Beta...

Post by adianar » Fri Jun 27, 2014 1:06 pm

Anyone know about or can confirm when some basic addons will be available? I will download the beta later today, but I'm not independently crafty enough to succeed without some of them sadly. Appreciate the heads up...

Addons aren't usually enabled until very late in the beta process. This is to ensure that no addon's cause "unforeseen issues" with the UI, and the default UI gets fully tested. It will be a few months before they start letting the addon authors start updating their addon's.

Did we get any more Beta testers signed up today? Sound off if you are in.

There are some techniques to get basic addon support: But as Tinderhoof said, any feedback/errors you encounter with custom code loaded isn't very helpful to the developers.

I got an invite. Unfortunately I also have the bug where I can port over any character I want except my main so I have to slum it with a pre-made. =/

I don't have an invite yet but then they did say it was only the very first wave. I was one of the first to get into the Mists Beta, so I'm telling myself to be patient...

I've also got an invite - if you need help with testing anything or just to get some combat logs I'd be glad to help.
Unfortunately I only have access to premade chars since we can't copy over chars from EU servers, so no "old" items. On the other hand I can provide logs and test things on an english and german client if needed.

Yeah, default UI is almost the worst possible layout for important info during combat, Buffs top right, Debuffs top left, Ability Cooldowns bottom and then you in the center so that's 4 places you have to keep track of, lol.

Anyhow, I also got into beta.

You can move your faceplate and your targets face plate so it isn't as bad as it used to be. But ya having to look up for SR is lame.

Got an invite on Thursday. So far it's ok if you don't mind the constant phasing, lag and disconnects. Doing a quest and get dc'd? Log in back at your garrison if that's where you bound your hearthstone. If not then back to where your hs was before and yay for the trip back to shadowmoon or w/e.

Edit: /agree on having to look up for SR.

Yeah, I don't have much desire to actually play the game until addons are enabled. I just log on to test things.

Thanks for the info. I've played for many years, but only this time have I ever gotten into the beta, so I'm pretty green.

Our guild on Aerie Peak has a strong tank, 2 strong healers and a couple strong dps with invites currently, so I'd open up a general invite to any kitties who want to come and show me up! We'd be glad to have you or run down things a pretty non-techie kitty can track down.

Adianar#1546 is my battletag... just reference this site if I don't know you. I deny most friend requests I don't know where they came from...

THanks!

Thanks, been so long since I used the default UI I didn't even know about this. Yeah, that makes it quite a bit easier. Wonder if a simple addon could be written just to track sr/tf/berserk using the link raffy gave...

Does anyone have any video of some cat playstyle on beta?
Not looking for anything specific, just a cat biting and scratching on a dummy or boss.

It is effectively the same. I haven't bothered sitting on the dummies much just because OoC is bugged and is not consumed, meaning you basically have infinite energy since it just keeps re-proccing on dummies.

When they fix OoC i'll throw up a video

Tried to get something to work with those linked macros but apparently Blizzard is aware of that and /dump is disabled for players which means there's absolutely no way to run any custom lua code until we find a way to trick the client into thinking you're a GM (which would definitely be against the ToS, so... no thanks).

Maybe I'm missing something but why do you need to use dump? Can't you just change the first line to /run?

/run (and /script which is essentially the same) are currently disabled. If you try to do anything with those commands you just get the error message "Scripts are currently not allowed.". The first macro/line just abuses /dump to overwrite the internal functions RunScript() and loadstring() so you can get around Blizzard's deactivation of /run and /script.

I got mine with the first wave of Beta invites - Annapm on Echo Isles and Mekkatorque. I was unable to copy my main druid over, so I made a L90 template.

Hey guy's I have recently received beta. I also have links of addons that are working currently in beta for easy access. If it's okay with tinderhoof and the rest of you guys I'll post them in this thread. Also has anyone tried stacking multistrike via the new enchants. I did it this weekend and started rapping shit.
