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.

    Thank you so much for the update just now! As a tank I choose to only track certain timers and the timers I chose on several fights weren't working lol. Horridon Triple Puncture not showing was a pain! Keep up the good work, been using DXE since the beginning and glad to see it is back!

    Any news on If DXE is going to be updated? Or is it in motion of being updated? Such a great addon to let die.

    I hate to raid without DXE! BW and DBM is just annoying and nowhere near configurable as DXE.

    I'd like to see a MoP update aswell!

    +1 for MoP update :/

    Any chance for a true MoP update? I'd really love to keep using this addon and would be a bit upset if I was forced to use something else.

    I posted a zipfile with some spellid changes & updated the lua where I found it was causing errors for DS/FL & BH at http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1194594-What-add-on-is-this-!

    The changes work for me in LFR for DS but not sure for FL or BH
