Status: Flagged for Future Version
As a feral druid, I'm definitely interested to know how long that root is going to last, but I care not about the slow which I can remove whenever I decide I have a free GCD to burn. Silences are a non issue, and something I will actually try to draw on me when I can so that it's wasted and not used on an actual caster.

What I'm getting at is that there needs to be more types to simplify configuration. Making a research to find every single root in game and filter them out could take a while.

Suggested types:
-Stun
-Incapacitates
-Slows and snares
-Roots
-Silences
-Dots (most won't care about this, but it's useful to know in my case so that I don't try to re-stealth before that dam dot is done with)

I'm sure I forget a few, you guys probably know your spell types better then I do.

I also noticed that Forte Exorcist is quite good at filling out the blank once I start typing a spell name. Does it have an internal built in spell list already? If so, it would be very interesting to group em by class / boss, come up with a default configuration based on the class. It would save a lot of research and make the config much more user friendly.

I'll make another quick note. Currently, Forte Exorcist has 4 options for specific spells which are filtered. Show, Hide, Show and Color, Color. It would be nice to add another option, Use Default Filtering for those times where you don't want to remove a spell from the list but want it to temporarily use the default filtering options just like any other spells of it's type.

Ah, nice, just read the log. Are those available as betas? I'd be willing to give it a swing and report bugs as I go along.

Dots.... I'm thinking about it and that wouldn't be nearly as useful as a *safe to re-stealth* indicator....

"Use Default Filtering for those times where you don't want to remove a spell from the list but want it to temporarily use the default filtering options just like any other spells of it's type." That's what 'None' (and 'Color') is there for. It's just that spells set to 'None' get hidden from the list.
