Skada Damage Meter

Damage mode

Skada is a modular damage meter with various viewing modes. It is inspired mainly by Assessment, but also by Recount.

Skada sports segmented fights and detailed views, while being highly efficient with memory. This is accomplished by aggregating data on fight segments.

Skada is entirely modular; the modes listed below are all separate addons. Only the modes you load adds to the memory and CPU cycles used.

Features:

  • Automatic mode switching when entering combat. For example, you can have Threat mode be shown in combat. Skada can switch back after combat ends.
  • Specific fight segments can be kept indefinately.
  • Multiple windows. Each window can be configured fully.
  • Threat mode can warn on high threat.
  • Modes: Damage done, DPS, Threat, Enemy damage done, Enemy damage taken, Healing, Overhealing, Total healing, Absorbs estimated, Damage taken, Dispels, Mana regen, Debuff uptimes, and more.
  • Reports can be done everywhere. For example, you can report a certain player's Debuff uptimes.
  • Summary information for most modes (DPS, HPS, Fails, etc) in a LDB view/minimap button.
  • LDB data feed can show personal/raid DPS or personal threat.
  • Support for SharedMedia and Class Colors.

Skada is very easy to extend, and there are many "plug-in" addons out there that add functionality, such as:

There is a page with API information here.

Usage:

Navigation in Skada is done by "drilling down" to the information you want. You go to a lower level, showing more detailed information, by clicking on it, and you go to a higher level by right-clicking.

The top level is the list of all saved fight segments. The second level is the list of all available data modes, such as Damage Done. The third level is one of these modes. Most modes let you drill down for further details. Some modes have several detailed views. In this case you choose alternate views by holding certain keys pressed while clicking. For example, in Damage mode, you can Shift-click a player to see what enemies the player caused damage to. Tooltips will display how to reach the different views.

You can also use window buttons for selecting fight segment and mode directly.

Scrolling in Skada is done with the mousewheel.

New Skada windows can be created from the configuration screen. Each window can be separately configured. A popular feature is "Mode switching", which lets Skada automatically switch to a specific mode on entering combat.

There is a forum thread for discussion on Skada. All suggestions and bug reports are very welcome.

"Skada" is Swedish for "Damage".

    Looks pretty nice so far.

    Font and scale customization would be awesome. Nice job!

    I like how when you break down the information your skills have their respective icons next to em =D

    Would like to see the option to customize the text display on the damage bars.

    Be able to just see [damage/dps] or just [damage] versus the default:

    [damage/dps/percentage]

    This would then allow for larger scale bars that don't cause the text on the damage bars to be truncated.

    Thanks.

    Would it be possible to track Damage Shields? Specifically Priest/Paladin (Sacred Shield procs)?

    This could either be a separate module or incorporated into Healing Done module (as it effectively produces the same result....a tank kept alive).

    Also, what about a mana regen module, to track how much mana was regenerated in a fight and from what source. I know Assessment and Recount both have/had a similar module to this effect so the combat logs output enough information.

    Both the Alpha and Release versions seem to be broken for the DPS sections. The alpha version (r168) throws Damage.lua:361: table index is nil bug, i'll get the lua error from the release version asap.
