oUF. I simply can't play with my unitframes in the top left of the screen and all this horrible artwork around it.

Second would be rActionbarstyler. Clean up that shiz.

Third is probably aBags. </3 I miss my pretty bags.

Oh and fourth is alleymap... Fullscreen map is too big and small map is too small.

You may be comparing apples to oranges.


Really, though, I don't understand how Recount makes it into this thread.

I dunno, I use the non-DPS portions of recount very heavily to try and figure out what happened with a fight that went bad. The deaths tab is almost always useful, and depending on the fight, the dispels, damage done by target breakdown, and other tabs can be very helpful.

OmniCC, tullaRange, FluidFrames.
(or functional equivalents)

The End

I have a whole bunch of convenience addons that I would "like"
(including some of mine) but those 3 are essential.

I think a lot of people don't really get that Wow 4.0 is really WoW 2, the sequel to WoW, and that the entire game is changing. The mechanics are different. Skills are different. The basic formulas are different.

You cannot compare Cataclysm DPS to live as it's a completely meaningless comparison. It's like comparing Doom III to Unreal.

WoW 4, check. we old-timers already went through this already, twice... already. with both Burning Crusade and WotLK, philosophy/theorycraft/balance/API/everything changed fairly broadly (at least, it all seemed pretty big at the time). this will be the third iteration of that process. sounds even bigger this time around, though (Blizzard seems intent on some major "simplification", rather than adding chrome... which is probably good).

has anyone tried Aloft yet? is it even minimally functional? i am pending a WoWI developer key (would be wonderful if i ended up with one).

i have already seen the post here in the WoWI forums on the new nameplate console variables (trying to figure out how to rationalize Blizzard dynamically resizing nameplates based on threat with what Aloft already does... if Blizzard continues to treat addon control of nameplate frame size as a "protected" operation, i will probably have to disable nameplate frame resizing/padding, at least as a user option).

Addons are still disabled, and probably will be for a while longer - there are parts of the default UI that aren't even finished, let alone implemented (no Guild UI, for example). The nameplate changes aren't complete yet either.

A consequence of the guild control being disabled is that you cannot /gquit at this time. So, think twice before joining a beta guild.

Being an "old-timer" I have to say the phrase "WoW 2.0" for WoW 4.0 is apt, it really is that bigger change. Previous expansions have been just that "expansions" adding new spells here and there, adding a couple of talents, new zones etc. Whereas Cataclysm is different it definately feels like Blizz have gone back to basics seen what worked, what didn't and then reformed the game, the biggest testiment to WoW 2.0 is the complete reworking of Ogrimmar.

You do not get an error if you type /gquit - but you do not leave your current guild either. Same for /run, etc. No error message as would be shown for an unknown slash command, but no action either.

I can get along without most of my addons; even Bartender isn't as big of a loss as it could be. But I'm finding that, on my DK at least, I cannot stand not having an alternate Rune display mod (Mine is Rune Pack).

Also, so much macro functionality has been temporarily removed, it's hard to adjust.

Does no one play a healer? I'd be at so lost without grid.

I do, but I didn't use grid until after I'd downed most or all of Naxx 10 in Wrath, so I'm find with just the party interface (which is kinda grid-like anyway now).

I got so used to grid as a healer that I feel uncomfortable without it when I dps :P

Though I've heard that the new raid frames have "grid like" functionality - though I can't really comment as I'm not currently in the beta.

I'm a tank, I have no other char that is worth talking about.

I need centralized simple unitframes, a debufftracker, OMNICC (OMG how I miss that one...), simple actionbars, simple chat, simple player buffs, simple minimap

Rest is obligatory.

I miss Bartender4... the default action bars so too spread out for me.


Oh and OmniCC and InlineAura for CDs and Procs.
