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.

    Any chance of adding a "Dual profile" option, so i could choose a different profile for my offspec, I like to set things up differently for my healing classes. I know a few other addons that have this feature, not sure how hard it would be to implement.

    I have one question about this mod.  I have the debuff and buff timers set up on it but they are so freaking small.  I have their hieght set to max and I can still barely read the timers on them.  Are they designed to be this small or am I missing and option?

  • #2041

    does anyone know how to show the timer bars even out of combat?

    it would make it easier for me to track whether i have applied bleeds and stuff, i used to use addons such as bad kitty where i could see them if not applied.

    If you enable the mirror bar and attach it to your castbar it will show up even if your cast bar isn't visible. This might require using Quartz Procs along with Quartz, I haven't logged in to check.

    warlock global cooldown bars, is it possible to make the little spark bars bigger? im new to this addon and was wondering if there is somewhere that explains how to use it exactly.

    I think if you added tracking your personal buffs on one side of the castbar, and enemy debuffs on the other side (changeable) then it would help many people including myself. I have to use NeedToKnow to track certain buffs, and it would be so much better if it was small and right where my enemy debuffs are. Just a suggestion, it would clean up my UI so much! :) <3

    You can do that with the mirror bars if you install Quarts Procs (another addon). On my cast bar I have my buffs on the left, such as Ice Barrier and Invocation, and on the right is whatever is on my current target, such as Frostbolt, Nether Tempest, and Deep Freeze. It is a bit tricky tracking down exactly what to enable and where to put it, but look in the mirror bar settings, then check the player and target buffs and debuffs.
