    I've been (and still am) a DPS'er, a Tank and a Healer on High End content through all my WoW carreer and I've always used minimalistic UI's.

    I find this is the best way to learn any new keybinds. I don't really need it on my shaman as I know the keybinds in and out, but on any new chars or alts even, I find it to be the best way to force myself to remember my keybinds.
    I got 2 bars for my spells, 4 major cds there, but rest is almost utility, and then ontop of my healingframes i got 7-8 cds that i track also, even if i dont look at them always i tend to look at both those and my buttons, incase i miss something.

    I tried a lfr without my bars at all, and just cooldown buttons and it feels abit empty, ofc it take time to get used to it, but if i cant do my best id just rather stick to my default setting.

    I think its rather nice having cooldowns that dissapears and buttons that still show, cause at some point u will be stuck with all ur cooldowns used, and u dont want to lose 2-3 sec thinking hmm what spell havent i casted now, just cause u disabled ur buttons, it can be a lifesafer just being able to see it.

    Some uis they are showing like 8 buttons of their 8 most used spells, do they really have the other 20+ spells bound , or do they have to hover over a hidden bar to click it, wouldnt be so good imo, losing time there also. This is all personal preference ofc

    This is my edited version of qulight UI. I try to keep the UI minimalistic, informal but also aesthetic.

    Screenshot of my clean setup on my rogue (Idle).


    Screenshot of the setup on my DK, showing bar timers over the player frame (Combat).


    I still consider it a work in process, so please post ideas and feedback!

    Probably because less people do hard modes, and out of the people actually doing hardmodes there are probably only a few who really care about minimal UI's.

    I mean, I hate around 90% of the UI's people use for normal raiding too. I doubt that when you play hard modes you suddenly need massive amounts of extra information anyway.

    Okey, decided to make a new profile and completely re-do the design (Led++) style

    I finally figured out how to make the borders look good in stuf, just had to put some touches on them with kgpanel :P

    However, there is one thing I haven't figured out yet and that is how to trunctate or abbriviate the text so it doesn't overlap the frames.

    I dont think u need more information, i think u tend to get more, cant find the word, but u look more often at timers and when things are off cooldown.

    I had the same problem with truncate in stuf, just make the width smaller on the text and it should work out, after u do that try target some random ppl with long names, and then short names and see if the text fits

    1. The timers on your buff icons up top can be bumped to the right a couple pixels.
    2. Im not in love with the totembar location
    3. Black borders on your upper and lower panels and your minimap are 2px instead of 1px
    4. When I used AzCastbar, I used only the bar part and disabled all the texts and then used the castbar texts from stuf to easily match the fontflags as AzCastbar has no fontflag in game for outline monochrome without a shadow. You could change it in the lua ofcourse if you want, but I found my cheat to be easier

    1. Updated!
    2. Yeah, stupid totem bar just making things awkward, needs to be fixed, probably just have it on mouseover or something :P
    3.Right you are, I'll get that fixed.
    4. Never thought about that, consider it done!
    5. Thanks for the feedback!
    6. Also changing the shadowoffset on unitframes text to 0 ^^

    That's not really a solution. Its a suggestion, and a bad one at that. Shamans are the best! :P

    Keeping this on topic, an old screenshot:

    I miss my legendary mace bubbles

    Anyway! I think I'm going to make a new Ui with 4px wide borders instead of 3px wide borders (like the borders in the ss above) and maybe use some class color paneling for the borders instead of gray.

    And use a much simpler layout, perhaps one closer to this:

    Nope, I haven't uploaded it anywhere, but I could put it up on wowinterface if you're still interested. I would use curse.com if I could, but I use a bunch of addons which aren't available to the addon packer function.

    Yes, please upload it to wowinterface I am sure a lot more than just me would like to use it.

    Thanks!

    Glen, WTB 1360x768 (or whatever res that is). I think your UI is amazingly clean and very functional. I know thats a lot of work and time, but if you ever got around to it, I know a lot of people who would be very appreciative.

    Nice. Hal's UI is also one of my favorite UI's ever. Proper use of fonts. Kids nowadays just use pixel fonts which looks horrible.

    I would like to make the UI available for multiple resolutions, but it makes it quite difficult to keep the UI working and updated. I've done another UI, and many times people will ask me to remake it into another resolution. It's a slippery slope, 'cause every time I add one more resolution to the list of compatible ones, I'll get a request for a new one As much as I like fiddling with addons, I like playing games more
