    I recommend NeedToKnow, it lets you configure bars on your screen with DoT timers / Cooldown timer / whatever.

    I use fortexorcist for dot tracking. It's pretty solid, and works with very little configuration (although it comes with a lot of things other than just tracking DoTs, which you might wish to disable).

    I also use gnosis for a castbar since it marks where the ticks for Mind Flay happen.

    i like to use Button timers and set up what dots and cd's i want to track on BAR 2 so i can freely see what needs to be used.

    A lot of different suggestions in this thread. But which one(s) are good for tracking dots on multiple targets?

    Tidy plates shows the different dots on top of the health bars of mobs.

    I use BIG spell icons on my target frame , they show the dot time like the hands on a clock when they end. no extra dot addon needed this way, just your xperl that does the trick.

    ForteXorcist is the best multi-DoT addon for Shadow Priests in my opinion.

    another +1 to ForteX here.

    I use ClassTimer and Power Auras. ClassTimer doesn't show Mind Blast as a dot so I use Power Auras for that.

    Using Weak Aura's to track dots / procs / dots on focus / Big CD's and CD Duration for every class i got.
    Using CooLLine+ICD (its the same CD bar from ForteX, but only the bar without dot timers) addon to track the short CD's like Mindblast and SW: D and synaps springs (and PW:S and PoM) and to track the ICD of weapon/trinket procs.
    Using tidy plates for multi dot fights with more than 2 targets to track my dots.

    Thats basicly all i need on every class i play (if u count grid with it)

    I'll tell you witch ones i love to use, Needtoknow(set up to track MB cd, VT and SW:P). And Tidyplates(this one helps a bunch in those multi dott places).
    Tidyplates show you the dotts on top of the plate frame. Witch is realy nice when youre tracking on several mobbs.

    NeedToKnow is my favorite too, it's easy to setup and and lets you create bars for anything you want, just the way you want it. http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/need-to-know
