Wow frame addons

Wow frame addons DEFAULT

The newest expansion is just around the corner – World of Warcraft: Shadowlands will release on October 27th, 2020. You can properly prepare for the new adventures in the vastness of Shadowlands, starting with your user interface. We will help you improve your game to get the most fun and maximum satisfaction out of the new expansion.

Almost every player in World of Warcraft uses different game modifications – addons. They have become an integral part of the game for casual players, as well as an indispensable tool for the best players in raids, dungeons, and PvP. The default interface, despite all its improvements over the years, does not provide enough information that is so necessary for many gaming activities and does not give players the space for personalization. 

Fortunately, these and other flaws of the default UI are easily corrected by the variety of addons. Some addons will help you customize the visual appearance of the interface to your liking, while others will simplify auction calculations and help you use your professions more efficiently. Addons can improve any aspect of the game.

Let’s take a look at the most useful and popular addons in different categories that will improve the quality of your game, make your life easier, and make the game much more pleasant for your perception. You will see – personalization makes a big difference!

Where to get 

First things first, let’s determine where exactly you can find the addons you need. There are multiple sites where you can safely download them:

CurseForge;

GitHub;

TradeSkillMaster;

Tukui;

However, to install and update the majority of the addons, we recommend using the Twitch App. You’ll be able to easily track and manage all your addons for both Shadowlands and Classic versions of WoW in one place.

ElvUI

replacement ELVUI

Elv User Interface, known as ElvUI, is a full UI replacement. It completely replaces all elements of the default interface – it is a complex structure with integrated addons and plugins. As such, many of the interface elements will never require you to install additional addons, but simply to configure particular functions using the ElvUI menu. The ElvUI menu can be accessed using the Game Menu, or with a special chat command: /ec

ElvUI combines many of the most popular interface improvements, such as raid frames, spell bar, bags configuration. 

Useful informative displays are also worth mentioning – you can easily track the amount of currency or resources you are interested in, the strength of the reservation, the number of available slots in the bag, etc.

We won’t go through all the ElvUI features here – it will require a separate guide for customizing that comprehensive UI. However, let us share a useful tip: you can find ready-to-go custom builds on a special forum page and the Wago portal. Many of these builds are perfectly optimized for certain classes and roles – check them out and you’ll probably find something to your liking!

Oh, and unline most of the Addons, you won’t be able to update ElvUI using the Twitch App or Curse. You will have to update it manually using the Tukui Client. A small price to pay for this wonderful addon.

Tukui Client

Z-Perl Unit Frames

You can assign mouse combos to use any healing spells on players with active or non-active bars. You can customize combos and add any usable items, Target, Focus, and Assist commands. Targets can be sorted and split into different groups, based on roles, raid groups, etc. Additionally, HealBot supports the synchronization of healing spells with other healers in your group/raid.

WoW Panels

Action bars presented in the default Blizzard interface are one of the most outdated parts of the interface – they lack much-needed information and customization options Let’s see what can be done about that.

Bartender 4

Download link

Gives you full control over all 10 action bars and related bars, such as stance, pet, bag, and XP bars. You can customize their position, size, transparency, and easily bind Hotkeys using the KeyBound.

You can open the configuration using command /bt or /bartender. To use the KeyBound and setup your keybindings, type /kb and hover your mouse over a button, press the keyboard, and it’s done!

MoveAnything

OmniCC

OmniCC

Download link

Size matters not. Look at this addon. Judge it by its size, do you? Like Master Yoda, the addon is small but extremely effective. The main function is adding text to the icons on your action bar, allowing you to see cooldowns on your abilities shown in numbers. Highly customizable, you can get very precise numbers, down to milliseconds. With the OmniCC you will always know for sure when your abilities will be ready to use!

WoW DPS meters

While addons in this category may seem quite similar at first glance, as they all perform the same function, there are some little details to each one of them, that separate them from each other. Addons use different algorithms to compute the DPS, and some may be more resource-intensive for your game.

Recount

Recount

Download link

The most famous DPS measurement addon, which name has become a household, but today it is not the most accurate one compared to the alternatives. However, this is compensated by the ease of setup and use, as well as by its lightweight. More useful as a quick in-game reference of your performance rather than a meaningful instrument for analysis during a complex raid fight.

Skada Damage Meter

Skada Damage Meter

Download link

Modular damage meter with various viewing modes, highly customizable, and highly efficient with your computer resources. You can setup multiple windows to track different info-meters, such as DPS, HPS, Aggro, etc. Skada is almost identical to the next addon in the category – Details! The main difference between Skada is when the DPS starts recording, and when it stops. Depending on what you want to reflect in your combat log, you will make your choice between these two. 

Details! Damage Meter

Details! Damage Meter

Download link

DDM is the most accurate and in-depth graphical meter for your party, using the same method as Warcraftlogs itself. Overall, Skada and Details are pretty much the same, the only difference is when the DPS starts recording – while Skada starts counting the DPS when you make your first hit, Details! Meter starts counting when anyone in the group lands the first hit. Another example is Details! continuing DPS tracking until the end of the fight, while Skada is stopping and remembering your DPS the moment you die during the fight. Remember, the best damage dealer is a living one. And Details! knows that too.

WoW Auras

WeakAuras 2

WeakAuras 2

WeakAuras 2 2

An indispensable tool for every player seeking to get the maximum out of the game. It’s easily the most complex addon, but the road to the stars lies through hardships.

As of right now, the addon is not up to date, and for a while, you may use it if you check the «Load out of date AddOns» setting in the addon list in the game.

Raid Addons

Deadly Boss Mods (DBM)

Deadly Boss Mods (DBM)

Download link

One of the most useful addons that you should not be playing without. DBM provides real-time alerts for all events during the boss fights, making them easier in a sense, by allowing you to plan your actions a few steps ahead. Addon will warn you about dangerous abilities or give you simple suggestions on what to.
warm you DBM2

The main features of the addon are the Raid Warnings and Timer Bars, each made specifically for different boss encounters to alert players about approaching mechanics and abilities. Warnings can appear as a popup text and sound effects, as well as making your character announce to the party if affected by some debuff. Timer Bars track scripted events that occur at specific times during the fight and knowing that makes a huge difference in raiding. Players will be able to prepare for the coming mechanics, efficiently utilize cooldowns and class resources.

Raid Leader can create custom timers to coordinate the group – such as pull timer before the boss fight, or a break. These timers can be created by typing /pull (duration) or /break (duration) in the chat.

pull timer DBM

And there is one more nice little feature build in this addon – an auto-reply message while you’re in a boss fight. So, whenever you get a whisper from another person, an automated message will be sent, telling that you are busy at the moment, and containing information about the fight you engaged in, boss name, and the remaining HP percent. And then it will send another message once the fight ends.

once the fight ends DBM

On the CurseForge page, you can download additional mods and packs, such as Event Sound Packs, Countdown Packs, Voice Packs, and the old content raid packages for previous expansions.

BigWigs Boss Mods

BigWigs Boss Mods

Download link

Similar in its functionality to DBM – provides warning messages during encounters, but with more in-depth customization options for the timer bars and warning effects. While DMB is a more of a «download and ready to go» type of addon, with BigWigs you can manually set up warnings to conform to your preferences, change the color of bars, and prioritize certain events or emphasize certain spells. In a sense, Big Wigs is less spamming when it comes to notifications and sound effects than DBM, but in the end, it’s all up to personal preference.

Exorsus Raid Tools

Exorsus Raid Tools

Download link

An indispensable instrument for a raid leader, which simplifies many aspects of the game and provides the necessary information to improve the experience in the role of RL. But it’s also a helpful addon for other raiders. Main features include Raid Check, to see buffs, elixirs, food of raid members, Combat Analysis, and Raid Inspect to see player roles, talents, gear, and other information. Among other notable modules, there is an auto-invite tool, Bossmods for certain encounters, and WeakAuras checker.

GTFO

GTFO

Download link

The name of the addon speaks for itself – it alerts players if they’re standing in avoidable enemy AoE attacks and suggests them, with an audio alert, to move out. Or die trying. These warnings can save many lives of those who simply did not notice certain mechanics during an encounter. Especially useful for players running the game on minimal settings with visual effects tuned down or turned off completely, for sake of performance.

Best WoW Classic unit frames and raid frame addons

If you need to clean up your WoW Classic unit frames for easier play, you should consider getting some addons. The default Blizzard frames can be troublesome, and they lack the ability to show stuff like debuff timers. There’s a few addons out there to make your life in Azeroth a lot more manageable.

One of the most popular unit frame addons for the live game is available for Classic too. ElvUI is the slick-looking unit frames that you probably see in most screenshots. It’s popular because it’s easy to set up and looks great from the start. If you’re someone who doesn’t want to spend ages trying to move your UI elements around to look just right, this is the addon for you. Of course if you want to spend a lot of time customizing, you can do that with ElvUI as well.

Any ElvUI user has also probably heard of TukUI. It’s similarly as useful but way more minimalist looking, and it too is available for the original game. This unit frame addon is for people who really want to immerse themselves in the world of the game and do away with intrusive UI. It might be a little too utilitarian for people who don’t mind the standard action bars and unit frames, but there are other options for that.

If you want a little more flavor in your game, you can pick up SpartanUI Classic. This addon transforms your unit frames and action bars to look thematically clean and fitting. It’s a different take on the fantasy look of the regular game, but it stands against other addons that turn everything into modern-looking control boards.

Anyone who played the game years ago will probably remember Xperl unit frames. That addon is technically back with Z-Perl UnitFrames. It has that same clean look that it did years ago but it works in the newer game. The addon supports stuff like Real Mob Health so you can know roughly how much health an enemy has, and it includes compact cast bars. Z-Perl can require a fair amount of customization for different classes, but if you have the time, it’s worth trying out.

Even if you’re a purist and enjoy the Blizzard UI, you should still consider dabbling in unit frame addons to see what’s out there. Even if you don’t want to change to look of your bars, they provide a lot of information that the game otherwise doesn’t. One of these could add just enough to the experience that could make playing the game more approachable, and with the very real struggles of the original game, any help is welcome.

Blizzard Watch is made possible by people like you.

Redde:

Yeah, I tried look for screenshot/video, dont see combo points here.


Made a fast one right now, in my own bar you see Green as my HP, Yellow as my energy and the boxes below are the combo points/chi

You can change height on those.

Remember even if you do, your bar’s total high remains the same. You just trade HP/Energy bar height for chi/combo point.

Redde:

Maybe they are old. You said WoD added combo points, right?

No sorry i ment im using it since WoD, not really sure when they added it.

Redde:

I can test Shadowed.

Its a very very annoying addon to set up but once you perfect your demands on it i seriously doubt there is an addon that can provide so much depth as SUF does.

Addon Spotlight Alternatives: Unit frames
Image
Each week, WoW Insider's Mathew McCurley brings you a fresh look at reader-submitted UIs as well as Addon Spotlight, which focuses on the backbone of the WoW gameplay experience: the user interface. Everything from bags to bars, buttons to DPS meters and beyond -- your addons folder will never be the same.

Unit frames have evolved significantly over the course of WoW's life, from static, portrait-driven frames to dynamic and animated hubs of information. I've always treated the unit frames as a centerpiece and counterweight, like a see-saw, using the unit frame's natural duality to its best effect. There are few addons or types of addon that can take on as many shapes and forms as the unit frames do. Not least, the unit frames provide some of the most vital information to the player possible -- your health.

For healers, from the very beginning, the group and raid interfaces were unable to cope with the sharp skill incline after reaching level 60 cap. There was nothing that I wanted more than a robust group layout of buffs, debuffs, and easy-to-read healths and percentages, with the ability to make it look the way I wanted to. The idea of something like Grid had not even come up yet. Original unit frame addons were blocky messes of textures and bright blue and green bars. Portraits were taken way, way too far. Kids in the candy store.

What are unit frames, anyway?

When I talk about unit frames, the first question many people have is what exactly they are. Combined, the unit frames include the player frame (your health, mana, energy, portrait, etc.), the target frame (your target's information), the group frames, the target of target (and its associated frames), and the focus target frame. Originally, the raid frames were included in this package.

Then, one day, a marked shift in the way healers interacted with raids dipped into group play. Grid-style group and raid frames and layouts split off from the unit frames and became the raid frames we know today. Blizzard eventually adopted its own version of the Grid-type raid frames which, we have noted multiple times, are better than they've ever been.

Further evolution

Unit frames evolved in three distinct directions: the streamlined and customizable set including Shadowed Unit Frames, Stuf, and Pitbull; a minimalist and occasionally obscure healer box-style including Grid, Vuhdo, and others; and a modern heads-up display interface that places unit frame information much closer to player's actual on-screen representation.

The HUD style of unit frames never clicked with any part of my brain that appreciated unit frames, mostly because I wanted to see my character in the midst of the action at the center rather than any health bars or whirligigs and crazy visuals. Little did I know that PowerAuras would come about one day and change my perception on crazy crap dangled in front of me. Bars next to my character, however, are still out of the question.

But that's not to disparage the HUD style. It works, and it works well in many cases and in many custom UIs. Beautiful heads-up UIs exist all over the community. It's an impressive style that has found a way into a world in which it feels utterly out of place and right at home in the same breath. That must be good, right?

The contenders

Fans of the regular, plain-Jane type of unit frames -- and there is nothing wrong with that -- are in luck. The feature sets of the modern unit frame replacements and addons are largely the same. These days, the decision comes down to a combination of personal preference and variety of customization.

For the simplest, easiest, out-of-the-box experience, I've always recommended Shadowed Unit Frames. It looks clean, the colors are solid and don't commandeer the screen, and the addon's footprint is small -- all good qualities that every unit frame addon should have. The biggest issue with Shadowed is that that people just like Pitbull more. Maybe it's just a name issue and people know one brand over the other. Suffice to say, it's a nice experience.

Pitbull and Stuf are awesome. If you have moderate to advanced UI skills, love tinkering with your UI, and want all of your information right there, ready to roll, exactly how you want it, Pitbull and Stuf are your babies. You can't go wrong with the options -- and frankly, everything these addons can build will look wonderful. Just choose your colors carefully.

Grid breaks the mold

For a Grid-type interface for your party and raid frames (and potentially your own player frame), the granddaddy Grid is still my favorite option. Blizzard's own raid frames are excellent as well and don't require any installation. That's awesome, too!

Honestly, I'm not going to talk too much about raid frames in this column because I will write a column soon on that very subject. For now, Grid, the default frames, Vuhdo, Healbot, and whatever else are all great and work wonders in various different ways. That's for another week.

HUD's up

IceHUD is still, I believe, the premiere HUD package in terms of robust and well-done HUD-style unit frames. You can do some pretty impressive configurations with IceHUD, so I implore you to download the addon and give it a go. At least see what it is capable of before dismissing the idea of a HUD, like I did. At least I gave it a shot, right?

Check out my Addon Spotlight on IceHUD.

The unit frames are a staple of the WoW UI and always will be. How else could you get incredibly detailed information about your health, mana, energy, and more without those handy bars? What about the boss's health and all that? Unit frames were one of the last pieces of the user interface that I finally found comfort in, in terms of the right addon and placement for me. They moved around a lot.

Unit frames also have the unique task of displaying a lot of information but also being wildly different in placement for people who choose to move them. Remember, the unit frames in the default interface only recently have been movable, and that's in beta. In fact, the best Reader UI of the Week submission I have ever received was -- well, how about I save that for next week?
