Ok so Carbine has already announced that Wildstar will be addon friendly. Personally, I hate addons. Sure i've come across a few features that were cool but in those instances I'd much prefer if they had been incorporated into the games UI. I think addons can make people lazy. The GTFO one springs to mind that would scream at you if you stood in the stupid, instead of...well watching your enviroment. Threat meters....oh my god do I hate these. What ever happened to the old days where you gauged your threat by just knowing how much dps you were putting out? Did that boss just look at me a second? yeah better stop dps'ing for a bit... DPS Meters - ok so sure they can be handy on a personal basis or for organised raiding ( I actually like the way swtor handled this one, eventually) but I hated it in wow because of the elitist attitude it brought with it. Not to brag, but on my mage my dps was pretty insane, unfortunately whenever a lower geared toon would join our randoms, or perhaps someone that didn't know their class, it wouldnt' be long before someone would start giving them grief because they were doing half my dps. (thats just one example of many where I feel public dps monitors are lame) So many options. Before long there's about 500 addons that all do the same thing, and you gotta sift through them all and find ones you like yada yada and then the game patches and all your addons break so you gotta go through the process of updating them etc etc etc and then you find out the rest of your raid is using a different addon completely so you gotta start using that one otherwise DBM won't communicate etc etc... There have been some addons that i've found to be amazing. Auctioneer for one - god that made the auction house so much more fun for me, but that aside, if given the choice - i'd just do the legwork myself and go without addons completely. Mostly curious to see people's opinions really.
