This is very usefull; thanks for this addon.
If I may suggest something, It would be nice to be able to look at all the guides when you are not into an instance; before going in, just to prepare because you dont necessarily have the time to read when people are rushing.
Just a button to open the guide anywhere and maybe a selector to read the one you want?

I like the comments about copypasta and bullet points, one thing I'd love to see is a table of contents so these could be read prior to entering the dungeon/trial/arena. I know most of the mechanics but even I like an occasional refresher, and I'd love to recommend this to my guildies.

As it stands it's all quite a bit of a read and with PUGs the way they are the Leroys (Jenkins) will have pulled the final boss by the time some people get through reading it, which is why i'd like to see an external view/table of contents.

Other than that it's a very nice piece of work with just a few very minor formatting issues (a missed line return etc)

I can't tell you how many times I see people say in party chat, "first time here" when zooming into a dungeon. People that don't know their way around. Most of the time, that includes me!
And I'd love a way to verify and ensure that all bosses have been killed.
I know most dungeons seem mostly linear, but I've seen plenty of bosses hidden in dark corners or rooms that can easily be skipped over and passed by.
So having boss markers on the map would be a godsend. I hope you consider it.
You can use other addons for this already like
Destinations
MapPins

Lightbulb Account-Wide Settings, Please.

Could you please make the settings account-wide?
Or at least add a setting we could turn on to make the settings account-wide?
(For example, a setting that said "Account-Wide Settings?" with a changeable "No/Yes".)

Also, I agree that the addon should allow us to copy and paste its information in the chat.

Thanks for the great addon!
I would really love to see this feature as well. That would be a HUGE convenience in many pugs. I.e. After many, many dungeon runs I know all of the mechanics myself... but typing out the mechanics of scalecaller peak in chat every time I pug it does get a bit annyoing. ;-)

If I may add another idea:
Would it be possible to add the option of permanently hiding the addon's UI window? My UI is cluttered with many windows already. That's why I would like to permanently hide your addon's window (not just outside of dungeons/combat) and just use your addon with assigned hotkeys. Would that be an option you could implement? That would be awesome.

Thank you for your great addon!

Smile Great addon, But easier to read UI at a glance Please

"Is it possible to reduce the information to bullet points? It's too much."

This^^
I installed this addon today and i really like it. I fail to see why ZOS has not implemented it.

That's my only critique though, the amount of info is nice if you want to really go in depth.
But when you're trying to quickly read a mech before you're pug group wipes again yea... Kinda becomes a cluster.
I have seen the tips at the bottom, I just think they need to be Bold at the top or something.
Currently they blend in a little.

Anyway Thanks for this addon! Is Gud!

is it possible

Is it possible to reduce the information to bullet points? It's too much. Folks don't wait for you to finish a quest let alone read a novel. Great idea just needs some polishing. Maybe a button and a way to copy paste a couple of bullet points.

Hi, thanks for the feedback! We can certainly look at posting the fight to the group chat.

Thanks for the positive feedback! Hiding the bar is definitely something we could add!
I'll second this, as the guides are really useful, but I'm not using this mod as of yet because space is limited on my UI and I can't have that widget floating there all the time. Ideally I'd like to be able to have the widget always hidden because I'll just use a keybind to bring up a guide if I'm near a boss I don't know.

Aside from that, really great work!
Hi, it does now have an option to hide when no content is available, so not in a dungeon etc. It is in the settings. Thanks!

Awesome, the new version works really well. There is one aesthetic thing which you could fix in later versions. The displayed zone name has a wierd (zos) format. You can fix this simply by adding a code line after line 101:

Lua Code:
  1. 101 Xynode.zoneName = GetUnitZone(UNITTAG_PLAYER)
  2. 102 Xynode.zoneName = ZO_CachedStrFormat(SI_ZONE_NAME, Xynode.zoneName)

A qzuick little test showed it doesn't seem to break anything in your addon.

Thanks and kind regards

Edit: found an addon that switches Game Client to English, but leaves Audio Dialogs in german. So at least I'm getting the dungeon guides this way. Better solution would be the use of the zone ID instead of a hardcoded name => https://wiki.esoui.com/Zones

other than that: nice addon!

Oh and one more thing for the wish list: when you press a key to show all bosses, switch to mouse mode pls, so we can scroll immediately without pressing "."
