Seems like a new interface element introduced in 4.3. It appears at some Darkmoon Faire games and shares a lot with the alt power bar, but both can be shown at the same time.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far I've seen its purely visual and doesnt give any useful information.
It actually does. There is no other way to see your time remaining otherwise. The counter below that (which is, actually, the AltPowerBar) shows the current/maximum of the objective you need, not the time.
I was talking about the counter, not the AltPowerBar itself.
As for the cur/max of objective, you have that in the questlog already, even more readable.
The top bar is the buff timer I'm talking about, and is the only representation of the time remaining.
Yeah, that one should be covered by the AltPowerBar element. The bottom one (the counter) I don't know, as it seems like its just for show.
The bottom one -is- the AltPowerBar, surprisingly (and is also covered by the element). The buff timer, however, isn't. Hence the suggestion.
Was planning on having a look at it today, but yesterday was apparently the last day of darkmoon fair. I'm not really sure how I should support it either, might just make it its own element.
Darkmoon Faire is back again, so I went to investigate.
The bar is called BuffTimerN, and is part of the CounterBar elements of UnitPowerBarAlt.
UNIT_POWER_BAR_TIMER_UPDATE (arg1 = unit)
duration, expiration, barID, auraID = UnitPowerBarTimerInfo(unit, index)
I'm going to write a test element and see how that works out, probably naming it CounterBar.
Finished the element, although it might not be an optimal solution to all the power bars implemented in 4.3.
The AltPowerBar element by Blizzard handles a wide range of different stuff, which all are running of the same few events.
The elements I'm talking about is the following:
I will leave my finished element just in case.
Any chance of getting this implemented? :)
