Hands up! Who can tell me what fundamentally important aspect of a UI is missing from this screenshot?
Hint: Compare it with the images from this post.
We initialized a pull on Freya and on the first wave of Detonators, my client crashed.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m offline!Ã¢â‚¬Â, I grunted.
Closed the WoW client and restarted it again. Managed to load back in and what did I see? No raid frames. Some of the officers utilize the oRA2 keyword invite option. I whispered the appropriate word and was told I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be invited due to combat. Duh, I forgot. My raid frames still hadnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t shown up. I panicked and did the only logical thing that made sense.
I activated friendly name plates.
Normally I have name plates disabled. I even unbound my hostile name plates so I could use that key for something else. Thank goodness I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t unbind name plates. It wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t exactly the ideal set up but the encounter became even more like whack a mole.
Except this is advanced whack a mole.
Where the moles will only appear within 15 yards.
And theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re moving all around.
So just a quick lesson. If your client is unable to load raid frames for whatever reason, name plates is the plan B followed by a quick prayer.
