Marking tip:Cataclysm brought a change with it, allowing you to mark targets while solo'ing now. (Used to be just in party or raid). Can really help if you have a mob targeted but can't find it. Toss a blue square on it, it will light up even if it's out of LOS.Marking bar sounds like a really good addon for those types of things, and with the new dungeons requiring cc, everyone should have a target marking addon.

Amazingly useful tip, no longer will I have to carry around a shadow jade focusing lens on each of my alts just to find the damn chief skeleton that a farmer wants me to kill.

You've been able to mark on your own (not in a party) for a while now, way before Cataclysm. I remember using it to mark the truesight guards in capital cities while I was sneaking around on my rogue so I'd know when to stay out of their way as they patrolled.

I used this feature to find those tricky Rogues in Dalaran for the Thanksgiving holiday event.../who Rogue"Ok... StabbityStab is in Dalaran..."/target StabbityStab"... ok, they're near me somewhere..."*mark StabbityStab with an orange circle*"On top of the fountain? Clever girl..."*cocks his turkey gun*

That's nice, but what i really want is the ability to set marks for me personally even when I am in the group. I'd like to be able to mark allies in BGs or whatever I want to be able to indentify without those marks intruding on the UI of everyone else in the group. Not seen an add-on that does that, is it impossible?
