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.

    Ditto on the focus bars. Its the mirrored focus timers, I believe. Anyway, they're not functioning.

    Great work, btw~

    One of the better addons out there.

    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:

    I am out of options, and really need help with the following mods:


    The problem is as follows:
    Clicking the addons button on the character screen, shows the above mentioned mods, with all it's modules in RED, saying dependency missing, and as the dependency, written the name of the mod ie. Pitbull. The confusing thing is all the people for which the mods are actually working, since I've tried absolutely everything, deleting "Interface" and "WTF" countless times, and going from scratch, with no difference at all :( I have seen 3 or 4 posts with the same problem, with no response...

    Please help me fix this issue, I haven't played the game at all since the patch, because without those 3 mods, WoW just isn't WoW. Thanks for creating them, and thanks in advance for the replies (if I get any),

    The focus buff bars don't work. The target ones work fine, though.
  • #205
    Cant see cast bar and /quartz does nothing.
  • #207
    I cant get anything on the mod to work. When I open up the options, only things showing are colors and profile. In the add ons options on the character select screen, all the different options are colored red.
  • #206
    Debuffs on the target don't appear and channeled spells disappear while casting.
  • #204
    Periodic damage don't seem to appear anymore, anyone know anything about this?
  • #203

  • #200
