Addons for Brewmaster Monk


Generic Addons for Monks



Here, at Icy Veins, we useElvUIfor all our characters. This addon is a complete replacement of the defaultUser Interface. It comes with almost everything you need to perform properly:action bars, cooldown timers, proc display, etc.

We strongly recommend that you get this addon and our forum moderator Pandacho has writtena quick configuration guide for it.


Boss Mods: Deadly Boss Mods or Bigwigs

Boss mods are addons that warn you about boss abilities and give youlive advice on how to handle some mechanics. We strongly recommend you toget one such addon. At Icy Veins, we mostly useDeadly Boss Mods,the most popular boss mod. A good alternative isBig Wigs.



GTFO is a lightweightaddon that notifies you when you are standing in harmful effects or when youare making other such mistakes. It is very useful, even if your boss mod isalready alerting you of such things.


Parrot or Mik's Scrolling Battle Text

Parrot andMik's Scrolling Battle Text are highlycustomisable addons for displaying floating battle text while in combat (incomingheals, damage of your spells, etc.). They both work very well by default.


Weak Auras

WeakAuras is anextremely useful addon that allows you to have visual effects on your screen,helping you track your buffs, debuffs and cooldowns. It is highly customisableand it can make it much, much easier to keep track of your procs and play yourspec more proficiently. It can also be used for a variety of otherfunctions.

The best place to find WeakAuras to use is their Brewmaster Monk sectionfor a variety of auras to suit your needs. If you are looking for a simplebar to track your Brewmaster Monk Tank Macros and Addons - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (10) Stagger, my ownaura provides all the information you need, and I also have one formonitoring the Health of yourBrewmaster Monk Tank Macros and Addons - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (11) Summon Black Ox Statue. There are many Brewmaster WeakAura groups that showcooldowns, Energy, potential healing, and more on Wago so you should be able tofind one you like.


Recount / Skada / Details!

Recount is awell known addon that most people use for displaying current DPS or HPS(Healing Per Second). This add-on is not really lightweight, and provides avery high amount of information (and it can sometimes cause issues withperformance). It is generally a good option to use Recount for checking what youtake damage from and if the share of damage/healing you do with each of yourabilities is similar to that of other players of your class.

An alternative to Recount (similar in function, so the choice is personalpreference) is Details!.

A lightweight alternative to Recount and Details! is Skada Damage Meter.


Grid and GridClickSets (Optional)

ElvUI comes with decent raid frames. The only real reason for usingGrid andGridClickSetsis if you want to be able to decurse raid or party members by rightclicking their frame in the raid of party frame. If you choose to go withGrid, then you might want to also useGridStatusRaidDebuff.
