What is an addon and how do I install an addon?

People in my guild keep talking about addons that monitor your threat levels or help with the auction house? I'm new to World of Warcraft and was wondering if you can tell me what is an addon, where can I get an addon, and how do I install an addon?


Add Ons and Wow Add Ons are

Add Ons and Wow

Add Ons are WoW modules that make your gaming experiance more manageable and fun. Easier is also a word some people use.

They are really simple to instal. Simply go to your WoW directory, open the file labeled "interface" then the file label "addons" Download an addon from any web site on the net that offers them.

Curse Gaming
WoW Interface
WoW Ace *Guy's Favorite*

These are 3 of the best places to download addons.

Managing your addons can be complicated, and both Curse Gaming and WoW Ace offer programs that you can install that will help you keep your addons up to date.

Happy Gaming!
