Getting Started

When you first login with this AddOn you will see a black transparent rectangle with a blue bar labeled 'Default', called the encounter pane, in the center of your screen. Shift+Click on it to move it. From left to right you will see:

  1. Stop Icon: Halts the current encounter (you should rarely have to do this)
  2. Menu Icon: Opens the configuration dialog
  3. Folder Icon: Opens a drop down menu to activate encounters
  4. Lock Icon: Toggles frame anchors
  5. Windows Icon: Opens a drop down menu to show interface windows

Also, if you ever hide the pane and can't get it to show, type /dxe for commands. There is also a minimap icon, which can open the configuration dialog.

    i've stopped playing, guild and everyone i know stopped so...

    i dont know if DXE still works in latest patch, if it does timers were good, some better than others but generally good

    as for the next expansion i probably will play it and update DXE for it

    Hello

    Ive used DXE ages ago and would like to use it again. At its current status is it usable for raids, i mean are the timers etc are acurate or still a bit "alpha"?

    Added as promised first Alpha for Siege of Orgrimmar

    Some bosses aren't fully done (paragons comes to mind), there will be probably bugs so use the Tickets to report them

    DXE is usuable for the encounters, at least the normal ones and some in Heroic

    I will try to update as the my time allow it, so... happy testing/gaming and try do not cast some curse on me if something doesn't work :|

    @Maev81: Go

    My mind has been tuned to the sounds and alarms of DXE haha. It prioritizes the auditory and visual input much better than DBM or BigWigs.

    sorry for late reply

    tmil93: Thank you, i will really try to release a alpha for next Tuesday or Wednesday regardless of bosses code state but at least the first ones will be near accurable for normal and heroic because i tested them on guild run (but of course bugs can still be there)

    Thalirium: although i didn't make this for money a donation is always nice, the Donation link on this site dont even go to me, goes to the original creator, so thats proves that money wasn't the reason i'm doing this, the reason is basically what you said and that's no other comes close to the customization DXE gives

    Having used this exclusively through Wrath doing server first kills and just started playing again, I have to say thank you. This is hands down is the best boss encounter tool and nothing else come close. That you have maintained it is incredible. I have to ask if a donation would assist in keeping this addon up to date as it is something that I believe does not receive the attention it deserved. This is what should be the standard.

    Hello Maev, I wanted to begin by thanking you for putting your time and effort into updating such an incredible add-on. Many of my guildies are eagerly awaiting an SoO version so we can stop using bigwigs/dbm.

    I understand the reasoning you have behind not wanting to test in guild runs, but as someone who's currently doing full clears of normal SoO as well as progressing on the heroic bosses, I would gladly test it for you if need be (I know the mechanics, so I can tell if timers are missing for certain things or incorrectly timed), if that would help in any way. I'm not sure if you have access to my email through this website, but if not, you can contact me at [email protected]

    Godspeed.

    @dkmyirl: Go

    thanks dkmyirl

    it will come, i had really bad weeks in real life, close family funeral was last one

    anyway...i already reply on curse, didn't make yet spoils and paragon and others didn't even had time to do a LFR or Flex and even less for Guild to test them but will have time this weekend (hopelly)

    i hope to progress some this week and release next week what i've got to people that want to test it (not recommend it for guild runs yet)

    it will come, i'm not kind of a person to not finish what i promise to do

    Maev81 your work reviving this addon through ToT was heroic and can't be underestimated.

    However I'm getting the fear since it's a few weeks since any comment regarding SoO. Can you put us out of our misery and say if it's going to happen.

    I can happily wait patiently if I'm certain it's coming. I'm just not committing to any other boss mod until you say this is dead.

    I can't get rid of the adulterous feelings I get when I smile at BigWigs and say " I really like you, but.........".
