Did you think that Vanilla, BC, Wrath, or even somehow Cata was the best expansion? Do you miss your old artwork that sat behind those cookie cutter talents? Well I'm here to bring that back!
Yes, that's right. I put in artwork in the specialization selection frame, the talent frame, and the PvP talent frame. I've used a mixture of artworks from Blizzard's concept art, partially out of context Guild Wars 2 art that still fit decently in, and Artifact Weapon backgrounds.
Why? I like seeing the default game be better. The talents are boring to look at. Sure, we look at them probably for a minimal amount of time, but we still look at them. I remember the epicness I felt of looking at a talent tree and seeing the artwork displayed in the background. I have fond memories of many of them, and there's no real reason to. So I thought maybe I can bring back some, if even a sliver of that nostalgic feel back into the game.
I've had this idea in my head for almost a year, but it wasn't until recently I took up deciding to learn lua and actually make this a reality. I feel very happy I was finally able to get this done.
To do list:
Possibly create better backgrounds for the PvP talent frame. Only a few notable specs differentiate from each other (fire, frost, arcane for example).(As of BFA / 8.0.1, the PvP talent frame has been reduced to nothing and is not worth working on.) Fix the Hunter Pet Spec Artwork. Build compatibility with ElvUI, Aurora, and other Skin-like addons. Again, not enough lua knowledge yet, but I already have an idea.
Icons are from Flat Player Icons. They are only a part of the screenshots but don't come with my addon.
Here's a screenshot album of some examples of the talent frames!
Thank you so much to everyone who supported me while making this addon! I've spent almost 20+ hours (so far) working on this between the artwork and making sure everything was right. Beyond that, I'm going to lose track.
You can donate to me if you want here so I can continue making AddOns and have greater free time. 🙂
