    Agreed with _Scratch_ - use the Curse client. it is free, lightweight, and downloads and installs mods for you, and keeps them up to date. You can close the program before playing too, so you can save more on your system resources.

    absolutely, Blizzard remembers everyone to "Load out of date" addons every patch they do, so they must kno people use them, and its acceptable

    i'm not exactly sure what to do on a mac, but try to get the curse client downloader on the website. it does it for you.

    No, I found a way. It's named WoWMatrix :) BTW you can't install curse on mac

    in my interface foler here is no addon folder

    cosmos brings a complete addon pack and has a patcher of it's own and the addons will never run our of date. u should also get detach mini buttons(self explanatory) and meta map, which can show u the unexplored in real time, unlike atlas. cosmos also records and uploads with minimum personal data everything from mobs' loot to AH prices to thottbot, so u can contribute yourself.
