BigWigs Bossmods  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r12226
by: funkydude [More]

Big Wigs is a boss encounter add-on. It consists of many individual encounter scripts, or boss modules; mini add-ons that are designed to trigger alert messages, timer bars, sounds, and so forth, for one specific raid encounter. These encounter scripts are activated when you target or mouse over a raid boss, or if any other Big Wigs user in your raid does. In most cases only one module will be running at any given time.

If you're looking for boss encounter scripts for 5-man dungeons, these are not in Big Wigs, but live in their own add-on; Little Wigs.

Hello, i have a small issue with BigWigs, it does not show me fixates on other players except myself, on the Omnotron Defense system. Am I doing something wrong, i see no option to toggle showing fixates on other people. The previous version used to show them just fine, but this one only shows it if its on myself. This is important because sometimes the oozes fixate on tanks and those should be killed first.

Thank you in advance

Suggestions

Hello, I have some suggestion about this great and useful addon:
  1. Is it possible to let the user choose at how many stacks the alerts are displayed ? Actually, BigWigs choose itself the stack amount but it does not always match our raid strategy (it is ok when the alert begins too soon but it is problematic when it comes too late ^^)
  2. Is it possible to add a link to abilities names like in DBM ? (when you put the mouse cursor above the ability, the ability tooltip is displayed)
Thanks !

I believe you'll find SimpleBossWhisperer, made by one of the authors of this addon, will do what you want. It's posted here, newer version on wowace.com.

Stupid question, but I just don't find it.
Would it be possible to add a Simple whisperer module (whisp HP of the Current Boss, when somebody whisp us during an encounter ?).
I tried to find an addon stand alone doing this, but outdated (except DBM, but I prefer BW).

It's enabled in the general BigWigs options
I've got the following BigWigs folders in my addons folder:

BigWigs_Coliseum
BigWigs_Core
BigWigs_Options

It should Flash/Shake when it's on you, I'll check if Blizz broke the trigger in 3.3.2. Did the warning/bar work?

I'm not seeing a Flash 'n' Shake on Blood Queen's Swarming Shadow ability.

Got everything enabled in BigWigs and I don't have nameplates up.

Why am I not seeing it?

Nope, you never have to reset it.

Well, I think once, back when the mod was quite new, I had to reset it.

The only time you have to reset it is if it somehow loses the timing and thinks you're in a fight you aren't in.

Raid Warning Font

Is there anyway to change the Raid Warning Font style? Thanks for the great AddOn!

You can make an account on wowace, get an svn client like tortoisesvn, and upload it yourself like all the other translators.

Saw this app and it looks easy to use and set up, my question is;

Do I have to reset the addon every time I log in to get it to work?

I have yet to even see it work aside from the test feature. Mind you I've only tried it in one of the new instances .. but just curious cause I didn't reset Big Wigs when i logged in
Thanks in advance for your reply.
No, it keeps your settings from one log-in to the next. The reset is only if the very rare bug occurs that the timers don't reset themselves after a wipe or killing a boss. (I've only had it happen twice after +8 months of using the addon.)
