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.

    If you could add a pull timer for Ultraxion, that would be amazing. Other than that, great Add-on and thank you so much for keeping it updated.

    Hey. I just recently swapped back to this in hopes that it would feature separate Morchok and Kohcrom timers for at least Stomps, but also Resonating Crystal spawning would be nice, in Heroic Mode. Looking through the Encounter options it's not clear whether or not this is implemented.

    Hi everyone Not making a ticket, because i cant support thoroughly the explanation of my problem. Ever since the new update pushes came out a few days ago, my wow became unstable. It just closes randomly without any warning or error message. During play, During raid etc. I have tried to raid today without this mod and i had no error whatsoever. This doesn't prove anything. Just having a strong suspicion where the source of my problems lie. Also if someone experiences the same, please speak up too.

    Thanks

    Will there be an update soon for the accurate Heroic Rag seed timers? There are times when the timer isn't even showing as well.

    @mysticalos: Go Yeah, I too hate the concept of using an emote or a yell to start timers and such, but it's a limitation in the DXE code. I'm working on improving that over time.

    superheated is the soft enrage, it's 5 min on normal 6 min on heroic. Idealy you want to push phase 2 before superheated or you'll probably wipe to stomp.

    @Harleschorsch
    you are using a LOT of unnessesary yells for events that have ENGAGE triggers, or Emotes that can be local free by using spellids since emotes typically have spellid in them you can just msg find the ID which will be universal to all languages.

    Is there a way to turn off the decimals in the timer numbers? For example, it will show 5.59, 5.58, etc. when counting down. Would there be a way to make it show just 5, 4, 3...?

    @Harleschorsch, done...

    @hardkain: Go That's because no one translated the /yell from Alysrazor yet. Go here: http://www.wowace.com/addons/deus-vox-encounters/localization/ruRU/?namespace=chat_firelands and translate the string "^These skies are MINE!" to Russian. It's the first yell when the fight starts.
    As soon as the next version is avilable on wowace the mod should start.
