The Poisoner Minimap Menu can be toggled while inCombat.

To do so, you have to click the FreeButton or use the keybinding which can be set via the WoW keybinging menu.

The MinimapButton (LDBIcon) can NOT toggle the Menu while in combat.

Poisoner is enabled by default for Rogues, and disabled by default for all other classes.

    I'm not sure when it started (after which event/patch/hotfix, etc.), but when I click the Free Button to apply my poisons, the little animation showing which poisons are applied only shows for my offhand weapon.  Both hands show up in the Buff/Debuff frame, but only the Offhand shows the green sparks animation anymore.  Any one else have this issue?

  • #480

    I am unable to use Slash commands to move the icons from the center of my screen. /poisoner freebutton only tells me it does not understand freebutton, or any other combination I can find of unlock. Can you put this in the menu please?

  • #479

    you never thought of adding an Interface menu ( Menu > Interface > Addons ) to the addon for those who disable the Freebutton but still want to easy option change without Chat commands ? :)

    For Azeroth !

  • #474

    I think the last update broke the warnings for poison. I have reset settings and am still unable to get any sort of notification when no poisons are active whether in combat or not. 

  • #475

    My fault, there was a typo in the OnUpdate-handling.

  • #470

    Poisoner does not recognize the new Instant poison combat rogues recv while levelling up in draenor, it replaces deadly poison.  It will apply it but it doesnt recognize it when checking for poisons and thus spams the warning endlessly.

  • #473

    Sorry, I totally forgot about that. Was too busy with other stuff.

    The fix itself is quite simple (as Alfador posted) and v6.0.1 should be available immediately.

  • #472

    I worked up a temporary solution for myself, may as well share it.   It  just involved tracking down the spell ID and adding it a couple places in the main lua file, lets it  recognize when instant poison from the prk is cast to stop the warnings

  • #471

    i also just noticed this. so far the only workable solution i've found was use oPie for application and weak auras for warning. someone smarter than me could probably easly hack the lua though.

  • #464

    This works with 5.3 right? I hope so - it looks awesome. :-) I have my poisons on my bar. Would be nice to clear up that handful of spaces without needing keybinds/macros!

  • #467

    RE: humfras

    Really? I assumed this was abandoned due to not being updated for two patches. I still use this addon, but the warning part of it is not working correctly. On both my Combat and Assassination rogues, I will NOT get warned that my poisons are about to run out/have run out more often than I do get properly warned. I can not figure out when this does or does not happen. I can be in a "resting" area, out slaying mobs/enemies or on my farm (and yes, I am very familiar with the option menu under wanings). When I think I may have a pattern figured out, I will get the opposite action. Love this addon, and no other matches up to it, but still very buggy. Thanks.

    Try the latest release (5.3 rev510).

  • #468

    hrmpf, that's strange. I haven't encountered that behavior when leaving/entering cities/instances, un/mounting, fishing etc.

    I'm going to level my rogue as soon as I find some time to actually play (need to update all of my AddOns, too). Maybe the I encounter those bugs.



  • #466

    The v5.1 versions should be working without any problems.

    If you encounter any, write a ticket on the curseforge site.

    Warns me on low-level rogues before I even have non-leathal poison to apply.
