I'll admit it... I'm afraid of add-ons. I feel like they're going to give me some sort of keylogger virus.... I downloaded a version of FlagRSP2 once and my virus scanner detected something malicious in it, and now I've been scared of them ever since >.>That said, I still have to run Omen, and MapCoords... but that's pretty much it. And I consistently do 4k DPS, currently working on heroic Yogg with my guild. I'm arcane, so I don't have to watch Living Bomb ticks, and I'm not sure why anyone would need to monitor if they have Missile Barrage - whether it procced or not, you are casting Missiles after 3 blasts. Period.Also, why not just make a mouse-over macro for decursing? Works fine for me. I don't know... I'm probably just being an idiot and should jump on the 'billion of add-ons' bandwagon. *cries in a corner*

Add-ons should never consist of files that are executable. Ever. Just use a little sense when downloading, as with everything else on the internet, and you'll be fine. You don't NEED add ons to do well. Add ons can just make things a little easier.

Download addons from Curse.com since they very reputable and have a huge library of addons. If you are raiding then most likely you min/max your gear to put out that much dps. The fact is that you "may" be able to put out more dps if you use a helper. They are not required, but any serious dpser know that the more dps the group puts out the more likely you will be successful. Just food for thought and since you probably already know your max dps put out in a given encounter then the probability of beating that number should be appealing to you.I use tons of addons that are situational and the nice thing is that you can always turn off the ones you don't need depending on what you are doing.Excellent column Christian.

Thanks. Maybe I'll start experimenting with a few...
