So, I have finally caved in and decided to give Grid one last run for its money. I have installed it, set it up, and have convinced myself to raid with it for two full weeks before making a decision on it. Thanks to Phae and Keeva, I was able to get my raid frames set up, with a minimum amount of cursing 😉
I have installed the following modules with Grid (note: this may be incomplete, but I will double check when I get home tonight!):
Grid Status Lifebloom
Grid Corner Text
Grid Status HoTs
Grid Mana Bars
Grid Status Raid Debuffs
Grid Status Res
I took the time to get it all configured and set up, and I’ve run two raids with it so far. One of the things that I like most about it is how it can display my HoTs right on each players frame. One of the things that I dis-like about it is how confusing it is to get set up, and I’m still not sure I’ve got it optimized in the best way =(
As a raid leader, it’s important for me to see EVERYTHING that is going on in the fight, I did however set my poison and curse priorities over the magic and disease priorities. I don’t know if this is the best way to monitor everything or not. Using Grid Status Raid Debuffs, I am able to see the debuff icon in the center of the affected frame. This is a HUGE improvement with Gridfor me, and one of the things that I didn’t like about the original GRID and kept me using a different raid frame.
I do, however, have a question for you Grid veterans! During the Yogg-Saron fight, it is not refreshing Mind Controls once they get dispelled, so I cannot determine who has had their MC cleansed, and who is still in need of a cleanse. Anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this? Additionally, I added “Sara’s Blessing” to debuffs for my center (where my raid debuffs show), but I am not seeing it show up in my frames, have I done it incorrectly?
Are there any nifty Grid Modules that I am missing that you think I should pick up? Any suggestions about settings that you might recommend?
