I got a noobish question about buff monitoring etc, maybe I just have had bad luck (or poor search skills) but I've been looking for ages for a simple addon that will just let me indicate that I'd like to be reminded when certain buffs fail (not just for my pally but for my lock, shaman, etc) and then, when the indicated buff(s) end, just do something as simple as popping up a big persistent 'HEY YOUR BUFF JUST ENDED' for 10 seconds or so... in other words, long enough for me to notice even in the midst of a hectic battle without picking it out of the sea of buff icons near my minimap, but not constant and irritating under situations where I may not actually care or have any ability to do anything about it (on a 10 minute griffon flight for example).I know there's a bunch of addons that will do this sort of thing *in addition to* a lot of other stuff, but most of them are way more complex than I need. I can't imagine I'm the only person who has ever wanted something simple like this, so I guess the question is... does something like this already exist? I've considered just writing my own addon to deal with it, but I don't want to re-invent the wheel if I don't have to obviously. Anyways, thanks if anyone has any ideas on this!

The problem with what you're asking is that those type of notifications are baked into a lot of different addons, most notably power auras and fortexorcist.I actually track my self-buffs manually with classtimer, and I use a simplified setup of elkano's buff bars. You basically can't get just an "end of buff notification" addon. The simplest way to do that would be with power auras (and power auras is not a simple addon if you've never used it).Satrina buff frame might do what you're asking too, but I'm a die-hard elkano's guy.
