    DK PvP UI

    Sup all, I'm currently lvling a DK, but I'm having trouble with my UI unit frame placement.

    I've got these 4 locations in mind for my unit frame and my target's unitframe. Seeing as the current placement of the player/target unitframes is too far in the corner, and harder to track for in PvP.

    Reasons I'm altering my UI so much also is because of the well known DK Reinhart. He said he doesn't necessarily check his actionbars to attack with scourge strike etc, but rather watch his runes manually to determine which attack he can do next. But for that to work, I had to relocate everything seeing as the default UI with the runes is quite inconvenient to regularly check.

    EDIT: Had to remove the [IMG] tags because IDK how to resize the images :/
    2nd EDIT: Forgot to ask the question... which UI placement of these 4 would be most optimal in your eyes? What are the cons you would reckon?

    Fourth one. It will keep your eyes centered to the screen most. It allows you to be more aware instead of fixated to one side or the top.

    I try to not look at my unit frames TOO much seeing as I have the above head health bars active. The unit frames I only watch for my runes and for the debuffs of my opponents, which is why I thought either the 2nd or the 3rd one would be best. But I'm having trouble with focusing on those and on my character itself. While with the 4th one I focus too much on the unit frames so I can't focus on my character.

    I'm just tunnel visioning so much on my DK, it's unbelievable >.<

    Well okay, I'm gonna try the 4th set-up again tomorrow.

    You still have to be aware of your own HP. Tracking runes can be useful too, but there are things that make that easier too. As a DK you have to be aware how dangerous being at ~50% is, and be able to just run when it's necessary. Your target frame isn't too important though ;P

    Yeah I was thinking the same. Which is why I prefer to have the unit frames close together so I can track my runic power, runes AND enemy debuffs while also having an eye on my own HP.
