Addons I like.

This is a Warcraft post. If you don’t play, it’s probably not worth reading.

( I think i should note I am probably going to start posting more about Warcraft seeing as it’s most of what I do with my free time. I still knit and spin and such, but shmoo and I play wow together, and so it happens more often than the solo crafting.)

If you do, here’s a list of all the addons I use and what they do. Some are for my mage, some are for my feral tanking druid, some are for healing… but most get used by all, and there’s a lot of them. Every now and then I try to go through and remove a few, or find something new that replaces two or three with just one. And sometimes, I go for the small bits that just do specific things instead of something that does a bunch of what I don’t want. Some are even just for fun, and have no real purpose, but I think I have taken most of those out because the list just got so long. Regardless, here’s the list, and I consider a few on here must-haves for playing at all anymore.
