One suggestion is to use an addon like Sunn - Viewport Art (http://www.empoweredfire.com/2009/10/23/mage-leveling-guide) to adjust the viewport so that the game is not hidden behind kgPanels or FuBar or anything else. For those that do not know, the viewport is the area of the screen in which the game is rendered. Basically, if you setup that big rectangular area at the bottom for all your stuff and have FuBar / Titan at the top then you cannot see what is going on in the game behind those areas. If you adjust your viewport then the entirety of the game is drawn above your bottom rectangle and below your top bar and, thus, no part of the game is hidden behind something that is static and opaque.

Hello.I tried Sunn, but it made the screen too squished and narrow for my tastes, so i decided to keep it how it is. I didn't see any fps increase, so i saw no need to keep it. The art panels looked good tho!-Crazyates

One addon I've liked in the past is Warcrafty, it basically makes your ui look like the WCIII UI. Haven't used it in ages, so I'm not sure if it's still up and running, but it was a decent addon for it's purpose. Not sure how cluttered it'd look though, as I haven't played ona small screen in ages.

@Rob47That's PowerAuras Classic, as was mentioned briefly in the article. I have the same animation for 2 different spells: for when i have Holy Shield up (tanking), or Beacon of Light (healing). The squiglys on the bottom side of that "bubble" also change color depending on what seal/blessings i have up, but they weren't quite set up right in that first screenshot. I'm interested to hear what Matthew has to say about PowerAuras next week. -Crazyates

Sweet Is power auras hard to set up and does it do anything useful for a DK?

I just use it to display what buffs/proc's are active (plus to look cool). I'm sure you could find some use for it (similar to what i did, but change the color for what presence you're in?)But don't listen to me. We'll see what he has to say next week.
