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.

    is there any way I can preserve the settings I have/had for old DXE with the new addon?

    @Kesitah: Go Yeah, the arrows will get a glorious return. Keep an eye on the issue on google -> There will be a beta release for arrows testing.

    Since I am not at home right now, I (being interested) looked into the source-code of your version to at least know something already. Good to hear that DXE is back. But one question: I saw (if I saw right in the source code) you did not implement the 3D Arrows in the current encounters (which are present in KLE), but you have the "principial" core code for them present.

    Will the 3D Arrows be back in the actual encounters, at some point? Thanks in advance!

    Since kollektiv and Shefki gave me permission, I will post my DXE Version which is hosted at:

    Updates will be frequent during (heroic) progression and I have some cleanups and ideas planned for the time between content patches.

    Bugs and suggestions are best filled on the google page but I will keep watching the DXE forum thread here and/or the DXE project page.

    From a fellow Hydraxian, thanks for your work on this. We're still working through the regulars, not the hardmodes so I don't really want to be testing it right now, but I'm excited for a release! Shine on you crazy diamonds!

    Has the Deus Vox guild stopped updating this addon?

    Nice to see this is still going, Recently just checked back to see if anything had been updated, and it seems alot has happened. We've been writing our own encounters over time, so I may be willing to share some of these.

    I just checked the ones that have been posted up here, and some heroic versions won't work properly. For now I'll point out a main problem some people might have with maloriak heroic. We use a warlock to keep curse of tongues up on the boss, looking at Maloriak it is expecting the english text, but this is the problem, if you use a warlock the boss speaks in demonic making this event useless for anyone using curse of tongues. You need to change it to to pick up BOSS_CHAT_EMOTE (i think) and search the system message, ie the yellow text you get on phase changes. This will avoid the problem you will get when using a warlock to keep curse of tongues up and timers not working.
