    Nightfall Proc Announcer

    Looking for an old mod, that announce in /s or /ra, anything really, when the 5 sec buff from the Nightfall weapon procs. Spent about 20 min on google with no luck.

    Asking here first. Thanks.

    I use Necrosis which announces it shouting shadow trance at you. Not a bad lock addon.

    He means the weapon called Nightfall and not the warlock talent



    It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.

    And he want an output in /s or /ra oder anything else, but obvisiusly not just an output for yourself.

    When Parrot is updated or MSBT allows making custom triggers, you can set one up.

    Essentially all you do is Create New Trigger, find the setting for Self Buff Gains, then type in whatever the proc on the weapon is called. Choose your fonts and where it shows up, and hit ok. Then whenever you get the buff it'll initiate the trigger.

    Hope that helps

    the problem is that it puts a debuff on the mob, its not a self buff. idk that MSBT would do debuffs on opponents.

    Ah. Hm.

    Well, if you use DoTimer, you can set up triggers for debuffs on opponents, but it's a mod for your debuffs and cooldowns and all that. Usually most people have some form of scrolling/floating combat texts.

    I just remember that there was a really small, light mod that did this pre bc. I'm sure it would still work. I just cant find a host.
    Or if someone is intelligent enough to write it, because I am not.

    Why even use that weapon out of curiosity? Are you in a guild that does only 60 content?

    I had one of these crafted after the release of BC since I would be the OT for Gruul or Magtheridon, or another boss like Leothras, or any other fight where i would have to tank an add then have nothing to do afterwards. for anyone who is wondering, it still has a fairly high proc rate. I think it it procced something like 30 times on average for the duration that magtheridon was unleashed > dead.

    I searched forever for a mod that worked and would report it to the raid, but could only find one that worked pre-bc. I ended up just making a macro to click that self-reports when it procs. but if anyone knows how to make combat log addons and wants to help this guy out, im almost certain combat log reports it as "xxx gains Spell Vulnerability".

    I am almost certain that pre-existing dots already applied to that target will not increase for 5 seconds, and i am unaware if a dot applied during the 5 second duration will remain constant through its duration. So consider this: what is more dps? one spell from every caster in your raid (average is about 7-8 mages/locks/etc) while you spam hamstring, or your white swings+shieldslams+devastates+amazing prot dps? you'll have to get the calculator out for that one :P

    edit:
    if you think about it this way, if each caster's normal main spell is about 2500 damage, 15% of that would be 375 damage added, multiply that times 8 casters, round up to 3200 damage and if it procs 30 times in 5 minutes, thats about 100,000 more damage to the boss, and your shield slam hits for 700, adding white swings in between shield slams you get about 1400 damage every 6 seconds. 14,000 damage every minute, for 5 minutes, equals 70,000 damage.

    No offense, but I'm not interested in explaining the math behind it, I was just seeing if this community could recall the mod, or a mod that could do what I am asking.
