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!
Creating your own Death Knight UI
Step 1: Download Addons
Elvui – All Elvui addons can easily be downloaded with the Tukui Client.
Elvui Color Tags (if you don’t download this, you will get small error tags on unit frames in the elvui profile).
Elvui Absorb Tags (if you don’t download this, you will get small error tags on unit frames in the elvui profile).
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 This is of course part of the update for my blog, which still has a few outdated pages (but a few less now!).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! :)
Hello, fellow monks! In this fine evening, I’ve managed to get the time to do smaller updates on my blog. Some minor tweaks on the Basic Mistweaving Guide, added weakauras for the Artifact in my Icon Aura Library and added four new looks for the Custom Transmog page. I still have many things I want to update, but small steps, people.
Mistweaver Artifact Auras
There are two auras pertinent for our new artifact: the stacks for Sheilun’s Gift and the duration of the buff Mists of Sheilun. I’ve added those to the Icon Aura Library if you want specific trackers for them. As for the two other major traits; they’re rather self-evident so there’s no need for auras for them.
If you’re missing any icon auras in my library, just give me a shout and I’ll see if I can whip something up when I have time. But I think I’ve covered most of a Mistweaver’s need.
Only half a month to go before Legion – it’s high time to make sure that your UI is on point! I have a string of updates I need to do before launch, and today I can tick on of them off: the Mistweaver Icon Aura Library. I’ve got you covered!
In my Icon Aura library you can find export strings for all kinds of auras. I have nearly all abilities (shows cooldown of Renewing Mist, Revival, Life Cocoon, etc), good auras for fistweaving (Teachings of the Monastery, Rising Sun Kick), talents (Lifecycles, Mana Tea, etc.) and trackers that shows how many people in your group are affected by ReM and the Essence Font buff. I recommend skinning the icons with the addon Masque and a few extension addons!
After innumerable hours of work, the WeakAura Library update is finally live! The Library is now split into three parts and include Mistweaver Icon Auras, Custom Texture Auras and a section completely dedicated to UI Troubleshooting. It also includes graphic auras for Windwalker and Brewmaster Monks! Since the update is so large, there may be some issues with some of the auras – if you find them, please report in the Troubleshooting page (comments are enabled there)!
Have you ever played the indie game Journey on PS3 or PS4? It is, hands down, the most beautiful game ever created. There’s no comparison when it comes to music, art and story. As I was tanking in my Brewmaster spec, I realised I wanted my UI to have some of the textures that can be seen in Journey. One, two, three, and a creative avalanche had set off. I brushed up my custom textures for the Brewmaster spec, and as I was admiring it, I knew I had to copy it to all my other specs. So… A few hours later, and my UI now looks shiny and new. Again. Thank my addiction.
I still get many requests for my recent WeakAuras, but since many of them are custom made, there’s a lot of hassle to share and export (sigh). However, I’m more than happy to show you how I’ve made them. Really, there’s no special magic in the works, only time consuming work. So, today I’ll talk a little about Model auras. They are the fancy, sparkly spell animations you can see on some parts of my UI.
Model Auras are a type of auras that show an animation instead of an icon, texture or progress bar. If you open up the WeakAura menu, go to “New”.
Click on “Model”, and you’ll create a new Model Aura. In the “Display” tab, click on the button “Choose” to make the menu pop up.
My labours have finally come to an end. If you look up a little on the page, to the blog’s menu, you’ll see a new addition: “WeakAura Hub”. Since I have put so much passion and effort into my own UI, I thought I would share some of the wisdom I’ve come by. Not only does it contain my WeakAura Library, a page about WA skins, my WeakAura School, but also a page about my UI Philosophy and a page for some inspiration. I really hope you guys will like it. It will be continued work in progress and I’ll try to add things as I go along (more WeakAuras to come, definitely).
Hello and welcome to part 3 of my WeakAura School. Today I’m going to teach you how to build your own Cooldown Aura. I will use Revival as template, but the principles of making a cooldown aura remains the same for any cooldown. You can use this guide to make a cooldown aura for any spell you’d like. Let’s get started!
If you are unsure of how the WeakAura menu works, take a look in my basic tutorial of WA in part one of my guide.
The finished product will look like this, on and off cooldown;
The Mistweaver have been silent for a while. It is because the Mistweaver found herself in a deep dark hole called user interface addiction and couldn’t dig herself out until the screen was covered in jade mist and mysterious symbols that meant nothing unless you had the secret cheat note. The Mistweaver has currently seen a spot of light and can communicate with the outside world again. For a while, at least. The Mistweaver will stop talking about herself in third person now.
If you’ve seen my latest video, my Gruul mythic kill, you may have noticed that my UI looks about 300% more spaced out now with 200% more Monk references. Yeah, that’s what I’ve been doing the past days and it’s not even half of it. I may or may not have done an equal effort to pimp my Windwalker and Brewmaster UI in the same fashion.
