    edit: halfus 25 hc, timers and warnings worked great, but on valiona, some worked some didnt. I wonder whats causing that.

    Didn't tested mine for BWD, think will do today in 25 man, but as it worked on Atramedes (tested previous week), think will work on others too. If Shuang's not working for you, try mine, or if missing some timers/options. Nefarian and Maloriak not implemented. Heroic - only Magmaw based on BigWigs.

    Just replace Interface\AddOns\DXE_Descent\Encounters.lua with this one if want to try.

    1st - bump to 513, fixed what appears to have been a bug where special characters like '#5#' weren't being parsed for the say announcements.

    2nd - encounter updates

    Atramedes - fixed bug from changing multifriendly to friendly for tracking mark. (tested working on 10s normal for all timers)

    Omnitron - most of it doesn't work on heroic 10s, everything but poison bombs seems to work on normal 10s.

    I'll look into the comments soon, although I have made a couple of random updates which I didn't keep track off.

    That said, I made a few somewhat major changes, and at least one isn't back compatible so... I'm uploading our current 'working version' of DXE, and unofficial 512 release.

    Points: - bump # of health watcher up to 5 (non-backwards compatible, and used for AC + Halfus)

    - allows left click of health watcher to do a '/targetexact <name>' for the unit. It appears to work so far at least, but it (ofc) requires use of secure frames so if the plates aren't up before combat starts you are sol on targetting

    - added map data - all but throne was taken form LibMapData, for a more accurate range finder

    - expanded bandage list for range finder 18 yard check

    - added pair proximity window - compares all pairs of players in raid and displays who is withing the threshold distance of other players... a work in progress

    - min range for range finders, ie - must be > min range < range to trigger, useful for reducing # of entries on fights where you group up in tight clumps... also a work in progress.

    Hey, I've been on alt 10man bwd with pug today. On omnitron fight, the warning and announces weren't working at all, which is strange because:

    events = {
    	-- Conductor
    	        type = "combatevent",
    		eventtype = "SPELL_AURA_APPLIED",
    		spellid = {79888, 91431},
    		execute = {
    			"raidicon", "conductormark",
    			"announce", "conductorsay",
    	--  Poison Bombs
    		type = "combatevent",
    		eventtype = "SPELL_SUMMON",
    		spellname = {80053, 91513},
    		srcnpcid = 42180,
    		execute = {

    seems correct. I've even added:



    "raidicon", "conductormark",
    "announce", "conductorsay",

    but still doesn't work. Anyone know if this should work, or why it isn't working ?

    Just a note on your fireball barrage changes, you changed the scorching breath warnings etc to fireball warnings.

    You also have fireballwarn alert in twice once for scorching breath and once for fireball barrage

    Depending on what council you mean the answer is... kinda.

    I originally only had glaciate for the ascendant council, but I have been trying to build on it... but as I think I said before, I've only pulled them that first night when I first started mucking with DXE and a couple of times since (yay for low levels of wiping). I'm going to be killing them again this week and should be able to test out a few more of the timers. For the golemn council / omnitron, I, honestly hadn't added any timers at first but some people in guild wanted timers... so I tried building some in.

    Unfortunately, this was all built under the premise of using it in guild until or in augmentation of whatever the official DXE release turned out to be. I'm, sadly, not surprised ya'll are seeing quite a few errors =/

    Updates: Al'Akir encounter - acid rain still isn't working but doesn't trigger errors at least, wind burst CD should not work for 25s as well as tens, added lightning strike CD that *may* work... didn't get to test.

    Halfus Wyrmbreaker - added a warning for fireball barrage (untested thanks to the mia tank /sadface), added storm rider, nether scion and timewarden to tracing. There is a 4 NPC tracing limit, that I'm trying to increase to 5, so it won't trace the Slate Dragon at the moment... probably.

    Council - went through and tried to make sure everything was hooked up, hardenskincd wasn't being triggered, I also added per difficulty amounts for hardenskin and aegis... along with fixing the spell id mix up. Removed aegis duration ( it wasn't hooked up and did nothing since aegis running its full duration was a wipe), hooked aegiscd back up... its not very accurate though =/ Added per difficulty #s for aegis absorb amount.. (ps - no clue if these even work) I only saw 2 spells on wowhead though... so no clue if its remotely accurate for heroics.

    Good luck!

    ps - I despise how wikis require double line break to actually sperate anything :(

    Shuang, it seemed tonight on Council a lot of the CD dropdowns weren't showing up for some. I may be entirely mistaken or not.

    Have you tested them on council?

    I hope they didnt decide to end development. DXE is like my swiss army knife for wow. One of the best and most useful features of DXE was the bars all had different colors. Made it ALOT easier to look at a glance at timers and notice what one i really needed to focus on. Its ease of use and setting up was great, and to be able to config every timer for every encounter was great, plus you can test each one out too. I check to see if been updated like 4 times a day lol. It nice to see that others making there own encounters for DXE rather to use another boss mod with encounters already, show how much others like DXE.
