Weakaura School Revamp and Updates

I have finally taken the time to update the way, way, way outdated Weakaura School. Now it’s finally relevant for this patch’s (and expansion’s) content. I’ve revamped it so that it’s no longer a text guide, it’s a video guide now. Because frankly, video is such an easier medium for teaching about addons. I hope you agree!

Right, so they are videos I’ve uploaded on Youtube. For the first lesson, you can find the video resources on its blog page (click on the images to follow the links).

Sidenote: I’ve also updated the Custom Texture Aura page for this patch. The auras were a little broken after all the talents had swapped around!

I’ll probably do more lessons when I have the time for it. I have a vague idea to make a video of how my UIs work (many uninitiated ask about it), maybe some auras that are based on DBM announces. There’s a lot to cover, so if you have ideas of what you want to learn, let me know in the comments below!

WeakAura (Icon) Library Updated

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!

WeakAura Hub added to Misty Teahouse

Painting

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 Hub

  • 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!

WeakAura for Crane Stance / Fistweaving

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!

Trackers – before and after proc

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?

Enjoy~~

EDIT; You can find more and improved WeakAuras in my WeakAura Library!
