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 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.
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4:Large icon grey = on cd and the buff is no longer active.
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.

Ontopic; Yeah I musta missed that picture, this thread has been busy last few days, will post a picture on sunday, not raiding again til then
Thinking about overhauling my WA's to something more like yours bOOURNS.
Here's another UI i made ( when i say "made" i mean i took most of it from Fraggoji and made some improvements )
Omen and Skada show in combat ( Omen ) and in a group ( Skada ) just above the chat frame,

Read the sticky thread on how to post screenshots. There are guides for each image hosting site.
IF someone could advise some nice font for skada would be really appreciated.

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
add inCode:-- 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;
**NOTE**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;
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).
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.
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.

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.
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.

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