A popular demand have been additional Elvui profiles with action bars. Since I am a graceful hos- I mean blogger, I have added a few (a lot) profiles into my arsenal of UI profiles. I may have gone overboard yet again, but my ambition is a natural byproduct of my passion for UIs.
I have done a basic profile that should fit every class, and then copied it to a myriad of different color schemes. Do note however, when imported it needs some touch-ups which I will go through at the end of this post.
You can find the profiles in:
Double check that you have the following addons installed and updated:
- Elvui Shadow&Light
- VisualAura Timers
After you have imported the Elvui profile, go to the Elvui menu /ec > Shadow&Light > Panels&Dashboards > Backgrounds and enable the background bar.
To allow Masque skin the action bars and buffs/debuffs, you need to enable Masque support in the Elvui menu. Go to /ec > Actionbars and down at Masque support, tick in all the boxes. Do the same with Buffs & Debuffs.
I use the extension addon Renaitre to skin my icons, using the Thinnerest model. Add 50% gloss and a color that matches your Elvui profile.
If you feel handy with addons, why not add a few more extension addons to Elvui? I’m a fan of the tag-addons, a.k.a. customizing the text on unit frames. I download my extension addons from the Tukui client (download here). I use the following addons:
The first extension addon gives you a few more options to color the text, while the second addon allows you to add absorbs into the equation. For example, the [health:absorbs] tag allows you to see how much absorbs a unit has based on its health. If I’m on full health (100%) and apply Life Cocoon to myself, the health text will go up to 163.5% health.
It’s very handy when you need to predict where to put your Extend Life buff and have an absorb-crazy Disc or Paladin in your raid (or both)!
Good luck with your UI tinkering! ♥
