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?

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.

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

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

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.

  • Chatter
  • Quartz
  • pMinimap
  • Mapster
That's it.
