Considering a new UI (ElvUI)

4 posts in this topic

I've been searching for info on ElvUi recently. There is lots of set up videos and indepth info on specific stuff but i'm looking for general info.

Is this something you can try on only one toon for testing . Will All my favourite addons work. Can you turn it off if you don't like it ? stuff like that. Anyone with some experiance with it, either good or bad ?

1. Yeah, just uncheck it from the addon list for all of the characters but the one you want to test it on. Added bonus, if you find you like it on that one character Elv has the option to copy those setting to your other characters.

2. It plays nice with all my favorite addons though it did replace some of them.

3. If you don't like it you can always erase it and it shouldn't impact your old UI.

To add on to whatever Sawzorthn said, in case some Elvui setting has a conflict with any of your existing add-ons, I have seen it warn you about it and give an option for choosing either one of them. I ran into that issue when I started using Tidy Plates and it had a conflict with Elvui's nameplates. With recent updates to Elvui, I have gone back to only using that even for gauging threat.

Thank you , that's the sort of info. i'm looking for. I've gotten used to my addons that do what I need and show me what i want to see. I just want to organize them better so i only see what i need when i need it.  I love my POSTAL, My ALTOHOLIC, Recount, and my Overachiever. Although its got it's quirks in places i still like my Carbonite. And rely on my titan panel to keep things right in front of me.

 

Any tips are welcome.

      Hello all.  I usually update my Elvui using the Tukui client.  But for some reason today their webpages are giving me a "page not found" error message.
      Is anyone here using Elvui and if so, are you able to find their webpages?

      Hello,
      I just wanted to share something that can greatly benefits resto druids. Maybe I'm just stating the obvious or the already well known but Vuhdo has a great feature that completely changed my resto gameplay. It's the hot minibars.

      I play most of the time with germination, meaning I have 3 main hots to monitor: 2 rejuv (2 blue minibars), and 1 lifebloom (purple minibar). Efflorescence has already a visual effect making it easy to track and wild growth is not a hot you want to maintain.
      This make tracking hots on your party/raid a piece of cake. You know exactly which hot is about to expire and you can anticipate refreshs, especially in those hard hitting mythic10+, making sure your tank is never running out of hots.
      Here's the minibars in action:
      Here's the vuhdo profile, but you may simply play with the hot bar options and colors:

      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.
      ElvUI profile:
      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):
      WAGO
      VuhDo profile Resto Druid (5-man):
      WAGO
      VuhDo Resto Druid Key Layouts:
      Raid / 5-man
       
      VuhDo profile Resto Shaman (Raid):
      WAGO
      VuhDo profile Resto Shaman (5-man):
      WAGO
      VuhDo Resto Shaman Key Layouts:
      Raid / 5-man
       
      WeakAuras:
      Druid:
      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.
      Macro:
      #showtooltip Frenzied Regeneration
      /castsequence [@player] reset=16 Bear Form, Frenzied Regeneration
       
      General:
      T19 raid awareness (I didn't write this set)
      Heroism (all kinds)
      Raid Healing CDs bar

      Hello all,
      I'm trying too improve my playing and are reading through your site. Now I found this part
       
      I'm using an old Razer Naga and configured it vastly different, but I don't know, if I have all the features ElvUI would give me. As it would take me a looong time finding this out, I  would like to ask if somebody can advise me what to do. I suppose, that I have to replace the addon which comes with Razer Naga.

      Good morning Icy Veins,
      I've been watching some videos to improve my UI from a resto druid perspective. I found this video from Method vs Xavius from the POV of their holy paladin. This video shows a lot of different addons, but i'm mainly curious about the addon which is used for the raid frames and on click healing.
      My assuption this is Vudho or Healbot in combination with Elvui?, but i would like to have your feedback. This friday i'll be starting to set up my UI so any help you guys can provide me would be perfect.
      My main goal is to have a almost standard single player UI, but a more slick and healer friendly UI for mythic + and Raiding.
      Thank you :)
      PS. If you have any video's/screens of your own UI (resto druid prefered)  i'm happy to copy it over ;)
