Updating my Addons

Post by Skraggy » Thu Feb 07, 2008 3:44 pm

Pre-BC I used flexbar and CastParty as my main 2 addons for gui modifications. Post-BC I was using ct bars (but didn't like it as much) and Clique.

What's the best things these days to use? I like the ability to put buttons anywhere, so I may go to flexbar2, but is there something else I should look at? And the only thing I need a program like Clique, or CastParty to do is allow me to assign spells (primarily heals) to player frames.

Bongos 2 is the best mod I've found for absolute control over every button and button bar.

I don't use any 1-click casting mods so I can't help you there, but I think Clique still works.

Outfitter is the new gold standard for managing multiple sets of gear, and there are two main options for info bars (Titan Panel is still the one I use, there's another that's as or more popular as well but the name escapes me and my new work firewall prevents me from looking too hard).

CT_RaidAssist is still a good idea (or at least I think so, though I admit most of it's best features have been built in to the UI and so I need it for fewer and fewer things), and of course Deadly Boss Mods and Omen are almost required for raiding.

The last thing you may want is a unit frame customizer - I use AG Unit Frames, lots of others use xPerl.

Hope this helps.

Trinity2 is pretty darn flexible as far as bar mods go and it's what I use. Bartender is ok, just doesn't look as good.

I really like bongos also but when i was using it in a party the roll window wouldn't show, so i couldn't ever roll on anything :(

I'm using Bartender 3 now and I love it. I've used CT and Bongos in the past and they were fine, but I'm really happy with Bartender.

I use the Led Mirage compilation which includes Bartender, Zek X Perl Frames and a number of other handy add ons like Omen, BigWigs/LittleWigs.

It's not too shabby.

OK, so Skraggy messages me the other day asking what the current WoW patch is, and now this? Should we be on the lookout for The Return of the Skraggster?

Chatmod is indispensible imo. Also I like Atlas Loot Enhanced. :D

I used to use chatmod, but it wasn't really updated for a while... switched to prat.

I like bartender, and there's also a raidframe mod I use on my priest, it assigns spells to mouse buttons, and when you press that mouse button over that player frame, it casts that specific spell. It's called sRaidframes or something. I think that's what you were looking for ?

edit: it's not sraidframes, it's healbot, my bad.

And now back to chatmod, it's far simpler and actually got an update! :)

Just thought I'd follow up on this...

Ended up with X-Perl, bartender 3, prat 2 (which I had been using before), and healbot.

Seems to be working well, although I've done little more than kill trash mobs. Now to get back to actually doing quests...
