Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.1: Damage Meters
I am the Icesnake and this is my Emporium.
Ever wonder what your Damage Per Second (DPS) adds up to? There are probably dozens of add-ons just waiting to tell you!
Skada Damage Meter is meant for the minmaxer who wants to know everything in detail. It’s highly modular, so you only use the bits you actually want.
Recount is the “traditional” DPS meter, keeping track of damage and heals for everyone in your group. Both Skada and Recount are very popular.
TinyDPS is a lightweight damage and healing meter. If you aren’t the raid leader, it may be all you need.
Show my DPS allows you to see only your own DPS. Excellent if you’re beating on the training dummies to fine-tune your rotation.
BxDPS is another lightweight meter, with the output nothing but a short summary in your chat window. This is probably the ultimate in simplification.
There are quite a few other options on both Curse and Wowinterface.com. Try several and see what meets your particular style of play.
If you have a favorite add-on you’d like covered, (and it’s not still in beta) just drop me an email at Icesnake DOT 1950 AT gmail DOT com or a PM on Twitter at The_Icesnake or Icesnake1950
If I review it, you’ll get a shout-out on the segment!
