Rune Layouts

Description

Acherus is a Death Knight addon providing displays for runes, procs, runic power, and diseases. A great effort has been put in to make all features customizable. Animations are provided to make it very easy to see when things become available and unavailable.

Enjoy!

Usage

Slash Command

To open the configuration type /ac or /acherus, click on the minimap button, or use a Data Broker display that's compatible with launchers.

Translation Request

I currently need translators to help convert the English in the menus into the following languages:

  • French
  • Korean
  • Latin American Spanish
  • Russian
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Spanish
  • Traditional Chinese

Go to the localization page if you'd like to translate. It's open to anyone with an account. Curse has a system setup so that phrases can be translated very fast and easily with no manual editing of files. Thanks!

FAQ

Acherus uses tons of memory / cpu!

This is just because it starts with "A" and is loading first in your setup, and getting blamed for all the resources used in shared libraries by all your addons. If you're concerned you can test by installing standalone versions of the libraries, especially Ace3. It's normal though; some addon always gets blamed for the shared libraries. It's not a real problem.

What was AcherusLoader?

AcherusLoader was a folder in older versions that helped the addon load only on Death Knight characters. Newer versions handle this differently. Now, if you forget to manually disable Acherus on a non-DK, it will disable itself. You can delete the old AcherusLoader folder if you still have it.

    Hi kollektiv, I just did most of the Traditional Chinese translation for KN Runes. However, I found some words very confusing without a context, so I just left those there. Hope this could help and speed up the project. Just can't wait to see this epic addon gets released. ^_^
