Rift Enforcer Addon


Enforcer is a PvP-oriented buff utility addon. It may have PvE applications, but the addon is designed for PvP.

A design goal of Enforcer is to be as light as possible and has a no-news-is-good-news approach to UX. That is it only shows you important information and doesn't clutter your UI.

Feature: Target Status

Enforcer gives status indicators for your target on key points of information. Enforcer currently provides icons showing the following: - Whether the target is incoming heal debuffed & by what amount. - Whether the target is outgoing heal debuffed & by what amount. - How many detectable healing effects the target has.

The intent of this feature is to give a quick summary of important information relating to the kill vulnerability of the target by understanding if the target is heal debuffed and how much healing the target is taking. The dark red indicator is the incoming heal debuff, which is the vast majority of heal debuffs in the game. The purple is outgoing heal debuff, which is only Anathema now.

The healing effects won't catch instant heals or single-target long-casts, but it will catch healing effects that are generated as a result of such casts, like the absorb shields, lasting invocation, and greater essence procs. The goal is to eyeball it to know how healed a target is. Low # of effects means little or no healing, while a high # effects indicates strong healing on the target. Its meant to be a rough estimate so you can make appropriate decisions, not give you an accurate readout of the amount of healing.

Feature: Buff Watch

Currently Enforcer allows you to maintain a list of buffs to watch. When those buffs are not up, the buff icon appears in a configurable location to be a clear indicator to you that an important buff is not up.

The intended usage of this feature is for when you are engaged in PvP and one of your critical buffs gets purged. It would then throw up an indicator that a buff you may be relying on isn't up so you know to recast it, or just so you know it isn't up.

Examples: Lifegiving Veil, Salvation, Warlock Armor, etc.

It can also just be used as a buff reminder, which is useful if raiding and you have a lot of buffs on your bar. This makes it easier for you to know that you need to rebuff yourself.
