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.

  • #230

    My tracking arrow is bugged frooze not traking anymore.

    Thank your for taking over carbonite addon and keeping it up to date i would be lost without it



  • #229

    i absolutely love this addon and have been using it on every character for such a long time, but the latest release dropped my framerates to 1 from 85.

    disabling the addon restored my framerates to normal.

  • #228

    Have posted before but will post again, the original addon authors have given up the project and Rythal is now handling things.  The addon had MAJOR flaws related to the expansion process and is going through a major rewrite.  This is happening at the same time that patches are coming out and some flaws will only be fixed when the rewrite is complete. 

    If you are having major problems and want to help out I suggest posting the information here:


  • #227

    With the 5.2 update, I get about a dozen errors when I login, then another one every time I do something that involves carbonite. I had fewer (but still quite a few) errors with the 5.2 beta.

    Love this addon. My only problem with it is that my LFG or tracking eye for bg's, arenas, dungeons sometimes moves over the tracking icon and i cant leave ques. It acts as if the eye isnt even there and when i right click on the eye thats now covering the tracking icon it brings up the tracking menu. So the only way to leave ques is to wait it out even after reloading my ui which is a huge pain if im in a group with friends. Anyone else have this problem?

  • #226

    click both left and right mousebutton and hold, drag and release at new spot.

    Done :P

  • #224

    Started using this as a replacement for questhelper and everyquest, and so far it's amazing. I do have one problem though, and that's being unable to stop it from tracking questgivers I can't get quests from (such as class trainers, race specific quests, etc). Is there any way to do this, or is there an update coming that will include this feature?

    tracking HUD sugestion

    please add a negative Y offset for the Goto arrow. i.e. i would like the ability to put the arrow on the side of the text so it's horizontaly aligned

  • #221

    NPC tracking doesn't work.

  • #220
    Privacy Feature

    Just a quick question about the privacy feature:

    Does this make you appear offline to the guild and RLID friends? Or just carbonite users?

    Don't know who is more guilty - Carbonite or SmartRes2, so posting this for both.

    It is SmartRes2, and I fixed it. Thank you for the report!
