Ara Broker SpecSwitcher  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r10
by: Aranarth [More]
This data broker plugin:

- swaps your talent spec (and gear set) when clicked.
- suppresses chat spam caused by a spec switch.
- sets aliases (leave blank to remove).
- associates an Equipment Manager Set to the current spec.
- mirrors changes made with Blizzard's Equipment Manager.
- toggles the talent frame when right-clicked.
- provides an easy to use interface.

and other minor customizations and utilities...


Supports the following addons:
- AddonLoader (reduces load screen time).
- TipTac (SpecSwitcher mimic its appearence).
r10
- Fixed gear switch (was delayed or prevented).
- Fixed default huge size for high res (was not using UIParent as parent).


r9
- Rewrote gear association and alias interfaces for 4.1 compat.
- Added: Shift+Click a gear set or a spec with an associated gear set to equip it.
- Added: MouseWheel on tooltip to change scale.
- Reacts on Blizzard's equipment manager "Delete" and "Change Name/Icon" actions (mirrors).
- Attempt to mimic TipTac look if you have TipTac.


r8
- Took advantage of the gear manager interface to provide a user friendly way to (dis)associate gear.
- Added a dialog box to edit aliases.
- Within that dialog box you have the option to use the associated gear's icon & name instead.
- Shift+Click (gear manager) and Control+Click (alias editor) can now edit your off-spec using Shift+RightClick and Control+RightClick.
- Changed tooltip to be clear and concise.
- Fixed following issue: if your spec switch cast failed to complete, the associated gear was still equiped.
- Attempted to fix rare issues: gear set not equipping and/or chat spam not blocked


r7
- Added the possibility to associate a Blizzard's equipment manager set to the current spec. You will have to manually type the name of the set.
- Removed borders from icons displayed in the tooltip for a cleaner look.


r6
- Fixed an error that was occurring with StatBlockCore 2.61 when you mouse over the block in combat while "No Tooltip In Combat" is set.


r5
- Fixed login issue.


r4
- Added Middle-Click to toggle hints.


r3
- Added aliases. Control-click to set one. Leave blank to remove an alias.

Re: Setting equipment set seems to be on offset

@gembr:

From the change log:

- Shift+Click (gear manager) and Control+Click (alias editor) can now edit your off-spec using Shift+RightClick and Control+RightClick.

I tried to summarize with "Ctrl+(Right)Click to set an alias" so I don't have to add 2 extra lines. But that's probably not the best solution.

Setting equipment set seems to be on offset

Hi - it seems when I set an equipment set for the current spec, it is setting it for the spec I am not currently in. Is this intended? thanks.

Freezing upon spec switch

Hiya! I am experiencing the problem that, every time I switch specs, my screen freezes, turns white, hangs up for 20 seconds or so, and then unfreezes, allowing normal play. Do you have any notion of what might be causing this? How I can fix it? I do use quite a few addons, but I can't think what might be interfering in this manner.

Edited because I can't spell

@saitoh183:

I had the same message and it asked me to disable Vuhdo. I did, and now it works. Not sure what's the real issue.

I HAIL YOU!

Finally someone makes a databroker spec switcher that can actually auto switch your gear sets.

You have become my greatest addition to my UI build. Thanks Ara!

I totally didn't notice the brackets around the word "Right".

Cool, and thanks!

BTW: Sorry if this has been asked before, but any possibility of having SpecSwitcher tie in with Outfitter?

Hey Aranarth,

I love your addons!

I have noticed one oddity with SpecSwitcher though. When I go to set an alias for one of my specs, it's always the spec that I'm not currently using (so if I'm in Spec 1, the alias will be for spec 2). This can be verified both by the text within the alias editor itself, as well as by setting the alias and then looking at it in SpecSwitcher's tooltip.

This would only be a minor inconvenience, except it essentially prevents low level toons from naming their spec, which leaves the numerical representation of the spec (which doesn't look as good).

Just thought I'd let you know. Please keep up the great work.

I understand Aranarth I already have your addon's spots saved in my UI for 4.0.1/Cata, so its all good Thanks for making such great addons.

@TiaMaster:

Is it still happening ?
I may attempt a quick fix if that's the case, but that will affect others (slightly delaying the gear switch). If not, I plan to add a stronger solution to avoid glitches, but that will take longer.

Suddenly it is not switching gear sets. My gear sets are still linked, however, so not sure why this is happening.

With the patch dropping next week, any chance of getting an ETA on those?

I am building a whole new UI from scratch for 4.0.1+ and I have always included your addons.
