I’ve done it. Oh yes I have.
Gearscore is now… uninstalled. /cheer!
I’ve also uninstalled the following add-ons:
- Forte (and all it’s associated modules)
- Deadly Boss Mods
- FuBar and it’s assorted modules (MoneyFu, DurabilityFu, GuildFu, etc)
Basically anything that serves no real function or offers far more functionality than I need was culled.
For now, I’m keeping the following mods:
I love this mod. It’s the easiest and most intuitive bar mod that I’ve seen, and the ability to move/resize all the bars is invaluable. I particularly like the fade option for the bars with my heals, they stay out of view until I absolutely need them.
A lighterweight Auction House mod than the old favorite Auctioneer, it’s not as inflated as Auctioneer due to the fact that it scans items only as you search. You get much less lag with Auctionator, so it’s a keeper.
Shadowed Unit Frames:
I actually was going to try to go with the default unit frames, but I couldn’t do it, mostly because they cannot be moved around the screen. Of all the various unit frame add-ons out there, Shadowed is my favorite. Again, it’s simple, super-lightweight, easy to configure, and doesn’t have a million extra modules eating up memory.
I have to have an all-in-one bag. Enough said.
I love this mod, particularly if I’m doing heavy Auction House activity. It allows you to pull all incoming mail, items, and gold with one click, rather than individually clicking each item.
This replaced my old FuBar and MoneyFu combo. It’s a small button attached to your mini-map, and when you click on it, it opens a separate window with all of your profits and expenditures broken out by category. It’ll also show how much you’ve made by Session, Day, and Week, and how much gold you have across all your characters. It’s a seriously fantastic add-on, and one that I wouldn’t want to do without.
This is the other must-have add-on in my arsenal. It’s a huge timesaver as it lets me see my alt’s professions, banks, guild banks, profession windows of guild mates, any alts that have mail that’s about to expire, and so, so much more. If you are serious about alts, you need this add-on.
There are three more add-ons that are currently on the chopping block, waiting for a decision: Decursive, Recount, and Carbonite. Decursive is useful in some situations, I’m just not sure how often I’ll actually use it. Recount is helpful for spotting problems with DPS, but considering how I’m wanting to shift away from over-analyzation and competitiveness, it might be better to cut it. I like Carbonite’s quest tracker better than the Blizzard version, but overall, it’s probably bulkier than it’s worth.
