4. Azeroth Auto Pilot

Known as the best Addon for leveling by using the data provided by players who quickly plotted out the single most efficient route for leveling. This Addon provides you a list of activities and what order to do them to hit 60 in the least amount of time. Most of you will be content with just using the Auto Path Helper function and selecting Speed Run. However, if you want to plan a different route through specific zones, you can simply drag and drop which zones you’re interested in for your Custom Path route.

Why You Need Azeroth Auto Pilot:

  • Speed up your leveling and go to 60 faster than usual by skipping cutscenes, putting an arrow in your screen that shows where you need to go, and many more features.
  • Offer to you the option to do quests in groups you create.

3. Altoholic

This one was developed to be an easier way to know if your alts have more golds than your main character. Officially released in March 2008 and with almost 18 million downloads, Altoholic provides you information about your alts (bags, mails, AH, etc...) without having to reconnect them all the time. You don’t need to waste time logging on to each alt to check your items and information, which is great for us while playing. 

Why You Need Altholic:

  • Why need to reconnect your alts when you can have all their information in your hands? (Not exactly in your hands but as good as it really was.)
