I don't think of the meter as being missing. I don't understand people who run with it open -- who has time to stare at a meter? I got green bars to fill up and fire not to stand in -- I'll look at the meter later.

Read that too fast -- not missing but small. Again, I don't bother.

100% agree. Recount is a great way to analyze what you did, but a poor way to spend your attention in the middle of a fight. Looking at the meters mid-fight could give you an idea of your raid's overall dps in a dps-sensitive fight, but that's generally easier to tell from queues built into the game (i.e. did you push the next phase before a 3rd add spawned?).

Maybe it's just me, but I've always used Skada in the middle of a fight to glance at to see if I'm performing to the best of my abilities. I think people jump on the whole idea of "people who look at dps in the middle of the fight are too worried about damage and not the fight" way too quickly. I don't spend the entire fight staring at the meter, but if there's ever a lull where I'm just going through my rotation and I have the luxury of seeing how I'm doing, I'll do it, know if I'm pulling my weight. It's more of a psychological thing for me at this point.And besides, what else would I put in that spot on my screen? I already have everything else in place.
