I was tinkering last night, and was pretty amazed/shocked at how many add-ons I'm running for me to get the information I want on screen, and how I want my UI presented... I was using 26 Addon-ons.
While addons can be great, I'm a little bit concerned about how much reliance I have to have on them to make the game playable/enjoyable for me. Most the addons I'm using are incorporating things that I feel should already be in the UI, or at least a toggleable option to turn it on or off.
While so far I've not really noticed any negative impact on the game, other than the occasional error pop-up (usually after an update).. the problems start to arise when the addon authors move onto other games, and for me it becomes an issue when I'm left with a less than acceptable UI that I've grown accustomed to when addons become out-dated and no longer function.
So, how many are you guys using? Is my 26 particularly excessive.. or are there others out there totally reliant on addons to mould the game into something they can play?
What are your favourite must haves?
