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?
- some debug addon (currently using my own)
- oChat (modified to my likings)
- oUF + layout (my own)
guess thats it that im depending alot on, the rest is just for eyecandy / easage
tho i write my own addons :)
a Unit Frames addon (I'm playing with oUF atm)
Bar mod (BT4 atm)
CarboniteQuest (When Leveling)
Wow that seems like a lot =/ I'm addicted to addons :p
I have to have
HealerButtons (Dont think I would want to heal without them)
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:
wow no QuestHelper lovers here? I'm hurt. That said my list of beloved addons is much smaller.
*Healbot Continued (if healing)
*SSPVP3 (if PVPing)
*Automatic Gnome Therapist (great for spammers!)
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.
I could do without Clique on non-healers, too.
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 (^^^)
Although i run around 200+ mods that i cant live with out the following are must have:
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)
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)
(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.)
Like most, have to have the main ones to change the UI.
Have to have:
An action bar mod
Tooltip (movement and extra info)
one bag mod for inventory
And to round out the list of 10:
Minimap and minimap button mod
Fubar with a few informational mods
Although, I'm glad they don't limit us, as I use a lot more than that :o
If I absolutely had to choose just one addon, it would be Carbonite.
Got to have:
1. ItemRack 1.99
ItemRack v.1.99 shouldn't even be working anymore...
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.
1. Macaroon (formerly TrinityButtons2)
4. FuBar (and some major ones like DurabilityFu, BagFu, MoneyFu, HonorFu, SkillsFu, FactionFu)
None, but I prefer to have the following on when I play:
