BetterEXP v3.0 by Darxide of Eredar
Modified from v2 by Zynna
Originally by Arronax and Sabar

BetterEXP is an experience bar mod that provides much more than just your
current exeperience amount.


  • Top bar broken up into 20 "bubbles" divided just like Blizzard's default
    experience bar for easy communication with non-BetterEXP users.
  • Bottom bar shows your progress through the current "bubble." This allows
    you to easily track your progress at higher levels where each bubble
    represents 10s of thousands of experience points.
  • Calculates your average experience per kill and displays the number of
    estimated kills you have before your next level.
  • Customizable colors for each bar. Your current experience count is one
    color while your rested experience can be a second color so you can
    easily see where your rested experience will end, unlike Blizzard's
    default bar which shows a small, easy to miss icon where your rested
    will end.
  • Resizable to fit any custom UI layout.
  • All /commands easily accessable from a drop down menu by right clicking
    on the bar.
