Default Acheron - Death Reports [official thread]

"Acheron translates as the "river of woe" and it was believed to be a branch of the underworld river Styx over which in ancient Greek mythology Charon ferried the newly dead souls across into Hades."

Acheron provides an easily readable glimpse into the cause of death for anyone in your raid or party. In addition to the damage and healing that occurred to someone up to their moment of death, Acheron also tracks and displays key debuffs from bosses in 25-man raids which may also contribute to someone's death (Melt Armor on Al'ar, Corrosion on Felmyst, etc).

Right-clicking on a raid/party member unit frame will find a new option 'Show Death Reports'. Should be pretty self-explanatory from there.

/acheron config to bring up the config

Would you be able to include the HP values of the player in question, both current/max (in addition to his % health) for each combat log event?

I'm trying to keep the actual output relatively compact. What's not obvious from the screenshot, though, is that a tooltip pops up for each line of the report that contains more detailed information (any thing of note about the event like a crit or crush or special debuff as well as the actual combat log text). So I could probably throw the current/max health in there.

Looks promising. I'll give it a go tonight. (Mostly posting so I can keep an eye on this thread easily. :P)

Is there a way to change the font of the combatlog lines? Mine are really small (much smaller than on your screenshot) and are hard to spot tbh.
Additionally, I was wondering if there's a way you could disable info gathering on thrash packs? I'm not sure if it's Ancheron, or something else bothering my setup yet, but whenever in Sunwell and we fight thrash my fps goes down alot, bosses are fine.
I'm sorry that I didn't try this myself and disabled Ancheron on thrash to test it and there's a few days before I'm in a raid again.
Perhaps you know if this would affect thrash more than bosses performance wise?

Great concept though, I like the layout better than GrimReaper.

There's nothing that I know of that should impact performance differently between bosses and trash. Detecting the difference and enabling Acheron dynamically is probably more complicated than I want to get. But I think I probably should add an easier way to enable/disable Acheron from in-game config.

I'll also look at adding some more display-oriented configuration, such as the font and font size.

A "Clear" button on the main window might be a nice addition. Not just by /command.
