I like how the article just says "oh you, or your mod site, may not have updated xperl since wrath".. honestly it wouldn't work at all right now if you, or the site, didn't.. I guess you can't come to WoWinsider for much more then suggestions on which mods to use and not really how to use them. for one thing, and this isnt a plug because i dont have any thing to do with the site other then the fact that its where most of us score our mods, Curse has had the updated xperl, and almost every other major mod people should be using,since their big change. So if you got it from there (and theres no reason you shouldnt have) you should be fine. the problem maybe the options for it you have checked..Xperl has an tab marked target in its option interface. somewhere down the list theres an option that states "use blizzard combo pts" or something similar and the option of where you want them placed on the targets frame. if you have that checked you'll either be seeing blizzards combo dots on the side of the targets portait, they may not be in a place you can see them for some reason or theres a chance you maybe seeing nothing.. for a while i was seeing nothing while doing aces high but recently while fighting malygos i noticed the points were actually there.. either way the vehichical points act exactly like rogue pts in the UI and i highly doubt blizzard ever intended them to act any different, it would be stupid if they would.. any way, if you don't have that box checked xperl will take it upon itself to make those combo points fill up the characters name pane. when you use any abilities that make combo pts on the target you'll see the name of the target fill with extra color in the interface.. fills up to 5 just like the point dots should.. imo its cleaner but can be harder to keep track of so its a trade off.. which might be the problem, he just might not be noticing the extra color fill in the targets name. it took me a few weeks of doing aces high to actually notice the pts being put there.. hope this helps

I do not think you actually read what I wrote, and instead decided to skip it and fill in the blank yourself.

a friend and I have the latest updated version of xperl, this is not the problem. since wrath, i've update xperl 3 times.under target, there was nothing stating combo points at all. there must be something else it's called, because neither of us could find it.the weird thing is, when I'm on my rogue, I get those combo points building up where I can see them. this is why I'm so confused why I can't find the combo points to turn on for my other chracters.we still havent figured this outbut you are right, there was no information here at all that was useful. I mainly post under these sections for a reader to answer back. now seeing that my post got put up here and there is still no direct answer, makes me wonder why someone would even post that question without actually looking into it. kinda de-credits these answers here now in a way
