I'm thinking something similar too. Most of mists is a really bright place so I'll probably just bring up the opacity to 50-100 (rather than 30-70). I'd like to drop gnosis and fortexorcist for weak auras but I've been throwing all of my warcraft time into getting ready for challenge modes. Log in -> 3-4 dungeons -> bed time.Except the pixel fonts, I really like it. I couldn't stand the color scheme since it's highly unfunctional - especially since the Sha stuff is mostly white/black and your UI uses black as bar background. Another - more vibrant - color would be better tbh.
I really want to use FF Din Pro, Gotham, and the Helvetica throughout my UI but Windows renders fonts like ass, and Warcraft manages to do an even worse job. The versions I have just look terrible and I can't find or make something that looks as nice and works in warcraft.
I'll export the auras for the text, broken as they are, and then you can use stuf or ouf to draw the 3d portrait. The text itself wasn't part of the unit frame because I wanted the middle of my screen free to click mobs spawning etc. It's pretty rare you actually want to click your own unit frame in combat and when I do it'll be from my raid frames.its nice . but i fell in love with your paladins unit frames :P
