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.

    Would be great to have the config integrated into the "Interface" options instead of the old "rock" type config. When I go to choose a bar tex for example, it goes off the screen and I can't get to the rest of them in the list - doesn't scroll.

    I've noticed the savage roar isn't showing anymore, and i tried installing older versions to check it. Did Blizz change anything about it that prevents quartz from showing its status?

    Quite a few people and I are interested in the capability of parenting other items (mainly KGPanels) to the QuartzMirror bar. Sadly this is impossible in game currently, could you possibly try to make this possible for us? Thanks

    After comparing lua's of Quartz and AzCastBar I "fixed" my problem with GCD (im not using swing timer, as warlock). Usually "Find Herbs" is used for CGD watch spell, but from 3.1 it doest get GCD on spell use. So I just set "Fel Armor" as primary spell, and "Immolate" as secondary. Few uses of this spells for updates to become live and now.. i'm again with working GCD timer (only for casts, radar changes dont show gcd, but should use both "casts" for detect to prevent errors when 1 school is blocked). Hope it will help someone.

    For those with the missing GCD bar or swing bar, have a look at a mod called AzCastBar. It has the same functionality as Quartz, except it works.
