OmniCC Reference Guide - Vanilla World of Warcraft Addon

OmniCC is an addon for Vanilla World of Warcraft that displays a numeric countdown over your action bar abilities showing their remaining cooldown. This makes it much easier to plan your attacks when you know exactly when a skill is going to be ready at a glance.

Downloads

Installing

How to Use

OmniCC Off OmniCC Long OmniCC Medium OmniCC Short

The built-in cooldown animation is fairly hard to see and doesn't give you a very accurate idea of the remaining time, especially on longer cooldown abilities. OmniCC removes any doubt by placing a numeric countdown over the skill icon.

The look of the countdown is very configurable. You can change the font and the size. You can change the color and the size for each of the four remaining cooldown durations (more than an hour, less than an hour, less than a minute, and less than 5 seconds). If you have several abilities on cooldown, this makes it immediately obvious which ones are going to be ready soon.

For abilities that have very short cooldowns, there is a minimum cooldown setting so there is no clutter on abilities that don't need it. The flash that happens when an ability comes off cooldown can be made even more obvious if you want a really strong visual cue when abilities become available.
