About BossInfo

BossInfo



BossInfo is an addon used to provide a simple overview of Boss fights and encounters. The information is broken down into section for Tanks, Healers and DPS.

Information is written for the Heroic Version of Instances and the Looking for Raid Version of Raids.

Using Bossinfo to see Boss Encounter Information is easy. Simply choose a Boss from the pull down menu or target the Boss and press the Target Button.

BossInfo also has the ability to send an overview of the Boss Encounter to your Party/Raid/Instance Group. Simply choose the Boss from the menu or target the Boss and press the Target button and then press the Party Button to send the overview to chat.

To access the addon, simply click on the icon; or use the slash commands /bi or /bossinfo

You can now click 'About' and then 'Party' to send a message to your party, telling them where they can download Bossinfo :)


All Feedback and Suggestions are Welcome.

Recently Added


Version 1.8 (12/1/14)



- Bug Fixes.

- Right Click BossInfo button with a boss targeted to open BossInfo to that Target.

- You can now press Escape to close the BossInfo window.

Version 1.7 (12/1/14)



- Moved the About Button to the top.

- Added Next button where About used to be.

- Next button can be used to show the next Boss in the instance without having to go find them on the menu.

- Changed the order of some of the menu items to line up with the order of bosses in the instances.

- Fixed the Target button for bosses that have multiple bosses.

Version 1.6 (11/29/14)



-Fixed improper names displayed when sending info to party in Upper Blackrock Spire

Version 1.5 (11/26/14)



- Updated for 6.0.3

- Added Bloodmaul Slag Mine
- Added Iron Docks
- Added Skyreach
- Added Auchindoun
- Added Grimrail Depot
- Added Shadowmoon Burial Grounds
- Added The Everbloom
- Added Upper Blackrock Spire
- Added Blackrock Foundry
- Added Highmaul

- WOD dungeon encounter information is linked directly to the Dungeon Journal. Kind of lazy, I know, but the details they provide and very useful.

- Removed the ability to hide Tank, Healer, DPS sections. This part of the code was causing problems. If people really miss it, I'll look at adding it back.

- No information for Mysts of Pandaria. I didn't play much during this expansion. Adding all the old strategies at this point is not something I feel like doing. I'll probably get around to it someday. In the meantime, if anyone has strategies they want to share, email them to me through curse and I will add them.

- When you announce the information to the party, it will now send the information to the correct chat (Party, Raid, LFG, LFR, Instance Chat). If you are not in a party, it posts it in Say.

    There are some fight updates w/ the recent 4.0.6 patch, was wondering if the info would be updated soon...
  • #46
    I like this mode, but if you can put in the function to select normal or Heroic, it will be really nice! when i link the fight on the chat the heroic description fight is link on Normal cata dungeon ty !

    Looks like a great mod. A suggestion, possibly have a "simple" or "detailed" explanation for each boss. Like the Lord Obsidius example above might take a bit long to read and absorb, especially in your typical impatient team. It could maybe be summarized: Tank: the adds interfere with healing, have dps kite if possible. DPS: kite the adds, they block healing on the tank with their debuff. etc....Also, does the mod allow you to edit the descriptions / instructions? That would also be very handy as I could summarize / phrase it in the way that I like.

    Any chance of tossing in ldb and the ability to hide the button, so we can use the ldb plugin to access it instead?
  • #43
    Awesome Addon!!

    Can you make a /command or hotkey to auto spam out the info of target boss to party?

    Wishlist:
    Add spell links of boss
    Add loot links of what boss drops

    Thanks

    Hey Nerino... It could be nice if you could make Heroic tacts too... :)
  • #41
    Great addon; thank you!
  • #40
    Killer adddon, used it last night in my guild's run of Grim Batol, worked great!
  • #38
    I logged in for the first time ever just to thank you for making this addon. Great idea, if you need any help on it let me know. I"ll learn Lua just to help on this one haha. I pug a ton, a freaking ton, as a tank (I'm masochistic, I guess), so this helps speed my explain shit ramble. (why has no one thought of this before)
  • #39
    I was also surprised to find nothing like this.

    You don't have to learn lua to help. If you have a better way to do any of the encounters or tips i missed, i welcome your input.

    I also want to expand and include the raids, so i need to start gathering information on those encounters.

    If you would like to contribute anything you can email it to [email protected]

    Thanks for taking the time to create and release this add-on. It's a real help in running some of the new Cataclysm dungeons!
  • #37
    I am glad you like it :)
  • #34
    You posted on Jan 06 you was doing an update that day. I don't mean to be rude or anything. Just wandering if you posted it with a new name or something.
  • #35
    I went to upload it and noticed a bunch of things that still needed changing and then work got in the way. However i have just uploaded the file to curseforge. So, as soon as it gets approved it'll be here. Sorry for the delay.
  • #30
    Is there any way you could fix it so that FULL info on boss gets posted to party and not only a part of it, or even sometimes something totally different then it says in info?
    For now RobBossMod wins with clear explanation :-)
