Shadow Priest UI Revisited

I gave everything a bit of a shuffle a couple weeks ago, mostly because I needed more help watching my Focus (Lich King) target’s cast bar (Defile) and who is being targeted (Me, or someone else in the raid). I switched to Shadowed Unit Frames. But changing my unit frames lead me to move a lot of other stuff around too. I thought it might be worth consolidating everything into a post.

The Evolution of My UI

Over the years I have played WoW my UI has changed. From using the standard interface, to dabbling with mods, I have slowly “evolved” to what I feel is a more sophisticated and user friendly interface for my game play. My biggest challenge has been mod customisation. I need things to be pretty user friendly after install otherwise it is all too much and I give up on the mod all together. I went through my screenshot folder today and have picked out pictures of my many UI attempts some of which are quite embarrassing but I’m going to share anyway!

Improving the Interface Using Addons 8 – Elkanos Buff Bars

Cass’s major UI overhaul inspired me to do the same. I will admit I kinda cheated and copied many of her ideas – just set them up with a healer flavour. One standard UI feature she didn’t make any changes to, but I felt needed improvement was a new way to layout any buffs and debuffs my character was experiencing.
