Hey. Thanks alot for the nice guide.

If it's not too much to ask for, you think it's possible for you to list your keybinds?

And any important macro, except the focus macros, which are fairly basic.

(class specific questions, yes I know :))

All I really have are focus, decurse, and various /stopcasting /cast BLAH macros. Nothing fancy. My sheep&CS macro broadcasts into party chat, but it's pretty useless 'cus nobody ever reads it.


If it's not too much to ask for, you think it's possible for you to list your keybinds?

Keybindings tend to be unique to a player, but if you must know,

s-CHAR = shift + char
c-CHAR = ctrl + char
---- : r# Ability = -----: /cast Ability(Rank #)


` : wand
s-` : bandage
1 : blink
2 : r1 FN
3 : fireblast
4 : icelance
5 : Frostbolt
s-5 : r1 Frostbolt
s-1: pet attack
s-2: pet freeze
s-3: pet passive
s-4: summon pet
c-1: r1 Ice Armor
c-2: evocate
c-3: mana gem
c-4: arcane missiles (hardly used)
c-5: alternates between scorch and arcane blast with
a-5: other one from above ^
Q: Arcane Torrent
s-Q: Icy Veins
E: iceblock
s-E: coldsnap
R: pvp trinket
s-R: healing trinket / dps trinket (/14)
T: CoC
s-T: r1 CoC
Y: AE
s-Y: r1 AE
U: feather fall (lol, BUFF FILLER FTW!)
F: /assist
s-F: /focus
G: polymorph
s-G: /cast [target=focus] polymorph
V: counterspell
s-V: /cast [target=focus] counterspell
C: fireward
s-C: frostward
X: decurse
Z: icebarrier
s-Z: mana shield
Mouse Button 4: r1 Blizzard
s-Mouse Button 4: /castsequence r1 Dampen Magic, r1 Arcane Intellect, r1 Frost Armor, r1 Frost Ward
Mouse Button 5: vent
Middle Mouse: mana tap
s-Middle Mouse: Spellsteal

Quick problem. I was clicking along, disabling groups that I didn't want visible in my configuration when I accidentally disabled party. I can't figure out how to get it enabled again. Help appreciated.

/pitbull
-> Extra
Enable party.

The extra stores all of the disabled groups.

A couple good things came with patch 2.4.3, in terms of your pvp UI

First, and more importantly, there's a new proximo, and it fixes quite a few pieces of functionality.

(Videos uploading currently, will add in)

First off - remember seeing other people's talents in earlier versions? You can do that now, sort of. If you pick up an ability that requires a certain talent, Proximo logs that and displays it (seemingly instantly, in combat). I don't know if it's 100% solid, but I do know that it's cool.

Secondly, PET TARGETTING IS FIXED! No more targetting hunter pets! Unless I'm just overjoyed with the previous fix and didn't test this rigorously enough, pet targetting is a thing of the past!

Now the bad - it seems that there's some serious glitches in targetting. By repeatedly clicking on one unit frame I toggled through the opposing team. Sometimes it would target the wrong person, sometimes not. I'm not sure what's going on here, but it's inconsistent right now. I also can't reliably duplicate the problem, so I'm not even positive it's a bug - could be on my end. Hopefully this will be fixed, leaving only the good.

Second, Bartender4 was released.

If you've ever used a keybinding-help addon (clique? I dunno), that functionality is now in Bartender. To keybind something, instead of opening up the Esc-> Keybinding menu and finding the exact bar & button, all you have to do is type /kb and mouse over the correct hotkey, then press the keybinding. Pretty straightforward, saves a lot of time.

It looks like the right-click-to-configure option is gone when you're in "unlocked" mode. I migth be missing this, but I think it's gone.


Also, there's a July 12th version of NECB out, but it still seems pretty crippled. I haven't gotten a chance to flush out the full cooldown-tracking capability, but I can say for sure that the enemy debuffs are tracked very poorly - it relies on you targetting. I currently see no reason to switch from Afflicted/DR Tracker back to NECB.

(May plug a video in)

For proximo is there an update we need to download or was it the blizzard patch that fixed the pet targeting and the talents showing up on proximo? I still don't see the talents showing up on proximo.

I don't know if there's another place to get it, there's no reason to look elsewhere.

Also, something to keep in mind:

r78519 | grayhoof | 2008-07-15 20:16:28 -0400 (Tue, 15 Jul 2008) | 1 line
Changed paths:
M /trunk/Proximo/Proximo.lua

Proximo: reverting back to /targetexact, as /targetenemyplayer doesn't appear to work on live.

As per the dev of Proximo, the bug I discuss is in the /targetenemyplayer command. So it looks like we're still stuck with the pet glitch until Blizz fixes its shit.

cool videos, but I was attempting to make some triggers for MSBT and it seems as though I have an updated version of it which is completely different. I can't follow along at all to what you are saying.

Could you help me out please? I'm just trying to make triggers for poly/blind/fears of all kinds...basically CCs :)

I'm hoping to put out a video for 2.4.3 triggers soon, been a bit slow on that.
