New Addon's & UI's

Galo has been back in Outland and just resting up since getting the new Epic Mount. So haven't been up to much. I'm in no hurry to get to 70 other than daily progression. However been a bit preoccupied at looking at some new Addon's or UI mods usefull for Outland.

Been discovering the world of Addons, mods, UI's and so been looking around at some sites and some Addons that could and would be use full and found a few. So mostly been getting acquainted with installing and loading UI and see how they look, work and such and messing around. So taking awhile and a bit getting used to.

Well, you certainly need a UI mod for your bars and such. I use Bongos myself, allthough many use Titan. A map addon is certainly helpful.

Of course, there is Auctioneer. (there's a new version out).

I've been looking into buffing and cleasing addons, Decursive sounds good (haven't tried it yet) and perhaps CTraid for when you are in raids. (I'll bow to the knowledge of other visitors with more experience with these).

Perhaps one of the most helpful is Outfitter, which sadly isn't supported anymore. Is there an alternative?.. This one helps you instantly switch gear sets, a critical need for pallys.

There's a continued and 2.1 updated version of Outfitter (most useful mod ever, I swear): http://wow-en.curse-gaming.com/downloads/details/7446/

For buffing I use Pally Power: http://wow-en.curse-gaming.com/downloads/details/3738/

Hmm Decursive...haven't actually used it since the UI nerf in 2.0. Been using SmartDebuff for cleansing:

Appreciate the recommendations. Some of those i've actually loked at also. First been just looking for a DMG meter and Threat meter and a few things useful information wise. Information is good if its usable to my benefit tactically.

However seem i'm expanding and looking at more stuff that can be as valuable to use. Titan i loaded and i read and found i like Fubar much better. It just fits better with my Mac wide screen. I loaded KTM meter and Cartographer. I have some Ace addon's i'm playing with. Auctioneer i found usefull. I'm playing with Bartender 3. A few more also i have and looking at. I then have to figure out how to set them up properly then. Will see.

Outfitter does seem to be working, but it sounds like the Dev wants to get away from it, hopefully someone else will pick up where he left off.

There are enough good bar managers out there it's hard to pick.

As a side note (since you're a Mac user), I was finally able to get TeamSpeax (beta third part client for Teamspeak) working, so I can finally hear my guildies. Never found a Vent server that supported the Mac Vent client.

Tease!

What's the big idea says "I'm looking into addons" and then not listing which ones. PFFT!

- Auctioneer/Enchantrix (now in alpha) is indispensible for me. Enchantrix is how I make money
- CTBars/Cogsbar for button management
- Cartographer (and cartographer quest/quest objectives)for maps and tracking quest pickup/turn in. (it shows your note-points on the mini-map)
- Pallypower to manage blessings
- Grid/Clique to decurse/heal
- Outfitter to manage outfits (normal, mounted, healing, fire resist...)
- EquipCompare to compare loot to current item (much quicker on the need/greed rolls)
- TBag to see my bags/bank/alt's bags/bank.

Purely data:
- MetaHUD to keep health/mana in the middle of the screen
- Dr. Damage puts the max damage amount on the button for each spell "Theorycraft for lazy casters" (easy to see most damaging spell) also adds more info to the tool tip.
- Ratings Buster changes "+15 spell damage" to show actual points added per spell.. or actual +% to dodge, etc. Great for evaluating item 1 vs item 2.
- KTM to see threat
- PriceEach shows price per item on stack of items in AH (helps to get the best price)
- MobInfo-2 Shows details about mobs you kill. Most useful Kills To Level (KTL).

Purely fluff:
- Closeup (allows you to zoom in when you CTRL-click on an item and see what it looks like up close)

Been Working all weekend so haven't had much focus time to play with loading or getting some the Addon's to Work properly as yet. So thinkering around a bit.

Haven't tried Outfitter as yet, but will download it. Will make a list of what i loaded on when i have them somewhat working or customized the interface look.
