DocsUI Biting for Dummies
Version: r6
by: dr_AllCOM3 [More]

(Works in every language)




Blood-Queen Lana'thel addon.
Very easy to use and a comfortable graphical user interface.
Only one person has to use the addon, no forcing the raid to install and update this addon!


This is how you use the addon:
  • Open with /b or /bfd.
  • Press fill list to check your raid.
  • Press enable to make it automatically assign players their targets infight.
Now your're good to go until you log out or reload your interface.
Click on a name to change it's details.
Certain boss mods can mess with the raid icons!


You can change the player order by clicking on the names.
I've based the standard order on the WowMeterOnline.com class ranking for BQL, so the best classes get bitten first.





Installation: Unpack into your \World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons\ folder. Done!
Config ingame under Interface->Addons or with /b or /bfd.

Please report any errors, thanks!

Whould be Nice if it can broadcast a List before the Fight begins.

Like:
Player 1 -> Player 2
Player 1 -> Player 3 | Player 2 -> Player 4
....

It would be great if the addon could detect and adjust for people not biting their assisgned target.

Also a way to dump the order to raid chat would be super

I tried:
/dump LibStub("DocsUI_BitingForDummies").raid[]
/dump LibStub("DocsUI_BitingForDummies").raid{}
/dump LibStub("DocsUI_BitingForDummies").raid
but none of that works

Edit: Oh, and please add some way of adding a single new person without doing a full-rescan <3

However during the fight he seemed to still be treated as DPS, i.e. he was way higher in the list.
The role doesn't matter, you have to change his number.

In someway there must be some kind of algorhitm to process the list.
So, for example we have this prio list:

1,2,3,4,5,6

I want to know, who will bite whom?

0, the one bitten by bwl, will bite 1.
Then, next bite, who will be bitten by 0 and who will be bitten by 1? Will 0 bite 2 oder 1 bites 2 and 0 bites 3? And how is further progression?
The progression is dynamic. Whoever bites the fastest of 0-1 gets 2, the other gets 3. The fastest of 0-3 gets 4 and so on.

Just a couple of questions for optimizing.
The player bitten by bql is removed from the list or how does the addon handle this?
As we have fixed positions and i would like to minimize movement, could you please explain how the priority list will be processed?
Example:
Number 0 is the one bitten by bql and so removed from the list.
So number 0 bites number 1, and for the next bites? Number 0 bites number 2 and Number 1 bites number 3? Then 0=>4, 1=>5 and so on?
This was just a guess so that you can understand what I'd like to know

I've made some changes, based on various replies.
You can now change the role of a player and there's a message if an inspect fails.
The bug with missing players was only a display issue. You can noch simply refresh the display, just in case.
Prefering nearby players is off by default. It's only useful if everyone play at an equal level. In most cases you want the best players to be bitten first.
It's possible to show the messages in the raid chat now, so you can yell at bad players .

Tell me if you can reproduce that.
I forgot to change the internal version number .

That must have been his fault.
Latest version includes victim whispers.

It'd also be nice to either have an option to customize the message sent, or perhaps include the biters name. Reason being, chatter will highlight any message with your name in it, and optionally send it to a raid warning or somewhere more visible than the chat window.

A few people also remarked it might be worthwhile to tell the bitee's that they're 'next' (apparently getting a symbol on their head isn't obvious enough )

Hey! thx for the nice addon ! very usefull =)

Just a thing : when i first scan my raid to get the list of biting potential victims, i can define the order w/o any issue.

But when i try to change the order by reopening the GUI (/b), only 3 names show up. I have to press "fill list" to get the full list and reorder again.

Another typo : local version is still r3 (it should be r4 ?)

Status report:
My raid leader used the addon today while I was present and it worked perfectly. He used DXE and was the only one promoted, so there were no raid icon issues.
If you want a working BQL addon, go and grab this one .

I didn't implement a category change yet. The category is purely cosmetic, the number is the important thing.
Dividing the damage dealers into two groups could be beneficial.
It could be good to warn new victims.

Sometimes the addon picks the wrong players.
Which version did you use? r2 had those problems.
