About WeakAuras 2

WeakAuras 2

WeakAuras is a powerful and flexible framework that allows you to display highly customizable graphics on your screen to indicate buffs, debuffs, and a whole host of similar types of information. It was originally meant to be a lightweight replacement for Power Auras, but it now incorporates many features that Power Auras does not, while still remaining more efficient and easy to use.

Features include:

  • An intuitive and powerful configuration interface
  • Custom textures including all textures from Power Auras and the new Cataclysm spell alerts
  • Progress bars and textures that show the exact duration of auras
  • Displays based on auras, health, power (mana, rage, soul shards, holy power, etc.), cooldowns, combat events, runes, totems, items, and many other triggers
  • Preset and user-defined animations
  • Custom side-effects such as chat announcements or sounds
  • Grouping, which allows multiple displays to be positioned and configured at the same time
  • CPU optimizations such as conditional loading/unloading of displays, modularity, and prevention of full aura scanning
  • Powerful customization options, such as animation paths, on-show/on-hide code, and custom triggers, for Lua-savvy users

To open the options window, type "/wa" or "/weakauras"

    - Warrior: Add Arms's Charge and Prot's Shield Block
    - Fix backgrounds of dynamic groups
    The dynamic group first sets all auras to their
    position and then in DoResize finds the max/min xy coordinates
    by iterating over all auras. Somehow, the position in DoResize was
    wrong. Adding debug output directly after setting the position fixed
    it, as does adding a call to GetBottom() directly after SetPoint.
    This looks like a bug in WoW to me.
    - Add load conditions to DK talents
    Somehow missed that, probably because I don't play DKs.
    - Add Legendary Item Proc "Kael'thas's Ultimate Ability"
    - Fix wrong load condition in templates for Ancestral Guidance
    - Add UNIT_FACTION event to Unit Characteristics
    To fix not updating WA on changes to UnitCanAttack().
    According to https://github.com/kesava-wow/kuinameplates2/issues/1,
    UNIT_FACTION fires for most cases and is the best event to use.
    Even though this might not fix it in all cases.
