    The raid frames look different for 10 man and parties, like Fuji UI did.

    All I need to do is tweak DBM, fix the class color in my nameplates, and hide the Blizzard raid frame thing on the side. I think I am going to switch to a monochrome outline for the text possibly, but in game it looks a lot better than the screenshots show it, and possibly switch my chat and quest text.
    You should definitely upload your wtf/addon folders for me to use this

    Not a massive fan of Target of Target frame, possibly a little too large but then again I've just got a more "convenient" placing for mine, I guess.

    Did you actually bother fiddling about with the buff spacings? They do look a tad more compact and neater than traditional Elv.

    Not only the minimalistic ones hide much.

    @ Tempeste
    Well done remake.

    @ Kaitain (about your mage UI)

    I am in love with the talent window. Except of the fonts.
    Played too much Borderlands, I guess?

    The UFs are fine, too.
    I'm a mess of unfinished thoughts

    White text on white background? Ouch, my eyes!

    Actually I can read pixel fonts just as easily as any other font, and it doesn't hinder my raiding ability in the slightest. Just because you have a hard time reading it doesn't mean everyone else does too :\ I agree there is a fine line between a well-crafted minimal UI, and a UI with too much hidden, but if you are knowledgeable about what UI features you need on your screen, then it's not difficult to make a functional, minimalistic UI.

    Thanks Lyn. I assume you mean the headline font (CoolDog it's called). Nobody could hate Helvetica and Gotham :-)

    The original idea with using that font was to add some cartoony sort of flavour to go hand in hand with the ink splat motifs. On the target frame I think it works well, but on the talents panel I don't like it. I might just remove it from there. And ye the whole idea came from the superb UI in Borderlands 2. I played that game a lot after quitting raiding a few months ago, and I remember thinking that Blizzard's UI guys really haven't done a very inspiring job over the years (unlike their other art teams). I certainly wouldn't hire many of their UI designers anyways. Thank god for the UI community, or I'd have quit wow after TBC :-)

    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.
    love the UI dude

    quick question, how do you get the health bubble thingy to follow the healtbar? I imagine it's a kgpanel anchored to the healthbar, but I can't seem to figure out what the actual health bar frame is called so I can't acnhor to it Care to help a dude out?

    They replied somewhere that it is actually using WeakAuras, animating the aura to move between two points.

    First of all, hello to a fellow Horde on Ravencrest EU!

    Your UI is beautiful and I would love to use it.

    Is there any reason why you won't release the whole UI with the config folders and the addons themselves, since I'm very interested in it!

    I don't think it's completely finished. Likely waiting for a complete package to release

    I'm Alliance, but hello :-)

    I will do a folder dump style release next week or the week after. I'm on holiday at the moment :-)

    Are you using one of Hal's textures for your nameplate bars?
