Anyway I will go ahead & download the Twitch app like everyone's saying, but I still need to know whether my in-game addon settings will carry over automatically, or whether they'd return to default same as if they'd all been uninstalled in the curse client then reinstalled from scratch. Because if it's the latter then I will have to take screenshots of the settings on all my toons BEFORE I install the addons thru the Twitch client.
Before you can write any sort of code, you'll want to have a tool that lets you edit your AddOn files. However do not get overly distracted with the tools themselves while trying to get your first AddOn created. Any text editor, like Windows Notepad can edit the files. All AddOn files are plain text files. The editors can make the coding and many repetitive tasks easier for day to day editing, but it's often very difficult to learn the tools and try to learn the AddOn at the same time.
- The auto trash sell feature is also incredible, but I always had issues with it selling gear efficiently. Often I have to open my bags 2-3 times if I have a lot of trash, because it can't clear it all in one go. There's also a very noticeable delay with this feature when opening the bags, almost like the bag UI is freezing for a few seconds, then it clears. I've started using a different add on for auto selling trash and it does it all instant, no hiccups, no nothing. Just one swift move.
But now, the Gear Advisor starts popping up, trying to get me to put the old 360 version Ring #1 into Ring #2's slot, since iLvl 360 is better than 350. Except I can't do that, because of the "Unique-equipped" modifier. So I click "Cancel". And then the window continues to pop up after every action my character takes, over and over and over, until I get rid of the old ring by vendoring, scrapping, or destroying it.
I've used WoW-Pro for years and in WoD, Legion and now BfA it's been awesome for just going on auto-pilot and working your way through a zone. It has 3 levels of depth you can set, so you can set it to just do 1) the main story, main points of interest and rare mobs and treasure that aren't far off the beaten path; 2) every quest with a more thorough dive into the side stuff; 3) absolutely everything.
