Intellij has a feature where when you hit a breakpoint it'll show the values of the variables in the current scope. This is very useful.

It allows you to see what is going on with less effort and at a quick glance. It might show you things that are wrong that you weren't expecting.

Plus, I don't have to go and hover over a bunch of variables to see what their values are. It is also in the current context that I'm looking at instead of adding them to a watch pad and then having to go look down there where there isn't any context.
