Pitbull
Bartender
Prat
DBM or BigWigs
Quartz
Parrot
Omen
CowTip

The order has no meaning. Just this is the way they came into my mind.

  • Action bar mod ( bt4 atm)
  • Minimalist
  • ouf Lyn or p3lim or Pitbull
  • Baggins or Arkinventory
  • teksloot
  • Buff addon ( satrina buff frames 2 or rbuff)
  • Minimap ( chincilla atm, p/r Minimap usually)

And while I'm at it; fav UI's are Ishtara UI, Zyn UI, or anything by Tiany over the last maybe 6 months

mine - I run pretty light?

1) bars (currently bartender 4)

2) (simple) unit frames - using icehud for that right now - basically as long as I can reposition player/target/tt I'm good. Icehud has the bonus of providing player and target cast bars as well.

3) Minimalist (mainly for the chat adjustments, sell grey items, and scroll in the mini-map)

4) Deadly Boss Mods (only when I'm raiding)

5) Omen or another stacked-up threat display

6) a bag combiner (using bagnon now mainly for it's search feature)

7) A gear-set switcher (using outfitter currently)

8) A tool tip replacement (mainly so I can reposition the tooltip. Using tiptac currently)

9) omnicc to add cooldown counts to bt4 bars

10) Mapster

I am fine with the defaults for raid/party frames, chat fonts/background/movers, minimap, etc. etc. I'm not into the eye-candy so much - mainly I just try to position the important frames well to fit me.

In roughly this order:
  1. Grid
  2. Macaroon (was InfiniBar before the patch)
  3. tekticles
  4. Bagnon
  5. oUF
  6. RatingBuster
  7. PhanxChat
  8. TipTac
  9. Clique
  10. BigWigs

This is coming from someone who's raided as a resto shaman for the last 3 or so years... if I were speaking for any of my alts, the list might be a little different.

Post-3.0 many addons undergone a revamp, or simply broke and are discontinued. So I had to set about fidning not only a new bunch that worked with 3.0, but also worked with each other! ... here's my brief list of current..

LoL oops, I was up all night with work, so yeah I /fail ... ok here's revised!

1. ArkInventory
2. Prat
3. Macaroon
4. BigWigs + DBM
5. Omen

Can I have a 6th? .. ok

6. Altas (Loot)

Don't think the game would be the same w/o those tbh!

Edit by Shirik: Negative comments against programs that work well like those you placed here are both off-topic and unnecessary. This is your only warning.

Of the 4-5 addons I listed (I forgot RatingBuster!), I only really need Cartographer. The ability to move around while having the world map open is very useful for figuring out where I'm going on-the-go. Having to stop and look at the map has often resulted in me getting sidetracked by seeing something neat along the way or getting lost and wasting precious hours going off on some other tangent. Cartographer keeps me on track and focused, and that's without the waypoint module.

Did you know that there used to be a big purple bubble (Dalaran) between Hammerfall and Kargath?

No, because that's not where it was.

It was between Undercity and Tarren Mill.

I'm definitely not a fan of default UI and I like using addons just to test them out. The list I could not do without is not that big however.

1) Addon to make my frames mobile like Fluid Frames. The windows glued to the screen drive me nuts.
2) Some OneBag type of addon, like Bagnon. I can hardly find anything I my one bag - having to sort 5 would shorten my life expectancy...
3) Some Boss Warning addon. ( BigWigs, DBM ) - to not be 'that guy' on the raid.
4) Some notes/macro storing addon, like MacroBank, NotesUNeed, IHML, ect. why? Well if I didn't have all my addons to provide me with shortcuts I would have to make my own via macros ( equipment switching, mouseover healing, trinket use, etc ). I would certainly run out of room to keep them all.
5) Addon to loot all my mail. Opening 50+ mails per day one by one gets old real fast.

Thats what I need to keep me sane. Of course I will keep using my 100+ addons anyway :P.

Clique

Everything else can be done without addons. But click casting without clique is the hell.

1) Any unit frame mod that allows party to be separated
2) TipTac (drag the anchor where you want ftw)
3) /nefport (or any viewport mod that works)
4) Bartender4 (any barmod that doesn't take a week to learn the uses)
5) Any Minimap that you can drag and resize/reshape (using Rico atm)
6) Timers for buff/dot/hot tracking (using Dotimer atm)
7) Itemrack or Outfitter (I'm a druid)
8) Prat (or Phanxchat)
9) Omen (only because it's "required" for raiding, anyone that "knows their class" shouldn't "need it", except in situations where agro is wiped from a boss)
10) Clique if I'm healing

If I had to limit to 10, that would be it I guess. If I were to answer next next week, it might change in 2 or 3 areas

Need and want tread very close to one another for most mods (for me anyway). Maybe if I try to think of what lacking mods would cause me to go find something else to do instead :P That would probably be the following:

Any unit frame mod
Any bar mod
Clique

To me, everything else is either nice to have, or just reduces annoyance.

Can't imagine how I'd cope without:

Auctioneer
Some bar mod (Macaroon, right now, by choice)
Chatterbox
SimpleMail
Some coordinate mod
Combuctor (or some bag mod)
DevTools

Really very fond of:
Auditor
FuBar_LocationFu
FuBar_ExperienceFu
flagRSP (or equivalent)
Atlas or Cartographer
MobInfo or similar databases of mob drops
LightHeaded

There's a ton of other stuff I like having, but the big fundamental things for me are efficient auctioning, unified bags, and a ton of buttons.
