Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
I tried this last night, and damn! This is my new favourite mod.

I'll be telling all my friends tonight about this. Quartz is sexy! (replaces two mods for me too, since I was using Sorren's Timers to see the global cooldown.)
A tad buggy, but that will pass, and it's certainly solid enough to raid with right now.

The modular cast bar for focus is a great use too. I was tanking the other day and had my main healer on focus so I had a much easier view (versus unitFrame castbars) of when he was healing me, so I knew when a healthstone/pot was necessary.

Something to do with tradeskills went buggy for me the other day, but apart from that it's one of the smoothest introductions to a mod I've seen yet. I tried it out the first day I found it and disabled eCB immediately.
What bugs are there? I haven't noticed much in my week of using Quartz.

Addons aren't a crutch, they're tools to be abused by skilled players to increase performance. Like a carpenter using a hammer, a fisherman using a lure, or Xi using curse words.

Not quite sure if this is a bug, but it's definitely a feature that I'm missing from having used eCB for a very long time and trying out Quartz tonight. If you target yourself with a heal, you will see both a "target" bar and a "player" bar. Previously with eCB, you would only see the "player" bar and the mod was coded to hide the "target" bar in cases where you were healing yourself.
Just spent a good 10 minutes looking through both mods trying to find an option in either one associated to this feature, but it appears eCB put it in as an author's preference with no way to modify it directly, and Quartz has decided to forgo implementing it entirely.
Seeing two bars when you heal yourself is definitely providing a distraction to me so far, hopefully I will get used to it. Am I missing some configuration option in Quartz to change this?

I'm occuring at the moment is me watching my castbar closely more than watching the actual surroundings - but I guess that's just something to get used to.
Same here. The really funny thing is.. the latency bar like a mini-game in itself! It makes spamming the MT a lot more fun

Another problem is if i get interrupted just as casting reached the red part, and i end up /stopcasting the spell before it completes. Really annoying.

I am going to ask a retarded question. I installed Quartz and I LOVE it... but I can't figure out how to move it easily. Is there a config option to show all the bars so I can move them around? I didn't see anything like that in the config menu, but I very well may just be retarded.
Unlocking the bars makes them visible.
