UI Feedback Thread

Post screenshots of your UI here, and people can (hopefully!) give you helpful suggestions on what they do/don't like, and how you could make it better! Please keep the posts to fairly large consecutive changes, reposting for every little change you make to the same UI could get tedious


Seerah, feel free to edit this first post to something more official/formal if you wish.

I'll start it off! Something I threw together, what do you think? Runic Power is directly behind runes, as you can see in the group shot

Ignore the random minimap icon, I was fiddling with an addon xD

Woot feedback thread!

Ok I know I already put this in the SS thread but, I'm looking for some suggestions for my buffs for this UI.



I'm just not happy with them..the debuffs in the center are fine, but the actual buff frame just bugs me, and I haven't found anything I'm with to replace it.

It looks good, Game! I'm happy to see that you have made good use of Align, as your older pictures sometimes made my OCD flare up :P One thing: why is the texture on your castbars different from your unitframes? Also, do your damage meters expand all the way to the bottom level of your UI?

Well, I use Satrina Buff Frames, which is not going to be updated any more (sadly ) As far as buff layout goes, it's always been tricky to figure out for vertical HP bars... the place you have them seems alright-ish. I would suggest filtering out your long-term buffs and putting them somewhere out of sight (sich as in the upper right corner, or something), and then putting only your procs and cooldowns in the place where your buffs are right now. Just a thought

I like the runic power behind the runes looks clean. I think I might have gone with red for the RP though, but that's just me.

Thanks I tried a whole bunch of different colors, and they were all too distracting and stuff =/ I use that bar pretty much only to check how much I have total, pretty much just for Lichborne and DRW. I'm gonna keep looking for a good color, though

Capity UI 1.0 rate, comment and feeback! :)



I wanted to make a simple yet functioning arena based UI. I wanted to keep the "RP" feeling by borrowing some textures from RothUI, which is amazing but the other addons doesn't suit my play style.

I made gladius and my party frames match, just for the looks. Kind of gets the commented arena matches style were they are identical to keep track of whats going on for the spectator.

Reason for the big portrait in the middle showing the class of the target is to make it easier getting the right target in the arena, and also make me able to play without classcolord bars (i hate those:P).

Comment and give some feedback. May upload if anyone wants it.

Looks very nice. Maybe add the texture to the actionbars also. What is that bar in the bottom right corner, a tank frame?

But what about:
- Raid frames? (I know you said its a Arena based UI, but if you are going to let people download it there should be some Raid frames also.)
- Nameplates?
- Buffs/debuffs?

I have no put much effort in the raid frames tbh. Still a work in progress.
the bar in the bottom right corner is actually a dmg meter. It's not supposed to show outside of raids.

Ah you are using the Roth UI nameplates. Great UI but the nameplates are to big for my taste.

What do you think of my layout?

I'm designing a new interface, and I'm looking for some C&C on it. I threw this together in photoshop, so try and picture it without all the white backgrounds and stuff.

Also, i just grabbed a random pic from google images for the background so you can see where everything is in relation to the play screen.

Let me know what you think!
