    And this was the point of salty, mostly.

    Anyways, look at the top players, they are mostly using WoW default UI.
    because they don't want to get used to playing with addons because it might effect their tourney play where they can't use addons.

    this number of these players is so infinitesimal that they are not a very good sample to go by. a tourney capable player is miles above even most multiglad players.

    for the vast majority of us, from random bg heros to players consistently capable of 2.4k addons are a significant quality of life boost and can often improve the quality of our play.

    I'd say try out all the addons mentioned here and then ditch the ones that don't make a huge difference. The less addons the better imo.

    possibly moveanything (or you can use an even simpler script addon to move stuff around)

    + Some addon that will track the most important enemy cds like reck, shadow blades, bubble, etc. (you can't imagine how many times my warr teammate shattered sacred shield). Something like the old spellalerter or even that annoying talking addon if you actually set it up properly for a change would be fine. I just use power auras for it, since I also use it for certain buffs/dps rotation and combo points anyway.

    That's all you need to be competitive in pvp, everything else is fluff. You don't need a nasa command centre to gather important info.

    Personally I never use addons but, I would recommend new players to arena to use them but slowly ween themselves off them as addons really decrease a players awareness in arena and they also interfere with positioning. Gladiatorlossa is a good addon but once you learn to play without it you realize quickly you don't need it. That's just my opinion having played with a lot of different players and high and low rating as your awareness and knowledge of arena and your synergy as a team you'll find that you don't need addons plus addons can cramp your screen which reduces your frame of view and the bigger your frame of view the more you'll be able to see. That's just my opinion though.

    I see that you play a healer. I used to heal in raids before I pvped and for me the hardest thing was getting used to not using clique and mouseover macros to heal in PVP. If you are using addons like vuhdo, grid, clique, etc to mouseover heal I suggest binding target party 1,2,3 and healing with key clicks instead of mouse clicks. It is very strange at first and you will definitely take a while to adjust to targeting instead of mouse hovering but it makes you a lot better.

    Really don't need more than that, not being depented on addons is great. I have only used the two addons the last two years and I cant see myself going back to using a messy ui. The default have everything you need.
    Since I stopped using gladius I've become much more aware or what's going on instead of; "according to this addon this guy used this ability."

    , I better do this to counter him."

    I'm one of those players that likes to play without addons, my partners do use addons though so it's no biggy.
    From what I hear from other people, I'd say Gladius and Gladiatorlossa are the recommended addons for novice and even more advanced players.

    Can anyone recommend an addon for clearly displaying crucial spells to steal? I've got gladiatorlossa set up and everything which is great, but I'd like something that will show a big icon on someone if they've got something on them I need to get off ASAP. Any advice?

    Hmm, I'm fairly sure weak auras would work for that.

    Power auras for target and focus can do that.

    I've always seen people using power auras, but never have myself. I'll try it out. Is there a comprehensive list somewhere of steal-able spells I can configure in?

    Use WeakAuras over Power Auras, I used to advocate power auras (since like TBC), but weak auras is actually the stronger project now - odd as that seems, since originally it was a PowerAuras Light version

    I think the original power auras went out of date or something so I just switched to weak auras, same thing.

    Ah might be, it's just a habit. I've used the same exported settings since wotlk and never bothered changing.

    You can move the wow interface around, its just better to run without addons imo.

    Really no, the difference between playing with addons and without addons is really noticeable. Have any player that uses addons play without addons and you'll see a drop of a few hundredth points in rating.
    It takes 1000s of games of practice to be able to manually keep track of all cooldowns and everything else that's going on instead of having an addon do it for you, it has to become a second nature.
