I would like to pose a few questions and share some thoughts regarding the trinket Draught of Souls.
It seems that you should never use SoF and DoS at the same time since the clonens don't rage while you do.
How do I use DoS in the opener? It enhances ToD's dmg through Gale Burst but at the same time you are not able to make full use of SEF since you are unable to make any actions during the 3 secs of channeling. So do you delay the DoS use until after clones have gone or do you delay clones? I believe DoS does way more dmg during the Fel-Crazed Rage than the clones would in the 3 secs. But what about the remaining 5 secs. of ToD? Do you use SEF right after DoS and then Fists of Fury or Strike of the Windlord?
What buffs/stats applies to the DoS use effect? Does Hit Combo? Because then you would like to have it stacked to 8 before using DoS. And then it might be better to delay the trinket until after clones are gone losing the trinket dmg in Gale Burst...
After the first use how do you proceed? Just use it on CD (outside SEF) or line it up with anything interesting?
Looking forward to interesting input. Seems like the monks in the forum are laying low.
Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 1/10M NH, 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV. As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern. Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game. However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
Thank you for your consideration
Violentnacho & the Guild
We Tried is a mythic progression raiding guild formed by an ambitious raid leader seeking like minded, progression oriented players who would work together towards clearing the latest content while it is still considered relevant. After suffering some roster issues, We Tried merged with Procrastination in late December 2016 and together we have fully cleared Emerald Nightmare Mythic within just two weeks.
OUR PAST ACCOMPLISHMENTS & FUTURE GOALS
Although we have since slowed down, we are proud ourselves of holding the realm 27th Nythendra Mythic and 24th Elerathe Renferal Mythic kills.
Today we are actively working towards forming a raid team that would be able to attain our previous glory and compete on a realm wide level.
Elemental & Resto Shaman
*Applications from exceptional players will always be considered regardless of recruitment status*
Wednesday 20.30 - 23.00
Thursday 20.00 - 23.00
Sunday 20.00 - 23.00
Our ideal recruits are players who are passionate about the game and about progress. Each raider is expected to do whatever they can to improve their skills outside of the raiding environment and pull their own weight within the raid.
We are looking for mythic ready players who, without fail, know the tactics for every boss prior to entering the instance; have solid knowledge of their class and continuously strive to improve themselves; have a near 100% attendance rating; are prepared to wipe often on progression nights and can not only take the constructive criticism that comes their way but are also able to give constructive criticism back, as well as share new ideas and approaches relevant to the content we are clearing at the time.
CONTACT & INFO
If you have any questions or concerns you're welcome to contact me in game (Ririxia#2172) or on Discord (Ririxia#1469). You can find more info about our guild, guidelines, raiding policies, trials and the loot system, as well as apply on our website - http://we-tried.enjin.com
I'm creating this stand alone thread with my UI so it would be easier to maintain and update the strings here, rather than in two different guides (ElvUI & VuhDo) that already grew too big for easy updates.
My UI looks like this:
Disc Priest UI:
All the frames except of the raid ones are ElvUI, raid frames are Vuhdo.
The shaman hub in the middle is Sweetsour's Shaman Auras.
Pastebin / WAGO
All the VuhDo profiles were updated on 03/Feb/17.
If you want to see my spell and HoT assignments, you have to import Key Layouts as well.
VuhDo profile Resto Druid (Raid):
VuhDo profile Resto Druid (5-man):
VuhDo Resto Druid Key Layouts:
Raid / 5-man
VuhDo profile Resto Shaman (Raid):
VuhDo profile Resto Shaman (5-man):
VuhDo Resto Shaman Key Layouts:
Raid / 5-man
Cenarion Ward / Clearcasting proc / Efflorescence is missing / Lifebloom is missing / Artifact ability / Flourish / Ironbark / SotF buff is up / Swiftmend / Wild Growth
And this is a mana bar that is shown no matter in what form you are. I had a serious problem to track my mana when drinking or running in cat form because the mana bar transforms into the energy one. This aura fixed the issue.
This is a WeakAura that adds a Spectral Bear model while Frenzied Regeneration is up. I wrote a macro to switch into a bear form and use FR and added it to a Mouse Wheel Up in VuhDo.

ElvUI is a full UI replacement. It completely replaces the default Blizzard UI at every level with a new and better interface. It has multiple addons and plug-ins integrated into it, such as Dominos action bars and TidyPlates. As such, you’ll only ever have to update ElvUI and not worry too much about its individual components. This UI will arrange your interface to be more flexible and practical.
DOWNLOADING AND INSTALLATION
Download ElvUI from Tukui. The version on Curse is outdated.
Following the above link, you will find two addons to download: Tukui and ElvUI. You need ElvUI:
Unpack the downloaded archive to your WoW Addons folder (World of Warcraft -> Interface -> Addons)
If you had ElvUI previously installed, you'd get a message asking to replace the current folder - click 'Yes':
Log in to WoW. Click the 'AddOns' button in the left bottom corner of your character selection screen. Make sure that both ElvUI Config and ElvUI are enabled in the addons list:
Press 'Enter World'. ElvUI config can be reached from the Main Menu (in game press Esc button-> press ElvUI button) or by typing /ec in chat.
When entering the game for the first time after installing the addon, you'll get this screen :
If you can't see this Installation screen, type /ec in chat and then press 'Install' button in the config window:
You’ll now have a 8 step configuration process. Do not skip it if you don’t have ElvUI already configured on some other toon.
 Click on ‘Continue’ to begin:
 Step 2 of 8: CVars: Click on ‘Setup CVars’ → ‘Continue’
 Step 3 of 8: Chat: Click on ‘Setup Chat’ → ‘Continue’
 Step 4 of 8: Theme Setup: you can try all 3 buttons (Classic/Dark/Class) to see the difference and click ‘Continue’ after you decided.
 Step 5 of 8: Resolution: choose ‘High Resolution’ if you have a 15 inch + monitor, otherwise choose ‘Low Resolution’ → ‘Continue’
 Step 6 of 8: Layout: Choose the option you are interested in - a player / target / target of target Unit Frames will be at the bottom of the screen, not on the top and in a slightly different position for every role (You can click on every role to see the difference and to choose what you like better). If you chose a Healer role, you will get an announcement asking you to install the Clique addon, just click ‘Yes’ and ignore it, no need to install anything.
Click ‘Continue’ when you’re done.
 Step 7 of 8: Auras: I would advice for ‘Icons Only’ - we don’t need a million bars and timers for standard raid buffs. We all know that they are present. But you can select the ‘Aura Bars&Icons’ option too if it’s you taste. Click ‘Continue’ when you’re done.
 Step 8 of 8: Installation Complete: You’re done with the basic installation, hit the ‘Finished’ button and it will reload your UI.
After restarting, you’ll get a screen with a support announcement and tips. Check “Disable”, then press “Hide” if you don’t want these tooltips to come up. I suggest not to hide them until you’re completely familiar with ElvUI.
Now we’re going to configure your UI a bit more.
Typing /ec in chat will open the Config window.
There are some very nice options here that make your life easier:
- ‘Announce Interrupts’ dropdown menu. Set this to ‘None’ if you are using some other addon for it or set to any of the other options: Party/Raid/Say, etc.
- Select an ‘Auto Repair’ option from the drop down menu.
- Tick ‘Vendor Grays’ - awesome option!
- Tick “Auto Greed/DE’ to automate rolling on greens. It’ll automatically choose Disenchant or Greed (depending on whether an enchanter is available or not). This option works only on max level so don’t be afraid to DE something useful.
- You can disable the Order Hall Command Bar from here too.
- In the Objective Frame tab you can change its length.
Go through the rest of options and check whatever you feel useful.
Before Legion it was a dropdown menu that was changed recently to a stand alone config window:
While a 'World Map' tab is pretty obvious, you should configure properly the Minimap section:
- Pay close attention to the Minimap Buttons menu (Garrison / Calendar / Mail / LFR Queue, etc) - you can resize, move, hide / hide in combat all the buttons.
You should pay attention to the ‘Hide’ button. For some reason it is ticked by default so you’ll have to untick it for every button you want to see on your Minimap.
Same as Maps, it was a dropdown menu in General tab and was changed recently to a stand alone config window:
If you are still leveling or grinding Faction Reputations, you can configure here
- XP Bar & Reputation
You can choose here all the standard options - move, resize, vertical / horizontal, show on mouseover.
Tick 'Hide at Max level' for the XP bar - it's a nice option.
A very useful in Legion - it shows gained/needed for the next trait AP for your currently equipped Artifact and open the Traits window on mouse click.
Go through the rest of options and check whatever you feel useful.
- Tick ‘Enabled’
- Tick ‘Keybind Text’. Displays bind names on the action buttons.
- Tick ‘Macro Text’. Displays macro name on the action button so you'll be aware that pressing this button you'll run a macro and not a single ability.
- Change ‘Font’ and ‘Font Size’ to whatever works for you.
‘Pick Up Action Key’ is the button that you must hold down in order to drag an ability to another action button - prevents from accidental messing with the buttons.
Now check “Enabled” for Micro Bar (this is the one with Quests, LFR, Char Info, Spellbook, etc icons), any of the Bars 1-6, Pet Bar and Stance Bar. Actually, you can enable only Bar 1 and 2 or whatever works for you and disable all the rest.
For every bar, there is a ‘Mouse over’ tick box - this will simply hide the bar until you mouseover it, which is useful for bars that are irrelevant during raids.
In enabled Bars, you can choose the number of buttons per bar and vertical or horizontal style.
- The ‘Buttons’ slider will allow you to set how many buttons a bar will have (the button cap is 12 though, you cannot have more than that in a single bar).
- ‘Buttons Per Row’ - choose 12 if you want a horizontal bar, choose 1, if you want it vertical bar.
Actually you don’t have to have exactly 12 buttons per bar. It can be any amount from 1 to 12 or even 2 rows of 6 buttons or any other configuration that you prefer.
If you want to hide an Action Bar in a specific situation, for example during a raid, you have to type
[vehicleui] hide; [overridebar] hide; [petbattle] hide; [nocombat] hide; show;
in the 'Visibility State' window.
Now we will sort the bars on the screen. Click ‘Toggle Anchors:’
You will then get this screen:
Just mouse drag your bars to the proper position.
If you feel that your bars are stick to something all the time, just untick ‘Sticky Frames’ option in the central Menu.
In addition, you get a 'Nudge' menu with arrows and numbers on every bar you are clicking - you can use it for fine tuning (if you are interested in extremely precise positioning ^^)
When you’re done, click on ‘Lock’ in the central Menu.
To configure Hot Keys on your Action Bars, click on ‘Keybind Mode.’
You will get this window pop-up:
Tick Character specific Key Bindings only if you want different positioning of hotkeys on the bars for different characters. You’ll get an explanation of what to do on the screen. Do not forget to click ‘Save’ when you’re done.
Click ‘Enable,’ if you want to use ElvUI’s bag system. It’s nice, tidy and flexible in size and positioning. If you have an external bag addon, you will have to disable ElvUI’s bag system or you’ll get both of them messed up.
I personally preferred to disable ElvUI bag system and use AdiBags addon. It’s the same graphic style but has very good smart section division by default including different gear sets - no need to configure anything. In addition you can have all the Currencies you want to track at the bottom line.
Looks like this:
BUFFS AND DEBUFFS
Both ‘Enable’ and ‘Disabled Blizzard’ must be checked.
You can play here with the options or leave it untouched, move and resize chat windows, remove / split existing or add new, add timestamps, enable chat history, etc.
Let’s try to add a new chat window, so you’ll know how to do this.
 Right click on the ‘General’ tab of your Chat window and select ‘Create New Window’ from the menu.
 Name this window ‘Raid.’
 Right-click on the newly created ‘Raid’ chat window and select ‘Settings.’
 From the ‘Chat’ category, untick everything except ‘Party, Party Leader, Raid, Raid Leader, Raid Warning, Instance, Instance Leader.’
 From the ‘Global Channels’ category, untick everything.
 Click ‘Okay.’
Remember that you can move chat windows - you will have to untick ‘Lock Positions’ option to do this.
Datatexts are all the additional data that could be displayed at the bottom of chat windows, Action Bars and Minimap.
You can also interact with the datatexts. For example, clicking on Time will bring up Calendar, on Durability - your Character Info, on Spec - will change it to the secondary, mouseover on System - shows your addon list with the memory used, etc.
There is a nice tab 'Currencies' where you may configure which currencies and in what format you want to see in Datatexts.
Frankly, there are a million possibilities to try :)
If you are using external addon for the Nameplates, you’ll have to untick “Enable” here.
Check “Enable” in tabs you want Nameplates on (I personally check only Enemy NPC but it's completely your choice):
There are a lot of options to track and to choose from but they are all very user friendly so I wouldn't explain them one by one.
Pay Attention that the Elite Icon was finally added to ElvUI so you don't need to write custom texts to track Rare and Elite mobs anymore.
SKINS / TOOLTIPS / FILTERS
Doesn’t matter. Do whatever you want here.
Enable only the UNIT FRAMES tabs that are relevant for you. All the rest - keep them disabled.
You should disable all the Blizzard frames - keeping both Blizz and ElvUI frames creates unnecessary mess on your screen.
For example as a raid healer I disable all the party/raid frames because I’m using VuhDo for it.
You can use Clique and mouseover macros with ElvUI Unit Frames.
ElvUI Raid Frames are very flexible: you can move and resize them, choose vertical or horizontal positioning. Any target data, buffs and debuffs could be configured separately for every kind of group. You can add and remove targets of your target, focus or pet, their cast bars, name, HP, level, raid icons, etc.
If you are interested in tracking incoming heals or threat, there are options for this too.
The most awesome thing about ElvUI is that after you did it once, no need to configure the addon for every character. Just choose the toon or a named profile that you want to copy the settings from. If you have a viable offspec, you can also ‘Enable Dual Profile’ to configure it.
Or you can just save different profiles for 10-man / 25-man raid or for tank / dps spec.
Another nice option is to share your profile with other player (obviously they should have ElvUI too) when targeting them.
I'm sharing my profile here for those who prefer not to start from scratch.
Use 'Import Profile' button to import :)
