I'm okay with buffs not having visible timers. On major buffing classes I pair up similar length buffs and cast them at the same time. The next pair gets staggered back a bit and then next pair, etc. Works for me but I'm a bit lost with dots and slows dropping without a message. I try to recast when mobs get to a certain level of health but it's obviously not efficient. I've been avoiding going the GINA route.

When I can in my head time my next cast of root or mez from memory to land roughly the second that it fades, I tell myself Iíve played this game too much

And Iíve played it far less than most

Definitely shouldnít need a timer for buffs when solo at least. You havenít memorized a fairly accurate idea of when theyíll fade from having cast them 98375 times before?

IDK how I feel about this statement just because when I played on Green, most raiding guilds required me to have Gina installed. And I was also playing a Shaman (and I'm playing it now) and I found the game less enjoyable with melees bitching me out 24/7 because I didn't know when 1 of my 10 buffs wore off of them, lol.

But realistically I'm on Blue now, and I've never had a group in the 40 levels I've played my Shaman here, and 44 levels I've played my Cleric here, and I just find it irritating when I'm solo'ing and no longer get messages for when my DoTs wore off. I feel like if I had had these DoTs before the "worn off" message was removed I would have a better idea of when it was time to refresh them, but I got them both all after the messages had been removed and it feels like I'm not solo'ing as efficiently as I could be (which is important when you're competing with other players for mobs and camps).

Not really interested in this for buff tracking ATM, feel like Gina would prob be better for that anyways. But when I saw this video (it was recommended to me by the YouTube algorithm; I didn't search it out, I wondered if something like this was actually allowed).

I was in that guild for 4 hours before I rage quit (most of my friends rage quit in under a week) because of how rude the officers were. This was long before Kunark came out, so it may have changed a lot since then.
