Post your UI

73 posts in this topic

A classic thread on every WoW forum, just post a screenshot of your UI, maybe with a small explanation.

I use ElvUI with some plugins, vuhdo for raidframes, powerauras for the cooldowns, bigwigs for timers and that's about it.

Only just recently installed the raid cooldown tracker on the left, haven't raided with it yet so it's not in the correct position. I'll adjust that on wednesday.

P.S. One day I'll also move vuhdo and all my power auras a bit to the left, I think they're slightly too much to the middle, but I'm too lazy and haven't done it just yet.

ElvUI + Grid + Recount + Omen (the screenshot wasn't taken in combat, so many cool things are missing :P)

ElvUI + some random other stuff. Also, feel free to read the raid chat in this LFR group. He asked to me to give him the Insignia of the Corrupted Mind that I won. So I made him say something in raid chat first...

Nice one. Just a quick question, did you know that you can imbed skada/omen/recount... in the right chat frame? I don't have any of that turned on in main raids, but in 10-man raids I use them and I use the embed option which makes the addon cover the right chat frame. This saves space on the screen (I don't use the right chat during a raid anyway).

With Skada for example it looks something like this (I set it up in 2 frames, heal/damage for my healers, threat/damage for when I play DPS or tank)

I think I knew I could embed them on a previous build of ElvUI. I just haven't been arsed to do it lately. I probably should sine it looks cleaner either way. Especially since I have my omen and recount set up exactly like you do now, just not embedded in the right frame.

Is ElvUi hard to setup? My UI is a bit of a mess since 4.1 when I changed computer, I've never really bothered sorting it all back out and I'm just running with bartender and grid.

I'm always reluctant to have a large UI addon due to the hassle of setting it all up!

The first time you log in an install happens, chat frames get set in order, cVars(no idea what it is), unit frames..., you can even choose between healer, tank melee or ranged dps for th einstall process. After that it's mostly done and just requires some small tweaking to set it to your liking.

I actually use this compilation: AffinityUI which already has most of the addons I want, I just tweaked the power auras a bit, along with vuhdo and some datatext bars.

Keeping it simple. Can't bother with addon packs anymore, the patch days are way too stressful :D

Let me dig out a good one... Wait, nah, I'll go take one...

There! Madness LFR in all its fiery glory. UI's FTW!

The raidframes do suck here; I raid 10's mostly, so my LFR frames aren't optimized =3

Raidframes: Vuh'do

Cooldown Timers: Power Auras

Player Frames: Pitbull

Other: Lots of other guff, list goes on forever :)

I won't post one because it is almost the same as Meukows! Only difference is I have recount and omen neatly on the right...

I can't deal with much more information on the screen :)

One thing a lot of people say is that too many UI addons make patch day stressful. I haven't had a single patch-day problem yet. Maybe this is overblown somewhat? :)

I don't think I've ever had any problems. Maybe that's because the US gets their patch earlier then we do in Europe and addon developers can update them quite fast. I also update all my addons right before I play the game after a new patch.

Even 4.2, 4.3 and the start of cataclysm went pretty smooth for me, because Blizzard allows addons towards the end of a beta/PTR testing period and all the good and very popular addons get updated during that time and are released when the patch is being applied.

The most popular ones are always quick to update for sure! The majority of addons still function fine if you just "load out of date" ones anyway.

It did used to annoy me having to re-download addons manually (does Curse client do it automatically?). Then a friend pointed out WoWMatrix and thats pretty much a one click button to update them all :) nice and handy

Curse doesn't have a one-button function unless you pay for it, I think. Guess they have to keep it funded somehow ^_^

The Curse CLient is free, and scans for updates for your addons every time you log in, quite easy actually........my UI is boring.....im a Rogue...... I use DBM and Recount.........not much there huh? otherwise when im just out and about doing my normal stuffs its Gatherer, NPC Scan and NPC Scan overlay..... im pretty simple, and like to play it as its given to me for the most part.........

But i DO have a confession........ I used the Icy-Veins Class Guid to tweak my Rogue and make her a better DPS-er, breaking my rule of playing it MY WAY lol... i was happy to see that for the most part, my talent tree was set up almost exactly the way you guys had it, with only a few small changes, it made me feel pro :P And my rotation only needed tweaking to add one change. i was actually grinning ear to ear and saying YAY!!!! im not as big a looser as i thought!

now back to UI....... so yeah, recount. DBM. and i only use DBM occasionally because otherwise it slows down my framerate to 4fps.......not good.

Yes, but you have to press "update" on every single addon. What I was talking about is their "premium" feature which updates everything. :)

I'm aiming for a simple UI so that it doesn't clutter my whole screen, and here is it:

Posted Image

I use Dominos, Prat, Grid, Xforcist, Decursive, Titan Panel, along with another addons.

By the way, MadMonk, how do you split the Recount into two so that you can see healing and the DPS at same time? I'd like a way to monitor both.

That's a nice one Crix! Do you use any kind of Power Auras type addons? It's always good to show with Auras up as well, to get a feel for it in action ^_^

I've tried it out one time before, didn't like it so I just got rid of it. I think I like what I have right now, though. Posted Image

Holy Sh*t. That's awesome. Did you make that UI yourself or did you get it somewhere? and are those color-waves-lines-thingies moving or are they silent images? (isn't it annoying to lose so much space on your screen and don't you get distracted?)

    • Tanking UI & keybind questions
      By Adabella
      I've tanked off and on (mostly just leveling/heroic dungeons) for years. I'm pretty familiar with how tanks and specific classes work, but I'm looking for more general info here. I'd like to get into tanking end-game content but I don't think I'm quite there yet. I've been watching videos on general raid tanking (movement, awareness, etc.) and I always read/watch fight guides, but I feel like there are more general things I could do to improve.
       
      What are the most important things for me to be able to see when tanking raids? I know I would need to be able to see the other tank's stacks/debuffs, as well as boss frames with a cast bar, but is there anything else I really need to view? I use DBM so spell timers, etc. are included in that, ElvUI for my UI which keeps it pretty clean, and I use WeakAuras to show CDs and other info pertinent to my class (Stagger for monks, Resolve, and so on).
       
      What keybinds do you typically use for tanking? I'm used to using 1 to 0, -, and = (I have a Naga mouse so it's 1-12 for me), then the same keys with shift or alt modifiers. Ctrl seems to be a little hard for me to reach comfortably. Note: A & D are unbound for me; I use W, S, Q, E and my mouse for movement. I typically would use Shift+1, Shift+2 for ST/AoE taunts, but I'm wondering if there's maybe a better keybind to try out for those.
       
      Thanks for any help 
    • Which Addons do you use/recomend?
      By Valkyr
      So I've been playing HS for around nine months but was never aware of the possibility of addons and plugins. I habitually use online tools to make arena decks but recently I was watching a few matches on twitch and realized people could see their entire decks, what they have used and not used while they play. Blizzard, i believe doesn't consider anything that can be done with a paper and pencil (and I guess a calculator) when done by an app to cheating.
       
      So my question is what addons and plugins does everyone here use and which ones should I start off with. I've heard of Hearthstone Deck Tracker and Hearthstone Tracker (are they different?) but wondering what gaps are there in my information and what I should be using.

    • Boomkin Weakauras
      By Sylvarna
      Hey fellow druids!
       
      I've recently switched from healing to Boomkin and started off in BRF.
      I'm pretty bad at tracking trinkets, weapons and general procs and I was wondering if anyone out there had:
       
      a) Weakauras strings that would allow me to track trinket procs and starfall uptime (I'm not too used to looking at my buffs so something big and in the centre would be ace)
       
      b) general tips for being a boomkin
       
      I think I have the prio system down but any tips would be greatly appreciated 
      .
       
      Many thanks,
      Sylv
    • Prot Warrior - Weakauras
      By Hawkin
      So, I've been fiddling with weakauras for a few weeks and have been searching around the Internet for example of setup I could use or get some inspiration from. I was quite surprise that there was no thread here about that, so here it is.
       
      My own setup: http://i.imgur.com/4o6izMz.jpg
       
       
      I'm using a laptop, as such my screen size is not very big (used to raid on 27-inch screen in Cata) and being a raid leader, I need access to a bunch of information. As such, I was trying to find a way to make my aura relatively compact/small so as not to hinder my vision but also big enough to catch my attention when something of significance occured.
       
      On the left of my health bar you can see all defensive CDs, this way I have an easy time following my SBlock uptime and my CDs duration. It's a dynamic group, so it always appears first at the bottom and grows upward. So while it might seems very big at first glance, I rarely have more than 3 CDs used at the same time.
       
      In the middle of the screen, Revenge and Shield Slam CDs. Middle icon is a rage monitors, it appears when I reach 60 rage to avoid waste. The execute aura is for when I get into execute range (or SD proc if I run with this spec) to make sure I don't dump rage into HS when I could Execute. The icon on the other side is when I'm not enrage and Berserker Rage is off cooldown. I found I wasn't using it at all so I decided to track it. This is a new addition and I haven't tested it in raid situation yet so we'll see if it's useful or if I might have to change it.
       
      Anyone want to post their own version?
