Auracle (De)Buff Monitor

20 - Identifying buffs with the same name

First of all, this addon has been a great help in min-maxing my dps. I use it to check short time procs and here comes the problem: The 2 piece proc from Tier 9.25 for Deathknights has the same buff name as the proc from the runeforge. I have tried filling in spellids for these, but the spellid gets translated to the buffname by auracle and when you have these 2 buffs available at the same time (this is what I check for max disease damage and reapply diseases to keep them rolling with glyph of disease) only one of them will be shown in any of the trackers.

So my wish is :
- I want to be able to create 2 trackers which will show different buffs with the same name (Unholy Strength in this case), the possible solution I see is leaving the spellids and not translate them to the buffname

    They renamed the Death Knight common buffs :2 piece proc, sigil proc as well us the runeforge were named Unholy Strength before. They are called Unholy Force, Unholy Might and Unholy Strength now.

    I think the only way to do this is to identify auras by icon as well as name. Doing that would mean overhauling how auras-to-be-tracked are defined in general, which would allow for more flexibility, but isn't a simple change.

    So, this is possible, but probably won't happen right away. Of course, the more people who want this (and vote on this ticket), the sooner I'll get to it.
