Introducing ShadowlandsUI By Hodag

Recommended Posts

Hodag has created a Shadowlands-inspired User Interface that you can download on WoW Interface, and in this post, we are looking at it in more detail.

ShadowlandsUI comes with custom target frame, health/player frames, masque skin, background button art, status bars, border, map, fonts, nameplates, cast bar, and more.

You can see for yourself how the UI looks like in action (party/raid layouts included).

Quick Demo

Included Addons

  • Pitbull Unit Frames to configure unit frames, cast bar, xp/rep bar, and XP bar.
  • Weak Auras to provide custom art for the unit frames, cast bars, XP/rep bar, and “button holder” art.
  • Plater to overhaul the look of the nameplates and use the custom assets included in the UI.
  • Glass to update the look of the chatbox and enable the custom font.
  • SexyMap to update the look of the map and keep it consistent with the Shadowlands theme.
  • Masque + Masque: Shadowlands skin to skin the buttons for your action bars.
  • Bartender4 to manage your bars.
  • Slightly tweaked Details! to align with custom fonts/statusbars used in the interface.
  • BetterDamage to change the damage/healing font to align with the font used in the interface.
  • MoveAnything to move a few default blizzard UI elements around to accommodate for the UI layout.
  • SharedMedia to house some of the custom assets.
  • Slightly tweaked OmniCC to work nicely with the Masque skin.
  • Bagnon to declutter the bag icons and well its an essential addon regardless.
  • Reflux is used to help profile switching of the UI between characters and specs.
  • NibProfileLoader is used to automate profile switching upon load.

Installation Guide

  1. Backup your current Interface and WTF folders by renaming them Interface_backup and WTF_backup. These are located in your WoW directory (e.g. C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/_retail_/)
  2. Extract the ShadowlandsUI Interface and WTF folders to your /_retail_/ directory
  3. In the newly extracted WTF folder, rename the following folders to match the names in your WTF_backup folder:
    ACCOUNTNAME (usually a # or account name if your account is older)
    REALM NAME (name of the realm your character resides)
    CHARACTER NAME (name of the character you wish to inherit ShadowlandsUI – you only need to list one. Read the FAQ if you want to use it on multiple characters)
  4. Launch WoW, choose the character you renamed the folder to and ensure all addons are selected and “Load out of date addons” is checked.
  5. Launch the game and click “Yes” when it asks if you wish to load ShadowlandsUI at the top of the screen. The interface will reload and you will be looking at the ShadowlandsUI.
  6. Ensure all nameplates are turned to “on” by hitting Ctrl+V.
  7. Right click the map and click on the button towards the bottom that says “Use global profile”
  8. *(if required) As we are in pre-patch land, a lot of addons are still under development and some settings get wonky. If you notice any LUA errors after install, reload the UI. If you notice a semi-transparent black square in the middle of your screen or on the top left of your health bar, type /pitbull and navigate to layout editor → Shadowlands Player → Indicators → Totems and uncheck enable. Do this same thing for the layout “Shadowlands Cast.”

    ShadowlandsUI is now installed and configured properly. Make sure to keep all addons updated as you normally would – especially if you get weird errors as you install the UI, as you probably need to update the addons that were included in the package. If you want to copy your macros and hotkeys from your backup folder, check the FAQ.

Head over to WoW Interface for FAQ and to download the UI!

So when I use my normal WTF and Interface folders, i can see my addons, but as soon as I copy the UI folders in, and change the other ones to _backup, I dont see any addons anymore. I have changed the filenamesin the WTF folder to match the _backup, but still nothing. Anyone know of this, and has a solution?

Looks amazing in game as well, it gives the feeling of a fresh new game and while it works with most classes almost perfect, there are small issues with spell bars and balance druid spec. Where bar one shifts into Moonkin spell bar, with this UI it doesn't, note here that the bar 1 do changes for cat form and bear form.

An other issue for me is with the key binds and spell bars. I use no more than 30 binds and most of my action bars were full with spells, some macros, pots and prof icons, mounts as well (mostly mounts were unbound). I had utilised 99% of the spell space given. What happened after I installed this UI : Bar 1 shows my key binds as before but with the issue mentioned on my Moonkin, were it was left top bar (horizontal one) have disappeared and the spell icons along with them. Pressing the binds I had on those bars make the spells happen still, but no visual. I tried to find how to customise all of this and so far 0 luck. This is because, (if my understanding is correct) its a blend of many overlapping add-ons, and for me what's missing is a universal control panel. This UI feels incomplete. I look forward to a more complete version.

Moving from BenikUI (elvui edit) to try this, installation was quick and easy, also for multiple characters. Only thing I had to do over was my keybinds and skills on action bars because in my previous UI I was using different bars than what bartender uses so even swapping over savedvariables, it wouldn't have worked.

Only things I'm not too keen on atm is that I feel the nameplates could be cleaner and maybe a bit scaled up and show health numbers or % out of the box. The other thing being is that the buffs are too far tucked away and I think they need to be brough out a bit more and maybe add timers to them.

Would be nice to also have this come packaged with a scrolling combat text rather than the in-game one, something a bit clearer.
And have you thought about possibly replacing some blizz interface textures with your own custom ones? I guess it depends if uses a lot more resources ? im guessing this pack is intended to be lightweight.

Overall this is super awesome and looks really sleek and refreshing to see someone do something that's not elvui or tukui ? Thanks for making this ?

      It appears that the Weekly Maximum Valor cap has been removed on the 9.0.5 PTR. The patch releases this week on March 9.
      Previously, players could only earn 750 Valor each week, as shown in the screenshot below.

      On Thursday, Blizzard announced in a blue post that they were increasing Valor caps on the 9.0.5 PTR. Most importantly, they also added that there would be a cap of 1,500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time, which seems to have been scrapped in the end.
      Currently, on the PTR, it looks like Blizzard has entirely removed the Weekly Valor cap in a hotfix (see missing tooltip). The Total Maximum cap has been increased to 8,750 Valor.

      We're still waiting for Blizzard to confirm if the Weekly Cap has been indeed scrapped or if it's just a bug.

      ChromedDragon created a map of Draenor before Garrosh showed up. Check it out!
      On the map, we see how the individual Orc clans completely surrounded the Draenei from almost all directions.

      Tanks are getting a lot of focus in Shadowlands with the increased Mythic+ focus, and it's only going to get more intense with the next pach, so we rounded up some funny stories, depressing interactions, memes and similar. Here's a grab-bag of tanking experiences from many players.
      While all tanks are always needed, things change around the +15 mark, as it's not just DPS that have this particular experience, and if you're one of the least popular/worst specs...
      Then there's this type of terrible, which hasn't really changed that much since, well, forever, as there will always be assholes out there, but there really do seem to be more and more of them these days, especially in Mythic+...

      Source: ChoGallMeta.
      And even if you do well, it's never enough for some people:
      But, sometimes it's quite a different feeling, as however terrible players might be to you, you're still a tank damn it!
      And there are some perfect moments that can only come from tanking, including this one titled "My greatest M+ tanking Achievement...":

      If the group gets really annoying, you can always have the last word too:

      And finally, if you get REALLY tired of all the DPS not interrupting, the healer selfishly trying to keep those idiots that stand in every mechanic under the sun alive instead of keeping you above 80%, or people dare to question your route, you can always just go with your own kind!

      Darkmoon Faire has returned for a week. Make sure to use the 10% reputation & experience buff, and don't forget about Profession skill-up quests for easy 5 points!
      10% WHEE! Buff
      The buff increases Experience and Reputation gains by 10% for 1 hour, and it is recommended to turn in weekly quests only after you have the buff for extra reputation. You can farm reputation beyond Exalted for Reputation Paragon rewards.
      Profession Quests
      If you're missing some crucial skill points to max out your Professions, do not forget that the Darkmoon Faire Profession quests can grant you 5 skill points! You no longer need to have 75 skill points for the quests either, so head over to Darkmoon Island to get them.
      Inky Black Potions
      Don't forget to stock up on Inky Black Potion to enjoy dark mode in Shadowlands and other regions! Here's a showcase of Bastion with the potion. Image courtesy of Reddit user nasKo_zomboid.
