Alacran’s Resto Shaman Healer UI
Today I’d like o continue yesterdays post of search terms here on SitBC. Week after week this search term keeps popping up on the site stats tab:

I didn’t talk about my resto shaman user interface yesterday because I wanted to dedicate today’s post to it.
Some people have been curious as to what mine looks like. Enjoy!
Alacran’s Resto Shaman UI – 800×600
I play with 1 GB Ram and don’t use a dedicated video card and it works great for me. I mean, seriously, what’s so hard about clicking on some little boxes? As a resto shaman, you don’t need a metric ton of graphic power – just hover mouse cursor over box and click mouse binding for Chain Heal.
So I went a little overboard on my screen resolution. I say that because it’s a little more taxing on the system but at the same time it gives me plenty of screen space to have all of my information clumped everywhere on the screen: 800×600.
If you turn down the video settings as low as possible, you can get a whole 3 FPS in 10′s raids. (note: 3 max not min.) The disc priest I run with has a Pain Suppression macro with my name on it so there isn’t a problem. I also use GTFO addon and what might be lagging to my eyes gets picked up quickly by the ears. People yelling at me on vent helps my reaction time, too. I can usually backpeddle out of anything in time to not die. If not, that’s why Shaman have Ankh and druids have Innervate and Battle Rez. They are meant to be used.
This screenshot was from pre-launch. You can see – Power Auras, Bartender, Grid, Shields Up, Totem Timers, Shaman Friend, Quartz, DBM and Titan Panel. In this heroic dungeon, at rest, I was pushing 15 FPS! WoW! But who needs that many?
Here’s my healer tip of the week:
The less you spend on your hardware the more money you’ll have to buy your other raid consumable: Tequila.
