    Main menu -> Key bindings. You can already bind raid targets.

    Starting from Scratch for Cata

    I've experimented with a lot of different addons and settings during WotLK and want to start fresh for Cata. What's the best method for completely starting fresh and rebuilding a UI from the ground up: complete reinstall? or just will just cleaning out the Addons and WTF folder do the trick? (and if it's complete reinstall, is it best to start when 4.0.1 drops or wait until the expac hits?)

    I'll be keeping a copy of the existing WTF folder in case of emergency.

    The only thing I've modified outside the Addons and WTF folder was probably the fonts...which I'm assuming I can probably copy over from the PTR copy into the Live one, correct?

    Simply dropping Interface and Addons should reset your UI (unless you have custom fonts, in which case you might want to remove the Fonts one too).

    Yeah you can rename your folder InterfaceOLD and WTFOLD or whatever and when the game sees that the folder it is looking for is not there, it will create a brand new default one, but you still have yours on backup.

    hi could some1 tell me if i can make 2 addon folders, 1 for each account. 1 mine and the other of my brother.
    i wanted to have separate folders so we dont mess with the addons of each other

    Addon folders are already separated by account. WTF\Account\ACCNAME_IN_CAPS.

    EDIT: If you mean interface folders, as long as you don't uninstall anything, you should be fine.

    Actually, if you both use the same addons, just have them set up differently, I'd use the addon Reflux. This allows you to swap between addon setups (including turning off/on addons) with a simple command: /reflux switch <profilename>

    Set up one profile for you, one for your brother, and you can just type that command to swap back and forth (if necessary).

    However, if you don't want to do that, you can make a second "Addons" folder, and you just have to rename the Addons folders. If I'm John and my Brother is Frank, when I wanted to play and he had just played, I'd rename the "Addons" folder to "Addons.Frank", and then I'd rename "Addons.John" to "Addons". When Frank wants to play, he just renames "Addons" to "Addons.John" and then renames "Addons.Frank" to "Addons". This way, it's easy to see who's addons folder is currently active.

    Oddly enough that does look vaugely famillar, primarily due to the unitframes.
    Not sure if it was ever released as a compilation, but it was discussed a while back on this forum.
    Little in there that is particuarly unusual, so outside of the unitframes then nothing will take much time to recreate from various addons.
    If there are any specific addons or features that interest you then fire away and we will see what we can do.

    Edit: I actually have a request.
    Is there an addon which will allow searching for a combat log event.
    I want something that would allow me to do identify the source of the likes of the train set, leather balls etc.
    I am not looking for something with a fixed list, since I may wish to expand upon it.

    UIs really not my thing but he mentions in the youtube comment that he uses SexyCooldowns, RoguePowerBars, and Shadowed Unit Frames.

    and CN aww why ruin the fun. Trees can probably crank some code out like the Fish Feast code.

    Ok I should be able to find what I'm looking for but it's eluding me. I am just looking for a mod to show my abilities on cooldown as bars on my screen that count them down.

  14. #7054
    SexyCooldown or CoolLine or ForteXorcist (which has way too much bloat imo).

    Gershuun @ Borean Tundra US - Interface & Macros Moderator

  15. #7055
    Depends if you want one bar with several icons, or several bars.
    NeedToKnow is my preferance for multiple bars, since as Lawomous stated Forte is way too bloated.

    NeedToKnow looks nice. Does it show cooldowns as well? It doesn't mention it in the description.

  17. #7057
    Yeah it does, you just change the bar type to Spell Cooldown.

    It can do cooldowns, and internal cooldowns on say trinkets etc too.
    Best demonstrated in this video by Kripparian.

    Can do, one sec.

    EDIT: Done.
