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.

    Knowing when your auto shot will go off is very important in a hunter's shot rotation in order to maximize damage and maintain efficiency. If you don't know what a shot rotation is... then no... your auto shot timer wouldn't be important to you at all...

    Does anyone have the same problem where your casting bar disappears when u spam another spell while casting one spell?
  • #194
    New release is working great. Thanks.

    Doesnt matter now, but for the last release it worked for some chars, and not others. Even when I only had Quartz on it still didnt work on some.
  • #193
    For me all are red on addons list and when i mouseover it says dependency missing:\
  • #189
    The Modules are showing up RED in my addon window-login screen. I have the latest d/l, deleted old SV files, and still not loading. Any help is appreciated, and THANK YOU for an awesome mod!

    I cannot see my latency bar area to know when i can recast the next spell. Changing all the colors do not work except for the background, which stays transparent. I have installed the most recent patch. What can i do?
  • #191
    Does anyone have a fix so I can get back my timer for my Focus buff bar timer? I can see the timer on the target buff bar but not on the Focus buff bar , which mean I have to keep my focus target in order to see the time . Any suggestions???
  • #190
    Seems to be a problem in the Buff module regarding Focus targets.

    Buff.lua (line 372):
    attempt to compare number with string
    : in function 'FocusUnit'

    Affecting previous versions as well as r7.

    TY!!! working beautifully for me :) Missed this addon a lot! for 1 day, haha thx again, you rock.
  • #185
    Anyone recommend an addon to use in place of quartz?
  • #187
    Maybe eCastingBar, but it currently has the same bug as what I mentioned below with Quartz.
  • #186
    This addon is a MUST for X-Perl users.
  • #180
    Some of you have gotten much further than me. I cant see any casting bar at all, and I also cant access the menu via /quartz so IDK what to do. I need my casting bar!!! zomg.
  • #179
    Quartz seems to have a problem with 3.0.2 where if you're in the process of casting a spell that has a cast time, and start spamming another spell before that cast is done, Quartz thinks the cast failed and takes away the bar. In reality, the cast continues but you just have no bar for the rest of it. (The builtin Blizzard bar handles the situation properly and doesn't remove the bar)
  • #181
    I've seen this issue too and it's not a localized issue with just this cast bar. The same bug is currently being experienced by ecastbar as well. Blizzard must of changed the way data is reported.
