Alot of people use addons to play the Game. Moonkin normally use the universal addon Squawk and Awe. This addon shows you the cooldown of your eclipses and shows when one procs. It also can show you:
Omen of Clarity Proc
Entangling Roots Timer
And much more!
Now, with 3.3.3 patch, the Spell ID for Solar eclipse seemed to break, because of this several people where asking for an update to Squawk and Awe. It came a few hours later but by then I had already went out and about looking for a new addon. Being the idiot I am in raids, I like to see everything that is going on in raid. Especially since I love to handle different roles.
Yes, thats right, Foofy has tank gear and loves to tank! So I love to see how bosses are tanked and what happens to them. As for healing, haven't touched that since Ulduar. However, with a tank set comes Kitty DPS. And I wont lie..I'm a terrible kitty. Which is why I wanted an addon that did both things for me just by allowing me to shapeshift.
Now, there is an addon called Feral By Night, which is very useful for Kitties, however I was spammed with nothing but errors when trying to get it. After an hour or trying to fix it, I just removed it. Then I remembered a post on TMR about a mod called Ovale. Alot of people had their own personal opinions about it as it tells you what to cast next. Alot of people hate this. But Feral by Night is the same way and I don't hear to many people complaining. Then again, the Moonkin Rotation isn't as complexed.
I had tried it out beforehand when the topic was made. I had problems configuring it, understanding it so when I did get it to work, I noticed a few flaws and decided not to use it. Now, I won't lie. If you are a starting moonkin, this addon will help you learn your rotation. Or if you are a raid leader and have several things to keep track of, this addon will help you.
If you are just a pawn dancing around the slimes in ICC and know your rotation like the back of your hand, this addon IS NOT for you.
Since Squawk and Awe was broken for me yesterday, I still had this addon installed, just disabled so I decided to give it a try again. Just something to show me procs. I used the button switch to tell me when eclipse proc'd and it worked wonders. I fixed a few configuration options to where it wouldn't tell me to clip dots. And the best thing is, I go into cat form and it automatically switches to feral for me.
I logged onto my rogue and it worked there too, as well as my warrior and paladin. Which made me smile. A universal addon that when configured correctly will work for you. But as I said, its an addon that tells you what to do and when to do it. THIS ISN'T FOR EVERYONE.
After doing so, my icons switch. Normally to IS, then MF, then to wrath. It will continue to show my wrath icon until Eclipse procs or a dot falls off. It caculates the time left on the target dummy with the dot compared to the global cooldown of your actions. So you won't clip if configured right.
Moving on, when you go into a feral form, it automatically switches its rotation for you. Of course, it seems to go by spec. So if you are moonkin, you may need to hit the target with a random move for the kitty bar to appear.
Off the bat it asks me to cast FFF (Feral Farie Fire) and where you see treants, would be mangle if I was Cat spec. But alas, both my spec's are Moonkin at the moment.
Q: Will I be using Ovale over Squawk and Awe?
A: Personally, I think I'll hold onto a bit more for now. Atleast until all these hardmodes are cleared.
Q: Any gripes with this addon?
A: A few, mainly the starfall and treants option with the second icon square, but other than that, I enjoy it.
Q: I'm new to being a moonkin, would you recommend this addon?
A: Yes, but be sure to configure it not to clip your dots. Clipping dots is bad.
