    Could be TellMeWhen. Not sure though, but I used it too once, and it looked like that.

    Very good looking, though, there are a small difference in width of your dot timers and the cast bar, from the looks of it, because the dot timers don't have a border. And why are you tracking ICD and CDs with two addons, one at the bottom of the screen, the CD bar, and the MB/Halo/Mindbender + the ICD under and to the right of that?

    the ICD is being tracked in the forte cooldown bar and only being tracked there .. Procs are being tracked through weakauras as a progress bar but they also show up on Raven. MB is on the WeakAuras mainly because of Divine Insight which is harder for me to tell when ive proc it without seing a visual aura and it was just easier to keep it on WeakAuras. There are a couple of things a tad bigger then they need to be its just a matter of going into the settings and playing with the sizes of the dot timers.

    Korallis was correct, it is WeakAuras.

    What's the use of a cooldown bar at the very bottom of your screen?

    still trying to figure out a good spot for it atm, i was thinking somewhere above the player castbar but not entirely sure i personally do not like it where its at but i was tired from working on the ui all day figuring out what settings did what in the lua coding for the unitframes that i decided to get lazy towards the end.

    Yes, but why have WeakAuras AND fortexorcists cooldown progressbar?

    I have TellMeWhen and the timers in the vid was behaving 'weirdly' compared to what TMW does. And it seems that it was WeakAuras after all, but thanks for the reply.

    Thank you. Me and Weakauras doesn't blend that well so i think that i'll just have to drool over the timers this time. xD

    I could probably bang up a basic example of a 'moving icon' style aura and a bar to display times fairly easily and then just post an import string. It's not particularly difficult to make a weak auras display that functions basically identical to the fx cooldown bar. The only down side is that you'd have to create auras for every ICD/cooldown/etc you want to track and you'll also be responsible for the 'complicated' triggers that might be required for some ICDs etc.

    It's not an insurmountable challenge but there are enough edge cases that I didn't want to make it a tutorial video.

    Got a bit bored, so I started having some fun with my UI.



    While casting:


    Disabled Grid, Forte and DBM to make it a bit easier to find spots for stuff. Still a lot of things left to be done, but I kinda like it!

    DeeUi 5

    Think all is clearly understandable beyond Weakaura groups so i will explain it short.
    Over player unitframes there are 2 dinamic groups which show:
    1. Trinket procs (grayscale)+ Tier 6 and defensive abilities that i should use on CD (green) <-left part
    2. Important DPS procs - actions i has to use -important CD's ready to be used <-right part
    3.Above all thoose icons there is my ignite tracker
    4. Cooldowns are in a dinamic group under target unitframe.
    Sorry for vuhdo option panel apearing in 3rd pic but couldnt find a quicker way to show raidframes.





    Feedback highly apreciated

    i like it alot,
    the only thing i would personaly change is the bottom bar, id make it the same height as the minimap and maybe bring it closer to the left by 2px so it shows the border seen as you have the border on the left.
    other than that thats a damn well made ui

    I know that I need to rework some elements, but this seems like my first UI:

    General UI:

    Raid UI:

    It's tough finding addon's that do what you want but eventually I've managed to put together this UI. It has all the utility required to suit the playstyle of a mage and I couldn't live without it.

    I'm not a massive design guru or anything, but I do understand a clean and thought out UI. With that in mind, a few questions if you wouldn't mind:

    1: Why the mini-map? I mean, it's an 8th of the whole screen! In your raid shot for example I don't understand the purpose of such a large map.

    2: Pretty much the same question about recount. What benefit is there for you in having such a large chunk of your screen eaten by your damage meter during a fight?

    3: Raid frames. As a mage, why have your frames laid out by class and why so big (again)?

    Personally I don't like it, but that's just my taste. When I see UIs like this where I don't understand the design though, rather than complain etc. I'd like to ask why it suits you and why you made the choices you did.

    Questions aside, the mana bar is huge and I secretly like that. I can imagine incorporating that into a DeeUI type of interface...

    My ui is big because it's easier to see and I really don't find it restricting at all. There's no point in wasting unused screen space and I've never had a problem with not being able to see something. I do sit about a foot from my 23 inch 1080p screen which could have something to do with why it works so well for me.

    The raid frames in the picture is in lfr and are much smaller in 10man raiding of course. I don't see how I could make the raid frames any smaller without losing the ability to see it as easily. I like being able to see people's health. The only problem with it is I can't set it up to show the hero debuff. Having it sorted by class I just find useful. The symmetry of the ui really works for me and my perfectionism and I like having a lot of detail.

    Something I forgot to show is the focus frame which sits just to the left of the big blink button. When I'm raiding I can pretty much see everything useful by looking at my bars at the bottom of the screen. The health bar is more useful then the mana bar since mages can't go oom anymore.
