After a short break I’m going to get back into WoW, and after all the patches; some of my mods needed to be replaced and updated. This made me think about what mods do I use every day, and which ones are vanity or just junky.
My final criteria was: Which mods should be in the default interface shipped with the game?
Here is my list:
CharBar – Add chat channel buttons to the rant area.
a Frame mod – of some sort. X-Perl is the one I’m using now, and having the capacity to change the look is excellent.
a Positioning mod – Bongos is my favoutite now, but any move it mod is a must have.
a Info bar mod – such as FuBar. Titan is another option, and I recently moved from Titan to FuBar due to the Ace support and a better selection of mods.
Atlas – They could charge for Atlas and I’d almost pay.
Ace and Ace2 – The best supported set of mod libraries. Even has an auto-updater for any mod written properly in it, so you don’t have to manually do all the checking and updating. Gold!
Banzai Alert! – tells you when you’ve got aggro. Most of my toons are in trouble when they get aggro, so a red flashing border is very useful. Makes it hard to ignore, and will train me not to do it.
ps. You can Google these, as giving out URLs will often result in all sorts of out of date stuff in the mod community.
