Absorb Bar


Absorb Bar

This addon provide a visual display on precisely how much total abortion a play has active

A small bar will appear in the center of your screen with a zero inside the middle, you can drag the bar around by left clicking it. There is a configuration panel under the interface opinions.

Shields that are supported are:

Priest - Power Word: Shield, Divine Aegis, Spirit Shell
Mage - Ice Barrier, Mana Shield, Mage wards
Warrior - Shield Barrier
Paladin - Sacred Shield

Current Limitations
as of 4.2
This add on only tracks your shield on your self. However it could be modified to view shields on someone else. Only Power Word: Shield, Divine Aegis, and Sacrifice would be viewable because the buff now shows the amount of the shield, where as the mage shields do not.

I have not tested this in the Arena yet so I do not know how it will handle the no mana starting area or when the gates open and buffs are removed.

Things to know
When two shield are up they are added together until one is removed and then it will reset the bar to show when it left of the remaining buff.

Features to be added in the next release
- ability to select only the shields you want to track
- lock and unlock
- auto hide options
=== new shields to add ===

    Please add more options, eg exact spell, bar customization, triggers for X absorb left in shields, etc, also when repositioning it does not anchor to mouse correctly
