    Weakaura Display Stats

    I'm trying to create a weakaura string that will display my crit, haste and mastery, either rating or %.

    I tried looking it up and found a few entries from google. Not being a coder, I'm afraid my attempts to cut, paste and modify the functions didn't work.

    I found a few addons that would do this, but they either were out of date, required another addon to display, or I just didn't like them.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Make a text string in Weak Auras, put in %c for custom and add the following to the custom function (don't touch trigger at all)
    Code:
    function() 
        return ("Mastery Rating: ".. GetCombatRating(26))
    end
    You get the idea!

    ^ if he doesn't edit the trigger it'll update every frame - that's not ideal because it's a lot of extra processing for no good reason.
    Changing it to fire on events like COMBAT_RATING_UPDATE would reduce the updates noticeably (hundred+ times less cpu intensive).

    Good point, completely forgot about the update rate.

    Thanks! I'll give this a try and appreciate the links. I'll read up on it.

    I've spent sometime doing some weakaura tweaking to display stats, only haste worked for me till now. so I figured out my formulas for crit and dodge are wrong so i've been searching to find the MoP formulas for each spec but i cant find anything, any help please?

    I haven't tried these but it seems pretty straightforward from the API...

    GetDodgeChance()
    GetCritChance()
    GetSpellCritChance(schoolID)

    You shouldnt bother on calculating anything. If the info you seek is shown in character pane (what do you seek? % values), then most probably the WOW API already has a function that returns it. Get into wowprogramming.com or wow api on wowwiki and give it a search.

    Code:
    function ()
        local now             = GetTime();
        WA_STATS_LAST_UP = WA_STATS_LAST_UP or now - 1;
        if now >= WA_STATS_LAST_UP + 0.1 then
            WA_STATS_LAST_UP = now;
            
            local int              = select(1, UnitStat("player", 4));    
            local mas              = GetMasteryEffect();                         
            local has              = UnitSpellHaste("player");                     
            local crit              = GetSpellCritChance(6);                
            local dmg              = GetSpellBonusDamage(6);                
            
            WA_STATS_RETURN = string.format([[

    You can also check out TinyCasterStats

    If you don't care for that display or it's options you should be able to rip out any code you need in to a WeakAura as well.

    Best of luck to you in your endeavor!

    The ''cri or 0,'' should be ''crit or 0,'' for this to work.
    or the ''local crit'' should be ''local cri''.

    I have another question.
    Is it possible to have a progress bar growing with the increase of spell power gain, and decrease again when your procs are fading.?
