Minor one: Actionbarcolor. Paints the whole hotbar-button red instead of just the number which represents the action. It's just so easy to see if a target is in range or line of sight. Major one: CleanUnitFrames (though I'm waiting for a proper version of Streamlined UnitFrames) Just nice and clean unit frames..

Go to www.curse.com, install their client, then pick (note, I'm doing this from memory, so may get some numbers wrong): zMailMod - great for bulk mail transfers Squares - particularly for healers, this is a must-have - simply puts some green squares up on your screen, they show health and give a handy clickable target for everyone in your warband. This is indispensable for my shammy. AuctionStats - because every MMO needs one, apparently - adds cost info to hover windows from scan of auction house. TomeTitan - help you find where all the shinies are :) RealmStatus - an absolute must-have regardless of who you are, this gives you /rs to find the current victory points for all realms, and puts numbers on your realm status bar top right. oRVR goodness. TargetInfoWindows - this one needs some tweaking, once it's installed go to the window layout tool in War and move the windows it adds from top-left to the centre top of the screen for visibility. This will tell you what it knows about an enemy when you target them - great for getting a large warning when you tab onto a healer. It apparently learns only in scenarios, so you may not get immediate or complete targetting info - but when you do, it's great ;) Those are probably the highlights, but check in the curses client for a huge list of mods. Note, if you're running windowed, you can flick to the curses client, install a new mod, and then /reloadui in your war window and they'll come online - ditto in reverse for removing, so no relaunching to try things out.

Ah I remember that cavern in badlands aswell. Somehow I managed to make my way down without dying and was able to finish my quests, but it was very hard

I have alot so many in fact I am not sure why I have them. I have requested that Curse add a way to export the names at least to help out guildies since many of them are not computer savvy. Some mods should be mandatory ..they fix in game issues. Mythic has stated that they support mods (open source) because anything a mod can do anyone can do; its built into the interface. 1) get the curse client http://www.curse.com/client/ it will allow you to see only warhammer mods and has a autoupdate feature so you set it and forget it mostly. a)download all the LIB pieces almost every mod relies on them. 2)Chat Alert! sound notification when you get a guild, warband chat, or tell 3)Autodismount self explainatory 4)Scenario Alert audio sound when a scenario has popped ...great when i am watching my kids. 5)Chatterer puts tells, guild, warband chat in bold and scrolls overhead ..you cant miss chat again. 6)BlackBox and ovdeadnomore removes the stuck respawning bar and makes it more like a casting bar 7) TargetRing adds a above ground ring on your target instead of ground hard to see ring 8) Warboard this is the best mod I have seen hands down ...it and its corresponding plug ins have made the interface much more clear. I will be doing a write up on my site too. Amazing how many really talented people are writing mods out there.

I never understood why some people say mods are cheating, or not playing the way intended, etc. If you were not expected to use them, they would not be supported my Mythic. Personally i think there area couple mods I could not play without. Some things you'd think are would already be there, but are not... yet. "LibSlash" is required for 95% of other mods, It adds slash command functionality. "UIMenuEnabler" adds a button to the 'ESC' menu so you can turn on/off mods from within the game. "TargetOnButtonDown" I don't know if this has been fixed by Mythic yet, but have you noticed that when targeting a PC with the mouse, you don't change targets until you let go of the mouse. Nothing to set up, nothing visual to get in the way, simple, easy fix. HUGE improvement. If you only get one mod, this is the one. "AlertMaster" its supposed to get rid of alert spam, its not too good at that. Its pretty low rated as well, but I like it just cause it also makes those alerts in a smaller font but still easily readable. "SpamMeNot" stops about 80% of spam whispers. Its even recommended by Mythic themselves. "CleanUnitFrames" gets rid of a lot of flowery crap around things like the group windows. Saves a lot of real estate for actually seeing the game (or more mods!) There are a ton of other good ones, like Squared, Vertigo, AssHat, DeadTargetLock, Waaghbar, TomeTracker, as well. Except they, and others are more up to you. There used to be many more I refused to play without, but Mythic has done a good job of incorporating them into the default UI fast. So don't be surprised if you see a lot of high rated mods while browsing that do things that are already in the game. Also, as a side note, I suggest you make sure and get you mods from a reputable site like www.curse.com. In WoW, some mods were beleived to be part of the account hacking problems.

Warhammer Scrolling Combat Text: I never saw the need for anything like this and poopooed the idea. Something convinced me to give it a go though and now I'm a believer. It gives me the information I need right where I can see it with ease. Squared: This is supposedly essential for healers. I use it on my zealot alt and it's incredibly useful. It's a grid of squares that are health meters for everyone in your warband/scenario. Click the square to target the needy. Just for fun try Little Black Book. It's a bit quirky but it keeps track of who killed you, and who you got revenge by killing in return.

I think 2 of my favorites are the RVR stats tab, really something I'd have assumed would have been included. As a compliment to that, Little Black Book. It's great to see a Vengance kill popup, especially for the squishier of us.
