    There seems to be a memory leak in BigWigs Ace2. I am using version R9465

    You might want to get the latest version and try that out.
    http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=5086 has r10921 or you can get r10922 off the svn.

    There's an Ace2 version of SW Stats?!

    I am interested in this as well.

    Actually, I've been thinking about it lately... everyone keeps wanting some sort of means to verify that raidwarns are being sent for the "peons" to see... so maybe we need some sort of solution here?

    How bout we add a detector to the raidwarn module... it'd add info into the fubar tooltip that shows what members are sending raidwarns if it detects any, and have an optional user-side alert to let you know if noone is sending any warnings during a boss fight. Something simple, like say we schedule a "no announcers" warning in 5 seconds every time a local message is shown. Whenever someone sends a raidwarn they also send a comm sync indicating that they're announcing. If you get one of these syncs the timer is cancelled... at least for the current boss fight.

    That would be super, Tekkub. The optional alert for no announcers would be wonderful, then I could just leave all of BossBlock on and blissfully go about my business.

    Hehe I just converted a bunch of our officers to BigWigs recently and had 2 of them ask me how to find their minimap button. I guess it must have been behind another button or something like you said, I told them to try doing /bigwigs minimapAttach because I thought they literally meant the button disappeared but they said that every time they typed that it just kept saying "Off"... I use FuBar so I have no clue what they are actually seeing. :) I'll have to let them know to look behind their other buttons... I didn't think of that last night. :)

    For a number of our members BigWigs was under their ItemRack minimap button. ItemRack has an extra large button already, so it easily hide the entire BigWigs button. Having them drag the ItemRack button a bit solved most of the problems.

    Also, another member reported that his BigWigs minimap button just did not exist while he had the CT_MapMod enabled. He ended up going through every addon, enabling them one at time with BigWigs until he found this. He just disabled CT_MadMod and the button showed up. You could ask your guild members about this as well. I'm sorry I don't know more about this.

    Well if you can't easily fix the borked hooks for the Rez Monitor, it's not a big deal, Ammo.


    Feature Request:

    Options to auto set loot type when forming a raid.

    BossBlock is meant to be on by default, why do they want to see raidwarn messages? That's duplicate spam there...

    Because they're nubs, honestly. Had to just start removing raid promotions in Naxx last night to reduce the raid chat spam during bosses. I don't get how half of the people can't find their BigWigs button (it must be under another minimap button for some users or something, stop using Titan Panel you fools!). Anyways, this stuff isn't the developer's fault, I've just found that a number of end users are pretty dumb.

    I leave BossBlock off except for blocking the RaidWarning frame so that I can make sure RaidAnnounce is being done by someone. If I see that it isn't, I quickly turn my announce on. How about that instead? BossBlock on except for the RaidWarning frame in middle of the screen blocking.

    If not, no big deal. I made a whisper macro explaining things for the smacktards who can't figure out how to use BigWigs.

    Feature Request:

    I'd like to see BigWigs come with BossBlock not enabled by default. I've slowly been getting everyone to convert to BigWigs, but I have had to explain to literally each person that converts how to disable the BossBlock plugin. This has also lead to a number of these new users assuming that because they are not seeing RaidWarnings they need to turn on the RaidAnnounce portion of the addon. In turn, this has lead to a lot of spam on Bosses for the non-BigWig users.

    Again, these are all user errors. Although, I do think that if BossBlock was not enabled by default, most problems of this type would not be encountered.

    Thank you for the great tool, guys.

    oRA2 has been working great Ammo. Thanks for all the excellent work.

    Could the Resurrection monitor show which target you are currently rezzing in addition to who everyone else is rezzing.

    posted a message on Clique 0.2.0-Beta Released
    Is this the best spot to report bugs for you? Could post this on wowi instead, if you'd prefer.


    Bug with revision 10801.

    With a level 8 Priest, setting Renew (Rank 1) and Power Word: Shield (Rank 1) to Max causes them to not work. If left them at Rank 1 they will function.

    Did not see this behavior with Lesser Heal (Rank 2) set to Max, although I did not test it when I only had Rank 1.
    Also did not see this happen with Power Word: Fortitude (Rank 1) set to Max.

    Shadow Word: Pain (Rank 1) would work at Max, although it would only cast in Rank 1 and Max form if the click casting was performed on another frame besides the target frame. This could possibly be an issue with WatchDog, though.

    By the way, you do not need a separate BossBlock addon anymore. It's built into BigWigs now. Just delete the BossBlock folder.

    Quote from Nevcairiel »

    maia the SpellCache-1.0 external is broken, since it was moved in the svn.

    Please fix :)

    Having same trouble. Good to know it's not just me.

    What I said over here:
    While pulling Detox from the SVN, it's looking for SpellCache-1.0 at this location: http://svn.wowace.com/root/trunk/SpellCache-1.0/SpellCache-1.0.lua

    SpellCache-1.0 is actually at: http://svn.wowace.com/root/trunk/SpellCacheLib/SpellCache-1.0/SpellCache-1.0.lua

    I'm honestly not smart enough to get this TortoiseSVN client pointed at the correct location. I ended up just grabbing the file through a web browser and creating the directory structure that the Detox .toc file specified.

    If this is something that I can correct on my end, please point me in the right direction. Detox is the only SVNed mod I've encountered this problem with and it just started today.

    posted a message on Horde Razorgore strategy, please help.
    If you can't do a straight corner DPS and you are having trouble keeping the kiting up, try this combination:


    We use a Hunter controller so that they can Feign Death if the MC orb channeling is broken from damage (which can happen if a mage gets free or if legionnaires are kited too close to the controller). Basically if the MC channeling breaks, and Razorgore is coming at them, they feign then pick him up again.

    In the beginning, you very slowly get spawns. The raid is split into 4 parts and are in each corner. We use this slow period to kill any mages and legionnaires that spawn.

    Hunters pick up dragons and kite them. Get everyone to kite in the same direction. Druids spam sleep on a dragon and Warlocks keep one feared. Until they are needed to do, though, they are in a corner killing adds.

    As soon as you start to lose controller of the corner killing - which from your DPS comment sounds likely - you switch to kiting. Warriors take any legionnaires that weren't yet dead and start pulling them around the room. Again, get everyone to kite the same direction and try to not stand near legionnaires so that the cleave can be avoided. We do use Shamans with Earthbind totems to help with the legionnaire kiting, although piercing howl works well too.

    Rogues, Mages, and Warlocks who aren't currently fearing a target are still in their assigned corner killing enemy mages as they spawn. If your Druids and Shaman can heal without dying from the mobs that haven't been picked up yet, let them heal. We found that Priests can handle this task much better, though, with Fade and even Scream. Whatever works for you.

    When there's only a couple eggs left. Like 3 or 4. We start mass fearing the adds, using Frost Nova to keep them from running around, etc. Using Razorgore's Fireball Volley ability is not that good of an idea, because if he gets enough mobs on him, he will quickly die. You can use it for kicks at the very end though, it will pick up stray mobs.

    Last egg down, Main and Off Tank are running to Razorgore. Hunter feigns. Tanks pick him up. One tank at head, other tank at butt. Razorgore must be pointing away from the raid at all times. If your melee DPS is smart enough to never get conflagged, let them go in when Razorgore flips back and forth between the two tanks once or twice. If they aren't smart enough, keep them back. If a bunch of people get conflagged at once, it can easily kill the off tank from aoe damage.

    Thanks again.

    This'll do fine for the Renew timer. I added the 8/8 Trans HoT to mine (well the first application of it, doesn't pick up re-applications) if anyone else wants to add it to theirs: http://www.wowace.com/forums/index.php/topic,440.msg40153.html#msg40153

    I'll download AceTimer and Timex again. It still does require Timex, right?

    Do any of you have a good suggestion for a HoT timer? NECB is nice, but has way more than what I need. Just looking for something that will show the time left on my Renew and possibly the 8/8 Trans Renew.
