    Help my UI

    Hey guys!

    I am trying to get a new UI set up, but I am missing a few key parts:
    - A nameplate addon with dot tracking, preferably accurate ones.
    - Player and Target frames
    - Buff frames, displaying trinket procs etc. Preferably in bars and not icons.
    - Cast bar with ticks (for MG and DS)

    I know this isn't quite the right forum, but these are very class specific and I'd much prefer getting the help of an experienced warlock, over the help of a rend spreading warrior, if you know what I mean. I hope you won't mind.

    Thanks in advance.

    The ones I use which work:
    - player and target frames: shadowed unit frames
    - buff frames, etc.: raven (can either chose icons or bars)
    - cast bar with ticks: quartz

    a nameplate addon I use is tidyplates, but I haven't looked too far into it as I also use fortexorcist so I don't really know everything you can do with it.

    Thanks alot. I used to love ForteXorcist, but I don't remember it being all that great on multidotting. Did I miss something or did something change?

    Well, I haven't really played any multidotting class, but it worked for my paladin's censure/debuffs. And I haven't finished my own UI yet, so it might change a lot still.

    Addons I haven't really set up like I want are tidyplates, fortexorcist, powerauras/weakauras and probably some others. However, I'm very fond of the addons I've listed in my previous answer and got them how I want them.

    - Tidy plates for nameplates and dot tracking and so on
    -Shadowed unit frames for player frames, and all other frames
    - Elkano's buff bars if u want like bars for buffs
    - Quatrz for all cast bars

    All these are very customizable so you can make them look like your own

    1. Tidy Plates (with Threat plates plugin)
    2. Shadowed Unit Frames OR Pitbull (I prefer Pitbull because better config)
    3. WeakAuras / Power Auras + Raven
    4. Gnosis (prefer this because of latency display with ticks) / Quartz

    Thanks alot!
    I came up with a couple of more things:

    - The default raid frames has this tab where you can hide it/show it and do raid markings and stuff. Any addons to move / hide this verticalbar with an arrow on it?

    - A onebag addon with a search option.

    - A better chatframe

    1) i think you have that option via pitbull. i'm sure there are more elegant ways
    2) combuctor
    3) chatter

    regarding dot tracker: there's an active discussion covering a new addon ( http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...k-of-dot-power ) you might want to try that out if you don't like fortexorcist.

    I personally use tukUI with ifilger as my spell tracker/CD tracker.
    - Dot tracking done by Ifilger
    - Player frames are basically tidyplaters with a bit of reform.
    - buff frames both sorted with by tukui/Ifilger
    - Quartz for MF ticks + boss castbars.

    - Pitbull or Shadowed unit frames removes these.
    - Don't use one.
    - Chatter.
