    Or you could just use the same thinking that's in SOM/TOM, you buy the number of reagents you want, activate the gui and it counts the number and thereafter always buys enough of them when visiting a vendor that sells it.
    Imho that feels more logical and I really do love the thinking behind it :)

    On another note, why on earth are they selling party buff reagents each? For christs sake, at least make it into 5-stacks.

    posted a message on RAIDCOM
    This sounds sounds great, although I don't know how the MT target assigning works in CTRA, but I'm guessing it's using the CTRA channel... I'd say this needs to be supported, and for example given an event that can trigger a compitable raid frame addon (I'm supposing that's the best way to do it?). Same goes for various other information like the res-monitor.

    Basically if RAIDCOM would support/recognize every function that CTRA sends via the channel RAIDCOM would fit nicely as a "core CTRA", where you can easely add the addons and the functions you may need. And, just to mention it, I'd love to see Xraid modified to support it.

    Otherwise I don't think I have anything to add really..

    Well actually one thing, wasn't there talk about writing an ACE addon far more efficient than "Sky"? That idea could maybe be unified with this one, considering they'd probably use quite a few similiar functions?

    I've yet to find any raid frame AddOn that can show debuffs I can cure like CTRA does. I play a mage, I keep all 40 people's frames on my screen (I have them set to sit where the party frames are normally and have the party frames hidden when in a raid). Normally the frames are black, but if someone's cursed their entire frame turns a bright red. Oh, I need to cast Remove Curse. Done and done.


    Tried Needy List? Not any frames per se but imho a very good way to know what has to be done (debuffs/buffing/healing/ressing).

    ...To be honest that was pretty much what I originally suggested, although using the word "modular" instead :P

    And furthermore with the word modular I tried to include different addons, in the way that one could choose between for example XRaid or some other raidframe addon wich both work with/under the core of this... CTRA framework? Naturally I would want a rather "complete" set of functions to begin with, but my ultimate vision is that people could choose what to clutter their memory usage with, while still beeing able to use the advantages of CTRA.

    Hopefully I managed rephrase myself better this time :)

    I'm sure I'd love your implementation of a better ignore Rowne. One request if you do it, put in a "temp ignore" option. I find that in most cases I only use ignore to mute someone who's acting foolish, I don't really want to blacklist for the entirity of my gaming days. Back in FFXI I found that months later I'd party with someone and not realize for hours that the person had been on my ignore list for months.

    So yea, give us a temp-ignore list that's not saved across sessions :)



    ...That indeed happens in wow as well, so yes I'd very much like a tempignore as well, and for the permanent ignores say a reason has to be given, as an option.. err

    Let me rephrase, it'd be nice if you could have an option to automatically put one on the temporarily ignored list with just using say "/ignore somefool", but when a note/description is given it goes to the permanent list.. For example "/ignore somefool a shameless ninja stay away".

    So to summarize a temporary list and notes for the permanent ones would be very nice, implement it however you see fit :)

    Well anyways, that's just one more feature that is useful :P

    Feature list was what I was waiting to post. Even as I wrote that first post I was thinking of why they really "needed" ct raid. I'll get back to you :) Off the top of my head, I know they obsess over "ready checks" and commanders being able to put HUD text in middle of screen for directions.

    Well you don't really want any of your priests, druids or MTs AFK while you go at a boss, someone might've had to rush away without having time to write so in the raidchat.. There are probably a gazillion of things that could've happened. And thus a ready check is a nifty, spamfree, way of knowing that everybody is here and ready.


    As a healer I like the ressurection monitor. I'd like to see that expanded. I'd like to be able to see: Whose rez is in cooldown (druids), whose soulstone is in cooldown, who is soulstoned. As much comprehensive rez organization as possible. I've been told to battle rez someone before... and if they're soulstoned, they dont need mine. And indeed if I do cast battle rez while theyre soulstoned, the soulstone takes precedence. So they use the stone. but it still eats my rez cooldown too. That's crappy :)

    I'd also like some kind of healing organization. I'm not going to cast Healing touch if a priest is healing someone (unless theyre taking big ass damage).

    Maybe tracking how much incoming damage people are taking, estimated. Like, MT1 is taking ~500DPS, estimated time to live: 3 seconds. Triage help to know when there's nothing you can do to stave off damage on them, or get a big heal off quick enough, and just let them die and go on to the next one and save that 2 seconds of the 3.5 second cast that would have been wasted as they died.


    Those are some nice ideas, especially the ressing part, an innervate monitor would be very good as well. However CTRAs built in res-monitor I don't really use, NeedyList really takes care of all that stuff for me.
    Regarding the healing communication it sounds... like it could be hard to implement without a considerable amount of data beeing processed. Combat log wouldn't for example reach/be able to track in many cases, I guess I'd be willing to take that though, since at least some of my heals could be skipped.

    I think the core reasons for using CTRA is target assigning and the ready check. And those are two very nice functions indeed, espiecally the target assigning. It just saves so much text chatter and misunderstandings.

    I do understand why it's required, but I don't understand why it wasn't made modular from the beginning. And yes, as I said, I will probably move over to Xraid.. But I'll have to mess a bit with the code first :P
    My problem is really that CTRA loads so much I don't want, but due to those few functions that do make the raidleaders job easier we use it. And trying to get an entire guild to change system is a rather big task. Are there even any good alternatives?

    CTRA?! Yes! I don't just want it having an ACE dep, no, I foremost want it modular.

    Its raidframes plain suck tbh, I like (my modified) nymbias the most atm (showing deficit hp and using highlighting), and when I have some time I will probably remove the buffs from Xraid and use those frames in combination with AUF or watchdog, we'll see..

    The important thing is.. it has to be compatible with original CTRAs raid management, the MTs and their targets still has to be configurable by the raidleader, ready checks and everything else that's communicated via the CTRA channel has to be there. However mana conserve does not, neither does the raidframes (although I guess there has to be something in order to get the MT-thingy to work), or the buff/debuff handling.

    I guess it'd kind of be like a framework where you could choose wich frames you'd want to use, which mana conserve addon you like the most, if you'd rather use needylist, decursive or anything else... and so on.

    The idea probably needs some more work, but in general I'm sick and tired of beeing forced to use CTRAs raidframes for the MTs, an example of a good MT addon is vAssist.
    The core of this idea is anyway that you should be able to use what fits you and your class best, for the MTs themselves CTRAs MT frames are probably quite good, however as a healer I'd take vAssist over CTRA any day, just like I'd do with Xraid over CTRA. Only problem is of course the requirement of CTRA in guilds, and by the raidleaders, which I very much understand.

    If I would have had more lua experience/knowledge and more time I would certainly have a go at this.. But time, that annoying thing, is bugging me and I shouldn't even be by the computer by now, even less so on these forums *sigh*

    I've never noticed it, and I make sure I keep track of all the threads. I open every forum in tabs, then open all the topics I want to read in new tabs, open all the threads I want to read in new tabs, press the "Mark all as Read" button and go on reading.

    So yep, I read almost all the threads and keep very good track of them all and I've never seen this.


    That's actually exactly what I do as well. However sometimes when I reload the forum index I can clearly see that posts have been made since I last went through them all. For example the 1.8.3 thread was marked as read for me last night, despite me never having seen it before.
