    I thought this addon became useless with the last update. Is this not the case?

    It will remove you from the list. Addons have no way to track name changes of other players.

    To make it a little more interesting, changing your name effectively resets your saved variables unless you modify your saved variables to use your new name before loading the game.

    Miats works perfectly BUT, not when an enemy charges a heavy attack from stealth...
    Just when he release his button and he gets out of stealth, while the projectile is travelling then you get notified.


    Used to be tracking casts even from stealth and that was not cool, imho have it on. If your enemy is not in melee range or very close you listen to beep you roll/wings. EZ

    Only if you change your @account name!
    If you change just the character name and the addon was developed corretly the name change will keep your SavedVariables.
    if not, the addon's usage of ZO_SavedVars is using an outdated function :New and should be changed.
