Addon: Ratings Buster

I started out wanting to discuss just Ratings Buster.. but I see from my screenshot, you’re actually getting a five-for-one-here. The screenshot is showing Equipcompare (the tooltips side-by-side), TankPoints (comparing this item to the worn item in terms of tanking), HealPoints (compare this item to the worn item in terms of healing), AuctioneerAdvanced (the vendor prices) AND Ratings Buster. Equipcompare…

Addon: Jim’s Cooldown Pulse

On Mynt’s suggestion I went ahead and downloaded/installed Jim’s Cooldown Pulse. When an ability’s cooldown ends, Jim’s Cooldown Pulse shows the icon for that ability at a position/size on the screen that you’ve specified. It also plays a heartbeat sound to draw your attention. This allows you to keep your eyes in the center of the screen instead of staring…

I talked with her, gave her our information (server/ventrillo) and suggested she log on with us for a while. I also sent her my short description of the game and the classes. She logged in last night…

How I Heal, Grid+Clique

A couple of guildies recently respec’d to heal and were asking about my addons (queen of addons here). Here’s what I wrote up for them. I use GRID to heal. I love love love grid+clique. I’m pretty sure I’d have to give up healing if I didn’t have grid+clique. [Edited to add: NEW VIDEO! I’ve created a complimentary video showing…
