I'm a little confused as to why you've posted this here, on the curse page, and on in the ticket tracker, in an already existing ticket that has absolutely nothing to do with the topic you're bringing up, which is a closed ticket O.O Not to mention, it was only in the ticket that you actually posted your full question:
Is there a way to turn off the emphasized cooldowns? I have no need for it personally. To show a large icon for my cooldowns I have no use for. Otherwise always loved bigwigs!
BigWigs doesn't show "a large icon for your cooldowns". Are you getting confused by the bar testing functionality, where the Pulse feature is used? Pulse has nothing to do with emphasize and is off by default everywhere.
