Broker: TalentSwitch - No longer supported  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: No Longer supported
by: Tymesink [More]
This addon is no longer supported. I would suggest using the following addon as a replacement:

Ara Broker SpecSwitcher





Broker: TalentSwitch is a LibDataBroker based info addon. This is a very simple addon which provides a simple and easy way
to switch between Primary and Secondary Talent specs.

Data Broker Display
This plugin does not provide a display of its own, you will need to install display plugin such as Fortress, Carousel or Docking Station, amongst others.







Extended thanks to
- PatoDaia for the esES language file
- mrgyver for the koKR language file
- fuyuri for the zhTW language.

Great idea!
If you're open for feature requests: I'd like for the text to show the actual spec, i.e. "Marksmanship - 7/57/7" rather than "Primary Spec" or "Secondary Spec".

I agree with Nakari -- the ability to edit the talent spec description to something more meaningful than 'Primary' or 'Secondary' would be very, very nice.

Thanks for working on this great addon!

Great Idea! This can be done automatic by reading the talents and displaying the results or... would you think allowing the user to put a custom message for the primary and secondary would be better?

Custom descriptions are definitely the way to go. "DPS" and "TANK" are way more descriptive and easy to pick between than a breakdown of talent points (like xx/xx/xx). However, if a player wants to put that breakdown in, they can....

Nice addon !

But could you modify the package to be compatible with WoWInterface UI Updater ? Seems it doesnt support .rar files.

Keep the good work !

Sorry about that. It was early morning hours that I uploaded 1.1. Wasn't paying attention. I repackaged the addon into .zip format.

Nice touch with the custom spec naming feature. I switched to this from DualSpeccer. One feature that I liked about DualSpeccer was it displayed both your current and alternate specs in the tooltip. Would you please consider adding this functionality?

Just so that I understand what you are asking...

So for those ppl out used the custom name feature and used the word "Tank" or "DPS" or some other naming convention, on the tooltip to display the Primary & Secondary Talent Spec in the tooltip?

That's correct. Show the custom name for each in the LDB tooltip and identify which is active and which is the alternate spec.

Could you add a feature to suppress the chat spam when you switch specs?

DualSpeccer has that (if you wanna have a look at the code).

I like these ideas and I see value in it. I'll work on it later this week when I get caught up on my client work. Thanks guys for the advice / feature request to make this addon better.

Any errors with that? Or the addon just isn't displaying anything?
