Ingela's Absorb Tracker

Updated for 4.2. Please report any errors or bugs.


Ingela's Absorb Tracker is an addon that tracks the current absorb amount on your target.

It currently tracks:

  • Power Word: Shield
  • Divine Aegis
  • Illuminated Healing
  • Blood Shield
  • Sacred Shield
  • Ice Barrier
  • Guarded by the Light

Still not sure what to do about Savage Defense.

Ingela's Absorb Tracker also have Tank mode which makes the addons to see only your own current absorbs. Useful if you're a tank and need to time cooldowns with absorbs!

Ingame commands are /at or /absorbtracker

To do:
  • Find out what to do about Savage Defense.
  • Maybe add some kind of animation to know when it changes done
  • Add so it shows when you mouse over something
  • Check list to enable/disable which spellIDs you want to be tracked.

    Is it ok to modify the code or do I have to put in a request for change? Would love to have Living Seed tracked as well as Savage Defense.

    I have a local copy that is working for these absorbs. Wasn't sure what your copyright license terms are. Thanks!

    Would find it really useful if you could track absorbs of different targets at once. I use this right now while tanking to keep track of my own absorbs. Would be nice if i could also track my Focus target which usually is my co-tank.

    I'm developing my own AddOn and I'm planning on releasing it to the public. My AddOn also tracks absorb values. I used some of your code as inspiration(to be more specific, the tooltip scanning) but I have altered it afterwards.

    Can I have your permission to release it (your license forces me to do so) and/or maintain my AddOn?

    No problem! Please continue to report errors so I can fix them :) If you have any suggestions to the addon feel free to post them as well!

    Hi, that's weird that shouldn't happen. Try r18, I moved around some code, that should possibly fix it. I'll see about adding another frame for target and yourself :)

    and a little suggestion, is it possible to track the shiled on myself and on my target?

    thx rza
