Old Powa editions won't work anymore. If anyone is using outdated versions, you need absolutely to update the addon.
I find Power Auras broken.
However, I downloaded Weak Auras and it works just find for 35% HP, the legendary proc and anything else.
Also, you can easily miss a power aura just like you can easily miss noticing on the hp bar. Sure, a power aura is likely to be a lot harder to miss, but unless you are going to make it some obscenely obtrusive power aura, it wouldn't be that hard. And I don't know why you would make it obscenely obtrusive since you'd have to look at it for 1/3 of the fight.
Personally I just use a very small addon called Targethealthpercentage, have it next to the boss frame, changes colour at different points (50/35% if i recall), that way I can still see the boss's health as a statistic and then have the percentage.

I agree with you that addons are absolutely not needed for competitive raiding and dps - still with addons you can display the same informations in a better way. The "better way" anyway it's about personal tastes, so while i aim for an empty screen, others want shinies.
I rolled 100% old school until I acquired my Fangs of the Father daggers. I was simply using the standard UI, with no added features. Looked to the right corner to keep track of SND and Recuperate, and below my target icon for debuffs. However, the randomness of Fury of the Destroyer just made it impossible to follow with the naked eye, so I simply created an aura that'd flash up and make a loud noise whenever the buff had been detected. This allows me to instantly react to a completely random and unpredictable feature in the game that would otherwise demand a great deal of attention from me. Apart from that, the only other thing I "aura'ed" was Tricks, because I simply can't be assed to keep looking at it...
I've heard of rogues making an aura for Slice, Recup, Rupture, reaching 5 CP's..... Pretty much everything that you could possibly need to keep track off!
Point is, for some people looking at 3 different places and keeping track of timers, while reacting to the events in the game isn't too hard. For others, having one concentrated area with everything they need to keep track of is just "easier for the eyes".
To you it might be "cluttering of the screen". To someone else it could just as well be less confusing. Eye of the beholder, etc...
You are completely ignoring 1 significant part. What he had worked perfectly for him (as it does for me). In your example, your blizzard buffs were not working perfectly for your daggers, therefore making something else makes sense. Did you make 2 identical auras (aside from graphics) to both show up for each dagger proc? Probably not because the first one you set up was working fine for you right? That second one is just needless clutter because you already had something that worked great.
Again, I'm not knocking auras or people that want them. You did fine without a SnD aura using the blizzard buffs. Coldkill and I do fine without a boss hp aura using the hp frame. What I am knocking is the idea that you should add something else to your ui that supplies you with completely redundant information that you had no problems processing in the first place. However small Moxi's aura for that is, it is still redundant clutter if you have absolutely no issue processing that information with the hp frame.
By all means, keep arguing. I just want to know where to get the new Power Auras. I can't seem to find it in Curse Client.

You have to change your curse client to accept Beta updates for power auras since that's what it is currently listed under. The Dispatch aura worked perfectly, thank you!
