How to set up Bigwigs

I’ll attempt a basic guide to setting up BigWigs for people who download it and still haven’t seen the usefulness of “emphasize.”

My basic UI

Type /bigwigs to bring up the configuration

Click Toggle Anchors and look through the options on left side to position bars where needed.

Here I’ve set up my bars/radar/notifications and clicked several “create test bars”

This is when everything is “emphasized” for certain abilities. Very important cause we’ll turn on certain things for “emphasize” a bit later.

Now click “bosses” in the configuration.

Now we’re going to set up individual alerts to draw even more attention to certain aspects of fights like Cats fixating on Mythic Kargath or Arcane debuffs on Mythic Twins.

Clicking the red arrow next to the ability brings up options. “Only when on me” and “Emphasize” are really important. Who cares if a cat is fixating on someone else? “Only when on me” is good for this. “Emphasize” and “pulse” it when available to make it impossible to ignore/tunnel through.

Twin Ogron Arcane Volatility On YOU! “Emphasize” that sucker so you get out of raid faster!
