I find Blizzard's default floating combat text useful because it pops up roughly over the head of the affected mob. So I can tell if I still have something ticking on a mob that should be left alone, for example.

It also makes it much more obvious when you get an "Immune" for whatever reason (attempted to stun, root, etc, or taunt went on DR, or if you try to attack an add your Warlock just banished on Lei Shi), or a "Deflect" (accidentally attacking from the wrong side on Emperor's Courage or Sha adds (in my case it generally lets me know I dropped my totem on the wrong side)).

Or if there's some effect reducing damage, and the numbers are suddenly all small (see for example trash in BoT (Cata) which could only take 1 damage from hits under 10k).

In other words, floating combat text makes it easier to notice when things aren't working.

as an advise for my own interface, enabling these "going wrong" messages could provide me with important additional information.
Thanks for pointing that out. Deflect and immune are probably the most important ones. Any other messages that provides information which otherwise will be missed?

On my combat text I don't display the damage I do but I do have it showing... Absorbs, Blocks, Deflects, Dodges, Evades, Immunes, Misses, Parries, Reflects, & Resists.

My UI is mostly WeakAuras, Bartender, Mik's Scrolling Battle Text and Pitbull, other than that I've got Grid, TidyPlates, Recount, Hermes (usually displayed on the left-hand side between Grid and Recount) and sexymap.

I've got a lot of WeakAuras, some for things such as reminding to refresh Weakened Blows and Sacred Shield but mostly for my own cooldowns, other class buffs and raid cooldowns (such as Pain Suppression, Ironbark, Spirit Link etc).

Still to do?

Probably sorting my buff display out, other than moving it a bit I'm not particularly unhappy with it.
Dael, tanking since the warriors couldn't be bothered to do it in Hyjal.
