Since classic, I have been keeping player frame in it's original place (top left) and target frame top middle. I have never been super-efficient with my UI (never played serious raiding or pvp), and I'm really used to it. But now that i started running LFR, target frame blocks too much of my view, as I like to keep my frames kinda large (my monitor is far away).
Many UI's seem to place target (and player) frames in lower half of the screen. What's the real reason? Not blocking anything or just that one would not need to move his eyes that much from center of the screen?
Is there other common places for target frames? I do realize that it's just matter of getting accustomed to, but I would like to try few different things for my new UI arrangement. I'm not really interested getting whole UI pack nor changing my addons (been using perl classic since -06 lol), just the position of player and target frames.
