I cannot comment much on Affliction. I played it four years ago and always hated it.Originally Posted by dmrazor
There are several mods out there for destro. One destro lock in our guild swears by an addon called EasyDestro, which basically analyzes what is coming off of cooldown or has a timer running out on your target. It doesn't cast the next spell for you, but tells you what you should cast.
I personally dislike being told what to cast, because at times it may be better to wait half a second to cast something instead of pushing that cast back behind whatever cast timer you put in its place.
I use TellMeWhen. It has four buttons which you can configure. I have the buttons hide when they are off CD, and show when they are on CD with the timer on.
Left is Chaos Bolt. The icon pops up after I use it and counts down. The next is Conflag. It pops up when the ability is on CD with the timer on. Immolate is the next, but reads it's timer as being a debuff on the target. The last is Doom, which reads its timer like immolate, based of the duration left on the mob.
In this manner if you are not in combat nothing is being displayed, and if you don't see an ability on CD then it should be cast. I have the TMW window set just under my character on my screen for easy viewing.
I can edit this post later with a SS when I get home tonight if anyone is interested.
