Mar 15th 2011 8:35AM My first character was a gnome warlock, who sadly never made it past level 48, and eventually got deleted to make room for other characters. When I first started the game, the class seemed really cool, but I never fully got into it, and eventually created a warrior who I liked much better, and became my main and first level capped toon. :D
Feb 22nd 2011 8:27PM Sorry for the double post - it also just hit me that you might be looking for MikScrollingBattle Text, if you're strictly asking about the combat text and nothing else. It's been a while since I've used this, but I'm pretty sure that this will also allow you to change the font associated with combat text.
Feb 22nd 2011 8:24PM There were also a couple of stand-alone addons to do what you're looking for too. Fontain has been my personal favorite so far, though. It's a little hard to figure out when you first start using it, but once you get used to how the config works, it's pretty easy to change just about any of the fonts in the game.
Oct 12th 2010 1:11PM It will still reduce damage taken as a whole. The side effect of this, though, will be that BGs will be pretty chaotic until 85 :P
Oct 1st 2010 10:10AM I had felt this way about Grid initially too...but then I discovered the fantastic modular nature of Grid. GridManabars will allow you to display the mana bars on your grid frames, and adjust them to any size you like.
I did use Vudoh for a while as well, and it can show mana bars as well, though I don't recall off hand exactly how to do that.
It seems like for the most part with Grid, there's a module for just about anything you can want.
I think though that my hopes after having read this, are that the authors of Grid and Vudoh are able to pick up on some of the things from the stock UI, and use them in their addons. It sounds like there's potential for incoming heal status to be a lot more accurate, and even more information to be available (like roles) to addons.
Sep 16th 2010 1:41PM Two questions...
First...a friend and I hopped on the PTR this week, and we've both tried out our tanks. While the high damage is somewhat distressing, what we noticed even more so was that it was extremely difficult to hold threat on multiple targets. Is this a wide spread problem? Does it relate to the way in which Blizz intends to limit AE tanking? or maybe it's just us...
Second...I know a while back I saw something on the site about changing your password for posting, but I can't seem to locate it now...how does one go about doing that?
Sep 15th 2010 8:51AM Right on - it couldn't be said any better than this.
Sadly, we see this same problem in a lot of aspects of this game. GS is a good example. While yes, it's true that certain raids require a minimum gear level, it seems just as silly to measure a player's value to the group soley based on their gearscore as it is to measure a player's maturity by their age only.
Unfortunately, I feel like most people just don't particularly want to invest the time in taking a chance on a younger player to find out if they're mature enough.
I used to be an officer in a guild that would accept anyone and give them a trial period. If within that trial period you could demonstrate maturity and some basic understanding of your class(s), you would then become a full member with raid spot opportunities. I guess with this sort of thing you still need to exercize some caution though. Ultimately things got too lax and that started causing some issues later on.
Sep 14th 2010 11:30AM Many prizes! Now handle it!!
Jun 22nd 2010 2:00PM Yeah, that was how I ended up having it configured previously, but I'd love it if each person that whispered me got their own tab.
In the end, not really a big deal though, just a personal preference thing.
Jun 22nd 2010 9:11AM Oddly, I'm really stoked about the changes to the chat frame. I've been trying to find a way to make it do that since I started playing, but haven't found an addon to do it quite right.
Of course, now I'd like an addon or option to automatically send all whispers to their own tab!
