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.

    Have you considered making a thread in the Raid AddOns forum to present DXE to the masses?

  • Avatar of kollektiv kollektiv Aug 12, 2009 at 00:47 UTC - 0 likes

    I put the phrase in the wrong namespace, it should be fixed now. Also, if you see an error that starts with AceLocale-3.0, please only paste the first line, not the entire call stack, thanks.

    Yes, you can expect a Jaraxxus encounter before raid time.

  • Avatar of leibowski leibowski Aug 10, 2009 at 21:30 UTC - 0 likes

    should we expect any skeleton basline jaraxxus before tomorrow or not? Just wondering if it's worth the time throwing together my own jaraxxus tree just to see you put one up.

    Devtech: I don't think announcements are necessary. Blizzard already provides raid warning messages for important events. There is a fully implemented shadow crash warning. It will warn you if you're within 28 yards of the person being targeted and flash your screen. Also, an arrow pops up that points you directly away from the targeted position of the shadow crash. And, if anyone using DXE is promoted, it will mark the targeted person with the X symbol. Remember to set Vezax on focus if you're doing hard mode or else there's no valid unit id for Vezax when the Saronite Animus spawns. No valid unit id means it's not possible for your client to get the target of Vezax's shadow crash.

    Mercu: Read what Qupe wrote.

    iceheart3910: I added an option to change bar textures in r299. I moved pane settings to save by profile, so don't be alarmed if your pane settings change. You'll only have to adjust a few.

    hey kollektiv .. amazing addon. i love where its going .. is there anyway you can add like announcements to raid? or like how bigwigs/dbm hs for shadow crashes where it has the player say "i have crash" ? would really save me some memory from having to run bigwigs and dxe together.
