With the upcoming patch 10.1 for WoW: Dragonflight, the developers are expanding the customization options for the user interface. This means that interface add-ons should be even less necessary for some players.
WoW: Dragonflight brought us the biggest interface overhaul since the release of the Blizzard MMORPG, and with it came the introduction of a detailed interface editor. This allows the user interface to be adapted to our wishes without any add-ons. For example, where we want skills placed in the picture, how big the windows for enemy life points are and which elements we don’t want to see at all.
But the developers are not done with this feature yet! Accordingly, the upcoming WoW (buy now ) Patch 10.1 “Embers of Neltharion” will allow for additional options that will allow you to further customize your gaming experience. For example, change the size of the minimap or add an indication of the cast time to the interface when you cast a skill! All changes can be found below. (via Blizzard – PTR Patch Notes)
WoW Patch 10.1: Upcoming changes for the interface editor
- The cast bar now has an option to show cast time.
- The minimap can now be resized.
- The “Looking for Group” eye has been added to the micromenu frame and its size can be adjusted.
- Raid Frames now display more buffs based on the size of the frame, up to a maximum of 7 (was capped at 3).
- Frames should no longer drag other elements that are not manually attached to them.
- The experience and reputation bars have been renamed to the more generic status bars 1 and 2, but are still referred to as the experience bar for character leveling.
- Added a slash command to access edit mode: /editmode.
