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.

    Suggestion: Energy Tick, like the swing bar or something. Would be lovely. ;)

    Whenever I target myself and cast any spell, the target bar appears as well as the player bar, Is there a way to disable this, not making the target bar show if you target yourself.

    Great addon if that works :).

    Edit: Another thing, the mirror bar has no "border" option.

    I love Quartz and most things about it but I mostly downloaded it for the reason of the swingbar (dunno why just figured it would be handy) inorder to find out that it doesn't work while dualwielding? (Atleast not on shamans) but as soon as I put on a shield it instantly starts to working... any fix for this or anyone ecountering the same problem? And is there any way to change it by doing something in the LUA?

    Gahzar: I believe you are talking about the weapon swing bar, which shows an estimated time between your weapons. Simple as that :)

    Karnye: Type /Quartz and go down to the Player tab. Uncheck 'Lock', and you can drag the cast bar to whereever you want it.

    After downloading the mod, i now have a mini version of the cast bar at the bottom of my screen, its really small but goes through the casts of everything just like my main cast bar, but i cant seem to figure out what it is, i made sure to disable blizzard castbar in the quartz commands, but its still here..Any ideas?

  • #49

    Is the buff bar movable, or is it locked onto the cast bar?

    I can't find anywhere to unlock it and move it.

    I would love to get rid of CT_Mod's buff icons and show Quartz"s buff bars up by my mini-map.

  • #48

    goddamn nice addon ^^

  • #47

    yyeeeaaaahhh.... so if you read through the posts, alot of that gets answered. lol. And the focus bar is for your focus target....

    Dunno whatcha mean by "tabs desperately need description as to what the tab is for." tho

    FYI people: Theres the official quartz discussion thread.... go put up suggestions there. ;)

    I just started using this mod, and to change things around, I just got confused. I couldnt even figure how to move the mod. I thought I figured it out with the "Focus" tab, unclicked the lock option, moved what i thought to be the cast bar around, but it did nothing.

    Very frustrating, the options are hard to understand for beginners. Trying to find another addon that does the same job, but with a easier options tab to read.

    Edit: Figured out how to move the main cast bar, tabs desperately need description as to what the tab is for. Still have no idea what the "focus" tab is for. Cheers.

    Could you provide information about how to set up custom timers? I'd love a tick to go to count how long until my mana regen kicks in, but I can't seem to figure it out.

  • #44

    I really love this mod on my shaman. Just curious, those little timers like when i cast frost shock that show how long it lasts, could we add one for the totems? so like it shows a timer when I lay down my Grounding Totem how long its there for? It would be a great addition so I can keep an eye on how long until i need to relay them :D Thanks again for the great mod

  • #43

    under the buff header theres a target header. all the options you should need are there ;)

  • #42

    Ok, I have found where to move everything but the dots-timer. where do i do that?

  • #41

    this mod is beautiful for mages.

    Put every spell into a macro with /stopcasting in front of /cast <spellname> and cast when your casting progress reaches the greyed out area, and you'll have 10% more dps

  • #40

    Okay, thanks man
