Clean Wow Interface

How to clean up your World of Warcraft Interface

Check out my video and see just how much I was able to trim off my interface and remain functional. Without weak auras I wouldn't suggest hiding your main action bars, and even then I wouldn't if you use a mod like Bitten's spell flash or omnicc to track the cooldowns of your spells. 

Mods You will need:
Weak Auras (Optional if you wish to keep your action bars visable)

The Elvui section
1. First off install Elvui and then go through the steps to finish the initial setup that will automatically pop up when you enter the game. After this is done then type /elvui in your chat box to bring up the Elvui User Interface.
2. On the left hand side of the options menu click on the + button on the action bars menu and then go down the list and put a check in every box that you wish to hide until you mouse over it. These bars will only be visible when you hover your mouse over them.
3. Now select the unit frames + to collapse that menu and change the size of your Player frames, Target frames and Pet frames until you are happy with the width and height.
4. Lastly, click on the "Toggle Anchors" and you will see a whole bunch of black boxes. You can drag these around the screen to wherever you would like them. I moved my mini map, player frames, target frames, and pet frames in the video so everything else was in it's default position for the most part. Once you are happy with where everything is then simply click on the "Lock Frames" button in the middle of your screen. And that's all there is to that part.

Weak Auras section
1. After you have found a weak auras string that you want to use copy it from whatever website you got it from so that it will be on your clipboard.
2. Type /wa when you get in game and select new from the upper left menu and then import from the bottom right menu.
3. Once the text window pops up simply click on the text menu and hit Control+V to paste the string from your clipboard. A new window will pop up and you just need to click on import from this new window to finish the process.

I will post the exact weak aura string I used in the video in the next post as soon as I can remove my hotkey labels. If you have any questions just reply and we'll help you get it figured out.
