Scorchio! 2

Scorchio2 tracks Living Bomb, Nether Tempest, Frost Bomb, Ignite, Pyroblast, Slow, Combustion, and Polymorph on multiple mobs, and can give you warnings and notifications when the debuffs need reapplying, or have expired completely. Unlike many other DoT timer addons, it properly tracks DoT spreading from Inferno Blast. It can also provide bars for the following buffs/debuffs for the mage: Arcane Charge, Arcane Missiles!, Arcane Power, Brain Freeze, Fingers of Frost, Heating Up, Icy Veins, Pyroblast!, and Flamestrike. It can also provide a duration bar for Mirror Images.

It is the continuation of Scorchio! and replaces that addon.

Use /scorchio2, or the Blizzard Addons Configuration window to configure Scorchio2.
