Intro: This is a mod I created for myself. I hated looking all over the screen for multiple information (Disease Duration, Desolation Buff, GCD timer, runic power, runes, etc.) So I developed this addon to have all the information in one place. I then noticed there was a sort of similar addon called clcret that helps ret and prot pallies with their rotation. I decided to sort of borrow the idea and have priority box that suggests a move for you.
Features: (See pictures at sides for a better idea)
Runes: The Rune cool-down is an borrowed idea from some ideas that popped up on EJ awhile back.
- = rune is off cool-down.
X = on full cool-down.
number =how many seconds is left on the rune.
Runic Power: Self Explanatory.
Frost Fever and Blood Plague Durations: Self Explanatory.
What the Priority is, and is not:
-Rotation support for all three specs
-Also has a Early Level Rotation
-This is intended for Single Target Boss Fights
-This is only a base rotation, sort of a starting point. There is allot more that goes into a rotation, and I suggest you read up on that. Wither it be on EJ or some other theory-crafting page.
-There is going to be some situations where your own judgment is going to be better (Pestilence, refreshing disease before you run out, etc.).
-That being said, I have put allot of work into optimizing the rotation to be as optimal as possible.
-There are eight cool-downs you can customize
-You can hide each set of two (right set, left set, far right set, far left set)
-These include all DK cooldowns, as well as important buffs and procs (such as Killing Machine, Sudden Doom etc.)
Normal - which shows the frame only in combat or while targeting an enemy.
Show - which will always show the frame.
Hide - which will always hide the frame.
-Can hide any aspect you do not want in the addon
-Can move any aspect of the addon to any part of the screen you want.
Button Facade Support
-While running it is at about 220 kb in memory. I like to keep my addons very simple and to the point.
Q: Can you make the priority icon clickible or bind it to a hotkey?
A: No, it is impossible to do with the changes blizzard made back in BC.
Q: Diseases don't seem to be tracked in the priority, whats up?
A: Check the options (/clcdk) and look under "Disease Options" and make sure its set to what you want.
Q: Does it work for tanking?
A: Yes and no. While it shows you a basic single target rotation, it will not show you when to use cooldowns, or when to use more aoe threat moves, again like DPS priority, its a starting point, not a scripture.
Q: I want you to add something to the rotation.
A: For the most part, rotations are pretty much set in stone based on the best single target rotation. Most stuff I will NOT add for multiple reasons, mainly that most moves are extremely situational and you should really learn when to use them. If the addition makes sense and is decent utility, I may add it. I'm still throwing some things up in the air on this topic.
Q: I have a CD or Buff that isn't being tracked.
A: Tell me what it is and I will add it. I have tried my best to add all cooldowns, but I might miss a few (especially ones in specs I don't play that often).
Q: I think I have found a bug, what do I do?
A: Leave a comment or send me a private message with as much information as you can. Just saying that there is a problem does not help me at all. Send me screenshots, which version it started happening in?, is it only one spec?, etc.
Q: Why is there a rotation? Deathknight rotation is easy enough.
A: The entire intention of the rotation is for new deathknights to learn the rotation easily, and know what moves to do in different situations. There is much much more into a rotation, and if you know of these things, you should hide the rotation by changing the icon to something different. (/clcdk -> Cooldown Options -> Priority Dropdown)
Contact: -Any suggestions on how to improve the addon or any bugs, please leave a comment and I should respond in a few days.
