@the OP:In a raid enviroment (and even a PuG) It can be very frustrating when people refuse to admit that addons can drastically improve their gameplay. Everyone I've ever told about Quartz initially tells me their castbar is fine and doesn't understand the use. I have to make an impassioned plea to them to try it (and I'm a prot warrior). For those who don't know, Quartz accounts for latency in your cast bar. It's worth more than any single gear upgrade you can get. If you're casting a 2s cast with 300ms of latency and spam your next cast/ability right as your cast bar finishes, you're actually casting a 2.3s spell. Quartz will make this back into a 2s cast. Gaining a third of a second in this cage is massive. You've effectively added 200 haste rating to your character (15%) just from using an addon. The more normal haste rating or faster spells you use, the bigger the gain.
