Addons for raiding

Post  Scythe on Sat Oct 30, 2010 10:02 pm

Please note that this is a WIP and I'll be adding more addons. Trolling in this thread will not be tolerated. This thread is specifically for discussing addons, linking working versions, and talking about how much you wish your favorite addon could cook.

Threat Meters

This one goes on top because TMs are easily the most important addon you can have.

Diamond Threat Meter
This meter is my personal favorite. It was the first addon I downloaded upon reaching 70 and hasn't failed me yet. Features the ability to differentiate between mobs of the same name, a audio-visual warning for when you are close to overaggroing, and a customizable UI.

Download link for 2.4.3: Download

Omen
Omen is another option for a threat meter. Many players swear that Omen is more accurate/better than DTM, however that comes at a cost: Omen only shows the threat of those who have Omen or DTM installed and configured correctly.

Unit Frames

Good unitframes can make a world of difference in your play experience. I got hooked on XPerl during my time on retail and only recently switched to ag_unitframes after a brief stint on another server.

XPerl
XPerl (or, eXtended Perl) is the go-to for anyone just getting started into addons. They have more features than any of us will ever use (or at least, more than any of us will ever use at once) and the ability to be configured exactly how you like them. Don't want portraits? Fine. Show Health Bars in reverse? Works for me. XPerl can do just about anything you'd want a UF addon to do and then some.

ag_UnitFrames
ag_UF is another addon that has been around since before time began (aka Vanilla pre-TBC). It is my personal favorite by far. Sporting almost as many features as XPerl (it lacks portraits, for one thing) it is quite powerful and has very few bugs. It's also prettier, if you're into that sort of thing. Be warned: the 'Filter Auras' setting doesn't work properly for druids. It doesn't always show Moonfire/Insect Swarm and never shows Mangle, even if you have it.

Dungeon & Raid Helpers

Because we need all the help we can get.

SmartBuff
SmartBuff is a buff addon, to cast buffs ease and quickly. All classes are supported. Bind a key, scrollwheel or use the action button and it checks if you, a party/raid member, also hunter and warlock pets, needs your buff and cast it. Use the options menu to configure it you like, as example: buffs, raid subgroups, pets, etc.
Run the mod when ever you wish, if nothing is buffed, there is no penalty or cool down.

RaidBuffStatus
From the official page: "RaidBuffStatus is an addon to check, show and report on the complete buff status (including flasks etc) of a party or raid." Useful, no?

Download Link for 2.4.3: http://www.wowace.co...es/114-release/

BigWigs
From the official page: "BigWigs is a boss alert mod. It consists of many individual "boss modules", mini addons that are designed to trigger alert messages and timer bars for one specific raid boss each. Modules are activated when you target or mouseover a Boss, or if any other BigWigs use in your raid does. In most cases only one module will be running at any given time."

Gear Management

Because manually equipping takes too long

ItemRack
ItemRack allows you to create sets of gear that you can equip with the click of a button.
