Let us remind you that addons are interface modifications that make the WoW game more convenient. Addons can perform various functions. Depending on these functions, we have divided all addons into categories. This guide contains the most important addons as well as the niche addons for specific classes and professions.

How to Install WoW addons

To install the addon, just download it from the website and unpack it into the folder “Folder with the game \Interface\ Addons”. Or you may use specific programs, that download, unpack and update addons automatically, for example, Curseforge.

After that, go into the game and click the “Modifications” button in the character selection window. A list of all the addons you have installed will appear. In this window, you can turn on and off the addons you need.

Remember that addons create an additional load on your computer, so if you have a weak computer, we do not advise you to install a large number of addons at once. Try to limit yourself to the most necessary (DBM, Recount, etc.).

In addition, some addons may conflict with each other, especially if they are designed for the same functions.
