This is just a super quick one about an addon I’ve fallen in love with. Grid. Well, Grid + GridStatusLifebloom. It gives me a 0.1s-resolution countdown on any lifeblooms I have running, as well as a colour indicator for how many stacks I have. Fantastic for keeping track.
Sadly, with the new patch, it broke. It stopped updating the time remaining, and just stayed at 7s. VERY frustrating.
Happily, I found this post, in which Calico0 gives a very satisfactory fix. Find your GridStatusLifebloom addon folder, make a backup of GridStatusLifebloom.LUA, and then open the original up in Wordpad (Notepad doesn’t like the file much I found).
Search through the file for a block of code starting with “function GridStatusLifebloom:CountHOTs(unitid)”, and replace the whole block (should only be a few lines) with:
function GridStatusLifebloom:CountHOTs(unitid) local maxbuffs = 40 local currentTime = GetTime() if unitid then for i = 1, maxbuffs do local buffName, rank, texture, applications, debuffType, duration, expiryTime, isMine = UnitBuff(unitid,i) if buffName and expiryTime then local timeLeft = expiryTime-currentTime if self:isLifebloom(buffName) then return applications, timeLeft end end end end return 0,0 end
Save this, and then jump back into WoW, and your Lifebloom Blues should be over.
