I have the interface from hell.
Years of choosing and discarding mods until I have the functionality I desire have left my screen cluttered and confusing.
This is the real reason I play a Gnome, at least I can see a little bit of WoW real estate.
Back in the days when I toyed with complete interfaces they were fraught with hours of configuration and incompatible addons. By the time I would get it barely functioning a new WoW patch would come out and I was back to square one.
I know things have improved, but I have never found the time to research, download and configure one, for one character, let alone the half dozen I check up on from time to time.
So I am putting out the call to my readers.
- What do you use and why?
- Can I download it from somewhere and install it in 30-60 minutes?
- Is it easily configurable?
- Will it handle the raft of macros I live and die by?
- Will it allow a Tauren to run about and see more than the curve of it’s horns?
I know there is way to “fool” WoW into thinking it really has less realestate for the display of the landscape, while still allowing the display of toolbars etc… what/how?
I use a truck load of macros… I pretty much modify most spells I cast… so need to be able to put macros in rather than stock standard blizzard icons… which I guess means I am looking for an action bar replacement as well…
Here is a list of addons I currently use. Are they (or their equivalent) catered for?
“Must haves” (like them, or something like them, but preferably them):
- Auctioneer Advanced.
- CT_MailMod / MailTo/ Postal/ Postman
- FuBar including (ChatAlertsFu, ClockFu, DurabilityFu, FriendsFu, FuXPFu, GroupFu, GuildFu, HonorFu, MailFu, MoneyFu, NavigatorFu, OutfitterFu, PerformanceFu, QuestsFu, ReagentFu, ToFu, TransporterFu)
- Scrolling Combat Text (SpellAlert, Damage)
Nice to haves (or, I will install them no matter how bad the interface ends up looking… probably)
- Analyst/ Auditor2
- BigWigs+LittleWigs / DBM
- Natur Enemy Castbars
Gnomer and Out!
