The Priest In Question

UI Woe... Nah, now I'm just lazy.

As "requested" by The Mana Battery Bitch, here's some pics of my crappy UI.

Here's my general UI setup. I had to turn on Pitbull's config mode to get the raid bars to show since I don't have any SS's from raids yet.

And here's a shitty texture I made to go behind the bars:

Yeah. Really shitty, I know. Basically, I had this grand idea for what I'd be doing, and it mutated in my head as I was drawing stuff and kind of got lost in the middle when I was having troubles getting the textures to show up in game. Overall, I'm scrapping the whole "lightning and steel" idea because it's way beyond my ability to work with. I was messing around earlier looking at PS tutorials and I'm pretty sure I'm going to start working on a dual- or tri-color "futuristic" layout. Like grey and dark red or blue in long, solid panels. I dunno, I haven't started on it. Theres a big difference between making a simple but good looking website and a useful WoW UI, so I'm really out of it here.

Here's me shooting skulls at things while I powerlevel my mining:

But yeah, levelling mining is BORING.

Hmmm, it looks pretty alien to me. But then again I don't have a proper raid setup yet, I'm using my standard UI (where only FuBar and Bartender3 are altering things, really) with the standard group setup dragged onto the screen.

All in all, I have 5 rows of buttons and an extra one for boosting that I turn on when necessary (different ranks of SW:P). I simply can't understand why all these people can live with just 2-3 rows!

5 Rows? Holy hell.

Wait? I have four and am occasionally finding things I'm missing? Daaaaaaangit.

Yeah, I used to use that Crysolis remake for priests for all my buffs and rezzes, but I haven't re-downloaded it yet. Procrastination for the fail.

I have 2 full bars hotkeyyed and only display them on screen so I can change them on the fly if I need to. The other 2 are clicked, and I want to replace some of those buttons with macros to cover two spells. Like Left Click for Mind Vision, Right Click for Mind Soothe.
