We Don't Wipe  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 4.10
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.

We Don't Wipe is very fully featured and configurable. You must download separately the modules.

Download Links for Supported Class/Specialisations
* Windwalker Monks
* Arcane Mages
* Fire Mages
* Frost Mages
* Havoc Demon Hunter

Other class/specialisations exist but are not linked here as the modules need to be updated.

DPS "Rotations" or "Priority Queues"
WDW presents, as a queue, the next few abilities you should use. Allowance has been made for the Talents you have chosen, even if they are not optimal. Due to randomness and "procs" in the game, the queue might suddenly change so be ready to react!

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.

Charges
Some players need to collect so many "charges" and then activate certain spells. For example, Maelstrom Weapon, Arcane Charges and Tigereye Brew. These are fundamental to achieving decent DPS and We Don't Wipe displays your class relevant "charge" prominently at the head of the queue.

Exclusions
Dislike the author's inclusion of (for example) Flying Serpent Kick in the rotation? You have the option to exclude any spell from the queue.

Cooldowns
Directly under the queue is a smaller set of icons. These are your Cooldowns. These are fully configurable and WDW provides for just about anything, including but not limited to bag items, gear, buffs and spells.

Some abilities are more correctly considered 'timed recharges' and some classes have important stacking buffs/debuffs. WDW will make these appear just like a cooldown, complete with the sweeping 'second hand'. See Cool Aid for full details.

A Monk's Power Strikes is handled with unsurpassed accuracy.

Distance to Target
Blizzard consciously prevent us from knowing the exact distance to a target. WDW provides a very accurate range estimation for all target types. Mob in range of your Frost Nova? Are you at 40 yards yet? WDW exceeds other AddOns in accuracy. For a few more options see also this author's Hard Yards AddOn.

Beast, Critter, Humanoid or Dragonkin?
Polymorph and other abilities need this information. WDW displays the mob classification, type and family. You will be informed whether you are against a Rogue or Warrior and whether your target is Elite, Rare or a Minion. Is that a transformed player, or a pet?

Interrupts, Mob Dispels and Friendly Dispels
Depending upon your target, WDW will show a small action-relevant icon under your main rotation whenever it is possible to interrupt or dispel.

Performance
Unlike its competitors, WDW does NOT track your combat log so it it is not CPU hungry. WDW does NOT require a lot of memory and will not throttle your FPS. Periodically, WDW cleans up any computer memory which is no longer required.

Not a Level 100 Elite Tauren Chieftain?
We can't all be level 100 and WDW works for all levels, providing you have a specialisation (i.e. level 10).

Other Features

  • In-game icon based editing and display of abilities to exclude from rotations
  • Modularised: Download only what you need.
  • 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
  • Global Cooldown dynamically monitored/calculated/configureable
  • Key bindings for rotations and for changing cooldown/rotation synergy
  • Debug mode available to module authors (or anyone really)

How to Report Bugs & Suggest Improvements New!
Go to Tickets as your issue or idea may already have been listed. Please remove your list of AddOns from any bug dumps. Please identify the class/spec module you are using. You might prefer to use the forum on this page and allow the author to decide if a ticket is necessary. It is up to you.

How to Instal
As you would any other AddOn. You will need one of the modules (links above). Quit the game completely. Relaunch. Enjoy.

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!

Updates & Favourites
Why not make We Don't Wipe a Favourite and/or use Minion?

Fun Stuff™ New!
At any time you may raise your arms high and command Storm, Earth and Fire. You indeed have the power of Go'el in your hands! Heed My Call™ with '/wdw sef' or '/wdw poth' in chat. Or say hello to yourself with '/wdw sal'. Enjoy!

If You Like We Don't Wipe
While adventuring, always take the Best Quest option, pickup a great raptor pet with Adorable Hatchling Nests, and use Hard Yards, the most accurate way to measure distance and get on the Cool Aid, the essential aid to managing your cool downs!

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".

* Interface options panel better organised, some rewordings

* 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.

Yay! Update!

Thank you for this in particular, as Incanter's Flow is what I have chosen on that line.

Re: Re: Talent Icons in cooldown options pane

Ok, I'm very confused. I went onto both mage and monk a few times yesterday, with other logins in between, and saw the icons for (respectively) Alter Time and Power Strikes in the cooldowns, and on the cooldown option pane for wdw (I haven't dl'ed cool aid yet, as I'm still trying to figure out one thing at a time.) Today, neither of them are there, and I have not yet installed the update. I'm not asking for them to be there - I didn't understand why they were there when I didn't have them. 'Sample' explains it all, thank you.

Off to try to figure more things out.... My apologies if I'm being overly confused/confusing.

While I don't want it right now, I would like to possibly be able to pick it up at some later point if I change my talents.

The same is true of Alter Time on the mage cooldowns.
Edit: Works for Alter Time. WDW is definitely refreshing its "cached" list of known spells when you alter your talents.

WDW does NOT include Power strikes as WDW ignores *all* passive abilities. It would have to be included in WDW as a special exception I guess. I could do that in a future update.

Edit: Added even more text to the Cool Aid description, about looking up (with Wowhead) things like Power Strikes. Players are directed to Cool Aid for more detailed information.

You don't need to be a programmer, just take one look at the code and you will see there is some heavy optimising and managing of Chi and power happening. Word of warning!
I assume that if I've set it off (/wdw off) that it's not activating/using up cycles. How about if I have it hidden? (/wdw hid)
"off" goes one step further than "hid". If you "off" you must reload the user interface.

In the cooldown pane, it's in the 'shown cooldowns' section. If I click the icon, I get buttons in the Shown section, but not in the Exclude section. If I click on an icon in the 'contains' section, I get buttons in both. Ok, the dropdown has 'spellbook' and Power Strikes is a talent that I did not choose. There is no 'talent' option in the drop down bar.

I have a similar problem with Alter Time for my mage.
The /wdw coo screen works as follows: THREE segments. (1) Cooldowns at the top left, (2) abilities to never appear in a rotation at the bottom left. (3) a list of abilities and items on the right side.

You select from the right and decide where on the left the ability will be placed.

An ability/item on the right side may be moved to BOTH the top left and bottom right. In this situation that ability/item will no longer appear on the right side.

An ability/item in the top left means you want to see that ability/item as a small icon under your larger rotation icons.

An ability/item in the bottom left means you never want to see that ability/item appear in the large rotation icons. It is excluded from your rotation.

Example: You don't like the AddOn suggesting that you should use your Water Elemental's "Freeze" ability. Fine. Place that icon in the "Exclude list".

Example: You don't want to be told that your Windwalker should use "Touch of Death" but you want to monitor its cool down. Fine. Place it in the top left, i.e. your list of cool downs, AND place it in the bottom right, i.e. the things you don't want to see in your priority queue (rotation).

Power Strikes is a talent that I did not choose
Perhaps this and this alone is the source of the confusion. The Windwalker module you downloaded includes EXAMPLE cool downs. Initially, WDW *might* delete or ignore (I forget which at the moment) some of these things if you do not know or use them BUT... WDW can't keep doing that as it would be very annoying for players who want to swap talents and experiment on target dummies. Players don't want to see stuff disappearing all the time from their WDW "set up".

So... very possible you will see things in the list of example cool downs which you do not have or know. Just delete them if they annoy you. Select the icon via /wdw coo. Select the "delete" option and voila!

At this point I'm guessing that I need to go to WoWhead and find the spell id number to put that in the box when 'spell id' is chosen in the dropdown. Is this correct?
The spell / item ID option is for players who need to use, for example, a BUFF of the same name as a spell or a RENAMED spell or a spell using a RECYCLED or SHARED spell ID number. Blizzard do some strange things with the way spells are identified and this mechanism guarantees 100% that players can work around this. Does require some knowledge of these quirks. Too much detail for me to explain.

Yup Wowhead. You might find some useful posts there by a dude calling himself "Taraezor"

I assume that if I've set it off (/wdw off) that it's not activating/using up cycles. How about if I have it hidden? (/wdw hid)

I expect I'm doing something wrong, but I'm having problems in the cooldown options. I can't figure out how to move an icon from being shown to being excluded. An example is Power Strikes. In the cooldown pane, it's in the 'shown cooldowns' section. If I click the icon, I get buttons in the Shown section, but not in the Exclude section. If I click on an icon in the 'contains' section, I get buttons in both. Ok, the dropdown has 'spellbook' and Power Strikes is a talent that I did not choose. There is no 'talent' option in the drop down bar. At this point I'm guessing that I need to go to WoWhead and find the spell id number to put that in the box when 'spell id' is chosen in the dropdown. Is this correct?

I have a similar problem with Alter Time for my mage.

Yeah WDW will select the appropriate one.

Okay, WDW will not get confused if you have three modules always loading, even if only one, two or none of them will actually be able to be used by none/one/two/more characters.

BUT... on my old computer I usually disable modules and add ons which are just not applicable to the character. I think you should do the same too. So for a monk, disable the arcane and frost. It "eases" the memory situation a little. CPU too.

Finally, at this very late stage of an expansion, rewrites are totally out of the question.

For the NEXT expansion (lol) WDW will once again be redone. No protection errors and I will also keep you in mind. WDW is efficient but it does try to "reconfigure" textures etc EVERY cycle. That will have to stop.

I get all that, really. And I'm happily ignoring it. But I'm not going to turn off the bug catcher addon, because otherwise things that are problems for me won't get reported at all. And some things *are* just problems for me, but some are not.

Right. I get that. Unfortunately for me, typing /reload usually - as in, 90% of the time - results in me being disconnected from the server. Yes, my machine is that old. I cope. I realize that it's the accepted fix for this addon. I realize that I'm an outlier. I also know that this addon is doing things that none of my other addons do, which probably explains why a reload after /wdw off is needed to turn it back on, whereas it isn't needed for my other addons that can be turned on/off, hidden/showed.

I did see the options panel. Since this is new to me, I don't know what much of it means, and so I left it as-was. As I learn how it works, I expect I'll be adjusting it.

My game client usually crashes completely when it has that level of memory issue. I had no problem continuing to run. I also have a small monitor that displays my cpu/memory/swap usage, which I check whenever the machine seems to be having problems, and it wasn't pegging anything. *shrug* if it happens again, I'll see if there's something else going on.

Bingo! In the early 2000s it was a high end business-aimed machine by IBM. Thinkcentre is the model. Now, it's a machine my husband salvaged from work when they were being replaced, with maxed memory (4g!), a new(er) video card, and a 2 TB drive. It's what I have, and thus it's what I use. Which is why, after the first 'script too long' errors were explained (and a couple of addon authors changed things so that even I had very few of them anymore, I thank them very much), I stopped mentioning those errors in particular, because they are obviously *my* problem. I will sometimes mention them in passing to an author whose work I'm just starting to use, in case it *isn't* just me, which is why I mentioned them in this case.

Thanks for answering in detail. I have an actual question unrelated to this that I've put in another post.

Mage Incanter's Flow

Next update includes support for that. Details on the Cool Aid AddOn page (as I copy the code between the two and generally keep Cool Aid at the front just in case there is a show stopper error which would kill WDW).

For many AddOns, not all, it is enough to get everything working again.

I think you haven't seen the WDW Options panel yet. Enter "/wdw opt". That is a shortcut. A longer way is to navigate through the Interface menus in game. You will find WDW there.

In /wdw opt, there are a lot of configuration parameters, including to turn everything off or just a few things off/on.

Script too long error.

Hmm.... possible on a really really slow machine.

Why? Blizzard set a time limit for a client (i.e. your computer) to do something before returning to the WoW server. Forget exactly but I think it is 0.25 seconds.

Yes, I *did* have a problem with the Windwalker module about three years ago (or was it two lol) and I withdrew the module rather than let players use a weak/bad rotation.

Frost Mage has never had that problem BUT...

I have not run it on my really old computer in the last several months to be honest.

More confusion (I specialize in it)

I'm having problems that I can't reproduce, so it's difficult to figure them out.

/wdw off at first did nothing - it didn't turn anything off, it did not even move the cursor line, it was like I hadn't hit return, with the 'type here' window still open with /wdw off displaying.

I tried hitting return again, and got Swatter displaying "Global" and when I looked there it was a 'script ran too long' error, which is probably just the fact that my machine is slow, except that I only usually get these when in combat.

Code:

   (LONG LIST OF ADDONS REMOVED - LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT I HAVE)

  BlizRuntimeLib_enUS v6.2.0.60200 <none>
  (ck=1164)
I tried, a third time, and this time the main row of icons disappeared, but the two rows of 7 mini icons remained on my screen. I tried /wdw on, which told me I'd have to reload all my addons - which, frankly, is *awful* tho I realize it might be mandated by something blizz does, tho my few other addons that have an on/off switch don't need reloading. For me, I frequently disconnect when reloading, so having to do that is bad.

I did, however, type /wdw rel and to my great surprise did *not* get disconnected. However, /wdw hid does nothing that I can see. For now, I've got it moved to the side, and will move it more central when I need to use it. I know you said it's having issues with WoD, so I'm not mentioning the bazillion 'attempted to do something during combat' errors I'm finding.

I did realize that I was *still* in combat, through the reload and being away from the combat dummy in my garrison. I ran a bit farther toward the center of the garrison, and suddenly had a rectangular translucent grey frame with nothing in it, covered by a slightly wider, full-height-of-my-client translucent grey frame with a green bar across the top, which, when hovered over, gave a tip "skill in archaeology". THese two were covered by swatter actually popping up an error window that had complaints about WDW again, and about Archy trying to use a library included in Postal. Confusingly enough, I have archy turned off on this alt.

I could dismiss the swatter box, and I could move the tall frame a little and found an X to close it, but the small rectangular frame is still on my screen, with no way to close it. Hitting escape does nothing to it. Screenshot of the final box here: http://imgur.com/Dsv8VK0

I am, however, finally out of combat.

Hope this is helpful, rather than confusing...

A very important question...

Never mind. When I went back in, it dragged quite politely. No clue why it didn't work the first time.

confused,
-Barleduq

<s>I installed this (and now need to turn it off on everything but my mage ) and I have one important question.

I keep getting lines in my chat that say, paraphrased, "you can now move We Don't Wipe!"

....

how? There are no placement options (that i can find) in the interface > addons > we don't wipe panes. Right or left clicking on the icons doesn't grab them to move them. Nor does doing that with any of control, shift, or alt. When I tried using combos of those three meta keys, I somehow managed to lose my screen and had to kill wow from the task manager to get it back. (I assume that was something with the OS, possibly moving it to a different workspace, but I couldn't find any other workspaces....)

Clue, please?
-Bar
desperate for some clue as to how to play a mage.
Especially as it was the "Free L90 Toon" from WoD...</s>

I can relate to using an old computer. I have old and new at home. WoW looks glorious the first time you see it on ultra settings (sorry lol). My 2009 iMac runs WoW just fine. Guess we're kinda brothers as at the heart of my Mac systems at home is unix after all!
Wow. How suckful. Commisserations all around. Let me know if you ever do start working on those, and I'll be happy to be a tester.

And you'd be surprised how many people don't know that OSX is unix - I saw on a website the other day, "Making it work for Windows was enough. Mac and Linux? Making it work for 3 operating systems was more than we want to take on." Glad to find someone with a clue!

The big big big disappointment for me with WoD was that WDW was pretty much totally broken. So my usual rush of enthusiasm at expansion start got totally used up just getting WDW to work. No energy left for the actual module updates.

(I work a 12+ hour day, 6 days a week so when I sit down at a computer at home I am already exhausted tbh)

WDW *still* causes a protection error BUT provided you ignore the error message at the start of combat, WDW will then function flawlessly BUT it is still distracting to players as they assume the AddOn is totally broken.

Presently I am nutting out how to get WDW up to date properly. More modules need to be updated. Maybe then I can consider Hunters, warriors and rogues.
