I’ve been digging around looking for some sort of buff mod that doesn’t require I paint all class with the same Blessing. While this might make sense in a raid scenario (in which case you might have multiple Pallies buffing the same buff on the whole raid), it’s a pain in the ass when dealing with a group.
There is no one ‘right’ Blessing for any given class. There are some that are ‘most likely’ desired by that class, but you never know.
Druids – Resto and Boom will want BoW while Feral will want BoM or BoS depending on whether they’re DPSing or tanking.
Shamans – Resto and Ele will probably want BoW while Enhancement might want BoM.
Warrior – Arms/Fury will probably want BoM while Prot might want BoS.
Rogues – Are pretty easy, they’ll generally want BoM.
Mages – Are pretty easy, they’ll generally want BoW.
Priests – Like Mages.
Warlocks – Like Mages.
Hunters – Like Rogues (though some might request BoW… heh /kick)
Paladins – Ret might want BoM, Prot BoS and Holy BoW… but then they have their own Blessings so they might want something else.
Deathknights – Unholy/Blood probably want BoM while Frost will love BoS.
Then there is Blessing of Kings – some people want this. Did I miss a class?
The ideal buff mechanism, IMO, would work like BuffZilla, which appears to be a little out of date and lacking a lot of finishing touches. I’d expand it the following ways:
- Add the ability to specify names instead of classes.
- Add a UI mechanism for specify the buff for the person (right click on their unit frame and pick it?)
- Allow it to distinguish between the user class so you don’t get presented with Paladin buffs if you’re a Priest.
- Add a means of storing these preferences for these people.
Is that a tall order?
I took a quick look at LUA back when I was playing WAR but didn’t have a chance to get too far with it. Maybe I’ll give it a look…
Bah, who am I kidding? I probably won’t have or make time for that…
UPDATE: ZOMGBuffs addon might be what I’m looking for…
