World of Warcraft - Warlock Addon Guide
World of Warcraft Warlock Addons – KLH Threatmeter
One of the biggest problems of warlocks when it comes to instancing and raiding is maxing out damage while also avoiding an aggro pull from the tank that could cost a wipe. With KLH Threatmeter, you’ll be able to do just enough DPS to stay below the aggro pull limit. It does take a little getting used, but after a few instances you should get the hang of it. The KLH Threatmeter is often a must-have if you’re part of a raiding guild.
World of Warcraft Warlock Addons – Warlock Multi-Pet Skills
Managing your pet’s abilities is sometimes cumbersome and this mod, based on the Warlock Keybindings one, allows you to use single buttons for pet skills, such as the Imp’s Fire Shield, the Voidwalker’s Sacrifice or Suffering, the Felhunter’s Devour or Spell Lock, Succubus Seduction or Felguard Intercept. Worth checking out if you have trouble micro-managing your pet manually.
World of Warcraft Warlock Addons – Necrosis
Necrosis is an all-useful Warlock mod that keeps track of your shards, stones, reagents, summons and so forth. It offers some comfy buttons to create summoned and conjured stuff, timers for spell cooldowns and for DoTs. Other functionalities include a voice alert to tell you when your Soulstone is about to lose its cooldown, or an indication for Shadow Trance states. Pretty much an all-round useful mod that can be used in raids, during leveling, grinding and PVP.
World of Warcraft Warlock Addons – Warlock Macros
This little addon is actually a Warlock macro compilation, but with a little twist. Remember how you had a full list of macros and then had to reinstall WoW and all were lost? Well this addon automatically creates the most useful Warlock macros (such as fear on mouseover, buff macros, healthstone/soulstone macros and so forth) and updates them when you learn a new spell. Basically, it will make your life easier in many aspects of the game and although you won’t use all of them, you will find some are quite indispensable.
World of Warcraft Warlock Addons – LyLock
Lylock is a useful all-in-one warlock mod that shows you countdowns on spells, notifies you when a buff or soulstone expires and has enchanted options for summoning. One of the most useful things that Lylock brings is an automatic sort of Soul Shards into bags, useful for people who always have a mess in their bags (ergo, the majority of us).
World of Warcraft Warlock Addons – UberBanish
UberBanish comes in as a very useful Warlock addon in PVE raids. In specific situations, a fight’s success will depend on the ability of the lock to keep a target banished and this mod allows you to do that to perfection. It informs you and the rest of the group on how much more time the banish will be up and it will inform another warlock in the raid or party to take up your target if you have a banish on and die. In addition, if your Banish breaks, the addon will inform you with a sound alert and a message that it broke. If you click on this message, you will automatically re-banish your target.
World of Warcraft Warlock Addons – Pet Leash
One of the biggest nuisances of your pet is his well…stupidity. By default, pets are stupid, but with a little help from this mod, they’ll be ok. Pet Leash keeps your pet from chasing and attacking targets that are crowd controlled, avoiding the risk that your pet breaks the CC and wipes the party. When a target has a crowd control debuff on (fear, polymorph, etc) this addon will automatically detect it and will give your pet a follow command.
World of Warcraft Warlock Addons – Grimoire Keeper
Everyone who leveled a warlock probably spew a few curses at that Demon Trainer. That guy is a con artist, I swear. I bought the same Grimoire for my Succubus three times, cause I was too lazy to summon her and see whether or not the spell I was buying was already in her cookbook or not. Well this addon will help us out with that issue, since it keeps track of all grimoires you learned for each of your pets. So no more mindless summons in the basement near the demon trainer to see what spells you still need and definitely no more extra-gold spent on double-grimoires.
World of Warcraft Warlock Addons – DoTimer
With DoTs being a good part of a warlock’s offensive arsenal, their management is crucial, especially in raids. DoTimer is the most complex DoT addon up to date and it features DoT tracking, smart timer removal, DoT separation by target and a customizable interface. It’s easily one of the most popular Warlock mods out there and once you get used to it you’ll be able to use your Damage over Time spells to their maximum effect.
World of Warcraft Warlock Addons – Spell Watch
This is not a Warlock only mod, as it is useful for any caster class that wants to know how his spells are doing. Spell Watch basically creates bars with all your currently cast spells, allowing you to see what’s still on and how much of it is left. The visual bars are very helpful as you don’t have the time to focus on the number countdowns in intense raid or PVP conditions.
