Grid is a big part of my toolkit as a tank. I can instantly see who has aggro, who has boss-specific debuffs, and what cooldowns are on myself and the other tank(s). I also mark who has my Vigilance.I also still use SatrinaBuffFrames (SBF), even though it's no longer supported. In fact, I use one version back from the current one, since the last release fixed the ability to right-click off buffs, but at the expense of being able to sort them, and it also caused some weird graphical issues for me. The main benefit to SBF, besides sorting your buffs/debuffs, is that you can move and *resize* any group of buffs/debuffs. Personally, I have my debuffs blown up huge, so that I can easily see what's on me, how many stacks of it I have, and what duration it has left.

You can probably replace SBF by Raven. It's what I did and it needed some setup but now I'm loving it :)

@Zeffuro:I tried that. Doesn't work, because I can't increase the size on my debuffs, which is the single most important thing about SBF for me. (I asked around and no one else knew how to do it, either.) Raven actually seems more geared towards what I personally use ClassTimer for (buffs and debuffs that I place on myself and others) than what I use SBF for (debuffs placed on me by bosses).
