0

In World of Warcraft Classic, addons are an integral part of the player experience. In order to help you prepare, we've drawn up a selection of the best WoW Classic addons, whether for leveling, PvE, PvP, or basic interface improvements.

WoW Classic Addons: Which to use

Contrary to popular belief, addons were a part of Vanilla's original gaming experience. Thus, we offer our selection of the best addons in general for WoW Classic. Of course, there are many others that are at least as useful or more specific, but we will only be interested in the most useful to the majority of players.

Warning, some add-ons may be considered expired by WoW, and will not work. In this case we advise you to install via the Twitch application (Curse).

Atlas and Atlas Classic WoW

Available via the Twitch app

To put it simply, Atlas Classic WoW is the ancestor of the Battle for Azeroth Adventurer's Journal. Not only does it make it possible to know the loot table of each boss thanks to a widely provided database, but it even offers the drop rate of most items, as well as a map of each instance! Essential.

  • You can download the addon here.

Important note: This addon works in conjunction with the Atlas addon, which can be downloaded at the following link. Without it, Atlas Classic WoW will not work.

Auctionator Classic (quickfix)

Auctionator is the simplified version of Auctionneer that many players use in Battle for Azeroth. It has all, or almost all, of its basic features to ensure unparalleled efficiency when you buy or sell at the Auction House. Since this is the best place to make gold in Classic, it's an essential addon, whether you buy or sell regularly at the auction house or not.

BigWigs Classic

Available via the Twitch app

Although less effective than in Battle for Azeroth, BigWigs is available on WoW Classic and is the most effective at this time. Its counterpart, Deadly Boss Mods - Classic is also available to meet all expectations, the difference between one and the other being very minimal. For the few players who do not know these two addons, they can track the upcoming bosses of each raid, allowing you to anticipate your investments and techniques accordingly.

  • It is possible to get BigWigs Classic here.

Details! Damage Meter

Available via the Twitch app

Details of this app have recently appeared in WoW Classic. Very powerful, it's the most popular and effective of all DamageMeters and is probably a good replacement for KTM when it comes to threat management. For players who are unfamiliar with this addon, it works on the same basis as Recount or Skada, but adds many features in addition to the basic measure of DPS and HPS provided by players in the group.

EZDismount

EZDismount allows you to automatically dismount when interacting with an object (such as a treasure chest or quest item), a flight master, or attempting to perform any action that requires you to be off your mount.

Improved Error Frame

Purely aesthetic, Improved Error Frame makes it possible to no longer display on your screen all the errors that you can trigger by doing a lot of actions in Azeroth, such as the one displayed when you are on a mount and when you try to interact with an object for example. These errors, however, remain accessible in a dedicated tab, in case one of them would cause you a problem.

KLHThreatMeter

KLHThreatMeter, also known as KLM, is a powerful addon essential for all players in Classic. Operating in a very similar way to Details! and Recount, it allows you to have a preview of the threat that you generate and thus allows you to know if you must ease off your DPS/HPS. You can also report your current threat to your group.
