Add-ons Extravaganza!

I put together a file list for my friend and decided this might be of use to others too.

This is what I’ve got in way of add-ons.

I mostly get them at:

http://www.wowace.com/files/ (Sort on timestamp to get newest on top)

http://www.wowinterface.com/index.php? (New and updated add-ons on the right side)

http://wow.curse-gaming.com/en/files/addons/ (This used to be my favorite, now WoW Interface is, but they still get stuff.)

(Some of these add-ons come with multiple parts in their own directories. (I.e. dependencies.) I’m not showing those. I’ll just show the main directories. If you get all these you’ll have more files in the add-on directory.)

Ace2
Backbone of the Ace add-on system. This is a support library that other “Ace based” add-ons use. Memory efficient. Get it because a great many of the below are based on Ace2.

AllPlayed
Tells me how long I’ve been playing. “How can you kill that which has no life?”

Atlas
Maps.

AtlasLoot
The loot to be found. Handy when you’re asking yourself “Do I want to go raid Hello Kitty Fantasy Island? What’s in it for me?”

AtlasQuest
Are you sure you got every quest there?

Auctioneer
This is working. Get it at http://auctioneeraddon.com/dl/AuctioneerComplete/

AutoBar
This provides a quick bar for drink, food, mounts, etc. That way I can keep my action bars free for spells.

Automaton
I primarily used this for auto-joining BG’s. It’ll also auto-repair your stuff when you visit a vendor that can do repairs. It’ll auto-decline duel requests. It’ll auto-accept raid and party invites and warlock summons. Etc. You can have it do what you want.

AutoProfit
This will automatically sell off your gray items (i.e. vendor trash) in your bag. (You can set stuff in a “save” list so it won’t be sold.)

Bartender3
This is my action bar add-on. So I can have my bars where I want them.

CallOfElements
Shammy totem bars. This doesn’t work as as the previous version yet. But it works.

Capping
I absolutely love the info you get in AB and AV with this.

Cartographer
This is like super-Gatherer+. (Get all the Cartographer add-ons as well. Mining, Herbalism, etc.) Very handy world map tool. And in AV you can see all your raid in little circles numbered by group. The class of the player is shown by color of the circle. And if the circle is flashing red you can see that they’re in combat. Imagine knowing exactly where every fight is in AV. (Or AB.)

Clique
I keep this and Healbot so I can do more. (This is good for when you use Grid (below) and where the raid would otherwise overwhelm Healbot.)

cyCircled
“Skins” the Bartender bars and more.

DamageMeters
How much DPS am I doing? How much healing am I doing?

DemonTrainerFrame
This makes buying warlock pet spells easier.

DeuceCommander
This provides the setup options for other Ace add-ons in one place.

DruidBar
This will allow unit frames to show the Druids mana when he’s in other shapes. (You’ll recover mana after shifting to cat or bear form. Handy to know when you’re full again.) Has it’s own bar, or it’ll provide the info for other unit frames (like X-Perl below.)

ElkBuffBar
I like the info on buffs and debuffs.

EQCompare
Is that robe really better?

Evpsets
Provides some idea what you’re after in the battlegrounds. Relevant mostly for 60′s with lots of time on their hands.

FuBar
FuBar_AnkhTimer
FuFubar_AtlasFu2
FuBar_BagFu
FuBar_BattlegroundFu
FuBar_ClockFu
Fubar_DamageMetersFu
FuBar_ExperienceFu
FuBar_FactionsFu
FuBar_FarmerFu
FuBar_FuXPFu
FuBar_GuildFu
FuBar_HonorFu
FuBar_MailFu
FuBar_MarkofHonorFu
FuBar_MicroMenuFu
FuBar_MoneyFu
FuBar_PetInfoFu
FuBar_PlayFu
FuBar_QuestsFu
FuBar_RecZone
FuBar_SkillsPlusFu
FuBar_SpeedFu
FuBar_TrainerFu
FuBar_VolumeFu

I like info. I used Titan Bar until I found that the Ace/Fubar collection was much better memory wise. And FuBar tends not to be. (Army acronym.)

GFW_AdSpace
Should tell you if that recipe/pattern/schematic you see for sale in the auction house is sold by a vendor somewhere. Should.

GFW_FeedOMatic
GFW_HuntersHelper
GFW_TrackMenu
If you’re a hunter you can use these. If not, ignore.

Grid
I like this for raids. It’ll do a compact 8×5 grid of everyone in AV. Then you can see their class, health, etc. This is where Clique comes in. I can shift-click on a person’s box to heal them, for example.

HealBot
CastParty/ClickHeal add-on. This and Clique about covers it.

ICU
This is AV magic for hunters. Target the enemy off your radar like you’re some spy hunter.

InFlight
Got time for that bio?

ItemLevel
How good is that item? No, really. “Level you can use at” is not equal to “level of how good it really is.”

ItemRack
This is your weapon/outfit swapping add-on.

JIM_CooldownPulse
It loads with a heart beat. I think it works.

MetaHud
A very configurable Hud.

MikScrollingBattleText
This is a Scrolling Combat Text competitor.

MobHealth
This will tell you how much health that mob really has.

MrPlow
This arranges your bags. Handy.

OneBag
OneBank
OneRing
OneStorage
OneView
This is a nice set of inventory add-ons.

oRA2
I don’t raid much, but when I did raid this fired up the Main Tank’s targets. It’s supposed to work with CT_Raid.

Prat
My chat channel has never been more organized.

RecipeBook
Hmm. This does something.

ReverseEngineering
This comes in handy for leatherworking, engineering, etc. Where one item is made of other items that are made of yet other items. Try it.

SimpleCombatLog
This really works. I love the info I get. I hate it when I’m crit for *1337* by a rogue. Punk.

simpleMinimap
Mini-map adjustments.

StitchUI
This is a crafting queue.

SuperInspect
For those that need to compare themselves with others, and compare those others with yet others. I got it a while back because it’s how I tracked my own +Healing and +Resist info.

TrinketMenu
ItemRack will handle trinkets. This is better.

Warmath
This is similar to ItemLevel. However where ItemLevel looks at stats, this goes a step farther. This appears to be a realistic item level.

XLoot
Quick looting+.

XPerl
I used to use Classic Perl Bars. Now I use XPerl because I like the configuration possibilities better. And there’s arcane bars for most units. And it looks good. I like it a lot.

ZHunterMod
This is a collection of hunter add-ons providing pet, aspect, tracking, trap pull-down action bars. Handy to free up your own action bars for /emotes. I keep the pet, aspect, and trap menus enabled. I use the GFW tracker add-on.

Anyway, that’s what I play with.

    One of the problems I find with large collections of addons is keeping them up-to-date with all the patches Blizz keeps throwing at us.

    I use Curse-Gaming to track my favorites and let me know they are updated, but it’s a manual process.

    If you know of an automated addon that will tell me when new addons are available and will NOT send my email address to every spammer and account-hacker on the planet, I’d love to hear about it.

    Good blog, too. :)

    Thanks for putting this list up! I’ve been looking for a good action bar addon for AGES! I’ve tried dozens of them (G15, Discord, and others I can’t even remember now), and Bartender3 is by FAR the best I’ve used to date. Coupled with FuBar, it’s become ridiculously easy for me to manage my action bars the way I want, without cluttering up my playing view too much. Thanks SO much for mentioning it!

    I also installed most of the ones you’ve mentioned (most notably, the various FuBar addons), and so far I love them all!

    It was also good to have been reminded to download DamageMeters. I’ve been meaning to get it for a long time now, and always seem to forget to grab it while I’m getting others. My guildies and I use DamageMeters quite a bit when doing raids (and it lets me know when I should be looking for new weapons when, as a Hunter, I’m not at the top of the meter, lol).

    Anyway, thanks for posting this list! These addons are great!

    holy shizzle that is a lot of fizzle mods 0_0. Although I will have to try out some of em, like Grid hmm and ICU

    I just found this tonight. It’ll update the Ace files automatically for you:

    http://www.wowace.com/wiki/WinAceUpdater

    And the download itself is at
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=178751

    It slow, but…

    It read all my Ace add-ons, and then went through and checked each one, and updated the out-of-date ones. And you also get a list of what you don’t have! (As if you needed more!)

    And I’m glad my list was of use. (Now I’ve just got to tell my friend to read my blog already!)
