More Updates in the Teahouse

I have been hard at work making more updates for the Teahouse. This time, I have reworked and updated the UI Hub. There are only a few more updates that are needed until the whole blog is as I want it!

New updates on the blog:

  • UI Philosophy – This page has been rewritten from scratch. Here I talk about my thought process when I’m creating my UIs, mostly when it comes to composition, disposition and tackling the problem with aesthetics vs practicality. I use my own UIs, old and new, as illustrative examples.
  • UI Inspiration – A page where I showcase all the different UIs I’ve done, plus some guest ones. Added my newest creations to the page.
  • UI Troubleshooting – This page has been updated with the latest and most common problems people ask me about – and the solutions! More images has been added for +5 in visual guidance.

Weakaura Updates, New Transmogs and More

Time flies when you’re having fun, and I’ve been playing World of Warcraft like crazy. Enough to forget to update the blog as I should. But I will try to rectify that now! Here is the first batch of updates, concerning weakauras and transmog.

Weakaura HUDs for all three Monk specs

New and updated HUDs for all three specs are available here:

Patreon June Complete – Death Knight UI

After much unintended delay of my Death Knight UI, it is finally here! This time the custom-made UI for our lovely DKs changes color depending on which spec is active. It was fun to make and I really hope my patrons enjoy it!

Patreon March Complete – Warrior UI

My journey to make class UIs has begun. This month I painted interface art for a Warrior UI for my Patreon and it became rather cool if I do say so myself. The fun thing about just making art is that you can assemble it in any way you want. Pick and choose!

New Monk UIs and Custom Art

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this for a long time. The past month I’ve been working on some new free UIs and textures for Monks. This is of course part of the update for my blog, which still has a few outdated pages (but a few less now!). These UIs are very simple Elvui profiles with some extra custom art and textures, and I hope you’ll like them!

It’s all for free, but some links lead to my Gumroad store. Just type in 0$ to download the art packages for free, or add a few dollars to show support for my work. Thanks! :)

Elvui Profile Page Update

I’ve been in a bit of a funk the past weeks. Long story short, I was a bit blue but now I’ve decided to pull myself up by the bootstraps and do things I’ve procrastinated. Step one, update as many blog pages as I can manage between work hours. The Elvui page is quite easy, so I’ve started with that.

Elvui Profile Page

There’s only one profile so far (the old ones were completely outdated). But I’ve added a few more steps and addons to tweak the UI, so it’s a bit more elaborate than before. The guide takes you through each step, so don’t worry if you’re not too familiar with the addons.

I’ll probably add a few more color variations at some point, and maybe a few more textures. But for now, this steel-grey profile works quite elegantly for all classes, if you prefer a more minimalistic style.

Patreon November Complete – Art of the Fall

The art of the Fall UI has been distributed to all patrons that supported me this November! Here’s a post to help you make that beautiful art into a functional UI. There’s an elvui profile and weakaura export strings ready to be imported to get the exact set-up I have. But don’t be afraid to experiment and make your own twist!
