Hello interwebz! I was working on some elaborate post but I took a brake to mess around with my new UI. I came along a post on WoWI. I wont link to the post.. since its pretty obvious and I found it on the front page, but I don’t wanna give any one at WoWI any greeph.. Besides.. I think they handled it quite nicely. So we will call the poster.. DephKnight and I’m at loss for words on his final paragraph:

“PLEASEEEEEE !! Someone do this, so sick of spamming several buttons and making decicions while in combat at the same time as I am supposed to read raid chat and answer and keeping track of healt/RP and what the boss does and what others do … As you can see it is an mission impossible for a human
to play a game that needs that much attention ..” – Def Knite

Like many other people at WoWI, I thought he was joking. In the post he was asking for a UI to act like a Bot. To basically do his rotation as a human would, while he did every thing else. It’s a shocking state to see this since well.. I do all those things with one hand behind my back and a sandwich in my mouth, while watching tv. Okay maybe not the Watching tv thing.. I tend to zone out when I do that. One replier did state it perfectly we will call him LeetMage

“I suggest turning off the TV shows. Stop trying to play your gaming console at the same time and just focus on your raid/group” – 1337|V|463

Thanks leet mage.. You rock!

Final UI and Big Fishes

22 08 2008

First of all, I would like to apologize for the lack of writing, I feel Meara has been doing a very good job, but I had some issues to deal with first and now that they’ve been dealt with temporarily, I’m back here.

Anyway, I left pending some final screenshot of my UI and a list/description of the addons I used. Before, and if you’re interested, here is the post that showed the first changes I made, that I also ended up not using after all, and here is my last post about the UI changes.

And now, this is how it looks and how it will look probably until Wrath comes around.

Final Version of UI

Final Version of UI

Ok, as you can see (if you’ve read the previous posts regarding this topic), there’s very little change from my last screenshot to the final version, mostly graphical changes and the addition of a chat addon. Lists after the break!.

UI Updates

6 08 2008

~ Akhellar’s crusade continues…

Ok, I’ve been working on the UI rebuild since my last post, primarily I scratched that one completely off and started again. Here it is, almost finished, still need it needs a bit more flashy, yet unobtrusive stuff.

While Out of Combat

While Out of Combat

While In Combat

While In Combat

These two are how it is looking right now, and as before, I’m still working on it. I will make one final post this friday with the list of the addons used and the finished UI. Right now I’m working on different Layouts for Pitbull and new uses for eePanels2, such as scripting and that.
How is it looking so far? I personally like the reduced UI clutter and the much improved visibility it is giving me. As you could probably see from the screenshots, I tested it in raids. The one out of combat was taken while waiting for the SSC to assemble. The one in combat was taken during the Moroes fight in Karazhan. Yes I am second in Damage Done, second to a mage!. I can has excuses tho!. WoW has been crashing quite a bit lately for me, even before and without the extensive Addonage, and also, curse those AoE groups!!.
Anyway QQ asides, I’m loving it. What do you think?

UI Changes and Addon Madness

4 08 2008

~ Akhellar’s crusade for a new UI

Alright, good day people. So every now and then, I decide to rebuild my whole UI (User Interface), changing completely my set of addons, with some exceptions such as Omen. This process usually takes about two or three weeks of shuffling addons in and out, switching addons around and doing all sorts of experiments.

This time I went with a new one, one that I hadn’t tried before even tho I had heard of it (read of it rather), eePanels 2. I’m liking it so far, only issue is, I’ve lost my “expertise” with Photoshop and all things graphic design (not touching PS or trying to design anything in the last 5 years might have something to do with it), so…I have to resort to searching for textures. Search that hasn’t been that successfull.

So I’ll post my UI as it is so far, and then I’ll update it…let’s say, mid-week, and then next sunday.

Anyway, here it is:


Out of Combat

More updates coming, but for now, that’s that.
