    I could probably get rid of the Theck Priority WeakAuras, true. They are only there because the big buttons are towards the bottom of the screen, so I find myself glancing down to notice the cooldown progress, so that's a second or two that I'm not looking at the middle of the screen. Still need to experiment as in the past I relied on CLCProt and I felt it made me weaker overall so I've been trying to wean myself off of relying on an addon to tell me what button to hit next.

    The other set of Weak Auras (the second row) is the cooldown progress on my defensive cooldowns, since those buttons are faded out and extremely hard to notice if the ability is ready or not, and hen the big bars are for the actual "This cooldown is active" time.

    If it was me I'd get rid of clc and the weak auras ( the ones for cs/as/j/hw/conc ). scale down the actual action buttons and then move them up in place of the weak auras (and you can keep the cd ones below if you like).

    Modified from frantik's UI. I liked the concept of it, but needed to be able to track my chi and energy and I couldn't figure out where to put them and make them look nice in the weakaura group.

    Will post a in combat screenshot as soon as I get into LFR on the PTR.

    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 :-)
    Yeah the headline font was the one I meant. I mean a cartoony one is not bad, but somehow this one is ... too much. But sadly I have no alternative in mind atm.
    Oh yes, BL2 has an awesome UI. I would build one in WoW if I would still play. Sadly even the UI community couldn't stop me from quitting.

    Pretty awesome, except the font.

    Updated it a bit more. Thanks frantik for the chi/energy bar.

    Changed a few things since I last posted. I still have to change some other stuff like the width of the threat bar and some fonts.

    Do you have any font recommendations?

    I will flay your mind.

    I'm pretty sure that FQTT is the font that Lyn is referring to. You seem to be using 2 different fonts in the video, the other being Expressway RG. I'd use that as your universal font for everything, rather than having it only for some things. If you want font suggestions, just go to a site like dafont or ufonts and find a nicely proportioned sans-serif font. Expressway is a nice font anyway and is why I suggest you just use that, since you are already using it for some things like timers.

    Ah yes, well I already am using Expressway on Reposed, (Soul - the one in the video - I only use for testing out UI tweaks, so yes, the font is varied on that one, my bad.)

    I will flay your mind.

    Server was down when I logged on tonight, so I thought I'd see how fast I could make a basic levelling UI with Stuf. Took about an hour.



    Player buffs aren't showing (they'd be by the minimap above the debuffs, but I don't think level 10 hunters have any buffs).

    Attractive. What are the two brown boxes tracking on either side of the unit frames?
    That is not dead which can eternal lie.
    And with strange aeons even death may die.

    Left one is Pet and right one is TargetOfTarget. I guess ToT should probably have a name label. I didn't think of that..

    My "UI" (more like my TellMeWhen config) in action:

    It's a video highlighted from my low-bandwidth stream. (Dont worry, that background shows only in my stream if I change the Scene. )

    UI as of 9/2/2013 (Prot Main)

    Few things to note:
    -All weakauras shown show outside of missings (Righteous Fury/Seal/Sacred Shield on myself or focus/weakened blows/talents)
    --The lightning lash weak aura set is for Primordius only and is against the left side of my screen mirroring Boss frames
    -Gnosis castbars usually hidden, only shown for obvious reasons
    -Everything else fairly self explanatory, will clarify anything confusing :]
    -Omen sits between ToT/Focus (below Player/Target)

    I changed a couple things up:





    -Still not sure if I like my vengeance bar (the red bar under my rage) as apposed to just displaying the text value.
    -Still getting used to the transparent Unit frames.
    -I know a couple people have asked for my WA strings and I'll probably finish my T16 raid aura string and upload it sometime this week.
