Morning all,

As some of you may have noticed, I’m a huge fan of the addon called WeakAuras (WA), an addon that helps you track all kinds of cooldowns, buffs, casts and so on. In this thread I’d like to share some WeakAuras which I’ve put together for each boss and trash in Blackwing Lair, so as to save other people time or to help people new to the addon along the way. Enjoy!

Oh, and yes, WeakAuras is that addon which allows you to import custom visual and audio media into your game. ?

Disclaimer: Some of you may have a prejudice towards WA, because of its mandatory requirement on very specific Mythic mode bosses (like Archimonde in Hellfire Citadel), or because of its extensive set-up. As it stands now, however, WeakAuras is in no way mandatory for any of our raids. I am writing this thread voluntarily and it serves purely as an attempt to make the lives of others easier.

If you have any Aura requests, please post below or message me in Discord or in-game and I’ll try to set you up.

How to import a WeakAura
You can download the addon from the Twitch app.

To import a WeakAura, start with copying the string in the listed PasteBin. Then, open the WeakAura window in-game by typing “/wa”. Now select ‘New Aura’ in the top left corner of the window and select ‘import’ in the menu in the middle of the WeakAura window. After a few seconds, a new window should appear, listing the name and contents of the Aura. Simply press the red ‘import’ button at the bottom of this window and you’re all set.

To manipulate or move an Aura on your screen, start by selecting the Aura you wish to modify in the WA window. A box will have appeared around the Aura on your in-game screen. You can now drag the aura around your screen or change its size by dragging the edges of the box around the aura.

This WA tracks the time remaining on the debuff you gain once you start controlling the mind control orb on https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=12435/razorgore-the-untamed (https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=23958/mind-exhaustion).

This WA makes a sound and shows you an icon once you’ve gained https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=18173/burning-adrenaline.

This WA will give a notification by text on who just gained https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=18173/burning-adrenaline. Useful for raid leaders.

This WA will track:
On top of that, this WeakAura will alert you by sound when you've reached five stacks. Thanks to this Aura, you can focus on other things such as the environment and your rotation without having to stare at your debuffs constantly. The sound will alert you when you need to move.

This WA tracks the elemental resistances on Wyrmguards and https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=14020/chromaggus, notifying you by text to which element the target is currently vulnerable

Nefarian
https://pastebin.com/Fa0hPJDG
This WA tracks the amount of https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=14302/chromatic-drakonid that have been killed. This is useful, since Nefarian's phase 2 does not start on a timer, but rather when 40 https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=14302/chromatic-drakonid have been slain.

Wait, can you make a "stack" WA so that I don't have to say it anymore? :p

I have used it in the past, I had a nice one too remind me Inner Focus was up, have an idea for another that I just don't have a clue if even is feasible, but we can talk about that in the near future.

Almost anything is feasible with WeakAuras now! Feel free to shoot me message on Discord a.s.a.p. so I can start looking into it : )

I've now developped a https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=23653/nightfall WeakAura.
For the string, follow the link below:
https://pastebin.com/dNKV5WAg

It includes:
-an icon with a glow
-a progress bar
-a textual timer
-a sound effect to make you aware

I've tried to make this one track the debuff even when you're not targetting the boss, but as you can imagine this one is a bit more difficult to test on boars in Dun Morogh, so please let me know how this one is working for you.

Cheers

Thanks, Repike! I was using one that Vexo sent me and the icons were way too big. Will test yours now :D

As per @Neobrijani request, here's a WeakAura to track if the target is missing Faerie Fire or Faerie Fire (Feral). I've set it so it only loads whenever you are in a raid group and have an attackable object as your target.
https://pastebin.com/ZUHhy57T

If there are other classes who would like a similar aura for Demoralizing Shout, a curse or something else, then...
-under trigger, replace the spell name with the spell name you wish to track
-under load -> Class, choose your class from the drop-down menu.

Or send me a personal message on Discord.

If you would like this one to track missing debuffs on something you don't have targetted (e.g. an icon above nameplates), send me a personal message on Discord.
