well don't be so overjoyed. I think it's crippled, to be frank. Simple things - like a one-button bag for those of use who use unified bag mods - are missing. The interface is clunky. It's not extensible that I could find. Top to bottom, it's out of my Interface folder. I went with BT4. It does things much cleaner then Dominoes.

At first Dominos seemed a little weak, but once I took a bit of time to understand it I found it's not much different from Bongos2 (my favorite). There are still some changes I'd like to see made though.

@SaintStryfeWhy don't you just bind your bags to a key? I use (the mostly resurrected) Engbags and have B bound to Bags, with Shift+B for showing my Bank. If I decide I feel like opening my bag by mouse, I just click on BagFu, which is mostly just to show me when I'm running out of bag space.Personally, I tried Bartender3, but found Dominos to be easier to set up the way I wanted it "right out of the box" and I had never used a bar mod previously.

I loved bongos2 and never switched to 3. Dominos handles what I needed from a bar addon perfectly.

pretty sure dominos can be configured to use the one bag button still, can't remember off the top of my head how I did it though. I definitely miss the simple press alt + click then drag your mouse to create bars configuration of bongos though, the new system just seems very clunky, especially when you have to configure it for several machines and different characters (for which you might not use the same bar setup).Despite all that, it's still to me better than the main alternative, bartender4. Yet to try macaroon, but being on the race to 70 with my two characters before WotLK I really can't waste any more time relearning bar mods =/

@SaintStryfe: You must not have looked very hard for the one-bag button; you merely need to edit the bag bar by a rightclick and the very first option is to set it that way. I'm not sure what you mean by it not being extensible, as it allows pretty complete customization of all your bars just as Bongos did, with a smaller memory footprint. As for the interface being clunky, it's more streamlined than Bongos' was, and frankly I thought Bongos' interface was fine.

jbodar: Reasonable question. The basic reason is that due to injury, reaching around a keyboard is very hard for me. Being an ENH shaman, my rotation is pretty simple, so for fighting, I key my basic abilities to my mouse, and for lesser used abilities, I have action bars and macros. I don't attempt to have everything key bound because I just can't use it. And personally, I don't like TitanPanel or Fubar eating up screen real estate. Personally "right out of the box" is annoying. I want to configure it to my wishes. If wanted out of the box, I'd actually PLAY my 360 rather then using it as a Worms/soon-to-be Netflix box.

Fair enough.I've not had any issues setting Dominos the way I want it. Mostly, it looked the way I want it from the start, and I made a few enhancements. Just 3 bars stacked at the bottom of the screen. Stance/aura bar stacks on top, pet bar to the left, along with my mostly-hidden bar that has my mount keybinds and food/water. I just set the default as a sort of template, and make a separate profile for each character.Do you have a complicated setup? I'm curious...
