    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

    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.

    why would you use skada and recount?
