    Lightbulb Top 10 wow addons - your opinion?

    Hi guys!

    I am considering to make a youtube guide with the headline idea just being "Top 10 Wow Addons". I like making guides and practising my video editing skills. I think I'm pretty good with wow addons, so I think I might be able to make a usefull guide.

    My list so far (yes, there is more than 10):
    - AtlasLoot Enhanced
    - Deadly Boss Mods
    - Bartender4
    - Recount/Skada
    - TidyPlates
    - PlateBuffs
    - TellMeWhen
    - Pitbull/Xperl/Shadow unit/unitframes addon
    - SexyMap
    - GatherMate2
    - Quartz
    - GTFO
    - OmniCC

    Now, I could easily just choose 10 of my own addons and then make the guide from that. And I allready have a pretty good idea of which addons I absolutely want to include in my guide - but I would really like to get some feedback before I put in countless of hours.
    I know it will be totally impossible to make everyone agree on "THE" best 10 addons in WoW, but I would love your opinions - also to check if I completely missed a great addon that everyone must have.
    The addon should not be specific to PvP or Raiding, but should ideally be something that will be used by the average wow-player who does a bit of everything.

    I made one addon guide about PlateBuffs/TidyPlates a few weeks back if anyone is interested in seeing something I've made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAjXJT0lKwY

    10 might be a bit much, I can't think of 10 addons I use that are so great and essential I'd list them. 5 seems more reasonable.

    1. WeakAuras
    2. DBM
    3. Skada
    4. [Insert Generic Raid Frame Addon Here] - I use CompactRaid
    5. TidyPlates

    EDIT: Sorry didn't read the OP properly.

    Bartender, TellMeWhen, OmniCC deserve to be in that aswell.

    1. Bartender4
    2. Bagnon
    3. Atlasloot
    4. DBM (good to have but I cleared ICC without even knowing it existed, was never a problem)
    5. Clique and Grid2 for my healers, always combined so counting as one.

    I don't use 10 addons <.<.

    The only addon I would add to your list is WeakAuras . Although I never used some of your addons (SexyMap, GTFO, PlateBuffs, TellMeWhen), they are still very popular, so they can't be that bad . Do you want to make a Video about addons in general or focus on combat/ui style/etc addons?

    My top 5 would be:
    1. WeakAuras2
    2. DBM
    3. Recount/Skada
    4. OmniCC
    5. Bartender4

    Best Regards

    My top 5 would be:
    1. Bartender4
    2. DeadlyBossMod
    3. Shadowed Unit Frames
    4. OmniCC
    5. Bagnon + Bagbrother

  6. #6
    Weak Auras, DBM, Skada, OmniCC, Atlasloot Enhanced, Shadowed Unit Frames, Dominos action bars, Bagnon, Quartz, MikScrollingBattleText, Prat 3.0, SexyMap.

    Thats a bit more than 10, but all of them are very integral to my UI and I wouldnt be happy if I had to play without any of them.

    I'm assuming you mean current addons. If you were to ask me of all time...now I can think of a few. But not 10

    1. Bagnon
    2. OmniCC
    3. Deadlybossmods
    4. Cosmos
    5. PallyPower

  8. #8
    PvE
    Weak Auras
    GTFO
    DBM

    PvP
    Gladius


    There are a lot of very good addons like Bartender, Adibags, Atlasloot, Recount, OmniCC, Prat that are very good, but imo those top 4 are pretty essential (for me) for playing well.

    Since I use Mayron UI the bulk of my addons are included..
    But added ones are:
    Bagnon
    DBM
    GTFO
    Flo Totem Bar
    Recount
    WIM / Cellular

    Weak Auras has to be top tbh
    Everything else is pretty much irrelevant given what you can do with WA

  12. #12
    Weakauras
    Bigwigs
    Skada
    Auctionator
    Rarity
    Postal + Bags
    FishingBuddy
    OmniCC

    -Elvui - compilation yes but honourable mention.

    I like how Omen isn't listed by anyone anymore, that's how hard it is to pull aggro in a raid haha.

    Hmmm.. considering I use like 35 addons it might be hard to pick 10 :P Lets see...

    UI:
    - Domino's
    - MSBT
    - KgPanels
    - Stuf
    - ForteXorcist
    - Grid
    - Raven
    - Quartz
    - TMW

    Utility:
    - Skada / Recount (using both)
    - Tidyplates
    - DBM/DPM (Boss and PVP mods, although I barely PvE)
    - Gladius / GladiatorLOSSA

    Gameplay enhance:
    - Atlasloot / Auctioneer
    - Mogit
    - Leatrix Plus


    And loads more which add lil, but for me valuable things to my UI build :P But I'd leave out the enhancing and kgpanels, dbm/dpm and skada/recount if I'd really have to pick 10.

    There's no addon I couldn't live without, but Weak Auras is the closest.
    That is not dead which can eternal lie.
    And with strange aeons even death may die.
