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.

    tl;dr: I can confirm this too. As a temporary fix you can set quartz to not hide the Blizzard timers by unchecking "Hide Blizz Mirror Bars".

    wall of text:
    The bug even killed me during a quest where I had to bring up ship parts from the seabed.
    I hid my interface (ALT+Z) to see the objects better and it stopped the mirror bar. I didn't realize this in time. When I checked my progress at 9/10, Quartz reported over 2 minutes of breath left, so I decided to go for the last ship part quite a ways further down.
    When I started taking damage I immediately drank a swim speed potion, and rushed to the surface. I even used my emergency health potion, but it wasn't quite enough. I died one yard below sea level. So close!

    That brings up the Blizzard bars, but those have no timer on them so it's really irritating still (and the Quartz bar itself still dies even when Blizzard's bar is up). Oh well. Perhaps a future update will fix this. Other than that I've not had any real problems with Quartz thankfully. :)
  • #1632
    How do I enlarge the spell bars? Example: the little timer on that appears on the target when you cast frostbolt etc. In the screenshot for Quartz, I'm speaking of the bars below the casting bar
  • #1631
    Not sure if this is a quartz issue or something else; but since cata has been out iv been playing my main toon and when i logged on my alt today all my bars are slightly to the left. If i correct them on my alt they are moved to the right on my mains screen since they share the same quartz profile. Anyone else encounter this issue?
  • #1630
    Great addon here, just downloaded it and it is fab; haven't found any problems yet and I was playing with a friend the other day, he was on his Boomkin and using Quartz, didn't have any problems.
  • #1628
    Can i replace standart buffs by buff bar from this addon in specified place? If yes - help me, i cannot understand how.
  • #1629
    ***standart player buffs
  • #1626
    I guess Castbars is the next best alternative?
  • #1627
    Yeah, I just finally switched to CastBars the other day. It seems to be working out just fine so far.
  • #1625
    Well, it's been over 3 months since this excellent mod has been updated. There are many buffs that will not show etc. Rip Quartz.
  • #1624
    Is there anyway to hide some of the buff I apply to the target? I'm a hunter and I don't want Quartz to show me hunters mark or Serpent sting but, I want it to show me me the explosive shot tics.

    Can I edit it somehow?
  • #1623
    If you look at the screenshot that is on this page, I am trying to configure my Quartz, BUT I can't seem to do any changes to the top right side spell bars. I would like to increase the size of those bars...can anyone help? THANKS

    Is there any way to change the backround of the swing timer? Black is hard to see in dark areas.

    Is there any way to get target of target cast bars on Quartz? I've been noticing this is a pretty sore deficiency, because otherwise the only way to see boss/mob cast bars is by targeting them instead of the tank (I'm a healer). Either I'm completely missing something in the configurations or it doesn't exist?
