      Just as a general bit of information:

      I know that with some classes/specs Singular does a terrible job. That's why CRs are so popular on the store. Singular is good enough for questing, but the Cata-Bundle is an edge case for some classes, because Singular doesn't manage to pull the required DPS even when the gear is good enough. I will put in a bit more custom code to force long cooldowns, but eventually it will all be replaced by the embedded combat routines I am developing. It is just that developing CRs for all classes is not something that can be done on a whim. Try maybe chugging a flask before going to Firelands. With the damage scaling it might be enough to put you over the top.

      Again great profiles, thx. But Singular routine is very slow, dps is really awful. I tested with warrior 705 ilvl. Some bosses were killed only with second (third) attempt. I tried Tuanha's routine it makes very good dps but there are alot of issues with targeting and moving, so I switched to singular again =( You need to find compromise :p Will check with my other chars.

      I will just create my own routines and be competition to TuanHa since he refused to work with me on the issues and told me to buy his routines instead. I just don't have it in me to spend 180 € to fix other people's products and then go through the support thread to ask for bugfixes. Had he offered me a direct connection dev2dev I might have done it, but that ship has now sailed.

      I already posted this some place before: My CRs will be embedded for free into my plugin, but limited to my products. And if someone wants to use them for another purpose, they will be available for purchase on the store. I feel that is a good compromise to not rip my existing customers off but still not put in 100s of hours of work for free.

      And you might have to try different talents/specs to find the combination that works, but I did clear at least 10HC with all classes and my chars were all around Ilvl 650 when I did that. So with 50 more item levels the 25HC should be doable with most classes. I can't and won't guarantee a full clear with every class. But there may be still a few things I can tune to boost DPS if you guys help me pinpoint which fights with which class/spec should be doable but aren't and even better which skills the char is not using.

      Edit: There are fights in the bundle that use complete custom combat code because Honorbuddy could not handle the fight, so no CR would have been able to do this. This is the case with Ultraxion trash mobs, drakes in the Warmaster Blackhorn encounter, Spine of Deathwing, Nefarian and Al'Akir. There are also line of sight issues with Wing and Arm Tentacles in the Madness of Deathwing encounter which causes the bot to use autohit, but that will also be the same with every class since it is an Honorbuddy problem.

      Imho TuanHa dances on too many weddings at the same time, the quality of his CRs became really bad.
      I prefer CRs of coders with 1 or 2 active CRs like Millz, Mirabis and Hazzard. Fast updates and bug fixes.

      but back to topic, again a great profile with ordinary hiccups :)

      thank you sir.

      Am i the only one whos WoW freezes and becomes unresponsive after an encounter? it seems to happen about 75% of the time now, and doesnt seem to matter whether i use singular, tuanha, 1 character at a time or 2, disable all addons or not, one class or another. here is a snippet of the log from the latest attempt.

      Is there a possible list for all the fights where other routines like Tuanha wouldnt work? That way i can play manual for those fights/trash? Have been waiting awhile for this to come out! So excited to try it out now!

      Greymagic injection problems happen when your Honorbuddy loses sync with WoW. Sometimes there can even be a "ghost HB process" in your computer's memory that is not visible in the task manager and the screws with your memory attachment. Please try restarting your computer and you might even need to clear your Honorbuddy cache.

      Oh dear... That is a tough call to make, because I don't have TuanHa so I didn't run my profiles with them. But I have to say that in many fights I had to do heavy customizations because Honorbuddy has some severe limitations or the strategy was so intricate I had to basically disable almost everything and create my own stuff.

      Fights with heavy customization (off the top of my head) are:

      - Throne of Four Winds: Conclave of Wind (due to movement) and Al'Akir due to HB targeting/line of sight issues
      - Bastion of Twilight: Nefarian (due to taking place on an elevator where neither HB targeting nor HB movement really work
      - Firelands: Alysrazor (due to flying)
      - Baradin Hold: Should be okay
      - Bastion of Twilight: Should be okay
      - Dragon Soul: Ultraxion, Blackhorn, Spine and Madness are heavily, heavily modified

      Just take note that using another CR is where I have to draw the line in my support efforts. It is just logistically not possible to test 11 classes with 34 specs total in more than 1 combat routine. The math speaks for itself.

      Yeah I completely understand. Any ETA when you will be starting to work on your own CR to go with your profiles?

      I totally understand why you ask, but I can't give you a date. Gotta do it the Blizzard way and say "Soon™".

      This is an unordered list of things I currently have on my agenda.

      • Product maintenance as necessary
      • Move the Studio Companion GUI from Winforms to WPF to make it futureproof
      • Add item use and hardcoded combat buffs as short-term solution to Cataclysm Bundle DPS issues
      • Release Pet Battle Studio (a "it does everything" pet battle solution)
      • Create combat routines for 11 classes
      • Move Travel Studio from XML profiles to behaviors
      • Implement "Studio Helper" into Studio Companion
        (basically a support system that helps you report bugs and check on their status without having to post logs to forums)
      • A few unannounced projects :p

      So you can probably understand that things come up. Sometimes I sit on a bug for hours, other times I develop a whole raid in an afternoon. It is way too random.

      Sorry for offtopic. :p I agree, but for some classes there are no opportunities except Tuanha.

      Hey mate! I purchased the bundle as soon as I got home, but the studio companion says it cannot find it in the product activation section. How can I fix this?

      Yes it is, first thing I checked. For some reason I also have a trial version, activated roughly 30 seconds after I purchased the bundle. I tried every combination (both active or only one of the 2) and restarted honorbuddy after each settings change, but it didn't change anything :(

      Hunter is pretty much dead, same with warrior, dk and rogue. only Tuanha offers PVE CRs there.

      Things to do in this situation:

      1. Try to deactivate either the trial or the release version
      2. Try to load one of the profiles through the "Load from Buddystore" dialog. Do you even see the Cataclysm Bundle there?
      3A. Yes: Honorbuddy:HelpDesk:Cache corruption problems
      3B. No: Contact the Buddy Support. If you activated the correct product and don't see it, there is something wrong on their end
