  • About CombustionHelper
  •  

The goal of this addon is to allow easy optimizing of the new version of the mage talent Combustion in Cataclysm. It tracks all relevant Dots on your target, your cooldown of Combustion and the range so you'll be able to use the talent with maximum effectiveness.

To summarize the new talent : it will add a new Dot on effect on your target which will be equal to the sum of all existing fire Dots.

With this addon, you'll know if one of your Dot is missing.

Use Interface Panel -> Addons for full config or /combustionhelper for bringing up directly the option panel. You can enable Bar timers and set color and width, you can now also adjust value for red zone timers

Featuring :

  • Automatic switch depending if combustion is in your spellbook or not and if frostfire glyph is present or not.
  • Impact mode. When combustion is on cd, it will check for dots on target and color the background and border in yellow to show when impact is up along with impact timer.
  • Autohide out of combat is off by default, use config panel to configure it. You can choose between no autohide, autohide out of combat or autohide when combustion is on cd.
  • Critical Mass/Shadow mastery tracker, it's on by default and you can disable/enable again with config panel.
  • Reset variables option because i know some of you like to bug the thing by switching options while in combat/autohide is running and stuff. If you bug it, just reset and log off so you start with a clean state.
  • Option to hide all config messages in chat.
  • Warning mode for early Living bomb refresh and missed LB.
  • Dot tick damage report mode. This is not the expected combustion damage report because of the complexity of ignite, rather an information about how much damage the last tick did so you know if it's powerful enough. The dot damage report total dot damage with a threshold you can set manually in the option panel to have the total damage line switch colors when crossing the specified limit. Threshold dot value now affect background color changes if enabled.
  • Pyroblast/Hot Streak report mode which will warn you when wasted an Hot Streak proc will letting it be refreshed before getting used and at end of combat will report with number of Pyro casted with number and percentage and Hot Streak gained.
  • Timer for Combustion Dot on target.
  • Multiple Living bomb tracking with impact support. You may observe a small difference between timer and real duration, it happen when the addon can't retrieve the correct info from your target, mouseover, focus or group/raid member's target. In this case it'll use predetermined timing but will still remove timer upon explosion. Support raid marker and current target symbol to multiple LB tracker (raid markers aren't supported yet when using impact).

NEW : Flamestrike tracker supporting regular flamestrike and blastwave Flamestrike.
NEW : Tooltips for option panel settings, no more obscure settings.
NEW : Ignite munching report, so you know how much damage you lost because of buggy mechanics.
NEW : Ignite damage predicter (BETA), instant info of you upcoming ignite damage (check option panel for info)
NEW : 4.1 compatibility.
NEW : Scale settings start from 50% size to 300%.

TO COME : Next version will feature all the graphical options you've asked for, no more lousy tooltip (though i love it).

Donation is totally optional but all funds will be used to buy chocolate for my wife so she'll be a bit less mad at me spending so much time coding.


TODO
Add warning sound when dots/treshold are good
Report of combustion damage
add a config window for alpha
AutoHide when mounted
Pyromaniac tracker with uptime report

  • I'm wondering if the reason that the window doesn't go green for combustion when all dots are up but one is below 2~ seconds is because it is just simply not recommended due to the short amount of time or is there another reason?

    that's totally the reason, safe point is over 2 secs but you can adjust this value in the option panel.

    OK, I may miss something but is the number we see on the Combustion DOT by Blizzard the same number we put on the Threshold? I wonder if I see smaller numbers than the threshold because the threshold may not correspond to the tooltip of the DOT by the game. Because I certainly see smaller numbers than the sum of the DOTs shown in the middle of the addon window and the one on the Threshold.

    the threshold numbers are not the upcoming value of combustion, it's just the sum of the dots, useful to know if you wanna use it or not. Though this will have a big revamp soon.

  • How do i know how big the Ignite is on the target in 4.2 ?
    Until now there was a number in the Ignite bar that was somewhat reliable, but there is nothing anymore.

    Not sure if anyone else is getting this problem. It won't display LB DoTs on several targets. The bars just don't show up anymore. Tried a reset of variables and nothing. I don't get any UI errors either.

    first, do you have the damage, timer and bar for your target in the main frame ?
    then i saw sometimes Impact not spreading LB properly at all, can you double check if LB is correctly spread and try by manually applying LB on multiple targets ?

    thanks for the report anyway.

    the reason LB isn't spreading through impact is because there seems to be a bug where instead of spreading the Dot's, such as LB, pyroblast and ignite, it only works some of the time. Blizzard has yet to say anything about this and hasn't claimed if it was intentional or not. That is actually why i haven't gotten this add-on since i leveled my mage because i do not know how accurate it will be in helping my dps with this bug. Does it still work as intended or does impact not spreading the dots affect the information the addon gives us?

    CombustionHelper totally rely on the game to actually apply impacted LB to show it. If it doesn't apply because of a bug, then it won't show it. You can safely use CombustionHelper, it won't show false info.

    Ah, turning off Autohide seems to fix it, so far. :) So it might just be in that part of the code.

    Basically it doesn't track the size of current dots ticking on the target, so it can't indicate when one should combust, as the threshold is never reached. For the last week, I've been crossing my fingers and combusting when I have an ignite, LB, and pyroblast dot ticking, without any clue whether anything critted...might be combusting 10k, might be combusting 25k.
