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!
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 2 of my WeakAura School. If you haven’t read up on the Basics (Part 1) do so here.
In this part I’ll teach you how to build your own proc aura. A proc aura is a texture or icon that pops up on your screen to relay a type of information, for example that a certain spell is ready to be used or that your health is at a certain percentage. You can program it to trigger to anything you like.
Hello, and welcome to my WeakAura School. Here you will learn about the World of Warcraft addon WeakAuras2 and how you can build your own auras the way I do. You do not need any previous knowledge of the addon and it requires absolutely zero programming skills. The addon itself can be coded with a specific programming language, but I don’t use it and still can do very beautiful and sometimes rather complex auras.
In the first part of my WeakAura School series I will teach you the basics and the menu of the addon, which will pretty much prepare you to build any aura you like. It will also work as a reference guide! But I will follow it up by writing guides on how I build specific auras to show you the ins and outs of this very powerful addon.
I have noticed that there is a severe lack of WeakAura trackers for Crane stance on the internet. So I thought, why won’t I try to create some then? How hard can it be?
Well, it wasn’t easy but it could be done. WeakAuras can be quite complicated but once you get the gist, it’s easy to produce several trackers in a row. I have updated my addon section with these, but I’ll paste them here as well!
WeakAuras for Stance of the Spirited Crane
Also known as fistweaving!
WeakAura string for Tiger Strikes here.
WeakAura string for Vital Mists here.
WeakAura string for Crane’s Zeal here.
WeakAura string for Tiger Power here.
WeakAura string for Rising Sun Kick Debuff here.
If you’re wondering what the hell these little buggers are, head over to the strategy section to do your Crane stance studies.
Note that the Tiger Strikes is a buff you get from auto attacks (far left). The Rising Sun Kick symbol (far right) refers to the debuff the spell of the same name applies on enemies. It is is programmed to be activated when your target has the debuff (otherwise it’s shiny and grey).
Also note that these trackers are only visible in Crane stance! When you enter Serpent stance these will magically vanish only to reappear again when you re-enter Crane stance. Handy right?
