Hey there.

As some of you know I'm fairly new to WoW and therefore I only recently began experimenting with add-ons. I've looked through the forum archive for any threads about add-ons but unfortunately I've come up short. I seem to remember there being a thread about this, but if it exists I can't find it. :(

That's why I think it would be nice to have a thread where we can let other guildies know about add-ons that are helpful or downright essential for playing WoW.

So go right on and post to your hearts delight. :D

And I'll post the first one:

Ackis Recipe List

I find it really helpful when tracking down recipes for your trade skills. It lets you know where and how to obtain recipes. As a side bonus it also lets you access the data for the recipe so you can see which reagents you need.

Highly recommended.

For players who do Alchemist Finklestein's daily quest Troll Patrol: The Alchemist's Apprentice in Zul'Drak, I highly recommend EasySerum. As the author writes, "Simple and effective, no more alt-tabbing to wowhead for this quest."

DMB

Did you mean DBM (Deadly Boss Mods)? Also, I don't actually know any of the others except for Gatherer.

So, I'll list of few of my own favourites:

- AtlasLoot Enhanced: it's a gear database.
- Cartographer: for coordinates on maps, etc.
- Deadly Boss Mods: gives you useful information and warnings whenever you fight instance bosses.
- Omen Threat Meter: warns you when you overaggro - useful for DPS - and also if you're tanking, when you're losing aggro. Overaggroing warning is also useful for leveling warlocks and hunters, for example.
- Recount: Gives you live statistics about amount of DPS, damage, healing and other stats whenever you're in a group.
- Mage Nuggets: all kinds of useful little things for mages.
- Combustion Helper: useful for fire mages (not that useful for me anymore, since my mage is arcane/frost).
- MyRolePlay: You can open a window and type in all kinds of biographical information about your character. When other characters also have MRP installed you can see some basic info by just hovering your mouse pointer over them (eg. lvl 10 Evil Master Overlord of the Zerg Empire) and you can also click on the MRP sign next to their portrait when you want to read more.
- Altoholic: Very useful if you have a bunch of alts that you want to keep track of. Warns you if a character has some mail that is about to expire, keeps tracks of items that you have on all alts, the total amount of money, time played, how rested they are, etc. all without having to actually log to any of them (except for once, after installing it).
- Gatherer: database of mining nodes, herbs and such.

Hope it helps!

Lahu I downloaded Altoholic and also linked my two accounts so they can see each others stuff. Very important since one of my alts is a banking character with her own guild bank, however I send all my crap to her from 2 accounts to pool it all together.

I'm impressed also how it shows all the mounts and pets and which ones you have (colored) and the ones you don't have yet (darkened). How handy is that for keeping track of what you still need to get!!

This addon is one word:

I N C R E D I B L E

Thank you!!!

Glad you like it Brambline! I have to say it's my favourite one of the few I have at the moment.

altoholic also flashes up which profession cooldowns are due up, as well as raid/dungeon lock outs

I love the way you can mouse over an object and it tells you which chars have that item (including the guild bank)

One I recently discovered. It's a full UI replacement called ElvUI. It's a lightweight full ui replacement. I'm running with it for a few weeks and then build my own from scratch :D
