Wow Patch 5.4 content

Wow 5.4 Content on the way

Just a quick note for everyone. I’m going to be delving into the new World of Warcraft patch 5.4 in the coming days and weeks. Here are some of the things this site will be working on.
  • New fully updated weak aura strings for the classes I know how to play (Monk, Hunter, Druid, Priest in particular). There are usually a lot of big changes with each World of Warcraft patch and 5.4 is no different.
  • Flex Raiding; what is it and how does it work?
  • New single player Proving Grounds. This sounds really interesting. I’d love to tackle this first but it’s not currently available on the public test realm at the time of this post.
So be sure to subscribe or check back often to get up to date on what’s going on.

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.

Wow Monk Weak Auras String

I have weak auras for all three monk specs and this post will be updated shortly to include Brewmaster and Windwalker. I'll start off with Mistweaver for now however since this is my main spec.

This has about everything you could ever need with the exception of a renewing mist tracker, which I use in a separate area of my screen so I can keep a good close eye on the number of targets I have it on. For that, I use Renewing Mist Tracker which you can download from curse. 

Here's a vid (less than a minute) that will show you how to import weak auras strings.

Resto Druid Weak Auras

Restoration Druid Weak Aura String

First off, if you don't have weak auras yet here is the link to it.
Weak Auras 
After you have that squared away then copy the text from the text box at the bottom of this post and import it into weak auras. 
If you have no idea how to import a weak aura string here is a very quick vid I made that shows you how. Importing a weak auras string

This aura string has everything but a lifebloom tracker, which I do use a different mod for this called Lifebloom tracker. I like to keep my lifebloom mod in a slightly different place and usually make it pretty big so I know to keep track of it. Here's Lifebloom tracker

Here is an example of my Druids weak auras string.

I personally like to keep all my information in one place, right beside my character. I use healbot, which is right above my weak aura string so that I get all the information I need without having to scan around the screen for this or that. Doing this helps with several important aspects.
1. I can see what spells are available while keeping a close eye on my healing frames.
2. Since everything is pulled up close to my character, I can not only see if I'm standing in some unsavory crap but I can keep a close eye on the boss, adds, and the general movement of the entire raid.

And here is a quick vid on weak auras in action
