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

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.

Go into the BigWigs Mists of Pandas options maybe?

yes thats my question, I'm there already, I'm saying some abilities have more options than other, some have flash, some don't. how can I force flash on something that dont have the flash option is my question.

Hello,

Is there a way to disable the BW timer that shows the "remaining time to enter dungeon" after the queue pops for that dungeon? It isn't getting skinned with my BW skin, and I'd rather just not see it at all since that is the case.

The default Blizzard raid frames indicate who is in a phase. If your unit/raid frame addon doesn't do this, turn it on, or ask for it to be implemented.

BigWigs doesn't decide who should go in, that's up to your raid to decide. You can use the BigWigs AltPower display to help you see who has a lot of corruption.

The latest Big Wigs introduces a break timer. Try:

/break 5

for a 5 minute break timer complete with warnings. This will sync with the raid and also be sent to DBM users.

I'd say DBM is more CPU use because of its animation bars but I'm nur shure.
BigWigs dosen't have timers for doungens and mobs (there is a LitleWigs version for it) thats one of the reasons I like bigwigs more then dmb

I'd say it's more user-friendly, more customizable (I tinker with the individual boss fights a lot depending on my role) and has a better GUI.

My favorite part of it is the plugin support.

Try it out and see if you like it, if you don't you can always switch back.
