for you bros that keep asking to help with yours. Uis are pretty personal things, no two Uis will be the same but I kinda want this to be like a starting point for you bros to get your Uis going.

Addons you better use if you're not a FeegMilkglass
(its for butts)
Thats a good number off Addons I suppose, if you don't feel comfortable using all those at the same time or don't think you need to uses some of them thats fine. Start slow, Changing your entire UI in a day can take some getting used to so if you just want to ease yourself in then by all means be a babbie.
HOW I MINE FOR ADDON?!?!
Here I'll tell you how I set up my various Addons just as kind of a reference, If you don't like the way I Set my stuff you can change it to your liking or send a complaint to mirren. I'll also put picture I guess.Bagnon
: just Set it and forget it. It also lets you see whats in the bags of all your characters just by selecting the little portrait of yourself in the corner and switching to another toon.
: Add a border to your buttons. Make it so you do have a border. Do what ever you feel is right with your bars. No real set up need, just find the button facade menu in your addons panel and choose which on you want
: I love classtimer, not only does it show any buff or debuff you want on your target, it also does the same for you, your pet, and your focus! I set mine to be just above my bars, and make them stack up in stead of down. To add buffs or debuffs to tracking just go into timers-->extra--> then add the spell you want.
: lets you easily bind stuff to keys or key combos or mouse buttons or key and mouse button combos. The possibilities are endless! Setting your binds is straight forward and clique even has a little tutorial.Docsdebugrunes
: awesome for Dks compact addon that tell you all you need to know bout DK stuff like rune cooldowns duration of the infusion buff on your ghoul, size of the next blood shield if you choose to deathstrike after a hit. Its awesomeDominos
: I love dominos, perhaps my favorite addon, you can do pretty much anything you can think of with your bars and its easy to use.
Here is my set up You might not like they way I have my bars set but this is just an example.
Action Bar 1
Action Bar 2
Same as above
Action Bar 3
Action Bar 4
Same as 3
Bars 6-10 are unused for but you can do with them what you will
These are numbers are scaled to my monitor so they might be a little different then what you desire but you can fiddle with them till they are right.Elkanos Buff Bars
: My preferred replacement for the blizzard buff icon. Pretty straightforward set up. Just drag it yo where ever you desire, you can add or remove buffs that you want to track through the options menu
: Grid is awesome, I use it as a party/raid frames replacement but its also invaluable for telling who has aggro, who's dying, Who's dead, incoming heals, who has what debuff and a bunch of other junk. Setting up grid is an adventure in and of itself but thats more for healers and I assume they already know what to do. The base version of Grid works just fine as a party/raidframe. Set up can be a bit daunting just because of the sheer number of menus and sub menus but its pretty simple to set up once you get past them.
: Aggro meter. Useful for tanks and DPS who don't want to pull aggro and die like chumps (Revash). Pretty much set and forget unless you want to tweak the visuals. I personally have it set to transparent along with recount.Recount
: Dps meter to show how bad you are, why are you so bad, do 2k more dps.
: Map mod lets you put all kinds of pretty borders and shit around your map. Also allows you to move it away from the top corner postion. I use the simple square preset because I don't like a lot of bullshit around my map. Maps are serious goddamn business and anyone who tells you otherwise is a communist sympathizer
: This is a replacement for the regular menu bar, the one that shows your latency and all that other junk you hardly ever look at. To get to the config for this you have to type /sldt.
Tidy Plates and Tidy Plates: Threat Plates: the semicoloning pt 2 race to shoe mountain
: Name plate mod that rules. They aren't as useless as the blizzard ones. They show who has aggro on what how much aggro, cast bars and other life saving tips.ToolTip on mouse
: it puts the tool tips on your cursor.Deadly boss mods
l: A UnitFrame mod that lets you change and move all the unit frames ever. I have mine set to not show party or raid frames because I use Grid for that. To navigate to the config menu just type /xperl and away you go.
Once you set up all your addons and stuff you might have a cool UI like this or a horrible abomination, Who knows?
If I missed something let me know, or if you need help or something.
And I am on the list for presumably the exact same reason.
I just remembered that I hadn't hit up DMF for my last 5 skill points in alchemy. I was going to this weekend but then I was busy and had internet troubs.
So relevant to that, if anybody needs potions of prolonged power I'll have a ton for you tomorrow cause probably have to shit out 200 of them for the last 5 points.
Just ask, i wont charge.
do I want to wager $15 that I will be a sufficient contributor to mythic EN to not get cut or just fuck off until nighthold comes out in half a year or whatever the fuck it's going to be
I mean, I'm all for saving materials if you wanna cod some to expand. I'd rather pay you something for them since its not that I can't make em I just wanna conserve my blood stash
Haven't played in a bit, and I resubbed to make sure the Barrens is still one zone.
Can't wait to meet Arthas, the Lich King some day.
How much Fire Res do I need for MC again?
Gonna go farm Larval Acid for my Hide of the Wild now.
Need some extra bags if you have any. Running out of space to hold ammo for my gun.
Quoting this from the last thread, but I'm going to give this a strong agree.
Angry, you beating me in the logs is proooobably the main reason why I want to establish a second Mythic+ group.
To keep up with you in gear and really be able to compete with you, you jerk.
speaking of which I have a court 7 keystone if anyone wants to tonight, but raging/necrotic sounds poopy
Between work and class, my schedule has been completely airtight as of late.
that's monty farts
not acceptable, video games come before personal life or you aren't hardcore enough
(it's fine dude, this time of year is always hectic)
Correction, had to shit out about 500.
i mean, yes? that has always been the point right? keep playing to keep getting better gear?
getting perfectly itemized gear has always been a combination of playing a lot + luck. now, the legendary system (and titanforging) adds a whole new layer of stupid RNG bullshit i agree, but you've come a long way in a pretty short amount of time.
warcraftlogs is more of a rough estimate of dps capability because a lot of logs are going to be skewed by the lucky (whether they were lucky with legendaries, titanforges, or procs, or a combination of all) and the robots. by robots i mean the people who have been playing a class for a century and/or have superhuman ability to manage their rotation and cooldowns and what have you. those are also the sorts of people to always have the most expensive enchants and gems etc. as much as i love doing the damages even i still have a cheaper ring and cloak enchant on.
*Extremely huntera voice* Hurting the raaaaaaid
I think raging only becomes terrible after fortified. Having trash that one shots anyone that isn't a tank with just about any ability and 2 shots tanks is gross.
On the plus side it makes necrotic way less daunting!
I'll be home in 4-5 hours if there is a late crew that needs m+ healing (or whatever, I can probably tank anything below 10 at this point).
just for the record it is:
2x Sephuz's Secret
1x Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus
1x The Shadow Hunter's Voodoo Mask
1x Tak'theritrix's Shoulderpads
and that other people have gotten a plethora of actually good legendaries in a much shorter time span tells me that it's still a shitty, demoralizing system
No chest for me this week.
But really I look at gear in a much differently way, where it's nice to have and obviously helps performance but in general I just want to play the game with my pals from the last decade. The gear helps make that easier but totally isn't 100% required.
The time to get another legendary from your first is on average doubled. And then second to third is doubled again, and so on.
So Zay having multiple legendaries across multiple characters actually isnt indicative of a high drop rate. He has 3 + 1 + 1 rather than 5 on 1 character if that makes sense.
Somebody cranked the math on it, and it turns out if you have 4 legendaries atm, and dont have any good ones for your class, it would actually be faster to just make a new character, and take the shot at going 1/8 rather than grinding out the bajillion dungeons it would take for your next 1/4
In theory, more difficult = higher chance.
If you're actually crazy about farming them you run Mythic+ because it's the hardest most repeatable content.
There is also some sort of stacking % increase any time you do one of those things and don't get a legendary, but it's a tiny amount.
There is also some sort of mechanism that lowers your % based on how many that character already has gotten (even if you vendored them).
the only time i've been actually happy about getting a legendary was for the shoulders, and every other time it's just been frustration. even the dumbass helmet on my hunter, it's not a bad item, but it took me FOREVER to get my first garbage legendary for my DK and my barely played hunter i don't care about at all got a legendary out of his like 5th emissary cache. the RNG in this expansion is seriously ruining it for me. the small consolation of "well in 10 more months you might have the legendaries you actually want" really doesn't provide any comfort when i've been pretty consistently screwed for the past 3. and, they may increase the drop rate, but they are also adding 2 new legendaries that are worse than any of the 3 i want, so it's just going to dilute the pool with more garbage instead of increasing the odds of getting something that isn't total ass. the one saving grace of getting prydaz was hey i'm more likely to get what i want now, but it's just going to decrease in odds again once 7.1.5 hits
anyway by now enough has been said about the legendary system and i'm sure everyone is sick to death of hearing about how it is very, very fucking bad (which it is!) so on the other hand here is the first google image search result for the word dog that i will not fix the link on if it doesn't inline properly
And I got my legendary arms/fury belt from a Nightfallen Cache.
I have the cloak from Maiden that has +crit, with the effect of +10% healing on crits.
The neck from Arcway with +crit and +5% max mana.
The trinket from Mana Devourer that barfs out mana orbs, and the Vial of Nightmare Fog for shield procs.
Work on your history report, son.
