Decursive is a cleansing mod intended to make affliction removal easy, effective and fun for all the classes having this ability.

Decursive's options are not directly available in the "Interface" panel due to ongoing tainting issues Blizzard is not willing to fix.

Decursive key benefits

  • Ease of use:

    • Decursive supports all classes with cleansing abilities and configures itself automatically,
      it works straight out of the box, no configuration is required.
    • Intuitive interface and detailed options, Decursive is suitable for simple usage and power users.
  • Control what and who you want to dispel:

    • Easily Filter out afflictions you don't want to cure or that are useless to remove by class (some are pre-configured).
      (Such as afflictions affecting mana on non-mana classes, etc...).
    • Choose between what you can dispel (magic, curses, poison, diseases, charms) choosing their priority.
      (this allows you to share the cleansing work with other players effectively)
    • Prioritize or exclude members.
      (keep players, classes, or raid groups in a specific order to cleanse them in order of importance)
  • Manage Mind controlled units:

    • If you are a Mage, a Druid or a Shaman you can Polymorph/Cyclone/Hex mind-controlled players.
    • In any case Decursive will allow you to target mind controlled units easily.
    • Decursive supports magic charming affect removal for Shamans (Purge and Hex), Priests (Dispel Magic),
      Hunters (Tranquilizing Shot), and Warlocks (Fellhunter and Doomguards spells).
  • Don't waste time:

    • Your cleansing spell Cooldown is displayed to maximize your dispel speed.
    • An automatic blacklist will prevent you from loosing time on players who can't be dispelled.
      (player 'out of line of sight' for example).
    • Decursive choose a logical cleansing order depending on your current position in the raid.
      (preventing dispel concurrence between players and thus 'nothing to dispel' messages)
  • React faster:

    • Visual and/or auditive alerts when someone needs your attention and can be dispelled.
    • Special sound alert when Unstable Affliction is detected and you're about to dispel it.
    • Visual and auditive alert when your dispel attempts are resisted or fail.
  • Integration in any interface:

  • Highly optimized and effective coding:

    • Decursive was developed with memory and CPU usage in mind, installing Decursive won't affect your frame rate even in the worst battle conditions.
    • Bug free: bugs are not tolerated in Decursive.

In brief, what you get with Decursive is effectiveness, a player using Decursive will always dispel faster than other players.

    In the new alpha: "Decursive will now announce its version every 30 minutes when zoning (on PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD). No other mod I know of arbitrarily spams the addon channel with its own version announces.

    Whether version checking and/or announce spamming for a mod is really necessary or not is one issue (it isn't). But will you be providing an ingame option to completely disable this new version announcing/checking if someone prefers not to use it?

    I disabled anti-aliasing again in the latest alpha.

    On latest non-release version, the MUF text is different than before, and, at least for me, harder to see. I tried looking around for any option to change it but I didn't find anything.

    If that is not just a temporary glitch, and will be actually used for release, please add a way to go back to the normal font that was used before.

    Thanks, and best regards.

    I am a Resto Shaman and I have used Decursive in the past. But now, it doesn't allow me to cure posions? I still have the Cleanse Spirit ability but Decursive doesn't recognize that I can still remove a posion effect. So, what good is Decursive now? Well, to a Resto Shaman that is?

    Thanks for updating - is a great addon.

    From a mage's perspective, is it possible to alter the the polymorph spell that is cast ? I'd love to see those monkeys coming up (new glyph that polys a Monkey off a standard sheep spell)

    Happy to go into the lua if this is the only way - but would be grateful to know where and which spell id to set it to

    Big thanks
