Is there a plugin that calculates range?

I've got some ranged spells that are up to 28 meters, one that cuts off at 20... and I can't for the life of me figure out what a "meter" is in game. I have to wait for the skill to ungray to figure out when I'm in range, which can be a little distracting in some situations.

Are there any plugins that will let you set up triggers to notify you when your crosshair focuses on a target that is within set ranges? That would be really neat.

    Impossible, API doesnt allow us to get coordinates of our target

    Well, that's frustrating. I was hoping that whatever caused an ability icon to turn from gray to active was accessible to modders.

    Some older cursor editing add-ons could pull the range value from you to the target. The one I used is broken and abandoned, not sure about others. In the meantime, the default crosshair 'shrinks' when a target is in range of your light attacks and flashes red when a blow (not DoT tick) connects. Play enough and you get a sense for range.

    There is a way to get distance with a CompassDistance to a compass pin in range. While this range is just an estimate its the only one that works with compass pins (red dots etc.).

    I'm sure someone will find a way, nothings impossible. It would be an amazing add-on if someone figured it out. I'm sure EVERYONE that PvPs will download it lol.

    P.S. @Fyrakin , I love your minimap :smiley:

    yeah the addon i used to use was discontinued and the guy who made it indicated it was because ZOS removed the availability of the data that would have helped the addon find out range. it was such a useful addon too. such a shame.
