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…

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.…

Woot! So it turns out I can add life tap to my pet attack macro.
