Decursive's options are not directly available in the "Interface" panel due to ongoing tainting issues Blizzard is not willing to fix.

Decursive key benefits

  • Ease of use:

    • Decursive supports all classes with cleansing abilities (Symbiosis' links included) and configures itself automatically,
      it works straight out of the box, no configuration is required.
    • Intuitive interface and detailed options, Decursive is suitable for simple usage and power users.
  • Control what and who you want to dispel:

    • Easily Filter out afflictions you don't want to cure or that are useless to remove by class (some are pre-configured).
      (Such as afflictions affecting mana on non-mana classes, etc...).
    • Choose between what you can dispel (magic, curses, poison, diseases, charms) choosing their priority.
      (this allows you to share the cleansing work with other players effectively)
    • Prioritize or exclude members.
      (keep players, classes, or raid groups in a specific order to cleanse them in order of importance)
  • Manage Mind controlled units:

    • If you are a Mage, a Druid or a Shaman you can Polymorph/Cyclone/Hex mind-controlled players.
    • In any case Decursive will allow you to target mind controlled units easily.
    • Decursive supports magic charming affect removal for Shamans (Purge and Hex), Priests (Dispel Magic),
      Hunters (Tranquilizing Shot), and Warlocks (Fellhunter and Doomguards spells).
  • Don't waste time:

    • Your cleansing spell Cooldown is displayed to maximize your dispel speed.
    • An automatic blacklist will prevent you from loosing time on players who can't be dispelled.
      (player 'out of line of sight' for example).
    • Decursive choose a logical cleansing order depending on your current position in the raid.
      (preventing dispel concurrence between players and thus 'nothing to dispel' messages)
  • React faster:

    • Visual and/or auditive alerts when someone needs your attention and can be dispelled.
    • Special sound alert when Unstable Affliction is detected and you're about to dispel it.
    • Visual and auditive alert when your dispel attempts are resisted or fail.
  • Integration in any interface:

  • Highly optimized and effective coding:

    • Decursive was developed with memory and CPU usage in mind, installing Decursive won't affect your frame rate even in the worst battle conditions.
    • Bug free: bugs are not tolerated in Decursive.

In brief, what you get with Decursive is effectiveness, a player using Decursive will always dispel faster than other players.

    @schmed11:

    What is your class and what spells should Decursive use?
    I got no feedback from people on the beta... Blizzard probably change some spell names. I need to add the spell IDs of those spells so Decursive can use them.

    Quick question. I'm in the beta and i downloaded the alpha decursive. It doesnt throw back any errors at me, and all things appear functional upon first glance but during combat i noticed nothing ever appeared on my micro unit frames. Once i checked out the options i saw that under the tab to check and select which afflictions to watch for, every one of them was greyed out and un-selectable except for 'charm'. Anyone else having this issue with the beta version or is there something im not doing right?

    thanks

    @Nisdenar:

    I'm not sure to understand your problem correctly but to open the option panels you can either alt-right click on the MUF handle or you can use the Blizzard Menu (the 'escape' menu)->Interface->Add-ons->Decursive.

    Also note that the images available here are several years old, many things have changed since then (Drop-down option menus have disappeared).

    I see your point concerning vertical orientation of the MUFs, I'll add it to my todo list.

    Archarodim,

    Sorry to be a problem; I can see under the "images" tab, the screen interface for the MUF options. I think that is where my problem lies. But I can't seem to figure out how to open that interface. I know that I am missing something simple.

    I did think about the option of setting the number of units per line to 1, which would allow a verticle line. For small groups this does work, but for 25-40 man raids that gets to be a very long MUF. I can adjust that horizontal number displayed for different raids; but was hoping for something similar to what you have for the horizontal lines, setting a maximum number per line and automatically adding additional lines when that maximum is exceded. Or in the case of a vertical setting, would add additional vertical columns when the maximum is exceeded.

    In any case, thanks for the great addon and for responding.

    thanks,

    I do have a quick question, when I downloaded the latest version, my profile got reset (probably something I did). Below the MUF there are "help tips" displayed which show the details of the debuff you are removing. I want to turn those off, but can't remember how. I have gone through the interfaces I can find, and turned off everything that seems to relate to the help, but nothing works.

    I am obviously forgetting something, but don't know what. Any help would be appreciated.

    Look under the MUF options and look for "Show Tooltips on afflicted units"

    I do have a suggestion for a later update. Would it be possible to add an options to orient the MUF in a vertical bar rather than a horizontal one?

    It's already possible, just set the "Number of units per line" option to 1

    I love the interface for options and whatnot, along with the messages that come up on the screen. Just wanted to come back and say this.
