Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.1 (2013); IceHUD
Hello! I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium. I hope my granddaughter treated you well last week while I was away.
This week we’re going to look at IceHUD. I am very fond of this heads-up display because of the name, but unfortunately it has nothing to do with me. What is a heads-up display, you ask? It is, in this case, a method of moving the most important data items to the center of your playing screen without obscuring the action of your toon or of the enemy. IceHUD does this very well, showing you player and target health and mana bars, casting bars, pet health and mana bars, and much more in a graphical way so that you need never look away from the fight to find out if you have enough chi for that blackout kick, or if you should interrupt the boss’s cast.
IceHUD has lots of different bar shapes and patterns so you can make it look like you want it to look, and class-specific modules for rogues, druids, paladins, warlocks, etcetera.
You can find IceHUD on Curse.

If you have a favorite add-on you’d like covered, (and it’s not still in beta) just drop me an email at Icesnake DOT 1950 AT gmail DOT com
If I review it, you’ll get a shout-out on the segment!
