Also, I don't actually think the last one is very good, myself, but it is the most viewed post on the blog, so I guess others like it.
    These are all extremely cool, I'm a fan of minimalism, especially with pixel fonts and these are just super awesome. Makes me kinda sad that you only post the addons you used and not the actual UI because sometimes recreating a work of art is near impossible! Really good work

    Looks awesome actually. Really like it.

    This. I was addicted to pixel fonts in so many of my UI projects, but I've found some REALLY clean sans serif fonts and such and it just feels better. With all the Weak Auras and random stuff I need to track with Heroic Raiding, I found pixel fonts less ideal for me to use on my UI's. I still appreciate great design, though. Just not for me at this point.
    Thanks to Duskmoon for the awesome Sig/Avatar/Banner!

    Comments are more than welcome (make sure to check some dungeon action around 1 minute into the vid)!!

    I really like it! 2 questions though:
    1. What happens when/if you do 25 mands raids? Raid finder for instance.
    2. Im a right, when I say you dont have any unitframes? If you do, where are they located?

    Much appreciated.

    Hey there!!

    1. Basically I have two different vuhdo layouts. First is for solo to 10man and the second one is for 11 to 25. The correct layout is loaded automatically based on the number of people you're grouped with.
    The downside is I sometimes have to move the weakauras bar... but at least I designed it so that 15 people (in the second layout) takes the exact same space as 10 (in the first layout) so I don't have to move the cooldowns frame around when I get into a 15man BG...
    EDIT - found a screenshot of 20man Flex



    2. They're not your everyday unitframes in that they only display very little information, can't be clicked and are displayed through weak-auras but technically I do :
    - The player unitframe is reduced to the mana bar
    - The target unitframe is the text you can see top left of the vudho frames. It displays the name of your target as well as its % of remaining health in case its below 100% (big up to Touchy who's wa string I stole - from his tank UI - for the colored health display).
    Its very minimal but in the end I don't think you need anything else as a PVE healer.
    Might add proper boss frames at some point if I'm not happy with DBM's... in the spirit of what I had done previously

    Looks great, frantik! I've been looking for something similar to this for some time. I am currently using Skullflower's edit of ElvUI, which is somewhat similar. What addon are you using to create the chatframe panel? - if you don't mind me asking :-)

    I use KGPanels to do the chat and skada backgrounds. I would really like for there to be an option in ElvUI that let's you use the chat backdrops without the "tab bar" on top, but alas there is none and I had to use another addon to do that

    Thanks! I will probably be including my SavedVariables folder with future posts, since I've found a convenient way of doing that now.

    The placement of the bars on the right (cooldowns, I assume) seems a little arbitrary - are they lined up with anything, horizontally or vertically? Could they be? Same with the tooltip.

    If http://i.imgur.com/46RhGFl.png is your own castbar, do you need the text on it? I usually have it disabled on account of that I know what I'm casting, and if you disabled the text you could move those icons down a bit. Are those icons cooldowns, too, by the way? How many groups of cooldown timers do you have?
    Come on, die young.

    If you're feeling brave you can try the latest BW alpha which has the Elv style without the requirement of having ElvUI or the skinning addon. It took me a few hours digging into the ElvUI code but I'm hoping the style looks exact same as the one provided by the skinning addon, whether the user is using Elv or not. The style in BW will overwrite the style provided by the Elv skinning addon so it's important it looks the same.

    The bars on the right were bigwigs test bars just to show placement, I wasnt sure where to put the big bars
    I like having the name of the spell im casting on my cast bar

    Hey guys; could use some critiques on my current UI. It's mostly just ElvUI + lots of Weakauras. Trying to be as minimalist as a tank can be

    I was doing it while thinking to some other UI so it's not 100% original but I'm pretty happy with what I did.

    Out of combat :


    In combat :
    Oh my gawd, I love that the font just pops out like that! Could you pretty please tell me what addons you used?

    EDIT: I just started playing WoW again and currently leveling a undead warlock! I would love to have ideas about UI packs or so! I kinda want it to be ''dark-ish'' but not so whack'd with addons, you know keeping it abit roleplay-ish haha!

    Thanks mina!

    You can do that with ElvUI, in chat config you can hide the tab bar (and if you can't with default ElvUI, try with the Shadow & Light addon of Elvui)

    You definitely can in default, I always have mine hidden.
    Chat options on the first page is where to look.

    I'm pretty sure this just hides the background on the tab bar. The tabs themselves are still visible, unless this was changed in the last revision. I'm not at home so I can't actually check but when I tried it this is how it behaves. Personally, I'd have the tab bar hidden at all times unless you mouseover the chat window, which I imagine could be done in the lua.

    In honor of Care's return to WoW, I have been inspired to post the progress of my total rip-off of his UI.

    Comments and criticism welcome.

    Just standard ElvUI. Remade UI to fit 10H since I'm no longer 25H =/.

    There's never that many boss debuff weakauras at once, just showing where they would extend to if there were. And the emphasized bars will only show at most 2-3 of the abilities I emphasize.

    Still got a ways to go, need to find a place for omen and it's kinda hard to find a good place for it.

    Is there any chance you will upload it? Or can U at least SS addon folder?

    EDIT: (since I just cant reply coz of limitations)

    Thank you so much! I'll test it ASAP
