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.

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 ??

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?

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.
