Best Addons for WoW Classic

Recommended Posts


In this article, we're looking at the best addons currently available for WoW Classic.


Please note that we're not forcing anyone to use addons in WoW Classic. This is just my list of addons that I will be using when Classic goes live. If you're aiming for the authentic Vanilla experience without addons, this article might not be your cup of coffee.


If you're looking for a lightweight and minimalistic UI, you can't get wrong with TukUI Classic. It's easily configurable, and you can find more details about the addon in our TukUI Addon Spotlight.



Questie is a quest helper, and the addon helps you keep track of quest objectives and available quests on the map. Click here to download Questie or avoid it for an authentic experience.


Azeroth Auto Pilot Classic

The addon is intended for speed leveling to get you to 60 as soon as possible. As opposed to Questie, Azeroth Auto Pilot Classic will give you predefined quest paths based on your level, class, and other variables. Click here to download Azeroth Auto Pilot.


BigWigs Classic

The boss encounter addon is here to help you with Classic raids. The addon is designed to trigger alert messages, timers, and sounds for specific encounters. Not that DBM is terrible or anything, but I prefer BigWigs.

AtlasLoot Classic

Encounter Journal didn't exist back. Fortunately, we have AtlasLoot Classic to help offset that. The addon displays loot tables based on raids, dungeons, and more. Download it here.


Damage Meters

We all want to know how we performed, right? Skada, Details!, or Recount. The choice is up to you.



The addon is a framework that allows the display of customizable graphics on WoW's UI to indicate buffs, debuffs, and other useful data. You can download it over on WoWInterface.

TradeSkillMaster 4

The addon is a must for every goblin. It comes with powerful tools that help you earn gold and speed up everything related to buying/selling items on the Auction House. TradeSkillMaster 4 should work with Classic according to their blog post.



The addon is supposed to bring item selling to a whole new level. It should transform you into a merchant and let others buy items from you. We previewed IamAMerchant here. The retail version is available on WoWInterface.



The game does not give you the coordinates by default, so if you're not using quest helpers and are looking things up manually, MapCoords will display them on the map.

You can find more details about recommended addons and macros for each class in our WoW Classic Class guides.

  2. Place the files into your World of Warcraft/_classic_/Interface/Addons folder.
  3. Log in to the game, click the Addons tab located in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  4. Make sure all addons are enabled. Otherwise, they won't function at all.

What do you mean Galiant? Warrior / Mage / Shaman all have:


3.10. Threat Meter

A threat meter is indispensable in WoW Classic, as you should always aim to deal as much DPS as possible without ever pulling threat from the tanks. So far, ClassicThreatMeter appears to be the only working version in WoW Classic, but we will update this as more options appear.

      Blizzard have recently been sending out some more surveys for WoW Classic, this time related to changes that might be implemented for the "Classic Era" servers aka those that will not be progressing on to the Burning Crusade when it is released.

      The questions imply the possibility of something of a Classic+, with new features being added and the game possibly evolving past Vanilla into its own ecosystem, and lasting a long time to come.
      As spotted by Warcraft Tavern, there are several pages of questions asking about Classic Era servers, specifically:
      Advanced layering, where lower population realms would be combined into server groups and players would actually be able to interact between those servers. Possible new quality of life only additions to Vanilla Classic. Possible new content for Vanilla Classic, including "significant changes or new features" that might "dramatically change aspects of the game experience".

      Check out the full post over at Warcraft Tavern with a few more questions related to switching over to BC at all and which server players would most like to play on related to new changes added.

      The Burning Crusade Classic Internal Alpha has begun.
      The wowdev2 branch has been recently updated with a new patch! The very first patch of the Burning Crusade Classic is 2.5.0 Build 37796. While we currently have no information when the game becomes available for testing for content creators, make sure to opt in to the Beta today!

      Achievements have come to Classic! Well, sort of, and not all of them. RinesThaix has put together about 140 achievements to collect, but the mod is constantly being updated so there should be more soon.
      The Classic Achievements addon lets you not only gather those points up but also share and compare them, as you can link them in chat!

      English and other languages are also supported.
      If you want to check out how it looks in action, here's MrGM taking it for a spin:

      Blizzard have stated that the BC Classic beta is coming soon, but didn't specify when exactly. Today the Battle.net launcher's app catalog was updated with the TBC Internal Alpha, visible only to Blizzard but datamineable nonetheless!
      Right at the bottom there, the Internal Alpha most likely won't last too long and many have speculated that the beta won't be too long either, as there aren't as many issues to be dealt with as there were for Vanilla Classic. The release date is up in the air but hopefully Blizzard won't put it too close to patch 9.1, as many players will want to play both.
      In any case all we can do now is make sure we've opted-in to the beta (here) and wait!

      The level 58 boost option that is offered with the arrival of  Burning Crusade Classic has caused quite a bit of controversy and Blizzard have now tried to clarify the details on it a little, clarifying that the boosts will only be available on the new BC realms, while the Classic Era realms (where characters will stay if they don't transfer to the new BC  realms) will not have the boost available.
      Boost (source)
      I think it might be helpful to note that what we’re now calling WoW Classic Era realms start at Level 1, and we feel the same as we did two years ago: no Boost would ever be needed (or appropriate) there. When we originally laid out our principles for WoW Classic, the 1-60 experience was the only thing to which we could refer.
      Burning Crusade Classic begins at level 58, and we’re configuring this new Boost service to avoid minimizing the accomplishments of existing players or skipping any new content at launch. It’s for players who want a way to quickly join their friends in Outland.
