The author has already researched the most popular and effective rotation for your character. Allowance has been made for the Talents you have chosen. We Don't Wipe presents the next few abilities you should use. Due to randomness in the game, the queue of abilities will constantly change depending upon cooldowns, critical strike "procs", useful combinations, and so on.
We Don't Wipe is perfect for anyone wishing to come to grips with the latest thinking for the mechanics of a class/specialisation. Perfect for beginners through to raiders. SimCraft style complicated rotations have so far not been included.
A queue stretching from left to right across your screen. Pinwheel and numeric cooldowns for these are displayed. If a character has an important "charge up" ability, such as Maelstrom Weapon, Lightning Shield or Arcane Charge, then it will be displayed in a dynamic, animated manner. The number of icons, size of icons and screen placement are fully customisable.
A series of mini-icons are presented. The first three (not illustrated in the screenshots) are warnings that the target has an interruptable spell, the target has a buff able to be dispelled, the player or friendly target has a debuff able to be dispelled.
The remaining mini-icons are your cooldowns. You can configure this list while playing, using the built in editor. It is powerful and intuitive. Racials like Berserker are supported.
How to Instal
Install as you would any other addon. Go to "Interface" and then "Addons" from the game menu to adjust to your liking. Look at the addon file headers where there is lots of descriptive text if you want to get down and dirty. Try also /wdw from any in game chat channel.
How to Move WDW
Firstly go to "Game Menu" then "Interface" then "AddOns". For We Don't Wipe look at "Queue Settings". Ensure "Locked" is not checked. Return to the game. Hover the mouse over the centre of the first ability icon in the main queue. Must be in the centre area. Now hold down the left mouse button and drag and release. Easy!
Your Rotation Queue & Your Cooldown Icons - Adjusting their Synergy
Monitoring your cooldowns is an important part of any fight and it is important for your cooldowns to be integrated into your rotation during a boss fight but conversely really annoying to have a rotation cluttered unnecessarily while clearing trash and questing. Here's how to adjust the synergy:
Hover your mouse over any mini-icon OR the last icon of the queue. Moving the mouse-wheel results in toggling the cooldown display mode between: (1) BOSS - show the cooldowns as a fixed list of mini icons below the main queue, with CDs sometimes also appearing in the main queue, depending upon whether or not it was sensible to include them in the rotation; (2) TRASH - still show the list of small CD icons but don't include them in the rotation as no-one needs to blow CDs on trash!; (3) NEVER - don't show a list of mini CD icons and never include in the rotation. Alternatives: If you really must you can enter "/wdw boss" in chat to step one by one through the 3 options. Bi-directional keybindings are also supported.
How to Toggle Rotations
Firstly, an optimised rotation for AoE is tough to do. No add-on can do a great job at this. I nevertheless provide these modes as well as a choice between dual/2H for the Frost DK, and "No AoE" options and even an "Automatic" option for Shaman with an AoE mode that is really quite good. Hover the mouse-wheel over any of the main queue icons except the last icon. Moving the mouse-wheel will cycle through the available modes. Alternatives: If you really must you can enter "/wdw mode" in chat to step one by one through the options. Bi-directional keybindings are also supported.
WDW doesn't try to trap and track combat events, or guess at when an ability might be off cool down and then try to piece it all together. Instead it relies upon being regularly (every couple of 100ths of a second) polled by Blizzard's server. It makes "calls" to Blizzard for information (i.e. "API calls") and works around (using avoidance/alternatives) any that are unreliable/unready.
If you do think that WDW is weighing you down, you can configure things such as how often it cycles.
None known presently.
