All those addons are useless except 2. QuesthelperOmenEven Omen is quickly becoming obsolete with Blizzards new threat meter.

I hope you're kidding.

Ah yes, the in-game threat meter. Where "Attacking You!" is considered fair warning.

Now, now, Zerounit, it's just fine if you want to leave your cursor hovering over the mob in order to see what percentage of threat you have in the mob tooltip.*boggle*I'm glad Blizzard is implementing SOMETHING, so newcomers can get used to the idea of threat as an element of the game; they'll get used to seeing "Attacking you!"But Omen is heads above the built-in threat meter, and because 3.0 uses the built-in threat meter, not everyone has to have Omen installed for it to work!

"Attacking You" is actually great for healers. I usually never look at omen so when I suddenly see several "Attacking You" messages I can quickly hit fade instead of getting instantly owned by all the adds.

Omen meter shows threat by everyone, in many cases it is important to know not only the aggrod person (tank) but also 1st and 2nd on threat list.My top favourites:Non combat: Ark Inventory - customize your bags however you want, see it all in one frame, see what you have on your alts, in your bank, guild vault etc on any server for any char at the same time.Cartographer, Atlas, Atlas Loot, Questhelper (warning may be come dependant on it)Gatherer, Auctioneer = $$$Combat:X-perl - removes the need for decursive as it highlights range, and anything you can dispel. Not to mention easy to start using by highly customizableHealbot - A must of any healer and helpful for many other classes, when use with x-perl removes the need for many other add onsOmen, DBM - a must for any raid/instancePally Power - best addon for blessingsTrinket Menu - if youre gonna get 1 addon for trinkets, this should be itBartender - if you ask me Blizzard should hire the guys who make this and incorporate it into UI. Theres a lot more and many class specific add ons that really make your life easier.Also if somehow you haven't already make sure you have vent client installed.

No I am not kidding. All the other addons are pointless IMO. I think the default UI is awesome, built in threat meter is great, and the mini map finders is cool. Messing with the Default UI is like buying a Porsche and putting on Civic parts because you think they will work better. Seriously Blizzard has spent millions to develop the perfect UI and now you going to replace it with something 1 person threw together?

"Messing with the Default UI is like buying a Porsche and putting on Civic parts because you think they will work better."Nope.. It's like putting Supercharger in a Civic.Bliz opened the UI specifically for this reason. They knew everyone would have different play-styles. You just happen to like Civics is all.For the rest of us -- some like Turbo, some Superchargers, some NO2.
