Remember back in November how I was complaining about the new renown window being complete crap right before 1.4 went live? My hopes of it being a placeholder piece of UI that will get replaced with something functional were in vain, the useless thing is still in the game. But now an addon developer called Varonth has set out to right that wrong with an addon called AdvancedRenownTrainer. Here’s what he has to say:
With 1.4 Mythic introduced new renown abilities aswell as renown rank 100. Because of these changes, the old Renown Training Window was no longer useable, and therefore they introduced a new one. Sadly with this new window, which is basically just an unsorted list of abilities, is missing some features, which made skilling or reskilling renown abilities troublesome.
But with Advanced Renown Trainer, those features are available once again, and the UI is replaced by a tab-based window, with tabs for basic stats, advanced stats, defensive stats and abilities.
Well said. And coded even better. While not exactly what I had in mind (mine was a horizontal layout), it incorporates many useful functions I’d never have though of, support for importing WARdrobe renown specs and a preset function among others. I recommend everyone that respecs their renown more than once a year to grab this addon and turn a torturous ordeal into an every day affair. What developers can’t be arsed to fix, addon developers do. I only wish the community could start coding out the game bugs themselves.
