New Holy Power UI

Postby Phonic » Sat Aug 14, 2010 1:54 am

From MMO champ...

Boring IMO, could have made it look cooler. Guess we'll have to rely on addons to freshen it up.

It could be worse...it's could be combo points.

I'm not sure what you expected here. I think it looks fine. My only gripe is that the default unitframes suck anyway, so I'd be skinning it with SuF anyway.

Yeah, pretty much. It's about as serviceable as DK runes on the default frames, which is to say that most people will never see them once addons are working.

This looks way better than Death Knight runes on live.

I'd say it fits well with a good cross between looking good and being functional. Each individual Holy Power you get is clearly separated (with even the art for each segment looking notably different), and it even glows when your Holy Power is full as a clear sign that now's a good idea to spend it.

Obviously most people will be replacing it with a custom UI, but that default UI implementation is very functional, which in turn is pretty important for an actual new player picking up the class.

It's on a chain, should have been some sort of libram imo. :P

I'll probably use an addon to keep track of it anyway.

It doesnt really matter that much, it looks nice and all but, noone is really going to use it.
Just like the runes for a DK 90% of the players use a proper addon to show it instead.
I am really interested in seeing HolyPower addons tho, since thats what most of us are going to be using anyway.

Meh. I'll just end up using power auras for it anyway.

Thats true, but i do wonder, is holy power still a buff we have and can see? that is showed in yet another way with this UI thingy?
Cuz it might very well be that we cant see the Holy Power buff as a buff.
I mean you cant see Runes for a DK on your buffbar.
I dont know how it will turn out, but people will no doubt make addons for it aswell.

this may be the first thing in the game that I feel I need power auras for. So far I've been flickering my eyes back and forth and trying to catch my floating combat text <Holy Power!> but it is entirely insufficient.

Actually, I figured out my big problem with HoPo as Ret is that too many things proc it unreliably. So I find myself mashing CS in anticipation of the GCD being up after hitting, say, Exorcism or Judgement, and then having the talent proc a HoPo into my bar which would change what I want to do to a Templar's Verdict (since I'm already at 3 HoPo) but instead the CS goes off, and I've wasted my HoPo generation. So I think having a big power auras graphic in front of me will help a lot for that, also I will have to back off on my keyspam a bit.

If the combat text had a numerical value, that'd help a bit too. All it says is Holy Power! which, unless you're actively counting, doesn't help much.

not so, Holy Power! indicates 3 stacks. Holy Power (without the !) is a 1 or 2 stack application.

I stick with the default UI. I have to say I like it. Much better than looking for the icon before.

Also, the consecrate "totem" circle still goes under your portrait, so it overlaps the 1st HoPo section of the bar. I wonder what they'll do there...
