The add-on is built for the sole purpose of assisting DPS rotation of Shaman Class - Enhancement in this instance.
Having a passion for Blizzard games especially WoW, I decided to develop a mod for the game. Since WoW doesn’t have an open Editor like StarCraft, I decided to write an add-on / mod for the game.
To design an add-on for all players who wish to pursue damage dealer (DPS - Damage per second) role on a shaman in a dungeon or raid setting.
My chief 'design goal' with this project was to create an experience intuitive enough for guests to optimize their damage performance with the help of the add-on’s rotation assistance.
I had no experience with LUA and hence I started by buying a few books for LUA and World of warcraft addon creation.
Next I build a few prototypes to facilitate learning, following which with a descent grasp of the language I started studying already existing addons.
Finally I began writing for the addon itself. Currently it is on its 16th iteration. Still a lot of issues in terms of aoe dps and other things arent optimized to the fullest.
