An addon for Sw:Death?

Priest
An options would be greatly appreciated.
What are you looking for exactly? Something to tell you when a target is at 25%?

I like Powerauras (http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/powerauras-classic) for that, although there are quite a few other addons out there.
MikScrollingBattleText (MSBT) will do this for you too.
get Powerauras and import this string. (just copy/paste it into the box that comes up when you hit Import.)

Version:4.23; b:0.1255; g:0; target:true; icon:inv_alchemy_elixir_05; bufftype:8; texture:10; alpha:0.5; threshold:24; y:170; finish:0
I got a VERY light addon called TargetHealthPercent. All it does is literally put a movable box wherever you want and will display the percentage that the target is at. It also has a background color that can change when they get lower in health. It helped me tons with knowing when to use SW:D.

I use weakauras. I have a big red thingy come across the uppper middle of my screen.....usually right above my char. I have it come out real bright too, so I don't miss it.

The nice thing about weakauras is that you can put a sound with the visual, so there is a nice, loud shotgun blast that goes off in my ears when target is below 25% and SW:D is off cd.

have you used powerauras? if so, how does it compare to weakauras and what are the differences?
The only reason I don't like DBM or most unit frames' percentage indicator is that it shows flat% (eg. 10%, 25%) rounded up rather than exact %, meaning 24.9 and 24.2 both round up to 25. And I hate when a mob hits 25% on the dot and I hit SW:D thinking it'll be in execute range but it's really not. -.-

Mods like Power Auras, Weak Auras, and combat text all go by exact percentage. No more wasting the CD on nothing.

DAMN IT. well... i suppose i need to make a powa for corrupting parasite anyway because out of the 3 times i've gotten it i've managed to derp it up twice... except there was a week between each of the derps over a total of probably 14 pulls.

e: or i could use msbt
I use MSBT for like 3 things, execute range being one of them. I get a little pop-up that says 'DEATH' in scary red letters and it's perfect.

Corrupting Parasites are bastards. Usually DBM plays a sound when it's on you but on the first platform, the Mutated Corruption spawns at the same time and DBM (for me) plays a sound for that instead. So I hear the "look-out!" noise but figure it's just the Corruption, nbd, and I don't notice the debuff... yeeeeah.

I love how with 20% nerf you can just ignore every parasite though. Suckers. Not even good.
yeah, i just... now i'm VERY careful with the timer and look at my health frame directly to see if i've gotten the debuff. NO CHANCES TAKEN LOL.
Yeah I just have a Power Aura that comes up at <=25% health and if SW:D isn't on CD.

afaik Power and Weak auras are essentially the same things.
