My UIs

I did a post a while back on my UI starrting Spartan UI as the core. Since then I've worked with KGPanels and Bartender myself to create a couple UIs. In End-game: Part III I have my previous UI. Thats a huge amount of screen space taken up by whatever I was using and if I was in a party, I would have the standard 4 player-unit-frames and they would be slightly larger than standard. Anyways, when I went and redid my UI, I cam up with something like this:
Addons, in order of appearance (and labeling)
  1. Titan Panel- For seeing my gold, exp/hour etc...
  2. Shadowed Unit Frames- my unit frames.
  3. Satrinara Buff Frames- Buff Frames. I like having a bar so I can see how quickly they are wearing off- very important for debuffs while tanking
  4. Sexy Map- lets me move my map (and make it bigger)
  5. Bartender. I have all six bars condensed down there to make my life nice.
  6. KGPanels allows me to have a cohesive background that pulls the whole bottom UI together
  7. Recount- (It is recount)
  8. Chatter- a bit more customization with the chat box
  9. IceHUD- so I can easily see my hp and my targets hp without having to attend to the bottom of the screen where I can't see fire/my purty character
  10. Omen (not shown)- knowing threat is good
  11. Quartz (not shown)- cast bars are nice

Most of the addons are the same, but I changed things up alot here. I only use this on my Enhancement shaman (atm) but I like the way it looks and may expand it to my other toons.
  1. Titan Panel- For seeing my gold, exp/hour etc...
  2. Shadowed Unit Frames- I moved my party frames down to the bottom of the screen because thats where I spend most of my time attending to. I have the boss frames up top, but that only appears for council fights and similar.
  3. IceHUD- so I can easily see my hp and my targets hp without having to attend to the bottom of the screen where I can't see fire/my purty character
  4. Quartz- I also use it on my other UI but didn't show it. Recently it has been acting up, but I can live with it.
  5. KGPanels allows me to have a cohesive background that pulls the whole bottom UI together. I have the same transparent background as I do in the other one, but I also have a solid black background which I'm not sure I want to keep. Having small gaps between my buttons/buffs etc... is weird, so I am keeping it like this for the time being.
  6. Bartender- I have my primary dps abilities nice and big so that they are very obvious. I use modifier macros* to make my life nice- I can fit all of the shaman's abilities into 24 buttons.
  7. Recount - need I explain again?
  8. Satrinara Buff Frames- I'm using the square buffs here because it fits nicer and fits the theme better. Additionally, I don't need to worry about the duration of debuffs as much as a tank does.
  9. Sexy Map- moves the map into the corner, also moves the objectives tracker to the side
  10. Chatter- chat options

For those of you who are curious, a Modifier Macro is something like the following:

#showtooltip
/cast [mod:alt] Earth Shock; [mod:shift] Frost Shock; Flame Shock

The first line makes it show the tooltip of whatever ability it is that way I can see the damage etc.... The second line is the meat of the macro. If I'm not holding down any modifier button, it will cast Flame Shock. If I hold down Alt it will cast Earth Shock and if I hold down shift it will cast Frost Shock. You can also use ctrl as a modifier, but I use that as my last modifier because it is also my vent ptt button.
