WeakAuras Strings – Protection Paladins

A good UI is a key to mastering any class.  I’ve talked about my UI once before, so I’m not going to go into great detail about how I organize things in this post.  However, about 3 or 4 months ago I switched from PowerAuras to WeakAuras.  It took some getting used to, and was actually a little more complicated to set up, but I have to admit that the final result is quite a bit nicer.

In case anyone else is considering making the switch in anticipation of MoP, I figured I’d offer up the WA setup I use on Theck to help with my rotation, cooldowns, etc.  All you should need to do to get this setup is to install WeakAuras and import the configuration string given below:

Now, what does this do? Well, it does this:

This is an arrangement of my abilities in rough priority order, from left to right.  The first (and biggest) icon is for Holy Power abilities.  It’ll show HotR if I’m below 3 HP, and SotR or Inquisition if I’m at 3 HP depending on the state of Sacred Duty and Inquisition buffs.  I demonstrate that in the video at around 0:12 by letting SD drop off, at which point it swaps from SotR to Inq.  Individual icons for Inq and Sacred Duty buffs are shown below the HotR box.

From left to right after HotR are smaller icons for J, AS, Cons, and HW.  They light up when off cooldown, and show a spiral cooldown timer when they’re not available.  In addition, Cons is hidden when I’m below a certain mana threshold.

Below those are indicators for my major cooldowns: Holy Shield, Divine Protection, Ardent Defender, and Guardian of Ancient Kings.  Again, these show the icon when available and a cooldown spiral when they aren’t available.

There’s also small indicators to the left of HotR that shows whether Avenging Wrath and WoG are available.  I don’t have a spiral timer for AW, since I don’t generally look at that as much – I often save it for specific parts of fights, and when it isn’t being saved it generally won’t make much difference if it takes me a few seconds to notice it’s up.

And the best part: It will also play a cash register sound when I reach 3 Holy Power.  Cha-ching!

I use a few of those indicators for Ret as well, but it’s not a complete set because I use clcret to handle the Ret rotation.  I also have setups for most of my alts that follow the same pattern – big icon for the most important ability, smaller icons in order of priority to the right of it.  So far I think I have setups for my Warrior (Prot and Fury), Hunter (Marks, Survival, and an out-of-date BM version), Rogue (Combat and Subtlety), Mage (Fire, I think – maybe Arcane too?), and Druid (Feral tank, Moonkin).  I also have settings for my Warlock, but they’re just cooldown indicators as I mostly play Affliction and use NeedToKnow for most of my DoT tracking.

If someone would find these useful, I don’t mind posting up the configurations for any of those characters as well, though they’re not all as finely tuned as the ones for Theck.  And most of them will probably have to change significantly for MoP anyway.  But at the very least, they might be a good starting configuration for a new alt.

    Your post makes me happy. I love Weak Auras and would love to see more people posting WA strings!

  2. tydas says:

    I’d love to get your WA string for the warrior. I can’t seem to find anything worth while to use for him although on my paladin I’m pretty squared away.

    • Theck says:

      I’ll try and get a post up with some of my other WA strings, including the warrior. Probably not until the weekend, though.

    I do a similar setup but use CLCInfo instead. It provides a pre-configured setup for Prot Paladin, but I’ve been able to program for Blood DK, Bear/Cat, and Aff/Demo lock.
