I'm not updating Outfitter for now

I've suspended my WoW subscription and will probably not be playing again until the next expansion. If you come up with code changes to fix problems introduced by content patches in the meantime, please post your fixes in the comments section and I'll work on getting them integrated and posted.


Lots of things can go wrong, but one of the most common is people having problems with Outfitter not working at all. Crazy stuff like tons of errors (if errors are enabled), or it won't change outfits, or the UI is a train wreck. This happens pretty much for one reason: Outfitter was updated while WoW was still running. Just restart WoW all the way from the desktop (not just from login) and it'll be happy again.

Why? Addons have a file called the Table of Contents which describes how WoW should load and start the addon. The problem is that WoW copies the ToC file into memory at startup and will never update it again as long as WoW is still running. If an addon update has changes to the ToC then WoW won't see those changes if it's still running while you update. Those changes to the ToC may include critical things like new files to be loaded. Without those files the addon likely can't even initialize itself correctly resulting in all those errors, mangled UI, etc.

Reporting Bugs

Feel free to report bugs in the comments section at the bottom of this page, but please don't paste in your bug/crash logs. Those logs are very large since they usually include the list of every addon you're running and that makes the post take a huge amount of screen space in the comments section. That, in turn, makes it very difficult for me to find previous questions and bug reports. Crash dumps are great and extremely useful, but please post them into a CurseForge ticket and then refer to that ticket in your comment so I know where to find it. Thanks!

    I am having a issue with outfitter not reequipping my off hand weapon after changing back from the Argent Tournament outfit. She is a Fury Warrior that is dual wielding two-handed weapons. right now I click on my normal outfit twice to reequip it but sometimes I forget.

    Is this a known issue?

    My Outfitter Bar some how got moved off screen I am using the Titan Panel and can see it just below the bottom bar. I cannot click on it to move it back. Can anyone help?

    Also would it be possible to add a function that would center the outfitter bar in the middle of the screen to help with this in the future?

    New feature suggestion.

    It would be neat to be able to flag an item as best in slot and lock it to prevent accidental replacement/deletion/sale/disenchant.

    It appened to me more than once....

    @Amemir: Go

    Looking through the documentation, it doesn't look like there is an 'easy way' that you can macro.

    Possibly a good suggestion for a future feature???

    I didn't say it was your fault. I said I was going to blame you.

    Is there an easy way to be able to rebuild outfits that can be used in a macro?

  • Avatar of Hendo72 Hendo72 Feb 20, 2012 at 19:16 UTC - 0 likes

    I just ran a rebuild on an outfit.

    I have a sword in my bag that I don't have the proficiency to use, but Outfitter is trying to use it. Whenever I switch outfits, the game keeps yelling at me that I can't use it.

    Shouldn't it be ignoring stats on items that I can't use. I am assuming that because of the stats on the sword, the rest of the stats on the outfit are now distorted and inaccurate.

    small bug in the battleground script.

    in twin peaks BG, the BG auto-outfit only works when you are outside the stronghold (alliance or horde) but when you go inside, it auto cancel the BG outfit back to nomal outfit.

    thanks, and great addon :)
