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.

    Great addon, thanks for all the work. Had an issue last night in 25 man IC where only two people would get marked on Fester. Maybe it's me and I had the addon setup incorrectly but it became a pain when the third mark would not pop and I had to resort to manual callouts.

    Could you add Mortal Wound cast warning for Stinky and Precious?

  • Avatar of ShadowLycaon ShadowLycaon Jan 08, 2010 at 13:30 UTC - 0 likes

    A few timers that I personally added that you could use if you wish:

    • Cooldown for FIRST unstable experiment(from engage): 25s
    • Cooldown for unstable experiment after Tear Gas aura is removed: 20s
    • Time to first Malleable Goo after Tear Gas: 6s
    • Cooldown of Malleable Goo: 25s
    • Time to first Gas Bomb after Tear Gas: 15s
    • Cooldown of Gas Bomb: 35s
    • Tear Gas Duration(from aura applied): 20s -> Not 100% on this one.

    Hope it helps, have not got a chance to test them fully though, from all video evidence they seem accurate though. These are for 25 man only, I am not sure if the timers are the same for 10 man.

    @Veev: Hey, that's one of the anchors for the bars. Click the lock on the pane to toggle it. Glad you like it =)

    @Stoutenn: Refer to the quoted stuff here http://forums.wowace.com/showpost.php?p=290349&postcount=115. I'd make the duration something like 1000. To remove it you could make a macro for '/script DXE.Arrows:RemoveAll()'. Note that the arrows will only work in raid instances that I have map dimensions for.

    Sup Kollektiv, just tried this out tonight, beats my scrub homemade addon :P

    One of the frames seems to be blocking mouse interaction on my screen (a horizontal line a few inches above the middle of the screen), where if I right click to pan camera it has no response. Any workaround for this?

    Thanks for an awesome addon.

    I have a question/request. Would it be possible to get directional arrows to a specific person for an entire fight?

    I'm thinking for Rotface, some of our raiders struggle to locate the OT quickly enough whilst he's running round the edge.

    Thanks again!

    @bunshun: I don't even plan on adding that feature. It's out of scope for this addon

    @mists: It's added in the latest alpha

    We haven't done putricide yet. You'll have to be patient.
