Who's tanking - frames

WTFrames in (testing-)action

oUF based!

This addon is based on (embedded) oUF!

version < 1.32:
it requires you to install oUF (download from wowinterface.com).
Sorry about this dependency, but it shouldn't be that critical.


Since oRA3 doesn't provide MT-Target Frames anymore, i decided to write this addon.

The main goal is to display oRA3 sortable Maintank/Playertank target frames.


V 1.2. Add Font options (Font face + font size)
V 1.32 oUF embedded!
V 1.40 Add Grow upwards and Grow left
V 1.50 Update for oUF 1.4 changes

Warning: Includes oUF 1.4 (Not backwards compatible with 1.3.x layouts!!). If you are using oUF 1.3.x addons, please update them or stick to WTFrames 1.40.



TODO / Wishlist

  • Config (Grow-direction, preview optimizations, ...)

WARNING!! for the latest versions (>= 1.1)

You should reload your UI after chaning some options!! (Instead of hitting "apply" all the time).

    v1.61 is extremely "lazy" in responding to clicks...

    By lazy I mean it requires upwards of 2-3 clicks to target the tank (or tank target) when you click on wtframes.

    Occasionally it will stop responding completely. I've gotten the same complaint from other raiders in my team using the oRA3+WTFrames combo.

    For my own setup I have to say there are no lua errors and no taint (I run with taintLog enabled). Still the frames do not respond to clicks and that makes them practically useless atm. (people mainly use them to be able to assist tanks easily)

    Any others have the same problem?

    It would be realy nice too get oRA2 TankFrames included. So we are prepared for all eventualities :)

    Are the "Personal Tanks" from oRA3 shown?

    EDIT: Just forget it. :) They aren't shown in party, but in raid everything is fine!

    Sorry, not possible at the moment, the MTs are imported from oRA3

    Is it possible to add Keybinding to the MT Targets, and assign them independent from a Raid, let say for 5man groups? I use Mainassist at the moment, but that addon is extremly outdated. Would be nice to have yours with the same usablility.

    Absolutely love this addon! It makes oRA3 viable for all those who loved the MT frames. Now we don't have any more excuses. :)

    Is there a possibility to add a highlight to the tank's target when you have the same target as he/she has? I remember oRA2 had something like it and I really loved it.
    Anyway, great work so far. :)
