Magic Runes

Example rune display

Addon Support Statement

Hello everyone. I'm no longer actively playing World of Warcraft (and haven't for many months). I'm looking for someone to take over maintenance of my addons. If you're interested, and have at least one released addon, send me a message at [email protected]

Addon Description
Magic Runes is a set of bars displaying rune cooldowns. It's meant as either a replacement or addition to the normal Blizzard rune display. For discussion please refer to the following forum thread:

Help localize Magic Runes

Changes in 1.0.89:

  • Now works on the 4.3 PTR. Note if you install libraries separately, you need to use the alpha version of LibBars-1.0 currently.

Changes in 1.0.80:

  • Core: Added color settings for the timer text and text label (separately).
  • Core: Added dot bars for Unholy Blight (off by default) and Scarlet Fever (on by default).
  • Core: Changed runic bar default color to match Blizzard runic power bar colors.
  • Core: Fix issue with max runic power not being updated correctly.

Changes in 1.0.75:

  • Fix for Blizzard rune bars reappearing when exiting a vehicle (not hiding correctly on first login).

Changes in 1.0.73:

  • Toc bump for 4.0.1

Changes in 1.0.71:

  • Config: Separated modules from the main configuration to make it clear that they are separate. Note that some settings are still inherited (while others are not). I plan to move the "core" Magic Runes addon to a module sometime in the near future.
  • RuneBars: Added option to hide icons.
  • RuneBars: Added option to arrange bar in a grid (1x6 to 6x1).
  • RuneBars: Added presets for various layouts.
  • Core: Actually added the Punished rune icons by Lichborne - the option to use them was there but it seems I forgot to actually add the icons.
  • RuneBars: Fix an issue where the rune bars would move from their intended position on load.
  • Fixed bug when changing rune icon style with the bars hidden.

    I have a Rune set I think is really nice that I created that I would like you to add to the sets already avalible. If you are interested in getting a .zip of these icons just message me at my listed email. I really like that Orb set you just added but I am gonna go edit the Alpha channel and make it tranparent if you want to pass my edited version back to the original creator for approval that would be awesome.

    This should be fixed (or worked around) in the latest version.
