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.

    Hey, great addon :)

    I wonder, can you set a specific sound on Quartz, and have an ability to sound when your flame shock on the target is ending? I am an enh shaman. Ty in advance

  • #2107

    Just a quick question, does this addon support duel spec like Bartender or Shadowed Unit Frames Do when you switch specs it changes location to where you've set it.

    I just ask because when I switch between DPS and Healer my UI layout is different was wondering if this addon supports duel spec configuration. 

  • #2108

    you can make 2 different profile, when you change spec choose different profile.

  • #2106

    The GCD bar is not showing up when using Blink.

  • #2104

    Swing timer is totally broken for me DK, after a while it just stops working and disappears and no way to get it back unless I completely reset the addon. But even so after a while the proces repeats rendering this addon useless for the swing timer component, which is the only reason I still have Quartz installed.

    Hope you find the time to address this issue :'(

  • #2103

    Sooooo... this thing going to get updated so it displays the swing timer for DK's? Like wtf....

    player cast bar bug

    Hi. I have a problem with my player cast bar. Every time I cast something instead of showing the full thing it always only shows up a really small grey/dark bar right beneath it. Only the player cast bar does this, so I assumed it would be some misconfig on the "player" settings. Since I couldn't find what was wrong, I unnistaled the addon deleting all configs with it, and reinstalled it, and yet the problems remains.

    PS: Before I moved the bar from it's original place, it was working fine, now no matter where I put it it's all the same

  • #2100

    Quartz seems to do what I am looking for but the configuration is a bit confusing. For example, I would like to move and resize the bars for Black Arrow, Explosive Shot, etc., but the bars/spells are not listed by name and unlocking the bars does not allow me to move them when the spell bars are visable.  Also, is there a way to reset everything back to the default sizes and positions (to undo everything I've messed up)?

  • #2098

    When i use Claws of Shirvallah, Quartz doesn`t show gcd, when i use ordinary cat form it does. Thanks for attention :) 

  • #2097

    Is there a way to copy a default profile into a character profile?  I made initial settings changes under the default profile and I want to replicate it for my other characters. I don't see an option to import those settings over into a character profile. Can you help with this please?


  • #2096

    Is there any way to change the background texture? I want to use the same texture for the background that I use for the castbar (Armory).

    I can't use this addon because the effin menu doesn't move.  Until you fix it, I have no use for this.  Thanks!

  • #2093

    Fixed Duration!!
    It doesn't work! :(
    I love this addon, but this feature doesn't work. The buff bar will still disappear soon as buff times out.
