Here's a list of vanilla WoW addons that I like to use, I'll keep this list updated as I find new one, and obviously feel free to add some to the comments or message me to add them to this first post!
Atlas provides detailed maps missing from Vanilla World of Warcraft built based on data used by the minimap.
- Instance Maps
- Battleground Maps
- Flight Path Maps (Both Horde & Alliance)
- Dungeon Locations
- World Boss Locations
AtlasLoot works alone or extends the functionality of Atlas, for example making each boss name clickable to show the drops. Additionally you can view item sets such as tier 1, tier 2, etc.
Bagnon merges all of your bags into three windows: inventory, bank and guild bank.
Name: Bartender 2
Bartender is a full ActionBar replacement mod. It provides you with all the features needed to fully customization most aspects of your action and related bars. Type /bar for options.
Name: BigWigs Bossmods
Big Wigs is a boss encounter add-on. It consists of many individual encounter scripts, or boss modules; mini add-ons that are designed to trigger alert messages, timer bars, sounds, and so forth, for one specific raid encounter.
Cartographer is a modular, lightweight, and efficient framework for manipulation of the world map. Battlegrounds : allows viewing of battlegrounds outside of the zone.
Unit frame mod that allows you to further customize the look and feel of the Blizzard unit frames.
Name: Discord Pack
Includes the following along with libraries and options.
DoTimer is a comprehensive suite for managing various things that need timing.
- your DoTs / HoTs
- your Cooldowns
- buffs / debuffs on you
It accomplishes the task by breaking into sub-addons: DoTimer, Cooldowns, and PlayerAuras, respectively. A fourth sub-addon, Notifications, is also included. All four can be enabled/disabled and customized separately. The reason for including all of these together in one addon is for interoperability. You can customize the timers to an extreme extent.
A simple combat log that displays events similar to how SCT/D would in a log, using icons to display spells/skills. It separates incoming events (left side) from out going events (right side) from misc. events (middle).
EBB provides groups of statusbar style indicators to show (de)buffs currently affecting your char or some other units (currently focus, pet and target). For the player, it can also show indicators for temporary enchants place on it's weapons.
Name: Enhanced Tooltip
EnhTooltip is a tooltip library that supports both embedded (integrated into an existing tooltip object) and separate (its own tooltip attached to an existing tooltip) data to be printed to an on-screen tooltip.
When you shop for items at a vendor or the Auction House and you hover over an item, you get a comparison tooltip showing the "currently equipped" item too. This AddOn adds such a feature everywhere in the game where you can hover over items, such as in your bags, in the loot window or on the reward page of a quest. You also receive comparison tooltips when clicking an item link in the chat box.
Name: Extended Quest Log
What this mod does is increases the amount of quests you can see in your log without scrolling to a maximum of 20 items. Its more than three times the normal amount of quests you can see at once!
Also as an added feature it now enables the quest log and quest tracker to be movable and locked in place to prevent accidental movement. There is now a "lock box" in the titlebar next to the red x to lock and unlock movement. Credit for that goes to Razark.
It also can also colorize the quest tracker through the slash commands. Type /enhanced help or /eql help for more information.
Provides top/bottom bars with quick access to information and menus, this pack contains a lot of the modules such as GuildFu, BagFu, HonorFu, QuestsFu, and many more.
Name: Perl Classic UI Frames
Perl Classic Unit Frames are a complete rewrite of the original mods by Perl. They replace the default Player, Pet, Target, Target of Target, Party, and Party Pet frames and add dedicated frames for many other units (Focus, Focus Target, Party Target, Target of Target of Target). It has been a high priority to maintain the look and feel or the original Perl mods while expanding functionality. The mod has been recoded for performance and is built around the Blizzard UI usage of events.
Prat is a chat addon framework, and collection. It consists of 30+ modules which each add some functionality to the WoW chat interface. There is literally a module for just about everything chat related.
Name: Scrolling Combar Text
A fairly simple but very configurable mod that adds damage, heals, and events (dodge, parry, windfury, etc...) as scrolling text above you character model, much like what already happens above your target. This makes it so you do not have to watch (or use) your regular combat chat window.
simpleMinimap is a module-centric addon for modifying and personalizing one of the center-pieces of any UI - the minimap. the core simpleMinimap mod has these features:
left-click and drag the minimap anywhere
hide and move the default minimap buttons
zoom in and out with the mousewheel
adjust the minimap's scale, outdoor alpha and strata
bind a key to toggle the minimap and/or zoom it full-screen
type '/smm' for a list of commands
TinyTip provides enhanced functionality to the tooltip.
Name: X-Perl UnitFrames
Perl, with Extra stuff. Much enchanced from Nymbia's Perl UnitFrames, and a complete replacement for Blizzard's default unit frames, including raid frames and raid tools, with little remaining of the original Nymbia code.
