Addons are powerful tools that can be used to both customize your gameplay experience, ranging from graphical overlays, replacement action bars, and unit/raid frames, to performance enhancements such as rotation helping spell reminders, buff/debuff tracking, popup reminders, and boss warnings. Here are some of the highly recommended and commonly used Prot Paladin addons, which are certainly not required to play, but can go a long way toward increasing the information available to you in combat or simply make for a more pleasant viewing experience.
Unlike Macros, managing Addons is done outside of the game, but our
How to Install and Maintain Addons Guide
will take you step-by-step through the process.
: These addons will show you timers of upcoming boss abilities and will warn you if you are standing in fire. I would personally recommend going with BigWigs and not to forget the dungeon module LittleWigs.
: WeakAuras 2 is an all-round addon that lets you track buffs, debuffs or dots and a lot of other things. You can even make a fury bar for example. I highly recommend it. You can easily import auras from other players.
There are so many varieties of WeakAuras that you can choose from but based on the most popular auras on
for Paladins. You can learn more about some of the most maintained and popular auras on the WeakAuras page.
: Details is the perfect addon to let you check the damage you and your raid member do. This addon is also useful to track interrupts, dispels or deaths.
