I’m a chronic UI fiddler. Here’s the current state of the UI
Starting at the top. On the left I have the regular player/target unitframes from Blizzard. I’m thinking of turning them off now that I have Quartz installed still noodling on the idea.
Fubar: Across the top you see FuBar. I used to use Titan but updated to FuBar since it seems to be under more active development. From left to right you see:
MoneyFu, DurabilityFu, topScoreFu, ToFu (flight timer)
AlarmClockFu, RecountFu, LocationFu, TCGTradeSkillsFu (mouseover shows my tradeskill levels for all of my toons and clicking on the icons triggers -that- tradeskill for this toon).
On my non-70 toons I also have experienceFu in the top bar.
On my warlocks I have eeShards for shard management.
I also have a bottom bar.. but it only shows up on mouseover. On that I have AddonSpamfu, BagFu, and performancefu
CTBuff: On the right-hand side of the top you see all my buffs and debuffs. This is currently using CT-BUFF. I’m thinking about changing to ElkBuffs though since CT is such a resource hog (and after 2.3 I think CTBuff is the only CT mod I’ll still be using).
AuraMap: The circles in the minimap show my range and my auras. This is using the addon AuraMap. The red circle is at 30′ (aura/cleanse range) and the yellow circle is at 40′ (heal range).
DepositBox: The padlock icon on the minimap is for DepositBox. I’ve written that addon up before: DepositBox. It hides my money from me.. and prevents me from spending it. All good things.
Omen: Back on the left-hand side I have Omen, my threat meter. It’s in beta but has gotten more stable recently. I still find that once or twice an instance run I have to reload my UI to get me to show up in omen. It’s getting better though.
MetaHud and Mik’s Scrolling Battle Text: The center of the screen, around my toon is my Hud. I use meta hud for the bars and targeting info.. and Mik’s Scrolling Battle Text to show and label the incoming and outgoing hits/heals. Hmm.. this screenshot doesn’t show anything incoming/outgoing. I think I was mistargeted. Look at the incoming/outgoing here. This part of the UI hasn’t changed in a long time.
PallyPower: On the far right is PallyPower. This tremendously eases blessing management.
Prat: On the far left is Prat. It prettifies the chat box. I’m not entirely sold on it. It has some nice features.. but no real “Oh God, I can’t live without it”. The timestamp is nice.. the color coding of /trade chat with the chatters class/level is nice.. but other than that.. it’s kinda “Meh”.
Bartender3, Dr. Damage and OmniCC: Below Prat is my button bar. I’m using Bartender3 to manage my buttons. Shown is my main “I’m fighting” buttons. If I hold down CTRL this button bar completely updates to a new set of 20 buttons. Those are my Blessings. If I hold down ALT the button bar completely updates again to a totally new set of 20 buttons. ALT is my “need buttons for it but do’t need to see it all the time” buttons. Things like my enchant/disenchant buttons… bandages, etc.
Also sprinkled around the screen is 4 more button bars that only show when you mouse over them. On the top, by the minimap is the bar that holds all my auras. The bar only shows when I wave my mouse over it.
The yellow numbers on the bottom center of the buttons are from Dr. Damage. I think it’s showing the average damage from that attack.
The big red number is the cooldown on that ability. That’s coming from OmniCC.
Dotimer: To the right of the button bar is the CoolDown timers from Dotimer. Dotimer also is responsible for the .. dot timer that is just to the right of Grid. This is useful on my Paladin.. and indispensible on my warlock. I’ve turned off the “Communication” module of Dotimer to keep it’s spammy-ness from messing with Omen.
Quartz: This screenshot doesn’t really show much of quartz. The dot timer is showing but that’s it. Indispensible addon though.
Grid and Clique: At the bottom center of the screen is Grid. I’ve installed Grid, GridAlert, GridSideIndicators, GridStatusAFK, and GridStatusPvP. Hrm.. despite the fact that we’re in the middle of the raid the Grid information shown isn’t all that interesting. Currently it’s showing that Amellea has aggro.. but not much else.
I use Clique combined with Grid to heal. See article here.
