WotLK Classic Guide to Priest's Best Addons
Priest Addons for Wrath of the Lich King Classic
Priest as a class has many abilities that can greatly benefit allies and themselves and addons are a way of simplifying how you get the necessary information for you to play your character optimally, both from a personal performance perspective, but also in helping people you play with get the most out of the game as well. Below is a list of addons that both increase the quality of your gameplay and the quality of life while playing the game.
WeakAuras is an addon that allows you to track almost anything in-game, from boss abilities to personal buffs and debuffs. As a Priest, there are many useful WeakAuras that can be found on Wago, which is a place where people publicly share their WeakAuras with a brief description and example of their purpose.
Details provides a much more detailed combat log that can track damage done, application of debuffs, healing done, deaths, and much more. It is an extremely powerful tool to maximize your understanding of what is happening in each combat encounter.
Included in Details is Tiny Threat, a plugin that gives you a window to view the amount of threat that you and members of your group are generating.
Deadly Boss Mods
Deadly Boss Mods is a great addon that has pre-made timers for boss abilities in nearly every PvE encounter in the game. Deadly Boss Mods comes with plenty of customization options, so you can configure it however it works best for you.
in addition to DBM's timers, the maker of the addon also has DBM Voicepack VEM that adds an audio cue to the notifications from Deadly Boss Mods.
Questie acts as a greatly improved quest log and quest helper, showing clear indicators on your in-game map of where to go for quests and what your objectives for each quest are.
Leatrix Plus allows you to automate many functions throughout the game like skipping NPC dialog, accepting a resurrection or summon, repairing your gear, selling vendor trash, and much more.
Item Rack provides a quick and easy way to switch between single pieces of gear or entire item sets. This addon has much more features than the in-game Equipment Manager.
AtlasLoot is a master database of item drops from raids, dungeons, reputation rewards, crafting professions, limited time events, and much more. It allows you to easily look up nearly every item in the game instead of having to tab out. This is especially useful to see what drops from a specific boss and plan out ahead of time what items you want.
ElvUI is a complete UI overhaul and is extremely customizable. If you are coming from the retail version of the game, this addon offers more modern cast bars, unit frames, and most common conveniences that are baked into later expansions.
TradeSkillMaster (TSM) is an addon designed to help you streamline your gold-making processes. The main feature of this addon is the complete overhaul and improvement of the Auction House, greatly improving your time spent buying and selling items.
Threat Plates is an addon for customizing your nameplates. It offers a high amount of customization and tweaks to how your nameplates react and look. With a very minimal amount of effort, you can get huge amounts of information about a target simply by what their nameplate is showing through this addon.
Macros simplify many things in The Wrath of the Lich King expansion allowing you to do more with fewer button presses.
For this reason, we recommend that you also read our Priest Macros page, in order to improve your gameplay experience!
