Priority Queue is a very simple idea. Based on your class you choose a list of abilities and place them in order (usually highest dps ability first). Priority Queue will then display the icon for that ability in a small frame when its available.
This way you can select a list of abilities to use and see the icon for the next skill in sequence. Where this works particularly well is for procs. eg: an Enhancement Shaman will have Lightning Bolt as top priority but only when he gets 5 stacks of Maelstrom Weapon buffs and thus its instant cast. Similarly a mage will want to use Pyroblast as top priority but only when he gets a hot streak.
Having had the ShockAndAwe addon available for over 6 months now I regularly get pleas from other classes/specs to do something similar for them. Priority Queue is that something.
Now of course as I don't have lvl 80s of all the different classes and specs I will rely on you the user community to provide the things that should be in the priority list for your class. I can code it and you can select it as a priority, in whatever order you like.
In order to get the correct skills to work I need to do two things.
1) I need to know what skills your class/spec uses 1a) I need to know what conditions those abilities are used under - eg: only use when buff X on target or when Y procs - sometimes really simple - only use when available
2) I need to know what priority to use the skills in this is usually highest dps/threat first.
So when you install this early beta please be aware that your personal class/spec might not be enabled if this is the case please rather than moan, post the list of skills you use and I can add them to the list. You can then try to work out the priority order and let me know what works for you.
This project could be great for lots of classes but it needs input and support from the community for it to work.
