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.

    Since the spell to dispel CC and other magical debuff is the same, it's not possible to prioritize dispel in this condition.
    A special status could be added to the MUF but it's not possible right now.

    I'm a priest and I would like to set a different color to Magical Control and other Magical Debuff (even if the same left button is used to dispel)

    Is it possible ?

    This is an interesting concept, please post this as a feature request in the ticket system.

    Is it possible to whitelist debuffs rather than blacklist them?

    Say I only want to use decursive for clearing CCs in pvp, it is much easier to specify sheep/repentance/fear etc rather than removing 100 odd debuffs.

    Well this is already possible using the priority and the skip list, just add the groups you want to monitor in the priority list and add those you don't want to see to the skip list.

    at first: I want to thank you for this awesome addon, i use it since many months and it works / help me great!

    But the real reason for my comment: It would be Epic, if you could add an option, to check the debuffs only in special groups of my raid (+ an option to set these special groups -> e.g. grp 1,2,3,4,5).
    Would make Decursive perfect! ;)

    Hope you can understand my noob-english (I'm from germany).

    Thanks, <3
