Helium 2.1.1 - Bug fixes

Helium 2.1 - Update to WOW 7.2
- Removed legacy morph spell code
- Removed legacy trap launcher code
- Code clean up
- Reworked Rogues stealth bars to use the stance setting. This should allow them shadow dance to change bars correctly. This change will probably result in lost old style stealth layouts.
- Added a Shadow Dance bar state for Subtlety rogues when using the "Stealth" bar state. This allows for a separate Stealth and Shadow Dance bars to be used. Users can opt to remap the Stealth bar to the Shadow Dance state if they want a single bar state
- Fix for issue where dragging a item to the bar when the editor was open would overwrite the home state macro.
- Fixed issue where macro text would not clear between bar states.
- Fixed some issues with flyouts not generating correctly.
- Added flyout macro generator to the button editor window.

It looks like that is another ability that Blizzard broke with the patch. It looks like others are having the same issues when trying to use swipe in a macro. It sounds that you can fix the issue by changing specs instead of logging out.

Yes. Deleting the WTF will delete all you wow and addon settings. What version of ION are you using? There was a bug in one version that causes some of the bar settings not to appear.

It looks like it is could be a problem on Blizzard's end with those spells. Based on this post it looks like the game is having issues with the diffrent spec versions of the spell. Which would explain why the /cast does not work, and as that is the command ION uses to cast spells, it also explains why ION does not work for those spells also.

Yes. I was on the PTR this weekend and so far it does not look like anything broke, so baring anything new, I should be able to get a new version shortly after the patch hits.

Noticed an issue when *leaving* stealth; Ion swaps to stance:2 which is also the state for vanish (gives 3 sec of 'improved stealth') as well as subterfuge's stealth-expanding state. There is no pure shadow dance stance number.

Mapping, as far as I understand:
Melee: 0
Normal Stealth: 1
Vanish / Subterfuge / Shadow Dance: 2.

Subterfuge exists as a talent choice for both Assassination and Subtlety. Shadow Dance is only available to Subtlety.

This is blizzard being extremely wacky. Subterfuge is useful for in-combat stealth shenanigans. Improved stealth mechanic from Vanish (which may overlap / run simultaneously with Subterfuge) may be useful for a fast gettaway as well as say a quick sap.

Thus stance:2 can basically warrant 3 different scenarios: combat, semi-combat and non-combat.
Where each scenario can be mapped to each ability use as follows:
Shadow dance: combat, semi-combat -- attempting to DPS or CC
Subterfuge: combat, semi-combat, non-combat -- attempting to DPS or CC, or caught in the open
Vanish: combat, semi-combat, non-combat -- attempting to DPS or CC, or flee.

Vanish into DPS is a normal activity for all 3 specs (Legendary grants a benefit, as well as talent-related or spec related bonuses from granting stealth and/or access to stealth abilities or effects).

ref: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20748635409


Situation with Ion as of the latest .zip posted down below; Example with Outlaw:
https://cdn-e1.streamable.com/video/...dd68f58fede066

There is a flicker of a moment there where no bar shows up. This I assume is because I have not set up a bar for stance:2, and for some weird reason, you enter stance:2 for a short moment when leaving stealth, even without Subterfuge talent.

I've given you a nightmare. Sorry. Welcome to rogue, though.

So a heads up.
Thanks for the heads up. I'll try to get on the PTR and see what's up.

Just pushed some updates to Github https://github.com/SLOKnightfall/Ion/archive/master.zip

This update has a separate bar state for Shadow Dance as requested. It is available by selecting the "Stealth" state in the bar options when in Subtlety spec. Once you have set a bar to haveing the stealth state, you can set the Shadow Dance bar by turning on the Button Editor Mode, right clicking on a button on the bar to open the properties window, and then selecting Shadow Dance in the list of bar states. Then you can just set the abilities as normal.

If you want to just use your Stealth bar layout when Shadow Dance is triggered, you just need to open the Bar Editor mode, right click on the bar to open the properties window. In the dropdown with the title "Primary State to Remap", select "Shadow Dance" and in the "Remap State To" dropdown select "Stealth".
Once you do that, ION will use the Stealth layout when you are cast Shadow Dance.

That is most appreciated. Thank you for your continued support of this brilliant addon!

This bit is an overly discussed topic, actually. Went on for pages on the Legion alpha / beta forums. Shadow dance <-> stealth is not necessarily the same character action state. The abilities and keybinds one person may want available in stealth might be different from what that person might want in shadow dance, whilst another person may want them to be exactly the same. Having the option to separate them would thus be a benefit for those players who want them to be different.
