About MagicMarker

Addon Support Statement

Hello everyone. I'm no longer actively playing World of Warcraft (and haven't for many months). I'm looking for someone to take over maintenance of my addons. If you're interested, and have at least one released addon, send me a message at [email protected]

Addon Description
Magic Marker lets you easily classify and mark mobs simply by moving the mouse over them while pressing a modifier key. This allows incredibly fast marking of trash groups. Although not necessary for the addon to function, you can configure the priority and crowd control methods you wish to use on a per mob basis. You can also customize the marks to use for tank targets and each crowd control method. This allows for consistent marking of targets to tank and crowd control in raid and party situations


  • Mob-level configuration to specify the priority, desired category (i.e Tank or Crowd Control) and applicable crowd control methods.
  • Automatically learns new crowd control methods as they are discovered.
  • Prioritize raid icon configuration for tank targets and all crowd control methods.
  • Prioritize crowd control methods.
  • Separate priorities for crowd controlling and tanking (optional).
  • Marks targets in priority order simply my mousing over them.
  • Automatically learn about new mobs as you encounter them.
  • Ability to unmark and mark targets manually at the press of a button.
  • Ability to ignore mobs you don't want to mark.
  • Never use more raid icons for a specific CC method than there are members of the class in the raid/party (i.e if there are two mages in the raid, there will never be more than 2 targets marked for sheeping).
  • Option to honor externally marked targets (i.e if someone manually marked a target MagicMarker won't clobber it).
  • Option to preserve marks on the raid members.
  • Ability to save a template of the marks on the raid and recall them (not persistant).
  • Ability to mark members of the raid based on some preset rules.
  • Full fledged dynamically generated UI to configure all the details (while using minimal amount of memory).
  • Network syncing for marking, unmarking and sharing of the mob database and mark/cc settings.
  • Clears used marks when mob dies.
  • Send a list of marks, mob name and kill/cc method to the raid / party chat channel.
  • Keybindings to manipulate mob configuration (priorities, category) without opening the mob database, makes initial configuration and adjustments easier.
  • Ability to select minimum number of mobs to always mark as tank targets.
  • Ability to import data from MagicMarker_Data (included in the package).

    does anyone have any recommendations for replacement of this addon? sadly, this addon is dead :( I'm looking for an addon like magicmarker that allows me to mark target but holding a key and marks as I mouseover the targets.

  • #90

    Doesn't work in latest patch like Elvenbane pointed out, same problem here.

  • #89

    Been running this addon since BC and since the 5.0.4 update (1.0.193) the main window of the Raid Target Settings and Crowd Control Priority tabs are both blank (and as a result the addon doesn't mark anything).  I've tried deleting my saved variables (and resetting the profile) for the addon but that doesn't seem to correct the issue, any suggestions?

    Where is the userguide for this addon? It looks like it may have potential, however is very complicated and I have no idea where to start.

    Please can someone post a link to the authors guide or a vid on how to set it up?

  • #87
    Any way to get this to show a dropdown of the Raid World Markers (the colored flares) in say the LDB part? Easy access to those in a party is very nice for organizing random dungeons.

    I have one problem with the addon. It keeps marking CCed targets that I checked for Bind Elemental, and marking them for Bind Elemental even when we don't have a Shaman in the group. Do you know how to fix this?
  • #83
    Seconding request for a tutorial / FAQ of sorts. Another raider and myself spent over an hour looking at BoT trash trying to get this to work, and the only thing it was able to mark was "tanking" targets. It automatically adds new mobs with a "tanking" priority. If I manually change the mob to CC priority, add the CC's it can be affected by, make sure there's an icon for that CC method, it outright refuses to mark the mob whatsoever, claiming "no raid mark" available.
    It also acts a bit weird when there's 2+ people in the raid running the addon, with all of the sharing accepts turned off. The addon doesn't immediately accept changes made in the addon settings.

    the author on the wowace site:
    "I haven't been configuring much CC and such for Magic Marker. also I just discovered a very serious bug that's basically making all data since 4.0 bogus (wrong unit id). The next release will try to fix this but until then releasing any data wouldn't be very helpful."

    Maybe this is why the cc marking isn't working for you. Unfortunately, its been several months since with no updates.
  • #84
    Oh, and it loves to mark the twilight mender patrolling in the back of the room, but not the one in the front that you have to clear first.
  • #81
    Ok, how can I use this addon? I tried to set the marks in the mob database tab but it's blank! :-/
  • #82
    Mobs are added to the database as you see them in instances. It'll be empty when you first install the addon.
  • #80
    Can we get an update for Cata, bind elemental, a shaman cc, is not there, and please i beg you...Can you put out some kind of guide/tutorial for this addon. Either on youtube or a good written guide. I searched the web and there is a lot of people that are interested in using this mod but just cant get a hold of it. There is no documentation on how to use this at all, and it is a fairly complex mod.

    Thank you

    how to activate this addon?
    a doesnt have anythyng on minimap or elsewhere.
    i have a titan panel and some another addons
  • #77
    First off, I love this addon. Does take a little work to use but don't all the great ones?

    I'd like to make a feature request. When using the assignments feature, it tells you what CC to use for what mark. Could you make it so that it assigns actual people to those CC (or have the option to anyhow)? Or, even better (though more work), allow you to assign players to have preferred marks (and save those marks just like you do different CCs having marks).

    Also, Bind Elemental (shaman ability) is missing.
