While I’m not the uber-mod person like some of my friends, I have a few I’ve discovered that I like.
1. Cartographer – There was one thing missing from basic default WoW. Map coordinates. I can read a map. I can read a map well. But I would get halfway across the region only to find out I ran the wrong way.This was the first addon I wanted.
2. Auctioneer – This was my second addon. Lethann uses it. Mainly she uses it for the Auto Vend feature, but I was selling quite a bit on the auction house and was manually tracking it. It takes a bit of time to set it up and longer to learn to work it, but if you Auction frequently this is something you need. And I’ve made a bit of gold on the auction house. I’m so low leveled right now I just have gathering professions. But it shows you thing in colors Red for selling high. Yellow for good markup. Green for average price. Blue for really underpriced. Now I’m not really buying off the auction house. I’m just selling, but if an herb I have is mostly blue I’ll hang on to it for 2-3 days until the prices on them start climbing. Also I’m using it for items that I find in my travels. Who knew that you needed the crispy spider legs for cooking? Well Auctioneer will tell me that when I hover over an item. Also it will tell me the price a vendor will pay for an item. If I’m questing and I can’t use either item that is offered as a quest reward and they are Soulbound, I can see what a vendor will pay for the item. That way I can take the quest reward that brings the highest return from the vendors. Yes it may be just a few copper, but a few copper is a few copper.
3. TomTomFu – Little GPS like arrow. It shows you where you need to go.
