BigWigs Bossmods  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r12091

Big Wigs is a boss encounter add-on. It consists of many individual encounter scripts, or boss modules; mini add-ons that are designed to trigger alert messages, timer bars, sounds, and so forth, for one specific raid encounter. These encounter scripts are activated when you target or mouse over a raid boss, or if any other Big Wigs user in your raid does. In most cases only one module will be running at any given time.

If you're looking for boss encounter scripts for 5-man dungeons, these are not in Big Wigs, but live in their own add-on; Little Wigs.

Pull Timer text

Is there a way to disable the message countdown on pulls in BigWigs?

**Pull in 10 sec**
**Pull in 9 sec**
**Pull in 8 sec**

And so on.

Norushen AltPower

While we've had AltPower support for a few weeks now, we hadn't yet enabled it for Norushen due to issues with the encounter itself. The Blizzard power function returns false values for anyone other than yourself (it randomly gets stuck at 75), you may have noticed this if you've been looking at your unit frames or another addon that measures power on Norushen. This is most prominent if you've just come out of the other phase into the normal realm, everyone will report as 75 power, which is wrong.

To combat this we implemented power syncing so that everyone sends their own power to the raid, which is now viewable in the latest release of BigWigs. To my knowledge BW is the only addon to implement this functionality and as so will always have correct power values displayed in the AltPower frame.

You may notice that some players have a value of -1, this means:
  • That player is using an out-of-date BigWigs and should update.
  • That player is using an out-of-date DBM and should update.
  • That player isn't using a boss mod.

This syncing functionality also has the added benefit of being able to see power values of phased players (in the other realm), instead of it appearing as 0.

This is somewhat improved in the latest release (we only open proximity when it's close to Catalyst)

It's the system Blizzard forces us to use to keep code out of RAM until it's needed.

Re: pull timers

You can read our slash commands by opening the config panel, which includes a pull timer that gets sent to BW and DBM users.
