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

    Awesome addon!  Thanks.  I know it hasn't been updated since September, but I'm not having any issues running this addon.  All is working good here.

    I think some people might want to look into doing a fresh install of WoW and all the addons your using.  Maybe there is a conflict with some of the addons your all using.

    Friend told me Gnosis is a good replacement, but after messing with it for 10-20 minutes I went back to Quartz.  Maybe I'll try Gnosis again once I feel ambitious, but until Quartz stop working all together I'll keep using it.

    I don't know why some of you are having problems with this addon.  You might have to look at some of the other addons your running.  I'm telling ya Quartz works great.

    Hi, Im getting an error with quartz when I try to change my talents/glyphs... 
    When i deselect an active talent, a blizzard frame pops up saying "the addon Quartz is bloquing blizzard's interface... "(I play in spanish, do't know the correct translation) I click the button "disable" and quartz disables and my talents/glyphs work properly once again...

    Help plz, I would like to stop using this wonderfull add-on, but its really bothering to do /reload every other BG/instance/arena...

    Thank you!

    My cast bar sometimes disappears (as if the spell was canceled) while casting/channeling in movement using the Kil'Jaeden's Cunning Warlock talent.
