Got an addon question, need a boss mode that shows timer for Sindragosa breath because doing frost infusion on hc. My dbm did not show any timers so failed 1st time. Heard there is add on dmx or dxe something like that but cant find it that has the breath timer. Thx
As well any advice on doing the q on hc would be great thx.

DXE has them, I'm fairly certain DBM dose to, but if you played with the settings you could have shut it off.

The three most common boss mods are:
Deadly Boss Mods (DBM)
Deus Vox Encounters (DXE)
Before switching boss mods however, you should verify that DBM doesn't actually support it already. Just because it doesn't do so by default, doesn't mean it isn't there. Many timers or alerts are supported but left disabled by default because they are considered to be unimportant information for the majority of raiders. For example, since a frost breath isn't likely to hit the 23 people in the raid not tanking, most wouldn't care to much when it is cast. Many boss mods support more features than are enabled by default.
I'm pretty sure all three support the frost breath timer, just not all of them have it enabled by default.
I know DXE has them. One of our people said DBM did not, or missed one or something, I dunno for sure I do not use it.
I just stood out in front of her and did not bother dpsing. Just stay out of cleave range. You can get 4 stacks usually quite easily in the first 2 cycles. We were doing the "All you can Eat" at the same time so I got a lot of practice LOL.

Anyone know if dbm has it the option? and how to turn it on? THX

It turns out DBM doesn't have an option for it, they have it hard code enabled if you are a healer or tank and anyone else can't use it. In order to fix that you would need to alter the source.
local warnFrostBreath = mod:NewSpellAnnounce(71056, 2, nil, mod:IsTank() or mod:IsHealer())
local timerNextFrostBreath = mod:NewNextTimer(22, 71056, nil, mod:IsTank() or mod:IsHealer())
Those two lines from the DBM-Icecrown\FrostwingHalls\Sindragosa.lua file would indicate that this warning is disabled unless you are a tank or healer. In order to override that you can modify the lua file yourself to replace those lines with these respectfully.
local warnFrostBreath = mod:NewSpellAnnounce(71056, 2)
local timerNextFrostBreath = mod:NewNextTimer(22, 71056)
It doesn't look like the DBM option to enable it by choice in this case. Since you only need to do the Frost Infusion once this customization you can simply let be overwritten the next time you update the mod. Basically you are just droping the ", nil, mod:IsTank() or mod:IsHealer()" portion of those two lines.

That or just download DXE or BigWigs for it and switch back afterwards. All you have to change in DBM to make it work is those two lines though and it doesn't hurt to know how to do that for future reference if you find yourself in a similar situation.
