DUNGEON AND RAIDS
Weakauras is kinda like, sticking ur dick into a snatch, if you were the dick and the snatch was wow. It just gives so many pretty warm feels when uve got it all perfect and shiney and pretties :). I heart it massively :3. So many fucking details, so much fine tuning… *daydreams*.
Grid is used in raids to adjust the layout of your party/raid. It allows you to add specific icons that you need on the health bar of players. Things such as dispels, what “healing boosts” you have on some characters, who has aggro, showing in big text on the bar if a tank has died and needs a b/rez. Stuff like that. Grid is very interchangeable. Grid2 is different to Grid :D. I have tried both, and prefer the newer due to all in its core rather than multiple addon attachments :). Grid allows you to set a different type of frame for each type of environment, like a “world boss raid” or a “dungeon” or “solo” can all have different types of frames :).
This addon… gets me wet :grin:. I’ve been waiting for it for ages. There are a few like it… but this one, allows icons to form as well. Another similar one I tried doesn’t. So this addon, instead of the normal macro being 255 characters, this gives you 1000+ characters :).
For Healing, this allows you to press a key = heal, rather than click then key = heal. This means healing = shorter time and quicker :). So like I press 1 on a target’s picture and it instant heals. Rather than clicking on them then pressing 1 then it heals ;). Clique (I use alongside Grid), Vuhdo or Healbot Continued is the alternative :). I use Clique because its much less CPU :).
For example, for my warlock, I have Soulstone keybound to just mouseover use on a player frame rather than finding the dead person’s corpse LUL :). Or any tank or dps with a friendly heal to be bound to quickly be able to use on an ally if needed, etc.
Shows your dps, heals, damage taken, etc. To be a good dps for raiding; you want to have ^ dps and v damage taken. Lower damage taken = less stress for raid. Higher damage dealt = makes raid quicker :). Recount/Skada/Details are the same, with Recount using the most CPU, Skada being in the middle in FPS use, and Details is the newest one which uses the least CPU.
Macro to place on bars to open and close the window, /run if GetMouseButtonClicked()==”LeftButton” then _detalhes:ToggleWindows() else _detalhes.tabela_historico:resetar() end
I had bigwigs originally when I started. Then switched to DBM for about a year, back to Big Wigs again. Big Wigs = Raids. Little Wigs = Dungeons.
I also have Big Wigs Cataclysm downloaded for farming Spine of Deathwing LUL.
Deadly Boss Mobs or Big Wigs :). Necessary for raiding or LFR or whatever. It tells you what is going on, puts up bars, tells you to get out of the way in big letters when shit is happening. Very very useful. Its a boss fight addon :).
Party-* ones are the ones for leveling through old Dungeons. Each raid is given its own line. I turn on only the ones that I need for the specific raid I am entering into. Like, when I run Dragon Soul, I turn on Dragon Soul, for Spine.
I don’t use Elvui’s nameplates or the default ones because here.
Specifically, it is absolutely needed for tanking. It relaxes you because your not running around chasing ads because it shows you vividly whether you have aggro on them already or not. It changes the nameplates of enemies, so that you can tell whether you have ‘aggro’ on them. If you dont have threat on something, its name bar changes colour. So when a dps is getting higher damage on an ad and you’re about to lose aggro, it shows you on the nameplate by changing its colour and you can focus on it. You can do things like make friends nameplates have a lower opacity during fights so you can more readily see what is an enemy. It auto-changes so that when you go into tank spec, it auto-edits the “threat” colours of the plates. Useful as fuck. Has profiles for all your specs, so if you jump to healer, it activates your healer settings. Puts little icons on the enemy nameplate for your dots.
When I was first downloading them, a new patch had just dropped, so Tidy wasn’t updated yet. So I used Kui for a few months originally then later switched to Tidy. Both are great. Tidy has more details, Kui is more basic; both being good. When using Tidy Plates, theme I use is Neon. Overall I just prefer KuiNameplates, its neater and does what I want.
So I use this, for saving different Talent sets for different areas. Such as for solo or group. Such as, taking a single person speed boost verses an aoe speed boost, or a single target heal rather than a group heal. When you join a dungeon or raid, you have a free 30 seconds or something to change your spells. Talent Set also allows you to just click a keybind to change over to saved sets :).
Shows how far away a target is from you. Great for healers who need to be in range of people to heal. Ie, to see how far that tank has “run ahead” of you. so you can get into range without stressing as much. I currently use range display because its neater. I prior used hard yards and both work well :).
With hardyards: Use Ctrl + drag to move it. My settings:
/hardyards arr [red]
/hardyards lab [red]
/hardyards num [yellow]
/hy bor 7
/hy siz 16
/hy tip on
Addon to help you judge whether gear is right for your class. Ie, whether the stats are good for you :). Video on how to use, here.
Stops the popup for “_ has joined _ queue” or whatever the popup is.
Automates leveling in Legion. Does a lot of what Leatrix does, except streamlines quests as well.
Puts in your chat who has pulled each mob, and allows you to broadcast the message.
If a hunter’s pet is on haunt, the addon tells that player to turn it off :3.

Article here describes them well. So Elvui is something that I used for a long time, went to a more basic setup. But, the difficulties with moveanything glitching sometimes and etc, I have just realised that I need Elvui.
Preach’s UI download also made me miss it :(, though not at first but the idea grew on me. So Elvui is a UI changer which has about 100 other addons built in, with other addon parts also able to be downloaded optionally.
Such as I have ElvUI ExtraActionBars downloaded so I can turn on and see my other druid or stealth bars if I need to when not in those forms.
Elvui does what other addons do such as selling junk like Scrap or Leatrix Plus, puts up an alignment grid like eAlignUpdated, shows coordinates like TomTom, and allows for the basic MoveAnything frame movement, etc, etc.
It is a UI “remodeling” so, it has everything you want, and isn’t hard on the CPU, so it is very popular.
Spy tells you whether there is anyone around you that is flagged for pvp. Ie, if your on a pvp server, it will pop up and tell you when the opposite faction are nearby, what level and class they are, etc. It also tells you when characters are in stealth somewhere near you.
Allows you to move around everything on your screen and hide shit. Such as the popups when people come online can be hidden, or the griffins on the bottom toolbar. Elvui does 100% of things, but I keep it incase there is some rare occurrence.
Uses /way coordinates to get places in the game.
Say you go to wowhead, and for an NPC it shows you a map and if you hover over the little circle on the map, it gives you coordinates.
You fly to the map part where the NPC is, say desolace. Then you type in /way 60.1, 20.2 < as an example, and press enter, you will get a little directional arrow which sends you to those coordinates. Also automatically helps you find your corpse.
These four are useful for rare farming, and treasure farming.
NPCScan > tells you things on the map, like if it spots a rare.
_NPCScan.Overlay = overlays the rare positions on the map.
HandyNotes = the core for all Handy Notes, there are different adds for each expansion;
HandyNotes_Draenor Treasures = the one for WoD treasures. So Draenor Treasures are all over the map in draenor, are an excellent way to get experience from 90-100 by picking them up.
HandyNotes: Ever-Shifting Mirror = WoD to Outland ports.
HandyNotes_Field Photographer = Cause I still only have half the way to the Title.
HandyNotes_Legion Rares and Treasures = Legion treasures.
HandyNotes_Vendors = For flipping items from Vendors on the AH.
HandyNotes_LongForgottenHippogryph = Locations of the crystals to spawn the mount.
Auto-puts in peoples for Garrison/ Order Hall missions :).
Puts Suramar portals on your map.
Hides the order hall bar, lol.
Puts what has dropped from mobs prior in a tooltip when you mouseover them.
What this does is if an item drops that is BoE, you can hover over it in your bag and your tooltip will tell you if its on the Transmog List and how much its approximately worth due to the group. This is also great for searching your Auction House and finding items that people have put up for a few gold or silver, but are worth like 2500g due to being a part of a rare transmog outfit or etc.
Download addon, then go to TSM’s website to download the desktop application free. This will automatically update your realm’s AH prices, on your tooltips when you hover over items, and make it much faster to place items on the AH.
For guides on how to use the addon; On TSM’s website, up the top, click on addon > guides.
What is good to sell for transmog; Phatlewts is a useful resource to add a new group for selling transmog items.
Copy and paste this list into a notepad or word document.
Say ‘group:Crafted0500-1000’ = crafted items that sell for between 500-1000 gold: then he lists the ‘i:’ items code to add in this list. Go through and put a few enters between all the groups so you can see the titles clearly and their items. All the groups; ‘group:Not Crafted 0250-0500’, ‘group:Not Crafted 5k+’, etc, etc; should be added as individual groups.
I also, find/replace the ‘i:’ with a spacebar/nothing; just to see clearer. This isn’t neccessary, the i: can be still used in the adding process. Just make sure there is not a , at the end.
TradeSkillMaster_AppHelper: Tells the addon to talk to the app on your desktop. “This modules provides a place for the TSM Desktop Application to dump data to be accessed by various other TSM modules such as TSM_AuctionDB…”
TradeSkillMaster_AuctionDB: Auction House price storage, like The Undermine Journal, I am pretty sure this is done through datamining Blizzard’s Auction House data which is posted every minute or second or something. In the same way as the Remote AH is used on the blizzard armory.
TradeSkillMaster_Auctioning: [Selling Items] “Auctioning is a module that allows the user to create pricing groups of items. Once the groups are created and tweaked to the user’s preference, the items can be very quickly posted on the Auction House at good prices…”
TradeSkillMaster_Shopping: [Buying Items] “Shopping allows users to semi-automatically buy materials for their crafting queue, as well as search for and buy other items that are currently on the auction house… [also see, Macros]…”
TradeSkillMaster_Accounting: “This module keeps track of your auction sales and purchases… also provides you summaries… gold earned / used total, gold earned / used during last 30 days, gold earned / used during last 7 days, top item by quantity…”
TradeSkillMaster_Mailing: “Mailing autosends items based on rules you create to any character you want… add mail targets (to whom to send items to)… add items [and groups] to mail targets… auto [open all] mail…”
TradeSkillMaster_Destroying: “This module handles milling and prospecting…”
TradeSkillMaster_Warehousing: “… to quickly move items between the players’s bags, bank, and guild bank.”
TradeSkillMaster_Vendoring: “This module provides advanced features at the vendor according to user-specified rules.”
TradeSkillMaster_Crafting: “Crafting automates the process of item creation by identifying potential profit in a user’s recipe book, queuing up all high-profit items, and allowing the user to quickly craft the items once adequate materials are collected.”
GatherMate2 is a farming addon for Herbalism, Mining and Skinning. If you have a gathering profession, and you gather something, it saves the data on the map. So say your flying around Frostfire Ridge and you collect a few Mining nodes. When you open your map, the mining nodes will now be saved on there, and you can see where every node you ever collected was.
Routes uses GatherMate2 to put a farming route on your map. Guide on how to set it up with Gathermate2 > here.
Extras needed; GatherMate2_Data.
Extras optional; GatherMate_Sharing.
“Postal offers enhanced mailbox support… Adds a contact list next to the To: field… Allows you to open all mails of selected types at one go…” TSM also has this built in, so I turn Postal off when I am on my AH sellers.
Gives a list of what you have in your bags from the farm. Can turn on and off specific things.
Allows you to put extra icons on your UI to track how much of something you have gotten. Easy because you can just drag things into the box from your bag. Useful for farming stuff like furs and keep track of how many hundreds you have and etc :).
Shows you the amount of time you have been farming for an item. Ie, 5,000 out of 10,000 tries for Azure Whelpling, etc /cry. Helps you keep track of how long you might still have to go ;).
Puts a little, tick, cross or star over all the items that drop/you have and within their tooltip, to tell you whether they have been learned account-wide or not :).
Transmog. What it does, is show you all the clothing in the game, categorised by leather/cloth/mail/plate/ranged/one-handed etc etc. Allows you to see it on your character, or a prebuilt saved transmog you are working on :). The frame is able to me made as big as you like it, so extremely useful if you want to have a bigger look at your character.
Shows transmog via instance.
Allows you to upload data to wowhead so they have clear % drop guides. I regularly use Wowhead, so I upload my data often to them.
Put discord emotes into chat :).
Allows you to open links in chat.
Puts Twitch emotes into chat :).
Allows you to make a dropdown list of things you need to do within the game. Has like calendar timers for each day of the week. So you can set a to-do list for reset time and etc. Looks like the objectives frame but its your own.
Friendshare automates the blocking of people across servers. Like if you add someone to ignore on 1 toon, it will add those toons to all your other characters when you log into them.
Global, allows you to ignore more than the 50 people limit. Also ban spam from trade using keywords. I love Global Ignore List, because it allows you to write notes so you remember why you blocked them. But, unfortunately, it has annoying popups in the chat box, and glitches sometimes. By glitch i mean, tries to re-ignore the same person everytime you log on. Which is fine if you can ignore chat. But is extremely annoying :_(.
If your interested in pet battles. It saves a “group” of your pets for each group you verse. So you can quick click to battle for the quick exp or quick levelling up the pet drops to sell. Pets are a great way to make gold in WoW.
“This addon uses the letter system by default (B/B for breed ID 3, etc), [ie, shows how good it is]… you can change the format type… will display the Breed of any pet… In Battle… In your Pet Journal… In Item tooltips… In Chat Link tooltips…”
Shows the cooldowns on enemies spells so you can plan whether to defend or attack. If you use Elvui > Skins, then untick Pet Battle.
World Quest pet battles have achievements, just shows whether the trainer up is linked to the achievements or not.
Shows you the pet battle achievements in Legion with the mouseover on the mobs that work towards them :). Useful af.
If your going to RP, this is what you use to write your backstory, so people can click on your name.
Allows you to type more than the 255 character limit. Just “splits” what you write into multiple posts but allows you to type as much as you want in one go :).
As a Hunter, Warlock or Mage, allows you to emote for your pet.
Allows you to macro emotes.
My emote macros;
/cleartarget /tar mouseover /tar focus /stopmacro [noexists] [dead] /opt [nomod] /ready /opt [mod:lalt] /oom /opt [mod:rctrl] /commend /opt [mod:rshift] /sleep
/cleartarget /tar mouseover /tar focus /stopmacro [noexists] [dead] /opt [mod:ralt] /taunt /opt [mod:rctrl] /wrath /opt [mod:rshift] /rasp /opt [mod:lalt] /ponder /opt [mod:lctrl] /cry
/cleartarget /tar mouseover /tar focus /stopmacro [noexists] [dead] /opt [nomod] /nod /opt [mod:lshift] /bow /opt [mod:lctrl] /chuckle /opt [mod:lalt] /ty /opt [mod:ralt] /wave
/tar mouseover /tar focus /stopmacro [noexists] [dead] /opt [nomod] /dance /opt [mod:lshift] /whistle /opt [mod:lctrl] /smirk /opt [mod:lalt] /bounce /opt [mod:ralt] /kiss /opt [mod:rctrl] /no /opt [mod:rshift] /grovel
Other Addons I have in a [More] Folder but don’t have them updated unless specifically needed:
Currently not working yet in Legion. Used it in WoD, its just, you list a group, and if people leave and the group cancels, it just automatically relists it for you… useful as fuck. I miss it sometimes…
Allow you to jump realms for farming. Allowing you to either choose the specific groups you want to join, such as only auto-invite groups, or groups that are in custom and not raiding groups, etc. These two addons have the same function and are similar in action, personal preference dictates your choice in terms of their GUI or specific preference.
Optional, i use for writing stuff in game. Its like notepad in WoW.
“What it does… Reports in chat (or with sound) when… achievement… is failed or when all criteria of the achievement are fulfilled and you need to kill boss… Informs about achievements when you enter the instance or target the boss… Shows tactics.”
Records your combat logs automatically.
Sets off a sound whenever your standing in the ‘fire’.
If you are a tank or healer (occasionally dps can use it too, but rarer), it tells you if your “needed” for dungeons with the extra loot incentive. You can make it send off a noise or raid warning across the screen to tell you to join a dungeon. If you join the dungeon you get about 500 gold and a bunch of WoD goodies for joining. Great way to make gold.
Sorts all your factions by exalted, to hated in order of %. Shows you in your chat box, how much you have remaining on each, like 1500 left till revered, etc.
“The main feature of the addon is the search functionality which allows users to search their alts’ bags or loot tables in an Auction-House-like frame… with multiple-realms/accounts support… Characters’ talents… Money… subtotals by realm, and grandtotals for the account… Bag usage… professions… Reputations… View containers (bags, bank… Guild banks… which alts have mail… the addon will tell you when mail is about to expire on a character… Equipment… Search… uses an AH-like frame to display search results… Quest Log… Auction house: You can see which auctions/bids you’ve placed… Achievements… Guild Members: a list of your connected guildmates, along with their alts (if they’re using Altoholic too)…”
Allows searching and other features to the achievement tab.
“Search tab added to the UI to search for achievements by name, description, reward, and more…Tooltip Reminders: Add information to units’, items’, and/or world objects’ tooltips to help you complete… Add information from progress bars and normally-hidden progress information. (For example, “Progress: 5/10” or “Assault 2 bases (0/2).”)…”
Just puts a grid over your screen so you can line stuff up :).
Shows raid-wide cooldowns, like battle rezs.
Combo point addon. I use for Death Knight, Warlock, Feral Druid, etc.
Its an allround addon that lowers your latency and improves ping by turning stuff on and off. Ie, like selling junk/repairing automatically, accepting summons/rez/release in pvp automatically. Hiding thing. Accepting group invites from people already on your friends list if they send one to you. Silencing emotes, disabling glow, skipping cinematics, etc.
Like Farmed/Rematch but for fishing.
I only have the parts Atlas and Atlas [Dungeon Locs] in the addon folder. Turning them on just gives you an addon frame that shows u where all the dungeons and raids are on a map for each zone :). Good for farming transmog and gold.
Atlasloot shows you all the loot from each Dungeon and Raid in the game :).
“Battle Pet Daily Tamer puts a familiar paw on the world map to mark where daily pet tamers are that you have not completed for the day… Pet Reward Dailies (green paw)… Normal Dailies (blue paw)… Legendary (orange paw)… Completed Dailies (grey paw): These are the above dailies after they’ve been completed. It is off by default… If you use the addon TomTom, ctrl+right click of a paw will set a waypoint to that paw… Mousing over a paw on the map will show the level of the tamer’s pets and their types…”
Shows pet locations on map, as to where they spawn.
Shows the uptime of the world bosses :).
Unit frame for battlegrounds. Honestly never used it, but i’ve seen other people use it in videos. So when I do bg, its there when ready :).
Unit frames for arena.
