Sorry, but this mod just deserves it's own thread. It's just that
good and deserves more attention / use!
I'm sure all of you have heard of and use (I hope) KLHThreatMeter aka KTM
The problem with KTM though however is that it works on a global threat reading. This may be fine for single mob encounters, but what about fights like High King Maulgar? Even if you set the Master Target in KTM, the threat won't be reset after you move onto another target.
Omen uses a completely separate library/protocol and stores threat for each mob separately! So if you target one boss (say the priest in Gruul's Lair), kill it, and then move onto the next boss, it will show your threat (and the tank on that mob's threat) for just that 2nd mob rather than globally.
It's also compatible with KTM
. You will receive and send data to people using KTM. Now of course their threat received will be global rather than on a per mob basis, but you'll still have a decent idea of your threat, just as if you were using KTM. You can also keep using KTM
until you realize that once you use Omen, you'll never go back. :P
Some other things I love about it:
- It uses a LOT less memory than KTM
- I have it set to make a big warning and a sound when I get within 95% of the threat of the top person (i.e. the tank). No more threat pulling for me!
- I can drag the main tank's threat bar out and on it's own so that I can see my threat relative to just the tank (percentage, relative threat-per-second, and time until I overtake the tank)
- TONS of customization options
- + lots more!
Seriously, it's the best thing since sliced bread. I really can't stress enough how awesome of a mod it is. For those of you who already use it, make sure to pipe up and agree with me!Okay, so where can I download it at?
