Imp's Guide To Elvui!

Postby ralmeida » Tue Oct 11, 2016 6:12 pm

Heyo!!!

And welcome to my guide on how to ELVUI!

Elvui is a complete ui replacement!
Easy to config and easy to update and install!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
With that being said, lets get started!

------------------------------------------------

Step 1
Download and install Elvui from the official website at http://www.tukui.org/dl.php
and no, its not on curse... Just install it the old ways!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 2 - Getting Started

After installing your elvui and enter the game you will have a strange thing called: "First Time Setup" this is to get you started on the basics of elvui!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 3 - Make it your own, or not?!

You can config your Elvui right after the setup! Just tap on "Esc" and smash that "Elvui Button" and you can config the way you want, like Unitframes, Bags, Chat, Bars, Maps, everything!!!!

If you are confused and don't know or just doesn't want to spend time on making a perfect ui, You can import an Elvui Config from other users!

And that's where I come in...

I most likely have the best strings for Elvui! Inspired on the best Raiders and PvPers of Wow!

Now you might be thinking: Imp!? You are a Cat! Im a Discipline Priest! since when can you config a dps ui to a healing ui!?

haha! I got you covered aswell!

by the way, if you use Voodoo just switch off the Elvui Raid frames (you will find out, i dont expect you being 3 years old!) and replace them with voodoo!

enough rambling about, here's the strings

DPS: http://pastebin.com/Avpa8j0B ( Hum might contain an easter egg on the name... you can change it by going on Unitframes>Player Frame> Name> Custom text> insert " [name] instead of something else... :) )

Healing: http://pastebin.com/AwRzfDyq (Hum might contain an easter egg on the name... you can change it by going on Unitframes>Player Frame> Name> Custom text> insert " [name] instead of something else... :) )

Profiles>Export now > Contrl+V
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Final stuff
-----------
This is an almost complete ui replacement, you will still need your skada, DBM/Bigwigs!

Nice one

Ive tried elvui a few times, personally im not a mad fan. I like a clean empty UI and with elv i can never seem to get it.

Empty as in literally the only thing that will show outside fights is chat and map lol rest of it i have to disappear into the shadows. Though theres a few features from elvui that id likento capture but alas cant find an addon that does it.

I used to do that Frozen, but spent some (a lot..) of time with Elvui before Legion launched and you can hide basically EVERYTHING if you work at it. Pretty cool but does require lots of setup....

--Update--

Postby ralmeida » Tue Dec 20, 2016 6:15 pm

Hello folks, after some time I've updated the string with some other goodies
in order to bring some more customization.

------------------------------------------------
For this new update to function beautifully you will need the Elvui Plug-in: Shadow & Light, and you're also going to need Skada. You will find both the plugin and skada in https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/ or maybe you already have the curse client. --I use bazillions of more addons, but that's really the ones that change the most of my UI.

-----------------------------------------------
BTW i don't have the healing one updated because I'm currently not healing much and there's nothing i would change on it.
