How does those addons interfere with your goal? I would think the opposite if I haven't missed anything.
Because it's literally kill the only satisfaction of this goal. You always know what to do and where to go and exploration isn't needed.
Fair enough.

What i would like the Blizz to do is, disable the AddOns like Questie or whatever that points you to where you need go and stuff at launch, maybe after a month or two they can enable it. Yes it is nice to soak up all the quests and lore in (which i did in vanilla) but after your first "playthrough" leveling an alt is much better with those said AddOns.

Don't get me wrong, im not disagreeing with you. I think everyone should experience those good old times at least once.

Thing is - with Questie specifically, it allows you to turn off features you don't want. So the people who want that experience can have it even if they have Questie installed.

Yes but, if it is there, people will use it :) And thats ok, i don't mind people using a questing AddOn, i was just saying that the enjoyment they will get out of the leveling experience will decrease.

Then again, some people might find being pointed to where they need to go and do much more fun, Im ok either way as long as AddOns like LFG or Dungeon.io don't exist. Questing AddOns are affecting only the users, but the other AddOns are affecting the whole community.

It's pointless, people just will spend all time alt-tabing to WoWHead.

Yeah, I think people should be able to do whatever they want to do - as long as it's not breaking the game for other players. An RPG is about your own choices either way, right? :biggrin:

Just curious, is there any information on how we can contribute to helping make add-ons work? I used to love tinkering with all my homebrew macros back in Vanilla, I'd be curious to get into some more of the actual add-on development now that I have a bit more experience with scripting.

All,

I've been following some posts about Addons, and used the stress test as an opportunity to test some out. I was met with a HUGE pile of LUA errors for Addons that were supposedly "ready for classic"

What addons are you folks in the full beta using, and where are you getting them from?

Thanks!

I disagree completely. Who are you to say how people should play? Blizzard should not be moderating Addons unless they are breaking the TOS. End of story. If you don't like an addon, don't use it.

And now you're telling someone else how they should play.

Some AddOns go too far and completely ruin the way the game should feel - AddOns such as DBM, Raider.io, OmniBar etc. It's up to Blizzard to protect their IP and decide what is healthy for it, I'd wager these are not. It's just unfortunate that Blizzard cares for the casual$ coming in rather than giving people an enjoyable experience.

Way to read into something that's not there. There is a difference between forcing other people to not use certain addons and choosing not to use them.

Who would be the WoW Addon Police, you? Blizzard would not go down the road of having to pre-approve and moderate addons. If people want to use addons, let them. If people don't want to use addons, let them. Who cares. But don't decide for them.

Blizzard wont monitor individual addons, but if they see that part of the API is allowing addons to automate too much of the game, I would say they would alter/lockdown parts of the API to restrict addon functionality. They wouldn't want to approve or micromanage the addons at al..

The problem is the most unhealthy addons are simple information addons.

Boss ability timers, telling you what they do, what you should do etc. It completely ruins the game, you don't play yourself anymore you just do what the big warning tells you to do.

And the worst part is there's absolutely no reason NOT to take the addon.

Unhealthy.

Hey everyone,
I was wondering if there is any information about what addons are going to be usable during wow classic. I can't even remotely remember what I used back in the day, but I know I used a decent number. I remember one that added whether/what quest an item was used in to the tooltip for all items in your inventory.

I'm going to go completely unmodded at first, for maximum nostalgia, but I plan to eventually mod just as heavily as I did in retail.
WoW's fully customizable UI is one of it's best features, IMO.

I really enjoy tinkering with WeakAuras and I ended up creating several alts for no other reason than I thought it would be fun to try and design a UI for their specs.

The main mods I'm hoping will be available on Classic are:
WeakAuras
Bartender
Pitbull
Arkinventory
Any DPS meter
Any Minimap customisation mod
