Power Auras has to be one of the best addons taht can be made useful by everyone, and definitely a major help in seeing procs instead of staring at the top right of my screen for a small square box. I play a mage, and I have it set to monitor Missile Barrage, stacks of Arcane Blast, trinket timers and procs, Clearcasting, Hot Streak...literally everything is shown on my screen, exactly where I want it to be shown. Same goes for my DK - trinket procs, Rune Strike availability, and a Horn of Winter timer are all there.I don't get why people seem to think the standard UI is so much better when it simply doesn't give you all this information in such a customizable way.

Finally! I'm guessing Power Auras was originally made for hunters by hunters or whatever, but it can be used by ANYONE. You don't have to be a hunter to benefit from this addon. I, too, play a mage and use it to show me when I have living bomb on my target with a timer to see how long before it blows. I use it to show my hot streak procs, and again a timer to see how much time I have left to use it. I also use a big yellow exclamation point over my head when I need to spell steal a buff off my focus target (situational use, but very nice for Lord Jaraxxus and Iron Council). I also play a pally and have a triple-ring aura deal going when I have Divine Shield, Sacred Shield, and Divine Plea going. I also use a great big annoying aura that comes up when my seal goes away.Sure, you don't have to use this. But for information that is important _to me_, it beats the heck out of visually scanning through 30+ buffs or debuffs to find the ones I need (or worse, to see if the ones I need are missing).
