he said, blizzard already said they are adding a basic threat meterhe NEVER said it was for 2.4blizzard itself says it may add it in some futur patch or wrath itself. it's true, you can check that on the us forum.but Silverslide, so, think it's one of the reasons blizzard improves the log combat in 2.4 ("hence the combat log changes in 2.4")to pave the way of a basic lagmeter in future.here is , what Silverslide said for everybody to read.

What the fcsk is everyone on about? It's like I'm in some sort of strange StarTrek alternative universe episode where I can read the words but can't understand the meaning.The raid encounters are designed to be beatable with the standard UI. The mod API is just there for you to help you. Remember the pre-2.0 healing mods (yes, before TBC)? Passive targeting? Automatic downranking etc. They nerfed it because they thought it was too close to cheating. I'm fairly sure they'll nerf the API again if they think addons are getting too powerful. They're nice help, but don't get too dependent on them, the functions you can't play without could be gone in next patch.And it wouldn't be the first time they're trying to kill addons by adding the function in the game-proper. They added scrolling combat text (though made a real hash out of it and sct is still much better) and they added new maibox functions (which pretty much killed CT_MailMod and the like for me).They're not playing "catch up" with the gameplay. They DESIGN the freaking gameplay. They just add features that seem like a good idea and bring added value to the *whole* playerbase. We - the elite who read sites like WoWInsider, install addons and do instances and stuff - sometimes forget the fact that we're actually in the minority. The big masses who play this game don't have any clue addons even exist.Also, Adam, way to go inserting that "Say you're fighting something we've all done" flamebait in the article. Really pro of you.And finally if we didn't have the bossmods, we'd have someone with a stopwatch next to their computer shouting "whirlwind coming in 5..4..3..2..1" on TeamSpeak/Vent. We're just lazy because popping in a mod is so easy and convenient. Duhh.
