5.4.8 Changes to CVars While In-Combat

Interface and Macros
Greetings,

We’re making a change to a number of CVars in the upcoming Patch 5.4.8 (release date: TBD). UI Add-Ons will be unable to update the following CVars while the player is in combat. Add-On authors, please feel free to use the 5.4.8 PTR testing environment to see if an UI Add-On is compatible with the upcoming patch before it goes live.

hell no..we already lick windows while hamming our swifty macro
What impact will it have on custom ui.

I have everything custom the whole ui, even the font is different, will affect my ui in the way ?
from what i can read out of it, this change is mostly to prevent people from accidentally altering their UI while they're in combat

so while in combat, no scaling of things or turning certain things (like arenaframes) on or off

also not able to turn nameplates on or off during combat apperantly, if im seeing this right.
not sure if that is the right call, but i guess it's for the best

You'd think so but no, these changes are made so people cant use interupt scripts in pvp (aka cheating)
blizzard better make sure the nameplates dont lagg the game then..
Is this the patch that you will remove the current challenge modes ?

As there still is like a half year untill WoD, I'd say 6.0

what

why do you think interrupt bots/scripts work?

because they're third party.

blizzard restricts what an addon is allowed to do. anything that gets around those restrictions has to be third party, and is illegal.

this won't affect interrupt bots, because they're not addons.
Awesome, not.
Guess its back to manually toggling nameplates whenever you enter combat.
What a waste of a perfectly good keybind.
And its not like we don't have enough skills to keybind anyway, lets use one for a simple UI feature.
stop linking to english threads in the german patchnotes. k.
Wieso wurde ich hier ins Englisches forum, aus den Deutschen Patchnotizen geleitet?
is there anyway to reset character copies all of mine bugged
Why are all the PTR realms down?
PTR is just for testing they got nothing to test
