Best Addons for WoW Classic

Recommended Posts

43925-wow-classic-section-class-guides.j

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

Disclaimer

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.

TukUI

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

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.

WoW-Classic-Recount-Addon-1.13-300x157.j

WeekAuras2

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.

IamAMerchant

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.

MapCoords

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.

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.

      Onyxia has been recently defeated in WoW Classic by a raid group comprised of Druids only.
      Reddit user fouronnes and his raid with 32 other Druids have downed Onyxia in WoW Classic.

      Logs
      The raid was able to defeat the boss in a little over 10 minutes. Logs can be accessed by clicking on the image below.

      Queue times return to some WoW Classic realms with a high population amid the coronavirus lockdown and character transfers. Firemaw (EU) players report 3-4 hour queue times on a Sunday, urging Blizzard to lock the realm and a similar situation is occurring on Incendius (US).
      Redditor ANTRagnarok came up with a graph while waiting in the queue and it turns out you must log in at 4:45 p.m. if you want to make it to the raid that begins at 7:30 p.m.

      Players are urging Blizzard to lock Firemaw (EU) on the official forums and offer free character transfers, as many do not want to transfer to different realms using the paid character service.
      The situation was apparently worse the day before with queues exceeding 3,000 players which resulted in 5-6 hour queue times. Redditor Aoussar123 reports that people are idling in cities hitting the space bar every once in a while to stay logged in which makes things even worse.

      Incendius (US) is facing a similar situation, but the queues aren't as bad as in Europe. The realm was beyond capacity full even before paid character services, then came transfers from Faerlina, Skeram, and other realms, rendering Indencius beyond unplayable according to Redditors. Players reported 2-3 hour queue times on Incendius during raid time.
      Blizzard has so far not responded to any of the reports and we will keep you updated should they come up with any solutions in the near future.

      UPDATE: The issue has now been resolved.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The aforementioned fix was completed with restarts at 6:00 a.m. AEDT, and the Battleground Holiday has been operating as expected on Oceanic realms since then. The first Battleground Holiday has been delayed in Oceania due to a bug. Blizzard is currently working on a fix that may require Classic realm restarts.

      The first Battleground Holiday should have gotten underway on Oceanic realms at 12:01 a.m. AEDT (about 4.5 hours ago). That has not yet happened, due to a bug.
      We’re working on a fix, and the fix may require realm restarts of Oceanic Realms, which we would undertake very soon if necessary.
      We apologize for the delay.

      Blizzard today announced they suspended numerous WoW Classic players that were found to be using anti-AFK cheats or bots that automated movement, mainly in Alterac Valley.
      Anything that degrades the gaming experience for other players will result in harsh penalties, according to Blizzard, and they will continue to issue suspensions based on player reports, so if you see someone circumvent AFK rules, make sure to report them!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Yesterday, we issued numerous suspensions to WoW accounts that were found to be violating our Code of Conduct. Affected players were e-mailed with details about the violation and suspension – a great many of which were found to be using anti-AFK cheats or bots that automate movement, especially in Alterac Valley.
      This was the most-recent in a series of similar actions we’ve taken to address unfair gameplay in WoW Classic.
      Please be reminded that using third-party programs to automate any facet of the game, exploiting bugs, or engaging in any activity that grants an unfair advantage is considered cheating. Exploiting other players is an equally serious offense. Scamming, account sharing, win-trading, and anything else that may degrade the gaming experience for other players will receive harsh penalties.
      We’ll continue to monitor reports of and take actions against players who circumvent AFK rules. If you come across a player violating the Code of Conduct policies, please report them.
      Thank you.

      Blizzard has just posted patch notes for the latest WoW Classic update which includes Arathi Basin, two new factions, Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza, Battleground Holidays, and various bug fixes.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Features
      Arathi Basin
      Join the League of Arathor or the Forsaken Defilers as they battle for precious resources. Pitting 15 members of each faction against each other, the race is on to be the first to 2000 resources, capturing strategic landmarks around the Basin to increase your team’s gain and cripple the enemy. There’s never been a better time to join the war.
      Arathi Basin will unlock at 3:00 p.m. PDT (6:00 p.m. EDT) on Wednesday, March 11.
      Battleground Holidays
      Most weeks, Warsong Gulch, Alterac Valley, and Arathi Basin now enjoy holidays that begin on Thursday night at midnight and continue until Tuesday morning. During a holiday, emissaries from that Battleground will be found in the major cities, and honor/faction rewards for performing objectives in that Battleground are increased.
      Bug Fixes and Updates
      There is now a warning dialogue when players enter a raid that has an active raid lockout, giving players the chance to avoid accidental raid saves. Harvesting gathering nodes that are on zone boundaries should now be more reliable. Many particle effects and transparency effects now display more accurately. For example: Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker will appear brighter than before. Perdition’s Blade will appear brighter than before. Particle effects on the Warlock and Paladin class mounts will be less pronounced than before. Fixed an issue that could cause Nefarian to momentarily fly away after revealing his true from at the beginning of Phase 2 of his encounter. Players who are Honorless Targets are now immune to Mind Control. Hunter Player-controlled pets now move in a straight line to their target when commanded to attack, rather than defaulting to behind the target. Shaman Mana Tide Totem should now reliably deliver a fourth tick of Mana Tide. Warlock Blood Pact is no longer re-cast when Amplify Curse is used or Nightfall procs.
