Addons i use

Post by Ronjambo on Sat Feb 04, 2012 11:27 am

Hello,
most people who play world of warcraft will use some form of interface addon.
I get most of my addons straight from http://Curse.com/ but when wow publish a major patch and kill all the addons with interface updates sometimes i have to go to the websites of the people who build the addons to grab the latest versions of the addons i use ( for example the 'auctioneer suite' is usualy updated and beta versions are available on their website before they publish it to http://Curse.com
curse.com have a dedecated section for world of warcraft interface addons and they also provide a client application that will manage and update your addons for you however i advise that you do not install the curse client,
for a guide on how to install and manage your addons yourself goto http://youtube.com and search 'how to install wow addons' there you will find many video guides posted by wow lovers that will teach you how to do this for yourself.

here is a short list of the addons i use which can be found at Curse.com

Addon control panel,- allows you to turn addons on and off and /consol reloadUI at the click of a button without needing to log out.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/acp

Auctioneer, a powerfull auction interface addon that scans the auction and gives rough quotes for items values based on the prices people post the items at, and your own sales figures.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/auctioneer

Bagnon, a nice addon that puts all your bags into one big bag that you can resize and configure to your preference, i dissable the guild bank part of this addon as i prefer to see the original guild bank interface.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/bagnon

Chinchilla minimap addon, this little addon will allow you to resize reshape and move the minimap, i find it usefull for when i am gathering herbs and mines.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/chinchilla

Gatherer, love this addon it saves the coordinates of the herbs and mines that you gather and mark's the nodes spawn positions on your world map and minimap so that you dont waist so much time flying round in herbless/mineless area's when you are gathering. it will also share the node info with guild members and i find that
alot of our guild members use this addon.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/gatherer

Postal, this addon is usefull to me because i post hundereds of auctions and so alot of them expire, it puts a 'open all' button onto the mailbox interface and so i can click it then go grab a coffe while my bag fills up, then repost the items in auction hehe.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/postal

Prat chat addon, this addon allows me to configure the chatbox and it lets me coppy text from the chat, i set it up so that it looks like the default wow chat and mostly just use it for coppying links from the wow chat, but i also set it to log the last 10 lines of chat that got posted before i logged out just incase i miss a wisper then get logged out by the afk timeout.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/prat-3-0

or just the "Prat Subtle Chat Copy Button"..
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/prat-subtle-chat-copy-button

Deadly Boss Mods, this addon is used by most raid and dungeon players, it gives text and sound warnings and timer bars that help you through your boss fights.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/deadly-boss-mods

Deadly Boss Mods - WotLK, BC and Vanilla mods
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/dbm-bc

Map coords, this just gives you the minimap coordinates of you and your party members, it can be usefull for when you are hunting rare monsters / npc's.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/map-coords

NPC Scan, this addon will play a warning sound and give you an easy target button on your screen when you find a rare (silver template) monster / npc while traveling around the world of warcraft maps and zones.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/npcscan

Recount, this addon will give you rough figures of your and your party members, healing and dammage - taken and done, i find its figures to be rough and not very accurate.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/recount

Omen, this is a threat meter that will warn you when you are about to take all the agro from the tank, or lose agro when you are the tank.
http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/omen-threat-meter

A couple of others that I use is:


TomTom
I love this map addon .. it gives cords .. and I can just ctrl click on the map where I want to go, and U get a waypoint arrow up on your screen to follow!

Bagnon
Gather all your bags into one big bag .. also do the same with your bankbags .. also .. with this addon u can check your bankbags by shiftclicking on the bagicon down on the rightside inside your own bags! you can also check all your alts bags ..!
Another fine thing is that if u mouse over an item, it will tell you if any other items on any of your alts! If you mouse over an recipe, it will tell u who learned it, and who can also use it!

Altoholic
This little fellah will help u in the way of keeping all info about your alt to your clicking! It check mails, auctions, bags, skills, talents .. all there is to know! It can even follow your quests ( it need databroker )

TradeSkillMaster
This bugger can help you in all your tradeskill .. it can Mill in hypderspeed, or prospect faster than a GM .. don't open your bags .. open tradeskillmaster, it will show u your herbs, ore or leatherscraps .. click them, mill/prospect or make leather... on the fly!! NOTE: This addon require sub addons to work fully functionally! ie. the sub for prospecting or milling..

Thanks Ron and Shaddiz, very informative posts and thanks for taking the time to link. Addon Control Panel is my new must have.

I love addon's and use many, however having a low end laptop the ability to set up a profile in ACP to disable all but the very minimum for when I join LFR is such a time saver.

Only just started using Altoholic after a friend informed me of the ability to view my bank characters Guild Bank without logging back and forth Smile

I use most of the addons posted above and a few others, primarily I prefer addons that provide information without alt tabbing over to wowhead, favourites are as follows:


Carbonite - World of Warcraft Swiss Army Knife , chat, quest, gather etc only really use for the google maps style in game map and waypoints.

Atlas - Provides maps of raids, dungeons, BG's etc. For some reason the authors have split this addon into zones so if you want maps for all areas be sure to download the added packs linked on the main page.

Atlas Loot - Provides loot tables for all major encounters in the game, not just boss drops however, it has PVP rewards, faction rep purchases and crafting tables for primary professions.

Ackis Recipe List - Expands your skill table by adding a scan button which will provide information on all the recipes you are missing and where to obtain them.

Collectinator - Works pretty much the same as Ackis but provides the same information for vanity pets and mounts a must have for all you up and coming Pokemon Players (sigh)!

Finally (I have others but can almost feel your pain from reading so will omit from posting) Fishing Ace - If yo fish and don't want repetitive strain injury later in life then this allows simple right click casting and automatically adds lures if carried.

Happy Hunting

yeah .. I'm using alot of other addons too .. like collectinator, archy, gathermate2, higherlearning, ackis, fishingbuddy ..
Reason i didn't mention these, is that it's not a "must have", "mandatory" addons .. it's more for self preference.. ( I know I didn't mention Healbot or Wohdu .. I don't like it, and I actually proved to DrDread that one heal faster without it :S )

BUt .. there's two addons I feel that is really needed, that I forgot to mention!!

BossTactics
Shows tactics, where to stay for tanks, healers, dps! Can out simple tacts into raidchat .. have a visual overlay to map of positions!! It's a must have until all the boss encounters is known .. and yet still useful if u pug, an someone don't know the tatct..

TidyPlates & Tidyplates Threat
Changes the nameplates on you enemies, and will show u what targets u have/lost aggro on!! A must have for tanks imo!!
( I recommend both of them for tanks .. but it will also show dps in colorchanges when they are closing in on taking aggro!! )

I would recommend everyone who rely on WohDu or HealBot .. to go a guild HC or something .. and NOT using it, and see that your healing will become better!! Less overhealing, more precise healing ... maybe to try together with using

Grid
Grid is a party/raid unit frame addon. The compact grid of units lets you select a group member quickly, while retaining a good overview of the whole group. Its aim is to display as much information as possible without overloading the user. It allows you to customize what information you see, and how that information is displayed.

I used to be completely locked on to using Healbot in BC and WoLK .. and couldn't heal without it .. after I restarted playing, I didn't wanna use it, and I heal better and faster now... ( ofc, as long as u keybind your healing, unless your'e a clicker )
