I've tried Skada on occasion, maybe it is the way it tracks the fight, but I've gotten different results from it than from recount. But Recount has bugged out on me as well recently. No matter how I set it up, it resets after ever pull. annoying as sin. I'm trying to figure out what add on gives you a radar like screen, kind of a range thing. I ran one 5 man the other day and the tank activated something and it popped up on my screen for the boss fight. might have been DBM? small box with a spiderweb/target design in it? Not sure what it does or anything. I'd like to know. RS

The range indicator is indeed DBM. typing "/range" will bring it up-right clicking it will bring up the menu to change the distance

You might have it set to be "current fight" instead of "overall data"? It's one of the buttons on the left, iirc...

I've seen this too. I use recount (but not in combat), DBM and nothing else. Can someone point too some help in configuring DBM and Omen or Tidy Plates. Have tried all of these, maybe I have the wrong expectation. My guildies tell me I manage threat well (not really required with new change anyway), but I have trouble identifying when there's a rogue add. That's really all I want to know - healer's behind me, an add is on him that isn't on my screen and is out of range of Blood Boil/ Pestilence, I want to taunt him. I want something that tells me he's there and I don't have threat.Suggestions?I tanked with no add-ons all the way through Wrath (just Heroics, almost no raiding) because of a low-powered computer (I went back to Northrend recently with an alt that hit 68 and was blown away at the graphic detail I missed the first time ...). So my tank style is based on not using add-ons and I haven't found anything that works for me "out of the box" to manage threat.
