Do you find yourself struggling to track cooldowns or interrupts? Do the crowd control abilities you use not last as long as they should? Tracking such abilities and diminishing returns can be difficult to do without help. There are thousands of addons to choose from, but to make things easier we have picked 5 addons that every PvP player should be using.
GladiatorlosSA2 is the best addon for those just starting in PvP. The addon uses sound to tell you every important ability that is being used by the enemy team. This is best for those just learning about the basics of PvP and learning to track cooldowns. This addon can also help you avoid or interrupt incoming crowd control.
Aside from being able to track your cooldowns, OmniBar is crucial to being able to do the same for the enemy team's cooldowns. OmniBar allows you to do just that. You can simply go into the interface and decide which interrupts/cooldowns should be tracked for each class. This will help you decide if you should use a defensive if the enemy team uses offensive abilities, or if you can cast (if there are no interrupts available).
Paying attention to details is crucial to being successful in PvP. The first thing you need to pay attention to are your teammates. BigDebuffs increases the size of all crowd-control abilities on your raid frames. This is useful because, for example, you do not want to start using burst cooldowns if your teammate is stuck in crowd control. This is also especially useful for healers who want to get faster at dispelling debuffs.
5. sArena + Diminishing Returns / Gladius
No matter if you use sArena or Gladius, these are by far the most important addons to have in PvP. sArena in combination with Diminishing Returns does the exact same thing as Gladius itself. These addons are highly customizable and give you important information on the enemy team. Tracking diminishing returns, what honor talents they are using, and what spells they are casting are some examples of the information these addons give you.
An important part to maximizing your damage is being able to track specific procs and cooldowns, and WeakAuras 2 gives you that ability. Even if you are a beginner, you can import strings from other players and use them! Being able to track certain buffs drastically increases your healing/damage output. You can also track the remaining duration of a defensive buff that is active on you or a party member.
It does not matter if you are a beginner or a seasoned PvP player, these addons will help and improve your gameplay drastically. The addons mentioned give you the information you need to keep track of all the information you need. Let us know in the comments if there are any addons that you use that are not in this list!
