Wow Arena Addons

Notice

As you may have noticed we are focused on pvp / arena, so we did our best to find those addons that could be usefull in the arena for you. That doesn't mean that you should install all these addons, read the description and choose what is best for you.  For sure you heard people bragging one addon or another, but an addon it's good only if it gives you what you are missing / lacking, and if you don't customize it may be useless to you. So our advice is to take your time and customize each addon so it provides you the exact information you need and remove all the useless options / information.
Try to create an interface that suits you best and stick with it, but feel free to try new things.  In arena gameplay reflexes are the key to victory, to react as swiftly posible to certain situations, so a familiar interface that provides information usefull to your class and tactics is a top priority.

Addons can prove to be very usefull if they are used / configured corectly, but they can confuse you if there is too much information, so choose wisely.
