Debuffs, buffs and cooldowns help!
I'm looking for some help regarding what the title states. I need to know, by class sorted, what buffs, debuffs and cooldowns are worth tracking. The reason for this? I am setting up rFilter for most (all if possible) classes for my UI.
Any help with this, even if you only post one spec for a class, will be much appreciated!
The idea is to keep it simple. Keep track of your own debuffs on your current target, keep track of important buffs/procs on yourself and also, keep track of your own most important cooldowns.
For example, for dps classes:

You might want to add tracking in for the mastery buffs.. Speaking as a resto druid, I like to keep track of Harmony to make sure it is always active.
You could also check mods like EventHorizon- which i suggest because I almost dropped it for rFilter- or basic setups for any number of the tracking mods to give you a good idea where to start.

** Buffs on self
** Debuffs cast by self
** Debuffs cast by others
These are really only useful in raids, where there are other people applying effects that are non-stacking equivalents of your effects.

Probably missing some elemental buffs/debuffs, since I don't play that spec.
Debuffs from totems
Buffs on self
Buffs on self that aren't important
These are procs that you can't really control (eg. some happen every time you crit), and that have no real effect on your gameplay choices while they're active (eg. increase attack speed, but you're going to attack all the time anyway), so you'd only want to show them if you're really curious.
Buffs on others
Buffs from totems
Buffs from totems that aren't important
Usually you won't care about seeing these buffs, since you'll just look at the duration timer on the totem itself. The only reasons you'd want to see these as buffs would be (a) you are obsessive about micro-managing other people's positioning and wish to yell at them when they move out of totem range, or (b) your raid leader is an obsessive micro-manager who will yell at you if someone moves out of your totem range and you don't move your totems immediately. Otherwise, the totem duration and some basic situational awareness should be more than sufficient to use your totems properly.

I'd also suggest that the following buffs always be displayed for all specs/classes:
Buffs on player — Bloodlust and equivalents
Buffs on player — other
Debuffs on enemies — crowd control
