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.

Tag as 3.2.3


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

    GCD Suggestion

    Suggest there is an option to display spell name and target for instant spells within the GDC option.

    This could be distinguished from a normal cast bar by showing the cast bar appearance at the "cast completed" frame for the duration of the GCD.

    Related concept, for a spell that had a lower cast time than GDC but which had a cast time (if any such spells exist) the cast bar could persist until the end of GCD if this option was enabled.

    Love this addon but got 2 requests if they arent already in and i dont found them.

    1. Will there be an option in the future to fill the bars from right to left?

    2. Cant adjust the width of the Swing bar (same for the GCD bar), atleast there should be one since we can detach it from the players castbar.

    Thanks so far!

    Quartz Profile Switch?

    Is there a way to make Quartz change profiles as I switch specs? I have a pally healer/tank and I really need the cast bars to be in different places depending on the spec I'm in.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

  • #2076

    Seems to be broken with the new patch, getting a hell of a lot of errors :(

  • #2075

    Timers are going nuts on ICC bosses including and after the gunship. Attached is a screen shot of it and it just keeps spamming.


  • #2074

    Is there a strata option I'm missing, or could you add one to the bar template? CastBarTemplate.lua line 1018,     bar:SetFrameStrata("MEDIUM"), I always have to edit this to HIGH so it overlays the unit frames I have my cast bars sitting on.

  • #2073

    Having an issue where disabled bars (pet and focus in my case) leave their anchors on the screen after being locked.
