Addon Spotlight: Patch 4.3 news, fixes, and troublemakers

Each week, WoW Insider's Mathew McCurley brings you a fresh look at reader-submitted UIs as well as Addon Spotlight, which focuses on the backbone of the WoW gameplay experience: the user interface. Everything from bags to bars, buttons to DPS meters and beyond -- your addons folder will never be the same.

After a fairly smooth patch launch, Hour of Twilight is in full swing, with players Raid Findering and getting ready for the Darkmoon Faire. On the whole, patch 4.3 did not give us many of the UI errors and mishaps we've come to expect from a big patch such as Hour of Twilight, but there were some bumps along the road.

Most players' concerns were dealt with by clicking that magic little box, Load Out of Date Addons, found at the top right-hand corner of the addon menu at character select. By choosing to load out-of-date addons, you let the game bypass restrictions and let addons that probably don't have any problems continue running in the new patch 4.3 environment. If your game isn't loading, turn off your addons and load only a few at a time until you find the culprit. There are a few specific addons that were causing people trouble, so check them out below if you've still got some problems.

Remember, update your addons first! OK, now you can continue reading.

Addon Spotlight: Updated UI packages for 4.0.1

Each week, WoW Insider brings you a fresh look at reader-submitted UIs as well as Addon Spotlight, which focuses on the backbone of the WoW gameplay experience: the user interface. Everything from bags to bars, buttons to DPS meters and beyond -- your addons folder will never be the same. This week, overhaul it all with some updated UI compilations.

As the addon community settles in to patch 4.0.1, and all of Azeroth and beyond settles into getting rolled over by elementals, we still must press on here at Addon Spotlight. Many people email me each week and post in the comments about upgrading their user interfaces in one fell swoop, opposed to configuring addon by addon. UI packs are great for people who want the defined appearance of a unified user interface, but don't necessarily have the time or patience to achieve that result.

After 4.0.1, a lot of UI packs fell apart, mostly because some pieces of the included user interface fell apart. This week, Addon Spotlight picks a few of the complete UI overhauls that favor minimalism in their design. UI compilations are a good way to get your feet wet with ideas or concepts of UI design that might have not occurred to you otherwise. If a complete overhaul is what you're looking for, look no further. Well, look after the jump.
