Nameplates - Healer Mode
Hi, I used another addon as "nameplates" a while ago, before I switched to ElvUi completely. I have a small problem with the ElvUi nameplates, maybe this feature exists already and I just didn't find it.
I have nameplates like this: https://i.imgur.com/FFVpnzU.jpg
At the moment enemies and friends look the same (Horde / Alliance). The color of the class. So when I'm in battleground as a DD I only have the nameplates of the enemies enabled. Normal monsters are just "red" and real players have the class color. So far so good.
When I'm a healer, I only have the nameplates of my friends enabled, class color. So that I know I heal a warrior, a rogue, a paladin friend. But when I only have the friends nameplates enabled, I have no REAL overview how MANY enemies are around me. So I enable the nameplates of enemies TOO! The problem is then, they have "class color" aswell... So I go to nameplates menu, and change the ENEMY color to "just red". So my friends are class colored, enemies are just red.
That's why my feature request: [ x ] Healing mode option When you enable this you have the following mode enabled.
- When Healer: Friend have class colors | enemies are just red
- When NO healer: Enemies have class colors | friend are just green
With that option, you could have enabled both. Enemies and friends at the same time. And you don't have to change the settings EVERY TIME you play a healer / dd.
I hope my explanation makes sense to you. :) On my old nameplates it was this way, I just don't know the name anymore of the addon. Since I use elvui since a long while now. And don't want to replace nameplates :)
As a damage dealer it would look like this.
And as a healer just in the opposit, friends have class color and enemies are just normal (red, yellow whatever)!
