About Altoholic

Hi, my name is Thaoky, and I'm an Altoholic :)

Altoholic is an Ace 3 addon written for people who dedicate most of their time to leveling alts, and who want to have as much information as possible in one addon. The main feature of the addon is the search functionality which allows users to search their alts' bags or loot tables in an Auction-House-like frame (see screenshots). All this with multiple-realms/accounts support.

About the addon & the author

I've been playing WoW since the European release, and I used to rely on addons like character viewer to check my alts' inventory, but since it was more or less abandoned and not always stable for me, I decided to write an addon myself and to improve the search feature as much as I could. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do :)

The addon has been in development since December 2007 and was officially released in late March 2008. It's still not final, and although it has considerably evolved since the initial release, there are still a lot of things I haven't had time to implement yet.
Please note that this is my first addon, and that English is not my native language.


- Languages supported: enUS, frFR, deDE, esES, ruRU, zhCN & zhTW.

- Account-wide data summary:

  • Characters' talents: Full talent trees & glyphs are supported for both specializations.
  • Money, /played, rest xp for each character, subtotals by realm, and grandtotals for the account.
  • Bag usage: see at a glance which characters should get bigger bags (bag size, free slots and types included)
  • Characters' skills: skill summary on one screen, namely the 2 main professions + the 3 secondary skills as well as riding. I may add more if there's demand.
  • Reputations: a list of all the reputations of the current realm's characters. You can see at a glance if all your alts are at least honored with Honor Hold if you want to get the new 2.4 blue PVP set. Suggestions on how to grind reputations will be available soon.

- View containers (bags, bank, keyring) of all alts, on all realms.

- Guild banks : You have 10 alts in 10 different guilds on the same server, all of them with access to a guild bank ? Not a problem, you can see them all here.

- E-mail: allows you to see which alts have mail without having to reconnect them. The addon will tell you when mail is about to expire on a character. Threshold configurable (up to 15 days). Multiple realm support as well. Mails sent to a known alt (one you've logged on at least once) will be visible in the addon without having to reconnect it.

- Equipment: See the equipment of the current realm's alts in one screen. Very useful when purchasing stuff for your alts at the AH. Multiple realms supported. Right-clicking any equipment piece will allow you to find an upgrade, this feature is similar to the official wow armory feature, and is quite performant, even though it doesn't match the accuracy of the official one.

- Search: the most important feature of the addon, it uses an AH-like frame to display search results. You can either search bags on the current realm, on all realms, or a loot table.
The loot table is a table based on AtlasLoot, but which contains only item id's, and therefore keeps memory usage minimal.

The Search menu allows you to find items based on their name (even partial), level, type or rarity, almost like at the AH. It is also possible to search known recipes.

- Quest Log: See the quest logs of all your alts, as well as an indication of which alts are on a specific quest. Clicking on a quest link in the chat log will tell you which alts are on that quest.

- Suggestions: Currently, only profession leveling suggestions are available when mousing over your current level in a specific profession. Suggestions are based on the leveling guides posted on the official US forums (credit goes to their respective authors). The addon also suggests you where to quest/grind xp depending on your character level.

Suggestions were also added for the most recent factions. More to come later.

- Auction house: You can see which auctions/bids you've placed with an alt without being logged in or being at the AH.

- Professions: You can browse all known recipes in a thotbot like frame (see screenshot).

- Mounts & Pets of all your alts.

- Achievements are tracked for all you alts (see screenshot).

- Guild Members: a list of your connected guildmates, along with their alts (if they're using Altoholic too), and their average item level. Clicking their AiL will also allow you to "remotely" inspect their equipment.

- Guild Skills: a list of altoholic users in your guild, along with their alts and direct profession links. All professions are available in one click.

- Guild Bank tabs: a list of altoholic users and the time at which they last visited the guild bank. If you haven't visited the guild bank for a few days, you can remotely update your local data without going to a capital city.


The FAQ has been moved here :


  • I'd like to thank my guild, Odysse├╝s on EU-Mar├ęcages de Zangar, for assisting me since the earliest phases, thanks guys for everything you've done :)
  • Thanks to the wowace community, you've been very helpful and this addon would not be there without the technical answers you gave me (especially Xinhuan, author of BankItems)
  • Thanks to all the guys who are behind AtlasLoot, keeping the loot table up-to-date is a tremendous work, and the search functionality of Altoholic would not be what it is without your hard work.
  • Thanks to Ayindi (wowace) & sLiz3r (curse) for the German translation.
  • Thanks to NightOwl (wowace) for the zhTW translation.
  • Thanks to Wang (wowace) for the zhCN translation.
  • Thanks to Hellbot for the ruRU translation.
  • Thanks to Laumac for the frFR translation.
  • Thanks to IrregularByte for the esES translation.
  • Brykrys for the LinkWrangler support.

6.2.007 (12/09/2015)

- Added Garona & Harrison Jones to the list of followers not recruited at the inn.
- Fixed guild bank tab icons displayed as a red square instead of the tab's icon.
- DataStore_Achievements: Fixed a Lua error at logon.

    Hi, can you tell me how I would remove the guild vault data from Altoholic? I left a guild a while ago, but I still see that guild vault listed when I do a search in Altoholic. Thanks!

  • #4831

    open the main window on the bottom click on guild tab, select the option for guild bank on the left. then use the first little icon at the top....looks like a group of ppl....a little menu comes to the side of each guild listed and you can delete from there.

    I also use Ackis recipe list to show the patterns I still need, but Pompachomp thinks this may be an Altoholic bug. Whenever I disable my non-raiding add-on set for raiding performance, the AH/vendor lists of unknown patterns disappears, even when the add-on is re-enabled, showing all, or most of, the patterns as green. Scanning the list of patterns twice with Ackis enables it to "remember" the list of known patterns again.

    The is such a handy feature to enable me to buy the few remaining patterns for other alts (2 world-drop enchanting ones on my main, but I have 3 enchanters, 2 of whom raid regularly). This add-on is very much appreciated!

    I do hope this add-on is still being maintained...

    Altoholic doesn't seem to be figuring out which recipes I have for tradeskills 100% correctly sometimes.  For example, I was looking at the grid view for my JC, and I noticed it had recorded that I had several of the epic gem recipes, everything looked fine.  Great!  I did some stuff.  I opened my character's JC crafting menu and filtered by demonseye and crafted something and closed it with the filter still active.  Then I went back to the Altoholic grid view for my JC and it only had checkboxes next to demonseye recipes, the rest were missing :(  After a relog things seem fine again.

    Anyway, hope that helps.  Thanks for a great addon :)

    For not speaking english as a native language, you sure as hell have better spelling and grammar than 90% of americans.

    Thank you for an awesome AddOn. But lately it hasn't been showing all the alts that have mail waiting for them. Is there something that I need to do to correct that?


    Thank you, Fran

  • #4823

    Recently have been getting messages every time I log onto a character telling me that I have multiple in-mail items getting ready to be returned. Mainly it is about mail on my main. Thing is there is nothing in the mail and the items it is listing are things that I either have in my bags or have already used.

    Broker _ Currency issue

    I can't seem to delete old toons from the Broker (Currency) mod. I can get them out of Altoholic without a problem, but they still show up in the broker bar. Any way around this?

    i just have noticed since our guild has got a 6th tab, that the tab 6, and only tab 6 has been displaying counts incorrectly. have you heard of this happening before? could it be that my data has become corrupted? it's been odd, since it is only the 6th tab like i said - i can't trust anything in there accurately now. hmmm.

    one last thing, i would dearly love to have added to this fantastic addon would be the functionality of adding items to be COUNTED in the VOID STORAGE. bagnon does this now, but i much prefer the way altoholic counts items. *pleads*

    thanks for listening. this is my absolute favorite addon, and i just wish for it to continue to be at its best. Smile

    Raid / BG UI Bug

    Hi! I REALLY REALLY love altoholic. I recommend to everyone. Only one problem that bothers me so much, during Battlegrounds I Literally have to disable it :( 

    My problem, is that when someone leaves the battlground or Looking for raid, If I click on say, the top person on the left, it might select the 5th person in row 3. there is no logic too It i dont think.  because if someone else joins, it works again. i dont know what it is doing, but I could use some help with it :S SOME People work, but it is literally like 3 out of 15, or more. if you could fix this, i would be so happy! I have had altoholic for so long, but never really said anything about it. Anyone else having this issue or know if there is a way, (other than /reload UI) to fix it?
