Skada Damage Meter

352 - No world boss segments

What steps will reproduce the problem?
Engage a world boss; Ordos, Celestials or any of the older ones.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect Skada to create a boss segment.

What version of the product are you using?
latest alpha (r486 at time of posting)

Do you have an error log of what happened?
No lua error, this is a side-effect of LibBossIDs removal in r481 and later.

    Fixed in r518, by rolling back r481

    <<reply 2032438>>

    That is correct.
    I should have clarified in the ticket description this is in relation to the "only keep boss fights" option.

    @funkydude: Go

    I assume the original poster is using the "Only keep boss fights" option to discard non-boss segments. So we still need to accurately determine what fights contain a boss (be it a world boss or heroic 5-man boss).

    We have functionality for grabbing the first encountered mob and using it as the segment name (this is how trash works) and it doesn't place any form of bias on what the mob is. If anything, it should be more accurate on world bosses as there's only 1 mob. This is our "backup" for no engage events. I'll need to look into this.

    I believe this was caused by r481:

    Shouldn't need LibBossIds any more. 5 man aren't really important enough to drag it along. Could add a UnitName("boss1") check if it really becomes an issue.

    The new ENCOUNTER_START event does not fire for any outdoor world bosses (and possibly other bosses as well). Nor does the "boss1" unit operate for these bosses or most 5-man bosses. IMO this commit should be rolled back.

    This change has also made comparing test runs on the "boss" target dummies harder.
    You have to enable "keep all segments" if you want to do several passes to test a new trinket or a priority variation etc.
