    Bars and aggro, tanking name plates


    Lets see: I´ve been trying out Tidy plates fer a while now, and i want to know if this addon or any other lets me do the following:

    Add on some part of a window/option the name of other tanks in the raid so the addon IGNORES them, so the bars of mods that they have are a)likewise the ones that im holding aggro on (aka transparent,red,and inuntrusive) b) totally invisible or c) have a special color for their frame (in tidy whatever isnt held by me, is solid AND yellow framed, so lets say it puts those in green,purple,blue, w/e frames and mines in red)

    Do you see where I want to go?: Warlock pulls add #2136217 from the pack, i see: 38468236428 red bars and ONE yellow bar that goes away,solid and big. Then, i turn, taunt and goes.

    The current scenario is: I ve 3-5 red bars, and see 8-9 bars yellow, corresponding my fellow OTs down there.

    Ideas?.

    There currently exists a modification for Tidy Plates called Tidy Plates: Threat Plates that when used correctly will do at least some of what you ask.

    It contains the function "Ignore Marked Targets" which will ignore all threat on the target and flag it as tanked, regardless of who has aggro. The usefulness of this would be that you can mark your fellow tank's targets so that they must deal with them, and leave the unmarked for yourself to mop up.

    This does have a few setbacks however. This method requires you to actually have marked targets (which can be done in combat if need be, but is cumbersome), and you wont be able to watch your fellow tanks target. My guild currently uses this method to deal with trash in any raid which has lowered our time spent and we've suffered fewer random deaths.

    If you want something more concise than that I suggest you hit wowinterface and leave a comment in the Tidy Plates: Threat Plates Beta section with your suggestion.

    yeah, i´ll leave a comment there,cause there is too much of a process involved there. Maybe the author shall like it and implement it, or someone would make an apart theme for the feature itself. Anyone knows another one?. ;D
