    Here's what I've been using. It's just the above put into it's own little addon - took all of about ten seconds and it's been working fine for me.

    posted a message on Spell/Ability Monitor Display: Spectrum
    I've often contemplated the idea of having everything I need displayed on my action bars. My play style usually lends to me staring in one of two places - my action bars as DPS or my raid frames as a healer. Between that and trying not to stand in fires, more bars, graphs, and icons to watch always end up leaving me missing something. Grid has for a long time provided everything I need as a healer in one spot and I wondered if it would be possible to do the same with the action bars for a DPS class. In that aspect this is an interesting idea.

    My biggest issue is that I'm not sure how distracting having all these bars (even stacked) would be. Or how visible they would be while still providing the necessary visibility I need for my action bar icons in the first place. I'm not sure separate timers for cooldown and debuff activity matter if the former is longer than the latter - it doesn't matter if your debuff wore off if you cannot reapply it, unless there is a situation where a debuff being up affects what skills you are using? For instance as a priest if my plague gets resisted (or removed), I can't attempt to put it up again for 30 seconds, so there's no point in knowing it's not up if it's still on cooldown. It's extraneous and potentially distracting information.

    My big thing is as a mage (for example) tracking living bomb and improved scorch - it would be kinda nice to have a timer or indicator of some sort right on the related skill action button rather than some bars off to the side where I have to keep readjusting focus. My best thought was just something like Grid with a colored square in the corner of the button or a border that just changed from green (applied) to yellow (wearing off in x) to red (not applied). Simple, not changing too much so not a distraction, and combined with a cooldown timer like OmniCC and an appropriate value for x comprehensive.

    can anyone pls tell me if bt4 does debuff/buff highlighting. i can find no info on this option but find it hard to believe that something this advanced would be missing some thing so vital.
    No. It does not.

    No, AoE damage totems are being buffed, their damage is being increased and their threat removed IIRC. So you only want one flametongue and then damage totems instead of three flametongues.

    I can see this being useful.

    Did anyone else get a full layout with a bunch of black squares after putting Pitbull (3) into config mode? I had to reload my UI to get rid of them.

    Still looking for a PoM plugin that works if someone knows of one :/. Using something else in the meantime but the less I need to watch, the better!

    I am unable to find a copy of GridStatusMending on wowi, wowace projects, or Curse that has been updated recently. Where did you update it?

    If I get time this evening I'll check them out if someone hasn't done it by then.

    Well, this is over a period of a raid, and I know I wasn't just chilling AFK for part of it. I'll look into recording a log and taking a look at it. Thanks.

    posted a message on Recount DPS Oddity
    I noticed something odd with Recount on my priest the other day. I had respecced shadow to help gear a new healer. We were running a bunch of heroics and I started to notice a very odd pattern. Although the reported DPS was reasonably high, my damage done was usually significantly lower than the rest of the group. I wrote it off as a possible bug or an issue with DPS calculation. The low numbers made sense to me because shadow is neither my main spec (I suck at it) and my gear isn't exactly optimal for it.

    But we've been noticing that the same thing seems to happen with a frost mage. His DPS is high, but damage done falls well below even the tank. He's a competent player, and neither his gear nor spec suck to my knowledge, certainly not to the degree the Recount seems to report. I've never noticed such a discrepancy in ordering before this, usually high DPS ends up high on damage done. Is it some quirk in DPS calculation? Or a bug? Or am I just missing something stupid? I'm trying to figure out which stat is more accurate, or if they're both busted in these situations.

    I noticed this yesterday. I didn't know if it was real or another ad hijacking their site. It's pretty funny. I used to like the site there but their recent behavior regarding infections on their downloads must have burned them one too many times now.

    It's part of the Blizzard addons tab, so I don't think it uses the Ace3 slider widget. Barring making the slider a whole lot more sensitive, a slash command would be great. Anything where I can adjust and align size and position to the pixel.

    I just wanted to point out that this isn't entirely true, especially from a shaman viewpoint. Check out the tooltips on your totem spells... they're still not all raid-wide.

    Groups are still very important to priests too, until / unless they change PoH to be smart or something.

    Am I missing something? I have a bar below my action bars. I'm trying to change it's width to be exactly the same as my action bars, however the slider's granularity leaves much to be desired. Is there some place to type in then number?
