Addons - AtlasLoot v6.00.00 Released
The latest version of AtlasLoot has been released and is now fully updated for Cataclysm.

Most importantly, the new Cataclysm client changed how items are stored in the client and you no longer have to wait for the item to be active on your server to have it displayed properly in AtlasLoot. The current version of Atlasloot should get you a decent list of most of the items you will get in the expansion and you should be able to check most of them in-game with the proper drop location, ability to try them out in the dress-up room, etc...

    Hot damn! Why did they remove the collision on the banners? It was so much fun to mess around with!

    They also fixed the dwarves in BRD (summoner's tomb) giving 60 rep each it seems - I knew I should've finished it last night!

    That high end graphics card is not that far above the 6870, and if you are going to crossfire the 6870 will perform a lot better than two 5870's because they fixed scaling this gen. The highest end cards you can get right now are the GTX 580 or the HD 5970 with the new 6970 and 6990 coming out soon from AMD.

    Some completely silly choices on those hardware setups, but I guess it's still nice for people who have 0 clue about how to upgrade thier computer.

    Already revered with the Goblins and I've barely been in game today.

    Hopefully some people are on tomorrow so I can run more, 19,900ish to go

    Define silly choice. (And I mean, really silly, not arguing about a 3% perf gain, this isn't a hardware site )

    I'm still unable to complete Uther's tribute.

    Gosh damn DK tank Nerfs anyone?
    Hope the armor Damage Reduction is just being leveled with the rest of the tanks...
    But with the CD's being weakened, lack of block percentage to be another form of damage reduction, and now armor bonus being cut in half...
    I hope this a momentary phase while balancing all tank classes, just ouch.

    major nerf for DK tanks oO

    Try a clean reinstall.

    1. Delete every AtlasLoot folder (even the files in the wtf folder).
    2. Log in.
    3. Completely log out.
    4. Reinstall AtlasLoot.
    5. Hope it works.

    If you still have problems send me a mail to hegarol(at)atlasloot.net

    They bump Arathi XP right after I complete the zone -.-

    I was wondering why I was getting less XP in Arathi than I was in the latter quests of Wetlands.

    The computer section idea is great, but I wonder why you include anything other than a computer in it honestly? Don't get me wrong, I like seeing that all I REALLY have to do is subtract the costs of stuff like the monitor/keyboard/mouse/speakers which I already have good ones of to get a real price, but since most of the important costs of a new computer are, well, the computer itself, listing those things seems silly.


    Still, easy enough to subtract, and a good section idea.

    Just went into WPL to test it, still doesn't work. Dumped the quest, picked up again - no luck
