Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.1 (2013); Essential Add-ons

[Jan 9, 2013 | One Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium.

This is the first segment to be recorded for 2013, and I thought I’d make it longer than usual, and list the add-ons that I consider essential.

For everyone, I recommend ArkInventory, AutoProfitX2, and BankStack. These three add-ons will help you keep your bags and bank organized, and turn junk items into a little jingle in your pockets. If your toon uses the …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.0.4 Segment 6; Routes and TomTom

[Sep 25, 2012 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

This is the Icesnake, and I am here to tell you about another pair of add-ons to help with your gathering professions.

Back in Segment 3 for WoW 5.0.4 I told you about Routes and GatherHUD. This time I’m going to tell you how to use Routes with a different way of displaying your directional information, an add-on called TomTom.

If you listened to Segment 3, you already know that Routes will plan a route …

Icesnake’s Add-On Emporium: WoW 5.0.4 Segment 3; GatherHud and Routes

[Sep 9, 2012 | Comments Off] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

This is The Icesnake, and I’m here to tell you about another pair of must-have addons for anyone with a gathering profession or two.

With the apparent abandonment of the Carbonite Add-on by the developers, there’s a huge gap left for those of us who are used to having routes to our next gathering location shown right in front of us. While there has been at least one community update to Carbonite, it’s still incomplete …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: An Unappealing Appeal

[Aug 31, 2012 | Comments Off] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

Firstly, if you’ve listened to my segments, thanks!

Now to brass tacks. When I was recording my segments for the show, I tried to find good music for the background, music that was free and also interesting, and recorded in good quality. Freeplaymusic.com seemed to meet all of those criteria. Unfotunately, I didn’t read their terms of use correctly, and as a result, I now know that my use was a violation of copyright. As …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium Addendum: Archeology

[Jan 18, 2011 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

In the Wowphiles podcast #54, Modem mentioned three add-ons to help us archeologists, but they didn’t get linked in the show notes,  so here’s where you can get them:

Archy (pronounced like the perennial comic book teenager, “Archie”) is an assistant for Archaeologists that want information at their finger tips.

GatherMate2 and GatherMate2 Data collects Herbs, Mines, Gas Clouds, Artifacts, Fossils and Fishing locations and adds them to the worldmap and minimap. Updated for …

Segment 31: Panda and Xloot

Again this week we have two add-ons to make your WoW life better: Panda and Xloot

Xloot is a replacement for the default loot frame, with a few options. The one we are specifically interested in here prevents the loot window from appearing at all if you have autoloot turned on. The slash command is:

/xloot behavior swiftloot

Panda is another of the many add-ons from Tekkub. Originally mean for …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium, Segment #10: Advanced Trade Skill Window

[Jun 22, 2010 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre


Segment Number 10: Advanced Trade Skill Window

Guest voice by Victoria Tietjens

Advanced Trade Skill Window (which I herinafter refer to as “ATSW”) is a complete replacement for Blizzards tradeskill window with more overview and special functions.

This replacement, which works for all tradeskills, including enchanting, provides you with:

- a better overview
ATSW is bigger than the standard window, resulting in a much better overview over the thousands of items you can produce. Additionally, …

[Jun 7, 2010 | 3 Comments] by: Jason Zimmerman

This post comes to us courtesy of our listener Kurg from the Kargath server. He has some ideas on how to make fishing more interesting.

I have noticed a big question lately has been: how can blizzard make fishing more interesting? One suggestion might be to make fishing more in depth like a crafting profession. For example, fishing lures could be created by recipes. A player could make certain lures with recipes and those lures …
