We Don't Wipe  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.02
by: Taraezor [More]
Description
A DPS maximiser. Displays a sequence of icons from left to right, representing the order in which you should use your abilities so that maximum DPS may be achieved. You 'plug in' modules for your class/specialisation into a single AddOn, ensuring a consistent and familiar interface across the range of your characters.

Supported Class/Specialisations
* Windwalker Monks
* Frost Deathknights (2H) 5.4!
* Frost Deathknights (DW) 5.4!
* Arcane Mages 5.4!
* Fire Mages 5.4!
* Frost Mages 5.4!
* Enhancement Shamans 5.4!
* Elemental Shamans 5.4!

* More to come!

DPS Rotations/Priorities
The author has already researched the most popular and effective rotation for your character. Allowance has been made for the Talents you have chosen. We Don't Wipe presents the next few abilities you should use. Due to randomness in the game, the queue of abilities will constantly change depending upon cooldowns, critical strike "procs", useful combinations, and so on.

We Don't Wipe is perfect for anyone wishing to come to grips with the latest thinking for the mechanics of a class/specialisation through to seasoned raiders wishing to maximise their DPS.

For notes specific to a class/spec you should see the respective Module download page.

Features
  • Priority queue displayed as a dynamic sequence of up to 10 icons
  • Dynamic class relevant Charge display (e.g. Maelstrom Weapon / Arcane Charges)
  • Accurate distance range estimation
  • Modularised: Make your own rotations and upload and share with others!
  • Prompts for interrupts, mob dispels and friendly dispels
  • In-game icon based editing and display of your selected rotation cooldowns
  • In-game icon based editing and display of abilities to exclude from rotations
  • Cooldowns (Shown & Excluded) may come from your spellbook, equipment, buffs, bags and IDs
  • Tooltips for all rotation and CD icons and configurable options
  • Configurable icon positions and sizes
  • Multiple rotations are supported
  • Supports Racials, whether for rotation queue, CD list, or interrupts/dispels
  • You do not need to be level 90 to use WDW!
  • Global Cooldown dynamically monitored/calculated/configureable
  • Key bindings for rotations and for changing cooldown/rotation synergy
  • Mob classification/type/family shown
  • Debug mode available to module authors (or anyone really)
  • Rotations researched from reputable and well known sources
  • Does NOT track the Combat Log. Meaning that the core of WDW is not CPU hungry

Cooldowns
Aside from the modularised rotations in a centralised core, the other defining characteristic of WDW is Cooldowns. You can configure this list while playing, using the built in editor. It is powerful and intuitive. Racials like Berserker are supported. You can tell a module which abilities you wish to have excluded. This is a separate list to your displayed Cooldowns.

How to Instal Simplified for v3.01!!!
Install as you would any other addon. Go to "Interface" and then "Addons" from the game menu to adjust to your liking. Try also /wdw from any in game chat channel.

See 'Modules' below as this page is for the WDW "engine". You will also need to download modules.

How to Move WDW
Firstly go to "Game Menu" then "Interface" then "AddOns". For We Don't Wipe look at "Queue Settings". Ensure "Locked" is not checked. Return to the game. Hover the mouse over the centre of the first ability icon in the main queue. Must be in the centre area. Now hold down the left mouse button and drag and release. Easy!

Modules
WDW ships with its core engine files along with a fairly empty 'Modules' folder. A template with notes is provided for budding LUA programmers to have a go at their own WDW module. Obviously changes to a module don't necessitate a full download of WDW, a key advantage since v3.00.

Use the links above to download modules.

Drop the downloaded module(s) file into the "Modules" folder. It is that easy! No file editing for v3.01!!!

Performance
WDW builds a saved Spellbook and other lists each time you enter the world or a zone/instance or update your talents. During combat it relies upon being 'polled' by Blizzard's servers and just displays a pre-processed sequence of icons that was built by a class/spec module. Modules written by the author of WDW do NOT trap and track the combat log. Instead they go through a priority list of actions and decide where in the next 10 (or less if the player decides) x 'Global Cooldowns' that action must occur. Every class/spec has a filler action and these are used to plug in the gaps. The core of WDW is very light. The simplicity or complexity of a module is the determinant of any performance issues.

If you do think that WDW is weighing you down, you can configure things such as how often it cycles.

FAQ
Go to my official FAQ page at FAQ.

Updates & Favourites
You can make We Don't Wipe a Favourite and get an automatic notification (PM) or email (enabled through your profile) when I update it.

Cookies, Beer & Donations
It is all about the Cookies & Beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Click here to lend your support! because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend".

Wanting more from Cooldowns or Distance Estimation?
You might like to try using Cool Aid to give even more customisation to the Cooldown display elements of WDW (you'll need to disable displaying Cooldowns via WDW). The same is true for the distance estimation with Hard Yards.

Follow @Taraezor for the latest news on We Don't Wipe!
v3.02
====
* Saved Spellbook "active" spell limit exceeded by a player. Extended from 56 to 70
* Added ability to specify Cooldown or Item by ID number!

* If target is a player then the usual target information text replaced with some basic player relevant stuff
* Interface options panel better organised, some rewordings
* Friendly audible login welcome sound, tailored for races

* Interface options panel cleaned up but still has that cozy "Ace" feel (Core + Interface)
* Removed "Ace" as a dependancy. WDW now its own boss (Core + Interface + TOC)
* Calculation of number of each type of DK rune is now accurate and not a (pretty good) estimate (Core)
* Helpful message and sound for when seeking to reposition the icons (Core)
* Allow for more CD icons (Core)
* Allow for more than two DK Death runes (Actions)

* Exclude Auto Attack from pre-scanned Spellbook (Core)
* Invisible first/main icon could previously be moved (if you were clever). Now not possible (Core)
* Notify other users of your WDW version and prompt player if player has an out of date WDW version (Core)
* Spellbook scanning now correctly knows about and allows multiple spells with the same name. Relevant to Mage Polymorph (Core)
* Removed the 'Up to You' icon. It was a dumb idea but fun at the time to see Hula Dolls and icecream cones on the screen (Core)
* Now works properly for Mana Gems. What a hack job that was (Core)
* Changed Welcome message and added a non-intrusive welcome sound (Core)
* Fun stuff (Core + Interface)

v1.05
====

* Fix bug when switching from Frost to Arcane, with no zone change and then generating 1 Arcane Charge

v1.04
====

* Frost Death Knights added
* Massive performance boost. No longer throttles cpu (lesson: don't blindly trust what you read on the net, test for yourself!)
* Tooltips for all icons
* Keybindings revamped, including the bug in v1.03. Now bi-directional for both rotation & cooldown
* Mouse wheel support as an alternative to keybindings
* Frost Mages no longer prompted for Water Elemental when mounted
* Slight range text placement adjustment to allow for null queues (unlikely as it is)
* The forced English language for a player's "specialisation" removed. Thus more non-English friendly
* Shaman Reincarnation correctly shows when dead and not on CD
* Mage Tier 2 talent no longer assumed to be Ice Barrier (unlikely as that would be in PvE)

v1.03
====

* Frost Mages added
* Revamped the AoE rotations for Mages
* Fixed bug with a rarely appearing phantom cool down for the last spell in the queue
* Fixed an AoE rotation addon crash for one of the Mage specs
* Added debug code for a couple of very rare errors due to Blizzard returning nil data for an API call, one relating to the "charge" counts to the left of the main queue icon.

v1.02
====

* Arcane Mages added
* Fire Mages added
* Mini icons to display Interrupts/target dispel/player dispel/cooldowns
* More complicated rotations
* More configuration options
* Minor bug fixes, too numerous to mention
* Split main file into several files to ease management

v1.01
====

* Elemental Shaman added

* The "Strictly no AoE" mode has been incorporated into the other modes, accessible by clicking on a key binding.
* The tables of rotations, spells and actions have been edited to facilitate expansion as well as to protect against trampling on other add-ons due to shared naming.
* The range estimation now never tests spells, only items. It took me a long time of experimenting to get the distances right and to hunt down the items.
* Previously stuck on "Automatic" due to carelessness.
* Perhaps some minor cosmetic bugs. I really forget. Nothing remarkable.

Stuff I am Doing

(1) Enhancement Shamans rotation ** DONE **
(2) Then releasing v3.00 ** DONE **
(3) Addressing concerns in the previous posts ** DONE for v3.01 (Patch 5.4) **
(4) Elemental Shamans ** DONE** , Unholy DKs
(5) Big update to my Cool Aid AddOn.

In that order of priority.

Also planning to do a couple of simple AddOns related to Fishing and Titles.

Not the first time 'click through' has been requested. Will add it to my list of things to do. Problem though:

All tooltips would have to be removed. This would disadvantage new players who are using WDW as a tool to familiarise themselves with a rotation.

Solution would be to have two different setups. Memory footprint would increase, maintenance would become more difficult, CPU hit should be negligible (a few 'if' statements). Not a small task .

Yes. A solution for now would be to turn off the CD display (via the Options Panel) and to instal my 'Cool Aid' AddOn. CA does the same as the Cooldowns part of WDW but is more fully featured. Might do your request in WDW in the future.

Blizzard do not allow this sadly.

Will re-test this, under a variety of conditions. My definition of "In Combat" is broader than most people. If I detect that a mob is aggressive toward you then I will display the interface, even if you have no target selected. Why? One reason is so that you can tell if you have been targeted by a player (on a PvP server) while you are out in the world questing/chilling. That is very useful. It works nicely for me, for example, when doing the weekly Booty Bay fishing contest.

From memory, if you are in any kind of dungeon or raid, I call this "in combat" too. The Options Panel tooltips do make my rather broad idea of "combat" clear.

Nevertheless, I will re-test.

So I registered here to first thank you for the addon. It was exactly what I was looking for with my new Windwalker monk (just hit 89 and the cooldowns/rotation is confusing!)

Had a couple comments/questions.

1) For the people having trouble moving the icons, try changing the icon size to 50+ and you'll see where the tooltip disappears and you hear the little noise. A message appears in chat that says "You may now move We Don't Wipe! also". I cannot get this to appear if the icon is < 50 as I run with it at 25

2) Is there any way you can remove the tooltip on mouseover? What would be even better is make it completely click through and possibly transparent. That way I can keep it right by my monk's head but not have it interfere with looting or clicking on mobs I want to attack.

3) Is there a way to detach the cooldown bar so I can put it under my character? Would it be possible to make the cooldown bar clickable? That would be fantastic if so because then I can see something is off cooldown and just click on it rather than remember the keybind.

4) I notice when I uncheck "Always show" sometimes the cooldown bar stays after combat and only goes away unless I go in and check/uncheck the box again. Sometimes selecting a target and then unselecting it will clear it but not always.

5) Sometimes I notice that under certain cooldowns, there are little white dots... What are those for?

Again, great addon. I really appreciate the work you put into this.

To be honest, I don't remember if I got a chat message the first time, but I definitely did not get one this time - and this time the addon will not budge.

I use a PC running Windows 64.
Hmmm... All I can suggest is that you try the above procedure with no other AddOns. I am suspecting a conflict with some other AddOn here. Please report back, as I am keen to help you.

Okay let's see if we can sort this out.

From v3 onwards when you download WDW, you need to get the modules separately. A few reasons for this but in the long run it is for the better.

Currently not all the previously supported classes are to be found in v3 but recently progress has sped up. That might be the source of your woes.

Apart from that I would need more information.

(I am making headway with Frost DK. Just balancing rune and RP precalculations and comparing rotation ideas from different reputable sources).

v3.00 Finally Here (as Beta)

Rather cautious releasing this as beta, I know.

Probably Frost DKs (both DW and 2H) and Unholy DKs next.
Then some shammie love.

After that open to requests but Warlocks and Rogues might be possible.

Lost internet for more than a couple of weeks. Back in action as I type this.

Reply to the above: I am no longer using v2 and am actively using and testing v3 on my Windwalker. It does not exhibit the problem above. I develop this on a Mac by the way. V3 is very near to release. Stay tuned. Fully functional for Windwalkers.

Next Release

Progress is excellent by my standards. Slow by others' standards for sure.

(1) I have a working Windwalker tested from level 1 through to the low 70's - where my toon is at.
(2) I have gone through code to ensure that incidental memory usage creep (a common thing in WoW AddOns) is absolutely minimal. Most importantly when it does creep, all unallocated memory does actually get caught in "garbage collection" and WDW drops back to its base of below 350KB footprint every time.
(3) Presently coding the last bit of WDW: a hinted at better way to handle cooldowns and whether or not they appear in a rotation. You must agree that furtively toggling a "mode" by way of the mousewheel is really not acceptable for that is what we have now.

AddOn will be released as beta WINDWALKER ONLY with the higher levels, esp. 90 UNTESTED. And while I take feedback I will add back in the Mage/DK/Shaman.

That's basically it.

I must say, the Windwalker rotation is really excellent for me. It properly manages decisions based upon Chi and anticipates Chi needs by looking TEN global cooldowns ahead for buffs etc coming off CD.

If you have followed the previous instructions then:

(1) You receive a chat message informing you that you can move the interface
(2) You will hear a sparkling sound - the same sound as when you click on a random location in the circular mini-map in the top right of your screen

If the above does NOT occur then it means you didn't UN-CHECK the checkbox in the options menu. In some countries we refer to "checking" as "ticking" (at least in Australia to my knowledge but we've pretty much assimilated most American English usage these days).

The locking mechanism is necessary. Some players want it freely moveable, even while in battle. Some players don't. Nobody is right or wrong in that respect! The dual chat/audible messages are necessary as some players have reported targeting issues in locating the centre of the first/main icon (even though I use a centre-ish region and not the exact centre).

Hope that helps!
