Fresh Brew: Addons That Optimize Your Levelling, Take You Down Memory Lane And Turn Your Enchanter Into A Moneybags

There are an enormous number of WoW addons that pop up every single day, and of them, only a few make it to everyone’s attention. And that means a whole load of potentially useful addons that just don’t make it to the bigtime. Sounds like a job for MMO Melting Pot…

Yesterday I went on a trek through WoW interface’s list of new and updated addons to find the hottest ones. Or at least the warmish ones that are great ideas but don’t really get out much. I found so many that I split them into two posts with the first yesterday.

These ‘ere are the rest of the fresh brew, hope you enjoy them.

  • Gaintracker – tracks your XP and gold gained and how long it took to get them. The sweet part is that Gaintracker can use that data to tell you the optimum place to gain XP. Levelling an alt before dinner? It’ll help you get the most experience out of your hour.
  • Revelation – not new, but updated. Revelation lets you use professions quickly by telling you at a glance all the profession skills you can use right now with the materials you have in the inventory. It supports all profession skills including lockpicking and disenchanting.
  • Scroll master – scans the auction house for scroll and material prices and keeps track of market prices. It works alone or integrates with other auction house addons like auctioneer. It also helps you create multiple scrolls by tallying the materials you need. This looks like a great addon for any enchanter with materials coming out of their ears and mothballs filling their purse.
  • Bosstalk – this isn’t a new addon but it’s been updated for Cataclysm. I just had to feature it because a library of soundfile quotes from bosses is awesome. Missing your guild’s in joke about Lady Deathwhisper’s voice acting or worried that Cata will remove some classic lines? Get your nostalgia here.

So that was a mixture of something old, something new, and something not so much blue but full of maniacal laughter. What could be better?!

But have I missed anything – any completely new addons of never-seen-before? Or do you know of something coming soon and would like to tip us off? Either which way, give us a shout!
