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.

    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.

    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...?

    @hardkain: Go That's because no one translated the /yell from Alysrazor yet. Go here: 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.

    rhyo works perfect if you just use INSTANCE_ENCOUNTER_ENGAGE_UNIT

    combat regen and CIDs kind of fail on him if you cannot target his body on pull and don't have his feet in table (or targeted). quite limiting there.

    @autobot200: Go

    v623 has a nicely working encounter detection. Rhyolith started 10 out of 10 times for me.

    @autobot200: Go

    Rhyolith is a b*tch to detect properly. I'll be implementing a better pull detection shortly
