CrutchAlerts  Updated less than 3 days ago!
Version: 0.7.0
by: Kyzeragon [More]
This addon is a crutch. Use the crutch proudly.

Unlike other alert addons, CrutchAlerts displays almost ALL incoming attacks that are cast on you. It also displays a curated list of casts on other players or the enemy itself that may affect you, as well as very large prominent alerts for especially dangerous or important casts.

However, this isn't meant to be a replacement for addons like Code's Combat Alerts or trial-specific addons which all display additional useful information. I think of CrutchAlerts as a gap-filler and also just an interesting tool to see the abilities cast on me out in the world, some of which have interesting names I would never have noticed otherwise.

I've been working on and using this addon for over half a year but only distributed it privately until now. As such, there are currently very few toggleable settings to turn features off, but I will work on adding more customizability in the future, though I've got a lot of other things to work on too.

Disclaimer: Certain features that rely on text detection will only work on English client.

General Alerts
- Shows timers for anything that someone (usually enemies) "BEGINs" casting on you, as well as effects that you "GAIN" from enemies. Basically, it contains most targeted attacks.
- Shows timers for certain "BEGIN" or "GAINED" attacks on other people or enemies. Typically these are AOEs that could be dangerous for you. This is whitelist only, you can adjust them in src/data.lua if you want to add/remove something.
- Shows an approximate countdown for when certain bosses will be damageable, such as Pinnacle Factotum and Nahviintaas.

Prominent Alerts
- Shows reaaaally big text and sometimes a ding sound for attacks where your action is requested, e.g. blocking the Assembly General Stomp, blocking Shield Charge, dodging Glacial Gash, etc. This is whitelist only, you can adjust them in src/prominent.lua if you want to add/remove something.

Cloudrest Features
- In execute with Siroria, shows which side the two flares should go to. This matches the sides designated by RaidNotifier.
- Shows an indicator for Olorime's spears mechanic. Shows a colored icon for 1 revealed spear, grayed out icon for synergized spear, and checkmark for orb dunked.

Sunspire Features
- On Lokkestiiz hardmode, shows icons on the ground for beam phase positions, which will only show before pulling and during flight phase. You need OdySupportIcons for this to work.
- On Yolnahkriin, shows icons above players who are safe to stack on (do not have Focused Fire debuff) when Focus Fire is cast - mostly a feature for the OT. You need OdySupportIcons for this to work.
- On Yolnahkriin, shows icons on the ground for where head and (right) wing stack will be when he lands. You need OdySupportIcons for this to work.

Kyne's Aegis Features
- On Falgravn, shows icons on the 4 dps stack points for the 2nd floor. You need OdySupportIcons for this to work.

Rockgrove Features
- On Oaxiltso, shows which side to cleanse on, using the same logic as Qcell's Rockgrove Helper

Maw of Lorkhaj Features
- On Twins, shows icons above players' heads corresponding with Lunar and Shadow Aspect. You need OdySupportIcons for this to work.

Miscellaneous Features
Overrides OdySupportIcon such that icons will not show for players in the opposite realm in Cloudrest or Sunspire portals.

Depends on: LibAddonMenu-2.0
Optional if you want trial-specific mechanic icons as listed above: OdySupportIcons


Known Issues / Planned Features
- Add more customizability to be able to turn things off
- Relequen and Galenwe interruptible prominent alerts don't go away after interrupted, this won't be fixed
- This is more of a personal addon, so things I add or change will be things that I find useful. I'll still take suggestions and of course bug reports, but just know that many things may not be very high priority
v0.7.0
- Added Lunar Aspect and Shadow Aspect above-head icons for Maw of Lorkhaj twins fight. I haven't had the chance to test it extensively, so it's possible it breaks (especially on vet with color conversions)
- Fixed some problems with Lokk HM icons already being enabled
- Fixed Noxious Sludge sides reactivating unintentionally


v0.6.1
- Fixed an error that occurred in Cloudrest if you didn't have OdySupportIcons


v0.6.0
- Added an override for OdySupportIcons such that icons will not show for players in the opposite realm in Cloudrest or Sunspire portals
- Added prominent alert for Sundering Gale in Sunspire portals
- Added markers on the ground for Lokkestiiz hardmode beam phase, which will only show before pulling and during flight phase. You need to install OdySupportIcons for this to work. Enabled by default
- Added markers on the ground for where head and (right) wing stack will be for Yolnahkriin when he lands. You need to install OdySupportIcons for this to work. Enabled by default
- Added indicator for which side to cleanse on for Oaxiltso, using same logic as Qcell's Rockgrove Helper
- Fixed Cloudrest spears display getting reset when you entered portal
- Fixed Roaring Flare not showing new target if it ended on old target
- API bump to Deadlands


v0.4.1
- Fixed a careless error that would show up in Cloudrest


v0.4.0
- Added visual indicator for spears in Cloudrest - shows a colored icon when a spear is revealed, grays out the icon when a spear is synergized, and shows a checkmark when an orb is dunked in a spear in portal. This indicator is enabled by default and can be repositioned using the Unlock option in settings
- Added a champion points committed sound effect when a spear is revealed, enabled by default
- Added some more regular alerts, including in Red Petal Bastion, Dread Cellar, and Asylum Sanctorium


v0.3.1
- API bump for Waking Flame
- Excluded Mist Form and its morphs from showing as (very long) alerts
- Added prominent alert for Creeper spawns in Cloudrest
- Added alert for Toxic Tide on other players in Kyne's Aegis to help avoid the cleave


v0.3.0 (First upload to ESOUI/Minion; below are changes since v0.2.2)
- API bump to Blackwood
- Fixed Crush from the senche-rahts in vSS not showing a second one if one was already casting
- Added prominent alert for Ambush (Dremora Kynlurker in vMA, not sure if there are any in other locations)
- Removed prominent alert for Emblazoned Stomp because it's no longer dodgeable
- Removed prominent alert for Meteor Call because Qcell's Rockgrove Helper already addresses it
- Added arrows above people who are safe to stack on (do not have Focused Fire debuff) when Yolnahkriin casts Focus Fire - mostly a feature for the OT. You need to install OdySupportIcons for this to work
- Fixed the Cinder Cleave timer from Havocrel Annihilator to better match when the damage actually occurs
- Added prominent alert for BOOGER (Coagulant) for 2nd floor of Falgravn when it spawns after the coagulant phase, only shows if you are marked as tank
- Added markers on the ground for Falgravn 2nd floor for the 4 dps stacks. You need to install OdySupportIcons for this to work
- Added a setting to turn off ALL prominent alerts. I'll add settings to toggle each one specifically later


v0.2.2
- This is the base version for those of you who already had my private version. Going forward, updates and changelogs will be posted here instead

Are you using English client? I use the center screen announcement to check for HM activation. I should probably mention in the addon description that English client is required for some things. Otherwise there's a setting under Crutch Alerts > Sunspire, but that should be enabled by default already.

Out of curiosity, what are you seeing while not in combat that makes you want to mute it?

No, it doesn't. I believe addons simply can't receive these combat event types in PvP, and for good reason, it'd be sort of like hacks.
