    KyloUI - Simple, Elegant, Uncluttered, Useable.

    In browsing the forums at all the wonderful UIs it became clear to be that although many of the UIs here are fab and groovy that there's a distinct lack of some of the most important considarations (at least for me) for a Tank;

    Visibility:
    The more you can see the more aware as a Tank you can be, and awareness is at least 50% of what being a good tank is all about

    Critical Activity Centre:
    Moving DBM, PowerAuras, Scrolling Combat Text, ZOMGBuff, Tidy-Plates into the critical center of the screen where all the action happens. This is enough to give you all the critical information you need.
    Moving other useful but non-critical information to the edges of the screen (frames, chat, buffs, etc)

    You can download it from my DropBox here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3342216/Worl...aft/KyloUI.zip

    Edit: If you are having FPS problems with this setup TidyPlates and Skada clashing can be one of the worst offenders. I found that switching from Grey/Tank to Neon/Tank theme in TidyPlates does help if you're FPS takes a nosedive after a pull

    Isn't this just SpartanUI + some essential addons for raiding?

    Btw, what the fuck is with the whisper down there?

    It is indeed SpartanUI and several other addons. I take no credit for the addons themselves - only the selection/compliation and the arrangement. What I'm intending to get across is the imporance of improving visibility, while maintaining a central focus for addon messages to help you focus on what I believe is important as a tank.

    The whisper is from a disgruntled tank after I called him up on his sloppy tanking - I can't remember what for

    There's a minor update by a fan that you can find on wow-interface if you have a look. Alternatively you can grab my UI zip file and just grab the spartanUI folders from it. If you do - don't forget to grab the oUF addon also for the unit frames for spartan.

    All the best

    You should change the background of Omen to make it transparent and not the funky parchment.

    The OP hasn't been changed in 3 years buddy, he's gone. A few things. This is an old squareish monitor, probably isn't optimized for widescreen. X-Perl is ugly and bloated, try Shadowed unitframes instead. SpartanUI is ridiculous. There is zero good reason to put the minimap front and center in your UI.
