I'm having trouble finding a good way to watch my Sacred Shield buff on my tank. Currently using TellMeWhen but if a pally healer puts their own shield on me it starts watching the timer for theirs instead. Has anyone come up with a good way via addons to watch it and would like to share?
It's pretty easy to watch with WeakAuras. When you create and aura in the addon theres an optin for "Own Only" that will only track your own Sacred Shield. It's very quick to setup.
A few people have already posted their WA's for Paladins on the forums already. I also know Theck posted his auras over at the Sacred Duty blog. Might want to check those out if you want some help setting up WA.
Any kind of buff tracking addon will track it for you (I use NeedToKnow). There are two auras called "Sacred Shield" (both the 30-second buff you cast directly and the 6-second buff it subsequently applies), so you'll have to track it by Spell ID. The ID for the 30-second buff is 20925.
I'm at work right now, so I can't have a look and tell you exactly, but I'm pretty sure there's a setting when you right click the bar in NeedToKnow for it to only show your own personal casts. If that doesn't work, then Sacred Shield might behave in a way that NeedToKnow doesn't play well with.
SotR isn't no, but SS is. Meaning you will waste a lot of GCD's to SS while it wasn't needed because SS was already up. Macroing this to SotR is really a stupid thing to do.
You'll also oom from it. Just get the addon "Beacon of light and sacred shield tracker", it gives you a neat re-sizable bar that tracks the uptime of SS. I'm just looking for a blood shield tracker-type addon (or perhaps power auras) to track how much it absorbs.
