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 built-in modes can all be toggled on/off.

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.

"Skada" is Swedish for "Damage".

    Is it possible to make skada ignore the "Essence of Dreams" buff on Ultraxion? This would be a nice solution to stopping it lag during the encounter when healers grab that buff.

    Thanks. But seems like the project is abandoned. Anyway, Skada is my favorite damage meter addon, thank you!

    I have my skada windows on the right side of my interface. So the left-justified title bar text seems kinda ... misplaced.

    Please put it back to the center. Or give an option for the alignment. Or tell me which line of the code i've to edit ^^

    Shift-rightclick anywhere in the window to bring up the menu.

    With the new Title Bar, its easy to report , select mode, etc. But since the new title bar, i no longer see the little Wheel (config icon), in the upper right hand corner to allow reporting when you choose to keep the Title Bar hidden.

    Is there a /slash command to pull this up? Currently i have to /skada config, enable the title bar, then i have access to the reporting options.
