    I recommend Omen threat meter, as well as any mod that reports your resisted taunts in raid/say/party chat.

    Anyone want to put together a formal Mods post with just as many relevant mods as possible? (Not based just on personal preference)

    Fubar Users:
    • WarriorAlertFu - (Note: This didn't work on my system and created a deadzone, use at you rown risk)
    General UI:
    • Bartender 3 - (Amazing for cleaning up screen realestate)
    • Squeenix - (Combined with the above, and you have much more viewing area, w/o large addons like Pitbull)

    I'm new to addons and UI changes and whoever puts this list together can I recommend a short description of what they do here's my current set up:

    Deadly Boss Mods - Gives raid warnings of boss abilities
    KTM - Threat meter (guild is currently testing Omen)
    ItemRack - Enables quick change of gear
    Quartz - This is a caster orientated addon (my mage uses it) but it has useful things such as swing timer; a more customisable cast bar for mobs which I find improved my reaction to interupts.

    Used to use combat monitor - until it started giving me errors whenever I targeted any of the mobs in Moroes' room Now upload all fight stats to wow web stats which enables me to see the same things.

    UI:
    Xperl Raid frames - Mainly as it enables me more space on my screen (play on a laptop)
    Metahud - This was the single biggest improvement to my play - with my health right in front of me I find swallowing pots, healthstones and last standing much better timed
    Bartender - For customised bars
    Fubar - durability and performance indicators (tho I know theres a lot more this can do)

    hmmm... just noticed non of these are particularly "tanky"

    Banzai is pretty neat, it reddens the persons that are having aggro in your agUf (should work with pitbull too).

    My general setup as far as it is tank related:
    agUf with banzai
    natur enemy cast bar
    Item Rack (how I love thee )
    Omen (which I more or less forced on the raid by removing KTM from my harddisk :P)
    Deadly Bossmods
    Recount (has a very nice timeout function in order to analyse, what went wrong as well as some other gimmicks)
    Simple combat log
    SCT

    I recommend Pitbull unit frames. It has a feature where if a member of your party/raid is being targeted, his bar will turn red. This is especially useful for paladin tanks that don't use a taunt macro; they can click the red bar and use righteous defense on that.
