Omen (blank square)
Big Wigs for raiding (or DBM is BigWigs is bad for a specific fight).
Also, every tank should use the External Cooldown WeakAura and every bear should use the TnC WeakAura (tracks the absorb). So good, the both of them!
I'll get a screenshot during the raid tomorrow with everything running =D
...Bone armor and revenge?
It's the default icon that comes up from the "External Cool down" Weak Aura.
I moved Bone Shield because it stacks on top of the others when used. Other wise it tracks everything perfectly!
And the TnC one
I can't remember who I got them off, but they're amazing nonetheless xD

Bison (for the buff/debuff bars)
SUF for player/target/party frames (Party frames usually hidden when raiding)
Powerauras to track procs, certain buffs (Shield block) etc.
The only abilities I have shown on my bars are ones with cooldowns or certain things I need to keep track of, all my bind bars are hidden.

I will never understand the attraction to have such obstructive UIs.
What important infomation am i missing?
That basically kills it for my alt warrior. :-/
I also am going to disable the nameplates and go back to tidy plates/threat plates. Now I just need to get the raid frames to not show x2 debuffs on me, and my target to show the buffs/debuffs I want to see.
I'll also probably reinstall needtoknow so that I can track procs a little better. I LIKE that stuff shows up at my character (super nice for SoTR) but I think there's a little too much going on there- prolly have to blacklist some procs and stuff. I'm also probably going to reinstall move anything, and move my debuffs back down towards where my character is- and turn debuffs off on my character 'list'.
I just downloaded it [ElvUI], so I'm not sure if it's just something I have to get used to + fix the way I want, or if it's something that just doesn't work for me and I need to find a work around.
My UI is a collection that I put together that I find simple and not to obtrusive.
The main addons I use are:
Tidy Plates, Tidy Plates: Threat Plates (Tank) / Tidy Plates: Neon Plates (DPS)
Shadowed Unit Frames
The first image is just a combat screenie. The second shows all of my WeakAuras which also include my holy power.
We should seriously considering making a Weakauras sticky thread.. like.. people have lots of good ideas, and suggestions for auras, plus if someone wants one made it's an easy place to request it.
You know.. Bring some GOOD to the tank forums instead of people crying about LFR ^__^
That being said, anyone got a bunch of pre made DK ones, i have like none - so if anyone has any throw them at me, - all mine are for right now are for my monk (I use Sunniers Auras for Brewmaster, and Affinitys for Mistweaver) and my Paladin (my own auras), as well as a few auras for tracking boss debuffs.
That basically kills it for my alt warrior. :-/
I still think it's pretty cool; at very least I have a pretty upfront display of when the buffs (Barrier/Block) are active, how long they'll stay up, and how much (rough) mitigation they'll do. Since it's based on PAST combat log data, if you've got a big burst coming up (Say, Breaths on Megaera's heads), or even post-burst, it's going to skew the data heavily. As long as you know that and plan accordingly, you're pretty much golden. It's not going to, however, really make the decision for you all the time; if so, it'll usually lean towards Barrier unless you're tanking a lot of mobs, then it will almost always lean towards Block.
Since you can accomplish the same (rough) thing with Weak Auras (with regards to Barrier's absorption amount before actually needing to use it), it's really a matter of taste. In 5.3 I might get rid of it anyway (since the addon's author doesn't seem to be updating it, and a commentor updated the calculations for 5.2) and see what I can do with Weak Auras or Class Timers. Or I may just try to develop it for myself, who knows?
Hell, I might dump ElvUI entirely and start from the bare necessities; I don't know anymore XD
Having a sort of "repository/request" thread might be kind of cool; definitely might bring people together more than just moaning about LFR and class differences. :P
Raid frames are Grid. Use it when I heal. \
Nameplates are the standard TidyPlates/Threatplates
Shadowed Unit Frames for myself, target, targetoftarget, and focus
Mik's Scrolling Battle Text for battle text.
WeakAuras do the bulk of the work. The yellow/blue boxes are Chi, under it is Stagger (changes colors based on the amount). Left is EB stacks, right is Guard with amount left on the absorb. The numbers, starting from the left-top are Shuffle, CD remaining on Keg Smash (replaced by a Keg Smash icon when it's ready, I have 2 chi slots free and more than 40 energy), and energy. Underneath the shuffle bar are Vengeance and, while you can't see it at that second, the Staggering buff from our 2pc. Also, to the right of my healthbar is a aura that shows when the buff from the tanking meta is up. I know those two aren't necessary, but I like to see when they're rolling for funsies.
Coolline is the bar under the health and shows cooldowns in a linear fashion.
Bars are Bartender with kgPanels (credit for that setup goes to Leeflow). Chi Torpedo shows up twice because CR is normally Xuen while Z is roll, but I have a macro to put there whatever I have on that talent tier.
Rounding it out is Mappy, Chatter, Omen, and Skada.

For my tanking:
• Inline Aura
• Vengeance Meter (can't remember exact name)
• Tidy Plates: Threat Plates
For my healing:
As above, sans the last 3.
For my tanking:
For the healer spec, do you not use frames and have them track renewing mists hot?, it would take up a lot less space then what you have now, also
tracks renewing mists, shows the duration remaining and the amount of people it's running on
So Here's the stuff I use, and some of the things i've been working on in Weakauras for my DK
is with Weakauras open so you can see the auras, the 2 ? ? at the bottom are Vengeance, and Blood Shield Values.
I've been playing around with Dynamic groups since they are a new thing that i never took the time to play with in the past, so the Scent of Blood and Bone Shield Auras basicly only show the icon in the middle of those stacks (ie: one at a time). It's kinda neat and animated - If it's static and just has a counter i don't always notice it, so i made them a little more animated so i can see the stacks gaining and falling off by icons moving in and out.
Other Addons T use are:
http://i.imgur.com/MSGcUm4.jpg is a screenshot with my cooldowns (the bar only shows in combat -i'm probably going to replace all these with weakauras)
also shows the red boneshield icon for when it's not on me, and off cooldown
You people and your clutter... here's mine (when I was alliance; hasn't changed)
Simple setup, party frames in default location but resized. Raid frames bottom left from left of chatbox forming around the bars. Target, mirrored of player frame. Also using miks combat text so it arcs on the outside, while crits are in the center. Overall very clean ui
So I mostly copied Lee's auras, but I made one that I'd like to share.
It shows the Guard icon (suggesting that I should use it) when Guard is available AND Power Guard is up. It also calculates how much Guard will absorb for at that moment. (I made sure that includes Vengeance! I tested it a lot and the calculation is accurate.)
e: I know this thread is old but it's so useful, and it's better to have everything in one thread.
