Can anyone explain the benefit of displaying combat numbers is? Scrolling battle text, enemy damage taken combat text, normal damage numbers showing, whta is the point?
I see it as bloat and nothing more. Completely and utterly useless as far as pertinent information goes for a raid member/raid leader. What exactly is you seeing a 350k crit in real time going to do (or a 350k crit heal, etc etc).
The only instance that even SORT of makes sense is tanks to see damage taken, but by the time it happens, it is too late to do anything about it, so WHY display it? If you want to know what damage you took or what damage you did, just check Skada/Recount AFTER the encounter.
I, myself, do not display ANY numbers on my screen whatsoever (besides Skada healing/damage meters in bottom right because I am RL). Literally none and I love the screen real estate it provides me.
