Guide to World of Warcraft Addons: Fun WoW Add ons – Altered Gamer

World of warcraft walkthrough mods

One of the greatest innovations that Blizzard provided the MMO community with the release of World of Warcraft was the ability to customize the game with addons. Since launch, an unbelievable number of useful and not-so-useful mods have sprung up for the game. Some make a huge difference in the PvE or PvP side of the game, while others have little actual value, and serve more as interesting diversions.

I’ve spent some time exploring these so-called “useless” addons to discover the most interesting and amusing of the bunch. Whether you’re trying to find a way to manage your many companion pets or simply searching for a fun way to waste a little in-game time, there’s something here you’re sure to enjoy.

Bejeweled

Bejeweled is perhaps the most popular casual game of all time. Players match like-colored jewels, causing them to disappear and be replaced by more jewels ripe for matching. Bejeweled exists in many forms, available for the Xbox 360, cell phones, various handheld consoles, online at popcap.com, and now as an addon for World of Warcraft.

Bejeweled installs like any addon, and provides instant in-game fun whenever you need to kill a bit of time. Fire it up every time you’re waiting for a battleground to start, trying to assemble a party to run an instance, or whenever you find yourself on a lengthy flight over scenery you’ve seen too many times already.

When you have the Bejeweled addon installed, you actually begin to look forward to in-game downtime. The next addon on the list can have a similar effect on your opinion of waiting in-game.

Peggle

Peggle is another incredibly-addictive addon from PopCap games. Like Bejeweled, you simply install it and can then fire it up in-game whenever the mood strikes you.

The gameplay is like an amalgam of the famous Price is Right game “Plinko” and the classic game Breakout. Players fire a ball toward a series of pegs, which then bounces around, making any pegs it comes into contact with disappear.

There are ten or so levels, each with multiple objectives. The primary goal is to eliminate all orange pegs from a level, once that’s done you can move on to the far more arduous task of eliminating all pegs.

The Warcraft version of Peggle is WoW-themed, with each of the levels corresponding to a major city or zone within the game. Beating levels awards you talent points which you can then use to gain bonuses to point gains and the like, similar to leveling up your WoW character.

Peggle has a few interesting options, such as opening automatically anytime you jump on a flight or find yourself dead. Interrupted games simply resume as soon as you restart the addon.

Comix: The Return

Comix is one of those addons you’re either going to instantly love or absolutely hate. It adds custom sounds and graphic elements to your WoW experience that drastically change the way you view combat. 60’s era Batman-style words like “Slam!” “Swoosh!” and “Kapow!” every time you score a critical hit in combat. Custom sounds accompany many of your in-game actions, including various sounds from Mortal Kombat and Unreal Tournament whenever you score a kill or die in combat and a comical “boing!” sound every time you hit the jump key.

At first I found these new additions a fresh new way of looking at combat, after several hours of gigantic phrases blocking my view of the combat action, the novelty began to wear off. Comix is a fun diversion, but I seriously doubt any serious player will want it running while they’re trying to raid or participate in PvP.

Despite its shortcomings, it’s definitely worth checking out. Love it or hate it, it’s one of the most unique and interesting WoW addons available.

PetLeash

Serious WoW pet collectors can amass upwards of 80+ pets on one character. Choosing just one of these pets to display can be a daunting task, one which many players simply avoid, either continually using just one favorite pet or failing to show any of them off at all.

PetLeash provides an automated solution to this dilemma. This addon will automatically summon a random pet from your collection whenever it is appropriate. With PetLeash, you will always have a pet following along behind you, and the random nature of the selection ensures that even those pets you never thought you’d get around to showing off have their moment in the sun.

PetLeash has a limited ability to determine when having a pet out might be inappropriate, such as when summoning one might break stealth or cause you to dismount, but it will occasionally trigger your global cooldown at inopportune times. I don’t recommend it for Rogues or Druids who use stealth often, but for anyone else it can be a fun diversion.

Each of these addons brings a new dimension to World of Warcraft that, while pretty much unnecessary, can add to your enjoyment of the game. Each is worth checking out, even if you find yourself hating them, removal is just a delete button away.

War Mode

War Mode allows players on any realm to participate in open-world PvP with like-minded players in the ongoing battle between the Horde and the Alliance. Turning on War Mode applies the Enlisted buff and provides incentives to compensate for the perceived risk of being targettable by the opposing faction.

Players may only activate War Mode at Stormwind City or Orgrimmar by using the Talents interface, or deactivate War Mode at any rested location (including inns and other cities).

Contents

Background

War Mode replaced previous open-world PvP concepts which had endured from Classic until Legion:

  • PvP realms with players always targetable by the opposing faction; and
  • PvE realms where players could opt in/out in the span of five minutes from anywhere in the world.

With people opting into the War Mode experience from any server, Blizzard can now tailor quests for those interested in it while avoiding the potential stigma and separation of friends being locked to different types of servers. All those who queue up for War Mode will be on one server shard, and those who do not will be on another. However, the sharding is ignored in the capital cities of Stormwind and Orgrimmar and players with War Mode can rejoin their non-enlisted peers by toggling the mode off in any rested place.

Incentives

With War Mode enabled, a +10% bonus applies to experience from quests and mob kills, and to gold, currency or Azerite Power from world quests. If a faction is outnumbered, a War Mode: Call to Arms adds up to a further +20% bonus. Furthermore, if there participation is overwhelmingly one-sided then the opposing faction will be offered the [120] Against Overwhelming Odds quest as even further incentive to participate.

Air Drops

Infrequently, flying machines on Zandalar and zeppelins on Kul Tiras will make its way across the sky within a zone and will eventually drop a War Supply Crate where players can fight over and claim it for their faction, similar to the chest in the Gurubashi Arena. Once a faction has gained control of the crate, anyone of that faction who is within the area will have a short period to open it and collect a piece of personal loot. [1]

The time limit between each air drop is speculated to be around 20 minutes, but that hasn’t always been the case.

Bounty Hunter System

Killing a certain number of players of the opposite faction, without dying awards the status of Assassin that increases damage and healing by 15%. The downside to this, the more players an Assassin kills, the more likely they will show up on the zone map for other players to target and to gain a bounty. Players who successfully kill an Assassin of the opposite faction will receive Conquest points as well as other rewards. There can be three or possibly more Assassins on Zandalar or Kul Tiras at a time, providing plenty of opportunity for players or groups of players to take their revenge on the opposite faction’s Assassins. [1] This system was available in Darkshore during the War of the Thorns limited-time event. [2]

The following buff is applied upon entering Zandalar or Kul Tiras with War Mode enabled:

Upon killing 10 players of the opposing faction, the Assassin buff will be applied.

After killing multiple players of the opposing faction and obtaining the assassin buff, the opposing faction will place a bounty on the player with the Bounty Hunted debuff.

World of Warcraft community rallies for the creator of a beloved mod

World of Warcraft’s most essential mod is maintained by one man

A spellwing and Khadgar prepare the path to a Legion raid in World of Warcraft Blizzard Entertainment

Raiding in World of Warcraft, no matter what level of difficulty you choose, is challenging. Even the Looking for Raid difficulty, which is meant to be conquerable by any player, requires some degree of coordination and effort. Once you get up to Mythic, everyone needs to know the strategy and be ready to execute it. Actively raiding with Blizzard’s default UI is considered to be a hindrance; the base game doesn’t include damage meters or a way to gauge your success, and you rely on in-game voice cues and animations for telegraphed abilities.

Here’s where Deadly Boss Mods enters in. It’s a one-man operation that shows everything you could need: timers, abilities, rotations, warnings and more. The mod provides audio cues and turns opaque encounters into clear problems to be solved. It’s an amazing tool, and the World of Warcraft community recently rallied when it became clear Deadly Boss Mods’ developer was unable to continue working on it.

On Sept. 16, developer Adam Williams, who posts under the name MysticalOS, shared a lengthy update on his current life circumstances via the Deadly Boss Mods dev blog. He wrote that he works on DBM full time while living with his disabled mother as her caretaker. Williams had also been updating content for Battle for Azeroth while playing on a PC that could barely handle the latest boss fights. His situation is compounded by health issues, which he opened up about in his post.

I have health issues because I can’t afford medical insurance or to have dental surgery I need. I take fish antibiotics to manage an abscess tooth I’ve had since Legion pre-expansion event. Unfortunately, as my body has gotten more resistant to antibiotics, the infection has spread to 2 other teeth and even begun to spread to parts of my jaw now and if I don’t have it treated soon, it could escalate into a blood infection. I’ve delayed it as long as I could with self-medicating to try and save up money to get treatment.

Again, I don’t want either of above to sound like I’m asking for anything. This isn’t a huge plea for money either, I still hate asking. Merely trying to explain the stresses that have been upon me for a while now and brought me so low some days and made me doubt my work and myself and consider giving up. Any time I’d think about that though, I’d realize I can’t do that for two reasons. I’m not comfortable spending 8-12 hours a day working in field and no one watching over mother, which in the last 2 years alone has had two heart attack scares. I need to be at home. The second reason I can’t give up is that I just love working on DBM too much and I firmly believe that as long as there is a WoW, there should be a DBM.

The situation was further complicated by the fact that previous issues with Patreon failing to process donations had kneecapped Williams’ monthly support. In a Patreon post, he wrote:

December was a hard month for DBM. Patreon ran off a lot of supporters with a proposed change that they later reverted but not until damage was done. Support has dropped significantly.

Williams’ health and life updates were distributed through social media sites and on World of Warcraft news pages. Each topic had Williams’ Patreon and PayPal accounts linked, with moderators and writers encouraging the community to support him. The community left thousands of messages of support, with most users noting that they had used Deadly Boss Mods continuously throughout their World of Warcraft careers. The mod, which has been active since vanilla World of Warcraft and became Williams’ full-time pursuit during Mists of Pandaria, had become a natural extension of the game for many users. Many commenters noted that they were shocked there was just one person behind the mod; they had simply assumed there was a team hard at work.

Since Williams’ post and the ensuing community support, he has reached the top donation goal on his Patreon, which he marks as an amount where “I honestly don’t need to worry about anything anymore,” and “Don’t reach this goal. You’ve exceeded all my goals and more.” In a more tangible sense, Williams notes that, with this level of Patreon support, he will be able to hire a second developer if necessary.

Most importantly, Williams will be able to seek immediate care for his teeth.

World of Warcraft has been around for 14 years, and raiding and dungeons have continually been one of the most important features of the game. Without Deadly Boss Mods, the entire scene would likely be less well developed. With competitive guild Method’s streamed World First race through the recently released raid Uldir, it doesn’t seem like raid hype will die down any time soon. The next raid, which will restart the race for World First records, is 8.1’s Siege of Zuldazar. Hopefully, with the initial success of Battle for Azeroth, and the increased interest in raiding that came along with the chase to down G’huun first, we’ll continue to see Williams remain comfortable and able to work on his passion projects. That goes for mod makers of all kinds.

WoW Classic Ghost Mushroom Farming Guide

Ghost Mushrooms are one of the most sought after crafting materials in the end game of World of Warcraft Classic. The reagent is used in a variety of high end potions and is needed for the completion of the Warlock Epic Mount quest. In this guide, you’ll be shown the best places to farm for Ghost Mushrooms, whether you are an herbalist or not.

What are they for?

Ghost Mushrooms are used predominantly in the creation of magical potions through the Alchemy profession. Of the many potions that can be created with Alchemy, the ones that require Ghost Mushrooms are the following:

  • Elixir of Demonslaying
  • Elixir of Shadow Power
  • Invisibility Potion
  • Limited Invulnerability Potion – Perhaps the biggest reason that Ghost Mushrooms are sought after

Also, while not a potion directly, Ghost Mushroom is also used to create Ghost Dye, which is itself a material needed for the creation of a number of Tailoring recipes.

In addition, as previously stated, they are also necessary for the completion of the Warlock Epic Mount Quest, which requires the use of no less than two Elixir of Shadow Power.

Where can they be found?

The where of a Ghost Mushroom is directly related to the how, as there are three methods of procuring them.

The first and most obvious is through Herbalism, which is also the method of acquiring them in abundance. Ghost Mushrooms only grow in certain, very specific locations.

The Hinterlands

Here in the Hinterlands, you’ll find Ghost Mushrooms in and all around Skull Rock, just about in the center of the map. You’ll also find a limited number in the cave on the Western side of Jintha’Alor.

Desolace

In Desolace, you’ll find the mushrooms all over the Western side of the Valley of Spears.

The Arathi Highlands

In a small cave in the Northeast of the zone, you will find a small cache of herb nodes for Ghost Mushroom. The cave is almost directly north of Hammerfall.

Mauradon

Ghost Mushrooms grow near the entrance to Maraudon, as well as all throughout its interior. A tried and true strategy for Rogues is to farm the reagent here by sneaking past all of the mobs to harvest all of the nodes. Once finished, you can reset the dungeon and the herbalism nodes will have reset as well!

Un’Goro Crater

There is only one location within Un’Goro to harvest Ghost Mushrooms from herbalism nodes, and that is at Fungal Rock. There are also mobs that drop Ghost Mushrooms that spawn in Un’Goro discussed below.

Dire Maul

Ghost Mushrooms can also be found growing in Dire Maul East, which also has a mob or two that drops them.

One can also procure Ghost Mushrooms as a drop from certain mobs. This is slightly simpler, but also difficult if you are not of higher level and time consuming.

  • The Whip Lasher has the single highest drop rate for Ghost Mushrooms, but they are of a high level and can be difficult to take on it groups. They spawn within Dire Maul.
  • The Bloodpetal Flayer in Un’Goro Crater has a drop rate of 1.14%, is not a heavy challenge to a max level character, but they are often surrounded by mobs that can cause more trouble than one might expect.
  • Probably the best mob to farm Ghost Mushrooms from is the Gnarled Thistleshrub. They are of a level where killing them is nigh on effortless for a fully geared level 60 and they spawn in a large group just south of the entrance to Un’Goro.

Finally, one can also purchase Ghost Mushrooms from a specific vendor, or from the auction house. This is easily the simplest method, but also the most costly, because they are both valuable and scarce. The only merchant that sells Ghost Mushrooms in game is Lhara, a merchant at the Darkmoon Faire. Outside of that, you’ll have to check the auction house, but don’t fret, there are plenty of people who hunt for them so you don’t have to. Make no mistake though, they will cost you.

Well, that’s all there is to know about Ghost Mushrooms in World of Warcraft Classic. Oh, and, well…don’t…just don’t eat them. Their like SUPER kill you poisonous. Happy Mushroom Hunting!

World of Warcraft Classic players are stuck in hours-long queues

Blizzard Entertainment via Polygon

Last week, Blizzard warned players that certain World of Warcraft Classic realms could reach login queues of over 10,000 players. With World of Warcraft Classic’s official North American launch on Monday evening, thousands of players proved Blizzard right.

World of Warcraft Classic’s servers hours before launch Blizzard Entertainment via Polygon

A few hours prior to launch, nearly all of Classic’s servers were full — which comes with a warning that players will encounter a lengthy queue. Blizzard has added a few new servers over the past week, ensuring an even spread of players.

Despite the massive interest, Blizzard is apprehensive to add too many new servers before launch.

“Our top priority in planning for WoW Classic’s launch has been ensuring that we are laying the groundwork for strong realm communities that will endure over the months and years to follow, which is why we’re cautiously opening new servers to meet demand,” said Blizzard.

The goal is to spread players out to diminish queues without destroying the sense of community that everyone loved about Vanilla World of Warcraft.

It’s unclear how long these 1,000 player queues will last. But if you intend to play World of Warcraft Classic at all this week, it may be worth logging on a few hours before you actually want to start playing.

We’ll update this story as World of Warcraft Classic queues diminish.

Viewer’s Guide: Mythic Dungeon International 2020

We’re back, dungeon-runners! The Mythic Dungeon International (MDI) is coming to YouTube beginning April 11. There have been some major changes this year, but the MDI is still pushing the craziest keys and facing the most fearsome affixes. Here’s everything you need to know.

Where to Watch

All of the MDI events this year will be streamed live via YouTube. You can subscribe to the Warcraft YouTube channel and hit the bell to be notified when broadcasts are live. Check out the Warcraft YouTube Community tab for more great content.

Format Changes

We’ve made a few changes to the format this year, the Europe and Asia (EU/Asia) division includes players from Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Korea, China, and Taiwan.

The Americas division includes players from The Americas, Australia, and New Zealand.

Teams will participate in the division based on where the majority of their team’s players reside.

Broadcast Schedule

All MDI Cups will broadcast on Saturdays and Sundays local region time on the Warcraft YouTube channel. See below for the broadcast dates and start times by region.

Pacific Time

Central European Summer Time

New Year, New Dungeon, New Affix

We’ve added a new dungeon to the rotation this year with Operation: Mechagon. This dungeon provides 8 challenging bosses split in two separate wings—Junkyard and Workshop.

With the Visions of N’Zoth content update comes a new season of competitive play and a new Affix to contend with—Awakened.

While the Awakened affix is active, players will discover obelisks throughout the dungeon, which will pull players through the veil to the shadowy world of Ny’alotha. There, players will confront a powerful servant of N’Zoth which they must defeat, or the servant will join forces with the final boss in the instance.

Language Streams

MDI Americas

MDI EU & Asia

Casters

Hailing from Italy, Caroline “Naguura” Forer has come a long way from waiting for her brothers to get off the computer so she could log in and play her Paladin. “When I couldn’t play, I would just sit for hours and watch my brothers play, then jump straight on as soon as they left the chair,” she said. From Paladin to Druid and from healing to damage, Caroline grew up with the game and went on to establish herself at the core of the EU PvE scene. Now with years of experience, a multitude of World Firsts under her belt, and her own forays into WoW esports (both competing and casting), she returns to the MDI casting team.

Former captain of the 4-man MDI team Sinking Ship, and self-proclaimed #2 Balance Druid, Peyton “Tettles” Tettleton’s appearance on the MDI desk will be one for the ages. Overall, his goal for the broadcast is to help viewers understand what makes the runs successful. “There is a lot of nuance in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and being able to teach the path to victory for each team is important,” he said. You can catch him on his stream or on YouTube, where he primarily focuses on PVE content. He also authors the Wowhead Balance Druid Guide. He loves a good-natured meme and ridiculous photoshopped photos of himself.

Dan “AutomaticJak” Anzenberger has been a part of the MDI crew since the beginning, and he’s been topping off health pools in World of Warcraft for many years. He is most well-known for his healing guides for the past three expansions on YouTube and Wowhead, where he plays all healers but specializes in Holy/Discipline Priest and Mistweaver Monk. He enjoys sharing his love of healing, so if you’re a healer looking to step up your game, or a tank/DPS looking to better understand your healers, Jak will be here to cover it all.

Alex “Xyronic” Tatge is a Warlock extraordinaire, winning the first U.S. World First in the past eight years. You can find his guides on Wowhead, where he breaks down everything a master of shadow magic would need to know, including talent builds, Azerite gear, spell rotations, macros and addons, Mythic+ guides, and more.

Tristan “Dratnos” Killeen is a jack of all trades in World of Warcraft PvE. Raiding at a high level himself, he’s also done coverage for the Race to World First. In Mythic Keystone dungeons, he creates routes for each dungeon every week, and nearly made it to an MDI cup. Dratnos has a thorough understanding of all the different things that can go wrong in a dungeon and is ready to share that wisdom with you.

Gillian “Eiya” Long started working in esports in 2016. She has worked as a stats producer, observer, and tournament admin, and her passion for WoW esports is evident behind the camera and in-front. A WoW fan since Burning Crusade, Eiya debuted as sideline reporter and host last year. Most recently, she hosted the Complexity Limit Race to World First and the Keystone Masters Tournament.

Going Remote

For the health and safety of our casters and staff, the MDI will be moving to broadcast remotely. Fortunately, our broadcast schedule will continue as planned while our production and casters will be working from home.

World of warcraft walkthrough map

Lets face it … the default Blizzard UI is seriously lacking when it comes to looks and functionality. If you are a long time player you already know this, and if you are a new player it won’t be long before you find this out. That being said I applaud Blizzard for making it so easy for 3rd party coders to design Addons for their game client. Whether you are new to the World of Warcraft or an experienced player, Addons can greatly increase the enjoyment you get from the game. There are Raid Addons, Auction Addons, PvP (Player versus Player) Addons, Map Addons, and of course Addons that simply make the default Blizzard UI look better. Can you say “eye-candy!” In this article we will be taking a look at 5 of the more popular Map Addons and what functionality (if any) they offer.

Questhelper

Questhelper: is an in-game guide which will attempt to tell you what quests to do, in what order to do them, and where in the game world to go to complete them. This can cut down greatly on the time it takes you to complete quests and thus level.

Atlasloot Enhanced

Atlasloot Enhanced: is an Addon focusing on loot! Who doesn’t like loot? This Addon will allow you to browse an in-game database of loot tables for your favorite zone, mob (monster), or dungeon. You can find out what mob drops a specific item, how often the item is likely to drop, link the item in chat, and even try the item on in the dressing room!

Cartographer

Cartographer: is a jack of all trades when it comes to the manipulation of the world map. Change the transparency, position, and scale of the world map (my favorite use of this Addon), add notes, see all group/raid members, and many other useful features. One of the most powerful features of Cartographer is the fact it is modular allowing the addition of plugins to the Addon to increase it’s functionality. Highly recommended!

Atlas

Atlas: attempts to address the shortcomings of the default blizzard UI when it comes to instance (dungeon) maps. While traveling the world you can bring up a world map of each zone you travel to … except instances. This is where Atlas comes in. It’s basically an image viewer that displays a map of the current instance, complete with the location of bosses and other POI’s (points of interest). This is a simple but very useful Addon that I’d recommend to everyone.

Gatherer

Gatherer: is an Addon that remembers what “nodes” you have visited in the world whether you are a herbalist, miner, or treasure hunter! Each time you visit a node the Addon adds it to its database so the next time you are in the same location the node will show up on your mini-map. The display will show as a solid circle if the node is currently up or as an empty circle if the node is currently on cool-down.

Honorable Mention: SexyMap

SexyMap: This is a fairly new map Addon I have been using recently. It is pure eye-candy but a lot of fun. It allows you to move your minimap, hide buttons attached to the minimap, but most importantly allows you to set some very cool borders for your minimap! It’s true this Addon offers little in the way of functionality but be sure to check it out if you are a fan of eye-candy!

Conclusion

This is by no means a definitive list of map Addons for World of Warcraft. These are just a few of the more popular Addons gamers use to add functionality and flare to the default blizzard UI. Two of the best sources for World of Warcraft Addons are Curse and WoWUI. I recommend you visit each of these sites and take a look at the hundreds of Addons you can use to enhance your World of Warcraft UI. Watch your back and see you in Azeroth!
