Post Must Have Addons

This Topic is for everyone who still play with the Blizzard Standard Interface

Many Addons can help you to play WoW like in „Easy Mode“.
So I collect a list of „Must Have Addons“ for you!

1. Important! Before we start!
Go into your World of Warcraft mainfolder and make a backup of the folder „INTERFACE“ and „WTF“!
Normally „C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\“

Lets start:

2. This Addons actually for World of Warcraft version 2.4.2!

“ Addon who allow you to edit the Actionbars, Bag and option Bar/s
“ All Bags are one Big Bag
“ Editing your Unit Frames
ModInfo 2 + MobHealth“ Advanced MobInfos and Mobhealth
“ Advanced Map with many different options
“ Assist you to manage your actions
+ “ Show you every Instance with all Bosses + Bossloot
“ Interface Bar with informations like Goldtracker or XP/h
“ Casting, Target, Focus Bar

Leveling / Questing:
“ Quest helper
“ Wide Questlog frame

Player vs. Player / Arena (PvP):

“ Arena Team Unitframes
“ Show you Stuns, Debuffs, HoTs and many other things
“ calculate your Arena Points

Player vs. Environment (PvE / Raid):
“ Advanced Raid Frames
“ Raid / Group / Party Aggro Meter

“ DMG Meter

I try to update the Addons daily. Maybe I will add some pictures, but not now.

LAST UPDATE: 24.06.2008

I hope i could help you with this Guide.

Have fun and gread loot in the World of Warcraft!

Well, I'd say there are no "must-have Addons". I didn't have even one of them and I was quiet confident with my UI. Everyone has to choose his or her own Addons, maybe by just looking through some of the several Addon-Pages like Curse or WoWi or whatever.
The only "must-have" may(!) be Omen for Players who can't controll their threat or Proximo in arena.
But in the end you could perfektly play this game without any Addon.
And by the way: The Addons you listed up are either fugly or use a **** lot of Memory. There are much better alternatives...

Must have AddOns?


Edit: Oh, yea, the serious part...
Well, some input on your suggestions:

Cartographer? No way, this baby eats way too much memory and has lots of features the average user doesn't even need. If you want to scale your map and have everything discovered and some coordinates added, get .

Bartender3? Get . But I guess you don't even need any action bar AddOns at all, default works fine for many people.

Auctioneer? Guess we can discuss that several hours actually. I myself think that Auctioneer is completely useless. Almost nobody is using the auction house to make lots of money efficiently. You can make some money off the auction house if you really need it without Auctioneer. This eats 3.5mb average, which is a bit too much. The only feature I like about it is saving the price you put an item into the auction house in with. does that for me

Mobinfo2? I must admit, it rocks. But this one also eats quite a bit of memory, and it's outdated a bit already. And almost nobody needs that much information on mobs previously killed. If you need a mob's health, use . (Note: If you want to use this with the default unit frames, you have to use )

Titan Panel? FuBar is more efficient and has cooler PlugIns. Enough said ;P I won't link that though, only FuBar would be rather useless. Visit if you want to get it, lots of PlugIns on there too.

Quartz? Ok, I must admit, I'm using Quartz myself, and it rocks, but still, for the average user it's a bit too much. I suggest .

That's my criticism on your choices. I myself have to say, there are not "real" must have AddOns, it's not hard to live without any actually

Ganz nett das ganze, ich (persönlich) würde es besser finden wenn du die Links so gestalten würdest:

Addon who allow you to edit the Actionbars, Bag and option Bar/s

Das man einmal einen Eindruck vom addon bekommt (weil die Beschreibung sagt ja bei manchen addons nicht sooo viel aus) und wenns einem gefällt kann man es immer noch downloaden
