    OT: Anachronos has other players?! *shock* Janz who? I have no idea who you're talking about, honest... erhm

    The cooldowns on the bottom I made with Weakauras. Many many Weakauras. Each "button" is three auras. 1:small ready to use, 2:larger on cooldown and 3: the status bar above it. Number 2 animates grow and shrink on show and hide.

    While you might not like the grey, I can not please everyone. I got flack for having lighter color and was told it was too bright. Changed to darker now getting told its dull. Either way I prefer the darker as it lets the class color mana/energy/rage/focus stand out nicely.

    I agree, and one never can nor should please everyone, just oneself I do concur that the contrast is very nice and one can indeed see mana etc. clearly.

    I had no idea one could do that much with weak auras (switched recently from PA). I really like the status bar and the cohesive clean look, going to have a tinker and see if I can recreate it. They are some of the best looking auras I have seen in a very long time.

    Thanks! Yeah you can do a ton with Weakauras and some imagination. I used to have them all about 5 auras per button set up like.
    1:Small color = ready
    2:Small grey = on cd
    Large icon would grow and slide up above the small icon.
    3:Large icon color = buff active from the cd.
    4:Large icon grey = on cd and the buff is no longer active.
    5:Status bar.

    But this just got out of hand and since I have to make each set of cooldowns for each specific spec and class I play, I had to cut it down to 3 auras per button.

    So yeah you're only limited to the time you wanna sink into it. You can create some really nice HUDS or something that looks like. Whole separate addon all within WA.

    I am wondering why no one is talking about this masterpiece? In my mind it's one of the greatest UI's I have ever seen and I would be one lucky panda if you are willing to share it

    OOC:

    Omen and Skada show in combat ( Omen ) and in a group ( Skada ) just above the chat frame,

    Will have a combat SS later today

    Read the sticky thread on how to post screenshots. There are guides for each image hosting site.

    Be prepared to spend a lot of time and make a lot of auras My CD's are 36 auras and that's just for resto spec, add in more for enhance specific ones to replace resto specific ones. Also needs to be done for each and every class you play on top of specs. >_< Not exactly efficient but looks good

    Also since you are using ElvUI there is an edit you can make in WeakAuras to skin the borders on the Progress Bars to match. (icons are skinned via ElvUI_AddOnSkins)

    WeakAuras -> RegionTypes -> aurabar.lua -> around line 278

    Above
    Code:
    -- Create statusbar (inherit prototype)
      local bar = CreateFrame("FRAME", nil, region);
      local fg = bar:CreateTexture(nil, "ARTWORK");
      local bg = bar:CreateTexture(nil, "ARTWORK");
      fg:SetDrawLayer("ARTWORK", 2);
      bg:SetDrawLayer("ARTWORK", 1);
      bar.fg = fg;
      bar.bg = bg;
    add in

    Code:
    local bg = CreateFrame("Frame", nil, region);
        bg:Point("TOPLEFT", region, "TOPLEFT", -2, 2);
        bg:Point("BOTTOMRIGHT", region, "BOTTOMRIGHT", 2, -2);
        bg:SetTemplate("Transparent");
        bg:SetFrameStrata("BACKGROUND");
        region.bg = bg;
    **NOTE**
    If your ElvUI is in "PixelMode" (which i believe yours is) change the point values (-2, 2) and (2, -2) to (-1, 1) and (1, -1).

    If they're not using pixel fonts already I wouldn't recommend changing to one.

    So after 2 expansions, after countless UI ideas, and some heavy thinking, I think I finally crafted a UI I can really call "My UI". I really grew away from my Dicate-Influenced VxtUI that I put on WoWInterface, and made most of my UI's available to friends and PM requests. But at the end of the day I never really had one that I was totally satisfied with. Until now. Below is a screen of what I have crafted, and I am 100% happy with it. Actionbars will be visible, but when I use it, all actionbars are hidden, as I use WeakAuras for just about everything that requires tracking. Anyways, enjoy, and I may upload this Ui for everyone to use, as I will be maintaining it.

    Thanks to Duskmoon for the awesome Sig/Avatar/Banner!

    Damn, looks good. Player and target health bars are too tall for my liking though. 3/4ths the height and it'll be good.

    Because it's a massive change from normal fonts, and a step that needs to be decided on personally.

    Way to big unitframes imo, half the size and a bit longer would look better.

    Anyone know how I can get spells that require chi to activate properly? I want blackout kick, breath of fire, etc to act like the spells with cooldowns do and move left to right when I use them and I can't figure out what to set in weakauras to do that.

    Dummy UI Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Q4bSOEZFw0

    The white number below my player frame is for elusive brew stacks, I don't know if I should have it there or just go with the icon above shuffle if I can get it to go away when I actually use it since it's in the bar above the player frame as well and I just need to see how many charges I have on it.

I also sometimes pull aggro after an add spawns and I've had good burst on it. This is usually countered by salvation but sometimes due to personal failiure (which always is going to be happening), it's not enough. Most notably on heroic Un'sok where the tank is running when we pull and I don't wait.

    Oh, and the "actual bad players" have better world rank than you do. Hell, our tank recently even was in the rank 1 guild around before joining ours.

Nameplates are way more than enough to gauge threat on things like trash packs. So really there isn't a need for another addon telling you something nameplates already tell you. On top of this WoW displays warnings that you're gaining/losing aggro why have a meter for it to tell you what you already know.

    I don't see any benefit to knowing you're 236.74629k behind the tank in threat and is just wasted memory and CPU cycles IMO.

    Anyways I still stand by that. He wanted ideas to clean his UI and for me getting rid of multiple displays of the same thing is a quick and easy way to lessen clutter.
    The omen can still be shown in a very minimalistic way. I don't see any issues with it when it takes less than 1% of my screen. (http://i.imgur.com/opVRT.jpg for reference, bottom right corner, still takes a bit too much space due to my slackiness).

    I guess you just don't burst too much when you pull bosses.

    I have the same issues with threat on pull (moonkin here too) Using skada as threat just for first 30sec so I dont get punched in the face by the boss.
    Omen, seems a bit of a waste when you can use a dps meter to do the same thing.
