Nothing wrong with watching your action bars for cooldowns. Except that when your action bars are at the bottom of the screen, and you are a tank, and you have to have a lot of raid awareness...The buff bars that he has are similar to what I run, and they are just fine and dandy making sure you have all the right buffs. But are you going to scan a huge list of in-combat buffs to tell you when art of war procs, or killing machine, or missile barrage/brain freeze/hot streak, or slice n dice, or any number of class specific buffs/procs? What about debuffs on the boss, your judgements, thunderclap, bleed effects, on and on...There are plenty of addons that overlap functions that are highly useful. Needtoknow, classtimer, forteXorcist, and dottimer are 4 that come to mind. Sure you can track your buffs/debuffs on the unit frames and basic buff list, but some debuffs are much more important than others.In any case, the point about my post was not just to say "use a SS in combat," it was specifically requesting that UI's be displayed not only in combat, but in a raid, bg, or arena, with appropriate descriptions of how you track the things you need to track. Nothing wrong with using omnicc on your action bars to track your cooldowns, but as far as I can tell, he doesn't have any method to tracking anything except the buff frames and the threat meter.
