Add-ons

If you could make an add-on do something better, what add-on would change and what would you make it do?

I'm thinking about a few... one being healersmustdie when I go into random bgs.... I only marks them after they cast a known healing spell from what I can tell... I don't know how it marks them period... but it'd be nice if it would just perma-mark the healers from the the start... it's not like you can't look in the beginning and see what everyone's spec is... it should mark them then... that way when you see that big bulls-eye ride up into battle you can attack them then... and not wait for them to cast a few healing spells to get marked.

wish there was a way npcscan could just reset itself... that pretty annoying.

you guys got any?

I think most addons could be improved in one way or another. Much of it would be personal preference though and probably not universally preferred.

I'd like to see an addon that just adds a resizable minimap with node routing. Carbonite does this but all I want is the minimap from it really. The rest is mostly wasted.

i know its kind of a hobby for the people who write these addons but i would be happy if they were ready to go after a patch comes thru instead of having to wait a few days or even longer...theres an addon i loved that still hasnt been updated since 5.1

I wish that someone would create an addon updater. I know Curse has one, and it's free, but has advertising built in. But the updater would run on all platforms, not just windows.

I'd love an addon that resolves the global variable taint that forces me to /reload just to change a friggin' talent or glyph!

or blizzard could fix that code... either one will suit me just fine.


On a more serious note... I don't know if it was Clique or a change Blizzard made in the API, but I can no longer keybind the MouseScrollUP or MouseScrollDown to spells anymore. Used to be my self defense CDs (fade, barkskin, desparate prayer, IBF, etc.). They've been added to the growing list of Alt+Button keybinds.

Yeah but I would still be stuck with the WoW UI minimap. Ugh. Too small.

Bartender works for me in all those cases!

Make it so I could choose certain items to not be sorted and I could choose them to be at the top spots in my bags.

True, but not easy to use and you can't just drag a corner and resize like a window.

Must be Clique, as I use the stock bars (no bar addon) and have no problems with my scroll wheel bindings.

I use healersmustdie and when running a BG as a healer, detection is nearly instant. In healer spec in a BG it's not possible to avoid healing asap, after the first cast, the healer flag goes up. Your BG while waiting is expecting the healer to heal and buff. My most durable healer used to be a shaman. Today it's not as easy as it was when totems were different.

I would love a bg addon to automatically auto reports in BG's when people stay static 2 minutes after the game starts.
