Grid + GridStatusRaidDebuff > Vuhdo
1-30-2010 @ 8:10PM
Here's a perfectly good comment that doesn't need to be rated down. It's not inflammatory and it isn't trolling.I for one agree. Grid + Gridstatusraiddebuff seems better. But I haven't used Vuhdo.Instead of just voting this down, how about someone respond with a worthwhile comparison of the two? I for one would greatly like to see a reason to switch.

Out of the box, no, not at all. There are so many features that Vuhdo has by default that you need to download another addon and then configure correctly to get Grid to do it nearly as well. Grid allows you to get into the greater detail of the settings, but is much easier to break.

I've used VuhDo for some time now and love it.Here is a full screen shot of VuhDo incorporated into a UI.http://ia341339.us.archive.org/1/items/azzanewui/AZZANEWUI.jpg

damn you steampunk how dare you have a different opinionRATE DOWN

Getting a healing UI is like buying new shoes. You can say that X shoe brand is always better, but it may not "fit" other people the way that it fits you.

I think it's more likely he's being rated down for making a baseless statement and offering nothing to indicate why he feels that way. What does Grid + any combination of it's 8,000 optional plugins and add-ons accomplish that you can't do with Vuhdo? Using Grid you may be able to eventually achieve the same effect, but only after you've found the right plugins, made sure they're updated, and configured them all. The most fun part is on and after patch day waiting and hoping that the authors of all those plugins will be quick with the updates. One big advantage Vuhdo offers to me is the vast options to customize the appearance. I've fully customized my UI and it's important that everything fit into it's place, be functional, and be aesthetically pleasing. I never found a way to accomplish that with Grid or Healbot or X-Perl or sRaidframes. Some are functional, some look nice, some are highly extendable/customizable, but only Vuhdo is all of those things.

Listen, Phil. Buddy. Pal. Champ.There is something I feel I ought to tell you, because you don't seem to be capable of getting it on your own. No one cares.Your little fingerquotes "rebellion" fighting the Wow.com "Man" is quite frankly getting old and I promise you accomplishes nothing. People aren't looking at your post and thinking 'Wow. How bold. How profound this little guy is, standing up for no good reason. Man, I wish I was an Internet activist too'No, the vote you down, kick your post in a hole, and go on their merry way.Perhaps you're just a bit misguided as to WHY the initial post was downvoted, hmm? Firstly, it had zero positive influence on the story at hand while also utterly -failing- to stand for an argument as to WHY Grid>Vuhdo. Second, as was pointed out with sensible evidence in an immediate reply that Grid is in fact not better, and said in a much less demeaning tone.To sum up, stop wasting precious Internet pixels, go make friends with anaughtybear and e-rage somewhere else.

Sorry Philip. I didnt rated it down because he disagreed with the blogger. Not because "I like this addon over grid and im fanboy". But because he didnt give ANYTHING to the discussion. He didnt explain why he likes 2 addons over 1. He didnt give anything to enforce hes opinion.So for me he could've just say "lololololol" and I would get same amount out of that comment than "addon + addon > this addon".

@toddcore,That out of the box trifecta costs you in terms of overall control and footprint. Yes, grid requires additive features to do the rest but that's the point: add what features you want and add to your footprint AS YOU CHOOSE.
1-30-2010 @ 7:26PM
Another thing to add. His comment wasn't stated as an opinion. It was stated as a fact."I prefer grid" - opinion"Grid is better" - factWhen ANYONE states their opinion as a fact, all they're doing is annoying those that disagree. He's not opening up a debate, he's walking into a room, telling everyone they're wrong then walking off again.Who is that useful to? How does that prove that grid is better?If he said, "Grid is better for me because suchasuch", people wouldn't rate him down because he's not having a negative affect to the discussion.Personally, both grid and vuhdo are pointless to me because of a highly customisable UI mod and some simple macros, but I'm always on the looking out for something better. Saying something as pointless as Steampunk did offers me NO information on this. So why bring it up?

Listen JC. Pal. Buddy. Champ.Did you enjoy your RATE DOWN?The stuff readers do on this site to discourage any critical thinking is worth bringing attention to. Most forums encourage various viewpoints, no matter how trifling or silly they may seem. Those forums are often NOT moderated by every person who visits, either.While you may be content to have your brain fed with whatever tripe the fanboys are dishing out today, others seek both critical and prismatic viewpoints. Even you JC, lil buddy pal and champ, got the RATE DOWN for trying to be witty with me. And you know why? All you had to do was ignore what I said if you didn't agree with it.Looking forward to my nextRATE DOWNfor pointing out how simple-minded people can be when encountering opposite views that may or may not be phrased in the manner THEY deem worthy.

you mad, brah?
1-31-2010 @ 1:15AM
I think what I'm enjoying about this discussion is Philip coming off like some kind of celebrity with his RATE DOWNthing...See, now I'm not even sure if I did that right; can you use it in the middle of a sentence? Philip?Anyways, I'm aware and sorry I fed the troll and in the futureRATE DOWNdamnit the button is stuck now...RATE DOWNgah...
1-31-2010 @ 2:17AM
It was down rated because he didnt make the comparison. not because he was just dumb.A question about VudHo, is there a way to save button configurations? for example its a pain when switching from holy to disc to change all my button mapouts

I've tried both Grid and VuhDo, and I have to respectfully disagree with you. I MUCH prefer VuhDo. I HATE the little boxes that Grid uses - I'm a very visual person, so I much prefer the little icons I can have with VUhDo.It all comes down to a matter of personal preference. IMO VuhDo > Grid by a LONG shot.
1-31-2010 @ 3:40AM
I have used healbot for a very long time and the functionality of does look about the same. Personally, Grid is a pain to set up and it breaks frequently so I never was a convert of that UI. I would also like to know what makes Vuhdo superior to Healbot because the UI's look very similar and I did not see anything in the authors write up that distinguished a difference between the two. Is the addon less memory intensive? Does it have functionality that Healbot does not? @ Punk Unix's file structure and realiability is said to be superior to Windows, but people would rather use Gui vice command line. What makes Grid superior to Vuhdo and Healbot?
1-31-2010 @ 5:33AM
Well ... I for one find Vuhdo's configuration dialog impossible to work with. While, yes, Vuhdo is nicer out of the box, it simply cannot compare to Grid when it's about personalizing what you see, where you see it and when you see it.Personally, I use Grid + GridStatusRaidDebuff + Click2Cast (Clique works well, too). Once you set everything up it's nice and clean, and you can be sure to have mana bars where they belong, have icons for lifebloom that are still visible and you can tell apart if it's one or three stacks (when I tried Vuhdo, that one was a killer. It just didn't work with my hots at all). My setup: http://www.abload.de/image.php?img=wowscrnshot_010110_215ewjz.jpg

STOP FEEDING THE DAMN TROLL!!!!All they are after is attention so dont reply to their comments and it will annoy them more than ever, actually talking to them is giving them what they want and so so SO many have fallen for it here.
1-31-2010 @ 8:47AM
I'm interested to hear any feedback on how intensive Vuhdo is on system resources. Does it require more to run than Grid?I can heal just fine without Grid, but it is the one addon that doesn't make me lose a single frame in Dalaran, or when the AOE starts on the whelps in Ony 25, so I choose to use it.Anyone have any feedback on this?
