I'm not a huge fan of messing around with the wow interface but I think I've fallen in love with Cinderhelm's scrolling combat text. Feel free to call me a nub but I can't find it. Anyone know the name of it?
And yes SCT mods are amazing. It helps a great deal as a tank because it makes you more aware of the sort of damage your taking and if you should be avoiding it or not, a lot easier to spot Whirlwinds on the damn Dark Touched Warriors when your Melee, after I get hit by one WW I strafe away and intercept back in.
Also as a healer it makes you aware of your buffs and gains while your in unit frame tunnel vision mode.
I've used both, and to me, it's pretty much six of one, half a dozen of the other. I like Bartender's configuration options to be a little more detailed and easier to work with, but that's just personal preference. Either one does the job excellently.
I've spent alot of time over the past few days trying out different mods and tinkering with many many many settings. I decided to try out a setup for my shaman before I perfected it and tailored it to the almighty warrior tank. So... here it is, wanted to share it.
This is my UI.
I you wondering about my weird bar setup, the reason behind it is I use Microsoft Strategic Commander keypad.
It has 6 buttons + 3 shift buttons and all movement is under the same hand. Using Dominos I mapped abilities to 4 sets of keys exactly as they are on the keypad. If I want to use demoshout, I press button 5 + 2nd shift.
I have always had gaming keyboards but they are nowhere near.This is the essence of ergonomy. It is leathal once you get used to it.
I have everything I need without moving fingers!
Small shield wall and last stand are mapped to + - zoom keys on it as well, middle small spell interupt is mapped to thumb button on a mouse.
For Sward and Board's and Slam's proc (while fury) I use just sound notification. I am planning po put more sound notifications to other things.
I am waiting for better choice of 100Hz+ monitors to get Nvidia 3d glasses, then it will have more space to make things tidy.
i toggled test mode on, dragged in position, locked... it kept stuck in test mode... relog, it resetted... got it right once, but my health wouldn't refresh, and it wouldn't show my energy at all... is there a tut of it or something -.- could really use it.
