Addons you HAVE to have
 
I was talking about addons/mods with my brother and while I am a addon junkie, he uses very few of them. So the question came up. What addons would you absolutely have to have if you were limited to only being able to have 5-10 of them?

Cralor 10-19-08 02:50 PM

  • BigWigs or Deadly Boss Mods (Raider)
  • LightHeaded (Leveling)
  • Clique (Healer)
  • CooldownCount or OmniCC
  • DoubleWide
  • Cartographer
  • Examiner
  • tekKompare
  • tekJunkSeller
  • TourGuide (Leveling)

Sigh
 
I have to have
Lightheaded
Doublewide
Tomtom
Alphamap
auctioneer
HealerButtons (Dont think I would want to heal without them)
OmniCC

I think if I was limited to 10 I would cry but I might be able to make it with just those. Might.

Addons that I couldn't play without:

Auctioneer
Bartender4

wow no QuestHelper lovers here? I'm hurt. That said my list of beloved addons is much smaller.
*QuestHelper
*Auctioneer
*Healbot Continued (if healing)
*SSPVP3 (if PVPing)
*Automatic Gnome Therapist (great for spammers!)
GL!

-AutoProfitX
-BadApples
-ChatSounds
-EastWestPlus
-EasyCopy
-FluidFrames
-ItemRack
-MapNotes
-OmniCC
-Possessions
-RatingBuster
-RedRange
-sRaidFrames
-WIM
-XLoot*

15 and I was cringing every time I had to "cut" one :P
There's at least 20 more that are fighting to get on that list.

Note that my addon folder has some 200 addons or so
(not all active on the same character)
but the above are the ones that would seriously diminish the game if I didn't have on all.

Ops! I just re-read the OP.. you said 5-10 not 15, ouch.

Psychophan7 10-20-08 09:44 AM

Dominos
Cartographer
Clique
PitBull
ArkInventory

I could do without Clique on non-healers, too.

Seerah 10-20-08 10:06 AM

I must be one of the crazy people that does fine with the default UI when on PTRs or something. ;) While I *want* to use addons, I don't *need* them. I'm sure that there are a lot of things people listed above that they just "want" and don't really "need". :) But here are the things that I always get first for my addons folder:

some bar mod (I have preferences, but as long as I have something)
some UF mod (^^^)
Clique
BugGrabber/BugSack
RatingBuster
TomTom
OmniCC

gothicknight 10-20-08 10:20 AM

Although i run around 200+ mods that i cant live with out the following are must have:

Omen
Recount (or other Damage Meter)
Bigwigs/Littlewigs (or DBM if u prefer)
CCbreaker (tells group/raid who broke your sheep or other CC)
Clique (group/raid healing)
Tourguide+Lightheaded+Tomtom (Questing/leveling)
Carbonite (i use paid version, but i am sure the CarboniteQuest is just as good).
Grid (used with clique, perfect raid frames for a healer)
Capping (PVP)

erica647 10-20-08 11:32 AM

Bagnon
Mapster
Itemrack
TomTom
Dominos
Sellfish
Omnicc
Bugsack
Auctionator
Gathermate
Bindpad
(I actually like the default ui frames now but still thinking about adding raid frames. I really want something minimal with basic info for a dps class.)

Fashionabull 10-20-08 12:04 PM

Like most, have to have the main ones to change the UI.

Have to have:

An action bar mod
UnitFrames
Tooltip (movement and extra info)
one bag mod for inventory
Gathermate

And to round out the list of 10:
Prat
Minimap and minimap button mod
Fubar with a few informational mods
Lightheaded

Although, I'm glad they don't limit us, as I use a lot more than that :o

Petrah 10-20-08 12:12 PM

  1. Carbonite (paid version)
  2. MetaHud
  3. Pitbull
  4. Bartender
  5. HitsMode
  6. PhanxChat (was Prat)
  7. SimpleMiniMap
  8. Simple Buff Bars (was Satrina's)
  9. Skinner
  10. eePanels

If I absolutely had to choose just one addon, it would be Carbonite.

Seerah 10-20-08 04:04 PM

ItemRack v.1.99 shouldn't even be working anymore...

saanlem 10-20-08 04:20 PM

ItemRack v 1.99 works fine.
I use this mod to make a bar of MainHand - OffHand - Ranged - Ammo- Trinket - Trinket which I put neatly to the side. A mouseover, and a click, and any of those slots changes weapon, whatever.
Later versions lost the ease of making these buttons.
