My point of view when it comes to add-ons.

Add-ons like Gear Score and DPS meters should never be allowed in the game..

First you need to be invited to a raid, and when add-ons like Gear Score exist it doesnít matter if you know the tactics and if you would be an excellent member in the raid. High Gear Score becomes the only important component to gain a spot, I have seen in the other game one 4.5k GS out performe a 5.2k GS player.

Second, while in the raid, you need to keep the DPS at the very highest, above everyone else even. Otherwise, it will be allot of whining about that. So it becomes more important to make damage than move from the red/green stuff on the floor, and then the raid gets wiped due to that the tank and healer can't keep up with dps getting aggro or taking damage from the green **** they stand in.

It would be better to have some kind of statistics window which appears when the boss is down or when the raid has wiped. That statistics should also show how individuals has performed regarding standing in sh*t etc. not only how much DPS individuals has done.

For example, following statics could be good to have statisics on:

DPS done.
Healing recived. (Not over healing received)
Healing done.
Aggro time.

When it comes to add-ons that help with friendís lists and UI re-customization etc. would be nice to have.
