I've tried pretty much everything. I missed /ion blizzbar. I'll just have to settle with that and macro it.

Thanks!

Thanks will try this. I have keybinds 1-10 that i would like to use and its set to an existing bar.

Anyway to get this "new bar" to use those keybinds or have my existing bar only show up when I am in one of those modes (as it contains stuff i dont need to see otherwise)

Thanks

EDIT - Never mind I think its working now all I did was change my existing bar with the keybinds I wanted to have the same associations as the new bar and make sure to keep it hidden that way both are considered vehicle, possess, overide yet only one shows and only when I have something going on that is required

It sounds like you need to make a vehicle bar. Create a new bar with 10 buttons and open its settings menu. Under the states tab check the vehicle, possess , and overwrite options. Now when there is an event that spawn custom buttons they should appear on the new bar. I know that this works for me for Farming, the ICC jousting, and other things that cause the Blizzard vehicle UI to appear. I haven't done ji'kun as the nest group, but if should work the same if it uses the vehicle UI.

I don't like bartender as I hate having to rely on the regular blizzard macros but I am concerned about longevity I have a good 3-4 alts that I play and it will take a lot of time to set up their keys on a different addon or whatever so I want to make sure that if I switch its to something I like that is comparable

I have the most up to date version. Doesn't matter if I'm in a group or solo. Every single time I hit Soulburn while in combat that error pops up. Anyone else?
If anyone else has this issue, turn off Spell Alerts.

edit: Well I thought that had fixed it. But in SoO last night it started doing it again. Not sure what the issue is.

Re: RE: Ion 5.4/5.5

I played WoW yesterday with my Ion setup, and it doesn't appear that anything is (more) broken with 5.4. Ion was still a work in progress when MoP came out, so you'll find it's not quite as feature rich as Macaroon! (no character profiles, for example), but it's still better than anything else out there in terms of flexibility and macro handling. You'll want to turn on Dual Spec for all of your bars, as that seems to fix an issue with using macros and having them not be saved to a button.

Biggest headaches for me with Ion at this point are

(1) when I go to ICC (still want that mount!), I can't "Vampire Bite". No action bar button changes to show the spell, it doesn't use the extra action button, and using the macro I got off wowhead also doesn't seem to work.
(2) I just went balance for off-spec on my druid, and moonfire icon changes to sunfire even though they're two different spells now. There's a DIY fix at http://t.king.wowinterface.com/porta...bug&bugid=7799.
(3) no per character profiles.

Last I'd heard, Maul is super busy with RL and looking for someone to take over the addon, but no one seems to be willing (I for one don't know LUA/programming). In the past, he has at least fixed anything majorly broken by new patches, but I think it's safe to say new development is not in the picture, so if Ion doesn't do something you need it to, it's likely not going to.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

I'm currently using Bartender4 and it's not anywhere near as good as TrinityBars/Macaroon!/Ion. Do we know yet if Maul is going to update this? Bartender4 kind of works but it doesn't do half of what I need it to and is a pain for my Hunter alt and her pet bar (just to name one problem). I can't tell by the comments if this addon still works or not. I don't want to download and configure it only to find out that it goes all fubar in combat or on reload. I honestly can't find another bar addon that comes close to this one.

My internal dialogue during UI configuration:
Me: 24 buttons per bar for 3 bars! And a 15 button pet bar for my Hunter alt too please!
With Bartender4: I can't let you do that Dave...
With Macaroon!: Of course! Would you like fries with that and maybe a chocolate shake with a cherry on top? We can super-size that too! On the house!

Kind of sad when I think about it. Macaroon! used to run laps around the competition. I'd hate for it to die for good.

Re: 5.4?

Yeah I mean exactly just let me know cuz honestly I have a bunch of toons I'm gonna have to redo on something other just wondering what's gonna let me just do the macros the way they are now... blah

No one here some of the elite authors can whip something up with what was left of Ion ?

Thanks.

Hmm

Anything else out there that is being worked on that gives me the macro barmod functionality ? That is the main thing I like.

Another issue I have is that if i have the blizzard bar turned off whenever I do crap like farming and some bosses it will crap out... some no matter what i do wont work. (Amber Shaper fight)

Thanks! Really love this one and like it but don't want to have to worry its gonna not work next patch want a back up and i hate bartender

I use BetterExtraActionButton http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/betterextraactionbutton. you can toggle when the button shows, can remove the art from around it, skin the button with Masque and move the button where ever you want.
I installed this addon, but it doesn't show the button as well.
So I have to guess - each time nothing works in quests ...hm...maybe it's extraactionbutton?

Isn't there a workaround how to fix?
