This week, Omegi, a member of <J E T T> on Kalecgos horde-side sends in his fairly minimal UI. It gets me to thinking, and I hope it'll get you to thinking too. Here's what's on my mind - what's more efficient: well-placed buttons with easy visual clues, or an array of keybindings that you commit to memory? Omegi has a set of keybindings which are great, and I'm digging the large buttons for infrequently used items/skills.
Here is the UI I have grown to love over the career of my mage.
Here is a list of mods and key bindings.
My mod list:
CT Raid Assist: Only for the group bars to show buffs. A raid leader must know his class officers are buffing up their members properly.
Bongos: This allowed me to move buttons around and make them smaller or larger. It also allows me to color the square for range notification and allows easy hover and click key bindings.
Cryolosys Revived: A mage must have. Otherwise you have 2 bars of useless buffs
Natures Enemy Cast bar: Shows enemy and friendly cast and cool down timers. I know when a soulstone is available or when someones polymorph timer is up.
Deadly Boss Mods: Better than CT Boss mods by a long shot.
Easy Combat log: It's color coded crap for idiots like me.
Titan Panel: duh?
Improved Camera2 : extends the range you can zoom out.
EZdismount: click a spell while mounted and you dismount for the fast attack.
Trinket Menu: better trinket management.
Xperl Unit Frames: Better group frames
Smart Debuff: Every debuff class must have it.
