Addons I cannot live without

I am a HUGE addon person.  In fact I run with 90 of them, though I should probably clean some of them up.  I have my custom ui ones, and then I have quality of life ones and class-specific ones.  I figured I'd share some of my favorite quality of life ones with you...  and the best part is that most of these require little or no setup.  Just install and enjoy.

Altaholic.  Best addon ever.  I dunno how I'd survive without it.  If you have more than one toon on a server, you want this.  Heck, if you have more than one toon period, you want this. I can check all my toons bags, their professions (including being able to link them in chat), find out if they have mail and when it will expire, and so much more.  Great great addon.

Bagnon.  I have this issue with way too many things in my bags and I can never find what I'm looking for when I need it.  Bagnon's search function saves my arse.  It does share some functionality with altaholic, namely the ability to see what's in other toons bags and banks, so you might want a less fully functional bag addon.  I kinda want the ability to sort soulbound items from nonsoulbound items, but that's not a big deal.

GnomishVendorShrinker.  It's a nice simple little addon.  Just compacts the vendor frame so you can see more at once.  Like most Tekkub addons, it's small and does one thing very well.  I would heartily recommend checking out Tekkub's addons as they're generally simple and do one thing well.

OmniCC.  Yay having a countdown timer on my buttons.  Yup. that's what this does.  

Talented.  Okay, this is a great great addon.  Basically it allows you to import specs from wowhead and the armory, set them as targets (for leveling toons so you can see where to put your points), apply them completely (making respecing a breeze), and you can name them.  I originally installed this so I could label the blood tank and blood dps specs on my death knight, and now I'm not sure how I ever lived without it.  The ability to set a spec as the target makes placing talent points as you level really easy.

I think all of these are beyond great, and well worth investigating.

  1. Altoholic completely and utterly rocks. This is one of the addons that I -must- have loaded unless it's throwing me hundreds of errors.

    Talented looks really cool, I will have to try that one out.
