Must-Have Addons for Legion and Battle for Azeroth


With Curse taken over by Twitch, and Twitch taken over by Amazon, some of the functionality of Curse addons has been lost.

In particular, I can’t find my addon suite that I built back in 2011 and updated over the years.

That means I’ll have to give you my addons here!


Gold Queen’s Top 8 Addons for Legion and Battle for Azeroth

These are some of my favourite addons for buying, selling and keeping track of my auctions and gold making online.


1. Trade Skill Master

Download and install from for all modules and for desktop app.

TradeSkillMaster is a module based system to help both NEW Auctioneers and the most elite auction goblins manage everything related to the Auction House!

Our goal is to work hand-in-hand with our community to develop an all-inclusive suite of modules that, when used together, follows our users through every single auction and crafting related function, making them as much gold in as automated of an environment as possible while still following blizz Terms of Service very closely.”

This 2011 quote has stood the test of time.  Over six years later, TSM has a website, a discord server, and has a leading role in the warcraft gold-making community.

TSM4 is starting beta, and will make it into the all singing all dancing buying crafting selling professions all-star.

Get your invite to TSM4 beta by joining TSM Premium, and watch my blog posts for more about TSM!


2. Auctionator

Download from

Auctionator makes the auction house easier to use, by presenting auction house listings clearly and succinctly, and by eliminating the tedium involved in posting and managing auctions.

Auctionator is designed for casual everyday auction house users.”

I’ve grown to love auctionator over the last few years because of its beautiful shopping lists that allow me to scan groups of items and compare their prices, buy exactly what I want for the right price, and easily post an item for the amount that I choose, rather than simply undercutting.

With auctionator I can give each item individual attention as I post it for sale on the Auction House, and check which warcraft competitors have also posted the same item, their prices, and their quantities.  This is essential for me when watching item trends, supply, and demand.


3. World Quest Group Finder

Because quests give gold, and doing them in a group makes them faster and easier.

WQGF helps you, helps other people, and everyone earns gold together. Perfect!

Download here


4. Server Hop

The natural successor to Cross Realm Assist.  Server hop helps you move from realm to realm.

Useful for finding rare mobs, completing quests with minimum competition, mining herbs and ore, even for buying extra copies of limited supply vendor items.

Download here


5. Garrison Mission Manager

For order hall and garrison if you occasionally go back there.  Because who wants to mess around calculating different combinations of followers.  Because you want Warlords of Draenor Garrisons and Legion Order Hall missions over quickly and out the way. Making you passive gold while you do your other business in warcraft.

6. Gatherer / Gathermate 2


Not strictly useful for auctioneering, this helps players who enjoy farming raw mats such as herbs and ore.

I particularly love the Heads Up Display which lets you fly or ride to the next node without consulting your map.

Pick it up here



Gathermate2 is very similar to Gatherer.  I personally use both, Gathermate2 with Legion, Gatherer with old world herbs and ore!

Download here


7. Postal

Download from

Quite simply the current best mailbox addon, letting you retreive and post your items faster and with greater flexibility.


8. Pen and Paper

Funnily, there is no download for this one *grin*

For me, this is the best there is, and would be up at number one if I wasn’t so lazy sometimes.

Nothing is better than keeping a handwritten note on your desk about items to watch, who to trade with, or anything else to do with buying selling and watching gold making.





19 More Gold-Making Addons for Legion and Battle for Azeroth

Lilsparky’s workshop

Have you ever wanted an addon that will compare the cost price of mats with the selling costs of the crafted item? This will become your best friend.

Pick it up here



The grand-daddy of them all, Auctioneer keeps track of auction data, makes the auction house easier to use and navigate, lets you search for items, sell, and check prices.

Auctioneer Suite provides you with the tools and data necessary to make those difficult auctioning decisions with ease.

From purchasing to posting, the Auctioneer Suite provides time-tested tools to allow you more time to actually play your characters or play the market. As you will soon discover, it is much more than a simple “Auctioning AddOn”, the Auctioneer Suite also shows in-depth information for all game items, such as those used in quests or recipes, enchanting, milling, prospecting and more.

Numerous other AddOns will also use the Auctioneer statistics you gather via scanning, such as Little Sparky’s Workshop.”



For fast looting



Alerts you when Nightmare Creepers (Val’Sharah, Dreamleaf) and Withered (Suramar) spawn.  In case you miss then when you have a trail of other mobs chasing you during herbing time.


Easy Obliterate

For using the obliterum forge in Dalaran, Broken Isles. Obliterum is a Legion-only material that upgrades crafted gear.


Fishing Buddy

An old favourite which lets you double-click to fish, equip fishing gear, keeps track of looted fish, apply lures, more.



Together with HandyNotes_Argus, HandyNotes_Draenor Treasures, HandyNotes_LegionR & T, HandyNotes_LimitedVendors, HandyNotes_TimelessIsle_RareElites

This addon and extra modules changes your map to show location of treasures, and other important features



Great for finding rares, NPCscan scans names and mouseover targets, then gives you a loud alert when one is found.


PetBattleMaster, PetTracker, PetTrackerBreeds

My prefered pet addons, together with rematch.



Pet leveling queues, teams, and search your pets. Incredibly useful for getting your level 1 pets up to level 25 for better prices on the Auction House.



For plotting routes, including things like Ulduar Camel farming, seasonal spawns like the Hallows End inns, rare spawn points.


World Quest Tracker

Helps you manage your world quests (“dailies”) using your ingame map. Especially useful for making sure you get your daily Emissary chests in Legion.


Cecile Recipe Tooltip

Adds extra info to your tooltips.  Who doesn’t need more mouseover info!



“Altoholic is an Ace 3 addon written for people who dedicate most of their time to leveling alts, and who want to have as much information as possible in one addon. The main feature of the addon is the search functionality which allows users to search their alts’ bags or loot tables in an Auction-House-like frame.

All this with multiple-realms/accounts support.”

Quite simply, altoholic lets me co-ordinate items, and trade skills across my alts and various characters.  I can also check their bags, guild banks, all in a friendly user interface window.



For tracking number of kills for mobs that drop mounts/pets, especially for farming runs! Shows if you’ve defeated this lockout or not.



For looking at and comparing popular transmog sets.  For checking how popular a piece of armor might be for resale.



Track instance locks, M+, quests & much more across alts TheUndermineJournal – Undermine data in tooltips
