Timer Count-UP: not possible to set audio msg for ending

Post by Rittmeister » Sun Jun 21, 2015 3:09 pm

when I select Timer count-up,
like when I don't know how long an event will take place.
I used it for FEAR, since I have several fears of various durations (3 ticks, 7 ticks,...)
The "End Timer" just is not selectable, so I can't insert a Ending message.
Would be nice to be able to set an audio warning for a count-up timer ending.
As a "work around" I am now using count-down timers for my fear spells, set them to the maximum length (7 ticks aka 42 seconds).
Also for rooting mobs... you never know when root breaks, and it would be great to set an AUDIO warning, not just the timer ending.

You're right that you can't set an "ending text" for count-up triggers, and as a workaround count-down definitely works. Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but you have it correct with your fear trigger setup.

I use the following trigger for root:

I agree that "timer ended" stuff for count-up triggers would be nifty, if it's possible. There are plenty of things where the duration can be variable (depending on focus effects, discs, and when the server tick lands); right now it's normal to set a trigger to the max possible time with an end-early phrase. The difference is needing to know what the max duration is. It would be nice to create a count-up trigger for, say, a DoT, and never have to worry about different foci and duration abilities.

Right now, I use count-up triggers for two things - the bard BP (has a variable duration), and event timers.

The Timer Ended tab is now enabled for all timer types in version 1.0.20.4 (beta).
