    Hello :)  Ive been wondering if this might still work, even after so long of not being updated, so i took it on myself to install it and try it out...  I didnt get any error messages, at least none associated with this addon as far as i could tell, all seemed to go okay.  Thought perhaps tho that some of the math might be a bit out datted tho, I may end up looking into this myselff, but Im definately no coder... Aside from that, i always felt that this was a great looking and practical addon, kudos to the author :)

    Is there anyway to change the texture of the Runes and Runic Power bars?

    Great addon, i love it!

    For the people that want to have Soul Reaper in the timer bars, you need to do the following edit:

    - go in mRunes\Modules\Timers

    - find local Spells = {


    id = "Soul Reaper",
    spell = 130735

    An example how mine look (its just a part of the full list)

    local Spells = {
    id = "FrostFever",
    spell = 59921
    id = "BloodPlague",
    spell = 59879
    id = "Soul Reaper",
    spell = 130735
    id = "ScarletFever",
    spell = 81130,
    talent = {
    tab = 1,
    index = 6,

    Very useful and costumizable addon. Is there any way to implement global scaling for all modules? I'm use UI scale and all bars and font in this addon have a big size. Costumize every module is possible, but very hard. Need to set hight, width and font size for every module. Scale will be more useful for this scenario.

    I recently downloaded this and my default rune frame continues to reappear after any screen load. Other than that, it looks great and fits in my SpartanUI perfectly! 

  • #37

    Is there any way to configure the in-combat alpha of runes on cooldown?  Right now the only options are In combat, out of combat on cooldown, and out of combat ready (not on cooldown).

    Also, is there any way Dark Succor could be added to the timers (it's useful to know when leveling and you can always default it to off).

    Great addon, works well. I just have one issue with it.

    The Runic Power bar does not appear to update at the same frequency of your actual runic power. So the bar will show more/less RP than you actually have until it updates about 1.5 seconds later. This is just a minor issue I noticed while it was decaying in between mobs while leveling, but could be more problematic once taking into account Unholy Presence's reduced GCD and passive RP gains (T12 DPS 2-set).

    I also noticed that the Runic Power bar showed whatever RP I had left at the moment I left a BG, even though I was actually at 0. Could potentially be the same issue when exiting an instance.

    Absolutely, fantastically amazing addon! I've used DDR, CLC DK, Acherus Runes (I'm sure there's more, but I can't remember them all!), but I was never satisfied with any of these.

    This addon does EXACTLY what it should- it gives a PERFECT, customizable, elegant, lightweight, useful display of your runes and other necessary Death Knight trackers with intuitive representations of all the information needed!

    I personally have my other Death Knight info tracked with other parts of my interface, so I expected I was going to have to make huge changes to my interface or have to deal with bloat to shoehorn this into my interface- nope, the addon is modular! I simply disabled the trackers I didn't need and my interface was perfected.

    Thank you SO MUCH for your hard work on mRunes! I think I've finally found what I was looking for!

  • #34

    It would be lovely if I could also get my health above runic power

  • #33
    Hello. I recently switched to this addon now that DDR is no longer being updated and lacking a lot of important customization features. I absolutely love this addon and I am hoping to see it continue to be maintained. I am wondering if it would be possible to include a "seconds only" feature for all of the timers? I like the milliseconds on some of my timers but there are others I'd rather just have the option of having the timer set to display in seconds only.

    Also, are there any plans to add more customization to the rune display? Such as the "six pack" display, etc that a lot of other rune addons are now offering? Thanks creating this addon.
