If you do go that route I would suggest not only the Raid Status plug in, but also those for raid icons and "improved" corners (allowing for mutliple notifications in each frame corner instead of just one).
The Tooltip-Border that comes with Caith UI should work.
Been using Pitbull and it's great for a 5 person group and works ok for 10 but for showing more players than that it just takes up to much room on the screen. Do you think is necessary to show everyone in the raid or just the 5 person group you are in. I always find it useful to see the raid composition and how many players we have when we are starting a fresh raid. I use Vuhdo for my general raid frames, but that's mostly just because I had it installed for healing.
Normally there's kind of a circle on their portrait to let you know but now that I have Pitbull, I don't see the circle anymore. You can then make additional groups for party's targets. I know I tested a phase indicator but it may still be in the alpha build and not yet pushed as a beta.
Try updating to the alpha version for the phase indicator.
Any information would be greatly appreciated, and thank you in advance.
Check the official XPerl site: time back, the DK runes didn't work in XPerl and this was a known issue. Of course, be sure you are using the latest release of XPerl.
As a healer I use healbot, but on my DPS toons, I use grid. It's no-frills enough for me, and I get some easy utility out of it.
For the warrior, I use it for Intervene and easy Vigilance buffing. For the shaman and priest, it makes a reasonable Decursive analog even when I'm in a DPS spec.
I've got it down for my personal portrait, target and target's target; but there are a few things that I can't figure out.
