In constructing my UI, I make sure mods that track HfB, SnD and Rupture are front and center and easy to understand. The ICE Hud mod tracks everything, except Rupture, very nicely, and I love that I can click the HfB bar it displays to recast it.
Right above my character frame are the Rogue Power Bars, that can be configured to track almost any buff or debuff you want.
The large bar at the bottom is the Spartan UI mod. It works well with bartender to lasso all your buttons into one place.
Omen, Recount and DBM are also in my UI, but they are secondary to tracking my meters, so their windows and information are pushed to the side.
I find Dash to be a very useful addon. I personally do not look at recount during combat as I prefer to concentrate on what I am doing and staying alive rather than the meters. However I do like the information to be readily accesible for quick reference between fights. Being able to store recount on the dashboard and to call it up and dismiss it again just by flicking my cursor to the top right corner of my screen if very helpful. While this is more to do with raidleading, panels like BigBrother and EPGP etc can also be stored on this for quick reference during raids.
As a note, this addon is out of date however it will work perfectly if you tick the box to load out of date addons and I have yet to have any problems while running it.
Another way to show DP tics is to set an event for it in MSBT and have it show as a sticky crit somewhere noticeable.
That's what I'm currently doing right now, but I have found that at times, it commingles two ticks and all of a sudden in the scroll area, I'll get "Deadly Poison 1532 (2 hits)", is this configurable in any way?
Also, it has been mentioned before that with the upcoming 2 set bonus of T8, every time you get a one energy proc, that means a tick happened, reducing the amount of scroll areas you need.
Awesome thread guys this helped me alot with clearing my UI up a bit more. Using Spartanui now as well and have been chatting with Parnic (the creator of ICEHud). His customizable bars are now in Alpha and I've tested it out with adding a Rupture bar. It works great and is pretty easy to setup. So for all you ICEHud users go get the Alphafile.
Here is a screenshot of it in action.
EDIT: I'm raiding at the moment and there seems to be a problem with this addition. Basicly you have to put in an aura to track on your target for it to show up in the bar. Problem is though that it tracks ALL ruptures on the target not only my own.
EDIT 2: Its fixed tracks only your own rupturebar now you can get it here: ICEHud

Reason: Rupture bar is fixed
First off, I'm a sucker for a slick UI so being able to see what other rogues are doing is really interesting for me, that said sparing myself a really dumb story about my early rogue-ing, I've been devout about Rogue Focus Classic - Addons - Curse rogue focus classic, my vision isn't the greatest so being able to clearly see, my energy, tic and cp's is really important to me.
I've also noticed a lot of people suggesting their personal preference for which buff bars to use, I personally use EBB for the mostly everything, but for important things, like my ruptures, hfb's and snd's I've been using Rogue Power Bars, Rogue Power Bars - Addons - Curse it didn't require a whole lot of figuring out and has the majority of things you'd need right off the bat. Pie.
My newest addition is Opie, (blue circle on left) it opens menu's for items that I rarely press so I don't clutter my screen with buttons
Thanks for that one, I just completely replaced AutoBar which contained the only buttons I had visible. Now I have a UI completely free of buttons. Icehud, EBB, cooldowntimers, chatwindow and minimap are the only things showing now. I guess MSBT, and a broker display at the bottom, and a bossmod. Ok, so just no buttons.
