AltzUI for Legion

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.

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?

      Blizzard buffed Chain Heal and redesigned High Tide in this week's 8.1 Build 28151.
      UPDATE
      Blizzard (Source)
      Quick update: the buff will have a longer duration in the next build. It is intended to be less of a "press button when it lights up" proc, and more something you can plan to use. This also should take stress off of knowing exactly when it will trigger (which is not something we want the talent to be about micromanaging). Chain Heal
      Received a healing increase, baking in most of the value of the previous High Tide that has been redesigned. High Tide
      OLD: Chain Heal bounces to 1 additional target, and its falloff with each bounce is reduced by half. NEW: Every 150 mana you spend brings a High Tide, making your next 2 Chain Heals heal for an additional 20% and not reduce with each jump. Check out our Tides of Vengeance hub for the latest Patch 8.1 information!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Just to avoid any confusion that may be occurring due to tooltips on PTR: Chain Heal's base functionality is unchanged, other than receiving a large healing increase (roughly speaking, baking in most of the value of the previous High Tide). High Tide is redesigned, but is still a passive--the mana cost in the tooltip header is an error. Brief context: as a passive buff to every Chain Heal, High Tide was putting it in an awkward position where the base skill wasn't very prominent in the toolkit if you used other talents. The goal here is to both put Chain Heal back on the map while using Ascendance or Wellspring in any type of content, and also provide a talent option which allows for strong moments centered around very large Chain Heals.
      Usual PTR disclaimers: still under iteration, open to feedback, not necessarily tuned.

      Naowh recently cleared Freehold +11 and Atal'Dazar +12 in time with a group of five Blood Death Knights.
      Both keystone runs have been completed with the following affixes active:
      Fortified Bolstering Skittish Infested Freehold Clear (Mythic +11)
      The group completed the run with 5 minutes and 14 seconds remaining (30:46 / 36:00).
      Atal'Dazar Clear (Mythic +12)
      The clear was completed in 29 minutes and 17 seconds.

      This year's Hallow's End comes with a new toy Headless Horseman's Hearthstone that can be purchased with Tricky Treats. The Headless Horseman should drop ilvl 335 gear.
      The meta-achievement Hallowed Be Thy Name is required for What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been and the Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake mount. You can find more details about the event in our Hallow's End guide.
      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
      Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
      Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
      The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
      When: October 18–November 1
      Where: Trick-or-Treat throughout the inns of Azeroth, Northrend, Pandaria, Outland, Draenor, and the Broken Isles (Dalaran) for tasty treats and currency to buy Hallow’s End delights.
      All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
      Prepare yourselves, the bells have tolled! Shelter your weak, your young and your old! Each of you shall pay the final sum. Cry for mercy, the reckoning has come!
      THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 23-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added toy:
      Headless Horseman's Hearthstone Head to Val’sharah to undertake a quest that begins with the Hag of the Crooked Tree in Bradensbrook. Follow the tale through to its culmination and you’ll receive some Tricky Treats and a chance of receiving one of four utterly bewitching hats.
      Hat of the First Sister Hat of the Second Sister Hat of the Third Sister Hat of the Youngest Sister ACHIEVEMENTS
      There are a total of 21 achievements that can be earned during this event. Completing the Meta-Achievement, Hallowed Be Thy Name, rewards the title: The Hallowed. The eleven Achievements that need to be completed to earn this title include: Trick or Treat!, Out With It, Bring Me the Head of... Oh Wait, The Savior of Hallow's End, That Sparkling Smile, Rotten Hallow, G.N.E.R.D. Rage, Check Your Head, The Masquerade, Sinister Calling, Tricks or Treats of Azeroth.
