About BossTactics

BossTactics improves and simplifies explaining boss tactics in World of Warcraft.

***Looking for coders to assist.*** Would like to bring this back

Knetik (aka Czarknetik) has taken over this addon in an attempt to keep it going. This has been a great addon that has helped many guilds to simplify fight strategies and setups.

Sorontur's final statement before handing it off

After over 5 years of WoW, it is time for me to end my time ingame. It was really a great time, raiding with so many friends and achieving so much. Cataclysm is really not what WoW used to be, so this is a good point to stop this. But this also means, that i will not continue my work on BossTactics. I put really much effort in it and I hope you have had lots of benefits. I tried it in 4.2 and there where no lua exceptions for me, so maybe you can use it for a while until Blizzard again changes the complete API. Maybe someone likes to continue the work, feel free to do so, just send me a message on curse and i will grant you permissions.
So this is my good bye to you! Have a good time in Firelands. Sorontur

Localization

If someone likes to add language support to BossTactics you can post the locales here: http://www.wowace.com/addons/boss-tactics/localization/. The strategy texts are too big for this feature so there it cannot be used.
