AdiCastBar is a small, simple casting bar addon.


  • Replace Blizzard casting bar,
  • Player casting bar with integrated latency and pushback display,
  • Channeling ticks for some spells,
  • Big target casting bar,
  • Global cooldown display,
  • Focus casting bar,
  • Pet casting bar,
  • Bars can be moved and slightly configured using the /adicastbar chat command.
  • Alternative bar texture can be selected by using SharedMedia and !SurfaceControl.
  • ConfigMode support.

What it does not do

  • Tradeskill merging (i.e. display several crafts as one),
  • Range coloring,
  • “Mirror” timers (remaining air when swiming underwater, exhaustion, feign death, ...),
  • Profile support,
  • Fancy configuration.

    Hello everyone!

    I would like to change Fonts and fonts size,how can i did this?

  • Avatar of kogasu kogasu Jul 12, 2011 at 16:14 UTC - 0 likes

    My only issue with this mod is that the font size is too small to see the name of spell being cast by my target. Perhaps you could make a config option for this? Edit: I did set a font size function in the layout.lua, but the target bar font is scaled smaller than the player font, and my meager code skill hasn't found the scaling yet. I would be happy with just a lua function I could edit for the target bar font. Btw, I love your mods, /salute and thank you for your time.

    So aside from having much fewer features, what's the incentive to use this? Is it more optimal/lightweight than other alternatives? Profiled enough to know it performs better etc?

    Mirror timers are such things as breathing bar (underwater), exhaustion bar (when swimming/flying too far from the shores), feign death bar.

    Merging tradeskills requires some complex guess I don't want to include there to keep it simple.

    mhh could you explain what mirror timers do? i thought all the time its needed for a castbar addon..isnt it? why no tradeskill merge?

    @Skylinee: no target name, no channeling ticks, no range coloring, no tradeskill merge, no focus nor pet bars (yet, but could be easily added), no mirror timers, no profile support.

    Any major difference between this and Castbars? Like CPU/Memory etc. Using it atm, but looking for a *really* lightweight alternative to Quartz for example.
