    Recount solved the freezing issue a long, long time ago, but as many people have mentioned, Details is the better addon nowadays.

    I've not noticed a significant difference in the numbers my raidmates report from their skadas and recounts, what I see on Details, and what shows in the log so I'm not sure the accuracy difference is enough to matter, but Details is definitely way more robust as an addon and is regularly updated and tweaked. I've used DamageMeter, Recount, Skada, and Details over the years and the latter is definitely the most comprehensive, which is useful to me as a raid leader who might need to look at certain things during raid before the parse is uploaded. That said, the breadth of it means that navigating the addon can be a little daunting and it's not as intuitive to get around as Recount.

    Why does it really matter if its dead or not, Details is what ppl use these days.
    ^^This right here^^

    I did not even know recount was still around until my son said something about it the other day.

    It's still a very popular addon according to Twitch. Though tbh I've used Details for years and so has every Mythic raider that I've known in that time.

    Recount is the 9th most popular AddOn on Curse. So it's still used.

    Well to be fair the stock UI is pretty good.

    I've been using the Stock UI for quite some time now (with WA2 ofc, which you'd use with any custom UI anyways) and I don't see in what way it's bad (or why I should use ElvUI instead). I do however move the player/target/focus frame to the lower center and I also move the raid frames closer to the center.

    It's not bad, I just find it ugly as hell.

    Details, if not better, is at least more fun. Because of the way you can customize your name in it.

    Tbh most UI set ups are more distracting to me and are either too clustered or too sparse. Even bag addons that merge all the spaces stress me out. I hate seeing a giant grid box in the middle of my screen. Takes me out of the game

    As someone who still uses Recount, it does what I need it to do (track my personal progress) just fine.

    I don't need it for anything else.
    What I expect, not necessarily what I want, to happen within Battle for Azeroth:
    Zekhan to begin his hero's journey - Rexxar will die - Lightforged Forsaken Alliance - Saurfang will die - Vulpera Horde - Old Gods no earlier than final patch - Jaina and Sylvanas are NOT under Old God influence - Thrall will die - Sylvanas will kill Saurfang - Junker Gnomes Alliance - Jaina vs Thrall cinematic - Varian's "kindness" is repaid

    I use Recount but after reading this thread I tried Details. Too complex, can't even close the window. Uninstall.

    That's really dumb. I like using meters so I can try different things and see what works and what doesn't. If I didn't care enough to do that I don't see how the game would be worth playing. But oh yeah, that's so hardcore.

    The stock UI is ok if you move things around, which then isn't technically stock but whatever. All the same I don't know why you would want the extra clutter of the graphics that have nothing to do with gameplay. And most specs benefit from weakauras and other tools to keep track of cooldowns and timers. I'm not sure what the advantage of the default UI would be other than saving a few minutes for setup, but it's nice people have a choice and they can do whatever they want.

    Actual damage numbers is like one of the last things I use damage meters for. Interrupts, damage on adds, dispels, death logs, etc, is all stuff I look at way more frequently. I am a very, very long way away from hardcore.

    Although I do look at HPS on my healer, mostly so I can cry when the tank outheals me in m+.

    Recount is rather resource heavy like Details, although I find the latter superior. If you want to try something lighter but still highly functional without the complexity of Details you might give Skada a try.

    Details is awesome, better than all of those and you have many options, even to refresh in 0.5 seconds or when you want to, really.

    It's the best, detailed, as it says and gives you information that no other does, such as who prepotted before the pull. Lets you warn who died and what ability killed them.
    Let's you warn when you interrupt stuff. Overall, details is the best addon

    Who cares. I always am #1 in my skada or recount stats.

  18. #38
    Personally i think, only skada and details are the best to use, recount has huge problems, i remember even in some friend's computers, used to give them alot of problems and a lot of ram usage for no reason and i don't know why i never felt recount was totally accurate on numbers either
