- Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to import my entire interface
First, a disclaimer: My interface was designed to work with a 1920×1080 resolution. Most of it will probably work with a different resolution, but you will definitely have to move some things around, and I won’t be able to assist you. I also cannot promise to keep my entire set of addons up to date for all future patches. I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the functionality of every addon, so that in case I ever quit playing, you aren’t stuck with a buggy or broken interface.
- Close out World of Warcraft completely.
- Make a backup copy of your World of Warcraft\WTF and World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns folders. You’ll want to do this in case you encounter any issues when installing my interface, or overwrite something that you wish you had kept. Store the backup copies on your desktop or somewhere else safe.
- Download this zip file and extract it into your World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns folder. Once extracted, your folder hierarchy should look like World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\ActionBarSaver (make sure that you don’t have a folder named “veevs-addons”).
- Download this zip file and extract it into your World of Warcraft\Interface folder.
- Locate your saved variables folder. The exact file path will depend on your account name, but mine is located here: World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\84690431#1\SavedVariables . Download and extract this zip file into that folder.
- Load up World of Warcraft but do not log into your character yet. Once at the character screen, open the addons window, select “All” in the top left, and then disable the following addons: Tidy Plates Hub , Tidy Plates: Graphite , Tidy Plates: Grey Theme , Tidy Plates: Neon Theme , and Tidy Plates: Quatre Theme .
- Check “Load out of date AddOns” in the top right. Many addons will appear to be outdated but still work perfectly fine (this goes for future patches as well). Click “Okay” and then log in to your character.
- A window will pop up, asking you if want to set your default theme to Threat Plates. Click “Yes“.
- Type “/bt” and click “Profiles” in the bottom left. Under “Existing Profiles”, choose “Default”.
- Type “/tidyplates” and make sure both your primary and second specs are set to “Threat Plates”.
- Hit escape to open up Blizzard’s options. Go to Interface > Game > Combat. Under “Cast Bars”, enable the following: “On Targets”, “On Nameplates”, and “Show Spell Name”. Disable: “Only Current Target”.
- Go to Interface > Game > Names. Select “Stacking” for “Nameplate Motion Type”, and uncheck “Guardians” in the bottom right.
- Go to Interface > Game > Buffs and Debuffs. Turn on “Show All Enemy Debuffs”.
- Type “/dfilter”, go to “Profiles”, and select “Default” under “Existing Profiles”.
- If you wish to copy my chat box position or key bindings, you may use this screenshot as a guide. To change key bindings, type “/bt” and click “Key Bindings” in the top right.
And that should complete the installation. You may also right click your target frame, go to “Move Frame” and enable “Buffs On Top” if you wish.
PlateBuffs (/pb) is setup to show all of your debuffs on enemy nameplates by default. You may like this functionality, but I prefer to only show important debuffs (e.g., on a warrior, I’d manually hide debuffs like Deep Wounds and Physical Vulnerability). To hide a debuff, type “/pb”, go to “Specific Spells”, type the exact spell name in the box at the top, click “Okay”, and then click “Add spell”. Then find the spell in the list, and change the dropdown to “Never”. You may want to beat on a training dummy for a bit to see if any debuffs are showing up that you don’t consider crucial information.
The PlateBuffs profile that comes with my SavedVariables is only setup for warriors. If you play a caster, you will want to have very different settings. E.g., on my warrior, I don’t display Cloak of Shadows, but I would obviously want to on a caster. You will have to set that up on your own.
If you run into any issues with this installation, please understand that I do not have the time to troubleshoot for you. Either consult the author of whichever addon is giving you trouble, or seek help from fellow Twitch viewers.
