• Raid Unitframes now also show empty slots and are properly ordered by group!
• Added Maintank Unitframes!
• Nearly all fonts now have an option for automatic player class colors

• Improved Fonts Section in the Unitframe "All" options
• Updated possible enchants for gear checking in armory module

• Totem Bar Icons now have an actual border (Configurable between class color and specific color)

• Changed castbar flash behaviour to an animation with configurable fade timings to improve the feeling of casts [Unitframes -> All -> Castbar]
• Added system that tracks all of your item counts and currencies across all characters! Counts are shown in item tooltips!
Gold also is tracked, so you don't need a bag AddOn for this - simply mouseover the money text in your vanilla bags!
• Added option to disable the entire actionbar module
• Added option to disable the entire unitframe module
• Added option to disable unitframe power bars
• Added option to fully customize the actionbar fading through macro conditionals [Actionbars -> Bar -> Fading -> Behaviour -> Custom]

• Added Titan Residuum and Echoes of Ny'alotha Reward Amount to the Mythic Plus Frame. On Mouseover, you're also shown the amount of rewarded currency for up to level 25. This feature depends on data from the community and most likely will take some time to be fully up to date in the future, if there's currency being rewarded.
• Added Tooltip Background Color option (Instead of just an Alpha Slider)
• Added Option to disable the Tooltip Module completely. This option does NOT require an reload!
• Added Option to change the "SpellQueueWindow" CVar. This allows you to change the time of how long WoW does queue clicked/used spells to chain them together. By adjusting this value, players can change how combat feels overall and allows for more control in some instances. Option located in Actionbars->All
• Added Option (Default: Enabled) that automatically reverts all CVar changes, CUI has made during it's runtime, when the AddOn is being unloaded by the Game Client [Global -> Revert CVars on Shutdown]

• [Devs Only] Added API for easy Item Tooltip Scanning. See Modules/Core/TooltipScanning.lua




• Resolved an Extra Actionbutton tainting issue, which led to it not showing up
• Experimental Fix for Error when opening the Mover/Anchor mode. Will have to monitor this change, as it potentially could cause taint issues

• Item Ref Tooltips (From Chats) no longer should snap to the tooltip anchor point
• Fixed Tooltip background randomly being in an blue-ish color
• Fixed Tooltip border rapidly changing color on the first few frames after it shows up
• Fixed an issue that would cause power bars to not being updated properly on death or revival

• Fixed Mover positioning issues due to scaling
• Fixed Totem Bar Timer behaviour when the time goes below 0
• Fixed Actionbar Cooldown Text still being shown when the cooldown already finished
• Fixed Autoseller for situations where lots of items are vendored at once. Before, there would occur an error, that interferes with the selling process.

• Fixed actionbar cooldown being displayed twice when the Blizzard Option for Button Countdowns is enabled
• Fixed visual actionbar issues when not using Masque

Currently planned for Core

  • A unit classification texture for an actual visual representation of elites, bosses and rares [Like the default UI ones]
  • [...] And way more [...]


Most of those below are way beyond the planned core functionality of this AddOn, as they are really ambitious, so there will be no TBA! 

But they for sure will just come when the core is finished!



  • Create your own custom unitframes on the fly
  • Also custom layout-frames with custom behaviour and functions
  • A music player system with custom conditionals
  • The option to stylize individual frames (even blizz ones!)
  • Adding custom textures and placing them anywhere you like
  • Options for round castbars
  • Personal optional notifications when something important happened [I.e.: A Tank dies in your raid group]
  • An optional performance optimizer (changes graphics settings according to a fps target and your average framerate over X seconds)


Currently known issues

• Group Unitframes sometimes show the wrong unit name/health/power data. Could not replicate yet, but is on critical watchlist
• The Unit Dummy mode somehow intereferes with the new group header system. This one's also categorized as critical. Please just use the separate "Toggle" button in the individual group unitframe options until it's fixed.
• Health Absorb does not differentiate between damage or heal absorb (Not a bug technically, just not implemented yet)



This AddOn still has a pretty good way to go until its core functionality is finished, so expect issues or missing options for things you'd like to change!

Also, i'm developing this AddOn on a 4K display. So most things are way too big for a Full HD monitor.

Until i can come up with a proper fix for this, you have to deal with it one time and set everything up (profile).
