This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.


GlanceStatusText is a lightweight extension to Blizzard's default unit frames. Its main feature allows for status text to be displayed as numerical values and percentages in a clean, concise manner. Currently, the default unit frames show unnecessary information while taking up valuable space on the health and power bars. GlanceStatusText seeks to simplify the status text by removing the maximum health and power on the unit frames but keeping the current values and percentages enabled by default.

GlanceStatusText currently modifies the following status text areas:
  • Player unit frame
  • Target unit frame
  • Focus unit frame

In addition, the rounding and simplification of numbers has been altered in order to deliver only key information to the player. For example, 85,120 health is not rounded by the default unit frames; however, with GlanceStatusText, it is rounded to a more digestible value, depending on the options enabled: 85 K or 85.1 K.

Upcoming Features

  • Character absorption value, located in the middle of the modified health bar
  • Modified pet and party unit frames
  • More accessible options
