ElvUI: a Comprehensive 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.

Hello,

There is an addon that was actually showing the textures for Rare/Boss/Elite mobs in ElvUI but it wasn't updated for about a year now so I don't know whether it still works.

ElvUI itself doesn't have a build-in texture for Rare mobs but there are still ways to see the difference.

Go to UnitFrames-> Target Frame-> choose Health in the dropdown menu.

Add [shortclassification] to the Text Format line to see letter "R" after the name of mob or add [classification] there to see the full word "Rare".

Here's a screenshot showing it:

Is there a way to create a non-backround for the raid-frame?

I've only found the different colores... :(

I think that you have to install ElvUI Shadow & Light Edit  in addition to regular ElvUI to be able to work with the backgrounds,

1. What Orthios said: commands are /ec or /elvui

2. Give the addon a couple of days to update properly :) There are always issues with addons after big patches, just a bit of patience and it will be resolved.

3. Regarding this specific problem you posted, here's the creators answer:

Please have a look at this Link: http://www.tukui.org/forums/topic.php?id=36289

You just updated your ElvUI too early. As the Pre Patch is not Live yet! ElvUI v10.01 is for Legion (pre Patch)

So roll back your ElvUI using the link from the quote.

You shouldn't see any Blizzard frames or graphic with ElvUI enabled. If you still do, check whether you are on the right version of ElvUI and whether you don't have any other addons that change action bars (like Bartender) enabled.

Guys, it's a start of new expansion - addons have a lot of bugs that are being addressed but it takes some time :).

Check for the last version of ElvUI here (right side), it's being updated every day.

Tank Frames in ElvUI have only their target. There was a request about a year ago to write an addition (e.g. target of target for tank frames) but the addon creators gave it very low profile in "to do things".

I believe you can just use a Focus frame for the tank and see target of target there.

I'm a returning player and have DL'd this interface. It's pretty awesome lol.

The problem I'm encountering so far is my repair indicator is inside my mini-map. Where is the option to move it around located? I've searched everywhere!

Can you post 2 screenshots please - one normal and the other one in Toggle Anchors mode? Repair indicator is a part of Data Texts that can be attached to minimap, chat and action bars so I think you somehow added Repairs to minimap data but I rather see the screenshots :)

i did what ever you sad but when i log in wow there is no addons button there is menu button what i have to do pls help

I'm not sure what are you talking about?

'Addons' button is on the Character selection screen - before you log in with specific character.

If you are looking for the 'C' button, it was removed in pre-patch. ElvUI config now can be reached from the Main Menu (in game press Esc button-> press ElvUI button) or by typing /ec in chat.

If you have the 'addons' folder, you should see the button. Please check that you really have it: the standard path to the folder will be "...Program Files( x86) > World of Warcraft > interface > addons.

Inside this folder you should have a lot of subfolders including two folders of ElvUI: ElvUI and ElvUI Config:

I really like ElvUI, but there are certain things that really annoy me.  

1)   I cant seem to figure out how to add the time stamp to my chat windows, and 2)  I cant seem to figure out how to change the health/mana in the nameplates, target plates.. ie.  my health says it is 361k, but I want to see 361,400 instead and a percentage of health remaining right next to it.  And I want to change the font/colors.  3) As was posted above, I would really like to see the sliver dragon or gold dragon for elite mobs to be able to differentiate.

      Doubleagent has just hit level 62 on the Wandering Isles. 
      Everyone’s favorite neutral Pandaren Shaman has reached Level 62 a few moments ago. Only 8 more levels to go. 
      It takes Doubleagent about 12 hours to ding a level.

      It seems some server issues have returned as US players have been reporting renewed trouble with loading screens and world server down errors. EU maintenance is currently also in effect, but apparently US servers are also having issues.

      We just wanted to point it out in case some players were worried that it was just them: if you're playing on EU servers, maintenance started about 50 minutes ago at 3:00 AM CET and is scheduled to end at 4:00 AM, and if you're playing on US servers, you're not alone - many have reported problems in the past 30 minutes or so, after a pretty clean day of regular play.
      stuck in loading screen, anyone else? World server down AGAIN?? Area 52 is dead again World Server is Down error Load screen stops at fully loaded Transfer aborted: instance not found loop Connection Issue World servers are going down everywhere, here comes blizzard with the “it’s the hackers fault”

      Blizzard have posted the known issues list today and updated it just now with some mining issues, so let's take a look! 
      Known Issues (Source)
      Classes
      Demon Hunter
      Shattered Restoration does not increase the healing of Soul Fragments from Shattered Souls, and does not update the tooltip values of Shattered Souls. Infernal Armor thorns damage tooltip value does not update with second rank with talent point unallocated. Vengeance Fodder to the Flame Condemned Demon does not die with one Throw Glaive. Druid
      Feral Freedom of the Herd (PvP) tooltip mentions incorrect cooldown reduction. Evoker
      Casting an empower spell when the Thundering affix buffs are applied causes the cast bar to desync. Hunter
      Call of the Wild summoned pets temporarily prevent the use of Mend Pet. Serrated Shots does not increase damage from Hit the Mark. Animal Companion reduces the damage done by Call of the Wild. Wind Arrow is doubly affected by Mastery: Sniper Training. Sentinel Owl highlight will display as a loot beam animation if Outline Mode is disabled. Quick Shot will not proc if your weapon is transmogrified to a different weapon type. Paladin
      Protection Shining Light secondary proc does not appear on Personal Resource UI. Rogue
      Dungeon and Raid enemies are immune to Distract. Shaman
      Lightning, Earth, and Water Shields’ auras disappear upon entering an instance or logging out. Dragonriding
      Renewed Proto-Drake and Highland Drake UI will break when previewing other drakes with the Storm-Eater and Crimson Gladiator Skin on. Dungeons and Raids
      Ruby Life Pools Kyrakka has no aggro table until it has fully landed at 50% health. If Kyrakka is defeated before Erkhart, the Flaming Embers pools of area denial do not harm players. Scholomance Warriors’ Charge ability can cause a disconnect or death. Temple of the Jade Serpent Warriors’ Charge ability can cause a disconnect or death. Items
      Kharnalex, The First Light displays ‘Adventurer’ as an eligible class. Player Characters
      The Leather Renown transmog set is available to everyone. Pandaren may display pink, un-textured hair in the transmog window for backpacks. There are unobtainable appearances in two Dracthyr Battlegear transmog Sets, preventing completion of the sets. Player versus Player
      Players are unable to earn Vicious Saddles during Dragonflight Season 1. Enigma Crucible and Empyrean Domain are unavailable. Nokhudon Proving Grounds Ground-targeted abilities (such as Ring of Frost or Rain of Fire) that are cast on the ramps located in the arena can be difficult to see. Professions
      Crafting Orders that have expired or are canceled will display an ‘Order Complete!’ text at the top right of the window despite the order not being fulfilled. Mining The Titan-Touched sub-path for the Master of the Elements Specialization tree is incorrectly showing the description for the 40 point capper as the unlock point capper and vice versa. The intended effect is that unlocking Titan Touched provides a short term player buff when you mine the node, and the Titan-Touched 40 point capper unlocks the ability to return to portals created by Overloading Titan-Touched nodes. Quests
      On “The Other Side”, one character opening the vault does so for other characters. In the Darkshore Warfront, Maiev Shadowsong will reset after casting “Mass Vengeance”. In the Destruction Warlock Mage Tower, Jormog the Behemoth and its abilities are invisible, and Tugar Bloodtotem can appear to be a female human. Ohn’ahrahn Plains Initiate Zorig does not appear for turn in of “Desecrator Annihilator” or “Reagents of De-Necromancy”. On “Maruukai”, carts are sinking into ground on the uneven terrain. On “Proto Problems”, Hypoxicron is landing mid-air. Ronsak the Decimator does not create a bonus objective/quest. Scaleseeker Mezeri does not create a bonus quest. Eaglemaster Niraak does not create a bonus quest. Windseeker Avash does not create a bonus quest. “The Nokhud Offensive: Founders Keepers” is missing quest loot. Thaldraszus On “The Once and Future Team”, abandoning the Quest after defeating the Colossal Causality changes the number of the Timewalker Wardens that approach. On “Banquet Battle” interacting with tables causes unexpected camera behavior. Resetting the “Ancient Protector” Bonus Objective encounter will cause the Ancient Protector to be untargetable. The Forbidden Reach “Final Order” displays empty quest text at turn-in while in-progress. User Interface
      On the character select screen, characters cannot be moved via drag-and-drop. The UI can only display four rewards for Major Factions - Renown Rewards. Press-and-Hold can have a casting delay compared to repeatedly pressing the key. In Ohn’ahran Plains, area texts on the Map are in incorrect locations. Map and minimap icons may disappear while in Valdrakken. For those just returning or who otherwise need to be caught up we have guides for both new and returning players.
      As with any update, it is important to make sure that if you use addons that they have been updated.

      According to player reports, the Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder is still required to fly in Kul Tiras and Zandalar on live servers.
      Battle for Azeroth is two expansions old with the launch of Dragonflight and when Shadowlands was released, Blizzard made Warlords of Draenor flying available to everyone with the Pathfinder still rewarding the mount.
      However, now that Dragonflight is live, this does not seem to be the case.
      The achievement still requires BfA flyting and the  Wonderwing 2.0 mount.
