Premium Addons

The first couple addons that will be mentioned are the premium addons that are exclusive to Skill Capped subscribers.

Plater

Our Premium Plater profile displays all effects applied on targets. This includes DoT effects, slows, maintenance debuffs on one row, and active enemy defensive cooldowns on a separate row featured above the nameplate. There is also a white border that is featured what targeting a player, making it easier to visualize what target you are currently on without having to look at your target player frame.

Class icons are above friendly nameplates. This makes it easy to know where your teammate is, and is especially beneficial for Healers. There is a combo point indicator underneath your enemy target, allowing you to see how many current combo points you have available. This profile also has the numbers 1, 2, and 3 above their nameplate, helping you know what enemy player will be affected by your arena 1, arena 2, and arena 3 macros.

Lastly, we also hide nameplates on minor annoyances.

OmniBar

For our customized OmniBar profile, we have created multiple categories of spells, making it easier to visually see spells grouped together that are either interrupts, defensive cooldowns, Crowd Control, and Crowd Control prevention.

Skill Capped UI – The Best Cataclysm Classic WoW PvP Addons - Skill Capped (7)

Our last category is our Crowd Control prevention spells, as the spells provided here will be used by enemy players to shut down any casted Crowd Control spell. This includes spells such as Grounding Totem, Spell Reflection, and even Dark Simulacrum. This category will be placed right above your control frame in Gladius.

OmniCD

For our last premium profile provided in our Skill Capped UI pack, this will track the most relevant cooldowns from yourself and allies. These relevant cooldowns will show PvP Trinkets, defensive cooldowns, and any major Crowd Control ability that their specialization offers.

Non-Premium Addons

For the rest of the addons, these will be available to anyone who installs the Skill Capped UI package, and will be customized and positioned to allow more optimization on how you can react to enemy players more effectively.

WeakAuras

For our first addon that is available when downloading our Skill Capped UI is WeakAuras, which includes a lot of customized features that make it easier to see major enemy cooldowns, buffs and debuffs, damage modifiers, and any missing class buffs in seperate sections and locations. There are additional WeakAuras included that provide notification with class buffs not active, and a Healer drink notification.

For our Skill Capped UI package, we have placed defensive buffs and offensive debuffs directly in the center of your character, allowing you to easily notice if you are safe, or that a lot of damage will be directed your way.

There also is a psuedo replacement for the Blizzard personal resource display in Retail. Cataclysm Classic does not have this implemented, making this extremely helpful to see your HP, Mana, and combo points.

Gladdy

For Gladdy, we have preserved the exact same functionality as the Gladius addon. Diminishing return categories are visible to the left of Health Bars, and any Crowd Control used is indicated on top of the class icon.

Shaman totem visibility has been increased, making it easier to target and kill off certain totems, including Grounding Totem, Tremor Totem, Healing Stream Totem, Spirit Link Totem, and Mana Tide Totem.

Diminish

This will show any Control Control DRs that are effecting your character. The DRs will be displayed on the top of your player frame. Having this displayed to you will help you know when it’s safe to push in without having to worry about being in control effects.

BigDebuffs

BigDebuffs is one of your most valuable addons to display buff and debuff effects to your character or allies. Skill Capped UI has increased the size of these important Crowd Control debuffs on your unit frames, making it more easier to visualize what is controlling your target.

For our Skill Capped UI, we have adjusted the size and number restriction in terms of other debuffs, and have increased the maximum buff limit to 6. This includes more buffs to be displayed on your unit frames, and will be very valuable for Healers.

We have also provided more visual clarity to our nameplates, as these will display active control and damage immunities to the right of the nameplate.

BuffOverlay

BuffOverlay will represent your specialization’s defensive cooldowns onto your unit frame, allowing you to see which party member on your team has the defensive cooldown been applied to.

EasyFrames

Easy Frames will display your class icon instead of your character portrait. As a minor added change to avoid any visual clutter, we have removed the hit indicator that is shown on your player frame.

Your player frame, focus frame, and target frame have increased Health bars, as well as a display of class colors. When looking at the target and focus enemy target frames, the size of buffs and debuffs have been scaled up slightly, and have made highlights over any dispellable buffs.

Loss of Control Alert

This provides a simple display that shows any active Crowd Control on your character directly in the center of your screen. This is not in the default UI for Cataclysm Classic as it is in Retail.

FrameSort

Having FrameSort automatically places your character at the bottom of your raid frames. This makes it easier to visually determine the number of your party member, and is specifically helpful when using your party1 and party2 macros.

BattlegroundTargets

This will be exclusively helpful when playing in either Random or Rated Battlegrounds, as this will help you to target enemy players anywhere on the map in any battleground.

Details

As one of our miscellaneous addons, the most iconic addon, Details, will be placed on the bottom left of your UI. This will allow you compare any specific damage and healing breakdowns, as well as checking death logs.

Bartender4

This addon is essential for key-bind and ability bar maintenance. We have designed our Bartender profile to represent retail’s default settings, as this includes the 5 main bars shown in our UI.

Also, we have placed bags and other additional buttons over onto the bottom right corner of the screen.

As Cataclysm Classic has not introduced a quick key-bind system, Bartender is equipped with this functionality, allowing you to customize your key-binds more easily.

If you want to maintain the classic feel while playing Cataclysm Classic, you can choose to disable this feature when importing our Skill Capped addon package.

CVar

For our last addon we have included in this package, these will be settings that have been automatically configured and imported into your UI. Some of these addons are completely hidden.

  • Your Spell Queue Window is set to your current Latency + 100. This adjusts the windows of your next predicted spell cast.
  • Provides an increase to the maximum camera distance, and sets camera to never adjust.
  • Your target of target is automatically enabled, and includes sticky targeting. Sticky targeting makes sure that you keep targeting and attacking a target if you accidentally mis-click on the ground.
  • Enables projected textures, as this will help you visually seeing any ground AoE spells, especially Ring of Frost.
  • Instant Quest Text enabled for leveling.
  • Auto Loot is automatically enabled in your settings.

With all of these addons imported directly into your World of Warcraft client, and requiring hours or even days to readjust the settings, our UI is custom build to give you everything you need in a matter of seconds. You can find our complete UI package that includes our revolutionary new addon right now at Skill-Capped.com. We’re offering adiscount linkwhen signing up, which includes a money back guarantee. If you don’t gain at least400 ratingwhile actively using our website, we will offer a full refund.
