PVP - Do you track debuffs placed on you?

A part of me learning to PVP has been to track my own buffs. I do this with an addon called Srendar. I am curious to wether you guys track debuffs placed on you, in some other way than the standard icons in the GUI - which are very chaotic and dont give any real info that i can use at all. Im planning on setting up Srendar for the dot abilities that are killing me the most.

Im thinking that by doing it this way, i can more easily see when to dispell with my templar - or focus on defence with all my other chars. Is tracking debuffs in that manner something that people actually do?

    I track them but I’m dead before I can decipher them and do something about it. There’s just too many.

    I also use Srrendar. Mostly to track my own buffs so I’m not buffing too soon and wasting resources.

    Most of the time I recognize an effect by the visuals of the skill where it belongs to. That is an advantage to have tried out different classes. Some proc sets too.

    Never used debuff-tracker, there is already too much going on in a battle imho. Though I can imagine it might help understand your battles better and counter-action might become swift and more instinctive in time.

    I do use Action Duration Reminder for the abilities to recast in time (Mutagen for example).

    I use BuffTimers (very old addon) for short self-buffs.

    I limit ZOS' buff tracking icons to short self-debuffs ONLY. When I see them piling up, I know it's time to purge, cloak or LoS. Crude, but my eyes aren't good enough to do any better.

    The combat was not designed for this, as such the UI and debuffs you get are damn hard to read. The only times I ever look are in specific fights where I know there is a killer ability. vMA arena 7 for example, vCR overload etc..
