    No idea if this is being updated actively, but it doesn't appear to allow for tracking of Hellfire Citadel bosses on any difficulty.

  • #137

    I would like to make a request if you have time and can see your way to doing it.

    First if you could put in a section for the bosses for the mounts out here only the 4 Deathtalor, Terrorfist, Doomroller and Vengance. It would be very help full to know what rares i have done for the mounts i have been going counter clock wise its just easier to get from Terrorfist to Veng with the feather lol.

    The other thing is could you also put in the oil.

    Im sure you have thought of the oil already just not sure about the rares. Thank you so much for your time and you really have no idea how helpful this is to me, I wish i could right one that would help so many with there game lol just dont have that kind of know how with programing.

    I also run 11 toons lmao it sucks to have no life.

    Thanks again.

    Just curious if this addon will be updated to reflect everything in 6.2?  I run 11 toons so this makes it great to track everything!

  • #135

    dont know what is going on but its not working on any of my toons all the sudden what can i do or are you going to do an update ?


  • #134

    Gear grinder loads and works perfectly on all of my characters except one. For some reason it won't load for just one character. All of the characters are on the same realm, and belong to both factions. I tried uninstalling, deleting all the mod info everything I could think of but it still won't load the mod for this 1 character.

  • #132

    This used to work fine but now it will only show up for one character. I deleted the folder and reinstalled it but no change.

  • #131

    i love the addon, but there is one thing it's missing for me.

    Would it be possible to add a status for the garrison invasion?
    This is tracked with three questflags :
    37638 for bronze
    37639 for silver
    37640 for gold
    and each of them can only be done once a week per character.

    Thanks for all the work

  • #129

    Im having the same problem with it not working at all when is the next update coming out ?

    nice work on it. i do love it ty

  • #128

    Rukhmar id is 37464, not 37474.

  • #127

    Could we get an update?  It's not picking up Rukhmar kills.

  • #123

    Just a suggestion. Would it be possible to add into a future patch weekly invasion tracking? That would be pretty ballin.

  • #122

    Just downloaded the newest update and gear grinder totally stopped working. It no longer opens when I mouse over it yet i can still right click to set options. No error messages of any kind pop.

  • #125

    someone told me to purge the data and then relog into all toons. and you will see it.

  • #124

    yup same thing happened to a couple of us just reload an older one and wait to see if they fix it.
