NOTF: Power Auras Fan Update

Quick note. Power Auras has had a fan update. If you use the addon Power Auras.. and have issues where you need an aura to be active only in ONE of your specs, this update is for you. I’m finding it hugely useful on my pally (holy/prot) and on my ‘lock (affliction/hybrid:felguard emberstorm) just to watch the procs that are…

Addon: Pawn

Pawn is an in-game addon that helps you to evaluate gear to determine which piece is better. The addon allows you to assign points to different stats and then tells you how many points a certain piece of gear is worth according to your point scale. In theory, if you have two pieces of gear, the one with the most…

More Power Auras

I’ve mentioned it before.. but I -love- Power Auras. Here’s a quick set of auras. When I’m in a raid I can easily end up with 3+ rows of buffs. I hate having to spend a long time figuring out which buffs I’m missing by scanning all these buffs. So I setup 4 new auras. If I’m in a raid,…

[Edited to add: an update to this has been posted here: “Button Button who’s got the Button“] I’ve had my Nostromo N52 for almost two years.

Metahud update

I’m not willing to upload this to something like Curse until I get that fixed.. but it’s moving along. If you use it and you spot bugs, please report them to me. Thanks. Changelog: 2008-12-04 metahud30000-2 – Fixed bug…

Summon Random Non-Combat Pet

/run CallCompanion(“CRITTER”, random(GetNumCompanions(“CRITTER”) ) ) I didn’t write it. Sometimes good information actually -does- come from the official forums. See the official forum post for more information about “random mounts” (ie, the answer is long.. they said it well.. and i’m not going to repeat it.. except to say that the addon “livestock” looks like a very good solution).

At a glance

Here’s what my raid frames (Grid) tells me at a glance (image is about 2x nomal size. click to see the full screenshot): That which grid does by default: – The boxes are colored by class. So at a glance I know there are 3 hunters.. and I wonder why there’s only two hunter pets up. (Kupl is Lilac the…

Addon: Mendeleev

This is another addon that I think should be built into the default UI. It’s not quite Tier 1 (I can’t live without it) but it definitely falls into Tier 2 (Life is way easier with this). Mendeleev (named for the inventor of the periodic table)(which is interesting.. but makes the name hard to remember as I don’t see how…
