Weakaura for Explosive Affix
It works off enemy nameplates so if you don't have them enabled this won't work for you. Need to have Always Show Nameplates On too. (Have option in Actions>On Init to auto enable them. Use them only if you usually have them disabled because it assumes that you have and will disable them no matter what after exiting dungeon.)

Can enable/disable nameplate glow, assigning marks and showing icon in Actions>On Init > Custom Code
Change true to false if you want to disable them

If you are updating it please delete old weakaura
If you want to test to see how it will look Disable Instance Type condition (if you dont want to go to dungeon to test it) and change aura_env.test to true. WIll enable tracking of all nameplates.
For tidyplate users. If your nameplate glow is too large or small change tidyplatesHeight variable in Actions>Init code.
- Small tweak to deglow nameplates after orbs have died.
- Well that didn't work. Added options to Actions>Init to auto enable enemy nameplates/show all nameplates
- Enables Always Show Nameplates automatically when you enter dungeon.
- some more fixes for tidyplate glow (added possibility to change height of glow in case it isn't working correctly for some skins)
- added test mode
- nameplate error fix hopefully
- Improved glow for nameplates (tested on tidyplates/elvui/kui/default)

This Weak Aura includes custom functions.

@Exality TY! It's really stupid that the orb summoned by mobs not automatically enter combat with you, thus it's nameplate would not show...

@PowerofTwo Hey, I guess you imported version where I accidentally left test mode on. Go in Actions>On Init and make aura_env.test as false.

Either i'm not understanding this WA or something screwed up, it makes EVERY nameplate glow for me and counts every mob within 40(?) yds as a Fel Explosive orb.

@Ryaine Yea I messed up. Unfortunatelly there's no easy way for weakaura to reliably detect your default option. However I added switch in Actions>On Init to have them enable and disable automatically. Hope it works.

@F5in Hmm hoped I fixed that, I guess not. Thanks for reporting. I am correctly assuming that it happened after you did m+ right? Quick reload should fix that for now.

The always show name plates option doesn't seem to disable it self again on leaving the dungeon. Any way to do that?

Having an error where it's making random enemy names glow even when it's not enabled. http://puu.sh/vfP7v.png

@Ryaine It should, yes.

@Exality Will the always show name plates only activate if the dungeon is a mythic + ? or will it also activate on other difficulties?
Posted by Exality 14 days ago. Reply 2017-04-10 06:11
@Teto Hey, I added that :)
@Zen It's probably because you didn't have Always Show Nameplates enables. From v11 it automatically enables it when you enter m+ dungeon

Yeah seems to be working fine on bosses for me (using Elvui)
but doesn't work on adds till i manuals click the orbs

So I've been using this over the weekend and let me make one suggestion: it is SO MUCH more helpful to add an audible alert to this WA. On mine, I went into Actions and enabled Play Sound and set it to something simple like "Warning." Just my 2c in-case anyone might also find that helpful. Cheers.

Is it possible to have a WA to automatic toggle the always show nameplate option when entering a dungeon? Cause the fel explosives summoned by mobs will not show if this option is not toggled.....

@Clarx Hey, I updated aura. Hopefully gonna fix glow issues for tidyplates. If it's still too large or maybe too small now change tidyplatesHeight in Actions>Init code.

Great WA - Is there any way I can make the hights of the glow smaller (with TidyPlates) ? - Guess it has something to do because i scaled plates up/down with specific conditions, like "casting", "non elite" unit, etc. (if not possible the unit filter might work, have to check).

Works with plater https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/plater-nameplates) too. Thank you!

@stevan021 It's the same error as before right? Honestly I have no idea as that error just doesn't make sense and I am using KUI too. You have all of your addons updated? Maybe some other nameplate addon enabled too that causing problems

@Exality crap i got it completely mixed up. Meant to say I use these nameplates: https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/kuinameplates

Tried without them as well, didn't work for me. Keeps throwing insane amounts of errors
Posted by Exality 18 days ago. Reply 2017-04-06 10:46
@stevan021 SUF shouldn't be an issue. What nameplates are you using?
Posted by stevan021 18 days ago. Reply 2017-04-06 09:20
@Exality also tried with shadowed unit frames off, still wont work
Posted by stevan021 18 days ago. Reply 2017-04-06 08:31
@Exality update:


see errors? only shows up with this WA enabled
Posted by stevan021 18 days ago. Reply 2017-04-06 08:04
@Exality yes I do. I also use shadowed unit frames tho (https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/shadowed-unit-frames). Could that be an issue?

@Vegeta hey, I updated it and it should fix glow on elvui nameplates
@stevan021 do you have enemy nameplates turned on ?

This weakaura doesn't work at all for me
