Why are Priest Fear's not covered in NECB or any other cooldown watching addon?
I've tried many different addons and I cannot figure out why none of them record the priest's fear cooldown and how long is left.. If anyone could point me in the direction of a mod which does, or how to enable it on NECB, I would be greatful.
Well having a rough idea without having to countdown 30/27/23 seconds in my head after every fear is a lot better than not knowing at all.
You can easily tell if they have the extra 4 seconds off of fear by looking at their tree, so having a cooldown counter and minusing 7 seconds is real easy.
It's because the relevant information about casting this spell (and same applies to others like Counterspell) is not available to the WoW client. It has nothing to do with how the cooldown duration is affected by talents and gear bonuses, it is just impossible to track properly. However, you can check out Afflicted which does the job in as good a way as it is possible at the moment. Hopefully in 2.4 this will be fixed by Blizzard.
Thanks for the reply.. Don't suppose you know of a mod that will allow me to start a custom bar timer? Like if I press a button, it'll countdown 27 seconds on the bar?
Quartz can do that, though I never used the feature myself so I don't know the exact syntax. There's bound to be some others that I don't know of, Quartz might be overkill if all you need is a custom timer bar.
With the upcoming ability to inspect enemy combatants, the duration of Psychic Scream's cooldown may actually be available to the client. Here's to hoping.
This isn't an upcoming ability, it's been a bug thats been taken advantage of and in 2.4 they fixed it. You will only be able to inspect unflagged and non-hostile players, meaning it's not really accurate to get cool down modifying talents unless you can inspect them ahead of time.
The reason mods don't track Physic Scream is because it's an instant cast AE meaning the only way we can pick it up is by seeing "So and so is afflicted by Physic Scream" making it impossible to track if at least one person doesn't get hit by it, and we can't figure out who actually used the ability either if theirs multiple Priests.
If you're savvy with lua you could just write a small custom timer using CandyBar libs that starts whenever an event contains "Physic Scream". That should cover resists even.
If it was that simple it would have been already done. The problem is that there is no such event, which is what Shadowed said just above. There's no indication of the cast, only of the debuff applied, and if the debuff doesn't get applied (e.g. nobody in range), then you have no way to know the spell has been cast.
