Man that is insane. At least they use the same add on method so I dont have to learn anything new. I wish I had more time to play games. Maybe I will get a chance to log into RoM tonight

Same method, names and modders too. :-) Again, this shows me that there are WOW players AND members of the modding community who have enough interest in ROM to be developing these tools. It's not like they get paid for this work. They do this for games where they have a real interest. I think this game is going to surprise some nay-sayers in it's popularity.

Nice post!

Currently I have just added MatInfo to my UI for my harvesting and I started to play around with the macros a bit. XpExtended looks nice and AdBuffBars would be usedful for my priest side.

The BottomArt thing looks nice, but uses too much screen space for my taste. I also had a look at the HudBars, will probably start using also.

Given your key set-up, I guess you move around with the mouse exclusively?

@Sente - Thanks!

I agree that it takes up quite a bit of space. I'm hoping more options will come out after launch. What I find distracting is having nothing and the bottom acting as a bounding-box for my controls. in EQ2 you could turn on the wide-screen mode and letter box panels added, which I thought was perfect.

In WOW I used other things that aren't available yet but I'm sure they will be because I've already seen Discord conversations on the forums.

I really want HUD because I'm not used to managing rage and I find it awkward looking down to see if I have enough to cast. Once HUD either stops conflicting with gUnitFrames which are a must for me to move the portraits and stops it's own bug with the portrait stuck at the top, I'll be using it.

I use the arrow keys to move while my left hand is positioned left side for combat. I have strafing on PgUp and PgDn but I rarely play classes that requires a lot of strafing. WAR and AOC being the exceptions where the base combat mechanics necessitated strafe.

Another nice write up, Saylah!!! Thanks for the addon tips, I am using the majority of the ones you mentioned and love them. Hudbar is still not working correctly though. Also, the patch is working nicely, no bugs or glitches, and my UI remained the same (why can't Blizzard get that right????).

In Blizzard's defense they have add-ons using hooks into gaming mechanics. What we mostly have for ROM right now are just cosmetic treatments which stay pretty stable.
