    Large-format countdown/cooldown timer?

    I'm balls at remembering to keep Inquisition up, and looking up in the right corner at the small text stinks.

    Does anyone know of a cooldown addon that basically puts a giant countdown timer on the screen that I can move into my immediate field of vision?

    WeakAuras is also a useful, customizable tool to track basically anything ever. I use this for Inquisition/Rune of Power/ShoR/Sacred Shield/Savage Defense/etc.

    Takes a little bit of learning to use, but it's worth it IMO.

    I personally find TMW far quicker/easier for an "addon/coding rookie" to pick up and run with than WA, since you can pretty much drag-n-drop spells/items, and it's far more user friendly. However, WA is certainly more customizable and in-depth.

    TMW = Apple
    WA = PC

    Is powerauras the same as weak auras? I've been using powerauras for ages and haven't stopped yet.

    Thought PA stopped being updated? Had a few guildmates who swapped over because they were having issues with PA.

    As an iOS and Windows user, this made me lol. Maybe that's why I use both TMW and WA.

    When MoP was getting ready to launch the PowerAuras guys tried to do a complete rewrite that looked like it was going to turn it into WeakAuras (or looked damn close) but the beta versions we're horribly broken and never worked right and when testing was in full swing most people switched to WA since we wanted SOMETHING to track our stuff like we had on live. When MoP was released there was really no reason to ever look back since WA worked on beta, worked in 5.0 and is still awesome.

    I think WA is superior in almost every way to the old PA but never bothered to switch pre-MoP since it would have been a huge hassle.

    I swapped to WA when I came back to WoW for MoP and never looked back. It's far more customizable than PA, and the ability to custom code makes it amazing. I have somewhere over 500+ WAs for my 3 90s, (and miscellaneous guildies) and I would never go back to PA.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm trying to set up WeakAuras; is there a way to drag individual buttons around while being able to see how the others are positioned?

    Click the little green "eye" next to the ones you want visible while you're messing around.

    Using Clcret with a Holy Power addon.

    Normal view:



    View in the heat of combat, showing durations and cooldowns for all key abilities.



    The tooltips vary a bit depending on talents and stuff - such as Execution Sentence cd appearing instead of Holy Prism cd.

    That is not at all what my clcret looked like. I had two boxes, big one and a little one. Big one was the hit now box, little one was hit next. They were roughly what you have as judgement and holy prism I think. I have weakauras set up for all my major cds.
