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.

    Hi, I just noticed the Spell Rank Style options aren't working. Just thought you'd like to know. Love the mod.

    How about asking AeZay if you can port some of the flight module code from AzCastbar..? It already includes the flight tracking code so it would ideally remove the need for depending on external addons for flight time info and should make maintaining easier imo.

    Thank you! Everything seem to work perfectly as intended now.
    Just one thing, off topic actually: are there any plans by anyone to resurrect Cowtip the same way you have resurrected Quartz? Cos it is one of the few last Rock-dependant addons i'm using, with FuBar modules being the other couple, and that window really-really freaks me out.

    Since FuBar_ToFu was Ace2-based, it was no longer compatible with the Ace3 Quartz. Honestly, i think InFlight was discontinued, but FlightMap should still work.

    You can find it on CurseForge: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/flight-map/

    I'll try to test the Flight module in combination with that, maybe try to come up with a way to still support FuBar_ToFu, if its still alive.

    PS: It looks like ToFu hasn't been updated since 2008, so i won't be doing that afterall..

    Flight module doesn't seem to work for me anymore. I do not have FlightMap or InFlight installed, previously the info was hooked from FuBar_ToFu. If it is not supported by the new version, could you please give me a hint where should i get those 2 addons from.

    I can't seem to get this to install correctly. I downloaded the file but it seems to be trying to run with Ace-2 still. I can't get the procs timer to function. Any suggestion? I erased all the old files but no luck. I also get all the folders not just one.

    This is sweet - great look. Thanks.

    I made the mistake of downloading right before a raid and it did not keep my old config.

    After I cast something, the cast bar pops back up after fading out. Is this something I need to turn off to get it to stop doing that or is it something else?

    You might want to put in your change log that all our settings will be thrown out...

    Yes, you should remove everything from the old version, and only have the new Quartz folder. There are no seperate folders anymore.

    For the settings, sadly they cannot be imported. Quartz moved from Ace2 to Ace3, and their Saved Variables are not compatible.
