Addon update! Serenity is dead, JS is back!

It looks like Serenity is no longer being developed—the addon is completely gone from Curse now. But the good news is, about a month ago JS came back to WoW and started back with development of the original JS Hunter Bar!

JS posted this comment on the addon’s page a couple weeks ago:

I left Serenity in other people’s hands when i stopped playing.

When i got back, I did not want to interfere with their work, if they decide to continue.

Also, Serenity has had issues with the curse downloader and conflicts with an old (dead) priest addon.

JSHB was the logical choice for which I maintain.

I for one am thrilled JS is back, he’s the original developer of this all-in-one hunter addon and Flippy did a great job maintaining it for the last year while JS was gone, but it’s awesome to have the original dev working on it again. Welcome back to the game, JS! We missed you!

You can download JS Hunter Bar on curse here:

Old news, but it’s new to me… I only just noticed this thanks to one of my followers, Mistressmorbid. Thanks a ton for the heads up! I’ve edited my 5.0 post to include this new information.

My UI: Hunter setup

Hunter 101: Setting up your UI

Having a clean, efficient UI is important for more than just having your game look pretty while you play. A good UI set up helps you filter out unnecessary information so you can concentrate on what you need to know in order to maximize your performance.

I’m going to explain not only how I set up my UI, but why I have it set up this way. All the screenshots in this post link to full size (2474 x 1392) versions so you can clearly see my setup.
