Addons you HAVE to have

I was talking about addons/mods with my brother and while I am a addon junkie, he uses very few of them. So the question came up. What addons would you absolutely have to have if you were limited to only being able to have 5-10 of them?

wow no QuestHelper lovers here? I'm hurt. That said my list of beloved addons is much smaller.
*QuestHelper
*Auctioneer
*Healbot Continued (if healing)
*SSPVP3 (if PVPing)
*Automatic Gnome Therapist (great for spammers!)
GL!

-AutoProfitX
-BadApples
-ChatSounds
-EastWestPlus
-EasyCopy
-FluidFrames
-ItemRack
-MapNotes
-OmniCC
-Possessions
-RatingBuster
-RedRange
-sRaidFrames
-WIM
-XLoot*

15 and I was cringing every time I had to "cut" one :P
There's at least 20 more that are fighting to get on that list.

Note that my addon folder has some 200 addons or so
(not all active on the same character)
but the above are the ones that would seriously diminish the game if I didn't have on all.

Ops! I just re-read the OP.. you said 5-10 not 15, ouch.

Can't imagine how I'd cope without:

Auctioneer
Some bar mod (Macaroon, right now, by choice)
Chatterbox
SimpleMail
Some coordinate mod
Combuctor (or some bag mod)
DevTools

Really very fond of:
Auditor
FuBar_LocationFu
FuBar_ExperienceFu
flagRSP (or equivalent)
Atlas or Cartographer
MobInfo or similar databases of mob drops
LightHeaded

There's a ton of other stuff I like having, but the big fundamental things for me are efficient auctioning, unified bags, and a ton of buttons.

I don't have to have any. I learned in my first few patch days of hell not to get too dependent on anyone's mod. However, my vote for the best mod in terms of simplicity, play value, and overall support is hands down...

Clique

It vastly improves the user experience for anyone having to cast. I can do without all others, and technically can do without Clique, but I'd be a very miserable and disgruntled player if Clique packed it in and moved along to the Great Mods of the Past Graveyard.

Once again, great job Cladhaire!

One other mod I absolutely love, but not to the degree of Clique...

Bayi's Extended Questlog

It's yet another mod that really improves the user experience and is relatively simple to use and configure.
