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.

    I'm sorry whats an SV file?
  • #3550
    Saved Variables. Found in WTF/Account/account_name/SavedVariables/Altoholic.* and WTF/Account/account_name/SavedVariables/DataStore*

    This means that you will lose all saved data about each of your characters/banks/mailboxes/etc, but you just need to login on each toon to refresh that data after removing the SV files for Altoholic
  • #3548
    SavedVariables files.
  • #3547
    Saved Variables file... its found nestled inside your WTF folder several layers down

    Also, if you use Curse Client it has a check box on the delete confirmation box for deleting Saved Variables Files...

    ty to both of you lol I appreciate it!

    First let me say I rarely leave comments for anyone so do not take my words lightly. With that being said, I must commend you for a great great addon. This is one of the few addon's on this game that is a must for a set group of people. Even if you only have one alt you need this addon, this addon did for alt lover what Healbot did for healers. It made the game for us that run alts more enjoyable and easier to play. I have had this addon since you released it and have been thankful for the ability to locate things with the ease of this addon. I look forward to using this addon through Cata and beyond. So from the bottom of every "ALT-oholic" in this game Thank you for your hard work and dedication to this addon. Though some will not say it We love you for it.

    As someone who mainly plays healer, I do not agree. Altoholic is awesome. Healbot on the other hand is an addon for people playing a healing spec, yet do not enjoy healing...
  • #3551
    I totally agree. well said.
  • #3544
    4.0.001 has just been uploaded and is awaiting admin approval.

  • #3553
    Thank you! I have adored this addon for, oh, years now and being without it on the Beta servers for months and in the live game for the last few days has been horrible!
  • #3543
    This really is an amazing addon, looking forward to an update. :) Thank you for writing it.
  • #3542
    Thank you, for creating the best addon Ive ever used. A guildie told me about it and ever since then ive been hooked its awesome hope it gets updated soon.
  • #3541
    I've loved this add-on since I first found it, and recommend it to people every chance I get. I'm missing it like crazy, and checking curse several times a day for an update. This is NOT an 'omg why isn't it fixed yet?!?!' post, but a 'thank you for all the hard work you've put into this awesome add-on, Thaoky!' post.
  • #3540
    Just adding my voice to the others, how much I miss the addon. Hope you get it working, but don't let me interrupt.
  • #3539
    This lua error keeps popping up. Will send others if I see them.
