I tried this on our Kalecgos kill last night... wow, it really helps!
It's actually pretty fun now, watching the little timers on the boxes and clicking them when they turn red...

Maybe you should ask the author of your decursing addon, which you are refering to.
For Grid, you could show an debuff icon on top of the name, color the border or something
completely different to make it easier for you to know which players are debuffed.
Adding range scan and click2cast to that and you will never need anything else.
For every OTHER fight, not Kalecgos.
If you decurse anyone whenever they get the debuff, you might as well just go afk for the rest of the fight, because that's about how useful you'll be...
You need to let someone get the curse, let it sit there for a few seconds, and then remove it...
Problem is, the only way to know how long someone has had the curse is either to count how long it's been on them, or use a seperate mod with bars.
Counting is pretty much impossible once there's more than a handful of curses bouncing around, and bar mods require constantly shifting thought from one display to the other. The mod I'm asking for (and it seems someone else has already had the same idea on this forum) will put both the timer for duration left on the debuff and the button to decurse them on the same display
Apr 9, 2008You could also turn off names above mobs.Posted in: Addon Ideas
Your target's name appears even if you have names turned off, so you can just search for the thing with a name over its head.
It's not perfect, I know, but it's the best I could think of aside from what's been said.
Apr 8, 2008I know you can just make a normal macro for that stuff (/cast spell, /equip relic), so if whatever casting mod you have supports macros, you can just do something like that.Posted in: Addon Ideas
Don't know of any mods that do the same thing, though, sorry.

No you can't click a bar to cast something that's not possible since 2.0
I suggest you move your bars closer to your decursing tool :P
Hm... I believe you misunderstood my idea...
See, you think I want decurse functions added to timer bars. What I really want, however, is timer functions added to decurse boxes. Should make things easier, since I can just stare at one thing instead of looking at the decurse timers to see the name of the person you have to decurse, then look at Grid (or another mod) and find that person.

No, this is not possible. I suggest you set up grid to show the debuff.
You can't make it possible to click the timer bars to cast a decurse, yes?
Would it be possible to do it the other way around? What I mean is, you have a spot where you normally click to decurse someone with the debuff, right? Could you make a timer that appears right where you click to decurse?
Apr 7, 2008Is there any way you can set it up where you can click right on the curse timer to decurse someone? Right now the only way to decurse someone at the right time is see their name on the boss mod and then find that person's box on Grid or Decursive.Posted in: Raid AddOns
Something that makes a Decursive-like layout for decurse targets and puts a timer right on the decurse buttons would be helpful... no more searching for the right name, you can click right on the timer itself.
Apr 6, 2008I've come up with a pretty simple mod idea for helping with curses on Kalecgos.Posted in: Addon Ideas
Basically, the tricky part is knowing when to decurse each person and then actually casting the spell. Right now Bigwigs and DBM have meters showing how long each person's had the curse, and Grid and Clique (or Decursive) will let you remove the curse... but it takes some time to figure out what button to click to get rid of the curse on Bob when he's had it for 20 seconds, and not remove it from Joe three seconds after he gets it. It's frustrating, really.
The mod I came up with is pretty simple. It would work just like Decursive, only it would have some indicator right on the decurse buttons of how long each person has had the curse. No more matching names to buttons, basically.
Should be pretty simple to program, I imagine. Something as easy as a timer on Decursive that pops up when someone gets the curse and keeps counting until they don't have it any more. But I've looked everywhere for a mod that does this, and I've yet to find anything.
Nov 16, 2007Kind of an odd question, but...Posted in: Raid AddOns
Were the timers for Kael phase 2 changed at all? I seem to remember it being 2 minutes before phase 3 starts, but now it's 1:30 from phase 2 start to phase 3 start.
Am I just going crazy, or was there really a change to how long phase 2 lasts?
