About Quartz

Quartz is a modular approach to a casting bar addon. An overview of (hopefully most of) the modules:


The core of Quartz is lightweight implementation of a standard casting bar, with configurable size, text and icon positioning, and colors.


Implementation of target and focus casting bars in similar fashion to the player cast bar.


Display of target and focus buffs and debuffs as duration bars using the new API introduced in patch 2.1.


Hooks into FlightMap or InFlight to display the current flight progress on your casting bar.

*Global Cooldown

Displays a tiny spark-bar to show your Global Cooldown near the cast bar. Helpful for those who'd rather not squint at their action bars to see when they can cast again.


Changes the color and text of your casting bar to help show that your cast has been interrupted (and show who interrupted it).


Displays the amount of time spent between cast send and start events, in the form of a bar at the end of your casting bar, with optional text that displays the actual duration of the lag. This helps in canceling casts when they will not actually be interrupted, especially for users with consistently high pings.


Shows the 'basic' timers such as breath and feign death, as well as some 'odd' ones such as party invite time, resurrect timeout, and arena game start, and a framework for injecting custom timers into the bars.


Recolors the casting bar when your cast target moves out of range mid-cast.


Displays a swing timer for your melee weapon as well as hunter autoshot.


Allows for creating custom timers displayed on the mirror bars.

*Tradeskill Merge

Merges multiple casts of the same tradeskill item into one big cast bar.

Use /quartz to bring up the configuration menu.

    I too would like to be able to move the castbar. The way it is now, it doesnt fit well with the layout of my UI. Just tell us which line(s) of code to modify and where it is.

    Excellent mod btw. Its really upped my dps on my mage.

    Clicking your next spell when your casting bar gets to red does indeed allow you to cast more spells in a given amount of time. Prior to this last patch, yes, you needed to use /stopcasting in your macros. Now you no longer need to. :o)

  • #101

    does the red latency section at the end of the bar allow the spell to be cast faster than if the mod wasnt being used, and in theory increase the persons dps?
    Or do you need to use some kind of /stopcasting macro aswell?

    the quartzlod.bat file converts the addon from a "all in one" addon to a spit up version of it.. so you can disable the parts you don't use..

  • #103

    what is the quartzlod MS-DOS-batchfil doing in the mod ???

  • #104

    one thing I think that would greatly improve this mod is being able to see 'test areas' (like in the miks scrolling battle text) for the bars so you can configure them all at one time...

    Looks like everyone has questions and no real answers, so I'm guessing the dev doesn't read this forum often...

    Nonetheless, I'll stick my feature request in. I stinking LOVE this mod, but I'd really like to see a buff bar for when I have been buffed/debuffed. You should be able to do this via API, just like the target/focus buff bars have been configured. Of course, I'd like the ability to rescale these/turn them off as needed.

    Considering there aren't really any mods out there that excel in buff/debuff countdowns, I think this would be a HUGE value add to this mod. :)

  • #107

    This mod says it out of date after i download, wtf?? Anyone know whats going on? I used to have this mod on my old comp. and i loved it, now it says its out of date...

  • #108

    The only options i think could have in next version is: rezise the buff bars, i can't do it in the current version. think about it guys.

  • #109

    Please update this, :>

  • #110

    please update... so many errors and most of the things wont work at all

  • #111

    I can't turn this off, i only want to use it for my hunter and its on when i switch to my druid and when i un check enable it doesn't do anything.

  • #113

    Disabling the addon on certain toons is what the addons screen is for.

  • #114

    For many addons in Curse, you can find an update here, for example for Quartz :

    Good luck :)

  • #115

    Everything i tried, i didn't got the flight bar working.
    I have enhanced flight map installed, but even when i disable it, there is no flight bar showing up.

    Any tips?
