ElvUI: a Comprehensive Guide

Recommended Posts

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.

 

1) ElvUI config->Chat->Chat Timestamps - the dropdown menu is right there in the middle.

2) ElvUI config->UnitFrames->Player Frame (Target Frame, whatever other frame)->'Health' in the right dropdown menu->'Text Format' line - hover your mouse above the line and you'll see a tooltip with a lot of possible format strings for Health.

Then choose 'Power' in dropdown menu - it's the same process for Mana.

You can change font and color for Unit Frames all together, not one by one: choose UnitFrames (the main section) and scroll down a bit - it's all there.

3) You can't see dragons in ElvUI but you can add [shortclassification] to the Target Frame Health Text Line and it will add 'Rare' or 'Elite' to the frame.

idk what i did but now ive got these floating name plates everywhere and i cant figure out how to disable them. see pic for details.

Also, I did an LFR and not really sure I am a fan of the raid frames, is there something that will make it easier for me to see who needs healing??? slightly darker gray on regular grey doesnt really help

Thank you!  I ended up finding the timestamp thing.  The unit frames are a little frustrating to work with.

Not that bad :) You actually have to sort out only one type of a frame and then there's an option to copy the configuration to any other type or sub-type. So for all the other frames you will have only to tweak some things.

Did you perhaps press Shift + V? That should turn on/off Friendly NPC names.

1. As PaasHaaS said - check that you didn't press Ctrl+V, if it wouldn't help go to ElvUI config->NamePlates line and uncheck 'Enable'. See if it'll make you feel better.

2. ElvUI is not a healing addon. It's possible to use it but I really wouldn't recommend. Try VuhDo - here's the guide, and this is how it looks in raid (green frames in the middle):

Hi I am new here and so far I love the ELVui addon, I only have 2 things which are driving me crazy, and I've looked all night for the answers or how to disable / fix them.

I am trying to find a way to hide the "Raid Control" icon when I am in a raid /  party and I have been unsucessfull on removing this.

The second thing is on the bottom right hand corner of my UI you will see the name of the player, gearscore, and the health bar with the color of the class. Is there a way to remove the health bar of whoever you are hovering over so it looks close to default as possible? 

thank you!

Hello!

1. To disable Raid Control, go to ... ElvUI\modules\misc\raidUtility.lua file, open it in Wordpad and jump to

--Check if We are Raid Leader or Raid Officer
local function CheckRaidStatus()
    local inInstance, instanceType = IsInInstance()
    if ((IsInGroup() and not IsInRaid()) or UnitIsGroupLeader('player') or UnitIsGroupAssistant("player")) and not (inInstance and (instanceType == "pvp" or instanceType == "arena")) then
        return
true
    else
        return false
    end

 

Change 'true' to 'false' - worked for me today.

 

2. What you see in the bottom right corner is a Tooltip. If you want it in the classic Blizzard style, go to ElvUI config and uncheck 'Enable' in 'Tooltip' line of the menu.

I'm not sure what do you mean by macro here, you should type this into the 'Visibility State' window of your Action Bar.

The right syntax would be:

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

Thank you for the easy step by step installation instructions. I can't wait to play with my new ui! I was able to get it to load once. My game crashed and now I can't log back in- I get a 134 error. Any ideas as to why this is happening or how to fix it? Thanks!

Sorry to hear about it but it has nothing to do with ElvUI :(

Looks like there's some problem on US servers today with a lot of people experience this error.

Blizzard reaction is here.

Sorry, I wasn't able to understand what exactly you want to achieve :( On your second screenshot you are pointing at Grid addon while this thread is for ElvUI.

If you are talking about the window with 'Interface' on the top, it's the main game config window and you can't move it around without some specific addons. Neither you can access most of configurations during fights. 

It's still not a part of ElvUI. You can move ElvUI config window around on the screen holding and dragging it by the 'ElvUI' word on the top. It is not accessible during fights.

Can you please post a screenshot of these bars in normal mode and anchors (the mode you use to move around ElvUI bars)

Hello,

How can I remove the durability, time, gold at the bottom of the interface?

For example, this : e13caeebfe.png

Thank you !

Go to Datatext in the left menu, choose 'Panels' tab in the right side window, uncheck Datatext Panel (Left) and Datatext Panel (Right). You didn't post a full screenshot so I don't know which one of two it is.

      During one raid, we got to see the Fyr'alath bad luck protection buff work wonders, yielding 12 drops from a single Fyrakk kill.
      Sacolas shared an interesting shot on Reddit, showing 12 Fyr'alaths dropping simultaneously! This might just be the record for the most Fyr'alath the Dreamrender drops we've seen from a single kill to date. Sadly, the original poster missed out on the quest item, and looted instead a Greater Ember of Fyr'alath. Here's hoping for better luck next week!

      What's the highest number of Fyr'alaths you've seen drop from one kill? Let us know in the comments below!

      The World Quest for Fathom Dweller is finally up on EU servers after almost a year. Check out how to summon Kosumoth the Hungering and get the mount before others do!
      Here's what the mount looks like.

      The quest won't pop up by itself. Instead, you must unlock it.
      First, download a WoW Addon that shows you coordinates to figure out where you are and where you need to be. Something like MapCoords or TomTom will do. Head to Broken Shore 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul. Head to 57/52 and enter the Musty Cave. Click on the Mound of Dirt that is hard to notice. You will receive Weathered Relic. Return to 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul again and go through all his dialog options. Now comes the more difficult part. You must click on 10 Hungering Orbs in the exact order. If another player clicks on them, it takes approximately 20 minutes for them to become clickable again, so they have a cooldown. Here are coords for all the Hungering Orbs: Azsuna: 37/37: The first orb is located in a secret cave behind the tree. Stormheim: 33/75: The second orb is located in a cave where Kangaxx is. Val'sharah 41/80 Find another secret cave located inside a tree. The third orb is guarded by an Elemental.  Broken Shore 31/76: You will find an underwater cave that hides the fourth orb. Azsuna 59/12: Behind the crystals is yet another secret cave. The fifth orb is located on the ground next to a broken table. Stormheim 67/14: Near the underwater shark is a crevice that leads to a cave that contains the sixth orb. Try to avoid the steams, as they deal high damage. This orb may be the most difficult for you to get. Highmountain 52/36: Enter the Haglands and follow the path to your right. Above halfway down (55/36), you want to jump down to a ledge with a cave. Do not enter the first cave since it's a decoy. Instead, turn right and head to the actual cave to find the seventh orb. Azsuna 54/26: Under the bushes near a tree is another secret cave. The eighth orb is somewhat hidden, too, located in a bush near a pillar inside the cave. Broken Isles World Map 50/91: Find underwater wreckage to get through a secret cave. This one is hard to explain, so we advise you to check out MadSeasonShow's video (timestamp). You will find the ninth orb to your right. Broken Shore 37/71: Head back to Drak'thul and click the final orb on the table behind him. After you click it, the DANGER: Kosumoth the Hungering World Quest spawns at 46/49 on the Broken Isles World Map. Kill Kosumoth to receive Fathom Dweller. Note that you have a chance to get the Hungering Claw instead of the mount. It just so happens that the reward is the mount right now. Check out the video guide by MadSeasonShow for more details!

      Blizzard have announced that they will be significantly changing the Oracle Priest Hero Talent tree, following player feedback and internal testing. It seems the tree's focus will no longer be on replacing Power Infusion.
      Oracle Hero Talents (Source)
      Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the Oracle Hero Talent tree.
      One of our goals in sharing these Hero Talent trees so early in the process was to give us adequate time to evaluate and change things as necessary. After reading your feedback, discussing the talent tree, and playtesting the concept internally, we’ve decided to revisit the Oracle tree, especially regarding its focus on replacing Power Infusion.
      Thanks again!
