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...
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).
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.
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.
