World of Warcraft PvP addon

Warns a player when their current target has buffs or debuffs that eliminate (or significantly mitigate) incoming damage. [The default buff/debuff list is most relevant to casters - but the list can be easily modified to suit melee players]. Displays the name and icon of the buff/debuff, as well as a timer displaying a countdown of time remaining until the effect expires. Buffs and debuffs can be added and removed with the appropriate slash commands.

Default Buffs/Debuffs

  • Anti-Magic Shell
  • Aspect of the Turtle
  • Blessing of Spellwarding
  • Cloak of Shadows
  • Cyclone
  • Deterrence
  • Diffuse Magic
  • Dispersion
  • Divine Shield
  • Guardian of the Forgotten Queen
  • Ice Block
  • Imprison
  • Nether Ward
  • Netherwalk
  • Shield of Vengeance
  • Smoke Bomb
  • Spell Reflection
  • Temporal Shield
  • Touch of Karma

Prior to version 1.3.7 any auras added to the default list (e.g. Dispersion in v1.1.3) would not be enabled for players updating to (or beyond) that DontCast version. This was changed in v1.3.7 (e.g. all players will now have Aspect of the Turtle enabled by default) but this required changing how auras are removed/disabled. As a result any players that prior to v1.3.7 disabled an aura (via /dontcast remove) that is on the default list will have that aura re-enabled. Auras disabled in v1.3.7 (or higher) will not be affected by future changes to the default list.
