NextUp 1.2.4 for WoW 5.2 - Now with balance druid support
1.2.4 adds support for Balance druids. Check it out and let me know what you think.
1.2.3 brought updated priorities for all dps specs and especially the Rogue and Shaman specs was improved. NextUp now helps them manage damage cooldowns. For rogues it also helps pool up energy before certain abilities are used.
See the change log for more details.
As always, feel free to PM me any bug reports, questions or suggestions you might have.
NextUp helps the player with in-combat decision making by showing the player three icons:
Shows the recommended ability to use next global cooldown for maximum DPS, based on:
- which abilities are on cooldown
- the player's current resources (Combo points, holy power, runes, mana, rage, energy, runic power etc.)
- buffs on the player
- debuffs and DOT:s on the target
The Priority icon ensures that the player gets maximum uptime on their buffs, debuffs and DOT:s.
NextUp's priority lists are not my own design. They are gathered from up to date guides on sites such as Simulationcraft.org, IcyVeins.com and ElitistJerks.com. I trust their thorough testing and theorycrafting to provide the best priorities for each spec.
Shows the player's interrupt skill if their target is casting an interruptable spell. The interrupt icon also shows other skills that are not on the global cooldown, such as a warriors Heroic Strike.
Reminds the player of missing self buffs such as shaman's Lightning Shield or a druid's Mark of the Wild. The Reminder Icon is also used for some cooldown skills in combat. It does not show longer offensive cooldowns like Heroism or defensive cooldowns such as Survival Instincts though, as they might be needed for certain phases of boss encounters.
Combo point indicator
The combo point indicator is located below the priority icon and shows blue dots representing the players current amount of combo points, holy power or maelstrom weapon stacks.
Use "/nextup" or "/nu" to access the settings.
"/nextup toggle aoe" switches between the single target and the AoE priority lists. Macro this command to an actionbar button for maximum ease of use.
Currently supported specializations
Unholy Death Knight - For all DK multi target fights: Spreading diseases is not covered by NextUp.
Frost Death Knight
Blood Death Knight - NextUp does not (at least not yet) keep track of how much life every Death Strike will steal. Use your own judgment.
Guardian Druid - The Faerie Swarm talent has some dodgy behavior for all druids. Avoid if possible.
This addon is in development and will be updated frequently. The latest version can always be found here on WoWinterface. The current version only supports a few specializations, but the goal is for NextUp to be usable by all damage dealing specs including tanks, so if your spec is not in the list, check back soon.
I don't have a max level character of every class, so I can't test all specializations myself. If you have a Hunter, Warlock, Monk or Warrior at max level and would like to help me beta test NextUp, send me a PM.
