How to disable nameplates for those damn snakes?

Post by Crommi » Fri Jun 18, 2010 1:09 am

So, been doing PvP now and one thing that gets really annoying is hunters dropping a snaketrap and filling my screen with their healthbars. I really like using the default nameplates because they're simple and clean, so I don't want to switch over to Aloft or Tidyplates because it would take the patience of thousand men to get rid off all that glitter and eyecandy and change them to look like default ones. I know Overhead was the addon for this but it hasn't been updated in 9 months and no longer works.

As the titles says, does anyone know addon or script to turn off nameplates for specific units like snakespam or totems?

Interface > Names > Unit Nameplates: Untick Guardians and Totems under Enemy Units.

Do not untick Totems if you want to kill that Tremor before Intimidating Shout. And you should know that prot-pvp is god damn effective atm (if you want to take use of your awesome pve-tanking gear)!
Problem? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm pretty sure the snakes from traps are just identified as "beasts", not guardians. But I just realized that I can still use TC on battlestance and snakes have ~100hp, so it's all good

I assure you, they're guardians.

Didn't see any snakespam yesterday, so I'll take your word for it.
