DXE: Because BigWigs is a piece of shit, and so is your face.

This is an angry post that was sparked by some general idiocy and ignorance in the community (mainly from Drumstick).

If you're at all concerned about raiding, then you're probably going to be using a boss mod of some sorts. I'd wager that most of you reading this will be using Deadly Boss Mods or BigWigs. If this is you, stop reading now and go do this:

1. Open your World of Warcraft folder.
2. Click through to Interface\Addons.
3. Find your DBM/BigWigs folders.
4. Delete them. All of them.
5. Install Deus Vox Encounters.

I've just done you a huge favour. DXE is by far superior to the pieces of crap that are DBM and BW. Let me rattle you off a few reasons as to why.

1. DXE looks good. The bars are eye-catching and are pleasant to look at, unlike DBM and BW's offerings, which will lead to you missing important information because you were too busy steering your eye clear of an ugly bar.

2. DXE is completely customisable. If you don't want bars on your screen telling you the timer of X ability, or you don't want to be told who has Y debuff, you don't need to. This leads to DXE being more streamlined and less spammy than alternatives. In addition, you can configure DXE to block raid warning messages from other boss mods, which also helps to cut down on spam.

3. DXE has a proximity display that isn't dogshit. Instead of merely arbitrarily telling you who is within 10 yards of you, DXE displays the exact distance and direction that a player is from you in a real-time window. This is amazing on any fight that requires people to spread out (e.g. NB, Saurfang).

If you're still not convinced, then be aware that DXE was instrumental in allowing Fallen Chapter to kill heroic Anub'arak, and had I not switched to it from BigWigs, who knows what would be happening today. Controlling the Nerubian Burrowers' Shadow Strike is vital, and BigWigs' timer for it is wrong and gets desynchronised as you progress through the fight. DXE doesn't suffer from this problem, and since I installed DXE, I haven't let a single person die to Shadow Strike.

One more thing: It's pretty well known now that DBM is owned by gold-selling companies. If you are actually stupid enough to support these scumbags, then you are a stupid piece of shit, and I sincerely hope that the next time you go to open a carton of milk to pour on your cereal, you find that the milk has been removed and replaced with ape cum. You deserve it, fuckface.



  1. I didn't know that DBM is owned by gold sellers, but if that's true then I've been supporting them for a long long time. So you just called me a stupid piece of shit, fuckface and you hope next time i open a carton of milk that it is ape cum.

    So why would I support your DXE when you advertice it in a bad way and you are totally rude.

    I am gonna stick with DBM.

  2. I heard using a product that you do not pay for is supporting the company that owns the product...

    And so is your face.

  3. cool story bro....

  4. Bad troll is bad.

    Obviously a scrub.

  5. you are retard, have a nice day

  6. Please, don't go around posting stuff like this.

    Even if DBM where owned by a gold selling company, who the fuck cares? It's an addon that simply makes your life as a raider easier.

    I won't comment on BigWigs, as I've never used it before.

    However, bashing the ADDON saying that it's the ADDON'S fault for you not being able to stop Shadow strike is pretty lame.
    It's called: Learn to play.

    PS: My guild is using DBM, and NO ONE dies to shadow weird isn't that?
    Sure, we haven't downed him yet, but still, NO ONE dies from Shadow strike. If someone dies, it's normally thanks to that occasional healer DC or server lag OR simply bad luck. (Such as miscalculating where the edge of the ice patch is while kiting the spikes. Sometimes the ice "hides" under the floor, so you have to calculate where it is)

    So basicly, what I'm trying to say is: L-E-A-R-N T-O P-L-A-Y, and if that doesn't work for you, here is it in moron language: L2P


  7. What a douche bag

  8. Your logic sucks almost as much as your taste in web design.

  9. lol all of these pathetic, flailing faggots getting personally offended by a blog post.

    Hint: you aren't important enough to be the sole target of an insult.

  10. not one of your points made me give a shit
