VTC is a great addon and I always get questions about it when I SS my UI--"what's the bar in your lower right hand corner, Miri?"I used VTC as a quick check before a boss pull to make sure I'm fully buffed (sometimes I get distracted while explaining an aspect of a fight or clarifying a question and forget to use my food/elixir)--mousing over it while targeting a boss should always have me capped--if I'm not, I quickly check my buffs to see what I'm missing!It's a great little addon, but I plead that people take time to learn why the addon exists and what all those numbers mean. If you don't understand the concept of CTC and how it benefits you as a tank and your healers, then a moment needs to be taken to "study up." Yea, tanking does involve a lot of numbers, but it makes you a better tank if you can explain what you're doing (trust me, I get yelled at a lot when I'm crunching numbers--"MIRI, are you STILL looking at numbers? We want to run something!"

Amen to that. I don't really blame the people for not understanding how the combat table works, what "coverage" means, and how a single-roll is different than a two-roll one. Thing is, Blizzard did a very poor job at explaining all of this. I remember that when I first started tanking on my paladin (I had some attempts in tanking on my warrior, but that was way back in WotLK) that I was left wondering why the combat table is "covered" at 102.4% avoidance+block. I mean, why not 100%? And why the coverage was different for, say, DKs? It was stuff like that that led me to do some research on the combat table. It was a lucky coincidence that I was looking for an idea for an addon at around the same time :)By the way, any and all suggestions about VCT are more than welcome.
