My Favorite World of Warcraft (WoW) Add-Ons
August 2, 2010
A year ago, I wrote an entry stating that I had cancelled my World of Warcraft (WoW) subscription. That was because I realized that it had become addicting & I had to stop myself from playing too much.
Well, just last week, when people were raving about Starcraft II, I decided to play WoW again. Just to get a feel of it, and to know if I am still a gamer. Do I still love PC games a lot? And the answer is yes! Hahaha! I’m actually thinking of creating a site dedicated to World of Warcraft LOLz!!
Anyway, in this post, I will share with you the add-ons I use in order to make my WoW gaming experience more enjoyable & less stressful:
this is indispensable for me. It helps me finish my quests faster. It provides for me the locations where I can find the monsters or things I need to finish the quest. It’s a huge database considering how big the game already is. Looking at the notes, seems like the creators won’t be updating this further, I hope someone picks it up & continues working on the add-on. It will be a waste if they stop developing QuestHelper. If that happens, I may need to find an alternative.
for WoW maps & minimaps. My main use of this add-on is for 2 things: coordinates a window that can let me see my character’s exact location & an arrow that points out where my character’s corpse is.
If you’re like me, someone who wants to complete all the achievements in WoW then this add-on is for you. It shows us our progress with our achievements. One thing that I love with this add-on is whenever we need the item or NPC for an achievement, it shows up when you hover your curser over it so you’d know what to do.
the name says it all. It helps us sort out all the junk in our bags and with just a click, we can automatically sell them all. No need to waste time in clicking the items that we need to sell one by one — wohoo!
I’m OC and I bet a lot of WoW players are too. We want to complete each & every quest available in a faction. EveryQuest can help us track that, plus it lists down all available quests in every area.
Very useful when you auction, it gives you complete listings, age of auction & a lot more. A must-have for every WoW player.
Once you play WoW, you really need to learn how to act fast, think fast & do a lot of things at the same time. In the game, we are given bag slots. It’s a pain whenever you need to find a certain item and you forget which bag you put it in. You have to open each bag to see where it’s at. With this add-on, it helps organize the items by category. When you click on one bag, you can see your items neatly organized in a single glance.
for some weird reason, WoW does not provide us maps of instances/dungeons. This add-on helps fill this gap. Unless you want to explore blindly, then I would suggest you to download this add-on.
