The WoW Community

Following on from my last post, where I made some comments about no longer being happy with my UI, I received a number of suggestions from people as to what would be a better alternative, but one person in particular, who I don't personally know offered to help from WOW! This Game is Hard!

Now we follow each other on twitter, I read his website, and have him in my links, and he returns the favour, but he offered despite living on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean and having a time difference of 5 hours to talk to me on vent and help me completely reset my UI.

We talked back and forth, and finally met on vent last night and he spent a good couple of hours talking me through every single part of the setup. (I did cheat and get my husband to actually do it for me though!)

It has completely shocked me how welcoming, friendly and helpful the WoW community of players are in general. I started blogging my way through the game and started a Twitter account, and despite not blogging about anything of any use in-game, people are still reading this, still commenting, and still helping. I can post a question on twitter and within minutes have half a dozen answers to my query, but I never expected that someone, would give up hours of their time to help a complete stranger, and a new player.

I have to say that I am extremely grateful to this guy for helping me out! I took all his suggestions and then tweaked things to suit me. I haven't had a chance to run an instance yet with the new setup, but I'm really looking forward to it, now that things are so much calmer on my screen. I'm sure it will take some time to get used to, but it will definitely benefit me in the long run!

So without further ado, here is the unveiling of my new UI. I will make sure to get some shots of it in action too, and Thanks once again Gramaton!

The small buttons I did through bartender, the grid is vuhdoo. took me a while to get used to it, but i really like it and its great as it'll show me when im using certain spells etc. The buffs are elkano buff bar. Everything can be got from Curse.
