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.

    Just updated to the new version. Now whenever I cast something, the red part that displays my latency is on the left side in front of the cast instead of on the right side so I know when the cast completes. Does anyone know how to fix this back to the old way?
  • #1090
    There's an option in player called "embed", which does what you're saying. Disable it.
  • #1083
    Latest update had multiple wow crashes. ORA2 tank target bars were disabled when quartz active. Disabled quartz and crashes stopped and ORA2 tank target bars came back.

    Will try and get more info.
  • #1081
    Doesn't seem to work with the latest version of Quartz: Proc module either.
  • #1080
    Major Gripe here. This mod no longer works with Quartz Eclipse, nor does it show Eclipse cooldowns on its own. I will spend some more time working on it. If anyone knows of a work around please post it.
  • #1079
    Minor gripe which I think was there in the previous version: if you use the auto-centre option to centre the bar horizontally, it positions it as if you have the icon displayed whether you do or not. Any chance that the option can take the lack of icon into account?

    First, i want to thank the creator of Quartz for such a great job and a great add-on.

    I updated Quartz yesterday and it crashes when i set up the Buff bars... here is the error message:

    Hello, as druid balance I'm using eclipse and procs module.
    With the new version I was unable to see the timer for the solar and lunar ecplise and the CD. Any tips?
  • #1076
    How can I move the configuration window, because it overlaps Quartz bar?
  • #1074
    For those people who have commented about the ability to change the cast time decimal place, this option is no longer available, whether is has be forgotten or deliberatly omitted I have no idea, but is not availble in the current build. The best bet is to revert back to the build that had this option as I'm am sure Nevcairiel and Nymbia are aware of it and wait for them to respond and/or fix the 'problem'.
  • #1075
    damn :(
  • #1073
    do the barframes still have names like "QuartzCastBar" or "TargetCastBar" ?
    i have kgpanels bound to the castbar and need to fix them
  • #1180
    Poked around a bit in the LUA files and found them:
    - Quartz3CastBarPlayer
    - Quartz3CastBarPet
    - Quartz3CastBarTarget
    - Quartz3CastBarFocus
  • #1072
    Hi, just updated the addon, but i can't find the option for times in 0.01 sec format anymore instad of the decimal only.
    Is there anynthing specific i haven't seen to change time format to 10^(-2) accuracy for cast times?
