Help! I can't keep my eyes off my action bar! lol xP
Return to board index
Seriously...it's all I can focus on! I'm constantly watching my action bar to see when my cool downs are up.
I LOVE tanking, but it's incredibly hard doing so when I'm not watching what's going on around me cause I'm so focused on my action bar.
I haven't played wow in a couple of years and had real issues with it back then...I'm now leveling another character (brewmaster monk) and though I'm trying hard to force myself to keep my eyes off the action bar...I'm finding it incredibly difficult to break my old habits.
Anyone else have this problem?
Any tips on what I can do? I really feel I can play this game so much more effectively if only I could keep my dang eyes off the action bar! lol
a few things will help.
I had the same problem myself so i got an addon called IcyHud puts your heals/mana/recources right in front of me. i then played with my key binding till i found something that worked that i didnt have to look down but at the same time i knew naturally where it was. also try a cooldown timer and place it mid screen that should help. over time it will become natural
Try displaying the cooldowns you care about with something like TellMeWhen (
). Took a screenshot to show you how I have it set up:
TMW are the icons around the middle of my screen, well within the are I'm normally looking at when playing.
Action bars partially faded out, TellMeWhen configured to display the things I've put there only while I'm in combat (displaying icons when a cooldown is ready but you can go about that in several different ways and attach quite a lot of different conditions to how and when to display things). The vertical bar on the left is also a cooldown timer that covers ~everything that goes by the name of ForteXorsist (
) but I mainly use it as a general reference and not an "alert" like the things I've made TMW display.
Thanks a lot guys.
Been toying around with addons (had to reinstall all my addons after installing pandaria) and am getting much closer to a U.I. that I'm more comfortable with which is helping...thanks for the suggestion on TellMeWhen Izichial!
It's all about me just learning my toon. Learning his abilities, cooldowns, and animations. I just need to force myself to stop focusing so much on the action bars. I'll get there eventually lol...just a bit frustrating!
