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.

    - Use a SecureHook for DoTradeSkill as tainting causes the Enchanter's Study to break.
    Untested, this may break the tradeskill cast bar functions slightly.

    I have a bug with the latency bar that's been happening ever since the patch dropped. Every few casts the latency bar seems to break out' of the cast bar and go off the screen. When this happens it says 0ms. The next few casts everything will be normal and then it happens again. Is anyone else having this? The in-game latency always shows me stable at around 38ms so I don't think its my connection screwing up.

    Is there any way to seperate the player castbar from the debuffs you put on your target?

    For example on my warrior.
    I want to have the castbar above my playerframe.
    But i want the debuff counters like sunder armor etc.. below the target fram.
    I don't see anyway to do this, and i dont get why these would be lined.

  • #1862

    Yes there is.

    When you go into Quartz configuration, go to the "Buff" section (Yes, odd name for debuffs) and go to the "Target" tab, once there there'll be a select box titled "Anchor Frame". A choice on that select box is "Free". If you choose that you can unlock it and drag it around, or alternatively use the X and Y sliders to move it.

    When I'm going to cast a spell the lag keep changing on the castbar. Like first it's 100ms, then 60ms, then 400ms etc... But when I hold over the computer button it says that my lag is around 70ms (home) and around 160(World). So is that a bug with quartc or?

  • #1855

    There is some latency in the game aswell, plus the network. Quartz figure out the response time from the last cast (i think) and give you a more precise ms and you can by a high chance cast the next spell when hitting the red area.

    My target cast icon has a shield around it. Is there a way to get rid of that shield icon?
