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.

    Same error here...
  • #228
    I can't seem to display the swing timer, there is also no option for it in the config menu, unless I am blind?

    There's a problem with the latest version (r7-release). If I write a macro which activates my trinkets before I cast a fireball, and I press the button really fast, Quartz doesn't show the castbar constantly. It always appears and disappears again.

    /use trinket 1
    /use trinket 2
    /cast fireball

    I hope there's a fix for this soon, since it worked before the patch. When I put the /use trinket commands on Fireblast (No cast-time) then it works fine...

    I am having something sort of the same problem. If I cast a spell and then try to cast another spell before the first one is finished my cast bar disappears.

    Thanks in advance.

    used to work so that when you turned on the option to show the timer bars for debuffs on a target, it would only show the debuffs you applied, but now it shows all the debuffs from all players.

    Is there any way to set it the way it used to be? I used it for timers for my stuns (i'm a rogue) and having all the extra timers from other players is messin with me. Thanks.

    Same problem here, was very sad to remove this addon :( Hopefully a fix soon, I miss my Quartz!

    Getting this error when I'm trying to get a buff cooldown for the focus frame. Using ag_unitframes vs. r652 as my unit frames.

    whenever i try to post the code fix for the not showing up issue it hijacks the previous post!

    i give up

    so... the last time i posted it somehow hijacked someone elses post so lets try this again:
    for those of you having problems getting it to show up.

    if you go into the addon folder there is a file called "modules.xml"
    right-click it and hit "edit"
    there are 14 lines that need a small edit with names of the modules loaded into quartz, you need to add Quartz_ to them:

  • #217
    Would it be possible to get a version of this with all the modules packaged as actual modules instead of individual addons? I'm trying to clean up my addons folder to make it easier to find what I'm actually using, and addons like Quartz and Pitbull are really cluttering everything up.

    Right now, I've moved things around so they're all inside the Quartz folder, but I'm not looking forward to doing that every time it gets updated.

    ugh! it did it again!
    heres the rest of what it should say:
