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.

    I'm not sure I can find the option to let me fill the bars on the opposite direction. (For Target or Player bars).
  • #1569

    Is Quartz now a one folder add-on? I just returned to game after being out nearly 6 months, and my old Quartz had a bunch of folders by class. Those seem to be causing errors now?
  • #1563
    Not sure if this has been posted previously.

    Since latest patch I've had problems where the castbar disapears during the cast eventhough I still keep them as target and the cast goes through, is this quartz related or is it just an bug for castbars in general since patch?

    Thanks in advance!
  • #1566

  • #1576

    Where do I turn off the Timers on my buttons that I have hot keyed?
  • #1556
    Addons loaded: TooManyAddons and OptionHouse

    On login, I get one error. I deleted my SavedVariables/Quartz.lua and when logging back in it exploded with errors. First two, then a total of 12.

    Would quoting any of those errors be useful?
  • #1561
    Meh. I just replaced Quartz with AzCastBar.

    Latency"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"

    I have a problem with the Latency instead to have it at the end like you can in the screenshot I get it at the begening of my casting bar .Someone can tell me if this a bug or how I can set it properly please ?
  • #1552
    just did a few more tests and found out that it doesnt happen every time. After i reloged it was gone and the next time i loged in it was back =/ cant find any pattern to this behavior, maybe someone can check if im the only one experiencing this. It only happens with channeled spells i believe were the castbar doesnt fill up with the cast but empties over the time of the cast
  • #1551
    i have a problem with the latency bar and the cast spark, it seems for normal spells it is working fine, but for channeled spells the latency bar overlaps the casting spark, changing the alpha of the bar wont change anything, i made a screenshot:

    hope there is a way to fix it
