Necrotic Wake

Avoid both Zolramus Gatekeeper and first Pride will spawn before Blightbone. Go up stairs with 31% trash count so second Pride spawns before Nar'zudah pack, and third Pride after patrolling Skeletal Monstrosity.

Mists of Tirna Scithe

Spawn the first Pride after the second Tiernen Villager and second Pride after the pair of Drust Boughbreakers. The third Pride will spawn in the maze.

If the maze causes the fourth Pride to spawn after the first pack of Spinemaw bugs, then the left path while carefully avoiding the patrolling pair of Spinemaw Reavers causes the final Pride will spawn right before engaging Tred'ova.

Return to Mechagon. The third Pride spawns just before the Manastorms. Get the Risen Bonesoldier and Skeletal Raptor before the Ardenweald section's entrance. Finish up the dungeon's trash and final two Prides before Dealer Xy'exa.

Halls of Atonement

Start on the right side and the first Pride will spawn just before the Shard of Halkias and its Depraved Collector. On the left side fight only the group with the second Shard of Halkias. The second Pride spawns after going down the nearby stairs.

Avoid pulling the dredgers and hound trio near the third Shard of Halkias so the third Pride spawns after the trash standing before Halkias. After moving up the stairs to the left fight so the fourth Prides right before engaging Echelon. No other choices.

Controller

A Reddit user named RainGhost posted a long introduction to the new in-game controller support. Here is my summary.

Beware! Enabling controller support will mess up your keybinds. You can reconfigure them. But if this will wreck your life, do not proceed.

Enable controller support.

/console GamePadEnable 1

Turn on the cursor that will hover slightly above the center of the screen. (You do get used to it.)

/console GamePadCursorCentering 1

Set the left shoulder buttons to be CTRL and the right shoulder button to be SHIFT.

/console GamePadEmulateCtrl PADLSHOULDER
/console GamePadEmulateShift PADRSHOULDER

Set the left trigger button to be left-click (which is seldom needed) and the right shoulder button to be right-click.

/console GamePadCursorLeftClick PADLTRIGGER
/console GamePadCursorRightClick PADRTRIGGER

(Patch 9.1 apparently changed these - now use the keybinds in the "target" section of keybinds for "Interact with Mouseover" and "Interact with Target".)

The "Back" controller button should work like the Escape key to close in-game windows. If it does not, use this command.

/run SetBinding("PADBACK","TOGGLEGAMEMENU")

Then go into your keybinds and set the various controller buttons and button-combinations how you wish.

My action bar is very clean.

action bar

The keybinds that work best for me are:
Back button - (leave this as ESC key)
Press left joystick in - place skull symbol on target
Press right joystick in - (leave this as centering the camera)
Left shoulder button with press right joystick in - zoom in camera
Right shoulder button with press right joystick in - zoom out camera
Left shoulder button with press in left joystick - action bar spot #10 with macro named Trinket, see below
Left shoulder button with start button - toggle viewing quest list and map
Right shoulder button with start button - toggle viewing all bags
Up Arrow - target next enemy
Down Arrow - step backwards
Left Arrow - action bar spot #11 with Kyrian potion
Right Arrow - action bar spot #12 with macro named Potion, see below
A button - (leave this as jump)
Left shoulder button with A button - action bar spot #5 with macro named Morph, see below
Right shoulder button with A button - action bar spot #6 with macro named Move, see below
X button - action bar spot #1 with macro named Tank1, see below
Y button - action bar spot #2 with macro named Tank2, see below
B button - action bar spot #3 with macro named Tank3, see below

I also have three main macros for the Havoc specialization.


Command Line Stuff

These two commands remove the floating combat numbers. Change the final 0s to 1s to restore them.

/console floatingCombatTextCombatDamage 0/console floatingCombatTextCombatHealing 0

I also remove class colors from friendly health bars.

/console ShowClassColorInFriendlyNameplate 0

If you wish, keep friendly names but remove the friendly health bars.

/console nameplateShowOnlyNames 1

You can make the entire game interface slightly transparent. In this example 0.8 means 80% solidity.

/run UIParent:SetAlpha(0.8);

This command is handy as a macro when doing world PvP.

/run SendChatMessage(GetRandomArgument("On Me!"),"PARTY")

These commands restore raid frames. Some addons remove them and do not restore them when the addon is removed.

/run EnableAddOn("Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames")
/run EnableAddOn("Blizzard_CUFProfiles")
/reload

These commands restore enemy health bars. Some addons remove them and do not restore them when the addon is removed.

/console nameplateShowOnlyNames 0
/reload

These commands restore the personal resource display. Some addons remove them and do not restore them when the addon is removed.

/run SetCVar("nameplateShowSelf", 1)
/run SetCVar("nameplateSelfAlpha", 1)
/run SetCVar("NameplatePersonalShowInCombat", 1)
/reload

Finally, here a command that displays the Great Vault without needing to stand in front of it.

/run LoadAddOn("Blizzard_WeeklyRewards"); WeeklyRewardsFrame:Show()
