Helpful World of Warcraft UI Mods

Edit: I no longer play World of Warcraft (actually haven’t played since June or July of ’05). I’ll leave this here though because my #1 search phrases are dealing with WoW. Once my finances get straighted up I’ll probably subscribe again, until then though you can only visit these somewhat out of date links.

I decided to put together a list of the various World of Warcraft UI Mods I use or have used so I can refer my guildmates to them without having them write down a ton of URLs.

  • Showdown – Adds a handy little bar to the top of your screen which displays several different statistics while you are in battle. This mod can cause slow down in the UI during combat.
  • Norganna’s Page – Houses several different mods, namely Auctioneer and Enchantrix.

    Auctioneer (v1.10) is an addon that plugs into LootLink (included) to provide your tooltips with additional information on the average auction prices, number of times seen at auction and estimated vendor buy/sell price. This plugin is primarily for letting you choose what the best price to sell something for is.

    Another mod on this site is great for enchanters because it will keep track of what items disenchant into.

  • WoW AddOns by Kaitlin – I’m not actually using any of these mods but I bookmarked it for some reason
  • GypsyMod – A few enhancements, a second bar, unit bar, etc. I’ve got the full version installed here
  • Telo’s AddOns – LootLink, Sidebar, and Clock
  • Mugen’s One Stop UI shop – All in One Inventory, basicly turns all your bag windows into one big one. Kind of slow to operate, but it beats having to search through every bag to find something. This site also has several other mods, but I’m not using them.
  • Quest History – Keeps a running tab of all the quests you have accepted, completed, failed, or abandoned. Also includes various bits of information about the quest, when you accepted it, who gave it to you and where, etc.

There you have it, enjoy!

  2. I’m not aware of that mod; but its been quite a while since I’ve looked at any mods for WoW.

    Creating a new one may be difficult though; starting with one of the patches the built-in UI stuff is now signed and can’t be changed. Because of that it may not be possible to modify the compass anymore. You might try asking the folks on the UI Scripting forums at worldofwarcraft.com to see if someone has done it or has an idea how to do it with the changes that have been made.

  4. There have been some great mods that have come out in the past two years that could be added here. Many mods have been incorporated into the game itself.

    There is also a “Scroll of Resurrection” that will give you 10 days of free time to see if you want to play again, and will give the person that gave it to you a months free time if you sign up for even one month of paid playing. If you decide to play again have one of your friends use the Scroll on you and hook them up!
