I seriously can't see a reason for using combat text. I stopped using it mid-way through T12 since I never looked at it, there was too much going on for me to be looking at how hard my Obliterate crit for. It ends up cluttering the screen and I haven't picked up a combat text addon since then.

Here is a look on how mine looks on stone guards
As you can see the boss frames pop up just perfect with pitbull if you are willing to take the 5 mins to do the following :
Hope this gets you what you want out of your UI
Thats mine, after going back and forth with some different concepts i found that at least for my Paladin theres no need for unitframe addons
Most of it is scripts which i collected, edited and put into an addon.
You can see Skada and TSM of course, both i disable for raiding so the only addon i have left is holytrinity which is awesomely lightweight for all the juicy functionality its offering.
Its gonna need a lot of polish and tomorrow im gonna code some more notification icons, hide buffs with long durations and some other stuff iv got in my mind (after i figured how to code it light on the cpu).

Make sure you upvalue all the functions you need at the start of your file. Never create tables in OnUpdate - recycle them.

thx for the info, i appreciate it and if im hitting a wall i know who to spam with the question.Throttle the OnUpdate appropriately. For buff icons, 10 runs per second should be appropriate. More runs means even more accurate timers at the cost of even more CPU usage.
Yeah i hate it if people doesnt reuse stuff but simply write it down every time again...i remember a project for a simple check figure´s moving options and somebody i knew wrote like 300lines of code on a 30lines matterNever create tables in OnUpdate - recycle them.
Looking at many WOL you can see many mages are still holding on for that golden ignite to try and get a big combust but with the new 45s cd on it just use it when you can and gogogo... seeing 2 used in 7 - 8 min fights is just disheartning!
