    There's the problem.

    The current Instant Potion itemID is 6947 (the old level 10 Instant Poison) .
    You got the old level 68 Instant Poison. Since v4.3 rev5, Poisoner checks for itemID rather then poison names. And the itemID '21927' simply isn't listed in Poisoner's database.

    You can change Poisoner.lua at line 11 from
    [6947] = "IP",    --Sofort wirkendes Gift
    [21927] = "IP",    --Sofort wirkendes Gift

    Doing so will make Poisoner recognize your 'deprecated' (concerning Cataclysm) Instant Poison correctly.

  • #380

    ok its  ilvl 68

    item id: 21927:0:0:0:0:0:0:762171131

    I even unloaded all my addons except Poisoner and Informant ( tooltip addon) to see if that make a difference - nope

    ok. The Button is not created. This means that your Instant Poison isn't recognized.
    Seems like your Instant Poison has another item ID than 6947 ...

    Please use a (ToolTip) Addon that can show itemIDs and lookup the itemID of the InstantPoison in your bags. 

  • #378

    ok after i type  -

    /run print(PoisonerMenuButton__IP)

    it returns -


  • #373

    A while back you mentioned maybe trying to add Shaman weapon buffs to this.

    Any progress?

    I use this on my rogue and would love to use it in the same way on my shaman, mainly for the popup expiring timer.

  • #374

    I had a working version for 4.2 but that was a quick 'transformation'.

    I thinking of a recode for shamans but I am not 100% sure if/when I will do so because my times low and CursorCastbar and OptiTaunt are still being rewritten.

  • #371

    Hello I just managed to change the .lua so that I can poison my thrown weapon with "Button5" on my mouse, however it doesn't seem to work with the Quick Button.

    Can you please direct me to what partin the .lua file I should change so that my mouse button 5 works with the Quick Button? Thank you sir.

  • #372

    You have to change the "button:3"-values in line 105 in .../modules/Poisoner_SecureHandler.lua .

    Thank you!

  • #367

    This is a glitch with Blizzard's UIDropdown menu and buggy secure variables.
    This bug was introduced with patch 4.3 and taints the UnitFrames and ActionButtons while blaiming AddOns in now particular order.
    I encountered this bug with AtlasLoot-Loader, Bartender, PowerAuras, Poisoner and many more.
    Until I change to Ace or use another DopDown functionality, we (the player)  have to live with Blizzard's 'fault'.

    The good thing is that this bug only appears if a player joines/leaves party/raid while in combat and only occurs sometimes.

    Hello, this is a great UI and i love it. However, it only shows 4 of my poisons, while i got 5 types.. how to solve this? thanks :D

  • #360

    as soon it is approved and ready for downloading.

  • #356

    Hello. I have a problem, a little incompatibility: Poisoner + DispelFrames = massive spam about "target has ENRAGE" in chat Frown There is a chance to fix it? Both of them is my favorite addons and I do not want to abandon them, but if I will have to make a choice, I will have to abandon the poisoner addon Frown

    ps this is a very annoying, because i play pvp mainly.

  • #357

    Change in Poisoner.lua @ line 200+
    print(uid.." has ENRAGE "
    --print(uid.." has ENRAGE " 

     This was for testing purposes only and should have been commented out. I'm sorry.
