**This UI should work for most of the wide resolutions -- some minor tweaking might be necessary if your resolution is very different from mine, though.**
See the last image for a list of all the addons included in the package.
Most of the addons are accessible through the interface options menu. The ones you cannot get to from there are as follows:
SL Data Text - /sldt
Shadow Unit Frames - /suf
Bartender 4 - /bt
Deadly Boss Mods - /dbm
Grid - /grid
WoW Instant Messenger - /wim
Weak Auras - /wa
Raven - /raven
TipTac - /tiptac
List of everything with brief descriptions:
Bagnon - combine all your bags into one, see what your other characters have in their bags/bank.
Balance Power Tracker - eclipse energy bar
Bartender4 - action bars
Chinchilla - minimap
Clique - binds spells to mouse clicks (I use it for thorns, MotW and a couple other things)
DBM - boss encounter timers
Grid - raid unit frames
MapCoords - puts coordinates on the big map
Masque - Makes icons look prettier
Mik Scrolling Battle Text - scrolling combat text I show blizz default outgoing damage/heals so make sure you have that turned on in your blizz options if you want to see yellow damage on your screen.
Move Anything - lets you, well... move anything.
OmniCC - puts numerical timers on your action bars/buffs/debuffs
Prat - chat box mod
Quartz - casting bar and proc tracker
Raven - Buff/debuff tracker. All the icons, bars and the CD timer are this addon.
Shadowed Unit Frames - Unit frames
Skada - damage and threat meter
SL Data Text - shows various information -- I just use it for the clock, durability, and location/coords on my minimap.
Tidyplates - enemy health plates with buffs/debuffs
TipTac - tooltip mod
WeakAuras - Pretty auras and 3D images that help warn about CDs and spell timers.
WIM - makes whispers look look instant messenger. Very nice for keeping tracking of tells.
Addons I use but are not included in this package:
Altoholoic - because I am one, and this addon makes managing them easy (see professions, gear, bank, etc of all alts)
Atlas Loot - see what loot drops where
Fortress - puts buttons for addons anywhere on your screen (for easy access as an alternative to minimap buttons)
Gatherer - gathering profession helper addon.
Outfitter - change quickly between outfits.
Downloading and Installing
Tankspot.com has a guide on how to download a UI compilation, so if you're not sure what to do, I highly recommend checking it out.
But always make sure you make a backup of your current interface and WTF folders before you do ANYTHING!
The ICONS folder under Interface is a bunch of cleaned up icon files. It's not an addon, but it will make the icons in-game look cleaner (and it works for buff/debuffs, items and addons like power auras, too). If you prefer the old school rounded-edge look of icons, you can delete that folder.
My macro and keybinding files are NOT included. If you'd like to keep your old keybinds and macros you can just import your bindings-cache.wtf and macros-cache.txt files from your old WTF folder to the new one. There are 2 copies of each file, one under World of Warcraft > WTF > YOUR ACCOUNT NAME and another one under World of Warcraft > WTF > YOUR ACCOUNT NAME > Your Server Name > Your Character Name. You need to copy both versions of each file and put them in the proper location to make sure you keep your bindings and macros.
One UI-related macro that you should copy over is used to show/hide the action bar that has archaeology and fishing on it.
/script if i==(nil or 0) then BT4Bar10:Hide() i=1 else BT4Bar10:Show() i=0 end
