Addon: Multishot (Screenshot)

No, this isn’t a hunter addon.. though I suppose hunters could use it :). Multishot is a tiny little addon that automatically takes screenshots for you when certain events happen. You can open the config by hitting ESC and choosing Interface, then the Addon tab. As you can see by my config** (which I’m pretty sure is the default out-of-the-box…

Addon: Recount

Recount is a DPS meter. I’m sure there are others around.. but Recount seems to be the #1 choice. When you install recount it will begin watching as you fight and record how much healing/damage/cleansing you/your party/your raid does. By default on my Warlock when I’m out of combat (I hide recount when I’m in combat) I normally display the…

Addon: CLSaver

CLSaver (short for Combat Log Saver) toggles your /combatlog on/off as you enter/leave raid instances. You could totally do it manually.. but if you’re like me.. you’d forget. CLSaver does it automatically. /combatlog save all of the entries in your Combat Log into a file in your WoW Logs directory. This file can be uploaded to online WoW parsers (WWS,…

Addon: LinkWrangler

Sometimes you just need to look at more tooltips than the default UI shows. LinkWrangler allows you to open multiple linked items all at the same time. When I’m cycling through my gear trying to figure out which two rings are best (out of the six I have) I’ll whisper the links to myself and then open them all up…

Addon: CloseUp

Ok.. I’ve been posting about too many totally useful addons lately. Here’s one that’s frivioulous. Closeup allows you to spin you character and zoom in/out in the changing room. It’s a vanity addon that lets you see what things look like close up. It also works in the character pane.. and on inspect. Really.. it’s a tiny little vanity thing.

Addon: TBag – Shefki

.photoImgDiv img { padding: 0px; } I think TBag is one of the very first addons I ever installed. It’s been part of my UI since March 2007 (about a month after I started playing WoW). TBags is an indispensable inventory addon. It works right out of the box with no additional fiddling. It shows your inventory all-at-once and then…

When your cache “sees” a rare mob, NPCScan notices and sounds the alarm. It plays a distinctive sound and show a clickable picture of the rare at the bottom…

Addon: FuBar_tcgTradeskills

Fubar_tcgTradeskills adds a tiny set of profession buttons to your Fubar. I position these in the upper-righthand corner of my screen. Mousing over the buttons will open a drop-down showing all of the tradeskill levels on all of your toons. Clicking the buttons will open the tradeskill window for this toon for that button. Additionally, it tracks cooldowns and displays…

Addon: ButtonTimers

A while back I switched from DotTimers to ButtonTimers. I think it was when 3.0 launched. Initially I had a lot of problems getting DotTimers setup and I decided that although DotTimer’s ability to track dots on multiple targets and pair that up by raid symbol was nice.. I wasn’t really using it so I went looking for other solutions.…
