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.

6.1.005 (20/04/2015)

- The garrison mission tooltip now shows a red exclamation mark '!' when no missions are active.
- In the account summary, the last column used to sort the view is now remembered, and is restored when you log in again.
- Character's tab: fixed a lua error when mousing over the professions' icon of a character that does not have 2 professions.
- Account Summary: modified the garrison followers pane to show followers at iLvl 675 and a column for their weapon/armor iLvl.

    Loved this add on, but I and a few guildies all seem to get random disconnections from the game when using it.
  • #3115
    Having a bit of a problem where Altoholic is showing mail existing for a character that I deleted. How can I delete a character from the data ?

    Outside of that, fantastic add-on.
  • #3131
    As per CircaRevolt's reply 7-10 posts down:

    You can go into the main Altoholic panel where it lists your characters, then just right click on the character you want to delete and choose the delete option from the list that drops down. It should get rid of it from the database.

    I love this addon. Thank you for all your hard work. Unfortunately I started getting an error about a week ago and only 2 toons are showing up.

    hey. how are things. I can not seem to get this addon to work. its installed in addons folder and i have ace 3 there as well. in game i can't seem to find anyway to bring the window up. i've read quite a few posts but have found nothing. any suggestions would be great. thanks.
  • #3109
    I keep getting error messages when I use altoholic, ever since I got it a few months back.

    Here are a bunch I got in the last 5 minutes:

    Anything I can do to prevent these?
  • #3225
    Stop playing on a private server ? ;)
  • #3107
    Love the addon, now a must-have for myself and my guild, but a question - how do I delete a char when it is no longer on one realm? I moved a char to another realm, but it still appears in the db as the original realm, then when I try to sync with another account, it does not appear (conflict I guess).

    Appologies if this has already been answered, I'm a bit slow today ...

    This addon does make multi accounts, especially for tradeskills, SO much easier, thanks!
  • #3119
    You can go into the main Altoholic panel where it lists your characters, then just right click on the character you want to delete and choose the delete option from the list that drops down. It should get rid of it from the database.
  • #3104
    Okay, apparently I'm too stupid to find the answer on my own. *laugh*

    At the top of the altoholic window, there's a dropdown box that lets you choose This account, All accounts, etc. What exactly does it mean by All Accounts? Cuz I have too accounts merged into my thing and I don't see the characters from my other account listed when I choose "All Realms (All Accounts)". Am I misunderstanding the meaning?
  • #3120
    This actually comes in handy if you use the account sharing option which allows you and another player to share you Altoholic database.
    The "all accounts" is for displaying your account's character(s) as well as all your friends'.
  • #3103
    Is there a way to check how many badges/emblems your characters have? If not, could I request that that be implemented at some point?
  • #3226
    Yes, you can check that on the "currency" tab (on the character's details tab). Then you can select either "pvp", "raid", etc... to see the corresponding badges/emblems.
  • #3101
    my version seems to work great. haven't seen an error from this addon in a very very long time.
