It’s been a while since I’ve updated my official user interface package, and while there aren’t a ton of major changes I have made a few adjustments and additions since my last iteration.
For those of you that have been around the site for any stretch of time then you know I’m a minimalist. I like my addons to help me play the gamer better, not play the game for me. So if you’re looking for some massive package, sorry, you probably won’t find what you’re looking for here.

Zug Gaming User Interface Explained
AG Unit Frames
So let’s go through the basics, I use AG unit frames for all my frames. It’s very simple to setup and uses almost no memory. There’s tons of functionality in the addon if you choose to use it, personally I’ve chosen to leave it fairly close to stock settings, simply removing buffs on my target’s target / focus’ target bar, bumping the scale on all my frames to 170%, and adjusting some colors and other minor issues.
Quartz Casting Bars
I use quartz for casting bars, once again there’s a lot of functionality in this addon should you choose to use it, but for me I’ve left it very simple. I simply bumped the size and positioned each casting bar in such a way that I can easily differentiate between them, particularly the focus frame up top. I’ve had it in a variety of locations around my screen and always found it works best up top. There’s nothing else up at the top of my screen for this reason, which is why using focus macros (particularly on my shaman) has become a very large part of my PvP strategy.
Most of the other addons and u.i. elements are fairly self explanatory. I move all the SCT frames to the far right so they don’t block my character view, I have proximo visible above the focus frame when I’m in an arena match, and finally I use OmniCC for watching cooldown timers on abilities / buff / debuffs.
In the past I’ve used bongos, which I believe is called dominos now, to handle my action bars. But in all honesty I just don’t think they are all that helpful anymore, especially considering the number of alts I’d have to set it up for. By simply setting up a U.I. scale of .64 in the blizzard default interface the default bars are quite minimal and really don’t bother me enough to go back to an action bar mod.

Optional Addons Used
Well, in my continual effort to do ridiculous things on Friday night in World of Warcraft I decided to organize the very first 40 man rogue raid on Alterac Valley. The raid went better than I could have ever imagined. It took about 40 minutes to find enough rogues to fill the slots, but once we had Smolderthorn’s finest together we rolled out for glory.
While there was some initial doubt amongst the ranks that we could actually win without any healers, these fears were immediately put to rest. We successfully played 2 AVs as a group and won both! Make sure to check out the video below for the hilarious exploits!
- Rhapsody – Dawn of Victory
- AG Unit Frames
- Preform AV Enabler
Zuggy 2 – Return of the Troll…
This is my 2nd arena video and features myself in all 3 arena brackets. The footage showcases clips from my rogue / priest 2v2 team, rogue / mage / priest 3v3 team, and rogue / hunter / elemental shaman / druid / priest 5v5 team.
All clips were filmed at or above 2300 rating during season 3.

Other U.I. notes, because several people asked this question about my last video. The large bar which shows cast bars towards the middle of my screen is a focus casting bar. You can see the focus frame to the left of my screen.
I use it to watch for incoming crowd controls / heals so I can adjust before they land.
