Here you will find a list of user-friendly guides that will walk you through some of the more popular add-ons in WoW and how to go about setting them up, figuring out what each option does, and how you can configure them to your liking. This will be a continual work in progress, so please bear with me as I work on them and get them up and rolling! For the mean time, this is what I have that is ready to go. You will find the add-ons listed alphabetically with an introductory blurb about what they do and where you can download them. Simply click on the add-on’s name (the “title”) to be taken to where you can read the rest of the entry.
Many a player have either heard of or used Clique at one point or another in this game. Used mainly by — but not limited to — healers, this add-on enables you to set multiple spells, attacks and abilities to your mouse clicks in combination with modifier keys. Those of you wishing to explore a new avenue of spell casting, wanting to become more efficient with your time while healing, or just looking for more “macro-y types of things” to add your attacks to, this is an excellent option. Here, I will go through in detail the process of binding spells and attacks, along with the many other features that Clique has to offer. This is downloadable at curse.com: Clique
Decursive: An add-on that allows the user to remove curses from a friendly target. Right? Wrong! … kind of. The most wonderful thing about Decursive is that you don’t have to be either a Shaman, a Mage, or a Druid to make use of it. Aside from removing curses, you can also use it to cleanse magic effects and charms, abolish diseases, and put the snafu on poisons. Highly effective in both PvE and PvP play, Decursive allows for quick and efficient removal of the curable ailments that plague our fellow comrades in battle. This add-on can be downloaded here: Decursive.
Grid is another one of those add-ons that is mainly utilized by healers (in conjuction with Clique), but has its uses apart from this. The thing I like most about this particular add-on is how minimalistic it appears to be. That’s not to say that it provides minimal information, because that is certainly not the case, but rather the way it displays the information is drastically simplified from how it would otherwise appear on the Blizzard UI. Grid, in essence, aims to break down the unit frames that you see on a regular basis — whether it’s while in a 5 man dungeon, a 10 or 25 man raid, or even solo play — into something that is more compact and easier to digest with the human eye, all the while not leaving out the important stuff, like debuffs and aggro.
