Useful World of Warcraft Add-ons

E-mail Print PDF

I have been playing World of Warcraft (WoW) since I recieved it as a gift for Christmas. It is definitely a well designed game with many intricacies.  However, as with any game there are things that could be improved.  This is where WoW Addons come into play.  Addons tweak or change the game's user interface (UI) to improve your gaming experience.  According to Blizzard's policy, UI addons are acceptable as long as they follow a few basic rules.  Below are a few of the addons I have found extremely useful and links to download them.  These addons are all available from the website.  Personally, I do not use the Curse client becuase I have read mixed reviews about it.  The Curse website also offers all the addons as a separate download  for manual install (you just unzip the folder and dump it in your AddOns directory (C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns if using Vista or Windows 7). 

World of Warcraft 300x250
  1. Quest Helper - This addon is useful for anyone, as it basically provides on-screen GPS directions to completing your quests.  Saves time looking at the map and can help you optimize your time. 
  2. Auctioneer - This addon is useful for anyone who posts items in the Auction House.  It helps you research selling prices and post items more efficiently.
  3. Postal - This addon is also useful for anyone.  It gives some nice address book like functionality to sending mail and also a helpful "open all items" button for taking all message attachments at once.
  4. Omen - This addon could be useful for many classes, but a mage especially.  It provides feedback on your threat level compared to other party members so you can avoid getting aggro from a big boss.
  5. Healbot - This addon is probably most useful to healers, but could assist other spellcasters as well.  It allows you to monitor and efficiently target your party or raid group for healing/buffs/curse removals.
