WeakAura's is an amazing addon, can't wait to use it in classic :)
Very nice one. DBM and WA would be the best choices if you would have to pick only a few addons, regardless of the game iteration.However, this being Classic, I expect comments about how this "taints the true experience" and all the following blabbering really soon.
Bigwigs over DBM in my opinion. I haven't used DBM in years, but the last time I did it required me to spend a large amount of time disabling countless warnings that were just unnecessary, especially the audio ques which are just so excessive to the point of actually hurting your awareness instead of helping.
We have BFA guides to both addons :) If both work for Classic, we'll likely highlight both.
you really dont need DBM for Classic Raids or Dungeons. If you have an active account go in those classic Raids and face tank bosses for a minute and you will see they dont have mechanics to notice. And NO Blizzard didnt nerf those Raids later on.
This will change... EVERYTHING!
I miss CT mod (including CT Raid Assist). I'm guessing, since this is all built on Legion, it won't get recreated (considering the authors are probably long gone).
I simply cannot wait for the %^&*show when people start roflstomping and blame Blizzard for not recreating the authentic vanilla experience while in the same time they’re using tools, created for much more complicated encounters and gameplay. In my opinion WeakAuras is a massive overkill for vanilla encounters, which let’s face it are on the difficulty level of LFR with some minor exceptions. Yet again this will become the standard required by raiding guilds. I’m really not against using addons in Classic, but people should really stick to addons that have been used back then. You cannot take a 1960’s car, install a whole bunch of modern technology in it and call it a classic lol
Amazing.I will be so happy with my shaman watching clearly which earth/fire/water/air totem i'm using and when they decay.
You jumped the gun with that. That build of WeakAuras is very outdated by now. We are still working on ensuring that WeakAuras works well on Classic.
this one add-on has the single highest probability to break classic immersion / it's general difficultybut yeah it was inevitable, so oh well
I love weak auras, my favorite addon in WoW. For classic it will be WAY to powerful, but there is no way to create genuine 2005 experience without actual time machine anyway. I would use it to full extent, can't imaging WoW without it. ElvUI, OmniCC and WA would be like nuclear weapon.
Yes, there is a way, far as I know addons are being banned in other MMOs. You cannot imagine wow without those tools, other people cannot imagine it without xmog for instance, should Blizz allow it?
I recall Weakauras, from when i tinkered around with the LUA-scripting.I can safely say, that despite several years of coding experience - for me, personally -i found that it kinda intruded on my boundary of "This is a game i play for fun" - contrastingwith the - "I spent 300 hours building X thing for Y game".Don't get me wrong - Weakauras is really neat, and can pull off some pretty snazzy graphics,like pretty useful stuff.But, personally - I'll probably go with a lineup of:LazypigRecount (or Skada, case in point Recount is not compatible)Some bag sorting addonMaybe some Disenchant Data broker in terms of ValuesProbably some AH scanner addonDoubt i'll do questie or Co-Ordinates - I plan to keep the quests kind of obscureand a bit of a hassle to do.I might go with a Swing timer - I mean, depends on if Hemo resets Swing timer, i suppose.Maybe a swing timer for enemies, to maximize uptime of bandages?Oh yeah, a threat meter too - so kinda like KTM or something.If i really want to push the envelope - maybe i'll opt for some large scaled Graph plotintegration of raid DPS - but, truth be told - I never really cared much for parses and logs.Maybe out of a personal perspective, on my own character and maximizing contribution -But just for the sake of it? Probably not.Other than that - we'll see. Doubt i'll rely too heavily on addons, outside of the fundamentalcore that i wish to keep intact.
Funny people want this addon but they want the Vanilla experience! What a joke.
Having the WA in Classic just makes me wanna play it even more <3
