Power Auras is one of the most flexible, useful and underutilized addons around. With an impressive number of configuration options you can set it up in more ways than you can imagine.
The core of the addon is essentially configurable triggers based on a variety of in-game events and statuses, which then display customizable images or text on your screen.
To create a power aura, first install and enable the addon.
When you have logged in, type
/powa to bring up the interface and start creating your UI.
You can create auras for your entire account or just for the character you are on.
Click create to create a new aura or edit to edit a previously created aura.
Now the edit interface appears. At first this interface can be overwhelming but once you have used it a few times you will become quite familiar with it.
