WoW Classic Best Addons List

This list is no particular order, but most addons are useful regardless of what type of play you will be focusing on. Some are obviously not that helpful if you are only going to be PvPing. If you want to know how-to install your addons, check out our post here.

IceHUD

If you have trouble keeping track of enemy health bars and your own health, then IceHUD is a great addition to your UI. It puts your health and your targeted enemy's health right next to your character. You can customize the theme and all of what shows up on your screen. It's a pretty valuable addon for people who want a lot of information smack dab in the center of their screen.

Questie

Trying to find all the quests in a zone or making sure you've completed all the stuff you should in a particular area is a lot more difficult in Classic WoW. There are quest gives in random areas, and sometimes you'll need to complete certain other quests to open things up. Questie helps make sense of that all, and will help you make sure you don't miss anything on your leveling adventures. The addon adds quest icons for quests you haven't grabbed yet, and also displays where a quest can be completed.

Recount

If you plan on doing anything in Raids or Dungeons in the endgame then you are going to want to have Recount. It displays the amount of damage players are doing, so you know where you stand as a DPS player. You can set it to auto-reset after a fight, and you can even go back to view how you did in previous fights. It can be customized and placed wherever you want it on your screen. It even has graphs and charts for you to look at and see how your damage is stacking up. Even if you aren't a DPS this addon is still useful, because it can display healing stats for healers and threat stats for tanks.

Weak Auras

This is a must for anyone who plans on doing raiding. It tracks auras, health, power (mana, rage, soul shards, holy power, etc.), cooldowns, combat events, runes, totems, items, and more. You can customize how each one of these displays on your character for easier knowledge on when it is about to run out and when you need to reapply it. This addon wasn't around in its more expanded state during Vanilla WoW, so getting to use it now should be a big boost for players.

Better Vendor Price

Really simple addon that displays how much you can sell an item for to a vendor while it's in your inventory. This is just useful knowledge to know for if you're bags are full and you want to get rid of something but don't want to throw away something valuable.

Classic Castbars

Believe it or not, you cannot see what spell an enemy is casting in WoW: Classic. It's actually used as a tactic by some to force them to waste a Counterspell or spell disabling ability. Classic Castbars seeks to solve that issue but it comes with a caveat. Apparently, you can't distinguish the rank of a spell within the WoW API. So, the castbar is not always going to be accurate and assumes every spell cast is the highest rank of the spell. While that isn't 100% useful, being able to know what spell is about to be cast by your enemy is still very useful. If you're going to play a lot of PvP, then you're going to want to grab this addon.

Deadly Boss Mods

This is a huge one if you're going to be doing a lot of raiding. If you've played any WoW in the past, you're likely familiar with this. The addon will warn you when a boss is about to use certain abilities that might require you to move, if you need to counter their spell, and lots of other things.

OneBag3

If you want all of your bags combined into one massive looking inventory then this is one of the best addons for that purpose!

Auctionator

Auctionator is one of those addons you're really going to need if you want to make enough gold to get your early mount and again when you want to get an epic one! It helps track the cost of items, and will store the cost of how much certain items are being auctioned. You can use this information to undercut the competition, but also to purchase certain items for a lower than usual price and sell it for more later. You can also flat out purchase all of the supply of a certain item then jack up the price. There's a lot of versatility here, and gaming the auction house can be a lot of fun when you pull off a big score!

Atlas Loot Classic

If you're one of those players that is getting close to 60 or is already there, then you'll want to make use of this mod. This will show you a full list of the best in slot items for your class and where-to get them! Not only that, it also shows all of the loot that can drop from specific bosses and dungeons. This is an important mod for anyone who plans to find themselves in dungeons and raids for the foreseeable future.

Druid Bar Classic

This is obvious a Druid only mod, but it's a pretty important one. If you find yourself shapeshifting a lot, you might lose track of how much mana you have! This can be quite annoying because when you shift back to heal or cast a spell, you might not have enough to pay for the spell. Well, this mod will give you an estimated value of the mana you still have while in your other forms. It shows it in a bar directly on your nameplate (you can move it), so it is a pretty clean way to give yourself some additional knowledge.

Dominos Classic

If you really hate the standard UI in World of Warcraft then you can alter it completely with the Dominos addon. This will remove the backgrounds completely and allow you to move the bars wherever you want ton the screen. If you want a clean layout, then this is one of the best addons to have!
