ElvUI: a Comprehensive Guide

Recommended Posts

I have tried both enabling as an experience bar and disabling.  I still can't find any way to show a rep bar anywhere.  This is for a level 110 toon.  On a level 103 toon, my exp bar shows up on the left side, but there is also no rep bar anywhere nor can I find a way to enable one.  Maybe I'm just retarded!

Open your chapter panel and on the bottom there should be a tab that says reputation (or press the 'U' key by default) to open the reputation panel.  From there you click on the rep you want to follow and click the 'show as experience bar' box.

So I've downloaded ElvUI and tried setting it up with this guide. However, there seems to have been an update, so the guide doesn't quite correspond to the options in the ElvUI config anymore. The main issue for me at this point is that I'm just overwhelmed with options. I looked around for profiles to download, so I'd at least have some sort of a start-up from which I can adjust things to my liking, but they all require tons of other addons as well. As a raid healer (holy priest), I use VuhDo for my healing, so I would integrate that, one way or the other, but at this point, there's just so much going on and there are so many things to adjust that I'm considering going back to the regular Blizzard UI simply because I have no idea where to start.

Is there anyone that can help me out with a basic healer UI that doesn't require tons of extra addons, or that can point me in the right direction? I understand that being able to adjust everything to your liking is awesome, but it's a tad overwhelming for first-time users.

Hi,

thanks for the guide - helped me get into ElvUI quickly. I'm not using any other Add-On for unit frames, but the role of each member is only shown in raids - it just disappears in a 5-man party. How do I enable this to be as it is in vanilla UI?

Also: How can I change the color of my own player frame? I don't like how grey it is :(

Can you please elaborate what exact options in the configuration don't correspond to the guide anymore so I'd update them? No one pointed to this kind of problems in Legion so frankly, I didn't check the basic setup process recently.

I can share my profile but have a question here too - what to you mean by tons of other addons that you must have to use somebody else's profile?

I use ElvUI+VuhDo, the rest of addons that I use in raids (DBM, GTFO, WA, AA) are completely optional and don't affect the healing in any way.

Btw, you can pick a generic profile in ElvUI config window->Profiles, so you wouldn't start from a scratch.

@Pandacho I've noticed the same as @LadyAndraste while configuring my ElvUI. This is mainly an issue concerning the "dropdown menus" - I just couldn't find them. I think they have been moved or revamped into tabs, they're just not where you'd expect them as seen in your screenshots. The sections "Minimap", "Name plates" and partly "Unit frames" have experienced some changes from what I've gathered.

It's true that it's a tad overwhelming for first-time users but unless you find install add-ons and then download profile, you won't find a already done Healer UI.

You should be able to do something nice with Elvui + Vudho for your UI. The guide for Vudho on icy-veins is simple to understand and will help you a lot to  setup it. For others Addon like DBM / WA / etc. It's all up to you to use them, they're not required.

Ah, right. This was changed in the 04/09 update :-/

Thanks for reminding me, I will update the guide and include my current profile for people that are not interested to start from a scratch.

I just updated the guide for the latest ElvUI version (10.21) and added my profiles.

Thanks for pointing at the outdated stuff ^^

Thank you for so much information and easy to follow steps too. Elvui is now my favorite UI.

Somebody know how to change this background 

Did you download somebody else's UI package or ElvUI plugins? I never saw this in the standard ElvUI.

First of all, thanks for your reply and my apologies for getting back to you only now. The other addons (like DBM and GTFO) I have too, but when I looked up profiles, those all required me to download other addons as well - I don't quite remember names now. I'll try to import your profiles and see if I can make that work, ty!!

You can definitely try my profiles - they don't require anything additional to install.

This is the reason for the errors you get.

Sorry, all the profiles work only for the same language client. it is possible to change (translate) things directly in .lua file but this is the common problem - WA, ElvUI, VuhDo profiles give errors when trying to import them to non-english clients.

You said you have 2 profiles but I can't figure out how to import them? I tried to copy and paste but that doesn't work. So how do we import a profile?

Okay, I checked and it turns out that the forum editor corrupts the code :(

I fixed it but you still have to remove the last space that editor adds after the string (it should finish with ==)

Spoiler

This is what you get after the Import:

Remove this line and you'll get this:

Very sorry if this has been asked previously, I have not found it asked before. I am having trouble getting rid of the action bars that come equipped with blizzard's UI after following your guide. I have messed with WoW's menu to no avail. When I click and drag spells from the ElvUI's action bars it also replaces the standard blizzard action bars with the same spells. So I have duplicate bars. Am I missing something? Ive attached a screen shot of what my UI looks like. I will say that I had A LOT of addons installed prior to installing ElvUI and have disabled most of them except skada/handynotes/mapcoords/dbm/GTFO/ackis/raid assist/cat rotation helper/rotation helper/tomtom/garrison mission manager/zygor/gnome sequencer. 

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

      This WeakAura for MoP Remix gives you a quick view of your cloak's current stats.
      Normally, you have to hover your mouse over the buff to see your cloak's stats.

      But with the Timerunner Cloak Stats WeakAura, you'll always have a tab showing a quick preview of the main stats on your Cloak of Infinite Potential, as shown in the screenshot.

      To make the WeakAura work, you must first install WeakAuras.

      After the Frog Farm nerf, players in MoP Remix have found a new farming spot with Goats!
      In MoP Remix, many players are now farming Goats instead of Frogs. Although the new Goat farm isn’t as profitable, it's become the new go-to spot.

      How Does the New Goat Farm Work?
      To start farming goats, head to the location in Valley of the Four Winds shown below. Screenshot courtesy of NexerdGamer.

      The Goat farm is straightforward: fly around the designated area until you find packs of goats and kill them. There’s always at least one pack available at any time.
      For more details check out the following video by NexerdGamer.

      MoP Remix is the big focus on the retail side of things, as we get many new fixes, in addition to the major changes announced earlier today. We also get some developer notes on those big changes, as well as more class improvements in Cataclysm Classic.
      May 20 (Source)
      WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria
      Shirts and tabards can now be purchased from Larah Treebender at any Infinite Bazaar, Mei Steadypaw outside the Shrine of Two Moons and the Shrine of Seven Stars, and Hanchoon Yi at Paw’don Village, Honeydew Village, Shrine of Two Moons, and Shrine of Seven Stars. Fixed a bug preventing Timerunners with a legendary Infinite Cloak of Potential from accessing Ordon Sanctuary as intended. Fixed an issue with the spawning of Voress’thalik which prevented the completion of “Devastation Below”. Fixed an issue preventing players from learning Amber Pterrordax. Fixed a bug causing Gulp Frogs to unintentionally drop Lesser Charms of Good Fortune. Enemy power scaling, particularly in group content, has been adjusted to be less aggressive. This is particularly applicable in the player level 40 - 70 range, before players have been able to power up their cloak, upgrade their gems, and increase their item level. Gear drop-rates have been improved from world rares, rare elites, and quests. This will help players who have had their item levels fall behind as leveling speed increases, especially at higher levels when cloak bonus experience is powered up. Developers’ notes: This will also increase player Bronze and appearance acquisition by increasing the number of items to place into the Unraveling Sands for additional Bronze. The first-time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a Thread of Experience in addition to the existing Lesser Bronze Cache. Developers’ notes: This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly. We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience. We’ve increased the number of prismatic gems dropped from bosses in normal and heroic scenarios and dungeons. Developers’ notes: The increased stamina offered by Legendary Prismatic gems boosts player survivability considerably. We have increased the Bronze granted from all qualities of Bronze Caches by 25%. Developers’ notes: These caches are available from a wide variety of sources, both solo and group. This includes the Minor Bronze Cache, Lesser Bronze Cache, Bronze Cache, and Greater Bronze Cache. Fixed an issue where Sha-Skin Vestment was marked as Cosmetic instead of Cloth armor. Cataclysm Classic
      Players may skip directly to the beginning of Vashj’ir using a portal in their respective cities. “Vashj’ir: Call of Duty” will remain available to players who skipped directly to “Sea Legs”. Hunter Ancient Hysteria from Hunter Core Hound pets has been renamed Primal Rage. The debuff it causes has been renamed from Insanity to Fatigued. Fixed a bug preventing pets from displaying in the Stable as intended. Mage When Combustion gains damage from Ignite, that Ignite damage will not get increased a second time from Fire Mage Mastery Flashburn. It was already increased once by Flashburn when first applied.
