As someone two months back into the game from quitting since mostly tbc, I was wondering

1.) If anyone knows of a guide to spell animations documenting important cooldowns by class

or

2.) What the community (ha...) thinks of putting one together.

No fancy editing, just fraps of each class using major cooldowns for popular arena specs and what they look like. Even the experienced players might learn something from this, and while tools exist like GladiatorLosSA to facilitate associating spell animations with names, I think this would be a lot more beneficial.

I'm actually already working on that. Let's see if Hotted gets it out faster, haha.

Looking for feedback. Do you like how this one is done? Want to get some opinions before continuing to the other classes.

That looks really good, the only thing I would maybe change is to add the cooldown for the ability when you show the description and icon for it.

Second part of the animation guide series. This time it's about warriors and shows the cooldowns like Synkz suggested. Monk is up next.

Thanks Birdski. This is a lot of work, especially anything that needs more than one player. Finding someone willing to help for a simple thing like a stun to show Dematerialize costs endless time. Anyways Monk is done, but I'm scared of the work load that classes like Druid or Shaman will bring. Will probably do Warlock next as I am not too familiar with Demonology and Destruction, yet, so I can learn quite some things, too.

Also adding annotations for the Hunter cooldowns.

If someone wants to help me frapsing - send me a PM.

Hildegard, you are a shining beacon awesomeness around here. Thank you so much! If there's anything I can do to help (only have a rogue...) please don't hesitate to ask.

If you have access to the PTR you can definitely help me to fraps. Anything that involves more than one player is a pain in the ass. Also working on warlocks right now, but I got no green fire.

Warlocks! Messed up the Flames of Xoroth animation to my regret, but the rest should be ok. No green flames, got no lock with green flames. If someone has a warlock with green fire and is willing to spend one hour to fraps green flames on the PTR - let me know.

I'd help, but I don't have green fire on any of my warlocks :(
