A mod for all seasons

Common problems in wow and the mod to solve that problem

Killing your raid by standing in the crap? People dying because you couldn’t get a heal off in time? Miss picking up an add because you are looking at your spells and didn’t see the add until it had already eater the hunter? Whatever problems you are having, there is a mod to solve it. This post is about all the problems I’ve had as a die hard raider who has played since beta. More importantly, this post is how to solve them with a mod.

Problem                                                                   Solution

Healers standing in the crap because they are looking at heal frames. Get healbot and move the window right up beside you. You can see both your frames and what you are standing in. It’s easy to stay alive when your eyes are focused on the middle of the screen where all the action is.
Dps standing in the crap Weakauras and then hotkey your spells. Move the auras up beside your character.
Tanks missing an add Weakauras so you can keep track of your cds.
Tanks dying with their personal cds unused Again…weakauras or at least hotkey your spells. Look online for the string you need for your particular class of tank.
Low dps Bitten’s Spellflash or weakauras. Hotkey your spells
Cluttered Interface Elvui will allow you to move, resize and make certain non crucial aspects of your interface invisible or only visible when you hover over them. There are a lot of interface mods but this one is the easiest to use IMO.
Always Broke Use your farm and sale surplus mats, then get auctioneer and auctionator to make it easy to find out prices and make it easier to post multiple options. You can also go to wowuction and find some good deals.
Tired of leveling different toons in exactly the same way every time. is a good leveling guide. Also, it might take a little longer, but consider questing on a different continent. Either way, you will get a different experience while leveling up.
Tired of playing the same toon but can’t switch Incorporate new spells and abilities into your playing. Very few people use all their spells to the maximum potential. Adding even one overlooked spell into your rotation can improve your playing and renew your interest in your class.
