Simple, low resource Addon Memory cost, easy to fix on patch day, easy to understand, few addons, easy to update via “Favourites” list on Curse _and_ Wowinterface.
Minimalist – hides the two eagles at the bottom of the screen and does a few other things that are VERY useful – easily one of the most brilliant addons ever written
Incidentally – Brödrost is the Swedish word for “Bread Toaster”. I’m Swedish. Moonie’s funny macro is thus a bit funnier than intended. Lol.
Grid – purple dot on < 40% mana, curse and poison icons
Chaos Frame Modifier to move things around – kinda want to rotate/move the action bars on the right too, but too much trouble, hide a few frames, supersize target & focustarget castbar and ComboFrame.
EventHorizon – won out over BadKitty, Cat’s Eye and FbN, NeedToKnow, TellMeWhen, Classtimer, Dot Timer and a few others I’ve tried
EventHorizon Lines to put a line at 10 seconds for FB decisions re: Savage Roar and Rip. MAKE THAT 11 BECAUSE I SUCK AT FB MANAGEMENT. 1.5s past, 18s future, width 250, scale 1.3, bar height 20
EventHorizon Vitals – Hey, just realized I don’t need this, away it goes! (tracks CPs, proc uptimes, energy all in ways I already do better elsewhere)
Afflicted – still messing with settings
Ovale – custom script updated daily (damn near) on EJ forum, with a mod to give Mangle recommendation priority with < 1 second to go, icon to right is bigger than default and shows TF or Berserk if available – this won out over FbN which was always bloated and is now seriously out-dated
Combuctor – very basic, very awesome bag addon that uses ten times less Memory than my old TBag
Omen – I don’t need the bells and whistles and number. I need to have a simple, very visual way to check my aggro – AGGRO CAT! – so a few big thick bars with me in red, everyone else black/grey
Paranoia – THE world pvp mod
SilverDragon – I like Rare mobs.
DBM – superior to BigWigs imo
Q: Why is everything like this?
A: Gotta keep the vital info centralized, gotta keep positioning for raid bossfights, gotta have everything so close to the center that I can either see it with my peripheral vision or only have to move my eyes very little and then back. TOTAL SITUATIONAL AWARENESS. All Damn Day.
Here’s a fun little exercise: do ten seconds of dps on a heroic dummy and count how many mistakes you make – I’m usually at 3-5. Ugh.
