Addon for tracking specific boss ability

Postby Ironshield » Mon Apr 29, 2013 2:45 am

Can anyone recommend a good addon for tracking specific boss abilities cast and /or cooldown? I now DBM will do some CD tracking but sometimes I'd like to track one CD more prominently, eg triple puncture, and maybe move just that bar, AFAIK I cant tweak DBM to that level. Also I'd like to be able to get a cast bar for something like Snapping Bite that I can put in the middle of my screen, I'm trying out Gnosis for this but it's a bit clunky and unintuitive. Any recommendations that I should try out?

Basically this is all about timing ShotR (and maybe interrupts) without having to look in 5 different places while also watching my feet etc...

i use bigwigs, for most boss abilities it allows you to "highlight" spezific spells where you get a special raidwarning or in case of triple puncture a voice counts down from 5 , this normaly gives you enough time to pool hp for sotr, but you sometimes have to take a look onto the swipe ability as this seems more priority than triplepuncture so if both comes on the same time he will do swipe and shortly after the triple punct.

I find BigWigs a little better than DBM, still can't move just one bar afaik but can emphasise any timer bar you want so it'll do an audio count down.
I use Gnosis for cast bars and often make custom white lists for stuff that needs interrupting.

As for stuff like snapping bite where I won't always be targeting the boss when he casts it, I've made myself a Weak Aura that flashes up a big red icon and makes a punch sound at the start of the cast.

If you don't use Weak Auras yet give it a try, I find it by far the most versatile and useful addon I've ever had.
