Yet another DPS meter.

It can be made to work quite well. I especially like chat-tab integration.

Although it can be configured to be more simple, the fact that it's such a large/complex addon makes it vulnerable to breakage and not worth using.

FIXME - The initial blink works, but the overlay does not.

Displays a Gears of War-style cog associated with character health. The more wounded the character, the more the cog displays.

  • Brings the remaining two bars to the right-hand side, and hides them unless your mouse is over that area.
  • Takes the blizzard stuff, and hides it in the bottom-right corner unless your mouse is over that area.

Replaces the spam of meters being posted in chat into a link which can be clicked for a popup of it.

Very very useful for de-cluttering chat.

While I use it, it does way too much.
