Show health as percentage and actual health?

As the title says, anyone know a way to do this in game? Percentage is definitely more helpful for raiding, but sometimes I just want to know how much health that huge dragon in front of me has...

Re: Show health as percentage and actual health?

May I suggest using some custom unit frames? Persoanlly I'd recommend pitbull, they're quick to configure and only show useful info.

You can actually do it from the wow options.

You can't show both % and Actual from the WoW options, it's 1 or the other, or neither.

Like a poster said above Pitbill will do this as well as x-perl which I like a lot more. It depends on the person though. I know a lot of people hate x-perl.

Shadowed is another option, you won't get this functionality in default UI I'm afraid.

Another thing you can do is download an addon that just shows %. So you can use the default unit frames but just have the other thing next to it for % health of the target.

I am a big fan of shadowed unit frames fwiw

Pretty much this. I always had the health bar set to actual, then used drainsouler set off to the right of mid screen that had percent in fairly large font.
