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

    Hi, can you add an option to see latency on target's castbar? Thx!

    Hi, just like to ask. When I use quartz and target another player, that player will ahve their buff duration displayed at the edge of the Quartz timer, how do I remove this?
  • #1598
    The buff "Arcane Missiles" and the debuff "Arcane Blast" now shows up in the mirror category. How do I fix this? I can't find any blacklist or "select effects" options for the mirror.
  • #1596
    Just one quick thing, when on a dual-wielding character, the swing timer doesn't appear. However if I unequip the off-hand weapon, the swing timer will appear. Is there any way to have the swing timer so that it works for both weapons? =)

    Otherwise, love it. Thanks! ^^

    Continually getting the following error:

    3534x Waterfall-1.0-90125 (Quartz):3383: attempt to index global 'this' (a nil value)


  • #1597
    I don't think Quartz has used Waterfall in ages. You probably need to update by deleting your Quartz folder(s) in Interface\Addons

    Found a bug, or rather something no longer needed, it seems that casting Heroic Strike effects the swing timer bar, because it use to be based on next melee, but now its just an instant melee attack. This bug probly effects other similar abilities that were changed like maul and rune strike.

    Good mod by the way, very useful
  • #1591
    Love the addon!

    Is there any plan to ever allow GCD and Swing bars to have custom widths? When I line up my cast bars with my unitframes and such, I take the icon into consideration for the overall size of the castbar. But since the swing and GCD bars seem to be locked to the same width as the player castbar, they're always too short and look strange on my UI.
  • #1589
    This is a great addon and I'm disappointed it's no longer useful. When 4.0 went live and Warlocks have to track ticks on all dots, not just channeled ones, I had to stop using Quartz. Please make a function to track ticks on all dots.
  • #1588
    just made the account for curse only for this question: is there a way to reverse casting bars, spell to start from right and ending to left. If not, it can't be hard to do it and many people have already asked/requested it so, please hear us!
  • #1586
    pls fix the ticks of drain life and drain soul
    thanks ;)
  • #1585
    Don't go to that link!

    Would love to use this addon for the GCD but seeing two issues (with 3.04 or the latest alpha 3.0.4-1-g36a3f6e):

    a) on new login or reloadui I have to go to the GCD and unlock/lock in order to re-activate the GCD bar (alpha is @ 100%)
    b) if I do multiple reloadui's, it taints my Bartender buttons (messes up the graphics of some of them). Remove this addon only and I can reloadui forever with no problems.

    Anyone else seeing this?
  • #1582
    Feature request,
    I can't grab my Quartz profiles from another addon, to use them. Is Quartz in the "global namespace"? Or could you make DB name and the addon name to match each other ... (QuartzDB vs Quartz3DB)
    Thanks :)
