Best WildStar Addons

wildstar best addons
A few days ago I came across a great thread on reddit about WildStar must have addons. I decided to test some of them and they really changed my gameplay. In the list below you’ll find their descriptions, and links to download pages. I also added my notes about some of them. I didn’t post any observation about Quests and Leveling addons, because they are very similar, and it’s up to you which one will suite you best. I also created a guide how to install WildStar addons. If I missed any great addon, please let me know in the comments below.

    A pretty good list; some are pretty opinion-based, but if you like that sort of thing (ClassicQuestDialog, InstantQuestAccept) then they seem pretty good. I’ve got a few favorites, too:

    DotPlates is a minimalist Nameplates replacement, with little/no text and health/shield/casting information displayed in an easy-to-read circular layout.

    HarvestPlates is a really useful gathering addon that adds in-world labels to harvest nodes (only ones you can harvest by default) for quick location and identification.

    AnotherSCT allows you to customize floating damage text (if you also like that sort of thing), enlarging crits and changing fonts and a whole lot more (requires ColorPicker)

    Newton (for Scientists) keeps your Scanbot spawned and ready, if you’re bugged by how often it disappears.

    SpaceStash is a pretty awesome inventory UI replacement I found just yesterday, minimizing the frame and allowing you to scale the icon sizes per-window, as well as optionally auto-opening your inventory when doing various things such as banking and looking at vendors.

    Finally, The Visitor lets you easily find someone’s housing plot by character name instead of scrolling through that endless list of plots we have now.´╗┐
