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.

Hello!

 

Thank you for a great guide! I have one problem thought. I have two action bars of the same type. Like copies of everything. What can I do to fix this?

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.

      Blizzard has changed the eye color of Dark Ranger Captain Delaryn Summermoon in Patch 9.2.5. Delaryn was raised by Sylvanas during the Battle for Darkshore. In this post, we speculate about the eye change in more detail.
      Delaryn Summermoon was the captain of the Darnassian City Guard and a commander of the night elven forces who fought during the War of Thorns. She was raised into undeath as a dark ranger of the Forsaken during the Battle for Darkshore. She along with other undead night elves sought Calia Menethil to help them.
      Source: Wowpedia
      Delaryn's eyes currently have a red/blueish Death Knight glow on live servers and they gave her proper red eyes in Patch 9.2.5. The customization option exists in the game files for a while now and isn't exactly new. Below you can see her updated eyes in mode detail. Thanks to simaia and MrGM for spotting the change.
      Placeholder for tweet 1528735870441771011 What could the new eye color mean? For one, we have rumors circulating about a potential Dragonflight pre-order Allied Race. We also know that something's brewing in Lordaeron with updates to Brill and Calia Menethil. Do you think Calia might end up leading the fallen Night Elves that have been raised by Sylvanas (dark rangers) or could this be a Hunter customization option like the Night Warrior? Let us know down in the comments!
      Keep in mind that nothing has been confirmed by Blizzard yet and we'll need to wait until the update goes live.

      Grimrail Depot will be added to the Mythic+ pool of dungeons in Shadowlands Season 4. Here's a sample +10 run of the Warlords of Draenor dungeon from the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      The sample run includes testing of the new Season 4 Affix called Shrouded. Thanks to MrGM for the video.
      Blizzard added a new accessibility option for players that hides moving environment pieces in Maw of Souls and Grimrail Depot. You can buy the elixir from an NPC at the beginning of both dungeons.

      Heartbond Lupine received a new flying animation in Patch 9.2.5. In this post, we compare the old and new animations in more detail.
      Heartbond Lupine is a mount added in Patch 9.2 that comes from Protoform Synthesis. Its current flying animation makes it look as if the mount was swimming in the air. 

      In Patch 9.2.5 the flying run animation has been updated as you can see below. The mount no longer swims but walks in the air.

      Which animation do you prefer? Let us know in the comments!

      We have a pretty great new Easter egg coming with patch 9.2.5, featuring all the Windrunner siblings, a musical scene, and some props! As spotted by The Lost Codex, Windrunner Spire is getting a reference to the recent Sylvanas book in the form of 4 items scattered around the statue (with the bow actually being related to Sylvanas, not the arrow as noted later):
      Some theorized that the order in which the characters disappear after the scene ends had some meaning, but it seems to be random, and sometimes they stick around for quite a while longer as well:
