    SnowfallKeyPress

    Fairly new addon I wanted to share with you guys...

    SnowfallKeyPress (SnowfallKeyPress: WoWInterface) is an addon that makes your abilities activate on key press rather than key release.

    The author claims it's "similar to reducing your network latency by 100ms" and seems to be aimed more toward PVPers, but the benefit I've noticed is with weaving rage dumps and bloodsurge procs into the fury rotation more cleanly. In theory this should speed up any rotation, especially those that are GCD locked or have proc-based abilities.

    Is anyone else using it? I'm interested how other class/specs will benefit from it.

    I will be testing it tonight in my 25man ToC on a heavily keybound mouseover macro resto druid. =) I'll report my results.

    Works fine for my queued attacks, could be because it's bound to your mouse?

    From this page:

    SnowfallKeyPress : WoWInterface Downloads : Action Bar Mods

    Mouse Buttons

    SnowfallKeyPress accelerates key bindings of mouse buttons, but it doesn't accelerate mouse button clicks that interact directly with frames without any associated key binding. This means that although SnowfallKeyPress is compatible with click-casting addons like Clique and Vuhdo, it won't accelerate their mouse clicks. Vuhdo already provides its own mouse click acceleration, though, and perhaps Clique will at some point, as well. Until then, you can add support yourself by navigating to Interface\Addons\Clique, editing Clique.lua and CliqueOptions.lua, searching for instances of "AnyUp", and replacing them with "AnyDown".

    Mouse scroll-wheel bindings do not need any acceleration, so don't be concerned that SnowfallKeyPress offers no way to accelerate them. Each "tick" of the mouse scroll wheel is, in effect, already a simultaneous press and release.

    I'm uber late on this response, but this is amazing. I've been on the lookout for a mod like this since discord stopped being developed. That was one of my favorite features of discord.

    Hate to bump this but can anyone confirm that this works on 4.0.1? I checked out wowinterface and it looks like the author is working on a new version.
