  2. In Ashenvale, at Shrine of Aessina, there must be 2 quest givers: - Illiyana - Sentinel Melyria Frostshadow But they are not there, since at least three days ago.

    Looking for a couple of addons

    Quickloot - https://legacy-wow.com/vanilla-addons/quickloot/ I am using it for rogue pickpocket and for disenchant, as you can't use the Shift key for auto looting.

    Any have a quest annoucer?

    This is a very late reply yet.. might be useful for those asking the same question: FastQuest Classic is an addon to enhance quest log displaying, quest tracking, and notification. This is an alternative to heavy duty add-ons like MonkeyQuest, Quest-I-On, etc. https://legacy-wow.com/vanilla-addons/fastquest/ http://addons.us.to/addon/fastquest http://www.vanilla-addons.com/dls/fastquest/ You can install Extended Quest Log - https://github.com/laytya/EQL3 And then, open quest log, and while the chat is open (Enter), push Ctrl + Left Click on the quest name. It will write your quest progress

    [AddOn] idAddon

    Nice addon indeed How about this one? https://github.com/Industrial/idTweaks Is this for Vanilla or maybe for Classic Wow 1.13 ?
  6. I just tried and I could open clams while in spirit form (dead). So I would like to report this bug. Thanks

    [AddOn] ShaguPlates

    Hello Shagu, you made some great addons, thanks for them! pfQuest is really a fantastic addon! I would like make a feature request: Can you please add an option to pfQuest to show all rare mobs on the maps? I noticed it contains the rare mobs in the database. Also I would like to ask you to add the following features: - Show the XP you will get when completing the quest (at least the XP gain for the plaers having their level equal with the quest level) - Show if the quest is shareable or not, so the player knows if he/she can go to take the quest alone (and share it later to the group members) or everyone in group has to come to get the quest. Would help a lot the group management Thank you!
  8. I noticed that shirsig, the developer of the aux, crafty and Mail addons is/was posting on this forum - https://forum.elysium-project.org/topic/23657-addon-aux-and-more/ My question is if other addon developers are active here, in case I need to submit a bug report or a feature request. Thank you
  9. Hello, For TBC I've found the Chatter addon that changes the background color of the chatbox, from transparent to black It hurts my eyes really badly to read chat sometimes, as the color of the text chat is light, and the background is most of the time light (except in Duskwood and other few places) It should be very easy to do it but I have no idea how to make an addon for a simple task like that. Does anyone know any Vanilla WoW addon that can change the background color of the chat box? Thank you
  10. BlazeFury

    Addon to change chat box background color

    Meanwhile I found the background can be changed, transparency from 100% down to 0% so everything is fine

    GitHub TBC Addons

    This forum already has a list of Vanilla addons that are hosted on GitHub or GitLab - and many of them are still being developed. Does anyone know any TBC addon that is hosted on GitHub or on GitLab? I think it would be nice to have a list with such addons. I've already found a few such addons, I hope to find more: Aux - Auction House addOn - https://github.com/shirsig/aux-addon-TBC Bagnon - bag replacement addon - https://github.com/UndercityAddons-TBC/Bagnon Bartender4 - a full ActionBar replacement mod - https://github.com/UndercityAddons-TBC/Bartender4 Chronometer - tracks spell effects (HoTs, DoTs, buffs, debuffs, etc.) that you cast - https://github.com/Monteo/Chronometer DPSMateTBC - combat analyzation tool - https://github.com/Geigerkind/DPSMateTBC ElvUI - a full UI replacement - https://github.com/ElvUI-TBC/ElvUI Gladdy - arena enemy unit frames - https://miraage.io/gladdy/ Gatherer - tracks the closest plants, deposits and treasure locations on your minimap - https://github.com/UndercityAddons-TBC/Gatherer ModifiedPowerAurasTBC - an advanced wow 2.4.3 power auras - https://github.com/Geigerkind/ModifiedPowerAurasTBC NiceBubbles - styles the chat bubbles appearing in the game world to be smaller, less intrusive, and not so much in the way of what is happening on the screen - https://github.com/cogwerkz/NiceBubbles OneBag3 - combines all of your bags into one frame - https://github.com/UndercityAddons-TBC/OneBag3 Prat - Additional chat window configuration and settings - https://github.com/UndercityAddons-TBC/Prat SamuelTBC - Simple and light Swing timer addon - https://github.com/Terrub/SamuelTBC ShestakUI - User Interface backport - https://github.com/EsWoW/ShestakUI SyncedUI - TBC - An addon compilation and custom ElvUI profile for TBC clients - https://github.com/vashin1/SyncedUI-TBC VuhDo - aid monitor similar to CTRaidAssist or Blizzards built-in raid frames - https://github.com/UndercityAddons-TBC/VuhDo Addon listss: - https://github.com/UndercityAddons-TBC - https://github.com/oppahansi/WoW-UIs/tree/master/Tbc
  12. When the WoW Classic will be launched, do you expect the players to leave in order to play retail WoW Classic? I think the effect will be the opposite: the launch of WoW Classic will attract a lot of attention and interest from the players, too many of them still don't know what Vanilla WoW is, so they will try to experience a private server too. I suggest the admins to prepare one or two more realms, just in case. Without investing too much energy in it, of course. Because nobody knows the effects of the WoW Classic launch on the private servers

    Update on server issue?

    I did that. It doesn't work. I still get lots of disconnects. The situation is unbearable anymore. Sorry.
  14. BlazeFury

    Update on server issue?

    The server issue is real. Since a week ago, I play on another server and I never have this problem. On Elysium, too many times, you get disconnected right after entering the world, which is extremely annoying. I play on other servers with the same WoW clients (one for the regular account and the other one for the bank alt account), with the same addons. When playing on Elysium, I deleted the WDB and WTF folders and it still acts the same. It also disconnects when not using any addon. I know that simply maintaining a server implies a lot of hard work. Elysium is a well maintained server. But this disconnect issue make it pretty much unplayable for people like me. You wait a lot for the loading screen, and when the blue loading bar is at the end, you wait and wait and wait and then you get disconnected. I will come back to play on this server in the future. I really hope that meanwhile you will solve this issue. Best wishes!

    Update on server issue?

    There was a server restart some 10 minutes after my message and after the restart I asked the people in the world chat, they had the same problem too. I hope you keep a log of the world chat, you can check what I said by taking a look at it (search for "disconnect"). I don't know why they didn't reported it but they had this problem too. Today I played less but it looks like the server is in much better shape. I will delete my WDB and WTF folders right now.

    Update on server issue?

    I am getting a lot of disconnects right now, I disabled all the addons, I am getting disconnected every 5 minutes or so, the server is almost unplayable for me anymore.
  17. Yes, thanks, I knew that, that's where I got the sample "bindings-cache.wtf" file. But it's in a cryptic form, it contains lines like this: bind H TOGGLECHARACTER4 which are unintelligible for the user. the files I presented above contain lines like this Toggle Honor Pane "H" Not Bound TOGGLECHARACTER4
  18. I was looking for a list of the default HotKeys in WoW and I could not find any. So I compiled such a list, for Vanilla WoW (version 1.12.1) - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/#hotkeys.html - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/hotkeys.html - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings.xls .TXT Files: - The default Key Bindings in Vanilla WoW - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings.txt - The version without the Blizzard ID column - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings-noblizzid.txt - This is the two column version - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings-2column.txt - The version that is sorted by hotkey - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings-sorted.txt - Sorted by hotkey and without the Blizzard ID column (probably most useful for most of the people) - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings-sorted-noblizzid.txt Also, the default bindings-cache.wtf file: - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/samples/bindings-cache.wtf I'm quite sure I'm not the only one looking for a searchable list of WoW keyboard shortcuts so I hope this helps

    List of Bugs

    Thanks, I've filled this bug report a few days ago and it was wrongly closed (by Ziggy-QA ). How can I tell the developers to check it again? 2019-01-29 - Meeting stones don't work - https://github.com/elysium-project/classic-bug-tracker/issues/1060 I was not asking to implement summoning. But I was asking to make them work, like it worked on Blizzard's Vanilla WoW in 2006. They also work on other Vanilla Servers: The meeting stones allow you to click on them. Also, when you hover the mouse above them, they tell you the dungeon name and the dungeon level When you click on the meeting stone, it will put you on a queue. When there are other players doing the same, it will automatically put you in a group with those players. That's all Anyone can check the above statements, simply by logging into any other Blizzlike server No summoning. I wasn't asking for summoning How can I re-open the bug report?

    An addon like WoW-AutoGratzer?

    Meanwhile I've found: Autograts - Sends “Grats” when someone “Dings” - https://legacy-wow.com/vanilla-addons/autograts/ AutoDing - Dings automatically to whatever channel - https://legacy-wow.com/vanilla-addons/autoding/
  22. Hello, I tried WoW-AutoGratzer (from GitLab) and it doesn't work for me. I get this error: Interface\AddOns\AutoGratzer\Autogratzer.lua:2: attempt to index local 'self' (a nil value) Is there any other addon like WoW-AutoGratzer? One that works, if possible. By the way, I noticed that WoW-AutoGratzer is not included in the list of GitHub AddOns - https://forum.elysium-project.org/topic/40535-github-vanilla-addons/
  23. Sometimes I find screenshots and I see there minimap buttons for various addons. I am always interested to find more useful addons so I'm intrigued by those icons. I think it would be nice to have an index of minimap icons for the WoW addons in general and for the Vanilla addons in particular. If you are interested in something like this, then please add in this thread. I find this stuff quite useful. Something like this: For example in this image, I don't know the addons for the icons 2, 3, 4, 7 and 8. Does anyone know what addons are they for? Thanks Later edit: updated screenshot
  24. BlazeFury

    Minimap icons of the addons

    Thanks for all the replies, I've updated the icons list according to the above answers Yet I can't find an addon named "CoolDown", the github vanilla addons list contains CooldownTimers but that addon doesn't have an icon.
