Ok so I'm a prot pally if that makes any difference

So I've been trying to get into a raiding guide for awhile now and while I'm looking I decided to study up on a lot of things mostly addons. My main question is what does weak auras do? Is it anything like debuff filter? (What I'm using currently)

Another question I have is what are some good addons that a tank needs?

I currently use:

DBM

Omen

Tidy plates (probably going to switch to threat plates)

Gtfo

Bartender

Just to name the tank oriented ones

Any others that would benefit me?

Thanks for the read!

I know as a general UI setup a lot of people like Elv Ui 

 

Found at http://www.tukui.org/dl.php

 

Sadly as a non tank I'm not familiar with any "tanky" ones :(

 

Have you got any pictures of your UI at the moment?

I like the health frame set up, but my ui is ok as it is

I'm just curious about weak auras and other addons that some high end raiders might use

well, I'm not certain on the details, but I beleive weakauras does generally the same thing as TellMeWhen (Which I prefer)

 

what I know is that TellMeWhen (and according to alot of comments on various forums, weakauras does the same) allows you to create an icon that will appear on your screen when certain requirements are met.

 

Example given:

I have an icon that appears when my focus target (which should be the other tank in this case) has one of the various tank debuffs that requires a tankswitch.

The icon that appears will show up as soon as the offtank gets the debuff and it will also show the number of stacks.

 

You can also use it to make icons appear for Spell cooldowns, internal cooldowns (such as trinkets or talent procs), buffs/debuffs (like the tank one mentioned above), item usability, health conditions (Icons that show when you have a certain amount of health) mana conditions, energy/rage/runic power/focus conditions, and ALOT of other aspects.

 

One thing to note is that these icons are not clickable (I beleive it is possible but very limited in options), instead they will simply show up to remind you of certain things.

 

I have nearly no knowledge of the way WeakAuras works, but it should do the same.

If you decide to use TellMeWhen I will warn you it is a bit complicated to begin with, but as soon as you got a couple of icons made it becomes easy.

If you have any problems with TellMeWhen specifically, let me know since I do know alot about TMW.

 

I hope this has shed some light on the matter.

      I know shamans are kinda messed up right now, what else is new.
      But I'm up to 900 and my already underwhelming DPS has seen no significant increase. I'm pretty sure it's tied to my low haste rating, but I'd like to make sure and see if it's just that or something else I can work to change.

      I'll Sim around 760k, This week I got 630k on Krosus, going up to 900k on Skorp and Tich.
      I feel like this is all far too low, one of our top dps is a warlock at i897 and often easily goes 900k and up just on single target.
      I could really use some help figuring out what I've done wrong and what I could improve.

      My usual priority rotation works as follows:
      >Maintain Landslide/Flametongue/Hailstorm
      >Doom winds when off CD and Stormbringer proc'd.
      >Stormstrike when proc'd
      >LavaLash when proc'd
      >Stormstrike when off CD
      >Lavalash when 90+ Maelstrom
      >Rockbiter when -90 Maelstrom
      Feral Spirit-Crash Lightning combo and Doom Winds I'll sometimes delay if there's an add/burn phase, and I have a habit of refreshing Flametongue and Hailstorm on CD if I don't have any procs. I'll also occasionally mismanage Maelstrom and need to do 2-3 Rockbiters to get back up to speed.

      My opener consists of: Prolonged Power>Feral Spirit>Rockbiter>Crash Lightning>Flametongue>Frostbrand>Stormstrike

      So I was raiding with a rogue that was doing around 750k~ dps, i'm still learning assassination and i hover around 450-500k because I'm bad. However I noticed he was using deadly for a lot of the fights even though he was specced for agonizing. Should I be switching back and fourth?

      I've been playing with the ElvUI and recently started working on my Enhancement Shaman.  But I noticed that when I am in combat, practically every skill/talent I use shows up above my character bar in a series of bars, with listing each skill or talent I use.  I cannot figure out how to remove those as they tend to clutter everything up and I already know what I am using, so its unnecessary for it to be repeated in bars above my character.
      How do I remove those?  I've been trying to figure it out but the set for ElvUI is a bit confusing for me and I have tried a few things which I ended up reverting because I mucked up things.
      So have need of some assistance please.  I shall endeavor to go repeat this phenomenon and take a screen shot so you can see what I am referring to, and attach it when I get it.
       
      Edit:  Here is a screen shot showing what I am talking about.  Please note items inside yellow square on left bottom of shot.
