UI Again

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 12:38 pm

My ui is getting better, angina still not good enough, rehabilitation and occasionally I bring in an addon that does annoying things (something turned off my combat logs last night!) So here’s how it is at the moment(click for a fullsize version):


I took this at a quiet time facing the wall, so there’s some addon’s missing, most significantly the BigWigs notifications and the Quartsz cast bar(s) and the cooldown timers.

I’m sure you’re wondering why on earth is there all that stuff in the middle-left? It’s there because it’s in the middlesaving large eye movements (and the associated attention blink). I can keep half an eye on Flowersz while still looking at the health bars.

It’s still quite messy. I still need to

  • Remove the party frames from the left hand side
  • Split the debuff bar from Elkano’s Buff Bars and put high center. Counting debuffs seems pretty damn important!
  • Figure out how to get the Blizz buff/debuff icons (top right) to only show the Debuffs (so important I want them twice!)
  • I’d love a fu-bar like addon that dropped a list of buffs on mouseover, I only rarely need to see my buffs in combat,and I can do black and whitelists with ElkBuffBars to keep the list small.
  • Think about moving the chat frame to the left instead of the right, just for aesthetic reasons.

I’ll be posting something about last nights raid (part2) later, in the meantime you can see Smyths comments which are not quite what I would have said, but I don’t disagree with him either.
