Altoholic (Addon)

Todays addon review is regarding one of my very first addons I installed, called Altoholic. This was an amazing addon, which had the ability to keep a very large amount of information regarding all of your characters on every realm in one place. For someone like myself, whom for example has 12 level 100’s, approximately 15 level 90’s across multiple realms, this is a very important and reliable addon.

Here are a couple of the important benefits that Ive added below.

Mail – Altoholic has the ability to warn you that mail is about to expire, or mail that’s due to be returned. So those days of losing mail, when they expire, are long gone.

Guild Bank – keeps track of all the items stored in Guild Banks on all your characters.

Item Tracker – Tracks all the items in your inventory on all your characters. This is now also available within TSM3.

Characters – This option gives you a detailed look of your all your characters Gear, Talents, Glyphs and Professions.

Search – The ability to search for something particular within all of your characters. Ideal if you have an item on another character, but unsure who.

Gold – Keeps track of your Gold balance on all of your characters.

Altoholic was first released back in 2008 and has been an integral part of my addons, with this, it’s made my life so much easier. Previous to using Altoholic, I used to use the mail system to store items, when my Bank and Guild Banks were full, the bad side to this, was when the mail expired I lost everything, this is now a distant memory, thanks to the warnings you get from Altoholic, upon logging in. I’d hate to imagine how much gold, items Ive had deleted, not checking my mail before expiry.

Today, there are many addons, that may do the same as above, but individually, if you require something, as an all in one, then I suggest giving Altoholic a try. The only downside, would probably be the memory usage to run the addon, this is dependent on the amount of characters it’s covering, but if your fortunate like myself to have a very good PC or laptop, then this wont be an issue at all.

You can download Altoholic from Curse.com, HERE.

I hope you found this review helpful.
