It upgrades the game, and designs it to its own taste. Once you check out all those add-ons, your look at the game will change, and Vanilla will become just a distant newbie past.
However, with the Blizzards API update, some of the users had an enormous issue. It resets addons default settings. If you’ve ever tweaked your addons, you know well how much time it can take. But, don’t worry, you can retrieve all your settings in a few simple steps.
How to retrieve your lost addon settings in WoW
Copy original account content to a newly created one
It looks like the original account folder changed from # <single digit at the end of your account name> to #0. There is a simple workaround:
- Log off and close the game.
- Enter the WoW installation folder.
- Find and back up WTF folder.
- In the WTF folder, look for changes in your account name.
- Copy content of account with know number into the newly created one.
- Restart the game.
Update your addons
After every World of Warcraft API change, addon developers update their packs, as well. So, be sure to have the latest updates for all your in-game addons. On the other hand, you should get rid of outdated addons.
