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).
- WeakAura Library – A library filled with export codes to different Mistweaver weakauras.
- WeakAura Skins – A summary of different skinning addons I use to WA.
- WeakAura School – A guide to building your own auras.
- UI Philosophy – I talk about my own UI, how I think and reason behind creative decisions. A helpful page for those who need an extra helping hand with their own UI!
- UI Inspiration – Some inspiration for you guys.
That’s it for now. Let me know what you think!
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.
“Hello, my name is Ashleah and I am a UI addict. It has been 20 minutes since I last tweaked my weakauras.”

Now that I’m back home I’ve finally added the Mistweaver Clock aura that everyone was screaming about. But I didn’t stop just there, I’ve updated every single aura I have in my library. Yes, it takes freaking hours to do. I’ve got black belt in patience.
If you want this WeakAura that hows Mana and Mana Tea stacks, head over to my;
Knock yourselves out! I will also provide a complete index over my auras after the jump.

I’ve added some more addons and weakauras!
- BLT Raid Cooldowns
- Elvui – Shadow&Light
- Chi Brew
- Chi Torpedo
- Mistweaver T17 2-set bonus – Mistweaving
- Mistweaver T17 4-set bonus – Chi’ji’s Guidance
I am in a little bit of a hurry because I’m going away for a short skiing holiday and I haven’t packed in time. None of the addons or weakauras have any images attached yet, but I think you can manage. Let me know if the auras work or not! I won’t have proper internet for a week so I might not be able to fix anything until I get back. But if there are any problems, I’ll fix it then (but let’s hope it won’t be needed). I’ll still be able to check my twitter if you have any questions.
Anyway, until next week!
After a lot of work I’m finally done with my WeakAura Library! Here you can find export strings to many WeakAuras for Mistweavers. There are Mistweaver cooldowns, general Monk cooldowns and some indicators. Take a look at it here:
And yes, the very sought-after Mana and Chi indicator can be found there.
Copy the export string, then go into WoW. Use the /wa commando to bring the Weakaura menu up then click on Import and paste the export string.
If you want to move the weakaura (which you likely want to do), select the weakaura you want to move by clicking on the group in the menu (not the specific auras within the group). Then the weakaura will pop up on your screen. You can move the aura by clicking and dragging on the anchor at the centre of the aura. Place the aura where you want it to be. If you want to have a more precise location on the aura, click on the aura in the menu then go to “Group”. At the bottom you can find X-offset and Y-offset coordinates where you can specify where you want the aura more exactly.
If you want to change size or color you have to open up the weakaura group (there’s a small plus sign to extend the group). You have to change each aura individually, so click on the aura then “Display”. There you can play around with the looks of the aura.
Hope you guys like it!
