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.

5.4.004 (07/10/2013)

- Fixed showing the item source for crafts in the tooltip.
- Fixed LibCraftInfo.

5.4.003 (06/10/2013)

- Created and added support for 3 new libraries : LibCraftInfo, LibCraftLevels, LibCraftReagents.
These libraries intend to replace the lost functionality caused by tables reset to zero in LibPeriodicTable.
I now have my own dataminer, so these tables should be easier to maintain when a patch hits.
I also cleaned up some hard coded tables to now use the libraries instead.
Overall, the addon now consumes a little bit more memory, but the data sources are way more complete than before.
- Replaced the internal list of recipes by LibCraftInfo.
- Fixed the Characters -> Profession pane no longer showing reagents due to LPT changes.
- Fixed the Grids -> Tradeskills pane no longer correct due to LPT changes.

    Flairs and or Focus

    I love this add-on with a passion!!! Not sure I would be willing to play Wow w/o it!!!!!

    but... for the love of god can u fix the issue with it not allowing me to set flairs or focus most of the time!!!

    I almost always get forced to shut it down at raid start when I try to set flairs and or focus. Same issue for some of my raiders who also love your add-on.

    If any error reports would help you out please let me know how to find them and I will assist in any way that I can.

    Best regards;

     EDIT: This is not a new issue its been consistent since WOTLK and across 2 different computer systems. Thought this info may help.

    December 3, 2011 - Altoholic for the last three days has been messed up every time logging into WoW. It's over the auction house window, you have to deselect show tab to make it disappear. If you have the tab showing it doesn't show your currency amounts correctly. And now today, if it's activated at all, you can't buy or bid auctions. I had to go to Add-Ons and deselect Altoholic and turn it totally off so I could get anything from the auction house. Love Altoholic, but this is just a pain.

  • #4531

    Thaoky stated he is working on this and an update is forth coming.


    Until Just turn it off.  I'm hoping myself that an update will be out soon.

  • #4535

    Oh, I always realized how awesome this addon was as soon as I discovered it!

  • #4533

    I'm sure he's working hard on it. Been using this since BC, if i recall. You never realize just how wonderful it is til its gone! Cry

  • #4517

    Hi there,

    I should post an update either tomorrow or Saturday.

  • #4529

    Really looking forward to the update..Missing that brilliant addon espacilly now after that patch, hard to keep track of things on all the alts :)

  • #4527

    This is the one I get most use out of too - chewing my nails off, waiting...

  • #4523

    Thank you for all your hard work in putting this addon together.  I have 10 85's , 7 personal guild banks and I WILL NOT play the new patch until altoholic is available.  I dont know how people manage multiple toons without your addon.  Again thank you for putting this together, we altoholics would be lost without you.  Cheers from Argent Dawn!

  • #4522

    My hero! Thank you for your time and effort! I am lost without this addon. 

  • #4521


    Thank you very much! Very appreciated! :D Love this add and use it non-stop!

  • #4520

    Thank you sir!  The last few days have been confusing.  Your hard work is much appreciated, I don't think I could get by without it.
