ElvUI Progressive DataBars

The default DataBars (XP, Honor, Artifact, Reputation) in ElvUI are visually boring, so spice them up! This plugin should work with most ElvUI plugins, but if it doesn't, file a bug report via the link below.


ElvUI_ChatTweaksContinued is NOT compatible. The problem is entirely on their side. I have reported the issue, but they choose to ignore it.

The XP DataBar:
