MikScrollingBattleText (MSBT)

Designed to be an extremely lightweight, efficient, and highly configurable mod that makes it easier to see combat information by scrolling the information on the screen in separate, dynamically creatable scroll areas. It is a replacement for Blizzard's Floating Combat Text and Damage output. Plugins: WhisperNOObMSBT will put all whispers and officer chat into MSBT.
Config: /msbt

Scrolling Combat Text

Fairly simple but very configurable mod that adds damage, heals, and events (dodge, parry, windfury, etc...) as scrolling text above your character model, much like what already happens above your target. This makes it so you do not have to watch (or use) your regular combat chat window and gives it a "Final Fantasy" feel. Plugins: SCT-Damage

Rotation Advice


This add-on shows you what spell you should cast in order to maximize your damage. It displays one or more icons that shows the cooldown of an action. The action is conditionally defined through a user defined script. E.g. you may display either Corruption if the DOT is not on your target or Shadowbolt if the DOT is already on your target.

Rotation Builder

Rotation Builder allows you to build rotations dynamically without having to understand the Lua script language. The built rotation then displays the current action and the next action on your screen to tell you what to push next. Actions can be heavily customized with the General, Player, Target, and Pet tabs. The priority of actions can also be changed dynamically just by clicking the up and down arrows next to the action name in the Action list.

Misc Combat Addons


Critline is an addon that will remember your highest hits and crits (including heals and pet attacks), and display them in a fairly simple tooltip. It sports many features by default, including filtering, a standalone frame, splash on new record and more. All this can be disabled if you just want the basic functionality.

Enemy Grid

Enemy Grid creates a unit frame showing mobs around you! As a Tank:See if there are mobs not attacking you. As a Dps: Quality of Life improvement for targeting. As a Healer: See if the mob has a buff to dispel.


Displays all of your class/spec's rotational abilities on a common time scale. This means that instead of seeing a regular percentage-based timer bar, EH shows you exactly what is happening in relation to everything else. The basic idea: An ability that lasts 12 seconds and has 6 seconds remaining shouldn't look exactly the same as one that lasts 5 minutes and has 2.5 minutes remaining.

Hear Kitty

Hear Kitty plays soothing and distinct orchestral sounds as you gain and spend your combat resources.  It's like having your own theme music!  Rogues and feral druids hear tones as they gain and spend combo points, enhancement shamans hear their maelstrom weapon charges, and paladins hear their holy power build up.  When you hear the final note played, you'll know it's time for a finishing move, and you won't have to watch for red combo dots or buff stacks anymore.

RangeDisplay is a simple range display addon. It is using spell range, item range and interact-distance based checks to determine the approximate range to your current target, pet, focus or mouseover unit (if enabled). The mouseover unit display can be anchored to mouse, or placed at a fixed position.


Provides a flexible system of icons for displaying vital information about cooldowns, buffs, debuffs, and reactive abilities... always in a consistent place on your screen. You choose which spells, abilities, items, buffs, and debuffs TellMeWhen shows. The number, size, and position of icons are all customizable. Cooldown icons can be shown when an ability/item is either usable or is unusable. Buff/debuff icons can be shown when the buff/debuff is either present or is absent. Icons can be set to only show in combat. Video: YouTube
