What does this addon do?
BestInSlot will allow you to set your own Best In Slot list and share it with raid members and guild members for easy raid managing. BestInSlot also integrates in item and boss tooltips to quickly give users feedback if they need the item or boss.
What is the idea behind BestInSlot
In our guild we use EPGP as a loot system, but we found that sometimes people get items because they have the highest priority rating, but it's not their best in slot, while it is for someone else. With this reason we introduced that you're able to roll Best in Slot on items, and those that roll Best in Slot get the item over people that roll for main spec. Since there wasn't any add-on to properly track your Best in Slot list, I decided to make my own.
I got a comment / problem / suggestion with BestInSlot
Perfect! I appreciate any feedback that I get, be it positive or negative. You can post any general feedback on either the curse comment system. You may also contact me by sending me a PM on Curse. If there's something really broken in the add-on, I'd appreciate if you use the ticket system provided on CurseForge. You can create a ticket for BestInSlot on this page.
From Version 6.2.04, I'd also appreciate if you generate your suggestion or bug through the in-game Reporting system. If you can't access the BestInSlot GUI, you can also use "/bestinslot bug" or "/bis bug" to generate a report.
BestInSlot in your language?
This is of course possible! BestInSlot fully supports localization in other languages. However I myself am only fluent in Dutch and English and can therefore not translate it in any other language. If you want to help translation you can do that here: BestInSlot Localization
