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.

    just a quick note of appreciation for all your hard work on this addon! both my husband and i just love Carbonite and have used it for years, like a lot of folks posting, we've become dependent on it! you forget how crappy Blizzards quest log, maps, etc are until Carbonite is gone :-) for me, you add all the goodies that Blizzard should have incorporated a long time ago!

    so anyways, thanks for all the hard work!! and eagerly awaiting the update! i know finding time to mess with stuff outside of work and family is tough sometimes. it's still amazing to me people do this work on addons for nothing.  working on something like this instead of playing or just having fun is admirable, i truly appreciate it!

  • #439

    i wasnt  trying to be mean im sorry :(

    i meant was blizzard needs to stop giving so much crap away and start giving money to the


    they now there maps is shi ty :D 

  • #441

    Aww I know you weren't chantelle :) I *completely* understand how you feel! I miss Carbonite too! WoW without Carbonite is like life without air! xP I just also know how it is to update code, especially when Blizzard changes the interface every 3 secionds lol! :) Anyway, I'm sure Rythal understands too.

    P.S. The idea about giving the money to Carbonite is *AWESOME* imho xP

    Wow how rude

    Read what Rythal has said in the previous posts...

    If carbonite dosnet get fixed its becasue of ungreatful people like you.



  • #437

    Wow! This one has srs issues O.o I've played WoW since early days of bc and used Carbonite (my fave addon btw) for as long as I can remember. I too have issues playing without it, but chill chantelle xP Ik how u feel, but I'm sure the dev is working as hard as he can. Being a developer myself I know how hard it is to update code, especially when Blizz keeps changing the dang mapping API, among other things, as a previous comment hinted at, so the best thing we can do is give Carbonite's developer as much support as we can! We know they pwn and shouting isn't gonna speed things up. Anyway, I feel ya chantelle, I'm just saying ik how the dev feels and considering all the other major addons are updating it may be frustrating seeing carbonite still out of date on curse client but support < shouting in my experience. :) <3 to all my WoWers and esp my fellow Carbonite users, but most of all to the amazing developer who spawned this amazing addon! =)

  • #436

    One post down. Literally one post down from yours was someone letting us know what was up and that the update was on the way out. 

    If you play the way you comment, the entire community would be better off it you did quit. =/

  • #435

    How rude!!!

  • #432

    here is what I found today on the WOW Interface fourm:

     BY Rythal

    Status Update: (meant to post this last night before bed but internet went out)

    The maps are back up and running, and I can see my position in the zone... hovering over other zones shows the information about them.

    Still to be fixed before I can release (and this is just base maps, I haven't started looking at any module):
    - Overlays are not working yet (as in zone itself is not filled in if i hover over it)
    - Zoomed in Detailed Map tiles are not working yet
    - Points of interest are not working yet
    - Testing battlegrounds and instances to see if they work properly
    - Sizing Scale of continent 5 (Maelstrom) is incorrect;page=4

    hope this helps. I look forward to get this addon back!!

    We are *totally* with u mcbigboy! Ik how frustrating Blizz's damn API changes (or any other companies' changes can be) O.o Just know that as much as I miss Carbonite I completely empathize and appreciate your obviously HARD work on getting it back to us (and back to you, no doubt). It means a lot to me and many others! You pwn xP Getting it right is better than getting it now, as I'm sure (nearly) everyone else agrees! So I'll keep my patience as long as it takes and do my best to cope <bites nails> xP Jk great work man! We love you!

    Awesome thanks for the update mcbigboy =)  So can not wait to use carbonite again!

  • #431
    Patiently awaiting an update

    Absolutley love this addon!   So happy that the original designers gave the permission and rights for Rythal to take over updating and running the addon!   Both my wife and i rely on this addon (one of our major core addons we use).   Blizzard maps just dont do it for us.  Like the ability to put markers and stuff on carbonite maps, plus they can be manipulated to your specific needs, where as Blizz just makes the map secure and not able to manipulate =(  Great job Rythal!  Keep up the great work!   Will donate when we have some extra funds to help out!   Patiently awaiting the update for 6.0!

    Re: Carbonite, Buy a Beer button

    Ive used carbonite since it came out, I use to have a subscription till wow got all frikin bititchy about people earning a few $ from the game. I have donated and will donate again to this guys website.


    DO your self a favor Buddy have a Buy a BEER button on the interface like 0q has. I bet ther will be many many more people willing to buy you a beer through the addon instead of going to your site.

    the only thing I ask is if you hav not alot of time? is  Just do a slimmed version using the map data. god i love this map. nothing out there like it.

    Big thank you and best of luck in Real Life...
