I used Elk's for a long time, but eventually figured that I liked to have icons for random gibberish and bars for debuffs.

I've since switched to Raven. It's got a pretty good configuration interface (powerful, but has a lot of sensible defaults/preconfigurations for grouping), and lets me have icons AND bars in one UI package.

And I don't have to constantly show/hide anchors to make edits to my Elk's bars anymore

So. Throwing that pitch out there.

I'll give Raven a look, thanks for the tip.

I think it must've been someone's attempt to make Satrina's not be a huge resource hog that requires a master's degree to configure. It's pretty successful.

Otherwise, I think my addon list looks nearly exactly like yours + VuhDo and some utilities like RaidBuffStatus and AutoCombatLogger.

Which, immer, if you don't have AutoCombatLogger, install it. It's a godsend: never forget to turn on logging in appropriate environments.

so, if I get time.. I'll try out ElvUI. But this works for me for now.

My eyes focus primarily on the space between the WeakAura icons that run across the feet of my toon and the Raid Frames along the bottom. The DBM bars fly into that space when something is about to go "boom". The stuff on the sides is there to catch my attention (peripheral vision) if I'm looking for an answer to a problem (dmg/heal meter, buffs/debuffs TipTac). I like to have all of the info there... but not all of it needs to be in the center, if you know what I mean.

With your setup, I cannot stress enough that the use of a viewport addon will make your life way easier. The only change I would make is to cover the area where raid frames/dbm bars/chat window/action bars are with a viewport panel. It will resize your viewport (the actual area you can really see) so that the area that is covered by these UI elements is not covering your view of the battlefield, so to speak.

Yeah, I noticed you used Sunn Viewport Art. I'll look into it when I can find time.... as well as ElvUI. Thanks, T.

Would viewport help with accidental targeting if you miss click something down on your bars?

Sometimes I will click slightly between my buttons and end up targeting so mob or ally behind me. If I could block this area from clicks that would be great.

well, one thing we did for Skylara was completely eliminate padding from her action bars. There is no space between buttons on her UI. She might misfire an ability, but she won't lose a target! lol.

Yes, as the art covering the viewport can be made noninteractive (meaning it doesn't respond to mouse clicks).

As you can see from the screenshots, the right one is hiding a significant amount of area that the left one does not.

Every time I come by this thread I get sad because my UI is still stock. I healed through Cata with no issue using Blizzard's standard raid frames, but the hotkey UI is still atrocious.

I think I have:

DBM
GTFO
Recount
Omen
_NPCscan
PVPsound
Reforgenator

Nothing UI-related. Yet.

I would love to sit down and take the time to get FatBoss's set-up right, i love his combat text and how it flows around crosshairs that look like they're ripped from Mass Effect.

from which toon? he's got a few and in their 25man videos it looks like they mix together 2 or 3 different recordings from different points of view.

oh well. It's a FatBoss video of how he set up his UI for DS and it looks like it is the same he used for their first MV 10m videos.

Using Xpearl but it is kinda like using the ole Zach Morris Cell phone today, when u could use something that is not so antiquated.
