I'll apologize in advance for the possible noob question... but I'm a noob healer (disc priest) in the sense that I haven't healed in a raid before, just 5-mans and BH. I'm looking to try it out, and figured maybe I should try to optimize my UI before jumping in. I've found a lot of great suggestions here that I'm looking forward to fiddling with. I have been using Grid + Clique, and Grid Corners Plus, and that seems to work fine for me, but I have a question: do most of you use a separate addon like Decursive or something similar to track debuffs to be dispelled, etc, or do you just use whatever is integrated in your Grid, VuhDo, or rely on DBM warnings, etc? I have my Grid set up currently to show the debuff icon in the center of the box, but I'm wondering if there are cases in some raids where maybe a player has more than one debuff, and one should be dispelled, one not, in which case my current setup wouldn't be ideal. Maybe I'm being paranoid, but just trying to think of ways to improve my setup. Thanks for the help.
Unit Frames: Shadowed Unit Frames
Raid Frames: Grid - Note that I am alone in the screenshot. Grid expands and remains centered and grows upward. I only do 10-mans thus this is not obtrusive.
Cast Bars: Quartz (I'm using a really awesome skin for this as well as DBM) In the center, the lower bar is mine. Above that is my target, and over my focus frame on the right is (obi) my focus targets.
Boss Mod: Deadly Boss Mods (I leave just enough room above my unit frame for my pet frame when I have one (when balance or on an alt).
Buff Bars: Satrina Buff Frames
Chat Mod: Pratt
Damage Meter: Recount
Other neat stuff: The SCT looking thing over my chat frame is EavesDrop. It tracks healing taken and done as well as damage taken and done (the way I have it set up). I can easily scroll through events and link them in chat. I first downloaded this when off tanking for my guild on my warrior during wrath. It's awesome to see what's killing you on progression. Love this add-on.
I used to use decursive but nowdays i just did mouseover cleanse and use it with grid since atm there aint that many shit that can be dispelled. Its like Rhyolith trash, Alysrazor add fierybolt (only if interupter fails) and Ragnaros (only if someone fails to move) so not that much needed atm. Allso you can config your grid to show certain debuffs on different spots or dont show anything ells except the debuff you want it to show wich makes is simple as hell
Game master's advise to my low FPS / people run in place and then speed run / people start fight and almost die when I'm freezed into happy idling -problems was to delete all addons... again. So I went berserk and started without anything. I sat my toon to busiest spot on SW to see if people started to run in place/freeze. Then one-by-one I selected addons that seemed to work. Power auras & titan panel needed to go. Thanks for people that gave addon suggestions here.
Testing on 5-man:
Finding good buff&defuff addon was the hardest part. Tested; WeakAuras, TellMeWhen, ClassTimer, etc. Either they dropped my fps or configuration for harmony uptime was too hard/unclear (harmony = buff from mastery that should always be active). Now I'm using ForteXorcist and it seems to work nicely. I just needed to remove some tags so it would not track too many things (aka things that I can see from healing frames). I just need to get used to see what spells I can not use, instead on seeing what is available like I had in PowerAuras.
@Pakkpekatt, I tested healbot and vuhdo on FL environment. I needed to add some traccings to Healbot (Baleroc shards, etc). Vuhdo seems to have everything ready. I'm currently using vuhdo.
I love this. I know you've mentioned before that it can be a pain to upload a UI and have people complain about things not working correctly, but I would LOVE to use what you've put together. I think it's so clean and so well put together, job well done. <3
Yeah I keep thinking about it, perhaps after the next patch comes out I may post it. I don't like having to upload every time TukUI updates or whatever, I'd prefer to just do it once per patch.
