Breakfast Topic: What addons can you not live without?

My husband is the king of addons. If someone, somewhere, devised a method of making his WoW experience just a smidge easier, he has probably downloaded it and tried it out. I, on the other hand, have this strange sense that addons are «cheating» in some way, and I don’t use them unless I can’t get through the game (or at least raid) without them! I’m not sure where I picked up that particular attitude, but one other significant difference between me and my husband is that he loves gadgets, and I’m not such a fan. Isn’t that kind of what an addon is? A gadget to make things in the game more convenient?

That being said, I can’t live without [hide]Deadly Boss Mods[/hide]. All the warning noises and flashing words and warnings to Run away! make me look like I know what I’m doing, even when I don’t. Of course, the raid leader requires us to have it, but I wouldn’t want to try raiding it without it. Otherwise, I’d probably just hang out standing in the fire. For the record, my husband’s favorite addon is [hide]Titan Panel[/hide]. He likes that pretty much every bit of information about his characters is one mouse click away, but I feel like it’s information overload.

What about you? What addon can you not live (or at least raid) without?
