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.

    Thank your for providing us this wonderful addon. Me and my brother have just a little problem showing pandaria map sometimes. Anyway good work and thanks again!

  • #186

    Last night i downloaded bartender and spell flash and when i logged into the game Carbonite has completely reset. I've lost all my favourourites and notes. There is nothing in the Carbonite lua file for my faves anymore. Does anyone know how i can retrieve all that information?

    Unfortunately with the way WoW saves information once you log out and it writes to the file again there is no way to go back unless you've saved it at some time to another place.

    If it's any consolation, the next major version of carbonite would of reset them all anyways since it's no longer stored in Carbonite.lua.

    i just got pandaria and started playing wow and i used to love carbonite but now i have carbonite covering a blizz map in the fs map and minimap without them properly merging...what gives?

    here are screenshots:

  • #188

    The panda map is bugged, well not bugged, it's just not in the right place... the black bar you see is the map of pandaria overlapping the map of wandering isle... it's fixed for the next version.

    Re: Carbonite mineing nodes wont flash

    The mineing nodes on one of my characters wont flash, they do flash on other characters just not on this one, I have adjusted the flash speed and the icon size trying various settings but still no flash, I even tried importing the settings from another character but still no flash, am I missing something obvious? any ideas would be greatly appriciated.

    Thank You




  • #195

    You posted a few weeks ago, so not sure if you have figured it out yet, but Carbonite doesn't provide the flash, Carbonite provides the known locations a node "could" spawn.  Click the magnifying class for tracking, then click the appropriate find whether it be mining, herbing.  Once that is done you should then notice the flash of the yellow dot overlaying a carbonite known location if there is actually something there to get.

  • #182

    I realise there is a raft of tracking options for Carbonite - and there may be some kind of a clash with the Blizzard options that I am missing - but I dont seem to be able to track the Scenario objectives fully. It does show the Stage I am on (eg: 1/5 rescue the villagers etc) but not the progress towards completing the stage (eg: 1/8 villagers rescued). Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  • #189

    for now it only tells you which step your on, and if you hover over the ball it describes what your objective is... it doesn't yet track the objective.

  • #180

    Love this addon, been using it for a long time. However I recently encountered a problem while doing quests in Pandaria. When the game trys to give me the option to accept a new quest (one that doesn't come through a quest giver), I can't see it to accept. So far I've seen this happen on two quests, the one for throwing the fish back in the water in Nyeli Lagoon, and the Meet the Scout quest for landing the alliance fleet. In both cases I had to disable Carbonite and use the existing Blizz interface to accept the quests. Not a hugh problem, but I figured you'd want to know about it. Thanks for all the hard work!

  • #179

    I love this addon.  I'm not sure if it is this addon, but when i use Carbonite and TipTac together I get this problem.  My tool tip is anchored on the right side of my UI, but when I click on a vendor or quest giver and the corresponding frame pops up, my tool tip moves to the top left of that frame.  It resets either after time or if I re-mouse over the NPC.  I've tried different options in both addons, but I can't seem to stop this behavior.  I can live with it, but I'd really like to fix it if possible.  Any help as to why this happens would be greatly appreciated.

  • #181

    I have the very same issue - glad its not just me! 

  • #178

    I really like this addon and I have used it for years. However, this is something that has been bothering me for a while and I haven't been able to figure out what's causing it, even after scouring all the settings and playing around with them.

    In the past, and as I can see on the screen shot, whenever I would be doing quests, I was able to see the quest areas in different colors. Since some time around Cata, all I see is a single dot directing me to the quest, which is fine when it's a specific location, but when the objctive covers an area, I have to keep switching to the regular WoW map to figure out the quest boundaries. I have recently reinstalled the game along with all my addons, yet the issue is still there. Any idea how to resolve it?

  • #190

    if you right click on the map, and select "show" there is options to show the quest blobs which turns on seeing the same blue quest areas blobs you get on the map.
