BlkUI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.3B
by: Blacksad [More]

RESOLUTION: 1920X1080

A sleek looking, minimalist, all purpose Rogue UI.

Everything is set to track buffs/debuffs/procs/CD times in PvE and should require next to no setup.

Although this is set up to be Rogue specific, you can simply use any character class.

For PvP target defensive cooldowns are tracked via Weakauras, and personal CC abilities via icons above nameplates.

Let me know if you have any questions.


(Ctrl click Skada button to reset data)

__________________________________________________________________________________________
Directions:

The person who downloads this has to unpack everything using an application which can unzip folders (Winzip, etc.), and then put all the folders in his / her World of Warcraft folder.

Copy your current WTF/Interface folders to your desktop to back them up before installing.

You then place the downloaded WTF/Interface folders into your Wow directory in their place.

When you download this, edit the folders to rename them from the generic "Account Name", "Server", "Character" to your actual accountname - the same goes for the server- and characternames. Do this first, before you even load up the game. Otherwise, the settings for everything will not take, and you may have to do it over to get everything working properly.

Upon entering game, make sure all addons are enabled! Make sure "Load out of date Addons" is checked!!!

Once loaded with all addons enabled, you will get a pop-up asking if you want to install BlkUI. Choose "Yes", and you should be pretty much good to go.

If any profiles for specific addons have issue loading, you may choose the Blk_UI profile for said addon.

You can then copy your bindings-cache.wtf and macros-cache.txt in from your backed up desktop folders, and keep your previous macros/keybindings.

Don't update Sharedmedia or Sharedmedia: Additional Fonts, as they it will overwrite the in-game font settings.


__________________________________________________________________________________________

Addons Included:

Aurora, Bagnon, Bartender, Gnosis, Raven, Fonter, VuhDo, HideBossFrame, HideRaidFrame, Stuf Unit Frames, Reflux, SharedMedia, WeakAuras, Phanxchat, SexyMap, Skada, KgPanels, Tidyplates, Tiptac, DBM, HideBlizzardRaidFrame, Rogue Spam Reborn.
__________________________________________________________________________________________
Changed loader to work correctly. (Thanks to Real of RealUI!)

Added in the option to toggle most of the UI on/off at will.

Redid boss frames to look better and have a castbar.

Lots of odds and ends.

Energy bars

This may be a dumb question... but everything seems so dark... how can i make the energy bar and timers more opaque? Really would like to make this work for me but I have trouble seeing the valuable information for combat. Hate to try and see how i perform in a raid.

So far this is awesome! Jut a few questions/comments.

Can I set up the combo point tracker to track Maelstrom Weapon stacks?
What did you use for the Energy Bar and can I set it up to show other power bars (Focus, Mana, etc)

I love this UI for my Rogue and my Feral Druid. Wanna get it set up for my Shammy too now

Iji, I've done that same thing with monk Chi by simply going into weak auras (/wa) and copying the combo point auras and going in and changing the activation from combo points to chi. I did the same with a warrior rage bar by also copying the energy bar and changing the tracked energy to rage. If you right click, say, combo point 1 and select duplicate (name it something else immediately) then go into load and change the energy type it will work just the same, only with another type.

Also, if you're running a monk, it's worth updating ForteXorcist by hand to get your bars to show up in between the player and target frames.

My question has to do with vuhdo. Is there a way to get the party frames to show icons for leader/tank/healer/dps? Right now I have them reordered so that the tank is always first, healer second, and dps last, but I'd like a tiny icon on top so I don't have that moment of thought. I hate thinking

Still a great UI. I'm hoping when it updates that I won't lose all my settings that I've made for the monk and warrior. Thanks!

Thanks for helping out!

Most of the updates are through Weakauras, which I will put on a seperate Download for users which already have the main package. I've also switched the buff/debuff icons to Bison, because I was having a difficult time seeing debuffs I needed to know about at that location on the screen. Update coming this week.

I just want to say thank you for this UI. I'm really new to using addons, and changing around my UI. I've got a question on how to remove the deal that looks like a hud like icehud or something. I'm not sure what addon is making this show up and can't seem to find it in my settings. Also, Blade Furry is just staying up on my screen constantly with Bison. I appologize for the questions, and if needed I could send a screen shot since I really do not know exact names etc of whats what on the UI.

Thanks a ton and keep up the good work.

Okay, so how can I put in your recent revisions without losing my WA's and things that I've set up myself?

A friendly critique and request for tips.

I'd like to start by saying I absolutely love this ui. It's very sexy and I really like the combo point setup (with anticipation charges!) in particular. I'd really love to keep it.

With that in mind, there are also a few things missing from the ui, and while I know it's supposed to be simplistic in design, these missing features can make certain situations complicated. Since I've gotten it set up I have refused to lead any groups or raids because I'm afraid I'll miss something important that is hidden from me that wasn't previously. If you have any suggestions on how to fix these issues, please, please help me out here.


Aggro: I noticed there is no real way for me to know when I have aggro, besides finding that my target has targeted me and a sudden and unfortunate reduction in health. I usually prefer to drop my aggro before I start taking heavy hits; is it possible to set up some sort of warning or sound effect to show that I'm the recipient of boss aggro?

In Combat / Out of Combat: While I AM a rogue, it is simple to know if I'm in combat because I can stealth if I'm not. This is more out of concern for my alts, who will also be using this ui. It makes me feel like a fool when I think the fight's over while my buddies are still being beaten to a pulp 20 yards away. ^ Edit: Just found the little combat icon for this one. It's a little non-obvious, but I think I can manage.

Tagged Targets: This didn't become a real issue until just the other day. Alliance and Horde were compiling raids at the same time and fighting over the right to down Galleon. When our turn started, I actually had to ask someone if the alliance had tagged the boss and whether or not I should be attacking. It was embarrassing.

Flagged for PvP: I'm on a pve server, and sometimes it's really nice to know if I'm flagged or not. Sometimes it happens on accident during situations like the one I described above.

25 man Raid / Raid Roles: This ui is just fine with 10 man raids in mind. Unfortunately, I'm often in 25 man raids in both lfr and regular. I've briefly tried tinkering with the raid frames, but I would like someone's advice on this. Also, it can be a pain to find the tank to set my focus in a random group. I have to click on each individual person to see which role they're in, and there is no fast way to tell how many dps/heals/tanks there are in a group.

Buffs / Debuffs on Target: I will shamelessly admit that I would like to see my targets buffs because I like to verify that my group members are doing what they are supposed to be doing. :P Also, I haven't brought this ui into pvp yet, but I have a feeling I will REALLY want this feature at that point.

Self Buffs: This one isn't as important, and is more of a critique. With the first patch of mop blizzard implemented a buff tracker. It would determine the number of buffs available to a raid and display the number of buffs present. The tracker is, of course, disabled with this ui setup. This is a tool that would be useful while leading any raids or groups in the future.

Tooltips: Another less important feature, which can be bypassed with proper research. The lack of tooltips for abilities only bugged me just today when I tried out the new lfr. When I was turned into a construct on one of the bosses, I was unable to see tooltips for the different abilities. Luckily, before the fight someone had explained exactly what each button did. If there is a simple setting I can turn on somewhere to enable tooltips, I'd appreciate the info.

Health Percentages: Mechanics often make it important to know the exact percentage a boss's health is. Is there some setting somewhere that'll let me change the exact amount (say: 368k) to a percentage?


Sorry, I didn't mean to recite the whole phonebook to you, but like I said, I really love this ui and I'd like to keep it. I managed to put a bandaid on a couple of these problems with tidyplates, but during boss fights the health plates are often out of my field of vision. In advance I appreciate any tips you might give for these issues. There is a good chance there are other issues that I simply can't recall at this time, but I certainly hope not.

Hey Keljiran, thanks for the feedback!

Aggro can be set by simply opening up pitbull and turning on the aggro warning. It can be set to show a glowing border when you have aggro on anything, or are being targeted in PvP. A threat bar can also be turned on, or any number of options.

As you stated, the in Combat/ooc "status" icon is on the bottom left of the frame. You can always move or resize this in Pitbull to your personal needs.

Tagged targets have a Red targeting reticule, and grey if not tagged by default.

PvP icon appears on the player bar on the mid right when applicable. This can be resized/moved in Pitbull to suit your personal tastes.

The 25 man Raid role icons can be turned on via Vudhoo if so desired. I don't really care what peoples roles are in LFR, and I know what they are in my normal raid group, so I have them turned off to remove clutter. Again, this is easily changed in Vuhdoo options.

For Debuffs, you can set Bison to show all target debuffs if you so desire, and choose where to place them, as well as how to size them. This can also be done via Pitbull if you choose under options.

I do have default debuff tracker off, which can be turned on at will, and will show up like normal. For any sort of Raid Leading, I'd suggest Phoenixstyle or Buffwatch, etc for a more in depth addon though.

Tooltips for bars can be turned on in a checkbox in the bartender window.

Health numbers can be easily changed in Pitbull. Type /pitbull, go to Texts, and choose Lua texts. Pick LUA health, and there is a drop down menu which lets you choose how health appears. You can choose %, current/total, and about 10 other options to suit your needs.

What am i missing? Clearly i've done something wrong

I guess i need it to be explained to me as i am a 4 year old

So if anyone could help me with this i'd be most greatful

I doubt there's anything wrong on your part its just me that is doing something wrong when i am installing, but i am unable to figure out exactly where i am going wrong.

I use Elvui at the moment and i like it a lot, i very much doubt that that has anything to do with me being unable to install your layout.

Because took my old WTF and interface folder out of the wow directory,(backed it up under another name in another directory) and replaced it with and renamed the different folders within your WTF folder accountname ,servername and charactername to mine. And replaced the interface folder with yours aswell .

And it looks normal within the folders, but i cant log in to the game

I appreciate the quick response

The regular combo points are just the icons. When they light up pink, that's when the Rogue has anticipation charges saved. They basically let a Rogue store 10 combo points.

If you want your holy power charges this color, just go to the display in Weakauras for each Holy Power, and change the color to pink.
