While WoW Classic addons may not be something you'd associate with the
original World of Warcraft, many authors of the currently popular WoW
Classic addons have been hard at work to make sure their creations are
compatible with WoW Classic.
We've listed a few of the best WoW Classic addons below, as well as what you need to do to install
them.Here's where you can download the Twitch app. Once installed,
you'll be prompted to log in using your normal Twitch login – visit the
Twitch signup page if you don't have one. On the main window, locate and
click on the 'Mods' tab which should give you a list of games. Select
'World of Warcraft' and make sure your Classic game installation path is
selected in the drop-down in the top right.
From here you can search for new addons to install or update your existing ones. If you're
logged into the game when you install or update an addon, you'll need
to shut it down completely in order for changes to take effect.
If you'd rather avoid the Twitch app and install your addons manually,
WoWHead has a handy guide that will walk you through each step. For the
'Installing the addon' step, you'll need to locate your addon folder
located in the '_classic_' folder, rather than '_retail_'.By default,
WoW Classic won't mark quest locations or objectives on your map and
instead relies on you actually reading the quest text – the horror!
Questie helps you out by adding the locations of quest-givers and quest
objectives to your map and mini-map, making it easier to spot quests
that you might have missed. It doesn't tell you which order you should
do the quests in or give any guidance other than simply highlighting
quests that are available to you at your current level.
This is an inventory manager that takes the default bag layout and makes it look
much neater by turning it into one container. It also tracks items on
alt accounts by displaying which of your characters has the same item,
how many, and whether they're stored in the bags or bank. Plus there's a
nifty coloured border around items so you can easily tell the quality
of the gear or items you have in your bags.
OmniCC adds a numeric cooldown overlay to spells and abilities, giving a more accurate
and easy-to-read alternative to the default 'sweep timer' that's
present in Classic. It also works with consumables and items that you
keep in your bags so you know exactly how long you'll need to wait until
the next use.
