Using ElvUI as well (pixel-perfect).

I will burn your soul.
Hello fellow Demo locks, i thought i would show the warlock community a screen shot of my UI as Demonology and Power auras also the dot timer is class timers and macros i use is. Well enjoy^-^
I just started playing wow again and I'm having trouble with finding the right addons.
'Everyone' seems to be using elvui nowadays. But I personally dislike the whole 'spacey'/modern theme it rocks. Quite frankly, I only require a few addons;
- A dot timer (with bars)
- A cast bar which shows latency
- A buff tracker (for int buffs etc. to recast dots)
I've tried dotimer, but first of all it hasn't been updated in a long time and secondly, it's absolutely horrible and counter-intuitive to set up.
What would you guys advice me, considering my fairly simple needs?

Weakauras is just THE addon for buff tracking imo. You can configure it to do much, much more, but it can do the basic task of putting icons on your screen that show buffs. (You can also configure it to show dot timers, and add bar dot timers as well) If you want this (sort of) same functionality, but with less options then Tellmewhen is a good addon.
Gnosis castbars is not the easiest to configure but once you've adjusted it to show the cast bars you want to see then it's the best out there IMO. If you want easy set up and don't mind not having accurate channeled spell ticks then Quartz is the go to one.
I'd also have a look at Affdots if you are going to play Affliction like you seem to. It's a simple addon that looks at the strength of your dots, and the running time of your dots to give colour coded advice on whether or not it's a good idea to refresh you dots with the buffs you have up at that time. Affdots could also possibly be the dot timers you need when combined with OmniCC. No bars though, just icons with numbers.
I'll try installing the following addons then;
- weakaruas for dot bars and buffs
- affdots for dots on steroids
Call me weird, but I actually like the standard Blizzard theme, even if it's not that functional. So I'd rather not change it too much.
Is there any way to move around the healthbars without changing their appearance btw?
It's been a long time since I've played this game, so forgive my ignorance.
I use Bartender, Tell Me When, and Xperls big debuffs for dots. SOme say what I use isnt optimal, but i have used them for so long I can read whats going on. If I changed, it would be to no benefit.
So really, its up to you. Play with what you like best and try them out. The only essential addon is sexy map :P
Oh and free tip, there's also an addon called addon control panel that will allow you to turn on and off all your addons from insdie the game, without having to log all the time.

I like your weakauras configuration
can you send me your weakraura strings please :-)
On most UIs I noticed that the DoTs are above the health bars, so I am really interested in that addon, cause I had rly hard time tracking DoTs on Wind Lord and his warriors. Anyone knows a name?
ElvUI and TukUI both can show dots above name plates without the need for tidy plate add-on. Looks like TukUI with some skin that's unique, to say the least.
It's a combination of many addons. I just pared most of it down and took what I wanted from each. Lui for the border. Dominoes for the buttons. Shadowed unit frames, Gnosis, Fortexorcist, Power auras, Recount, Omen, Affdots, Dbm, OmniCC, Sexy Map.
