Hi - I've read through this whole thread to make sure I have an understanding of how this works now and I'd like to confirm I've got it right. Hope this is an appropriate place.
I'm looking to camp Aeonaxx in Deepholm while I'm at work (have WoW up in the background and listen for the blaring noise while doing my actual job). From what I gathered, pre-MoP mobs have trouble being triggered now? It requires either a mouseover or for nameplates to register for the alert to go off. Thus, to have Aeonaxx trigger an NPCScan alert without my active participation, I need to have "Always Show Nameplates" as well as "Friendly Players" checked in the Names section of the interface (because I believe Aeonaxx starts as a mountable friendly npc) and then hope he comes close enough to my camp spot that WoW sees the nameplate so that NPCScan can do its thing. Is this all correct? Am I missing something, or overcomplicating something? Thanks for your hard work!
is it normal i can't seem to remove the NPC vignette during combat ? ,
i have the pop up showing me how to remove/ignore with the mouse clicks but as long as my char is in combat it wont go away, bit annoying if if you have several pop up @ the same time or it just happens to be anchored near a action button :p
I'm studying WoW add-on programming, can you please tell me, in general, how the minimap detection works? As far as I can see a minimap icon for a rare is not a part of the UI framestack. How do you detect it? Thank you!
