oUF_DruidHots is an oUF extension that adds a set of colored box "indicators" to the top of enabled frames to show you all of your current Druid heal-over-time spells.
As a healer I missed the indicators I used to use in Grid. Since I now use a custom oUF layout instead of Grid or Pitbull, I decided to hack something together. What started out as a quick little lifebloom timer quickly blossomed into a full blown Druid HOT timer.
This diagram shows how it looks and what they each mean:
It attaches the indicators to the top left of the Health bar.
There are a few things I still want to implement:
- Some kind of indication when the Hot is about to expire. I’m going to play with blinking, fades, borders, etc. to see what works best.
- Better configuration for layout authors. Right now everything (indicator size, color, offset, spacing, ordering) are all hard-coded. I’ll put the config in a table an oUF layout author can embed in his layout code.
As with all oUF extensions, it requires that you have oUF (the base frame framework) and an oUF layout (the definition of how you want your player/party/raid frames to look) installed.
