Woz, I have some strings I would want coded, but I am at a lack of know-how on how to do it myself. Do you currently take somewhat complex (and quite possibly for some, unnecessary) requests in this thread?
Malkorok's barrier + amount absorb.
Not specific to warlork but it may help.
You're right, should've done that. :-) At the top of my head, there are two strings I want.
The first one is a string that measures the distance from me to my target, starting from 0 all the way up to 50+ in 5 yard increments, ie. 0-5, 5-10, 10-15 and so on. I want it displayed as only "X-Xyd". I remember I saw this in an addon, but can't remember which one, so I know there is support for it in some snippets of code.
The second string is an improvement on the basic Soul Swap string linked on the previous page. In addition to showing the icon with a cooldown overlay that displays the 3 seconds, I want an estimate of the duration left on the dots I just inhaled displayed as a percentage of the combined duration of the three dots. During huge multidot fights I some times won't get to notice how long the duration is left until they've fallen off, and this lets me do something about it. If possible, also colorcoded red whenever one is within 5 seconds of falling off, but no huge must.
Hmm those certainly aren't easy
I thought the first one was impossible, but maybe if you saw it somewhere there's a way. As far as I know there is no way to obtain the distance to your target, you can only check if it's in range of a spell or not. Could be wrong ofc.
Second one seems possible, but would take a lot of time. I might try it later, but I don't have any time today and I'm sure there's people who are better at coding that can do it 10 times faster than me ^_^
Good luck anyway.
Like Strmstrike said I don't think it's possible to indicate distance between mob and you through WA but that addon does what you're looking for.
Hey Woz, i checked out all the destruction ember WA's.. and i was wondering if you had an idea of what the embers look like on Xperls frame units? im basically looking for a WA thats exactly the same as those but i can move around, i tried the others that are on main post but wasnt what i was looking for, im just looking for ones that look/act exactly the same as the xperl ones, actual embers that fill up... ive seen loads on quite a few lock vids, but can never find out what addon/WA it may be.. any help would be so appreciative !!
EDIT: Nvm, am currently using Icehuds embers, yet hate the soulshards when i change spec, so... will be using this for time being, but will keep an eye out haha

Thanks for the update; and this thread needs a sticky for sure.
I have a simple WA for Jade Spirit proc that no longer works since 5.4. Has anyone else seen this? I'm not on my computer so I can't post the WA string but thought to ask if it is a common problem.
A living Warlock = a dead everyone else
My working Jade Spirit aura (WA1, haven't switched over to WA2 yet - have heard differing opinions on it actually working or not --- also not sure if you can cross import WA1 to WA2):
And for the AD aura - I'm really not sure why it wouldn't work for you (or spews errors) but works absolutely fine for me. Maybe it's got something to do with how WA functions with ElvUI, haven't been able to duplicate it past the first day of patch.
This is most likely one of the best threads here, and still not sticky :|
I am a really big fan of your Weak Auras Section in the WL-Section.
With some luck I have noticed this post: mmo-champion.com/threads/1258229-How-to-track-Skull-Banners-*Important-for-Destro
I also tried your posted Weak Auras String which was created from Zumzum but I need you help:
a) I can´t run this string like Zumzum in the posted vid. The string on the vid is always visible with a darker color and turns colored once the Banner was applied. By me it always starts to be visible when I am in combat. I have also tested the Load-Section of the string but I can´t figure it out.
b) I have problems with the icons in the string. 3 of them indicates the CD-Time of every Name which is tipped in. So far so good but every time one of the players put a Banner on the ground the Uptime-String is not put over the name of the player and is somewhere else on the screen. I can put it only over one of the 3 icons but then I see 2 icons which doesn´t fit.
Could you please help me and give me instructions how to fix it that it is like on the vid ?
Not sure 100% how in the video there it's being displayed separately for each Warrior, the old string I posted in that thread I posted is a bit different than what you're looking for if you want to duplicate it exactly how he has it. I'm not 100% positive on how to make the aura indicating that their Skull Banner is available nor how to modify the LUA in the aura that indicates the buff being active. If he's still using that same aura I would suggest PMing him directly for the full string he was/is using there.
The bad thing is that I can´t send PMs because I am new here ^^
I think I need to contact him directly in wow.
I am searching for a Bar which indicates the left time of Molten Core Proccs and which notice the remaining Molten Core Stacks ?
