WeakAuras Strings

 

The Block on the left of the combo points in this picture is an addon called Bandit's Guile Helper. I have it sized and placed so it balances out with my Blade Flurry Weakaura.

You and I have a pretty similar set of addons, switch ElvUI for Pitbull, WA for TellMeWhen and it nearly becomes my list! The extra two I use are IceHUD for an easier combat view of health and cast bars, and ComboPointsRedux. Mine will be changing drastically to a PvP UI once I hit lvl 100, but the principles of spacing and centering remain the same.

 

Nice post!

For PvP I really try not to use any addons - when I used to do it a couple expansions ago, the rules for Blizzard tournaments were that no addons were allowed. I think that's still the case, but if I ever made it to Blizzcon then I wanted  to be able to play by tournament rules. The only thing you can do is move frames around

 

That being said though, Gladius is a life saver these days :P

Mind to show a SS of your Sub setup? I'm curious about it.

 

And how do you use only ElvUI unitframes? You isolate the LUA files in the whole pack or there's a separate pack for it? I have been using UnitFramesImproved, but it is not aesthetic at all and bugs from time to time...

I'll do one after this weekend Confidor, I'm out of town until Sunday night. I'll update the original post with the Combat WeakAuras and SS for it and Sub when I finish them, but it probably won't be until Monday or Tuesday.

 

For ElvUI I literally just open the menu (/ec) and go through the list unchecking every single part of it. It all has a box labeled "Enabled"; uncheck it and you're golden. There's a bunch of stuff in the general thing as well, such as Minimap and loot rolls that I get rid of as well. Just takes some searching to find it all.

I've put those auras in my game, but strangely it's lagging on updating my UI. Perhaps it's my connection, but I'll see.

Nice UI. I prefer Gwenymph´s (which i saw from the streams) would also be nice if he would share his secret of his UI :)

Do you have a screenshot? I might be able to give some insight to it or try and replicate it for you

Thanks for the amazing guide. But how i use the pastebin?

 

The Pastebin documents are strings that you import into Weakauras. Open WeakAuras in game by typing /wa, click New on the left side, then at the bottom there will be an option for Import. Copy all of the text in one of the Pastebin strings and paste it into the Import box, and hit ok a few times. You should see it come up and load for you, where you can play with the positioning and all that kind of stuff

Edit: I got my WA working! Screenshot below

on the left is my ClassTimers setup and it'll track the duration of buffs (you can set classtimer to track the debuffs on your target too... useful for bleeds). 

 

to the left of classtimer you can see my dps cooldowns... these only show when OFF cooldown so that if I'm slow on popping one, I can see it's ready. SnD and RS will also show here incase I forget to refresh right away. 

 

just need to work on something more visible for anticipation and bandit's guile than classtimer. not sure how I'll do that yet. I'd like 4 stacks of anticipation and my red insight to be a bit more visible. it would be nice if I could change the color of the bar on classtimer to be red for that event.

Simplecombopoints for cps and anticipation.

Banditsguilehelper.

I can recommend Needtoknow instead of classtimer as its more flexible yet simple to use

I have weakauras for all those as well, they should be at the bottom of the main post so you can take them and change them as you like.

I've made some small changes to them recently, and I'm planning on updating the post when I get home in a couple days

Thanks for pointing out those strings. After putting those in, I'm really damn happy w/ my UI. Usually I always look at the default CP from SUF - I really like the change. No need for me to switch from classtimers -> needtoknow. Not sure what it is, but I've never liked needtoknow.

edit: carrn- i've noticed w/ the combo points string that when I have anticipation stacks, sometimes the red bars won't all populate, but all the purple anticipation will. does this reproduce for you?

Classtimers give you no customability. Ntk does. Ie. you cant choose the order of your cooldowns with classtimer. Anyhow I wont force anything on you :)

      Hi,
      I need some help figuring out my rogues weak auras.
      I currently have this: https://gyazo.com/e9f6967a7c2e56fdb4a88f9c554ebd22
      What I want to happen is that when there are 3 seconds remaining on for ex rupture, the icon of rupture glows and once rupture is gone the icon just stays there glowing.
      Secondly, could someone give me the ID for the envenom buff as I cannot seem to track it whatever I do. Hopefully in the same format as the others in the picture above.
      Can anyone help me with this by guiding me on how to do it or giving me the string on the new one?
      Thanks in advance.

      So im new to Demo Warlock and the weak aura stuff 

      so im tried it for 1 level so far and i enjoyed it - [ i mean from 100 to 101 xD ]

      and if you guys have good Weakauras import for buffs on pets like [Demonic Empowerment] that shows if its running out and something like [Doom] on enemies, and all of the similar things
       
      and some tips should be cool

      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:
