Ridiculously quick post from me today.
So there’s this bug where, if you dual spec whilst leveling, the spells/abilities/etc on your offspec’s bars don’t exactly update properly when you level.
I can’t even begin to count the number of people who got called out by RankWatch for this and flushed in embarrassment. There’s been blog posts, blog comments, threads on every single WoW forum and fan forum.
There’s a solution.
Little addon called “UpRank” that automatically scans your action bars and replaces any low rank spell with the highest level version you know. It works with Dominos just fine, so I assume it works with any bar replacement mod.

These are the addons that you, a mage, simply CANNOT function without. Am I exaggerating? Sure, but not by much.
Frankly, every single character in all of WoW needs this addon. Well, ok, any character that has ever done anything in a group, or warlocks, or hunters, simply MUST have this addon. A threat meter of some sort is absolutely critical in any kind of instance or raiding environment, very useful in any multiplayer activity, and Omen just happens to be one of the best threat interfaces around.
Omen runs off the Threat 1.0 library (which addons like Pitbull, Aloft, and Recount also use) . Omen has the distinct advantage that it is extremely customizable, and pretty. That, and its backwards compatible with KLH Threat Meter (KTM), and will share threat data with that addon. Please keep in mind that KTM is an aggregate threat meter, and is incapable of distinguishing between multiple mobs, whereas Omen can, provided the mobs have different names. As it stands now, with the way combat logging is handled, mobs can only be distinguished by name (supposedly this is being revamped in 2.4, let’s all cross our fingers). (more…)
