I'm a bit frustrated and I think I'm gonna go back to my roots.
Grid, and a few extra grid modules for my raid frames.
Pitbull4 for target, focus, etc.
Clique for casting.
Decursive, just to try something new.
I'm thinking back to an earlier time, 2 yrs ago, when I wrote an old grid configuration post
. The gui configuration for grid looks good. It also allows for buff, debuff priority which is nice.
I have tried to use Pitbull for everything, but right now I'm not up to the task. Perhaps this compromise will get me closer to what I want. Change can be good.
Edit: I'm pretty happy going back to Grid. Debuff Priority is one thing missing from Vuhdo custom spells. I currently have my Pitbull4 target, etc just above my grid, but clicking stuff causes the target frame to change so things jump back and forth a bit. I think instead I'll make the tank my focus and move the focus frame and focus target above my grid, for easy smiting of the tank's target, without the flipflop that happens while healing and changing targets.
I removed decursive. It's redundant for me. The whole reason I started looking at grid alternatives a couple years ago was the quest for a simpler, fairly pre-configured environment. As with most things, simpler out of the box may mean less flexible down the road.
I like the current Grid options panels. It's really pretty easy (especially compared to the maze of options which is vuhdo). Priority on indicators means I can decide on a hierarchy of colors on each indicator. My border for instance shows dispellable debuffs rather than the my target border indicator if they exist. I can make things work exactly the way I want (a center icon and health bar turns red for a raid debuff, for example). I use side and corner icons for things like shields and renew. Countdowns and stacks show.
I'm having fun again. Funny how for a healer, getting what you want out of your raid frames, has a lot to do with your enjoyment. Edited, Mar 24th 2011 5:36pm by dadanox
