    Set up a timer in DMB, how?

    Hi, i'm gonna raid lead tonight and i have never bothered to set up a break timer before in DBM. So can anyone tell me what you type to set up a 10min DBM timer in DBM called "break"?

    Using google, I got the information after about 13 seconds:

    /dbm timer <time> <name>

    As a note to the above - I believe the <time> entry is in seconds. So, for 10 minutes, do: /dbm timer 600 10 Minute Break!

    If you open up the DBM options, there's a page on there with a 15 minute pizza timer that I usually change to five minutes and broadcast it to raid as a break timer. 10 minutes is a bit long of a break imo.

    click dbm icon
    options tab
    select "General Options"
    go down to "Create a Pizza timer"
    enter appropriate info
    select broadcast to raid
    click star timer

    DBM says the macro to broadcast a timer to the raid should look like this /dbm [broadcast] timer <time in sec> <reason> ... but the [broadcast] part isn't working. The macro without [broadcast] is working but just showing the timer to yourself.

    /dbm break 10

    It has a built in shortened command for breaks that takes input in minutes.

    For a custom one it's:

    /dbm broadcast timer 10:00 Break time!

    "broadcast" is not entered with the [ ]. It will send it to everyone in your raid that has DBM if you have assist. If you omit "broadcast" it will just create it for you.

    edit: Wow, this is a super necro.

    If you are raid leader or assisant you can just type

    /dbm break (number of minutes here)

    as well it's nice to have tanks use the following

    /dbm pull (number of seconds here)


    I use to hate calling out in vent when I was abotu to pull as it makes prepotting and everythign else a PITA but with this timer life = good
