Hello Control Alt WoW!
Sorry it has been so long! March was a surprisingly busy month at school between finishing the trimester, switching to all in person learning, and working with our robotics team to get their competition videos created and submitted.
I have only done a little dabbling with my main in WoW. Did some world quests, completed some of those daily thingies, found a new pet in a treasure in a weird area of Maldraxxus where this cloud causes you to take more damage and less healing. That was a little adventure!
Hope you all have been well and had a good holiday for those that celebrate.
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.
Addon(s) of the week: Fizzwidget Feed-O-Matic Classic
Makes feeding your pet quick, easy, and fun:
Bind a key to "Feed Pet", and Feed-O-Matic will automatically choose an appropriate food and give it to the pet whenever you press it.
Alternately, Feed-O-Matic creates a button next to the default UI's pet frame -- click this button to feed the pet.
Can use an emote to notify you when it's feeding your pet, with custom randomized messages. See FeedOMatic_Emotes.lua to customize them to your characters!
Helps you manage all the pet food in your inventory:
Keeps track of which foods your pet likes more, and prioritizes "better" foods when choosing what to feed the pet. Also makes sure not to use foods your pet has "outgrown" or foods not appropriate to your species of pet.
If you're on a quest to collect several of a certain item which also happens to be something your pet likes to eat, Feed-O-Matic can avoid consuming it. (Unless you're carrying more than is needed for the quest or there's nothing else for your pet to eat.)
Manages four major categories of foods: Conjured food (free if you befriend a mage), Basic food (just restores health; found at many vendors), "Well Fed" food (has bonus effects when you eat it; often comes from cooking), and Raw food (things that aren't edible for you, but are for your pet; often used as cooking ingredients). Feed-O-Matic looks for food in this order (Conjured, Basic, Well Fed, then Raw), to prioritize the food that's cheapest (both in terms of cost to you and potential usefulness). You can use the Feed-O-Matic Options panel to avoid feeding your pet entire categories of food, or to avoid just specific foods.
Feed-O-Matic keeps track of what foods are used by Cooking recipes. The Feed-O-Matic Options panel shows which foods are ingredients for which recipes, so you can choose to avoid feeding things to your pet that you'd rather cook for yourself.
All other things being equal, Feed-O-Matic will try to pick foods from smaller stacks, making sure your food supply doesn't take up all your bag space. When your bags get close to full, Feed-O-Matic will start ignoring other criteria and always choosing the smallest stack so that you won't run out of inventory sooner.
This broker is meant for those who don't use the standard unit frames and want to have an alternative way of monitoring their pet's happiness.
Icon: shows one of the three happiness faces or the feeding icon when the feed effect buff is up.
Text: shows the damage percentage and loyalty rate in numbers.
Tooltip: shows the damage percentage and loyalty gain in text, and your pet's diet.
