    Warlock UIs

    Ratskin Edit:
    Everyone's pretty good on the whole, but thought I'd add a couple of basic rules/instructions just to keep it that way.
    1) Please keep images small. Your image host will probably have some code which allows you to add pictures as thumbnails (best option, as it keeps filesize down), but if they don't you can manually change the image size like so: (300 is a resonable size, and we can right click to view actual)
    Code:
    [img width=300]http://www.image.url[/img]
    2) If you want it to link to the full image you can make it:
    3) Feel free to post comments or questions about UIs you see, though for certain questions you might be better off in the Interface & Macros Forum

    Cheers - Ratskinmahoney

    Gherkin Edit:

    Unless you have made significant changes to Tuk's UI or need help with something, please do not post your ui. We all know what it will look like. From this point forward (Page 67) people posting a basic Tuk's UI screenshot this will be randomly selected to try out one of the following Hello Kitty Adventure Island inspired UI's.

    ************************************

    So, i thought i'd start a topic regarding the warlock UI. Perhaps the wrong section to post it in, we do have a Interface & Macros section. But this is concerning warlocks, so i'll post it here.

    In this thread we'll take a look at different UI's and try to contribute with different addons to create the optimal warlock UI.

    The one i am using at this moment is this one; Self made.



    Screenshot taken in solomode, i'll update it later with a screenshot in raid.

    AddOn list:

    ag_Unitframes
    Bartender4
    Buffalo3
    Clearfont2 + Fontpack
    ForteXorcist
    MikScrollingBattleText. Disabled the selfmade damage.
    Omen
    Onebag
    Prat 3.0
    Quartz
    Recount
    Sexymap
    Buttonfacade

    I know that my Ui isn't the "cleanest" but it's functional, which is what i'm searching for.
    Looks < Functions


    ;~*UPDATE*~;

    I have ordered a 24'' monitor, and i'm buying a hdmi cabel, so i will be running 1920 x 1080 (i think?), which will give ALOT more space to make a new UI. The new screen arrives a day or two after the 15'th, and i want to request something from you guys.

    As i am going to construct a new UI around the 16'th-17'th, i want you guys to help me out adding some addons to it.

    Let's make a list, like the boss list one, in another thread.

    I'll start with adding those i HAVE to have to raid, plus one of the ones i want to add to make it look good.

    1. DBM (must have)
    2. Omen (Must have)
    3. Quartz.

    Your turn, could result in a good UI, if everyone helps out

    It's better than my UI, I think when I get home next week I'll mess around with my UI and make it clean and functional and then post some suggestions.

    @OP: Not a bad attempt. But, it's not what I'd use. The layout just seems off to me. But still, looks nice and clean enough. Definately interested in seeing the raid layout.

    Re: Warlock UIs

    No offense..but your UI is a clusterfuck of stuff. I can't stand anything but a semi-minimalist layout, which is by no means less functional than yours. There are a ton of potential layouts that are just as function but 3x as 'clean' as yours is presently.

    Half your screen is eaten up by addons...I'm at work presently, but I'll put up a screen shot of my UI and addons when i get home.

    Re: Warlock UIs

    I use a modified version of Ishtara's UI
    http://s.wowinterface.com/preview/pvw25522.jpg

    I added:
    nQuestLog to the top left corner
    Icon-based Elkano's Buff Bar to the top right corner
    I changed the font because I use 1400x900 windowed, and that font is hard to read.
    Modified the Combat log to be special channel/whispers
    Recount and Omen above the combat log spot
    Grid above the chat log spot.

    It is. I use the spell timer myself, but I find the cooldown bar to be too big and bulky. OmniCC ftw.

    @Jade: Nice. You might like kgPanels for some graphical tweaking - it lets you put custom art, backgrounds, and borders in your UI. Also, why Pitbull's raid frames over something like Grid?

    @Kevian: How do you manage with the HUD? I tried it and couldn't stand it.

    Well, first of all, i was trying to find the addon which gives your screen a square system, for more precise placement of Unitframes and castbars, but i couldn't find it.
    Second, i know i have alot of things in the lower areas of my screen, but i cba to have things spread out.

    Well, i got to have alot of bars for my spells, i am a warlock :P And as i said, this isn't the cleanest UI there is. I am very curious about your UI, please have a post up as soon as you can

    Hehe, oddly i've grown into it over the years..

    I actually tried recently to switch the hud off and have the player frame from ag_UntiFrames shown, oh man I was lost with it ^^ especially when I do some casual pvp from time to time, I really rather have the hud tbh.

    Even though i think your UI looks good, this is a thread for comparing warlock UI's and making the most functional for warlocks, not mages.

    Oh man, that UI is totally molded slowly in time, never actually thought I would make a downloadable package from it, I might post it if I get some time to get that sorted mate.
