Cogwheel of Doom Work Around

The Cogwheel of Doom has a workaround.  If you’re willing to turn off tool-tips there is a marked lack of SUCK when dealing with anything requiring cogwheel interaction.

The workaround is to turn off tool tips.  A wonderfully simple way to do this is to setup macros like the following:

A macro to “turn off tooltips” and one to “turn on tooltips”.

Turn Off Tooltips:

/script GameTooltip.Temphide = function() GameTooltip:Hide() end; GameTooltip:SetScript(“OnShow”, GameTooltip.Temphide);

Turn On Tooltips

/script GameTooltip:SetScript(“OnShow”, GameTooltip.Show);

Before jumping into battlegrounds or doing instances I will turn tooltips off and go about my business without worrying about Cogwheel.  Once I’m done – I just turn them back on.

Now.  If someone could just do something about that fancy new water freezing my computer I’d be home free!
