With all the procs on gear now , I find I am often unable to see how long or how much is left on my single and group wards as  I often hit the max icon limit in the Window thats shows buffs and spells cast and they dissapear off the end of the window.

What would be perfect would be another window which would contain all the spell/gear proc icons only , leaving the other window for buffs and spell cast icons.

I think if you hover over the current window and scroll with your mouse the line of buffs will go up and down

You can also change the size of your buffs window so that more will show (with default UI anyways).  You might need to turn off "click through" to do it.  I raid and have a ton of buffs and never run out of space.  It is, however, incredibly annoying trying to track a buff duration with buffs bouncing around as one finishes and another is cast, etc.

That really wouldn't help mid-fight in a raid.

I have my maintained window as big as it can get without completely taking over my screen, AND keep it scrolled to the bottom, and still cannot always see my wards due to the number of procs that sit in my maintained window. I strongly support a new window to stick all those procs in, or being able to filter the maintained window. Filters, of course, will only work if there is no limit to the number of buffs that show. There are currently UI additions out there that will filter certain spells to their own window, but if the spell happens to land above the max number of maintained buffs shown, it will not show in the filtered window.

What Malachani said is accurate. The spell effects window can only show so many effects, no matter how big you make the window. It appears to stop at 45.  The maintained effects window, which is very important, and most likely what Malachani is talking about, seems to cap out at 30 effects, which kind of sucks.

I really like the idea of a new window for procs. I also have problems monitoring my wards with all the procs that keep filling up my maintained window.
