    Here's an idea I'm playing with for tracking DOTs/Cooldowns/etc. in a relatively compact way. The Cast bar/icon section is Weak Auras. Some interesting things:
    • Display "duration remaining" on DOTs as the number of ticks remaining rather than seconds. The reasoning is time between ticks varies with haste, but you always want to recast a DOT (at least as a priest) when there is one tick remaining. Simplifying the display in this manner makes the information easier to parse. "On the left hand side? Cast it. On the right hand side? Everything is fine (but you can easily check the status of cooldowns/dots/etc if needed).
    • Display "dependent" information on icons. For example the damage of mind blast is largely determined by the number of shadow orbs that are up. Displaying the count of that buff on the mind blast icon is valuable, it saves space you might waste displaying the number of orbs you have (on their own, shadow orbs are basically useless). See also archangel vs evangelism stacks
    • Prioritize the icons according to when they should be cast. Just because mindblast is off cooldown doesn't mean you want to use it (ie, you'd delay it to recast VT/SWP/DP unless you had a shadow orb and did not have empowered shadow
    I think with a little bit of effort you could probably create of set of auras that guided you towards a "near optimum" play style for any class. There will always be tricks to improve DPS, like delaying the use of a cooldown for a burn phase, but over time you could probably write all of that in. Such a set of aurs would be valuable for new players learning how to play a class or experts who sometimes fail to pay attention to absolutely everything going on in a complex encounter. So far as I can tell I wouldn't be able to create a setup like this using Power Auras Classic 4.x but it may be possible when PAC5 is finally ready for general use.

    The above is more of a proof-of-concept than something I'd be switching to right now, but I think there are promising ideas here. Maybe somebody else will take something from it or inspire me to improve the idea.

    As I had asked about ticks display in a previous thread then I am very interested in just how you managed to get the ticks displayed as a counter on the icon.
    Would you have an export, or the custom trigger script you used to achieve that ?

    I added the details to the video description: pastebin links to import strings. It's a pretty simple combination of a trigger that records haste when an aura is applied and a custom display text that calculates the number of ticks and remaining ticks based on the haste recorded when the dot was cast. It works well enough to prove the idea works but it's not exactly something I'd hold up as a shining example of spectacular lua skill.

    Feel free to comment/give tips on how I can improve my UI.

    I hate the "range check" in the top left corner. I try to hide it, but it keeps showing up the next time I'm in combat.
    I want to permanently get rid of it.

    Almost where I want it. I have't figured out a way to get rid of the Aura's on oufSlim and just them set very small. Capping, I can't get outlines to work on that. Phanxchat is fine, mostly, I just can't get the font sizing to work, thus the mismatched font, its the only one that isn't giant or so small I can't read it.

    I'm using something along those lines as well, but I do think yours look quite a bit better than mine. Would you be able to upload it by any chance? :3
