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.

    Is it possible to show duration timer text on the global cooldown bar? The swing timer has the option, but not the gcd menu.
  • #790
    Can someone tell me if it's possible to show my combo points with Quartz (rogue/cat druid). It'll be so convenient...
  • #785
    How can I make it so that when I cast Mend Pet, it shows up under Pet. Currently I need to target my pet for it to show.

    Is there a way to change the profile via chat? like "/quartz profile choose MyProfile" ?
  • #792
    My question: Could you please update the version available on WowInterface? Also, I've having some issues with 'focus' and 'target' casting bars. They have a funny outline around the edges, even when the cast is interrupt able.

    [Momro]: Is there a way to change the profile via chat? like "/quartz profile choose MyProfile" ?

    You could install Reflux, a profile addon, available on

    As others have said, the r23 version doesn't work reliably for DKs. I found, however, that by downloading the r13 version and copying the GCD.lua file from Quartz_GCD over the r23 version, then the GCD bar went back to working perfectly for the DK. I haven't tested this yet, but assume it would also fix the problems other classes have when they are casting instant spells, since the r13 version relied on the ActionBar updating rather then on the server sending GCD information.

    Having an issue with the mirror bar in battlegrounds and arena games. It seems to be counting down much faster than it should because it will start when the 1 minute mark is announced in chat but by the 30 second mark the timer is down to 24 seconds (so in that 30 seconds it ran 36 seconds).

    I'm not sure what is causing it since none of the other timers for Quartz and none of the timers for my other mods are doing this.
