My Shaman UI + Keybinds

I’ve done a keybinding post for both my Warrior and my Death Knight, so it’s time to post one for my Shaman.  I’m going to add my newly finished UI to this post as well, because I finally found a custom UI I like and I wanted to share.

The UI

As you can see in the picture above, I have my bars set up so that my three primary bars are front and center with my totem bar above them.  Then I have my peripheral abilities to the right by my bags.


  • Pitbull – For me,my target and a few others.
  • Titanbar – For general info such as Location, Gold, Durability, Performance, etc.
  • Sexymap – Map mod, just for pretties.
  • Power Auras – All the graphics around my character. I LOVE this addon, I’ve got it set to show me an icon when Riptide is available, when Tidal Waves is active (and how many stacks), when my Triumph Totem procs and also to show me when Earth Shield & Water Shield AREN’T active.
  • Grid – for my raid & party frames, with addons I’ll discuss later.
  • Sunnart Viewport – Resizes my playable area and makes that nice console area at the bottom.
  • Pratt – Chat Mod (everyone seems to have this, not sure what it’s doing for me)
  • Bartender – action bar mod, allows me to move them, add more & keybind.
  • Recount – DPS Meter
  • Omen – Threat Meter (I stack Recount & Omen and only show Recount out of combat and Omen in combat)
  • MSBT – Scrolling Battle Text

*Grid is very configurable.   I’m using an addon to put numbers in the corners as shown above.  I also have Grid set up to give me an icon when a debuff I can remove is on the target and a little dot when there’s a buff I can’t remove on the target.  When someone has aggro their border glows red.

The Keybinds

Alt 5 – Mana Tide Totem

Assorted Other Keybinds

The biggest thing I probably need to do is put my heals on mouseover macros, although I’m not sure whether or not I want to go that route or not.  I suppose it would save a split second on each heal since I don’t have to click, but I feel like I’m doing fairly well as it is.

Comments, suggestions or critiques?

  1. I’ll check tonight, I think it’s like GridIndicatorText or something like that. When you search Grid a bunch of other addons pop up, I just read through all the ones that looked like they might be helpful.

  2. wow macros and keybindings addon…
