MookUI - An AddOns Compilation for "World of Warcraft"

NOTE: the MookUI Compilation has not been publicly updated since WoW Patch 2.4.3 (July 2008), and it's unlikely that it ever will. Much of the information on this page regarding individual AddOns may still be useful, though, so I'm leaving the page up as-is.

Compiled and maintained by: Mook (Spytte, of Steamwheedle Cartel)
Current Version: 08-22-2008 (Blizzard patch 2.4.3 compatible)

Introduction & Welcome (top)

Thanks for downloading the MookUI collection of AddOns. These are the AddOns that I use myself, currently about 100+, and for the most part they play together very nicely. They definitely increase my enjoyment of the game, and I hope you will find them just as useful.

I remember when I first learned about AddOns after using the default Blizzard interface for many, many months - I was excited by the prospect of being able to customize the game experience, but was completely overwhelmed by the sheer volume and variety of AddOns available; I was also deathly afraid that I would somehow 'break' something, or mess my game up beyond repair.

I'm here to tell you - you can use AddOns if you want to! Installing and configuring AddOns for the game is not overly hard - if you can download a file from the internet, unzip it, and move it around on your machine, you can install your own AddOns (and if you can't do those things now, you can learn to). The community is very active and very helpful - questions can always be asked at the official Blizzard UI forums, and I also maintain my own MookUI support forum. So back up your WTF and Interface folders (always, always, always, just in case!), and start digging in!

It's important to note that I am NOT the author of any of these AddOns, just a very grateful end user. I offer a truly sincere Thank You! to all those authors who have spent so much time and energy enhancing the game for all of us - please reward their efforts by giving praise, encouragement, and donations whenever able.

Is the MookUI Right for Me?

To help you decide if this collection is a good fit for you:

There are a couple different ways to use the AddOns from MookUI:

Again, thanks for downloading - I hope this collection helps you improve both your interface and your game experience.

Installation (top)

(see also this brief guide at

The MookUI compilation contains current versions of roughly 100+ AddOns, listed below.

There are two separate folders in the downloaded .zip file - 'Interface' contains the actual AddOns, 'WTF' contains copies of the AddOn configuration files for use at a resolution of 1440x900 (widescreen) and a UI Scale of 0.64. If you are using different settings, you may want to use just the 'Interface' folder and leave the 'WTF' alone.

Also, there are a lot of AddOns included in this compilation - it's likely that you will not want or need all of them. If it seems a little overwhelming trying to configure them all, it might be easier to just enable a few at a time, then add more as they are configured to your liking. Also see Which AddOns Should I Use? for more information on choosing which AddOns to enable/disable.


I cannot stress this enough. It only takes a few seconds, and in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, or if you simply decide you don't want to use these AddOns, it is much, much easier to restore your original settings than try to recreate them from scratch. All of the folders referred to in this ReadMe are inside your main "World of Warcraft" folder (where you have the game installed), usually something like:

C:\Games\World of Warcraft\WTF\
C:\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\

To install the MookUI AddOns, unzip the file "" (the actual file will include a date, like "") to your hard drive - inside you will find two folders (in addition to the "MookUI_readme.txt" file, and an internet shortcut to this document):

My login name is 'Pikachu', and I play a character named 'Joeblow' on the Medivh server. I download the "" file and unzip it to my computer.

My final folder structure would look like this:

C:\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\**all the MookUI AddOns**
C:\Games\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\PIKACHU\Medivh\Joeblow\

Setup (top)

Which AddOns Should I Use?

Because MookUI encompasses so many popular AddOns, affecting nearly every facet of the interface and gameplay, you may want to customize which AddOns you enable and disable for your character(s).

Using the Interface and WTF Folder (top)

(NOTE: the following screenshots are from a prior version of MookUI; most of the steps remain the same, however, and this section should still be useful in setting up).

From the Character Select screen, click the 'AddOns' button and check 'Load out of date AddOns'. Then from the list, disable any AddOns you won't be using (see the Which AddOns Should I Use? section for more help with this). Finally, click the 'Enter World' button - your screen should look something like this:

To adjust the resolution and UI Scale, hit 'ESC' and go to the 'Video Settings'; choose a resolution of 1440x900, check the 'Use UI Scale' box, and drag the scale slider all the way left to 0.64. Hit 'Okay' and the game will reload - your screen should then look like this:

To get rid of the Recap window, click the 'X' on its title bar - you can reopen it at any time by typing "/recap" (NOTE: Recap is no longer included with MookUI as of version 03-26-2008). To see all the Bartender3 bars, type "/bt3 lock" - you can then reposition the Stance Bar (or any others) by dragging them, then type "/bt3 lock" again to lock them in place. Here's the screen with all bars shown:

The top and bottom FuBars may not be as wide as the screen yet - to drag them wider, position the cursor over the right-hand end of the bar until the cursor becomes a sword - you can drag the bars even if they are not visible, as long as you keep the left button held down - here's a picture of the top FuBar before resizing, and the bottom FuBar after resizing:

To move the Omen threat frame, click 'Omen' on the bottom FuBar and it will appear - you can then drag it wherever you like:

And that's it! You may need to tweak a few AddOns as you go, but for the most part you're done. Your screen should look like this:

If you do have any problems, be sure to check the Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.) and Known Issues. You can also post to the MookUI Support Forum if your question isn't covered in the ReadMe.

Using the Interface Folder Only (top)

(NOTE: the following screenshots are from a prior version of MookUI; most of the steps remain the same, however, and this section should still be useful in setting up).

Without using the included WTF folder you'll need to configure the AddOns manually. It is entirely possible to recreate the look of the MookUI as seen in various screenshots by configuring things yourself (after all, that's how I created the MookUI in the first place!), but it takes a little work.

Assuming you're already using a widescreen resolution and/or UI Scale of 0.64, your screen should look something like this when you first log in - don't panic, it looks like a huge mess but it's pretty simple to clean up:

To get rid of the Recap window, click the 'X' on its title bar - you can reopen it at any time by typing "/recap" (NOTE: Recap is no longer included with MookUI as of version 03-26-2008); to close the WIM options window, click the outermost 'X' on its window - you can reopen it at any time by typing "/wim":

Before closing the SmartBuff v2.2a Options window, check the 'Hide action button' box and the 'Hide minimap button' box; then drag the window that reads "Demo Text Font: MailTextFontNormal" to where you want the SmartBuff alerts to appear; finally, click the 'FS' button to cycle through alert fonts and sizes until you find the one you want, then click the 'X' on the options window to close it - you can reopen it at any time by typing "/sb menu":

To make a little "room", drag the 'GotWood?' frame, the TradeDispenser bar, and the XPBarNone bar out of the way:

Next, drag your PitBull Player unit frame down out of the way; click it once to target yourself, then drag your Target and Target of Target unit frames down as well. There are a lot of PitBull options, so you can customize your unit frames to your heart's content once everything else is good to go:

Now drag the Item Cooldowns and CDT frames down out of the way - you can Alt-left click to display test bars on each, position them where you want, then Alt-left click again to hide the test bars, and, finally, Shift-left click to hide the frame anchors:

To hide the SWStats frame in the center of the screen (the one with the red header bar), click the 'X' (NOTE: SWStats is no longer included with MookUI as of version 01-04-2008).:

Then, drag the ElkBuffBars frame where you want them ("Buffs & Tracking"), right-click the anchor bar, and uncheck the 'Show Anchor' box:

Drag the CooldownTimer alert frame ("%s ready!") where you want it, then Shift-left click to lock and hide:

For Decursive, drag the Decursive frame where you want it, then click the 'X' to hide - you can reopen it at any time by typing "/dcrshow". Then drag the Decursive Miniunitframe by Alt-left clicking the small blue box above it:

Drag the Loot Monitor and Loot Rolls anchors where you want them, then Right-click and uncheck 'Show Anchor' to hide:

To clear away some of the Minimap icons: type "/wim" and uncheck 'Show Minimap icon' to remove WIM; type "/mi2", on the General tab uncheck 'Show Minimap Button', check 'Instead of MobInfo-Tooltip use the Game-Tooltip', and on the Tooltip tab check 'Press ALT Key for Mob info'; type "/rock" and choose 'AddOn Preferences' from the dropdown menu, then uncheck 'Show Minimap Icon'; finally, drag the DAGAssist icon wherever you want:

Move the minimap down so it isn't overlapping with the top FuBar; to configure further, type "/rock" and choose SimpleMinimap from the dropdown menu:

There are quite a lot of FuBar plugins that don't need to be shown on the FuBar in order to function, and can be configured through "/rock" instead ... I usually choose 'Hide Plugin' for all the following: AuldLangSyne, Bartender3, Bayi's Extended Quest Log, BigBrother, ClassTimer, ClearFont2, CooldownTimers2, CyCircled, Decursive, DrDamage, ElkBuffBars, and oRA2. Then, type "/rock", choose FuBar from the dropdown menu, and check 'Auto-hide bottom panels' and 'Auto-hide top panels':

To change the action buttons skin, type "/rock", choose CyCircled from the dropdown menu, and change the Skin setting to 'LiteStep: XLT'. Type "/bt3 lock" to show all the Bartender3 bars, right-click on any bar to get its individual options, move bars where you want them, then type "/bt3 lock" again to relock:

Finally, configure the XPBarNone to your liking (type "/rock, choose XPBarNone from the dropdown menu) and move it where you want, then right-click on the GotWood frame to lock it:

That's it, you're done! It's a little rough around the edges and will need a bit more individual polish, but it should be good enough as a starting base.

If you do have any problems, be sure to check the Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.) and Known Issues. You can also post to the MookUI Support Forum if your question isn't covered in the ReadMe.

Known Issues (top)

Bug reports, suggestions, support, and F.A.Q. can be found on the MookUI forum at:

Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.) (top)

Questions can be posted to the MookUI forum at:, and may be included in future revisions of this document.

Q. What is that squeaky voice saying 'fatality' sometimes?
A. This is the notification sound from the BugSack AddOn, telling you that an error message was intercepted and sent to the BugSack. To disable the sound, type "/bs mute" in the chatbox. You can also use your own .WAV sound file by renaming it 'error.wav' and overwriting the one found in the BugSack folder.

Q. How can I move/change the action bars?
A. Type "/bt3 lock" in the chatbox to show all Bartender3 bars - you can right-click on individual bars to access more options.

Q. How do I disable the extra confirmation when trying to spend more than 1 gold at the Auction House?
A. This is from the Fence AddOn - to disable the confirmation check, type "/fence bw toggle" in the chatbox.

Q. How can I see what I have in my bank without being at the bank?
A. The addon ArkInventory takes care of this - on the normal Keybindings menu set a key for "Toggle Bank".

Q. Where can I download the most current copy of the MookUI compilation?
A. The most current information about the MookUI can always be found at:
It is also maintained at the following mirrors:

Q. Where do I find other AddOns that aren't in the MookUI compilation (or updates for AddOns that are)?
A. Here are the main websites that I watch for new and updated AddOns:

tabWoW Interface:

Another excellent resource for AddOns discussion and support is the official World of Warcraft "UI & Macros" forum:

Donations (top)

Thanks to anyone actually reading this far down into the ReadMe - you are part of an elite select few!

Due to a number of unfortunate circumstances, I find myself the past few years materially poorer than I have ever been in my life (zero income for well over a year). Not poor as in, "Aww man, there are two new PC games coming out next month and I can only afford one", or, "I would've preferred the 400gb hard drive, but I had to settle for the 250gb one"; but poor as in, "Cool, there's bread and milk in the kitchen, too bad now we don't have a phone", and "Oh, hi Mr. Repo Man! Let me get those keys for ya - do you know Emilio Estevez?".

I tell you this, a compete stranger, not to elicit pity, but simply to let you know my situation. Like most net-folks, I've supported a few of my favorite online sites/webcomics/addons/whatever over the years - but usually only when I was able to throw, say, $10 or $20 their way. It would have never occurred to me to donate just a dollar or two, because "What difference would a dollar make?"

In my case, just a dollar really does make a difference. Over the course of a month, that can help pay my WoW subscription, or the hosting fee for TheMook.Net, or even one more gallon of milk or box of cereal.

So - if the thought of making a donation has never before crossed your mind, that's cool, sorry to bore you with this; but if you have thought before "Hey, neat compilation, I'll throw the guy a PayPal buck" and then decided "Why bother, it's only a dollar" ... please reconsider. : )

There are a lot of other ways you could throw me a bone too (follow link).

Anyway, thanks for reading, thanks for enjoying the MookUI, and thanks for blocking this entire section from your memory if seeing someone who needs help asking for it bothers you.

See ya in Azeroth!


Macros (top)


Here are some of the many macros I use to help the game run smoother - most are Mage-specific, but could be modified easily for use by other classes and abilities.

Will cast Counterspell immediately, even if you're in the middle of another spell:

/cast Counterspell

Eat and drink at the same time:

/use Conjured Glacier Water
/use Conjured Croissant 

Uses the EnhancedFlightMap AddOn to send my ETA to wherever I'm flying to the Party chat

/efm report party

Frame Finder
Running this macro while hovered over any frame will display the name of the frame in your chatbox...useful for trying to determine what AddOn a particular screen element belongs to

/script ChatFrame1:AddMessage("You are hovering over frame: " .. GetMouseFocus():GetName())

Log In Prep
I use this when I first log in - it buffs me with Arcane Intellect and Molten Armor, then conjures a Mana Emerald and Mana Ruby, then restores me back to full mana by casting Evocation, and finally conjures three stacks each of water and food before drinking a Conjured Glacier Water:

/castsequence reset=240 Arcane Intellect, Molten Armor, Conjure Mana Emerald, Conjure Mana Ruby, 
Evocation, Conjure Water, Conjure Food, Conjure Water, Conjure Food, Conjure Water, Conjure Food
/use Conjured Glacier Water

Polymorph Focus
My favorite polymorphing macro - it sets your current target to be your focus if you don't already have a focus target, then polymorphs it; if you do already have a focus target, the macro will simply recast polymorph on your focus target. Works great - you target A, hit the macro, A becomes your focus and gets polymorphed, you move on to target B (and C, etc.) while killing, before your polymorph is up hit the macro again, it will poly your focus target (A) without un-targeting your current combat target.

/clearfocus [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,noexists]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]
/script SetRaidTarget("focus", 1)
/cast [target=focus] Polymorph
/stopmacro [nogroup]

Random Pet
Calls one non-combat pet at random from those I have in my bag

/userandom Golden Dragonhawk Hatchling, Worg Carrier, Diablo Stone, 
Netherwhelp's Collar, Smolderweb Carrier

Handy for when you're in trouble, this macro will cast Ice Barrier on the first press, then Mana Shield on the second press (within 30 seconds)

/castsequence reset=30 Ice Barrier, Mana Shield


These macros manipulate the UI itself, showing or hiding various windows and information depending on how I click. The underlying structure can be tweaked to match your own UI, but these macros will only work as written below if the last Bartender3 Action Bar (the one containing buttons 109 - 120) holds the following macros:

It would look something like this (though the icons can be anything you choose):

I also have a number of Chat Windows and associated eePanels:

And, finally, I have two normally hidden AddOns and associated eePanels:

So, how does all of this interact? It revolves around a single button, Button 109, which contains the 'Trigger' macro:

If you don't have a four-button mouse, you can accomplish the same things by clicking directly on the macros (Buttons 117-120).

Here are the macros themselves:


/click [button:1] BT3Button119; [button:2] BT3Button120; [button:3] BT3Button117; [button:4] BT3Button118;


/recount toggle
/script if eePanel7:IsShown() then eePanel7:Hide() else eePanel7:Show() end


/script if EavesDropFrame:IsShown() then EavesDropFrame:Hide() else EavesDropFrame:Show() end
/script if eePanel8:IsShown() then eePanel8:Hide() else eePanel8:Show() end


/script ChatFrame4:Show()
/script eePanel4:Show()
/script ChatFrame_AddMessageGroup(ChatFrame4, "PARTY")
/script ChatFrame_RemoveMessageGroup(ChatFrame3, "PARTY")
/script ChatFrame4:AddMessage("Party Chat - ON")


/script ChatFrame4:Hide()
/script eePanel4:Hide()
/script ChatFrame_AddMessageGroup(ChatFrame3, "PARTY")
/script ChatFrame_RemoveMessageGroup(ChatFrame4, "PARTY")
/script ChatFrame3:AddMessage("Party Chat - ON")

Video Clips of Older Versions (top)

Please note that all of these clips show older versions of MookUI than the current one; many things have changed since they were captured, both in terms of functionality and looks.

Quick Combat Clip (0:35) - version MookUI_10-30-2007 (NOT the current version)
A short clip showing the MookUI "in action", to give a better feel for how it runs during gameplay.

YouTube (streaming) | Download (8mb, .AVI format)

In Action 01 (1:39) - version MookUI_05-23-2007
A short clip showing the MookUI "in action", to hopefully give a better feel for how it runs during gameplay than a screenshot can.

YouTube (streaming) | Download (23mb, .MPG format)

Setup 'Quick Start' (9:41) - version MookUI_02-02-2007
A clip showing me go through the steps detailed in Quick Start, setting up a "barebones" MookUI in about 10 minutes.
Though it's from an older version of the compilation, the majority is still applicable.

YouTube (streaming)

Short Combat Clip (1:09) - version MookUI_01-17-2007
Just a short example of what the MookUI can look like while in combat, and also how Soundtrack can be used (all audio in the clip is from in-game, I didn't add anything later)

YouTube (streaming) | Download (7.5mb, .WMV format)

Interface Tour (1:37) - first public 'beta' version of MookUI
This is a quick overview and tour of the MookUI from November 2006. Many of the AddOns are different now, as is some of the structure, but might still be useful to get a 'feel' for the MookUI.
