World of Warcraft \ _classic_ \ Interface \ AddOns

It is important that you select the subdirectory Classic and then place the addon there under AddOns. So you can install almost all addons and then activate in the home screen of WoW Classic. If the game complains that the addon is outdated, you can confidently click the button »load anyway«.

Weak Auras 2

A flexible framework: Weak Auras 2 is one of the more modern add-ons and has been used in Mainstream ever since Battle for Azeroth. For example, with this extension for WoW you can better view buffs and debuffs. You will also be able to display auras, cooldowns, runes, totems, individual items, abilities, and more.

The addon gives you a lot of leeway to display all sorts of information about your character or opponent, including in certain dependencies. For example, you can only display the mage's counter-spell ability if it can be used. As long as the cooldown is running, the icon disappears from the screen.

Classic EPGP

50 DPK Minus: This add-on is not about DKP, but about the same. EPGP is an addon intended to provide better and fairer loot distribution. It helps directly when distributing the loot. The criteria for obtaining EP can be determined by each guild. This could be for example the participation in the Raid and Bosskills.

If you receive equipment from the raid, GP will be counted as well. The ratio of EP and GP then gives a priority (PR). Thus, in theory, the loot should be divided as best as possible and useful for the raid among the active raiders. Alternatives would be a DKP addon or for example Loot Council, which is also gladly used.

Picking flowers made easy: The collectors among you know Gatherer either from back then or from the current live version of World of Warcraft. If you're into herbalism or mining, you should download the Gatherer Addon in WoW Classic. It will show you the herbs and ores on the map, so it's much easier to think about a collection route.

In addition, you always see which herb or ore you have to collect in which area. However, the data must first collect it. This happens every time you collect a herb or ore while the addon is active.

For a fast database there was in the past the add-on GatherMate, with which one could import the data. Currently this does not seem to be in development for Classic yet.

Deadly Boss Mods

It also hides whispering messages and gives those who whisper to you an automated answer that you are currently in combat.

Data, numbers, facts: CensusPlus is like a census - if you are in Classic, you can gather a lot of information about the current players of your faction on this server at the push of a button: How many are currently online, which people are they, which Class do you play? Because with your push of a button, the mod reads the official chat command "/ who", but not just for your zone, but for the whole of Azeroth.

The result then ends up in the file CensusPlus.lua in the log folder World of Warcraft \ _classic_beta_ \ WTF \ SavedVariables. And if you're especially nice, upload this file to stats sites like WowClassicPopulation.com. They collect the information continuously and make fancy statistics, tables, diagrams and so on.

Real Mob Health

Exact life bars: Normally your opponents health points are not displayed. But only green bars that are always the same length - no matter if a raid boss or a level 1 squirrels is in front of you. With Real Mob Health, you can see how many health points it has right now, because the addon registers the damage a mob takes on a hit and how much its health bar shrinks.

Then the addon counts up how many HP your victim has in total. Simple example: you do 100 damage, the health bar goes down 10 percent, so your opponent had 1,000 HP. In the middle of the fight, this info does not bring you much, of course, but the trick of Real Mob Health is its memory function: It also collects the calculations of other players.

In the meantime, a stately collection of data has been collected from all mobs in the game, and their hitpoints are displayed concretely - so you know in advance whether you have a chance against the squirrel!

Vendor Price

Especially in WoW Classic, where inventories and gold are constantly in short supply, Vendor Price makes it easier for you to clear out: The one that brings the least amount to the dealer, flies out first.
