A DPS maximiser. Displays a sequence of icons from left to right, representing the order in which you should use your abilities so that maximum DPS may be achieved. You 'plug in' modules for your class/specialisation into a single AddOn, ensuring a consistent and familiar interface across the range of your characters.
This file is a module for the We Don't Wipe AddOn. Included with this download is the very simple procedure for adding this module to We Don't Wipe.

General Rotation Notes
Rotations written by Taraezor will typically not tell you to use an ability immediately when it procs (i.e. gets a golden border around it in your hot-bar due to the ability getting a sudden damage bonus). The rotations are about maximising your DPS and not merely playing competently with passable DPS.
Sometimes, if you are unable to follow the rotation closely, certain abilities will just not be suggested in the queue. This is probably because preconditions to establish optimal use of the ability were not met.
(It is possible to exclude abilities from a rotation, and yet still display their CD/availability.)
Notes Specific to the Windwalker Monk Module
The module is very good at meticulously managing Chi and in ensuring that you have Chi available for when an action has just come off cool down. The Ascension talent is allowed for!
Blizzard do not provide a way for AddOns to know how much Energy an action will cost at the time of wanting to use that action. This author would need to keep a table of abilities using Energy and then manually update/check the table each time Blizzard issues its weekly patch. Yuck.
Do not show more than six icons in the queue at once. Up to 10 are possible in WDW but doing that will surely eventually result in the Blizzard server issuing an error message for taking too long. You'll never notice this error if you have turned off LUA error notification and regardless of this, WDW will continue on, hardly missing a beat.
I encourage others to suggest their own ideas, perhaps even upload your own module if you have some LUA skills. I am happy to assist.
