Don’t have hooves, in need of shoes? Skip the flip-flops (Knitted Sandals) unless it’s for beach. Stay classy and go with Dress Shoes instead!

Hello!

Since I read about transmogrification (I don’t even have to look it up anymore!), I have been spending lots of time browsing wowhead and similar sites to look at armor, find out what would look good for the future. Not only for gear that can be transmogrified, but also outfits for different occasions, showing off in Stormwind etc. I guess there’s a hidden role player inside me after all! I love the Outfitter addon, been using it for years now. And yes, I know that Blizz has its own similar version, but I think still think Outfitter is better and better at organising my different gear sets, pvp, resto, elemental…and now also fishing, mexican, cheerleader and, hm…circus outfit?

Next thing I want is a pirate outfit, but I hope it’s doable without getting exalted with those Bloodsailers or whatever they are called :/ Already have the hat, shirt should be easy to get, trousers can’t be too hard, and since no boots look good on me, I might as well skip them. Sometimes I think it’s a real shame that I can’t wear plate too, because then there would be 25 % more armor I could put on. And it’s often the plate that have the shiniest colours not to mention some really nice twists. Cmon, who wouldn’t want to kill an end boss dressed as Princess Leia in her golden bikini? What’s your favourite outfit? 🙂

All pieces from the Glorious plate set (random drop, hard to get, chances are best to find them in AH)

After many years of playing WoW, it’s just recently that I have started working more with my user interface. I was happy with the default Blizzard one, till I decided to get a chat addon since I was missing most of my whispers while raiding. When I got that, the chat windows didn’t really fit with my ui, and I saw a screenshot of someone using Spartan UI, which I though looked quite good. I tried downloading this together with Bartender, but the lack of a menu and only using slash commands to customize it, drove me crazy. I spent days and many hours searching and trying out new addons, interface skins and moving buttons and icon up, down, sideways… Till I was finally happy.

This is the ui I am using now (both in and out of combat) and have been for a while (click to enlarge, I chose to keep original size on image):


What’s all this and what does it do?

These are the addons (well, the ones I use for raiding) I use for my ui:

* Prat (chat)

* SexyMap (minimap)

* Bartender  + Button Facade (icons / bars)

* Recount (Meters)

* ShieldsUp (For shaman shields)

* HealBot + Grid (Unit Frames)

* Deadly Boss Mods + Big Wigs (Boss mods)

* Titan Panel (information plugins)

* Sunn Viewport  (interface skin)

This is my warlock alt’s ui, I don’t raid with her, so have not many addons to improve her play style.

All of these are available at Curse, and I would ofc recommend download the free client so you don’t need to wonder where to place them, when to update them etc.

The Sky is the Limit, really

While searching for tips and inspiration, I came over some several good ones, some bad ones and some that were simply crazy. With everything from naked girls to running horses. I guess this simply shows that there are no limits for how much you can customize your ui to look the exact way YOU want. Some want every kind of information on their screen, some what only the most important, like target and targets’ target.  This also depends if you are playing with key binds or clicking with mouse. The more key binds, the less icons you need on your action bars.

Here are some pictures of ui’s I found while searching on google. If you want to see more custom ui’s visit this and this site, they are from Raider UI of the Week thread at Wow Insider. Much interesting! 🙂

Bag addons

Posted: April 7, 2010 in Addons

Dagens addontalk: Addons for å holde oversikt over hva du har i bagene eller banken din. For meg er dette viktig, ettersom jeg drasser rundt på skrot / shinies fra vanillatider og til nå. Ikke søren om jeg orker å logge frem og tilbake for å finne ut hvem som eier hva, det har jeg ikke tålmodighet til. Og bagene mine må vises som én stor, hvis ikke blir jeg bare frustrert og finner ikkenoe (ARGH! Jeg vet den er her et sted!!!).


OneBag: 

♦ Pure love.

♦ Åpner alle bagene som én stor.

♦ Viser farger for rarety of item ( tilgi norsk-engelsken). Epics i lilla. Questitems er gule. Du skjønner tegninga.

♦ Kan endres på slik at du ser dem som du vil. Kolonner, utseende osv.

♦Viser de bagene du vil se.

♦ Åpnes automatisk når du går til postkassa, AH, skal trade noen osv.

♦ Download heeeere! Do it, do it!

Onebank:
Can be pure love (om du organiserer det litt bedre enn meg).

♦ Samme opplegg som OneBag.

♦ Neida, jeg har ikke mye søppel i banken min. Bildet er nemlig fra TBC.

♦ Go get it here.

BankItems:

♦ Perfekt for alle som liker alts, professions og farming.

♦ Viser hvor mange du har av et item, hvem du har de på og hvor du har dem (bank, mail, ah etc).

♦ Du kan gå inn og sjekke bank / bager / eqipped items på dine andre toons uten å måtte logge over.

♦ Du kan sjekke guildbanken din

♦ Last ned her!

Recount

Posted: April 5, 2010 in Addons

Første addon jeg skal ta for meg, som sikkert nesten alle bruker. Det finnes mange lignende damagetmeter, men jeg er fornøyd med denne.

Mange tror Recount er til for å linkes hver gang de ligger øverst (til irritasjon for andre), men det er ikke tilfelle. Man kan derimot lære mye, både av andre og seg selv, ettersom Recount lister opp alt som skjer i combatlogen.

Hvor mye dps gjorde jeg på denne fighten? Hvilkne spells brukte jeg her? Hva burde jeg gjøre mer av? Hvor mye crittet, misset eller dodget jeg? Hvem står i aoe de ikke skal stå i, og hva døde vi egentlig av på den siste wipen?

Recount kan lastes ned her
, kan også anbefale å laste ned Curse's client som er et program du lagrer på PC'en. Derfra kan du styre alle addons og den holder deg orientert om oppdateringer. Det er graits å bruke, med mindre du vil oppgradere til Premium, noe jeg ikke har hatt behov for hittil.

Recount. Har du det?

Addons!

Kommer til å skrive litt om addons fremover. Mine favoritter, kanskje nettopp du finner en du liker? 🙂

Slik ser min interface ut for øyeblikket, midt i en raid:

Ingen mystisk, fancy interface, har klart meg i fire år (eller er det 5? Hvorfor husker jeg aldri dette? Dammit!), med default interface og det har gått bra. Dette er addonsene jeg føler meg naken uten. I tillegg til disse har jeg mange flere, klassespesifiserte og generelle. Apropos generelle, minn meg på hvorfor klokken bare er 06.30 på morgenen og jeg er våken? Om jeg ikke har lagt meg ennå eller er oppe tidlig tør jeg ikke fortelle. Begge deler er jo like ille!

I morgen ( senere i dag) blir det mer addonsnakk. I mellomtiden spør jeg deg: hva er din favorittaddon?
