    Might have better luck in this thread.

    I hate the chat placement though. I would park those in the bottom edges anytime. In a UI like that I probably would use a threatmeter/scrolling combat text there. Or some more weakaura stuff. The most crucial spot in your UI should not be poluted by spam.
    I'm with Zorky. I actually like the UI even though it's not my cup of tea. But the chat placement is really just useless and takes up space that is rather important. Having clean screen edges on the bottom part of the screen really isn't useful.

    Plan is to release it in an unsupported sort of way, mainly for other UI guys to dig around in the files if they want to.
    Looks fantastic, but I'm curious; how did you make those health orbs above the bars?

    Good spot! Will do.

    I definitely see your point, and I kind of agree. For me it's not such an issue as the way I play I'm so used to having so little UI that for this interface I was actually searching around for things to fill the space up a bit, just to give it a different look :-) I think what it comes down to is that I make UIs for myself only, so the usability only really matches 1 player. I share them just for interest.

    I plan to use a lot subtle brief sound alerts with this UI. It works so insanely well in arena with that GladiatorlosSA addon that I want to try do a similar thing with rotational things for PvE.

    The idea was from RealUI, and Evn made some code for me a while back.

    Thanks again for that Evn :-)

    The method is mostly outlined in this thread. To summarise, you make a macro that simulates a click on the talent panel button, and also sends a custom event trigger to weak auras. You then make a bunch of auras that switch on and off when they receive that event. Finally, key bind the macro to the key that you normally use to toggle the talents window.

    The taint issue that gets left unresolved at the end of that thread was fixed later by my guild mate by just altering the trigger macro slightly to be:
    Code:
    /click TalentMicroButton
    /run PlayerTalentFrame:SetPoint("TOPLEFT",635, -395)
    /run WeakAuras.ScanEvents("EVN_O")

    Actually your idea on the talent frame popup is awesome. Creating a player model rotated on the bottom right and the cinematic black background. I really digg that.

    @Kaitain, your UI's are really inspiring. I was wondering if you had previously explained how you handle your Unit Frames? For example, I can make weak auras for player frames that simulate health and power gains/losses, but how do I make those weak auras interactive so that I can right click them and get the interaction drop down?

    That's one of the reasons why I always use Stuf Unit Frames along with WeakAuras. I only use WeakAuras to do things that Stuf can't. Which isn't much (Stuf is so damn cool) but it's a few funky things.

    Abilities without a cooldown, spammable fillers etc also have no need for a cooldown display.

    Addons such as Opie allow a "clickable" interface sort of for groups of buttons, so taking stuff off the action bars and hidden from view until you want it.
    Also there can be action bars visible only on mouseover, typically on one side of the screen.
    I have all my skills keybinded, still I need to see everything. I cannot possibly even memorize all of them.

    I dont believe any of you really memorize all binds in a way that you dont need to see action bar. Yet many people have only part of their skills visible during raid. I suspect they are not that good players to begin with. Instead people I know are good, have all their skills visible in user interface.

    it was a complete hurp moment for myself, because i can figure this crap out on my own, so i have not the slightest idea why i even asked. guessing between work, and school, i've been a little exausted.

    I disagree. I personally don't have any "actionbars" visible. Since I can infact remember every single keybind, and not only when I'm playing.
    However, there are several ways to display cooldowns of certain spells, allowing me to not have the actual actionbar visible at all times, but only when that spell itself is on CD, or has come off-of it's CD = reminding me to use it.
    This allows me to have more clean areas on my screen,rather than having spells show that I have no use for at that time.

    Ones UI rarely has anything to do with skill, it's a personal preference. Unless it's a sh*t UI that makes you perform worse ^^

    Actually it's called muscle memory, and you can in fact, remember them all if you have played that character enough. I have 24 key bound, non-visible spells and 10 unbound, visible keys. As well as multiple bars that are visible only when I scroll over them. (Such as my menu bar) Visible keys that I already have memorized are a distraction from what I really need to be paying attention and more hindrance than help.

    What allows good players to hide keys that they do have memorized, to stay on track as far as cd's and rotation, are separate addons like weak auras. Saying that a player is probably not good because they play differently than you is pretty ignorant, and you would probably fair better with an open mind rather than an open mouth.

    The main bit of sparklies around the big thing between player and target frames is dedicated to the bombs. I think the bombs adds a lot of aesthetic flavour to your talents so it's nice to have them really visible. The small circles above that are other rotation stuff (for fire it's heating up and pyro!, and for arcane it's missiles stacks, etc). And ofc on the arcane the big number is arcane stacks. Talents screen is just a version of my resto druid's UI setup.
    Soooooo nice UI, hoping for upload .

    The castbar shadow works because the text is there and if it wasn't I think it would look strange. You could try the same texture above the health bar because the name is there so it would fit in better.
    You are right. It's perfect now.

    The bottom 2 look more complicated because of my spells and class timers on top so keep that in mind. The Player frame also has a much larger height for the mana bar and a shorter height for the health bar since this is my Healing layout for my UI and so far I have found it more useful since Grid Raid Frames show my health anyway and never really use my Unit Frames to gather than information.

    The Top image is the old style and bottom 2 is the new with the bottom one using a cast bar:


    The image on the left does work when you click it but the thumbnail is not loading due to a strange error.
    Hey Pharrax,
    Could you PM/post screenshot of your SUF settings, because i have been fiddling around with it a lot and I can't seem to get it right.
    (I am referring to the look of the second option).
    I know your UI is up for download, but then i would have to delete and reinstall all my own addons (which took me hours to configure).

    Here's mine - just Skullflower's Elv edit with NTK, MSBT, BigWigs, SexyCooldowns2 and WeakAuras.



    (I noticed that there were still debuffs under the UFs - removed. I like the SexyCooldowns method much better.)

    Started working on UI again after a break from playing.

    Pretty barebones atm.

    Here's my UI:

    OOC:


    Raid:


    Not quite sure what to do with the bars on the side. Kinda dislike their positioning. Feedback/ideas much appreciated.

    Also, of course I should remove the raidbarthingie at the left side. Don't even use it so there's no purpose for using it.

    Oh, and credit goesout to jeremypwnz, since I kinda stole his rActionbuttonstyler and rBuffframestyler layouts (hope that's ok).
