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.
