Recount addon for patch 4.2

General Discussion
Usually with every patch, I need to update my Recount addon. But forgot how. Checked Curse's website and couldn't find any Recount update for 4.2. Any suggestions?

Update

*********** Finally Recount is updated **************

http://www.wowace.com/addons/recount/files/1450-v4-2-0a-release/

make sure to "extract it" only into your C drive's WoW "Interface/Addons" folder. Overwrite or delete any old Recount data. *Confirmed that it is working. *
i suggest you delete Recount and never download it again.
What would you replace it with? (By the way, I apologize, I just realized that there is another WoW forum for addon questions.)

How else would you track your damage?
Download Skada instead. But that's just my opinion.

You can also try wowinterface.com. Some addon makers prefer it over Curse.

Another suggestion is to look at the "Development Site" link on Curse. For Recount it takes you to WoWAce.com. Once there, you can see that the last update was 12 hours ago.

Changed the link to the main wowace.com page for recount. The download page hadn't been updated with a new file yet.

Recount is a graphical damage meter written by Cryect. Recount (Preservation) is an attempt to preserve it through the 2.4 patch and fix up some minor things along the way. If Cryect returns the project really should be wholely his and he can keep or abandon any changes I've made here.
Recount would be good if people didn't use it to grief other players.
Skada works perfectly fine in 4.2

If you raid, you'll track it with your guild's WoL account.

If you don't raid, who gives a crap?

I find it highly useful to know DPS outside of raids. I also use Skada to watch my overhealing, total damage, damage taken, and all that rot. On my warrior, damage taken is useful to determine who gets Vigilance. Finally, Skada has a threat meter auto-switch mode that is extremely useful (and replaces Omen).

Invalid statement. Any tool created has pros and cons. Before there was a huge outrage about GS because it did more harm than good. Regardless of whether you raid or not, use it to grief other or not a tool is still a tool that is created with the intention helping people track whatever they want and in this case track their performance.

And sometimes its not so much grief when someone who clearly is not pulling his own weight is leeching off the group gets called out and kicked out, that some people take it to the extreme is another different matter.
Damage meters can be useful, if they are used for more than just looking at damage.

I like to use mine to track reasons for a death so I can make sure not to let it happen again.
I'm not familiar with Skada.

Can someone who uses it tell me why they like it more than Recount?

Haha people watch overhealing. Oh wait people don't roll hots on other people that do a lot of over healing.

Did a BH on my druid once where I did 54% overhealing...... Also my druid (Bemith - Wildhammer) vastly outgears that place anyways

Wowace has the new version. You can get there by going to the Wowace link on curses Recount page.

Personal preference, and situations like now. Skada is still available while Recount is not. For sometime Skada was really great for healers, because Recount NEVER tracked absorbs/heals so disc priests in ICC would look like poop. But in reality when you added in absorbs/heals they were way up on the meters.

There could be other reasons besides what I stated, but recount is mine as of personal preference. I rarely use it, as I usually look at WoL after every attempt instead. Anyhow hope this helps!

Because it works right now.

Honestly, the two add-ons give you the same information. It's personal preference. I'm enjoying the leftclick/rightclick switching Skada uses compared to the arrows on recount.
Does Skada generate death reports? I find that's my predominant use for Recount.

And this is useful, how? Meters in heroics douchebags make.

Yeh, priests are a whole different story. Overhealing for us means we used the wrong heal and wasted mana. Your hots are going on the person no matter what, because you have to get ahead of the damage incoming. My overhealing represents expensive mana potions, time wasted drinking, and using cooldowns at times when I shouldn't have to, so they're used up when I really should need them.

It's also very important to know who does the most damage and who does the least. I don't use this to boot underperforming DPS. It tells me who is likely to pull aggro and when I should bubble them or prepare to heal them as they get the last few hits in to kill a mob they've aggrod from the tank.

Damage taken is important for the same reason. Whoever takes the most damage (hopefully behind the tank) gets the most healing and I learn to look at their health second (again, after the tank).
Get skada. Less bloated .. uses less memory .. which means less FPS loss when you run it.

With the skada toolbar addon, it puts a menu on top to make it look like recount.

I ditched recount long ago and never been happier.

Outside of raids doesn't specifically mean heroics only. And actually it is nice to see who's pulling there weight and who is not. But outside of raids could be just testing dps, and using it in PvP for deathlogs and what not in arena's or RBGs.
