    No it's one I made myself. It's just pure flat white*. High tech shiz ;-)

    * - the reason I had to make it is because the other common totally flat texture, called "Flat" in shared media, has a source file that is a middle grey, which means bright colours can't be made with it. Seeing as Stuf can assign any colour to bars, I thought it would be better to use a white source file so then you can actually choose any colour.

    I redid my UI the other night. This version is influenced by Fraggoji's UI, with some differences that I prefer and using ElvUI as a base for a unified look.

    Here's a shot with all the WeakAuras and aura placeholders (obviously they aren't all up at once; the icons on the left are for procs and raid cooldowns, the bars above my player frame is for my personal cooldowns), I used Fraggoji's WeakAuras for the raid debuffs on the target (right part), and used Theck's Prot priority/cooldown trackers in the middle. Not shown is my boss timers (which will go above the raid frames at the start and move to the gap in between the WA and the big actionbars), a small mouseover-only action bar with potions and healthstones just under the player unit frame, and Hermes (upper left corner of the screen):



    Overall I'm pretty happy with it, although the memory usage is a bit high with all the qualify of life addons, running around 90mb of memory.

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

    I'm especially loving the mage UI you linked a few pages ago, called "KaitAuras" or something. Is it one of the UI's you'll release the configs of + the addon folder?

    Are you talking about me? How am I a traitor exactly, lol? The other UI you are referring to is Kaitain's, not mine. :P

    That being said, I also want to get my hands on Kait's UI, (UPLOAD IT PLEASE!!), it looks pretty slick.

    I will flay your mind.

    I am assuming that Kaitain is the target of that comment, being alliance rather than horde as they assumed.

    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.
    I'm a mess of unfinished thoughts

    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.

    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.
