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.

    Cleaning a few more posts.

    To solve a problem with :

    - DataStore_Skills.
    - DataStore_Quests.
    - Tooltip Error

    Please delete your Saved Variables before launching the latest update !
  • #3677
    Oh, and the error in TabOptions requires the same action to be taken.
  • #3672
    Ok, call me daft if need be, but Altoholic depends on DataStore for it's info, and DataStore hasn't been updated since 3.3. Have hauled through Curse and the web, but can find no updates anywhere for it.

    Altoholic might be stable, but if it's dependacy is buggered, then surely it will never work correctly?

  • #3673
    Um... every datastore_xxx library has been updated except datastore_skills (don't install that one). Try again.
  • #3688
    Not sure where you are picking that info up from, but according to my IE, none of the Datastore_xxx addons on have been updated since last december and are for patch 3.3.

    If you are getting these from somewhere other than, I would be chuffed if you would share this info with me, or point out to me what I am so obviously missing :(

  • #3671
    This has probably been posted a while ago, but honestly I have neither the time or the patience to look through dozens of pages of posts to find it. Is there a plan to incorporate a way to track unknown profession recipes? Thank you for your time in answering this post and the extraordinary amount of effort you put into this addon. I have found it extremely beneficial in leveling my alts.
  • #3693
    Until Thaoky can integrate such a feature, Ackis Recipe List will allow you to scan a profession tab for missing recipes as well as providing general locations (ie. vendor names or world drop).

    You'll have to log into the specific toon for now, but I hope it helps. :)
  • #3676
    That's something I would like to add at some point, but it's not going to be in the near future.
  • #3670
    love your addon been its a big help with my 9 alts and max professions on each but is there away to separate factions i use to be all alliance so it didn't matter but recently switched some to horde on same server and i thought it use to have diff groups for alliance and horde so u could see money and such for each faction with out it all being grouped all into one pot of gold
  • #3678
    The summary tab will get a review in the near future, there will be a faction filter.
  • #3669
    Hey Thaoky I would like to disable the /played time when I log in and also in the Altoholic Interface. Is there workaround in the lua files for this? An option to disable it would be great because it always gives me a punch in the face when I log in :D

    I love your add on and hate to ask a dumb question but...where is the changelog? I have deleted (moved to a save folder actually) all the datastore and altoholic folders in the addon folder and reinstalled altoholic but am still getting errors. It's not that I don't want to read the changelog just that I'm not sure where any official changelog is. The "changes" tab on the curse site is simply comments.
  • #3674
    In curse client right click on addon and choose "view changelog", done.
  • #3680
    In the Altoholic folder, there's a changelog.txt too.
