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.

      Many players seem to be having trouble getting their Feldrake mount Twitch rewards and are  asking for help and asking what to do. There doesn't seem to be a definitive answer or solution, unfortunately, but several players have offered a couple of potential workarounds that might work, so let's take a look.
      Again none of this is guaranteed, but considering responses to tickets are "we can't help you, but are looking into it", they may be worth a try. So first off, actually claiming the mount seems to be working, as in clicking the claim button on Twitch, however players aren't finding the mount in the game.
      First things first, make sure to check in the right place - the top of the mount journal where the mount will appear as a present box, similar to the Dragon Kite for pets.

      Source.
      The second thing you can try is re-syncing/reconnecting your battle.net with your Twitch account, waiting a few minutes, and hope that updates the process, as it did work for some players (source). You can go to your battle.net connections page and try reconnecting Twitch there.

      And lastly, if the above didn't work, you may be one of the unfortunate players affected by a known issue Blizzard are working on. This will get resolved eventually, so just be patient and wait for a fix, but know you're not alone with this issue.

      Hopefully some of this helps and you can get your Feldrake soon, or at least puts you at ease that Blizzard are working on it.

      Blizzard have announced a huge slate of class tuning, going over 10 classes in PvE, as well as a big buff to tank threat, and also changing 9 classes in PvP.
      December 6 (Source)
      We’re working on a slate of tuning adjustments to classes in Dragonflight. The following changes are scheduled to be implemented with weekly maintenance, Tuesday, December 6 in this region.
      Tank Specializations
      Tank-specialized characters now generate 650% additional threat (was 550%). Developers’ notes: We’ve heard feedback that on-pull burst in dungeon content is causing damage dealers to pull threat more often than is desirable. This change represents roughly a 15% increase to tank threat generation, which should help alleviate these cases, while still requiring tanks to actively engage with enemies to hold threat. Demon Hunter
      The Hunt damage reduced by 10%. Fodder to the Flame proc rate no longer scales with Haste. Druid
      Restoration Regrowth healing decreased by 6%. Hunter
      Steel Trap damage has been reduced by 20%. Explosive Shot damage has been increased by 15%. Barrage damage has been increased by 15%. Marksmanship All damage increased by 10%. Heavy Ammo now causes Trick Shot ricochets to deal an additional 25% damage (was 10%). Survival All damage increased by 5%. Mage
      Fire Flamestrike damage increased by 8%. Pyroblast damage increased by 5%. Fireball damage increased by 10%. Scorch damage increased by 10%. Ignite damage increased by 5%. Rogue
      Assassination Exsanguinate cooldown increased to 3 minutes (was 45 seconds) and bleed effect magnitude reduced to 80% (was 100%). Developers’ notes: Recent data indicates that Exsanguinate is drastically overperforming its historic and intended power level. We recognize that this is a heavy nerf for an individual talent, but it is important that Exsanguinate’s power be similar to alternative available talent choices. We see this as a temporary measure as we head towards the opening of Dragonflight’s first season, and we will reconsider Exsanguinate’s position and role as an available talent for Assassination. We may move, replace, or redesign it in a future patch. Monk
      Brewmaster Brewmaster’s Balance now grants 45% increased stamina (was 30%). Mistweaver Awakened Faeline Spinning Crane Kick now heals 3 nearby allies for 60% of the damage done (was 50%). Vivify heal to primary target increased by 20%. Peaceful Mending now increases healing received by Enveloping Mist and Renewing Mist by 15/30% (was 10/20%). Yu’lon’s Whisper now heals 5 targets (was 6), and healing increased by 15%. Paladin
      Protection Aegis of Light now grants 50% increased stamina (was 45%) and 30% increased armor (was 15%). Shaman
      Restoration All healing spells healing increased by 5%. Acid Rain damage increased by 50%. Warlock
      Soul Leech now converts 3% of damage dealt to an absorb shield (was 6%). Warrior
      Arms Fueled by Violence now heals for 85% of the damage done by Deep Wounds (was 65%). Protection Fueled by Violence now heals for 85% of the damage done by Deep Wounds (was 65%). Brutal Vitality now causes 15% of the damage you deal to add to your active Ignore Pain (was 30%). Player versus Player
      Thank you to those who participated in and provided feedback during the Play with the Blues event in the Dragonflight Beta a few weeks back, as it gave us valuable data and information. That, alongside what we’ve observed on live realms since Dragonflight’s launch, contributed to these PvP adjustments as we head into Season 1.
      Death Knight
      Anti-Magic Shell absorption amount reduced by 25% in PvP combat. Will of the Necropolis damage reduction reduced by 50% in PvP in combat. Anti-Magic Barrier increase to Anti-Magic Shell duration and amount absorbed has been reduced by 50% in PvP combat. Abomination Limb will no longer pull individual enemy players more than once over its duration (was every 4 seconds). Improved Death Strike increase to Death Strike’s healing has been reduced by 50% in PvP combat. Frost Death Strike’s healing increased based on recent damage is reduced by 50% if the damage was dealt by players or their pets. Unholy Death Strike’s healing increased based on recent damage is reduced by 50% if the damage was dealt by players or their pets. Developers’ notes: Death Knight survivability has been substantially higher than we’re comfortable with, so we’re targeting several aspects of their defensive kit. We feel that with these adjustments, Death Knights will maintain durability with options to counterplay defensively. Additionally, the multiple grips from Abomination Limb created scenarios of unfun gameplay with minimal counterplay in PvP. We’re changing this talent to be able to pull in a unique player in once per talent usage. We believe this change will allow the talent to be an attractive talent to pick while maintaining counterplay options for opponents. Druid
      Restoration Budding Leaves is now 70% effective in PvP combat. Fixed an issue that caused Focused Growth’s buff to only apply to one Lifebloom at a time while using the Undergrowth talent. Developers’ notes: Lifebloom has been a higher percentage of Druid healing’s breakdown in PvP than we’d like, so we’re reducing Budding Leaves to bring it more in line. Evoker
      Scarlet Adaptation’s cap is reduced by 30% in PvP combat. Fire Breath’s initial damage is reduced by 30% in PvP combat. Disintegrate and Pyre deal 15% increased damage in PvP combat. Developers’ notes: The goal of this tuning change is to reduce the very high burst from fully charged Fire Breath, which we felt was unfair, as it had the potential to kill enemy players without any time to react. Living Flame also had the potential to deal high burst with all of its modifiers combined together, so we’re reducing Scarlet Adaptation’s cap in PvP. To compensate for the lost power, we’re increasing the damage of Disintegrate and Pyre so that Evoker can contribute more meaningful consistent damage. Note that this will affect both Devastation and Preservation specializations. Preservation Mana regeneration is reduced by an additional 10% in PvP combat. Developers’ notes: All healers have reduced mana regeneration in PvP, so that fights end after a reasonable period of time. Preservation receiving this reduction brings them closer in line with the other healers so that mana is relevant in PvP. Mage
      Arcane Nether Precision is now 75% effective in PvP combat. Prodigious Savant is now 80% effective in PvP combat. Arcane Bombardment is now 65% effective in PvP combat. Developers’ notes: We’re looking to address Arcane’s instant burst damage through adjustments targeting Arcane Blast and Arcane Barrage modifiers. Arcane Bombardment in particular has been too powerful of an execute effect in PvP for its current availability. Frost Piercing Cold is now 50% effective in PvP combat. Ice Lance damage increased by 20% in PvP combat. (PvP Talent) Snowdrift no longer has a cast time (was 1.5 seconds). (PvP Talent) Snowdrift’s cooldown reduced to 45 seconds (was 60 seconds). Developers’ notes: Glacial Spike critical strikes are hitting harder than we would like, despite the long cast time attached to this spell. We’re reducing Piercing Cold’s critical strike damage modifier in PvP to help address this without impacting the base damage of the spell. We’re also increasing the damage of Ice lance as the Splitting Ice talent is less valuable in PvP, given the unpredictable and constant movement of players. Additionally, Snowdrift has been requiring more ramp up than intended, so we’re removing its cast time and lowering its cooldown. Monk
      Mistweaver Ancient Teachings of the Monastery now heals for 375% of damage done (was 240%) in PvP combat. Developers’ notes: We would like to see more aggressive playstyles from Mistweaver Monk to be possible in PvP, so we’re targeting Ancient Teaching of the Monastery to bolster the playstyle. Rogue
      Echoing Reprimand damage is reduced by 30% in PvP combat. Developers’ notes: We’ve seen that the ability could have extremely high burst, more than we’re comfortable with, so we are partially reverting the change made in last week’s hotfixes, where Echoing Reprimand’s damage was no longer reduced in PvP. Shaman
      Enhancement Improved Maelstrom Weapon increases the damage and healing of spells by 8%/15% per stack of Maelstrom Weapon in PvP Combat (was 10%/20%). Raging Maelstrom increases the effectiveness of Maelstrom Weapon stacks by 3% in PvP Combat (was 5%). Stormstrike and Windstrike damage increased by 30% in PvP combat. Developers’ notes: Damage and healing from fully stacked Maelstrom Weapon are higher than intended in PvP, so we’re reducing the value of the associated talents. Separately, we’d like for Enhancement’s sustained damage to be more well-rounded in PvP, so we’re increasing Stormstrike’s damage. Elemental Magma Chamber effectiveness reduced by 50% in PvP combat. Developers’ notes: Earth Shock and Elemental Blast from Elemental Shamans deal more damage than intended with high stacks of Magma Chamber, so we are lowering its effect in PvP. Warlock
      Curse of Tongues reduces cast time by 10% in PvP combat (was 15%). Curse of Tongues applied through Amplify Curse reduces cast time by 20% in PvP Combat (was 35%). Developers’ notes: We’re reducing the overall power of Curse of Tongues in PvP. We’d like for the spell to be valuable to cast, but not cause casters to have a frustrating time trying to cast spells. Warrior
      Arms Mortal Strike’s damage is no longer reduced by 30% in PvP combat. Sharpened Blades now increases critical strike damage by 5% (was 10%) in PvP combat. Martial Prowess now increases Mortal Strike’s damage by 15% per stack (was 30%) in PvP combat. Execute damage increased by 20% in PvP combat (Arms only). Rend damage reduced by 15% in PvP combat (Arms only). Developers’ notes: We’re looking to increase Mortal Strike’s consistent damage while keeping its burst potential in line through targeted adjustments to its modifiers. We’re also reducing Rend’s damage in PvP as Skullsplitter has been a culprit for one-shots. We’re finalizing additional tuning, and we will continue to keep an eye on class balance over the next week, as we have additional adjustments planned for the week of December 13 (the beginning of Season 1).
