Add-Ons and Tips
Anam Cara has a few add-ons and third party programs that we either strongly recommend or require for raiding.

Add-Ons
Deadly Boss Mods - REQUIRED - Download from Curse.com - This will modify your Warcraft game and provide numerous alerts and warnings to allow us to more easily combat a boss.

Ventrilo - REQUIRED - Download from Ventrilo.com - This is used outside the game to allow us to communicate during the raid.  It is not required that you be able to talk (microphone), however, it is required to be able to listen (headphones).  We do not recommend putting your Vent sound over speakers especially if you have a microphone set up to activate by noise sensitivity... this can create feedback and have everyone throwing their headsets off.  Headsets are as cheap as $15.

Omen - Recommended - Download from Curse.com - This will modify your Warcraft game and allow you to track your threat on your target.  If you are not a fan of Omen, please ensure you have some kind of threat tracking method so that you are completely aware of your threat.


Normalize Vent

"Just how do you normalize vent?  Everyone keeps talking about it...  but I don't know how to do it."...  well... here's how!

  1. Go to Setup

  2. Enable Direct Sound

  3. Select the SFX button

  4. Select Compressor and click Add

  5. Under Compressor Properties use the following settings:
        Gain = Adjust for how loud you want people to be.  I typically use 20...  but a range between 10-15 might be better suited for you.
        Attack = 0.01
        Release = 500 (or as close you can get to it).
        Threshold = -30
        Ratio = 100
        Pre-Delay = 4.0

You can also use these settings to normalize an individual person.

  1. Right-click the person's name.

  2. Select Miscellaneous

  3. Select Special Effects

  4. Select Compressor and click Add.

  5. Under Compressor Properties use the following settings:
        Gain = Adjust for how loud you want people to be.  I typically use 20...  but a range between 10-15 might be better suited for you.
        Attack = 0.01
        Release = 500 (or as close you can get to it).

        Ratio = 100

Is WOW freezing anyone else’s system??? This is the 3rd time I’ve had to shut down in the past week and it’s getting annoying.
