    Default Addons when Multiboxing discussion

    Hey Everyone,

    I want to talk some Classic addons. EMA is a no brainer but what other great quality of life addons are out there that can really help multiboxers.

    I did a video on it here but this is a topic where there is a lot out there and I am looking to know if people have any real hidden gems.

    I was actually thinking of starting a thread like this and keeping the initial 1st post at the top of the thread updated with the consensus of addons recommended for boxers in the thread. I was planning on keeping a list & putting them in groups/categories like "Must have", "Frequently recommended", "Infrequently recommended", etc. It would be great if this thread could result in something like that.

    I assume Curse is the best way to manage addons but if that isn't the case and/or there are other good options maybe list that at the top as well.

    1) Is there any different setup to point ISBoxer to be able to log in characters to Classic?
    2) Where do we get Classic Addons? I use the twitch installer for retail, is there somewhere else to get them for Classic?
    2) Do we have to do anything special when setting up addons for Classic? Ie, do we need to install them in a different place?
    3) Will all my retail addons show up in the Classic in game addon list? Do I need to switch these back and forth constantly to make sure I have the correct addons installed?

    1. The mirai video has a good explanation on this one. In general no, just tell it the game you are playing is world of warcraft and to use Classic when adding the character to team.
    2. Classic addons I found at the curseforge website and in the search one of the drop down options for version is WoW Classic.
    2. They get installed in _classic_ instead of _retail_ so the installation is separate.
    3. Addons in _retail_ won't show up in classic.

    I manually installed everything but I imagine within a few days the addon managers will catch up if they haven't already to be able to manage 2 profiles of wow.

    Great video. I think there really is a niche for a youtube content provider specific to multiboxing. I think it will become very big in WoW when players realize that they will clear all content very quickly and guilds will start split raiding. Plus the hardware demands are so light that multiboxing doesn't take much.

    Here's my list of addons:
    Atlas Classic: For loot, etc
    Classic Aura Duration: So I know when to reapply rend, dots, debuffs, etc
    Classic Cast Bars: So I can set my round robbin interrupt and catch NPC casts
    Classic Codex: Best Questing Addon
    DBM: Boss stuff
    EZJunk: sells junk auto
    Leatrix Plus: Speeds up looting and accepting/handing in quests
    OneBag3: Giant Bag
    Vendorprice: gives vendor prices
    OmniCC: Cooldown counter
    QuestlogEx: Extended Quest log, because the Classic one is awful
    Classic spell activation: Lights up reactive spells like overpower
    Corduroy: Coordinates for mouse on map and character
    speedrunsplits: Gives level times
    Clique: For healing through VFX and buffing

    The thing I really like about Vuhdo is that you can setup Bouquets and assign them to some indicator.

    Then you can write a list of CC that you can dispel and put them as one color. So if you see someone has that color then you must dispel them right away.

    For melee teams it would be great to put effects like Entanging Roots and Frost Nova to be 2nd highest priority so you can counter enemies kiting your melee.
    For casters it can be great to put Silence effects to show well so you can quickly dispel them.

    Then put dangerous debuffs that is good to dispel as another color with lower priority, so you know that it is good if you dispel those.

    Then you can also put effects that disable the character to show in some way that allows you to instantly see "ok, my healer is stunned/incapacited so it won't be able to heal now".

    I think it gives really good information that helps making fast decisions.

    Get "Better Vendor Price" it's.... better :-) {better as in it gives you stacking and full stack vs current stack vs unit price information}

    I commented on youtube will repeat here, don't get your addons from manually maintained site, their info is stale, get them from twitch app/curseforge or
    https://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/cat160.html

    Obviously you probably want to add EMA-Classic and DynamicBoxer to the list

    here are my addons so far for classic:
    AdvancedInterfaceOptions
    AuctionDB
    aux-addon
    BetterVendorPrice
    BugSack
    DynamicBoxer
    EMA-Classic
    ISBoxer
    PixelPerfectAlign
    WhoTracker
    WowLua (for development)
    5,8 boxing wow with DynamicBoxer for isboxer, give it a try!
    (was 8 Boxing Wow with HotKeyNet)
    Join many boxers playing Classic on US PvP Alliance: <Epic>@Blaumeux
    Streaming on twitch.tv/MooreaTv

    On the top right side in twitch - you can change from retail to classic

    The only one I have experience with is Questie. It worked well during stress test. https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/questie/files

    The release version just came out 4 hours ago apparently.
