About Quartz

Quartz is a modular approach to a casting bar addon. An overview of (hopefully most of) the modules:


The core of Quartz is lightweight implementation of a standard casting bar, with configurable size, text and icon positioning, and colors.


Implementation of target and focus casting bars in similar fashion to the player cast bar.


Display of target and focus buffs and debuffs as duration bars using the new API introduced in patch 2.1.


Hooks into FlightMap or InFlight to display the current flight progress on your casting bar.

*Global Cooldown

Displays a tiny spark-bar to show your Global Cooldown near the cast bar. Helpful for those who'd rather not squint at their action bars to see when they can cast again.


Changes the color and text of your casting bar to help show that your cast has been interrupted (and show who interrupted it).


Displays the amount of time spent between cast send and start events, in the form of a bar at the end of your casting bar, with optional text that displays the actual duration of the lag. This helps in canceling casts when they will not actually be interrupted, especially for users with consistently high pings.


Shows the 'basic' timers such as breath and feign death, as well as some 'odd' ones such as party invite time, resurrect timeout, and arena game start, and a framework for injecting custom timers into the bars.


Recolors the casting bar when your cast target moves out of range mid-cast.


Displays a swing timer for your melee weapon as well as hunter autoshot.


Allows for creating custom timers displayed on the mirror bars.

*Tradeskill Merge

Merges multiple casts of the same tradeskill item into one big cast bar.

Use /quartz to bring up the configuration menu.

  • #2150

  • #2149

    hey guys i have a problem with my quartz.

    Always if i cast a spell to fast or i cast sometimes normally i have this bug.

    Please for help!

  • #2148

    Hey guys-

    Is there a way to turn my WoW buffs back on - the buffs that are usually in the top right corner? I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to get the regular Blizzard buffs back up on the right hand side. I've tried disabling buffs through Quartz all together and that doesn't help.


  • #2147


    can anyone tell me where i can change the Ticks from the channelingBar?

    At my Priest the Mindfly has 4 Ticks but the Cast bar shows only 3 Ticks

  • #2146

    I don't know if I'm to stupid or anything else but I have a question.

    When I cast "Wind Shear" on an Enemy with my enhancer Shaman, a Bar pops Up, which is telling me, how long my enemy is silenced. How do I move this bar?

  • #2143

    Any chance of getting a system to automatically change profiles based on dungeon role? I have to move my cast bar to stop it from being covered by my raid frames when I'm healing, and it's a bit of a pain.

  • #2140

    Without going through all the posts, is there possibly a brief answer to the following:

    Is there no way to hide the default ui target frame cast bar in quartz?

    Edit: Nevermind, I'm a total dunce and just realized that's builtin.

    Not working as intended

    1 - I can only see my spells on the quasrtz bar is when I press F1. When I am fighting mobs or doing anything else, it would be nice to see my quartz bars without pressing F1 everytime.

    2 - I cannot make my quartz bars larger. When I use the Scale button, it moves my quartz bars from the middle to the lower left of my screen. When use the Width button, it moves my quartz bas from the middle to the right of my screen.

    3 - When casting a spell, I noticed that the cast bar is basically just a very thin line with a dot moving across the line. I am not sure if this is what it is supposed to look like?

    I disabled all add-on and reset my interface just to make sure and the same issues are still occurring.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

  • #2138

    I'm very surprised that this addon doesn't allow vertical castbars, unless I've missed something? Only reason I use Gnosis.
