Interface

Having a clean UI is key, something where you can easily track your DoTs on multiple targets. Your UI usually comes down to personal preference so don’t just copy a UI, make sure you meet your own requirements and be able to modify it if you need to.

Recommended Addons:

High Priority Addons

  • Weak Auras - Almost a mandatory AddOn nowadays and can be used for anything like tracking CDs, dots, etc.
  • BigWigs & LittleWigs - Great and irreplaceable tool to track timers during boss fights. It's almost a mandatory AddOn if you want to play on a relatively high level
  • Plater - AddOn for your nameplates. Default ones are horrible, especially for multi-dot classes. Plater has a wide range of customization, so you can set it up however you like or yoink someone else's setup

Recommended Addons

  • Shadowed Unit Frames - This allows you to customize your personal, target, party, raid frames, and other things.
  • Bartender4 - For those who aren’t satisfied with default Blizzard bars
  • AdiBags - Personally, my favorite AddOn for bags
  • Details - So you can see yourself doing big damage
  • Method Raid Tools - If you want to go hard in raiding, this AddOn is also irreplaceable. It has important things like raid notes, which allows you to track various CDs. It also has other cool features
  • Mythic Dungeon Tools - If you want to go hard in m+. Excellent AddOn that allows you to plan your routes in dungeons and learn them overall
  • OmniCD - Helps you to track CDs of your teammates in dungeons. Better awareness - better player :)

Weakauras

Most of weakauras are just personal preferences so you better look for them on your own on wago.io.

My personal Warlock WA pack - coming soon :)

Getting a soulstone Weak Aura will also be a good idea, so you don't forget and have the whole raid flaming you. (https://wago.io/rMSVf8ShS) It will tell you when there are no healers with a soulstone on.
