The idea is that you show your UI and describe the core addons from it. I think this might actually be usefull because while checking other people's UI, you can discover new ways of tracking important stuff that you didn't think about previously.
So I'll start.
It looks like this:
the config mode looks like this:
My entire UI is a lot of addons.
- pitbull - all the unit frames
- eePanels - those "pretty" panels (the bottom gradient thing, behind the action bars, the black rectangles under the unit frames just to serve as background for the numbers)
- Staggermeter - the stagger tracking in the middle
- quartz - cast bars
- eavesdrop - that "mini" combat log in under the minimap
- dominos - action bars
- classtimer - the buffs/debuffs bars on top of the player/target frames
- weak auras
it's 4 different groups at weak auras .. just "align" them manually in a pretty way.
elusive brew stack count/timer (those 15 squares and a thin line on top of them to tell you the duration, just so you can use it before they run out):
stagger warnings (the yellow and red runes around you)
KS warning (the funny beer mug in the middle)
desperate measures warning (the green flashing thingy on top):
Short buffs tracking (Zen sphere timer and guard, showing it's bar as a timer but the amount absorved as a number):
Chi tracker with ascendence (5 squares):
Chi tracker with power strikes/chi brew (4 squares):
this one is actually with chi brew, but to make a power strike version, just duplicate it and go on:
Load > Talent Selected > Tier 3 - 1
Btw, to import those, you copy that wall of code and use the import feature that weak auras have.
I think the main "different" thing I did is the method of "square tracking" buffs/resources. Which is an extremelly easy way to see how many charges or a particular resource you have, with a very quick look, without having to read numbers (when they are not relevant).
For example I did something similar to track my Tigereye brew stacks as windwalker:
and rage on my druid alt:
Since druids spend rage on 30-60 marks, I made "trios" of 10rage squares. This way, with a quick look, I know how much rage I'm at, and how far/close I am to use my skills.
Obviously you'd have to adapt those to each class, but overall I think they work great for many things.
