Improved Blizzard UI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.3.6
by: kaytotes [More]

Known issues can be tracked / submitted HERE.

Improved Blizzard UI is an attempt to improve the World of Warcraft interface by styling frames, implementing additional functionality and restructuring / hiding existing elements.

This has been customized to out of the box be how I personally like my UI set up however there is extensive configuration available in game by using the Escape -> Interface -> Addons menu. This interface is primarily tested at 2560x1400 but should largely work at any resolution.

BfA Update

  • World Map Co-ords
  • World Map Dungeon Icons
  • Action Bar Squish / Stack

not sure what happened, but its doing it again with the pet bar on my DK. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the addon, removed the local layout file and only have this addon activated and still the 2 bars are overlapping and the pet bar is completely broken meaning I cant click anything on it.

edit: just noticed that if I dismiss the pet and resummon the oet bar snt coming back unless I do a /reload, but sadly still overlaps it. Again only with your addon active.

Just wanted to point out that I believe it was fine until either during or right after doing the quest "And justice for Thrall" in Nagrand. Not sure if it broke just before or during the cutscene with Thrall/Garrosh. Not sure if it makes a difference, just letting you know when it happened.

adding more info: I have another DK on a different server that is level 84. I loaded into my main DK that just finished Nagrand and the pet bar is broken. Log out of him and over to my 84 DK and the pet bar is fine. Something changed after that Nagrand sequence would be my guess, but no clue what or why.

Not sure what happened, but something changed from 15c to 15d with the bars. My DKs stance bar is being overlapped by the pet bar now. I completely disabled all addons and just used this one and works fine in 15c, but removing 15c and putting in 15d is causing the pet and stance bars to overlap now. I am using the blizzimpbars.lua from 15c with the rest of 15d and so far so good.

I forgot to grab a pic for you, but can grab 15d and grab a screenshot of the UI to show if needed.

I'm glad you enjoy it! It's doubtful that I will adjust the HP and MP like that because I intend on keeping them as default as possible. Also because the PlayerFrame is protected as hell. I've been tinkering with my own oUF layout but its far, far from public ready.
