When talking Bossmods...
Quantuvis for Raid Leading and standart buffs XRS is great. I actually use that and RABuffs while RABuffs is the tool I check every little stupid buff with. Be it equipping of Ony Cloaks at Nef, or can also check if I am doing Azuregos and which living people have the mark on, so I make sure they aren't in any relevant groups. You can check for literally every buff in the book needed in raiding.
Back on the Addons... in regards to Boss Mods.
BigWigs rocks, but does not help if only 1 person in the raid has it. And when your guild is already required these Addons and that Voice Comm and forums and roster, yadda you do not want to force boss mods on them I think.
I personally use La Vendetta Boss Mods. It's just so much better on FPS than Enemy Cast Bar, shows the bars though. And it's a lot more complex in things it can announce to raid on Bosses. It can be a bit spammy though (if your MT decides to spam every little option out there your screen can drown in it). Well if you don't want the spam you can always install BigWigs to block it... but err yeah ;) http://www.curse-gaming.com/en/wow/a...nd-aq20zg.html
Is there a mod / easy way to set MT's with oRA2 btw? (short of typing)
Going from CTRA to oRA2 with squishy and things probably was a nice thing for my memory usage, but damn it's annoying how little documentation there is.
I lead raids with oRA2 MT windows, the one thing I miss is the methods for getting someone to assist you for a target, now however I just assign symbols to each tank at the start and mark each trash pull accordingly which in turn actually speeds things up.
As far as editing the MT windows goes, I prefer the / cmds to the FuBar interface because I can type the stuff out hella fast compared to right clicking a lot.
/ora mt set 1 Borelock
/ora mt set 2 Flex
/ora mt remove 1
To even speed things up more I would suggest that you promote all your warriors and they pick a target and mark it theirself. It's abit messy in the begining, but when they get a hang off it you will have less work especially on farm runs/trash and in general it goes faster :)

I went from raidtemplate to raidrestore, never looked back.

I had similar problems with it when I started using it, I got an error message that wouldn't go away as soon as I tried to apply a template. The solution for me was to load up Raid Template do /console reloadui, after that all templates worked until I relogged completely. Maybe that will help for you as well. Pretty good addon, but RaidSwap seems superior now.
Does anyone know if there are any mods similar to RaidRestore and RaidTemplate that are currently supported and being developed? Both of those mods are now *dead* although RaidRestore still works pretty well. These mods have saved so much time and it would be a shame if there wasn't any supported version of them. Thanks.
