Addon Spotlight: Decursive 2.0
Things have been pretty slow around Addon Spotlight this week, which can be attributed to a brutal set of finals for yours truly. I was thinking it would be great if there was an addon for life that I could simply click to remove the Finals debuff. Unfortunately, there isn't anything yet, although I'm waiting for one of you savvy developers to come up with something. (Hint hint, wink wnk)

However, there is an addon that can make removing debuffs in World of Warcraft easy and efficient. Decursive 2.0 is a lightweight, subtle addon that holds great power. This mod has been around, in a couple different variations, for quite some time. In fact, it was one of the first addons I installed. Since then it has become as much a part of my user interface as any of the default tools.

Decursive 2.0
configures itself to your class and will work straight out of the box. It handles anything you can cleanse, allowing you to use it with little or no configuring on your part. Keep reading find out what Decursive 2.0 can do for you.

So you found your way back, lets talk about features! Decursive 2.0 allows you to choose which of your cleansing abilities to track, and gives you a couple options on how they are handled. You can use the provided macro, which is a mouse-over macro. This means you can hover your mouse over the inflicted target and use a keystroke to cleanse with the appropriate ability. You can also use the MUF or Micro-Unit Frames. These small boxes are discreet and blend in seamlessly with your UI. Each small box is someone (or something) that you can cleanse. To do so, you simply click on the appropriate box when it lights up. Decursive 2.0 also provide audible warnings, which help keep you on top of your decursing endeavors.

Decursive 2.0 comes with an embedded FuBar plugin as well, which is one easy way to open its options interface. You can also access the options by right-clicking on the MUFs out of combat or by using this commands:
  • /decursive
  • /dcr
One of my favorite features is the ability for Mages to Sheep mind-controlled targets and for Druids to Cyclone them. This is a quick and easy way to get dangerous mind-controlled party members out of the fight. You can re-configure any of the options, but this addon comes ready to go. The tooltips provide plenty of information to tell you what your options are, its all very intuitive and the Curse page for this addon is one of the most informative I've seen.

In fact, I can only advise you to download it, install it and try it out. For you Ace fanatics, its an Ace addon, for you macro addicts, there are spectacular macro options that include mouse-over healers/decursers. I have yet to find anything nearly this good for decursing on all of my characters. What are you using to keep you and your companions clean?
