Ok, all. Cristian crosses over into morondom at the point where he starts telling us not just to use addons, but to specifically use HIS addons. He hasn't done that, yet, but he's getting close.There's a lotta reasons for NOT using addons. One is that addons sap your system. If you're running a Windows computer with a half gig of memory, and trying to make it across Dalaran to get the fishing daily, you now all about how addons are wrecking you.Now, Cristian uses all these addons...and he's happy. I use Decursive, Quartz, and Omen. I don't use any of the others he mentioned, and I don't miss them. So take his suggestions with a grain of salt. Don't install an addon unless you find you have a NEED for it.

Spend the thirty bucks to buy 2GB's of ram. A very good computer is so cheap these days that if you can't afford the upgrade you can't afford the subscription or to be wasting your time on MMO's.

Dude, that's very easy to say when you CAN afford it...but my computer has no room for added expansion...I have two GB, by the way...and your comment that if you can't afford the computer you shouldn't be playing Wow is idiotic.You, sir, are simply stupid.Have a nice day.

You're a fool to try to play wow with anything less than 1GiB of RAM, and it's been that way since WoW came out. BC pushed a 1GiB system pretty hard in Shatt, and Wrath pretty much requires 2GiB if you want to go to Dalaran... though everywhere else 1-1.5GiB will do you fine.The issue has nothing to do with addons, you will have the exact same problems in packed cities regardless of addon if you don't have enough memory to avoid the page file in the first place. Even loading up 150MiB of resource-intensive addons is a drop in the bucket compared to loading up all those play textures in a city.
