ElvUI: a Comprehensive Guide

205 posts in this topic

The guide was updated for Legion.

Profile to import is here.

 

ElvUI is a full UI replacement. It completely replaces the default Blizzard UI at every level with a new and better interface. It has multiple addons and plug-ins integrated into it, such as Dominos action bars and TidyPlates. As such, you’ll only ever have to update ElvUI and not worry too much about its individual components. This UI will arrange your interface to be more flexible and practical.

 

DOWNLOADING AND INSTALLATION

Download ElvUI from Tukui. The version on Curse is outdated.

Following the above link, you will find two addons to download: Tukui and ElvUI. You need ElvUI:

 

1.png

 

Unpack the downloaded archive to your WoW Addons folder (World of Warcraft -> Interface -> Addons)

 

uDZM4Gl.jpg

 

If you had ElvUI previously installed, you'd get a message asking to replace the current folder - click 'Yes':

 

XCfmIDX.jpg

 

Log in to WoW. Click the 'AddOns' button in the left bottom corner of your character selection screen. Make sure that both ElvUI Config and ElvUI are enabled in the addons list:

Press 'Enter World'. ElvUI config can be reached from the Main Menu (in game press Esc button-> press ElvUI button) or by typing /ec in chat.

When entering the game for the first time after installing the addon, you'll get this screen :

2.png

 

If you can't see this Installation screen, type /ec in chat and then press 'Install' button in the config window:

3.png

You’ll now have a 8 step configuration process. Do not skip it if you don’t have ElvUI already configured on some other toon.

 

[1] Click on ‘Continue’ to begin:

[2] Step 2 of 8: CVars: Click on ‘Setup CVars’ → ‘Continue’

[3] Step 3 of 8: Chat: Click on ‘Setup Chat’ → ‘Continue’

[4] Step 4 of 8: Theme Setup: you can try all 3 buttons (Classic/Dark/Class) to see the difference and click ‘Continue’ after you decided.

[5] Step 5 of 8: Resolution: choose ‘High Resolution’ if you have a 15 inch + monitor, otherwise choose ‘Low Resolution’ → ‘Continue’

[6] Step 6 of 8: Layout: Choose the option you are interested in - a player / target / target of target Unit Frames will be at the bottom of the screen, not on the top and in a slightly different position for every role (You can click on every role to see the difference and to choose what you like better). If you chose a Healer role, you will get an announcement asking you to install the Clique addon, just click ‘Yes’ and ignore it, no need to install anything.

4.png

 

Click ‘Continue’ when you’re done.

[8] Step 7 of 8: Auras: I would advice for ‘Icons Only’ - we don’t need a million bars and timers for standard raid buffs. We all know that they are present. But you can select the ‘Aura Bars&Icons’ option too if it’s you taste. Click ‘Continue’ when you’re done.

[10] Step 8 of 8: Installation Complete: You’re done with the basic installation, hit the ‘Finished’ button and it will reload your UI.

After restarting, you’ll get a screen with a support announcement and tips. Check “Disable”, then press “Hide” if you don’t want these tooltips to come up. I suggest not to hide them until you’re completely familiar with ElvUI.

Now we’re going to configure your UI a bit more.

Typing /ec in chat will open the Config window.

 

GENERAL:

5.png

There are some very nice options here that make your life easier:

 

- ‘Announce Interrupts’ dropdown menu. Set this to ‘None’ if you are using some other addon for it or set to any of the other options: Party/Raid/Say, etc.

- Select an ‘Auto Repair’ option from the drop down menu.

- Tick ‘Vendor Grays’ - awesome option!

- Tick “Auto Greed/DE’ to automate rolling on greens. It’ll automatically choose Disenchant or Greed (depending on whether an enchanter is available or not). This option works only on max level so don’t be afraid to DE something useful.

- You can disable the Order Hall Command Bar from here too. 

- In the Objective Frame tab you can change its length.

 

Go through the rest of options and check whatever you feel useful.

 

MAPS:

Before Legion it was a dropdown menu that was changed recently to a stand alone config window:

6.png

While a 'World Map' tab is pretty obvious, you should configure properly the Minimap section:

- Pay close attention to the Minimap Buttons menu (Garrison / Calendar / Mail / LFR Queue, etc) - you can resize, move, hide / hide in combat all the buttons.

You should pay attention to the ‘Hide’ button. For some reason it is ticked by default so you’ll have to untick it for every button you want to see on your Minimap.

 

DATABARS:

Same as Maps, it was a dropdown menu in General tab and was changed recently to a stand alone config window:

7.png

If you are still leveling or grinding Faction Reputations, you can configure here

- XP Bar & Reputation 

You can choose here all the standard options - move, resize, vertical / horizontal, show on mouseover.

Tick 'Hide at Max level' for the XP bar - it's a nice option.

Artifact Bar:

A very useful in Legion - it shows gained/needed for the next trait AP for your currently equipped Artifact and open the Traits window on mouse click.

 

Go through the rest of options and check whatever you feel useful.

 

ACTION BARS

8.png

 

- Tick ‘Enabled

- Tick ‘Keybind Text’. Displays bind names on the action buttons.

- Tick ‘Macro Text’. Displays macro name on the action button so you'll be aware that pressing this button you'll run a macro and not a single ability.

- Change ‘Font’ and ‘Font Size’ to whatever works for you.

 

Pick Up Action Key’ is the button that you must hold down in order to drag an ability to another action button - prevents from accidental messing with the buttons.

 

Now check “Enabled” for Micro Bar (this is the one with Quests, LFR, Char Info, Spellbook, etc icons), any of the Bars 1-6, Pet Bar and Stance Bar. Actually, you can enable only Bar 1 and 2 or whatever works for you and disable all the rest.

For every bar, there is a ‘Mouse over’ tick box - this will simply hide the bar until you mouseover it, which is useful for bars that are irrelevant during raids.

In enabled Bars, you can choose the number of buttons per bar and vertical or horizontal style.

- The ‘Buttons’ slider will allow you to set how many buttons a bar will have (the button cap is 12 though, you cannot have more than that in a single bar).

- ‘Buttons Per Row’ - choose 12 if you want a horizontal bar, choose 1, if you want it vertical bar.

9.png

 

Actually you don’t have to have exactly 12 buttons per bar. It can be any amount from 1 to 12 or even 2 rows of 6 buttons or any other configuration that you prefer.

If you want to hide an Action Bar in a specific situation, for example during a raid, you have to type

[vehicleui] hide; [overridebar] hide; [petbattle] hide; [nocombat] hide; show;

in the 'Visibility State' window.

 

Moving elements

Now we will sort the bars on the screen. Click ‘Toggle Anchors:’

10.png

 

You will then get this screen:

11.png

Just mouse drag your bars to the proper position.

If you feel that your bars are stick to something all the time, just untick ‘Sticky Frames’ option in the central Menu.

In addition, you get a 'Nudge' menu with arrows and numbers on every bar you are clicking - you can use it for fine tuning (if you are interested in extremely precise positioning ^^)

When you’re done, click on ‘Lock’ in the central Menu.

 

Key Bindings

To configure Hot Keys on your Action Bars, click on ‘Keybind Mode.’

12.png

You will get this window pop-up:

tYu72Xd.jpg

Tick Character specific Key Bindings only if you want different positioning of hotkeys on the bars for different characters. You’ll get an explanation of what to do on the screen. Do not forget to click ‘Save’ when you’re done.

 

BAGS:

Click ‘Enable,’ if you want to use ElvUI’s bag system. It’s nice, tidy and flexible in size and positioning. If you have an external bag addon, you will have to disable ElvUI’s bag system or you’ll get both of them messed up.

I personally preferred to disable ElvUI bag system and use AdiBags addon. It’s the same graphic style but has very good smart section division by default including different gear sets - no need to configure anything. In addition you can have all the Currencies you want to track at the bottom line.

Looks like this:

13.png

 

BUFFS AND DEBUFFS

Both ‘Enable’ and ‘Disabled Blizzard’ must be checked.

 

CHAT:

You can play here with the options or leave it untouched, move and resize chat  windows, remove / split existing or add new, add timestamps, enable chat history, etc.

Let’s try to add a new chat window, so you’ll know how to do this.

oL4UjCx.jpg

 

[1] Right click on the ‘General’ tab of your Chat window and select ‘Create New Window’ from the menu.

[2] Name this window ‘Raid.’

[3] Right-click on the newly created ‘Raid’ chat window and select ‘Settings.’

[4] From the ‘Chat’ category, untick everything except ‘Party, Party Leader, Raid, Raid Leader, Raid Warning, Instance, Instance Leader.’

[5] From the ‘Global Channels’ category, untick everything.

[6] Click ‘Okay.’

Remember that you can move chat windows - you will have to untick ‘Lock Positions’ option to do this.

14.png

 

DATATEXTS:

Datatexts are all the additional data that could be displayed at the bottom of chat windows, Action Bars and Minimap. 

You can also interact with the datatexts. For example, clicking on Time will bring up Calendar, on Durability - your Character Info, on Spec - will change it to the secondary, mouseover on System - shows your addon list with the memory used, etc.

There is a nice tab 'Currencies' where you may configure which currencies and in what format you want to see in Datatexts.

15.png

Frankly, there are a million possibilities to try :)

 

NAMEPLATES 

If you are using external addon for the Nameplates, you’ll have to untick “Enable” here.

Check “Enable” in tabs you want Nameplates on (I personally check only Enemy NPC but it's completely your choice):

16.png

There are a lot of options to track and to choose from but they are all very user friendly so I wouldn't explain them one by one.

Pay Attention that the Elite Icon was finally added to ElvUI so you don't need to write custom texts to track Rare and Elite mobs anymore.

 

SKINS / TOOLTIPS / FILTERS

Doesn’t matter. Do whatever you want here.

 

UNITFRAMES:

Enable only the UNIT FRAMES tabs that are relevant for you. All the rest - keep them disabled.

You should disable all the Blizzard frames - keeping both Blizz and ElvUI frames creates unnecessary mess on your screen.

For example as a raid healer I disable all the party/raid frames because I’m using VuhDo for it.

You can use Clique and mouseover macros with ElvUI Unit Frames.

ElvUI Raid Frames are very flexible: you can move and resize them, choose vertical or horizontal positioning. Any target data, buffs and debuffs could be configured separately for every kind of group. You can add and remove targets of your target, focus or pet, their cast bars, name, HP, level, raid icons, etc.

If you are interested in tracking incoming heals or  threat, there are options for this too.

17.png

 

PROFILES:

The most awesome thing about ElvUI is that after you did it once, no need to configure the addon for every character. Just choose the toon or a named profile that you want to copy the settings from. If you have a viable offspec, you can also ‘Enable Dual Profile’ to configure it.

Or you can just save different profiles for 10-man / 25-man raid or for tank / dps spec.

Another nice option is to share your profile with other player (obviously they should have ElvUI too) when targeting them.

18.png

 

I'm sharing my profile here for those who prefer not to start from scratch.

Use 'Import Profile' button to import :)

So I have been thinking about changing my UI and downloading ElvUI. I'm not looking for advice on which addon I should use, I am wondering if I can save my current UI so that if I remove ElvUI in the future I can revert to my current setup. If so how?

If you just turn off the addons (not delete) you would replace with ElvUI, they save the settings that they currently have.

Make a copy of you current WTF and Interface folders and save them outside of WoW folder.

If ElvUI wouldn't work for you, just move your saved folders back.

A small explanation for those who want to add Group Number to the Raid Frames:

 

Open ElvUI Configuration, go to 'Raid Frames'. In 'Custom Texts' line type 'Group' and press 'Okay'.

 

MHj9Gwk.jpg

 

Open the dropdown list and select the line 'Group' that should appear there:

 

sOCUk4O.jpg

 

Type [group] in the 'Text Format' line and adjust its positioning to whatever feels good for you. I used 'Left' in 'Justify' because of 'Role Icon' that I have on the right side.

1lLXWTL.jpg

 

This is what you'll see in your Raid Frames now:

I installed Elvui, but now I can't locate my spellbook to set up my bars. Any suggestions?

1. Press letter 'P' - it's a shortcut to open spellbook.

 

or

 

2. Press letter 'C' on your minimap to open ElvUI config. Go to 'Action Bars', press '+', go to Micro Bar, make sure that it's enabled and 'Mouse Over' option is off.

Spellbook icon is a part of Micro Bar.

I just installed ELVui and love the looks; however, I can't figure out how to unlock the action bars so I can change the spells.

 

I've looked everywhere including Interface>Action bars in wow menu.

In the wow Interface>Action Bars, the Lock Action bar feature is no longer there.

 

Please help :) Thx

If you mean replacing a spell with another one, it's Shift+mouse drag to throw away an icon and then just mouse drag from your Spellbook an icon of the spell you want to put in.

Is there a way to have the ActionBar skin of ElvUI without it changing the bar name?  I only ask as I love the way ElvUI looks and works but I don't really want to have to rewrite bar swapping macros and other such things.  Thanks.

Once I finish the configuration process (mine was 8 steps, not 9 btw) my minimap shows no C so I can't access the UI configuration screen to make any changes.  How can this be resolved?

You must have turned off the bar to the side of the minimap that displays buffs, the config button is linked to it. (Or it turned off by default for some reason) To get to the config without that, type "/ec". To turn the button back on, you can /ec, go to Buffs & Debuffs along the left, then on the right there's a dropdown, select "Consolidated Buffs" and enable it.

Hello there,

 

I have the same problem with the C to access the config. I searched forums and find /ec command and it works. I also tried you method in order to re-enable the c (Trinnah) and it does not work.

 

One more thing, the Op suggests to install Minimap button bar. I installed the addon yet my buttons from all the addons, garrison and such are all scattered. So obviously the addon does not work?

 

Thnkz for the help!

Hi I remember an older version of Elvis ui where you used to be able to intigrate ur Skada or recount into the right chat box.  Can you still do that and if so how?

Actually I just checked and it's possible :)

Download the AddOnSkins Addon and just throw it to the main Addons folder (not into ElvUI folder).

Go to the ElvUI Configuration, on the left side you will find AddOnSkins line. Click on it, check 'Single Embed system' and write the name of the addon you want to embed in the next line.

That's it. Now when you right click with the mouse on the right bottom arrow of your right chat panel, it will switch to the embedded addon (Skada, Recount, Details!, etc)

You can also use the dual embed to embed 2 Windows into the chat panel.  That's what I use to keep both damage and healing meters up with Details!

Hi, thanks for the good Guide!

I love the ElvUI but I'd like to change, that i cant see the rarity of mobs. Where do I set that? I have the same grey box for every enemy and I cant help myself haha.

      An eight hour maintenance is scheduled for NA realms tomorrow. If you're playing on EU realms, expect the same eight hours of downtime on Saturday, January 20.
      NA: January 19th, 7:00 AM PST - 3:00 PM PST EU: January 20th, 2:00 AM CET - 10:AM CET (Source /u/zelwake) Patch 7.3.5 went live with a lot of issues. Some of them are discussed in the latest tweets roundup. Community Manager Ythisens confirmed that world scaling has a negative on older raid content and a fix should be implemented before the weekend, possibly during the extended maintenance.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We will be performing scheduled maintenance beginning on Friday, January 19th, 7:00 AM (PST) and we expect the service to be available again at approximately 3:00 PM (PST). During this time the game will be unavailable for play.

      Please follow @BlizzardCS on Twitter for further updates. The Blizzard Battle.net App has been updated with the following notification:

    • By Stan

      The release date of Patch 7.3.5 draws close and our content hub contains all necessary information to guide you through it.
      The latest information about Legion's final content patch.
      Patch 7.3.5 is Legion's last content patch. The most prominent features are world scaling, Ulduar Timewalking and the Seething Shore battleground.
      Update: (January 18)
      We have a round of new dev tweets with information about bugs in Patch 7.3.5 that continue to pop up on live realms. An extended eight hour maintenance is planned for all regions. You can find more details here.
      Update: (January 17)
      Hotfixes for January 17 are out!
      Patch 7.3.5 is now live in all regions and the first bugs started to emerge. World scaling crippled soloing old content and Blizzard is currently working to fix the issue. We also reported about Orb of Deception transforming Pandaren into Allied Races characters. At this time we don't know if that's intended, but expect a round of hotfixes soon! We also compiled a list of undocumented changes in 7.3.5 that can be found below.
      Black Qiraji Battle Tank Model Update
      Scarab Lords rejoice! The Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal mount received a new model.

      Legion Epilogue Cinematics
      Two new cinematics are available to all players that start the new quest line in Silithus.

      A list of undocumented changes that were omitted from the official 7.3.5 patch notes.

      Extended maintenance is scheduled for this week. We'll update this hub with additional information as they become available (official patch notes, background download, etc.)
      January 2 January 9 January 16 New Qiraji Mounts (Call of the Scarab Micro-Holiday)

      Allied Races
      Patch 7.3.5 contains files for Allied Races, giving Blizzard the opportunity to enable them at any time after the patch goes live. During PTR testing, we looked at unlock requirements, special Heritage Armor, racials, tabards, and unlock scenarios. Four Allied Races will be available before Battle for Azeroth launches. Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls are gated behind the new expansion's campaign. We still have no information about their class options, but in a Q/A, Blizzard mentioned they are exploring the option to allow Dark Iron Dwarves to be Death Knights and Zandalari Trolls will be able to roll Druids.
      Unlock Requirements
      You must purchase Battle for Azeroth and have an existing character of at least level 110 on the destination realm of your Allied Race character. Allied Races are also gated behind reputation and various achievements. All requirements are account-wide.


      Heritage Armor
      Level up an Allied Race character from 20 to 110 and unlock special account-wide armor that's not restricted by type.

      Highmountain Tauren Druid Forms
      Highmountain Tauren have unique Druid forms. In our preview, we looked at their travel, cat, bear and flight forms!

      Mounts
      Four new racial mounts have been added for Allied Races. Check them out!

      Racials
      Explore new Racial abilities and passives available to Allied Races!

      Tabards
      We datamined four tabards for Allied Races and a new tabard from Pet Battles (Master Trainer's Tabard).

      Zone Chapters
      In addition to zone scaling, all zones now have chapters and completing a fixed number of quests is no longer required for Loremaster achievements.

      As is usual with a new patch, there are plenty of new issues popping up and aside from the hotfix posts, the devs also give us some info over the official dev twitter. Here's what they shared in the last few days that wasn't covered in the hotfix notes:
      First off, some players discovered an issue with a couple of battle pets and it was swiftly fixed:
      This general issue was mentioned in the hotfixes, but there's specific info on Na'zak the Fiend, and I for one deinitely enjoy the use of "smashed":
      It also seems more class ability bugs are popping up, specifically "on death" triggered ones, but no solutions for these for now:
      We then have a reminder of how the Seething Shore will unlock:
      Then there are the mount and transmog issues:
      And then there's the still pending issue with the latest and final Antorus LFR wing:
      And finally, a reminder on the new Wakening Essence legendary vendor and his interaction with bad luck protection:
