR mode and only when you are raid leader or an assist. This function is also disabled if you are using the "self only" display mode.
