Its been a week now (?) and I'm loving WoW Classic.  I last played 10 years ago, and the nostalgia, oh, the nostalgia :)  So far the only addon I'm running is Questie (and checking daily for updates).  I'm not a pvp'er, raider nor min/maxer so I'm just looking for quality of life stuff.  An addon to help out my healers would be cool too.  Recommendations?

I use:

  • Bagnon for bag management
  • Immersion for UI change (I like this one because it changes how quest pop up)
  • Auto/Sell & Repair (because I'm lazy although the repair part hasn't been working right)
  • Auctioneer
  • SexMap (can customize how the mini map looks - mines a faded square I think) There are quite a few looks and some are annoying.
  •  

Will probably get DBM later on. Also use Questie but you already listed that. 

Please do not enable Pookha by giving him a Fiery Great Sword.

I found a GW2 UI mod thats pretty cool.  The menu part isn't working but the main UI is good.

For quality of life I do recommend Deadly Boss Mods for healers. warns you when bosses are doing their thing and can help you prepare for big burst of damage to heal. I also recommend "Healer Protection" if you do a lot of PUGS, it posts in chat when your mana is low, when your mana is out, or when you get aggro.

Several good addons mentioned above.   Below, I've listed a few others that you may find useful:

If you visit curseforge, sometimes the author will have 2 versions of the addon in the links above: one for retail, and one for classic.  Make sure to download the classic version.  

Many of these addons are a beneficial for group/dungeons.  The Atlas addons give you information about each dungeon, which bosses drop what loot, where the dungeons are located in the world, etc.  Details is a damage meter.  It tracks how much DPS each member is doing.  RealMobHealth will actually show you how much hitpoints the enemy has.  Deadly Boss Mobs was also mentioned by someone else above, and this addon is very useful for dungeons, especially level 60 dungeon/raids.

My new favorite addon I recently discovered is XToLevel, which keeps track of the rate of experience you are earning, and gives you an idea how long it will take to reach your next level.   I also like the addon Prat, mentioned by someone else above.  Prat adds so much functionality to your chat window.  One thing I appreciate is the option that lets you add timestamps to each chat message.

EDIT:
I added another useful addon, Weapon Swing Timer, see link above.  While melee find this addon useful (hunters, warriors, rogues), the casters that use wands also can benefit from this addon. 

 

Regards,

Garyc
