It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

I was digging around, thanks to a few comments on Twitter, for the first content patch that happened after I started playing WoW.  Turns out, that was patch 1.5, when battlegrounds and the honor system were released, Thorim Point and Revantusk were new questing areas… and when they introduced the “if you die and use the spirit healer to resurrect, you leave a skeleton behind on the ground” graphic.

It was also the patch where they implemented the ability to target  a player by clicking on their raid frame.

Which got me to thinking about CTRA, and the old addons we used to use to be able to raid successfully.  I was introduced to the game by someone that did a lot with addons, so I’ve never really played with a “fully standard” UI.  Digging through my screenshot folder produced my old raiding UI – the one I used as a hunter and then as a priest in Molten Core/BWL/Onyxia.

And so, for your lols, I thought I’d share it.  At the time I was running with a 17” flat panel monitor (not my current widescreen). Don’t laugh too hard!

  1. But… that looks like a perfectly servicable UI…


    Crap, I think I just labeled myself.

  2. @Verdus –

    Actually, it /is/ a perfectly servicable UI. In fact, the major changes that I’ve made over the last four (eep) years was a swap to Grid, moving everything inline on the bottom (widescreen monitor WOO), and moving my character/target bars down. But overall, it’s quite functional.

  3. God I miss that raid.

    I know it ended badly, but for me, honestly, while it was good…probably the most fun I’ve had in WoW.

  4. @Lili – It /was/ fun – I miss being a huntard in raids sometimes. And honestly, as much as people bitch about MC, it was a fun instance when you were learning it. Luna and An need to get together and RP sometime about it – could be fun 😀

    That and, to this day, we tell people to Loot the F-ing Dogs (even when they’re not even remotely dog like. see: freya’s flowers). Makes me giggle.

    I need to dig up one of my old hard drives – I know there is a shot of Opal with under 6k mana before a Rags fight.

  6. I’m pretty sure one of the addons up at the top is tracking my DPS? And I’m pretty sure it’s the one that says 216. GO ME!

  7. I think the best part is the /wave /tickle /hug /poke buttons 😀

  8. Right, I feel silly now… cause that is basically what my UI looks like when raiding slightly newer places, like Trial of the Grand Crusader. Why should we laugh, again? :S

  9. @Thelize – mostly for my 216 DPS on a Molten Giant in a 40 man raid. >.> And at the Bad Old Days of CTRA. As a general UI it’s not too bad 🙂
