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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As with every new expansion, many things have changed in the API, and it is REQUIRED to clear your Saved Variables for the addon.
This means cleaning the following files in \WTF\Account\<your_account>\SavedVariables : Altoholic.lua & All DataStore*.lua

There WILL be bugs if you use your old files without cleaning them first.
Some fixes to work around API changes are too time consuming, so cleaning is required. A meager price to pay once per expansion.

    This may seem like a strange request, but hear me out :-)

    It would be awsome if my inscriptionist will be able to tell which of the glyphs that it can make are needed by my other alts. This is similar to the way vendors have recipes marked by "already known by", "can be learned by", etc...

    On each glyph, I would be happy to see "Could be learned by...." so I know what I can make there and then rather then have to jump all around.... Likewise in the AH...

    Thanks for great addon!

  • #5001

    This is already in place as I was missing this when the patch first came out.  Just mouse over the glyph and you should see "Already Known:", "Could be learned by:" and "Craftable by:" in the tooltip.


  • #4996

    Things seem to be working pretty well for the most part, thank you thank you :)

    I'm getting a LUA error when I log in on one particular character.  I originally didn't have any talent points, but when I added some, it didn't go away.  I removed all my DataStore files from my WTF folder upon installing Altoholic v5.0.001b.  It only seems to repro on my lvl 80 hunter.  Let me know if other info would be useful :)

    Yep, same problem for me.  Happened after updating to v5.0.001b.

    Yes, this is a bug due to that paticular toon not having Dual Specialization.  Already have a ticket in for it under Datastore_Talents.

    More likely to get your bug fixed by posting a ticket at the official website

    Quote from Altodicted»

    A few bugs I've stumbled on so far:

    At [Achievements] and [Grids] there's still room for (only) 10 toons while there's now a max of 11 toons per realm.

    Percentages shown at reputations only show 2 digits/characters; so only 0% - 9% is readable. At 10% and higher only the 1st digit is shown followed by some dots.

    Pets can only be learned once for all alts (accross realms) (like mounts) but are not shown in the pet-list. List of mounts seem to be accurate.

    These haven't been fixed yet.

  • #4991

    Herblism tooltip issue still not fixed.

    Skills > Herblism: still shows 'No data: 0 Recipes', it shouldn't have that line showing as Herblism can't learn any recipes.

  • #4986

    There is no talents in gui

  • #4984

    I'm having several issues with the new version (

    • Summary Tab - Bag usage - shows unknown for all toons for player and bank
    • Summary Tab - Skills - No primary professions are showing, secondaries are showing 0
    • Characters tab - no information at all
    • Grids - Only Archeology and Tabards are active; only Tabards grid shown even with Archeology selected
    This is a fresh install, there were no Atloholic or Datastore LUAs in my WoW folders at all prior to this install.
  • #4992

    As a follow up, it is showing that my main Alliance toons has a Horde Tabard (Bilgewater Cartel)
