    For those who wish to Raid

    I don't know if this has been gone over before, and I dont know if this will be of any use to those who don't use the forums as they should Razz

    Here is a list of what I would expect to be the minimum required add ones prior to raiding ( I would almost expect these ALL before even running a 5 man dungeon with someone, but thats just my personal opinion Razz )

    Omen : http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/omen-threat-meter.aspx

    DBM : http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/deadly-boss-mods.aspx
    OR
    oRA2 : http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/ora2.aspx

    Recount : http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/recount.aspx
    ( and no, its not clever or funny to spam party/raid chat every opportunity with recount data, keep it to yourself and use it as a guide to try to improve your own stats, no one wants to see their screen full of spam from you )

    Healers should have something like :

    Healbot : http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/heal-bot-continued.aspx

    Clique : http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/clique.aspx

    Grid : http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/grid.aspx

    Another nice one for DPS is Mikscrollingbattletext : http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/mik-scrolling-battle-text.aspx
    ( helpful for showing procs very clearly so they're not wasted - mage 'Hotstreak' for example).


    There are MANY more add ons that people will use, but these are some of the more mainstream ones that really will make everyones life easier ( everyone you group with )

    And here I thought raids were so pathetically easy that you can just faceroll them, so do we really need addons to overkill?

    Anyways, yes raiders should get those addons.

    I however hate addons that is viewed upon as "necessary" or "make it easier" simply because in all honesty, everything in wow should be do-able without addons. To me it feels a little bit like cheating.

    Also I'm to lazy to update them everytime Blizzard throws a patch.
