note: this addon will improve depending on how much they will allow the combat log to show and how it is show considering that it draw's all it's information from these logs, the timers are however balanced around lvl 60 so you might see some debuff's differ with 0.5-3 seconds at most since the names of debuffs in bwl especially are the same but duration is not always, but 99% of your fight's it will be accurate :).

4: Startup "World of Warcraft"
5: open addon's menu in the left corner
6: in the upper right corner of the menu change the number written after "Script Memory(MB)" to 999 this will increase the amount of Ram wow can use and allow you to use even more addons if you should want to.
7: login and place the minimap icon's so they aren't piling up on 1-2 spots.


---Note:
As one who fixes/makes addons i would strongly recommend using this package on Kronos, i test on many servers but Kronos is currently the only server where the whole crew cares about the quality, using these addons on servers like Feenix, Nos or even the upcoming CC for 2017 won't work as well as it does on Kronos considering their staff internally declared when i asked them as a tester that they wont be fixing what normal players wont notice especially since normal players cannot tell if the reason is their client or server. Kronos however said yes to fix "everything" which is also why they have such an open bug tracer and why many 1.12.1 addons that won't work elsewhere usually work here. I don't know what attracts you to a server but personally i desire the highest quality there is and knowing the staff here i know that it wont only be a high quality release compared to what we know but it will stay that way since they are dedicated to continue fixing even after the release where most other servers start to reduce or completely stop fixing.


So keep this in mind if should you consider using this package on other servers.

Re: Recommended

well it won't be that long, at the moment i am simply documenting and judging which addons to include or let wait until v.2.

note: Joana's Guide Atlas Suite won't make it into the recommended as DoctorBeefy/Gurky is still working on it but it will be included in v.2

update: i have now uploaded the package. enjoy :wink:

Re: Recommended

Would be nice to see a screenshot of the entire thing as a brief overview of what the UI might look like.
EDIT: Thanks for all your effort putting together a recommended list :)

Re: Recommended

Re: Recommended

:smile: i hope you enjoy it since the more who use it the more usefull it becomes especially addons like the lookingforgroup "CallToArms" which makes it a lot easier to search for groups but also search for members showing what you have and what you need.

Re: Recommended

The name plates for friendly players don't list subtitle (e.g. "Rogue trainer" and so on), so I find them a bit useless for friendly players.


My personal preferences for replacements/additions:
*VanillaHelper instead of Questie
*LunaUnitFrames instead of default
*Prat chat addon
*Tinytip tooltip addon anchored to mouse, with offsets x=130, y=-100.
*oCB casting bar
*Remove mobinfo 2, just bloats tooltips

Edit:
*Wowhead DB (whdb), adds wowhead POI options and wowhead comments to quests.

Re: Recommended

*i am going to test vanillahelper and see which one does the best job
*i am not going to add luna as this is a recommended package to be used by all and not everyone likes the luna design.
*no need for prat when copycat can do the same without having to change the look of the chat.
*i will take a look at oCB.
*mobinfo2 can be altered to not bloat the tooltip as you describe it but i will do so once i have more free time on my hands.

Re: Recommended

NECB might seem buggy at the moment due to the fact that it is missing a file which will be present in the update tomorrow 1.1 followed by other addition's and improvements
