    Still working on my UI, unitframes aint done at all, nor is map / info tags still fixing where its all gonna go.

    What are those bars and timers next to your tooltip?

    Assuming this is Elv right? Looks very nice, given me some ideas

    My current UI in progress that I copied from Kaitain:



    Combat:


    Need to find a better way to display all the buffs/debuffs I need to track in raids. Haven't found or seen a good solution yet. Tips are welcome.

    The idea behind this UI is to make it look nice but still be highly functional if you want to perform at top level in raids, which I feel very few UIs out there do.

    You sure you wouldn't like to abbreviate those names?
    Here's a piece of code(courtesy of touchymcfeel) that was meant for Pitbull, but that I think would work for WA(I'm assuming that's what you've used):
    Code:
    local abbr = Name(unit)
    if abbr:len() > 20 and abbr:find(" ") then
      abbr = abbr:gsub("([^ ]+) +",
        function(text)
            return text:sub(1,1) .. ". "
        end)
    end
    return "%s", abbr;
    also, do you really need to be reminded of your level, race and class? Wouldn't that be fairly obvious?
    and, thick outlines aren't very pretty.

    Abbreviate what names? The level/race/class on player frame is just for symmetry. Thought that was fairly obvious. I have no out line what so ever on my unitframes. I have thin outline on my WA icons because they stand out more that way. Functionality>>Prettiness. That is why I don't use pixel fotns for anything I need to glance at quickly. And that is also why I don't tuck away my raid frames in corner.

    The ones of your target. You apparently want to cut them off, why not try to fit the whole name.

    I was talking about the ones on your castbar...

    if you were going for pure functionality you wouldn't be doing some of the things you're doing. Using the same fonts, textures, shapes and placement goes a long way in making things predictable, with the added benefit of "not looking like shit"

    Just a question to everybody out there that has these streamlined clean UI's without any actionbars: Do you just toggle them off for these pictures or are you memorizing 100+ keybinds? I just find it hard to believe one can remember so many keybinds to have no actionbars at all out while playing.

    Oh, the ones on cast bars. I hadn't noticed it. Thanks! They look like the unit frames font now.

    What I meant was that I am not going to remove functionality to make it pretty. I use same font except for damage meter because the font I use for unitframes is very pixelated at small sizes. My placement of stuff are ideal for me or any other player that wants to perform at max level. That much I know.

    I remember all my keybinds. It's not really hard once you used them for a bit. I think I have like 60-80 keybinds in total.

    Wow, thats just impossible in my world. Are you savant? J/K. Really pretty UI's though, I might borrow it for my Boomie/Warlock would it work as well as it does with your sp?

    That's really beautiful Ariadne. Reminds me a bit of Real UI, just prettier. D:

    The cast bar especially struck my eye, specifically the channeled effect. Which addon is that?

    Most likely but you can get the effect you like with this as well

    Cheers. I've been using Quartz for years and years. Heard a lot of good about Gnosis though, might give it a try.

    Trying to go with a very clean yet nice looking UI.

    At the moment it's just a UI for me personally, catering to my play-style which I imagine other people would not particularly like.
    Not to mention that a lot of AddOns that I use are out of date and can be be annoying to deal with, unless you're used to doing so, like me.
    .
    Just was curious , If i give any specific UI a try, i always end up tweaking it a bit to fit my style of play - good work overall

    Small update.

    Idle


    Solo combat


    Considering a unified color scheme, with class colored power bars instead of health bars.

    Attempting to put together a couple of old UIs.

    This one and This one.

    Believe it or not this is a completely different oUF Layout from the one I had 3 days ago.





    todo:

    Sort out buff/debuff/tracker/cooldown icon sizing and locations.
    Fix the castbar timers that I broke.
    Make the castbar class colored.
    Figure out how to get a different class/reaction color on the health bars, similar to how they are in the second screenshot above.
