addons that overhaul the appearance of your unitframes, addons that make spell casting more efficient, and addons to help with inventory management. The list goes on and on. While the impact of many addons seems to be directly related to the amount of memory they consume, there are certain gems that can greatly improve the efficiency of how you play, despite their small memory footprint. One such addon is FreeRefills.There are many types of UI addons:
FreeRefills is an addon developed and maintained by Kyahx, but despite its name, it doesn’t actually give you items for free. Rather, it automatically purchases prespecified items to ensure you have a certain quantity on hand whenever you visit a vendor who has said items for sale. FreeRefills uses a simple, command-line interface that won’t overwhelm you:
- /freerefills add [item link] #
Use this command to specify items to automatically purchase. Shift+click on the item to generate an item link and replace the “#” symbol with the quantity you wish to keep in stock. (Ex. /freerefills add [Wild Quillvine] 60)
- /freerefills del [item link]
Removes an item from the list to automatically purchase. (Ex. /freerefills del [Simple Wood])
- /freerefills list
Displays a list of all items currently being tracked and the quantity that should be automatically purchased.
- /freerefills clear
Removes all items from the list to automatically purchase.
- /freerefills overstock
Toggle option to purchase quantities that would result in a greater number on hand that what is specified if the item is sold in stacks of 5 or more. Off by default.
- /freerefills bank
Toggle the option to automatically move prespecified items from the bank to your inventory when banking.
Here are a few of the items you might consider setting up to restock:
- Flintweed Seed x 20 and Maple Seed x 20 (Why?)
- Wild Quillvine x 60
- Simple Wood x 10 and Flint and Tinder x 1 (if you’re a cook)
- Purified Draenic Water x 40
Of course, this list can be customized to whatever tradeskills you have. Alchemists might want to keep a certain number of different types of vials automatically on hand. Fishermen might want to keep a stack of Bright Baubles. Similarly, different classes can have differing uses for this addon, such as keeping a quiver stocked with arrows or repurchasing poison components. However you use it, FreeRefills can remove a lot of the everyday tedium of restocking before or after a raid.
