This UI setup is pre-5.0.4. For the most part, this page is accurate. There are, however, several addons that I'm currently using that aren't included on this page. A walk-through video on which addons I use and settings is in the works. Hang tight, it'll be here soonish!
Do you like my UI or certain components of my UI, and wish to make them your own? Do you think that my personal user interface is far too chaotic, and are wondering why I use everything that I do? Well, here's a full breakdown.
1) LUI -The base package for my user interface is LUI. I have naturally readjusted a few things, such as opting out of the standard raid frames for Healbot and changing my damage meter, but my unit frames and the general look are all LUI. A few things that I love outside of the look of LUI: the sliding side bars (marked as 1 on the right, there's also a hide-away bar closed on the left) and the ability to hover over Guild and Friends (top right hand side) and see who is online via drop down list. Also gives the ability to fade out chat/Omen/Recount (which I do not have enabled, see Skada), which is a neat aesthetic.
Addons that come with the LUI package:
2) Omen - I know many folks have ceased to run any sort of threat monitor since the new threat changes, but it is still useful, especially in LFR PuGs or when your guild is training a new tank.
3) Skada - I love Recount to bits, I really do. Recount also jives very well with the LUI look. However, since patch 4.3 rolled out Recount has been locking me out of my characters (I try to load a character and get stuck on the loading screen with a full blue bar - it happens randomly. Some characters will load one time, while not others. Some characters always load, some never will. Addon setups between characters are usually identical. I have done the Recount updates, no dice). Skada works well enough, though the results it puts out often differ from those of Recount. It's no more than a reference tool anyhow, the logs tell all!
4) Dotimer - A must have addon for any DoT class (ferals, affliction locks, and spriests specifically), and handy for any other class. Through this addon I can watch my totem durations, my Stormstrike debuff, my Searing stacks, and the time left on Flame Shock/Earth Shock. It will also track cooldowns if you so wish it to, but I disable that feature since I use MikScrollingBattleText (the audio queues are awesome imo) and visually track my CDs through other means. A forewarning: if you don't set up the Dotimer filters correctly, casted spells that buff the whole raid (Heroism/Lust/Time Warp, Roar of Courage, Furious Howl, etc) will create a mess and may push your DoT tracking right off of your screen.
5) MikScrollingBattleText - This addon creates a lot of text on a screen that may or may not be actually useful to you unless you use Fraps and watch the numbers roll in. I like to use this spam as quick references. My health just chirped at me (MSBT warning), am I getting heals? Check left hand side. Is my position funky on the boss, am I getting glancing blows? Check right hand side. The boxed area indicated (5) on the left is where I receive text stating which cooldown just came up, accompanied by an audio tick. The box above my lightning marker (standard UI) indicates any incoming things not specified by the other three areas (mana return, reputation gains, enter/exit combat). I've reduced the size of the scroll areas vastly, but I'm still tweaking this addon in attempts to find that happy place of where I can see the information that I often seek during an encounter without being too distracted by a whole lot of spam.
6) Healbot - For my healers I disable Grid (which comes with the LUI package) and instead opt to use Healbot. This is a personal choice. I've been using Healbot for years and while the look of this addon doesn't jive with the rest of my layout, it's what I know. Go with what you know and are comfortable with!
7) Quartz - Unfortunately in the screen shot above, Quartz is not shown. I don't often hardcast as enhance, so you can't see where my cast bar is on the initial shot. I also apparently didn't time the shot when Ultraxion was casting, so you can't see the enemy cast bar either. Each has been indicated by a box; my personal cast bar is right under my unit frame, while the enemy cast bar is just above my pet bar.
In this shot you can see where my various bars lay with Bartender. The box on the far bottom right corner are my Naga mouse bindings (I'm still new to it, so I don't have everything bound to it as of yet), which has been made to be invisible at all times and click through, so it won't mess with me using Healbot, which lays directly over top of that particular bar. You can easily see where both my right and left hide-away bars are located. My totem bar and professions cluster both hide until I mouse over them.
9) TimeToDie - A great addon to help you gauge whether or not your raid's current dps output will be able to beat that 3/5/whatever minute enrage timer.
10) NugComboBar - A great addon to help any class that has a combo point or stacking combo point system, which is to say nearly everyone. It tracks Maelstrom procs, feral combo points, rogue combo points, hunter pet focus, holy power, Soul Shards, Shadow Orbs, as well as a few other abilities that seem to be escaping me at the moment.
11) Deadly Boss Mods - Your standard boss mod. I personally prefer DBM over BigWigs, but this is preference simply because I've been using DBM since I started raiding all of those many years ago.
Addons you may or may not notice.
Button Facade (now Masque apparently) + Darion - Just makes my buttons a bit prettier, as well as helps to make them stand out a bit more.
Tidy Plates - Love Tidy Plates. Seems to make clicking on a target a bit easier and makes things look a bit less chaotic with multiple nameplates than the standard ui does.
Quality of game play addons.
ArkInventory - I began using this addon prior to the implement of the search feature into the standard UI. This addon not only turns all of your bags into one giant bag, but allows you to search all of your alts simultaneously for a certain item, view an alt's bags, and will restack/sort all of your items if you tell it to, plus more! Super handy addon to have, though a bit heavy. There are alternatives out there that run a bit lighter, but ArkInventory is my personal favorite.
Bags and Bank (Post Void Storage)
Disabled ArkInventory for the Guild Bank
Mapster - Turns my giant map into a smaller one that can be pulled up while still being able to see.
Mapster + NPC_Scan Overylay
_NPCScan - As many of you have guessed by now, I am a hunter of rares. I would have missed many a kill and tame if it wasn't for this addon and its counterpart, _NPCScan Overlay.
Archy - A great addon to help you along with your Archeology profession. Usually buggy with each new patch, but usually fixed within the first month or so.
Atlas Loot - For all those data base search needs. Lists loot of every boss in the game, craftable items, tier sets, tabards, and so much more.
clsaver - Automatically enables combat logging when you enter a raid instance while in a raid party.
MBB - Condenses all of your mini map buttons into one button that extends when clicked.
Postal - Allows select and mass looting of your mailbox.
Bug Grabber + Bug Sack - Catches errors, records them, and helps to prevent a lot of LUA spam.
