About Mapster

Mapster is a very simple world map enhacement addon, which was designed to work in conjunction with all other map addons out there. The idea to create Mapster originated from pure lack of a simplistic addon that only modifies the world map, without adding a full scale feature set.


  • Map Style (Scale & Alpha)
  • Coordinates
  • Fog of War removal
  • Enhancement of the raid/party group icons
  • Access to the Instance Maps from anywhere!

You can access the Mapster configuration menu through the new button on the world map, as shown in the screenshot. All features (except the style) can be turned off individually if you do not need/want them.

If you're looking for a replacement to Cartographer, i also recommend the following addons:

    Bugged PoS that doesn't get updated.

  • #1068

    Having issues with Mapster causing WoW 64 errors and the game completely crashing and having to be restarted. Narrowed it down to that by only enabling 1 addon at a time and performing /reload UI commands and logging out/exiting game. Those are the 3 actions that would always cause game crashes.

    Does anyone else have the bug where the Mount Hyjal map is all green?

  • #1063

    For you guys having issues with the Boss icons not showing up while in raids.  This is a comment pulled from wowinterface that I used and it made the icons reappear.


    his latest version has problem with Boss icons. Maybe you deleted this row in "profile" block by accident:

    local defaults = {
    profile = {
    showEJBosses = true,
    Basically, open your mapster.lua file in notepad, find the line that's in reference above(profile=[),and paste the showEJBosses line exactly as it's shown here.  Save the file, open WoW, voila you have icons again.  Quick and dirty fix until something more permanent is implemented.  Credit goes to Cloudyfa, I just simply pulled it from his wowinterface comment to bring to Curse.

  • #1065

    I was getting this regularly as well.  Have stopped using Mapster until an update fixes this.

  • #1059

    I'm getting the same error as MacDubhgal in raid. In addition I can't join a BG because of the following error when I click the Join Battle button in the PVP window.

    2x [ADDON_ACTION_FORBIDDEN] AddOn "Mapster" tried to call the protected function "JoinBattlefield()".
    !BugGrabber-r193-release\BugGrabber.lua:587: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:587>
    <in C code>
    Blizzard_PVPUI\Blizzard_PVPUI-1.0.lua:507: in function "HonorFrame_Queue"
    <string>:"*:OnClick":2: in function <string>:"*:OnClick":1


  • #1060

    Just an addendum to this. I tried with Mapster as the only active addon and it didn't throw the error when trying to join a BG. Strangely enough, after that even with all the other addons re-enabled it no longer threw that error when trying to join the BG.

    Still throwing errors when in raids tho :(

  • #1058

    The boss links to the dungeon journal are not showing up after latest update.  I disabled mapster to confirm that it is what's causing the problem.  I'm not getting an error associated with the issue.

  • #1061

    There's a closed ticket for it and an alpha build that says it has the fix:


  • #1057

    Since patch 5.3.0 the map won't show at all when pressing the m key. Map button has gone also. Uninstalled the bitch and looking for other resizer/addon.
