0) If you have a previous version of CombatAnalysis installed, delete the old CombatAnalysis folder first or move it out of your Plugins Directory.
1) Download the .zip file.
2) Extract the CombatAnalysis folder from inside the .zip file into your LOTRO "Plugins" directory: "(My) Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins" (you may need to create this folder if it doesn't already exist, which has to be called Plugins with a capital "P"). Ensure you have the folder called CombatAnalysis (not CombatAnalysisZip) directly inside the Plugins folder.
3) Open up the Lord of the Rings client (if not already running).
4) Type /plugins refresh, followed by /plugins load CombatAnalysis, or use the in-game Plugin Manager.
5) If you have not modified the buffs, please go to the about tab in the plugin manager and reload the traits to have Beoring buffs appear
Notes on the evolution of Turbine's LoTRO LUA
Combat Analysis was developed at a time when LoTRO allowed your entire fellowships' combat statistics be shared with each member. This is not the case now, but in hopes that access to this information will be restored I am leaving the multiple character features in the code. So please be patient with the "All Character" and named Character selections as you traverse the data to be displayed selection items.
First and foremost there is a little icon at the bootom of the Stats Overview window that lives a triple life and is your best CA friend. It allows you to control what you see and when you want to see it. Right and left clicking on the button will move it through its three states:
When the icon looks like this, never show the details window
When the icon looks like this, show me the details window at all times
When the icon looks like this, show me the details when I mouse over a particular entry in the overview window
If you would like all the CA windows to toggle on and off left click on this icon. You may move this icon on the screen by using LoTRO's <ctl>\ window arrange mode. Right clicking on this icon when the CA menus are visible gives you a menu for locking the windows, Save or Load data and a convenient link to open the Plugin manager.
Important Instruction Image UPDATES:
The X now means take this window away, I never want to see it again. Yes that's how it works in windows but not what you may expect in a LUA plugin.If you exercised your X privileges you must build a new window.
Note version 4 and higher show a third column which is the average damage.
- Open the Lotro Plugin manager (in the LoTRO System menu in the toolbar)
- select CA
- select the options tab.
- Once you see the General, UI, Buffs, and About tabs, select UI.
- You now see 3 more tabs called Tabs, Windows and Stats.
- Select the Windows tab
- Drag as many squares representing tabs on your new window as you wish to see. When you drag the first tab into the box it will create a window. Then you may either add tabs to that window or make new windows containing other tabs.
Most of the stated values are fairly obvious. Some of the calculations that may not be so straightforward are listed below:
When viewing a player, this shows the total amount the player contributed as a percentage of the total amount contributed by all players. When viewing a skill, it shows the total amount contributed by that skill as a percentage of the total amount contributed by all skills (for the relevant player).
Similar to Totals %.
: Does not include attacks that did no damage, but does include partial hits
: Does not includes attacks that did no damage, but does include partial hits
Critical Hits %
= critical hits / (hits - partial avoids)
= devastates / (hits - partial avoids)
= hits (includes partials) / attacks
= absorbs / hits
= immunes / attacks
= misses / attacks
= deflects / attacks
= resists / (attacks - misses - deflects) [NB: deflects to be included in equation in v4.2.3]
Includes blocks, parrys, & evades, as well as partial blocks, partial parrys, & partial evades
Includes only blocks, parrys, & evades
Includes only partial blocks, partial parrys, & partial evades
Any Avoidance %
= avoid / (attacks - misses - deflects) [NB: deflects to be included in equation in v4.2.3]
Only increments when you successfully interrupt a target.
Only increments when you successfully remove a corruption.
Damage Type %
= damage of that type / total damage
4.4.0+ New Features
4.1.0+ New Features
Breakdown of information by Crits/Devs/Partials/etc
- You may now zero out your accumulated statistics by typing "/ca reset" in your chat window!
- Beoring buffs and debuffs are now in traits, reload your traits in Combat Analysis->Options->About panel
In the stats panel, the selected skill is now shown more visibly under the title bar. Additionally, there is a new drop down menu that shows additional stat information. Selecting any on of the items in the list (eg: crits & devs) will show the total amount/proportion of damage done by that type of attack, as well as the average damage, etc.
Temporary Morale Tracking
Temporary Morale is now tracked. It shows up in purple along with other Heal information. It is included in the Send to Chat Data. The stats panel shows the amount of temporary morale heals that were wasted (timed out).
Note that only INCOMING temporary morale values can be recorded. The size of outgoing temporary morale bubbles is not recorded, as this does not appear in the player's combat log.
Combat Analysis now tracks the proportion of time that certain buffs were kept on the player, and that you kept certain debuffs on mobs. There are two new tabs that display this information, and it can also be sent to the chat window. The list of tracked buffs/debuffs can be configuration via the menu
Note that debuff tracking is based on the Combat Log data, so will be inaccurate when debuffs are applied to mobs with the same name.
The buff/debuff information is displayed in new tabs that aren't shown by default. To bring up this info, right click on any tab, and select "Restore Tab -> Buff" (or Debuff), or use the menu.
In addition, you can now track Debuffs and CC that you place on Mobs if running Combat Analysis 4.1.2+ with Buffbars 2.0.1+. Select the Mob Debuff and Mob CC triggers in Buffbars to get started.
Loading/Saving You can load and save your data!
Very useful for comparing runs on the same skirmish for different toon builds!
Access the file dialog screen by clicking the load or save icons in the mini menu accessed by right clicking the Combat Analysis Logo, by typing "/ca save" or "/ca load", or by clicking the load/save buttons in the menu (accessible by typing "/ca options").
When saving, you select all the encounters that you want to include in the save file. Saved files can be combined (or you can select multiple files and combine them when loading).
Saved data is accessible from any character on the same account.
Note that the file dialog allows all the file options you would expect (save, rename, delete, combine), but the LUA API doesn't really allow the deletion of files, etc, so the list you see in game may not represent what really exists in the file system.
You can load save files that are given to you by someone else by inserting them into your "Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\PluginData\<account name>\AllServers" folder. The file won't appear in the file dialog in game, but you can type in the name of the file (ignoring the "CombatAnalysisDataFile_" prefix) manually to load it.
Note that as of the first update after Isengard, many pet actions are actually listed under the player's name including:
- Most (maybe all) heals or power restores
- Any bleeds
Combat Entry/Exit and DPS values:
Encounters begin when you enter combat, and end when you leave combat.
The DPS values for individual mobs are calculated based on the start-time being when you first hit the mob (or were hit by the mob), and the end time being the moment the mob died (or when combat ends if the mob did not die). These values will always be slightly lower than the DPS values based on combat starting and ending (and are in most cases comparable to old cstats parses).
The minimum duration on all fights is set to one second.
If you are fighting multiple mobs with the same name, there is no way to detect which one you are hitting, so we make the assumption that you are always hitting the same mob, until it dies, and then assume you are now hitting a new mob (after a 1.5 second grace period).
