    Default UI Question: How many visible action buttons/slots do you need?

    I feel like every few years I pare mine down in a great UI sweep but then impatiently turn back on a couple of bars as needed and things get cluttered again.

    At this point I'm back up to two full action bars (including the one with the basic 1-12 keybinds... although usually some of that is taken over by isboxer I do like SOMETHING that works to do attacking on those bars for when I'm not logged into the correct toon but nevertheless have to kill off a mob or two--like when i'm doing pet dailies), one hidden action bar with teleports/consumables, and one floating semi transparent bar that I seem to have visible... for professions? Yes, despite writing that snazzy tutorial on creating a professions wheel menu in isboxer several years ago, I mostly open mine manually these days.

    I like to keep some clickable tom tom macros, quest specific stuff, and big cooldowns visible (let's be honest, I'm not setting up fancy weak auras for 10,000 alts I'm not raiding on).

    How many visible action buttons do you keep in your UIs?

    Since the launch of Legion and the great skill pruning I've cut down a lot. I have 36 slots visible but often have many unused depending on the class.

    Here's a recent screenshot:

    Depends on what I'm running. For mixed teams I rarely have any visible action bars. I track CDS through addons so I don't see why I would need any. For teams consisting of only one class I run some bars. I only really have things with CDs visible though... No need to see Moonfire on my bars since it's always castable and I know the bind.

    That's kind of what I try to do with my UI now. If it does not tell you something you need to know, hide it.

    I've been using this layout for years now, for all of my characters.




    There are four empty buttons and several things hidden behind modifier macros.

    Your WASD is taken, I am hardcoded into using it as my movement keys and I know it's inefficient. What do you use to move? Both left/right mouse click hold?

    If you're referring to my post/picture, I use ESDF for movement keys.
