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.

    any chance of the implementation of the "pizza" custom timer bars? And if so, will that send across to the raid to see on their side (provided they are using dxe)? Using bigwigs, I was able to send a global timer for "breaks" =)

    Hello, I've been using this addon throughout this evening raid (heroic coliseum) and got a couple of observations. The first of all may seem pretty trivial if not stupid, but on beasts I never had any arrow showing up when I had bile/toxin, my guess is that the whole raid needs the addon installed for the arrows to work (I was the only one with it) or should they work in any case? I apologize but I have not been able to find an answer to this. Also, on beasts the timers for the phases were off, we had the jormungars active when the addon showed like 10-12 seconds left before p2.

    Oh, yeah I just double checked the spellid. It was off by 1 digit ;).

    Your data verifies the timers I got. In attempt 4 it's 176 seconds from the first event on Dreadscale to the first event on Icehowl. Minus the phase transition (10 seconds) to get 166. Attempt 7 is 177 seconds.

    This is way easier to see if you log chat using /chatlog

    Edit: When I said +15 second transition 4 posts down I meant +10 seconds

    Edit2: Looks like the first phase lasts 137 seconds w/o transition.

    My times are without the phase transition, it's just from when they first act in the combat log. Granted, not the best way to check, but I don't know of any other way.

    P.S. Wow, took me almost a minute to realise g isn't actually part of the commit ID :-P. But, after that, that spell still isn't in the latest version. :-)

    I forgot to mention, I don't start the timer until AFTER the phase transition is over.

    Aside two attempts tonight where we hit the enrage, this is what I based that on: http://wolfheart.ro/~gcbirzan/beasts.txt

    For the spellid: Wasn't in g9f436a6, which is the latest released version.

    I'm pretty sure the Jormungar phase is 2:46 after doing a bunch of attempts. If you add in the phase transition it's 3:01 (2:46 + 15 second transition). I got 3:03 as the lowest bound for Icehowl's enrage (w/o phase transition). Is Gormok's enrage 3:00 without the initial intro? I'll add in that spellid, thanks.

    Edit: I already added in the spellid before

    True, sorry for the misinformation, that fight is a bit weird in terms of enrage timers. Icehowl's enrage was anywhere from 3:00 to 3:05 on the 4 attempts where we hit it. The worms' was always 2:59/3:00 for us, not 2:46 as you're using. For Gormok, we never had more than 3:00. Granted, the times are from the first time the mob appears in the combat log, which might not always be exactly when it becomes active... Also, Frothing Rage's ID on 25 man heroic is 67659.
