Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium #42: Warriors
Segment 42: Add-ons for Warriors
Warriors fall into that World of Warcraft category that can either tank or DPS; with that in mind, we’ll look at a few add-ons that lend themselves to these roles.
First up is TidyThreat, which is a plug-in for TidyPlates. TidyPlates modifies the nameplates you see over the heads of mobs, and TidyThreat makes it instantly clear, using color bars, which mobs are loose, which have aggro on you, and which don’t. It’s easy to switch the color scheme for Tank or DPS, and you can turn on a “detail” window which will tell you who has threat, and how much. If you only want to use one add-on for tanking,, it should be TidyPlates with TidyThreat. The default display is thermometer-like, and it’s incredibly simple; as stated by the author, “If you’re DPSing: Don’t go into the RED! If you’re tanking: Stay in the RED!”
SpellFlash: Warrior is a plug-in for SpellFlash which will flash above your ability buttons, to suggest your next move.
TankadinTps is a threat analyzer for several classes; this is especially useful for the theory-crafting players.
Nutty War Announce is a useful add-on with an unfortunate name; it will display chat text announcements of the warrior’s use of various abilities.
Please see the segment notes for links to the add-ons.
Music for this segment is the Dragon Warrior theme from Realm of Darkness.
