How Do I Install A World of Warcraft Addon?
My friends have all these cool features and stuff on their World of Warcraft interface screen and mine is just plain. What are these and how do I install them so I can use them on my computer.
What it sounds like to me is that your friends have WoW interface addons installed. Addons give you a lot more features and allows you to do many things that you can not do with just the basic World of Warcraft interface.
Now that is cleared up it really is pretty simple to install them on your copy of the game.
First things first, you must find out which addon you want to install. This really is the hardest part of the whole process as there are many, many different World of Warcraft addons that you can use. The tool I use for this first part is probably the biggest WoW addon site on the internet….Curse Gaming.
Next thing of course is to download the addon you have chosen and I have found that saving the addon zip file into your World of Warcraft directory can help you keep them organized. I actually save mine into:
C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons
After getting it saved you basically just have to unzip the addon file and it will add directories to your Addons folder which hold the actual addons. That basically installs the addon for use.
Just go in game and load it up to check out all the features of the addons you just installed. Have fun with it and I am playing around with video so I might get a video made for this to make it easier to see how it’s done.
