**A note on dates. Dates are pretty important, but we have no idea how Silvermoon reckons time, so I’ve used the WoWWiki Unofficial Timeline dates for most of it. As such, all years are measured with the beginning of the First War as “Year 0” even though that makes fuckall sense for Blood Elves. You […]

UI Issues
comment 2 Written by on February 17, 2008 – 5:59 pm

So, I’ve been looking at all these “Post your UI” threads on various warcraft forums lately, and I’ve come to have UI envy. I was introduced to warcraft by a guy that wrote addons, so I’ve never used the default UI for longer than it took me to get things working again after a patch. But… I’m also a healer – and very forgetful. People have UIs that have two buttons on them. Warlocks and Mages have Necrosis/Cryolysis – spiffy little circular mods that do just about everything. Rogues have one giant button and three little buttons next to it.


So this is my shaman’s raiding UI. It’s cluttered. Shiny. Flashy. It shows little or no resemblance to the standard Blizzard UI. I’m tempted to go on an addon purge, and go back to something more like what the original game came with, with more minor modifications… but I’m so used to having things where they are, I’m not sure I could function.

  1. You are not alone.

    I have 165 addons in my default pve set. 165! WTF! *sigh*

  2. I know the feeling. I try so hard to go through and purge my add-ons every now and then. I make it a point to only use mods I can through the WoWAce Updater just to make my life a little simpler, UI-wise.

    You might want to check out Sphere (http://www.wowace.com/wiki/Sphere) as it was designed to give the rest of us a handy Necrosis-like mod. I used to run a buff mod similar to yours, than I fogured “Hey, I know all these icons already” and now just use Buffalo to move the standard buffs and debuffs around.
