    Base is RealUI (from WoWInterface), but I've done tons of edits (obviously..). What I'd really love is for some addon to fix the Blizzard boss frames since Pitbull doesn't have that functionality.
    If you are use to "modding" then you can get boss frames with pitbull!
    Here is a look on how mine looks on stone guards

    As you can see the boss frames pop up just perfect with pitbull if you are willing to take the 5 mins to do the following :

    Hope this gets you what you want out of your UI

    OMG I lurve you! I haven't wanted to swap to SUF since I'd need to learn a whole new bit of coding to get the texts the way I want them, but this is PERFECT. Thank you thank you thank you!

    Totally! Its worthless information no human can parse anyway. It uses to be cool back when it was new though

    Thats mine, after going back and forth with some different concepts i found that at least for my Paladin theres no need for unitframe addons
    Most of it is scripts which i collected, edited and put into an addon.
    You can see Skada and TSM of course, both i disable for raiding so the only addon i have left is holytrinity which is awesomely lightweight for all the juicy functionality its offering.

    Its gonna need a lot of polish and tomorrow im gonna code some more notification icons, hide buffs with long durations and some other stuff iv got in my mind (after i figured how to code it light on the cpu).

    Throttle the OnUpdate appropriately. For buff icons, 10 runs per second should be appropriate. More runs means even more accurate timers at the cost of even more CPU usage.

    Make sure you upvalue all the functions you need at the start of your file. Never create tables in OnUpdate - recycle them.

    I would say SUF has texts a lot more user friendly than Pitbull. You just have a menu where you click on what you want, and the rest happens on its own. Text placements aren't any more difficult either. Simple location dropdown, then X,Y values to fine tune.

    Jesus. That's eerily similar. I think I prefer your raid frames too :P
    Great job recreating my UI!

    Yeah, that's fine for most people I'm sure, but I'm very particular with my text display and the way I want it to show isn't among the standard examples. I'd have to learn how to write my own code for it, whereas in Pitbull the ones I want are already there.

    thx for the info, i appreciate it and if im hitting a wall i know who to spam with the question.

    Yeah i hate it if people doesnt reuse stuff but simply write it down every time again...i remember a project for a simple check figure´s moving options and somebody i knew wrote like 300lines of code on a 30lines matter

    Pixil, how are you tracking ignite with no addon/combat text?

Oh and most of us couldn't even afford our epic car mount to drive there, we had to settle for our 60% bike mounts.

    If I had to guess id say they combust after a Heating up ->inferno blast->!pyro as you are guaranteed both pyro and ignite up on the target.

    Looking at many WOL you can see many mages are still holding on for that golden ignite to try and get a big combust but with the new 45s cd on it just use it when you can and gogogo... seeing 2 used in 7 - 8 min fights is just disheartning!

    But you have no idea if the Pyro crit, not to mention you cant see if your ignite is stacking or not.

    Maybe its just me, but I think you've sacrificed performance for minimalism.

    Quite offended that you think that actually. TIL that it's harder to see a heating up proc in the middle of your screen than a number popping up on the target.

    Ignite is not hard to track and combustion is certainly not hard to use, even without combat text (as long as you know what you're doing. Which I assure you, I do).
    Besides this being off topic regarding the thread subject, I would rather not have to read about how I lack in performance in raids.

    That's only in 25+man actually, 10mans looks like this:



    I have to work in DBM's positioning and Boss frames a little. I had to separate ExtraButton because of the shadows blocking the "CD tracker", I might try to add some Cooldown Bar to that.

    You can see the right bar with trash disapearing when the combat starts

    Also quite transparent MSBT.

    This is awesome. Really cool being able to see this UI in action when I am not personally using it.
    Also it's allowed me to see things which you've improved on, and things which I like the way they are.
    I like the sparkly icon alerting you to use Invocation, and I prefer the positioning of your Invocation timer (above the center of the focus frame, rather than above the right edge)
    One thing that stuck out though: dbm covering the buffs in the top right corner. Tssk tssk! :P

    Also I know your pain with the extra action button: http://screencast.com/t/sfbvZCsHyhJ7
    For some reason I've been ignoring it an not moving it haha. Will move it when I can be bothered :')
