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.

    Yeah, it's on my todo list. It'd only take me about 10 minutes to do, so you'll probably see it in the alpha sometime this week.

    Have you thought of implementing an "on the fly" raid timer for "x" ability used macros from tanks?

    DBM's pizza timers are nice for that and I'd love to see that available :P!

    Ah, Blizzard added a new map called The Mind's Eye for when you enter the portal. I've added it in the latest alpha. It should be fixed now.

    Edit: Updated it again with the real dimensions of The Mind's Eye

    Still gettting this error with latest update on yogg saron encounter. I also noticed that the arrows when entering the portals don't always reset.
