Boss Encounters

BigWigs

Boss alert mod. It consists of many individual "boss modules", mini addons that are designed to trigger alert messages and timer bars for one specific raid boss each. Modules are activated when you target or mouseover a Boss, or if any other BigWigs use in your raid does. In most cases only one module will be running at any given time.

Raid Assist Mods

CTRA

CT_RaidAssist is your all-around raid mod. It can report hp, mana, buffs, and debuffs of anyone or everyone in your raid. You can set it to notify when someone is debuffed with specified types as well as notify when buffs you can recast fade. It can show 'MT Targets' which allow you to specify MainTanks's which all users in raid can then see. When shown, it will show you the target of the person set as MT. It's a bit similar to the Target's Target function though with this, the tank doesn't even have to be your target.

Raid Frames

Blizzard Raid Frames - Indicators

Configurable indicators for Blizzard Raid Frames showing time of buffs/debuffs on all units in the raid. There are 9 indicators for each raid member, one on each corner, one on each side and one in the middle. Indicators can be configured to show any buffs/debuffs of your choice and you can configure several buffs/debuffs in the same indicator. Some simple options lets you select to show only if the buff is missing, only cast by you, stack sizes and more. As an added bonus there's also an option to turn off the standard buff/debuff icons.

RaidFrameResizer

Increases the range of the slider for the Height and Width of the Default Raid Frames so you can make the default raid frames larger, or smaller (which also makes it a nearly useful addon for the default UI).

Misc Raid/Instance Mods

Am I Locked Out

Rembers which of your chars are saved to which instance/raid. Updates on login and every time you get the 'You are now saved to this instance'-message, a shift-click on the tooltip forces a manual update. So you don't have to log onto your chars to see if you can join that raid with one of your alts.

GTFO

This addon provides an audible alert when you're standing in something you're not supposed to be standing in. In some cases, you'll be warned before you start taking damage. It's particularly useful for individuals that play with their spell graphics turned down or for those that just need a little extra help being told to GTFO. It also helps out with PvP when you can't tell who's casting the AOE.
