I looked over stickies and so many people use different addons. Id prefer functionality and minimal( but mandatory) to conserve my framerates
I currently have
-bgtargets
-nameplatecooldowns( how can I make their Cds on top of their heads bigger? cuz I play windowed and cant see )
-rangedisplay
-diminshingreturns(how can I make diminishing returns icon bigger all it shows is the little icon on the top left corner did I not configure it correrctly ? )
-saysapped

what other addons should I use?

Also
How do i use focus macros more effectively or focus in general?

Especially in random battlegrounds there are waay too many opponents to keep track.

Do i just manually ''set focus'' on the most dangerous opponent or is there an easier way

How do i get more keybinds. I can reach 1-7 and f1-f6, s1, s2, s-e, s-d, ,s -x, s-z. I even went ahead and unhotekeyed ESC and CAPSlock for an extra easy key.

if i try to use ALT or CTRL i'll usually fatfinger the windows keyand they feel uncomforable reachin alt to 7.I got a Logitech g600 over a month ago. How the fuck am I supposed to use this thing? Im still using only 2 buttons...its just easier to even reach a 7...how do others use gaming mice?

Hello,

I would recommend :
  • Gladius for arenas, It also includes a nice DR/dispell tracker.
  • Omnibar if you play a caster.
  • Battlegroundstargets for RBGs.
  • Successful interrupt announcer, to know if you successfully interrupted a cast.
Please never install gladiatorlossa ! If you want to improve your gameplay you need to practice your game awareness !

The rest is mostly personal preference :
  • I like reflex for the arenas history.
  • I like postal to manage my letterbox.
  • I like HandyNotes to manage my garrison.
  • I like Weakauras because you can do a lot of interesting stuff with it, by far my favorite addon.

I mostly use mouseover macros in RBG.

For arenas targeting in 3s I use : mouse wheel-up, mouse wheel-down, and wheel button.

wheel up : tar 1
wheel down : tar 2
wheel button : tar 3

shift+wheel up : focus 1
shift+wheel down : focus 2
shift+wheel button : focus 3

alt+wheel up : main cc 1 (fear if you play a warlock)
alt+wheel down : main cc 2 (fear if you play a warlock)
altl+wheel button : main cc 3 (fear if you play a warlock)

ctrl+wheel up : secondary cc 1 (spell lock if you play a warlock)
ctrl+wheel down : secondary cc 2 (spell lock if you play a warlock)
ctrl+wheel button : secondary cc 3 (spell lock if you play a warlock)

if i try to use ALT or CTRL i'll usually fatfinger the windows keyand they feel uncomforable reachin alt to 7.I got a Logitech g600 over a month ago. How the fuck am I supposed to use this thing? Im still using only 2 buttons...its just easier to even reach a 7...how do others use gaming mice?


I prefer G700s over G600/naga. Less buttons but easier to reach.

To solve your fatfingers problem you could simply bind the alt and ctrl modifiers to your mouse.

Hope this helps,
Regards.

ty for the responses

like what I don't understand

when people say mouseover macros, are they even needed? or am I wasting unneeded clicks clicking on an opponent and only then performing my rotation as opposed to just performing the rotation right away when mousing over?

how do I bind alt and ctrl lol

what about random bgs, do you guys even use targeting or just go ham on random healer/caster/etc?

ppl call me bad for not using focus /mouseover in randoms that's why I kinda just made this whole post

Mouseover is generally a terrible idea.

Making focus macros for key abilities like spell lock and fear is generally a great idea.

Making ctrl and alt modifier binds is as simple as going into the keybinding options and, err, pressing the bind you want? Including the modifier if needed.

In bgs target enemies by clicking them, no one has targeting binds for bgs, that would impossible.
