About Carbonite

CARBONITE® is a multi feature addon developed by game industry veterans to improve and enhance the game playing experience of World of Warcraft.

Please visit Carbonite's official support forums for technical support, bug reports, comments, suggestions, etc.

Map - The Carbonite map gives you all the information you need in one easy to use and flexible Google like map. Move, size or zoom it the way you like.

Carbonite supports the Blizzard maps added for WotLK and most Cataclysm instances. Right click an instance location on the map and "Toggle Instance Map" or enter the instance for it to be drawn on the Carbonite map. You will need to zoom in, since they are drawn at a small size. You can see your location and create favorites in the instance.

Quest - Blaze through quests at lightning speed and level faster than you ever thought possible. Our extensive quest database lists the location of quest givers, objectives and turn-ins. Simply click any objective from your quest list and Carbonite will show you where to go. No more wasted time bouncing back and forth between a web browser and the game.

Guide/Hud - The guide is your in-game GPS - it contains the location of every mailbox, trainer, flight master, repair vendor, instance, battle master, etc... if it's in the game it's in the guide. Just click the icon and the HUD navigation arrow will show you the direction, distance and ETA to your target. You can also use it to locate your friends or guild members in a battleground.

CarboniteItems - A data addon that contains information on over 25000 game items. It loads when you use the "Items >>" section of the Guide. Mouse over the item icons to see a Carbonite generated tooltip of information on the item. Search items for specific stats or where it came from. Sort by level, name or search line. Browse bosses for loot.

Warehouse - Browse the equipment, bag and bank slots of every one of your characters at one time! Check their professions, money, experience, honor, arena points and more. You don't have to spend your time switching between characters, use the search filter to find the characters that have just what your looking for.

Battlegrounds - Dominate your opponents with our enhanced battleground map. See the combat status, heath, target and target health of all your teammates. See objective timers right on the map and issue orders with a click of the mouse – call for reinforcements to attack a vulnerable enemy target or simply announce the status of an objective.

Events - A time stamped list of experience and honor gained, enemies killed and other information. What was the name of that guy who ganked you 10 minutes ago? How much honor did you get from the last 3 kills? Did you land the killing blow? Look and see.

Gather - All mining and herb picking is tracked and can be shown on map.

UI - Windows can be moved, sized and locked. Values are saved for each character. Coexists well with most UI addons.

Privacy - Not in a social mood? Just turn off communication with guild, friend or zone and other Carbonite users won't see what you're up to.

    Plz for the mother of god tell me there some plans to update this when WOD come out? or do i need to start shopping for a diffrent questing addon

  • #362

    I really need this addon updated. I love what it does, tracking punks in the area. Gives me a heads up when horde are in the area to be on the look out for them but it also gives their name when i'm trying to hunt them down and auto targets, I also can't live without this map. Its amazingly useful being able to zoom in and see the terrain details, set waypoints EXACTLY where i want them, tracking quests... setup routes for mining and making sure i hit every possible node on the map....and its all in one place and I love it....

    I just can't stand all the bugs and incompatibilities!!! I can't use gatherer anymore. I installed gather mate and the database but it says its not installed, i get errors all the time from it saying something isn't working now, or it screws with other addons like elvUI and Super Guild invite...I'm using the alpha version and I haven't seen any updates in forever...:(

  • #360

    What the hell happened? Why can't I see zones in the map anymore? (On the Carbonite map)

  • #359

    I love carbonite. Would play wow without it. But now I am into Elder Scrolls Online. Would really like to see this addon.

  • #356

    Sucks.  Because this addon alone did something no other addon did - show health and combat status of everyone in your BG.  Towards the end I hated the piling on of useless crap like Altoholic inventory/warehousing w/e (probably to justify people paying for it?) but for BGs it was the bomb.  And for questing.

    The whole Carbonite story should be a cautionary tale for throwing everything but the kitchen sink into one addon.  If you as a developer go through a period where you can't update it any more, making something so complex as to be nigh impossible for others to maintain, the addon will die.

    The origonal developers left.  They actually wrote a program to change names of things so they could make it hard if not impossible for anyone to "steal" the code.

    Now it's one guy going through and doing a rewrite from the bottom up.

  • #361

    I would like to also awknowledge Rythal as a very important person to the World of Warcraft.  I personally find WoW unplayable without Carbonite.....I'm just too used to my addon setup and have played for too many years to have anything "less" than perfect.  

    I and thousands (or millions) of others probably feel the same.  Rythal should go down in WoW history as a hero.

    So it is Rythal who is building this up from the bottom again?
    Thanks.....for the hard work.
    I loved this Addon. Did stop using it couple of weeks because of Errors.
    Noticed it is updated again.
    Have updated it now and will try using it again. Hope all is fine now.

    Thanks again Rythal!!

    I am having an issue with the old and new update. I removed all versions that were on my PC and installed the lated version and i still have over 20 quests that arent in the data base. Has any one else had this problem and havea fix for it.


  • #353

    I was wondering if it is possible to add quests to the database in Carbonite?  I have just completed one quest on many of my alts, and there is no record of it in the database when I try to clcik on the dot next to it in my quest list.

  • #350

    I don't know how many know this, but there was an update on October 7th that seems to work okay. Some low level quests are missing, but Carbonite is still in pretty good shape and bug free for your level 90's.
