    Need some expert help with a weakaura.

    The purple bar will track Malice debuff (says Power Word: Shield for testing purposes) easy enough to make...

    But I want the red bar to start a custom timer from the very second the Malice Debuff is applied to me.
    I know that you can make a custom timer easily, like in the screenshot, but the problem is I need the timer to restart every time it runs out for aslong as Malice is up.

    The reason is I want to track the ticking rate of the debuff (It ticks every 2 sec). I know you can just look at raid frames, but half my raid have super small raid frames, hidden behind their combat text etc, so this would help a lot for people who havent gotten Malice before.

    BASICALLY: I want a way to trigger the custom timer on time left on a debuff. Nothing works, and I've tried everything I can think of. It seems I need something that is always true, and it has to be under event, then I ahve to make a second trigger when Malice has 12s left. Problem is, I cant find something that is always true under Event...

    Try triggering the tick bar everytime you get damage from malice AND a second trigger to check malice is up so it does not show another after the last tick

    Event Combat log Spell Damage Spell name > Malice

    Im not sure if this will trigger if the tick is fully absorbed, though. I cannot test it now, just ask a buddy to test it with a random dot on a duel

    Yeah just noticed, the bolts firing should be somehow shown on the combatlog, this will be your trigger, you'll need to find it, maybe a spell > cast success event or smth.

    There are no public hc garrosh fights on WoL so could not check it

    OR, thinking outside of the box, and using a dirty trick, just place a shrinking texture with a 2 second animation triggered by malice debuf :P

    Could work, if I can track other ppl's combat log. Doubt spell > cast success will work at all.

    Wont work, cus the Malice debuff only activates once, and lasts for 14 sec, I need the custom timer to be activated 7 times during the 14s window and last for 2s.

    Yeah yeah, I didnt know how it worked when I first answered but I know now, That texture will fake a 2 second custom timer for as long as the debuff is present, it will "trigger" 7 times during malice. It will work until you come to the elegant solution with a properly coded trigger.

    Run a /combatlog for one attempt and put it on pastebin, it'll be a lot easier to see how the mechanic works then. It is possible to make a custom timer activate 7 times during the 14 seconds but then again it might go out of sync if it's not exactly 2 seconds on the dot (which is why we need to see if there's something that fires when Malice ticks so we can re-sync to timer if need be).

    You can also run http://www.wowace.com/addons/transcriptor/ and type /transcript when you enter P4 area, it might be that it is linked to something else that is not recorded under the CLEU (like an emote, I doubt it though).

    edit:

    Malice is a debuff which persists for 14 seconds and you fire Malicious Blast so yeah this shouldn't be a problem since it is tracked in the combat log.

    Here ya go: http://pastebin.com/jPJ4pkmR

    I'm not sure if fully understand the way you explained it but I tried my best. This custom timer will trigger when malice ticks. So it will tick, countdown 2 sec, tick, countdown etc...
    Explain it more detailed if this doesn't work for you.
