Weakauras - Incredibly useful for tracking buffs, debuffs and other information. Use this to make your
procs noticeable, show when
is off cooldown and more. Everything here is customizable.
Skada - A lightweight damage tracker. Useful to see how you are doing compared to your teammates.
Omen - A threat meter.
Sample WeakAuras for Fire Mages
Here are some of the WeakAuras that I use for Fire. These help to track charge spells like Phoenix's Flame and Fire Blast (with or without Flame On), as well as cooldowns like Combustion. They are not perfect! These auras are what work for me, personally - your requirements and UI might be very different. The beauty of this addon is how much can be tweaked.
To use these, open WeakAuras and select New --> Import, then paste the string.
Fire Blast (no Flame On)
Fire Blast (with Flame On)
Fire Mage cooldowns
WeakAuras on Wowhead
WeakAuras is a handy addon that flashes a useful alert onto your screen related to important abilities--cooldowns, durations, etc. However, it can be tricky to configure especially if you're new to it, so we've set up basic Weak Aura customizations for every player spell, including intelligent default auras.
Just visit a spell page (
) and click on the red "WeakAuras Export" button to open the panel up. Click "Copy" for our default aura, or "Customize" to easily change your alerts!
