Raiding with Ace AddOns

From WowAce Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Ace philosophy does not subscribe to putting everything needed for raiding into a single AddOn. Rather, we leave the choice of what to use for individual functions up to the users. This page describes options available, and categories of things you want to consider, when trying to build a collection of addons to replace e.g. what CT RaidAssist does, except more tuned to what you need and want yourself:

Raid Communication and Management

  • oRA2 by Haste, Ammo, others - A CT_RaidAssist alternative
  • XRaidStatus by Moonsorrow - Compact and configurable raid status window

Raid Attendance Tracking

  • HeadCount by Seppyk - Time-based attendance, boss kill and loot tracking (A CT_RaidTracker alternative)

Buffs

  • BlackSheeps v1 by Silverwind - Find the black sheeps in your raid!
  • FuBar - CorkFu by Tekkub Stoutwrithe - Track needed buffs, debuffs and more

Raid Frames

  • sRaidFrames by Saroz - CT_RaidAssist style raid frames
  • XRaid - Dark sexy raid frames.
  • Grid - Lightweight, flexible and intuitive raid frames

Boss Mods

  • BigWigs - Modular, lightweight, non-intrusive approach to boss encounter warnings. The most complete, improved and Acified CTRA_BossMods.

Emergency / Resurrection monitors

  • oRA2 by Haste, Ammo, others - A CT_RaidAssist alternative

Healing / Cleansing helpers

  • Clique by Cladhaire - Simply powerful click-casting interface
  • Detox by Maia - Live debuff display with priority, name and type filtering.
