22 Best Addons for WoW Classic – Mods Just like Vanilla World of Warcraft

WoW Classic can be a major pain to play as it is. Some features that you might think are essential are not part of the game.

That is why players use addons to make the gameplay and their life easier.

Some of these add-ons affect gameplay while others offer quality of life features. Here are the top 22 best addons for WoW Classic that every true gamer needs.

Best Addons for WoW Classic

Here are some addons that are confirmed working with WoW Classic. As you might expect, most addons are from modern WoW or even back from vanilla. 

Still, WoW classic is totally new under the hood, meaning that many addons are not yet updated or supported for the new client. We’ll update this list as more and more addons are getting released.

Questie The Classic Quest Helper

These are two add-ons but we have put them together because they work well with one another. The Vanilla Guide is a guide of how you can level most effectively in the game. It will tell you what to do, where to go and what to pick. The person that has written the guide had the fastest level to 60 time so you can trust it.

Questie shows you the quests that are available to you depending on your level. The quests are marked on the map for your convenience. It does kill the lore of the game a little bit but if you are interested in level up to 60 as fast as possible then this is how you can do just that. Both of these add-ons can cut a lot of your playtime and get you to level 60 much faster.

Lazy Pig

Lazy pig can come in handy when you are in raids. Coins drop and you have to pick them up one by one. The Lazy Pig add-on will make life easier by automatically picking up gold. The add-on call also does some other cool stuff like auto accepting invites that you get from people.

If you are waiting for an invite to a raid but you have to go AFK for a while then you can get that invite and accept it without you having to be there at your computer. There are some other features that the add-on has to offer as well. It is very easy to use and customizable.

Enemy Cast Bar

There are no casting bars in the regular game but with this add-on, you will be able to see the casting bars of your enemies. This will tell you which spells you need to interrupt.

Buff Enough Classic

This will come in handy for casting in a raid. If you are a druid or mage then this add-on will come in handy. Some buffs only apply to the group that you are in and not the whole raid. This add-on will keep track of who has a buff or who does not have a buff in the raid.

Atlas World Map Classic

This is a pretty popular add-on in WoW Classic. Atlas Loot shows you the different dungeons and raids on the map. It will also tell you where the different bosses are. If you are not familiar with a dungeon or need to know which boss you will be up against then you will be able to see that with this add-on. It will also tell you the different loot that the bosses drop.

This add-on keeps track of any debuffs that you have on a target. If you are a healer then you can keep track of the renews that you have.

Decursive

This is another highly customizable add-on that you can use in WoW classic. It keeps track of the people in the raid that have a curse. Instead of checking this by yourself you can see who has the curve with this add-on. You can also prioritize decursing some classes over others. Tanks, for example, will take more damage so you can prioritize decursing them first over other classes.

Luna Unit Frames

This add-on allows you to keep different UI elements close to one another. If you have a large display then the UI might seem scattered. If you want things to be in a certain place or close together then you can use this add-on to do that. It also comes with a cast timer for yourself and the enemy.

You can move things around, make them bigger or smaller. You can keep track of your enemy and your enemy’s target as well. There are plenty of add-ons that do the same thing but this one is pretty popular and it is the one that we can recommend.

It looks great and can be customized.

Ignition

This add-on tells you which mage has the ignite and how much damage is being done. If you are in a group and you do not see your name on the add-on then that means that you do not have ignite. If your name does pop up then it means that you do have ignite and that you need to watch yourself so that you do not over-agro. You know how much damage is being done so you know when to slow down.

URL Copy

This add-on allows you to copy and paste a URL from the chat and to the chat. This can come in handy if you need to send a discord link or something else that you want to share with friends in-game.

So, you will be using this add-on from the moment you install to until you stop playing the game.

The customization is a bit complicated but once you get used to it, it is very easy to use and makes things much easier. Buying and selling is another topic entirely so we are not going to cover that here.

This allows you to collect everything from mailbox in just one click. Getting items from the mailbox can take a while and it can get very repetitive if you have a lot of items. This changes things and makes the same task much faster.
