Warhammer Interface Addons

The WAR API is a set of functions, provided by Mythic, that allow you to modify the Warhammer Online Interface through the use of addons and macros.
Although there's only a few addons available for now, you can expect quite a boom as soon as Warhammer is released.

Warhammer: Age of Reckoning has a minimalist user interface. Things like the amount of quick bars, exp, renown exp, Tome of Knowledge etc. are all easily interpreted through the basic UI. The reasoning behind the basic UI is customization. WAR will use the LUA coding system for its user interface, allowing for easy and dynamic customization. EA Mythic will provide you with the basics to make the game fun, and leave the rest open to interpretation. While the UI will be customizable, there will not be any macros or anything of that nature.

There's several addons on Curse for now, which you can check out if you're interested in modifying your interface.

WhinySpellTimer - tracks buffs/debuffs you cast on yourself and your offensive and defensive targets

AutoLoot - automatically uses the 'Loot All' function when looting a corpse, even when the modifier key is not held.

zChatWindow - moves or hides different parts of the chat frame

XpStatus - this addon will keep track of your experience and renown earnings during a game session.

Yabber - allows you to customize the size or color of chat bubbles appearing above characters when they talk.
