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.

    Update please

  • #1978

    5.1 update?

  • #1977

    Even though I have mirror cast bar off it's still showing. Any ideas how I can make that ugly bar go away? Thx!

  • #1975

    So I'm finding myself switching specs a lot and have macros to make it faster/switch my gear specs @ the same time.

    Anyway to make a macro that switches to a certain Quartz profile on command? Because there are certain functions I like having on and off depending on my spec.

    I've looked this idea up but the only code/macos I've found do not work.


  • #1970

    Any way to make spinning crane kick show up (since it is channeled)?  All my other spells on all my toons appear just fine with the noticeable exception of this one.

    The sole reason I'm going with a competing castbar addon is for Quartz' lack of an option to flip the castbar animation. Big annoyance for players who enjoy a clean and pretty UI. Otherwise a great addon though.

  • #1960


    Would it be possible to give the mirror bars an independant scale value? Right now they inherit the Player bar scale. I have mine set very low (0.6) for border reasons, but it means the mirror bars are way too small, even with the values maxed. I've hardcoded mine temporarily to 0.9 for the mirror bars and it works fine, but it would be useful to have a slider. :)

  • #1958

    There's no option under Interface -> Quartz -> Target to disable the default Blizzard cast bar for my target frame. Any way to take care of this problem?

  • #1957

    Alright, I have a question. Is there any way possible to show my cooldown bars in quartz when I have no one selected? So, it shows player timers? That way Im able to select the boss and see how my own timers are doing. So far, I have not found any solution to this :S

  • #1956
    I got a little problem and need some help. The thing is when my target is casting a spell,my FPS would get a significant decline. This phenomenon just happened after I got this addon. What should I do to this problem?

    Quote from niusiyuan »I got a little problem and need some help. The thing is when my target is casting a spell,my FPS would get a significant decline. This phenomenon just happened after I got this addon. What should I do to this problem?

    I was getting this issue also, but a complete freeze lasting in the range of a second to 5+ seconds when my target would cast something.  *note* I'm using Elvui and the extra skins addon that skins quartz aswell, so it may be an issue with the quartz skin itself.

  • #1954

    I also am not able to see Quartz's buff bar. I can see debuffs I put on a target, but not my friendly buffs. I've tried disabling all my mods but Quartz and still no luck. Is this a bug perhaps??

  • #1953

    Where in this awesome mod are the controls for the timer for drowning, fatigue, and such.  I just want to move that bar back to where it was and make it bigger and can't for the life of me figure out where it is...


  • #1952
    just one small request is there anyway for you to make it so the targets cast bar can be flipped and change the way is goes so it would cast from right to left? or is there a way to do it now and im missing how to do it thanks
