My original Grid post has gotten a lot of hits and I hope it’s helped a lot of people. Now that Vuhdo is more popular I’ve decided to make a post on setting it up too. The switch by major raiders to Vuhdo happened a while ago, but a lot of people don’t want to part with the time they have put into customizing grid. I can honestly say, it’s worth it. Vuhdo has everything Grid has but more in a single addon. Yes, everything. It has everything HB has also. It can be set up the exact same way if you wish, but adds MANY things that resto druids can use and use well. The set up is much easier in general, and changing things per fight is a lot easier too.
The 1st thing I like more about Vuhdo is the hot timers. Instead of little dots on the sides that change colors, you can have bars. The bars are nicely spaced, colors chosen by you, so you can see exactly how much time you have left. While corner dots that change colors are fine, the bars are a lot easier to quickly look and judge, which is why more endgame druids use it. You can use the same exact set up as HB or Grid, but I’d suggest doing a raid with the bars and see how it works for you.
All hots together:
You can change the overheal bar to not show, or show pretty much anywhere else you want it to be.
The basic options layout, where you size your buttons, bars, gaps, everything. You can make this look exactly like grid or HB too. Mine looks a lot like my grid, but a little different.
Where you choose your mouse clicks:
Choose the colors:
If you do want corner hots, like grid, this is where you do it. I did LB only so I could see the number of stacks and how many are left:
Hot bars: You can choose which hots you want and in what order, and where on your bar you want them:
I don’t personally use this, but it’s an easy buff bar to show when people need buffs and to easily do them. You can choose to show whos missing the buffs, how much time is left, pretty much anything you can think of.
And last, all the different bars. Lots of different options for this too. This is something very cool that differs from Grid. I haven’t used them yet since I don’t really have time to mess with it. But if you have a ton of time, it’s nice to look through and see what you’d need or like.
As you can see, it’s a LOT less explaining than Grid since it’s so much more self explanatory. Those are the main things I remember changing and messing with. If you do end up switching, esp as a resto druid, you wont regret it. People like to use the excuse “but I like my grid”. Well, that doesn’t really work here since it gives you every single thing grid does plus more, like said. My two favorites is SMable targets(shows everyone who can be SMd without tracking their hots), and cluster finder. It finds the best people to hit with WG by itself to get max heal output. In intense 25 fights, this is very useful.
