Anyone have a good UI for WoW? Most of the ones I found don't work well with my laptop due to they being developed about having a larger screen size. I need one that works at 1280x720.

Im trying to get back into the game since its one of the few that works really well on the laptop.

I piece my own together.

I mainly use XPerl (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/details/3416/), Bartender 3 and a ton of others from wowace.com (http://files.wowace.com/).

Whatever you get, I highly recommend Lightheaded (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info7017-LightHeaded.html) and TomTom along with Cartographer, especially if you plan on doing any questing.

My addons folder looks like this:

I would have to agree, I also use most of those addons and have come to rely on some grately.
I dunno what Id do without Cartographer and Lightheaded especially :)

I know another bar mod ppl use is Bongos.

It's not dislike more like never cared for it. I liked EQ1/2 far better but SOE ****ed EQ2 up and EQ1 grew too much for me to return.

I would love to play WarHammer Online but the Lappy is having issue running the Beta. :p

I need friends to play WoW with, I logged in to see everyone offline... they all got bored of the game while they wait for the new expansion. :(

here is my UI that I custom built. If you're serious about getting it PM me.

it is 100% customizable meaning that you can resize, scale, and reposition everything. Destroys cosmosUI imho.

Magus, I'm on Azgalor Horde PvP server if you need some help or anything. I'm still leveling a new toon at the moment. It's been slow going as RL has been occupying me.

Also, don't ever use Cosmos.

Zelda, what's the mod you use instead of Xperl?

This is how my compilation looks on my work PC, the video card is only an ATI X550. I have it running at 800x600 to keep the frames up. On my home PC it looks a lot different due to having the 8800 and 22" widescreen.

I still have a few lingering mods on my pc from them that I like, but its mostly WoWace mods now.

Cosmos as a compilation is bloated with a ton of pure junk.

Cosmos has some individual mods that are useful, but I think all those have non-Cosmos equivalents that are better now.

I don't disagree with the bloated. I also still use most of the default ui as oposed to what you guys use.

The most important things to me are my bar layouts and where my avatars are. I like having my bars where things are grouped somewhat and my avatars close to my line of sight where I can see castbars and health and not at the top of the screen.

I use PitBull for my unit frames. It's much more customizable than XPerl imho. Also, every addon I used (except for the auctioneer suite which lets me milk the AH for around 80G per day) runs on the Ace2 or Rock framework, so there isn't a lot of overhead.

Ace is the way to go. I love the wowace updater as well.

I will check into this Pitbull mod. XPerl has served me well though.

Maybe I will join you... My server is full too often and my friends list is all offline lately.

BTW Guys, Thanks for the recommendations... think im gonna pick and choose which I like best.

I tried Bongos but like Bartender better.

The customizability is my biggest draw to playing WoW. No other MMO will get consideration from me until they can offer something similar. I have tried numerous MMOs since I've been playing WoW, but all fail to capture the customization that makes the game feel more personal.

Thor: You're a feral without the Druidbar mod? Like zomg! I love my Druidbar.

yeah.. what is that... might have to go looking


edit: yeah I have seen those... meh. I don't normally do enough shifting or casting to worry about mana unless I am doing the ray daily, or hydros where I was shifting a lot.

It shows your mana while you are in feral forms.
With Xperl, it adds another bar to the avatars info. On default UI, I think it adds another movable bar or can split your energy/rage bar into 2 with mana on one side.

realizing your problem is your first step to recovery.

personally I like druids... but I think that is obvious to people who read my posts in this forums section.

Most needed roles for PvE are always Tank and Healer. DPS and CC are a dime a dozen.

Most needed for PvP are Warrior and Healer/dispeller. CC reigns as king the more you get into larger arenas.

I would highly recommend a Warrior or Paladin for PvP, for PvE I would highly recommend Druids if you aren't dead set on what role you want to play. I have much love for ferals.
