Tidy Plates is the best DPS threat addon.Omen was great in its day for a meter on the screen - but Tidy Plates changes the look of a name plate if you've got, are losing,or are gaining threat on it. For a DPS in the thick of the action - this is more useful.Its what I use as a tank too - if there's an add I've lost, I can click its Tidy Plate and now its my target to do my moves on.For warning and notices, look at Weak Auras.- A low resource and easy to configure addon similar to powerauras. You can set up on-screen notices for various events anywhere on screen you personally benefit best having them.- I still use this to let me track the counter for the boss in H:Blackrock Mountain so that I can have the center of my screen show a giant set of numbers to tell me how many stacks I've got. That way I don't need to be looking at the corner or something at a buff bar. For that one fight - I've no excuse to be stupid as it becomes the center of my screen, and then unloads itself as soon as we're done there.

I personally like using omen and TP together. Some bosses tend to be so large that you never even see their hitbox and the warning sound from Omen is a clear reminder to me that I have a threat drop ability and should use it. Though since the threat hotfix I haven't heard that sound once, I'm contemplating removing Omen next time it calls for an update.

Totally agree. Tidy Plates + Threat Plates gives just the right amount of information now. I really hope that Blizzard build this functionality into the base game in the next expansion.
