HUUUUUUUUUGE NOTE: If your settings have been reset, and you just updated druidbar to v4.21 or higher, it's not a bug. It means there's new variable data that isn't compatible with the old stuff you're rockin'. Don't forget to reset your mount for best form, your custom messages, or to re-lock your bar in place!
New for 3.0.2, A Fresh Hip Description for DruidBar, 4.21!
Druid Bar is a movable mana bar that keeps track of your current mana, even in a shapeshifted form like bear or cat. This is NO LONGER an estimation, as they finally allowed us access to information about all power types in all forms. Note that when you watch this bar in feral forms, it only updates every 2s, and not the flashy new "Update a teeny bit of mana every 0.2s!". This is blizz default, not something i put in. Anyway. For the newest version, everything's been rewritten and reoptimized to be kind to your aura. Also, options should actually WORK. Most of the customizability is intact, but a few have been stripped away or limited for the time being. If you absolutely want/need one of these things more customizable, request it from me. That means if you want something in, or added, or have a cool idea, post a comment here and i'll read it, or send me a pm. I'm an asshole, but i do read and respond to this stuff.
In addition to all of that, this addon has two extra little built-in things: On-Shift Messages(For all you fancy RP'ers, or maybe you want to yell at your tank because something made you shift from healing to bear, or maybe you just have something stupid to say when you shift!) as well as Easy Shifting and Best Form functions.
Messages are a little extra thing for utility or flavor. When you shift into a form, it'll say whatever you want it to through whatever chat style you want. You can set it to go off rarely or every time. It also works for warriors, rogue stealth, shamans, paladins, and even death knights! Just something fun for you guys.
Best Form - Shifts you to the most suitable travel-based form with the information available to it. Are you standing still? It'll mount you with your chosen mount. Are you moving? Flight form it is! What if you can't fly, or are somewhere you can't fly, or are in combat? Travel! How about taking a swim? Aquaticly sound movement increases. Not only does this free up multiple buttons for movement, it also eliminates the need for a macro to shift into these forms. I'm sure if you guys have ever tried making a macro for it, you'll note you're cramped for space. Eh, don't worry about it anymore, and just use the Best Form available.
To select mounts to use for Best Form, go into your mount frame. Integrated for your pleasure!
Recently I've added some more customizability that i like to call Easy Shifting. lol, didn't i scrap ezshift so long ago? Anyway, since the issues of "the best way to shift into bear" has been thrown around so much, I simply opened it up to everyone, to let you make and save your own pseudo-macros for each form. They're independent of the blizzard macro system and have their own bindings associated with them. It's not exclusively for shifting macros, but that's the main use for them currently. feel free to change them how you see fit.
Options: Type in /dbar or /druidbar, or check your interface->addons tab.
Having a problem, getting errors, or just want to reset it to default? hit the "defaults" button under the specific tab you want to reset, and click "These Settings"
Let me know what you think of the new addon, or the new direction. Tell me if you have any problems. Any and all suggestions or enhancement ideas are welcome. Also, any help with updating the localization would be great, if anyone wants to chip in. I'll be trying to fix it with what work had already been done, but a lot of it is completely new ways of doing things, so i'll probably get it wrong if i just do it myself. lol. Just leave a comment or send me a private message.
