AltzUI for Legion

Recommended Posts

1D0fCJ1.jpg

AltzUI is a minimalistic user interface for Legion and a great alternative to ElvUI.

Many people keep asking what UI I'm using in our videos, that's why I'd like to provide more information on AltzUI. The goal is to hide most of the UI providing a minimalistic look, similar to the one you get by pressing Alt+Z in Wow. It's easily customizable with in-game configuration settings. The UI is updated frequently and even has a GitHub repository.

Players have been mostly asking two questions.

What addon adds textures to the target nameplate?

Target Nameplate Indicator.

What unit frames are you using?

EKPlates.

Both addons are part of AltzUI, but can be downloaded and used separately.

AltzUI Screenshots

AltzUI Video

The UI appears in all our newest videos, where I'm not using Alt+Z to hide the entire user interface. A little ironic, but it's AltZ either way!

Download

You can download AltzUI here. Unzip the archive and place the Buttons folder inside your WoW root folder and the rest of the addons into Interface/Addons.

Interesting. I'll have to give it a try at some point on one of my alts.  I use ZPerl (and XPerl before that) for many years, but the develop side of it has not been stable for just as long.  (That's not a dig at the maintainers, I appreciate what they do!)

Oh, is there a standalone version of the numeric health nameplate? I kinda like that :O

Yes, EKPlates.

I want to use this. I've been looking for a neat looking minimal UI for a long time. I've stuck with the default Blizzard UI because most addons just look messy and take up too much of the screen.

I have a question though, can you use this addon along with other addons that affect the UI? I haven't used one of these UIs before.

Sure you can. UI Elements can be easily configured and disabled at will and replaced with other addons.

What font is that in your video? It's very clean! It looks like Comfortaa, but every time I use that font it's very thin looking.

does it have a "default layout " like elvui does or do i have to set it up ( sorry im lazy ) only reason i used elvui not much set up to do 

I ended up downloading it myself to check it out. It comes with a default layout and a config to customize like ElvUI if you wish. It's all built into the addon so it's not a compilation you set-up.

Looks really pretty :) Is there a way it can be updated via Curse Client? I've been using ElvUI that has its own app, but it sadly doesn't run on mac :(

Hi !

 

Looks quite great !

 

Still, I have a problem, I guess with EKPlates, as if it was staying in "setup" mode (see below).

I have 92% health on every mob, and all of them are named "name" ;)

 

Though, when I start to fight, the the real health and real name display (but over the default text).

 

What did I forget ?

Thanks a lot !

Short answer: No.  I tried locating the add-on on Curse's web site and via their client with zero search results.  I downloaded and installed the add-on per the instructions on its WoWInterface article, and then have Curse Client scan for new/changed add-ons.  It didn't appear using that method, either.

It's a bit annoying, for sure. I always like being able to just click "update all" and move on with things. Ah well!

@genki @Sawzorthn Are you still not able to update it via Curse? It has been uploaded there. Weird error. I wasn't able to replicate it, everything functions properly on my end. I enabled false values in config.lua to "true". When out of combat, I don't see mob health, just name and level.

It turns out I'm just an idiot, once I turned off the Elv plates everything looked fine.

I guess I am even dumber than you :D

What do you call Elv plates ??

 

Thanks a lot !

If you use Elv UI there's a whole section marked nameplates. Unchecking that and reloading UI fixed everything for me.

I really like this addon but I need a little help with couple things: In mythic+  after the adds die I have some fps dropps for like 1-2 seconds and I tried to find a solution for this but still dont know what to do. Below my character it show my hp and mana is there a way to move it or turn it off for some specs? (for example i play feral as well and have some weak auras to show my combo points and its annoying to see an other combo point bar thing under my druid), and also would like to know how can i share this with my other characters on my account?

      This is one of those "obviously not what we hope it is, but maaaybe?" things as Henry Cavill, who was part of many discussions about who should play Arthas last year, just posted an interesting image to his Instagram, as spotted by Warchief_Hammerhands.
      This is 99.99% Witcher-related, and the caption is just a tease (whether it's actually aimed at the Arthas hype or not), but we have seen the actor actually talk about the role of the Lich King previously. In several Instagram replies to one of the many fan photoshops of himself as Arthas, Cavill did seem to show some solid interest in the role, and it all started with an emoji response to this post:
      And here's the complex response, with Blizzard getting tagged:

      He then engaged in some fan interaction, starting with a nod at the previous rumors of him being the next Bond:
           
      And great response to a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
       
        

      Many have actually commented that Cavill might be a bit too old for Arthas at this point, but considering the events on 9.1 and where the story might be going, who's to say an older, post-Maw Arthas isn't in the cards? It seems like a perfect stunt commercial type thing to tease a potentially bigger project like a TV series or even movie. After all, Metzen himself approves of Cavill in the role!
      But, getting back down to earth, this seems much more Witcher-related, with Season 2 of the show  still being shot, as Covid slowed things down. The Instagram post is probably just a tease that they're still shooting the show (possibly the finale, as the script seems to be relevant) and we're just getting too excited. But why shouldn't we get excited? A Warcaft TV show is just too good of a fit, even an animated one, so any movement we can stir up there can only be positive!

      We're sure you're all Cavilled-out at this point, but there's another development in the fan/Chris Metzen/Christie Golden casting of Superman as Arthas, as the man (of steel) himself has replied to a recent photoshop of him as the Lich King over on Instagram. We start off with two cute/amazing fan interactions, as someone in the thread asked him what his WoW name was and the reply was pure gold:
           
      The second was a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
        
      And finally there's the big one, even thought it's small, as Cavill tagged Blizzard with a thinking emoji:

      And while usually with social media posts like this you'd assume they were made by some PR intern or similar, considering Cavill's love of WoW and the specificity of some of the replies, we can be pretty sure he was the one responding. Here's the full Instagram post:
      And just in case you missed it the first time, here's that story of Cavill missing the call that he got the Superman part:

      The Great Vault raid loot requirements have finally changed on the 9.0.5 PTR in this week's Build 37705.
      As we reported last week, Blizzard planned on changing the raid loot requirements for the weekly chest from 3/7/10 bosses down to 3/6/9 bosses, but Blizzard did not implement the change until this week's Build arrived on the 9.0.5 PTR.
      Here's the updated Great Vault tab with the new requirements.

    • By Stan
      We've got some great news for you if you don't do Mythic Keystone Dungeons. In Patch 9.0.5, you can upgrade base Mythic Dungeon gear with Valor Points up to Item Level 200.
      In this week's (third) 9.0.5 PTR build, we noticed Mythic gear has 12 ranks in the Dungeon Journal, which means it is upgradable with Valor from Item Level 183 to 200.
