Tidy Plates: Threat Plates v6.0

Comments & Tickets


  • Tidy Plates: Threat Plates (TPTP for short) is a theme for use with Tidy Plates with patch 5.0.4 or later WoW client. It offers a high amount of customization and tweaks to how your nameplates react and look. It also offers some unique features that are not available with any other nameplate addon. I've spent a considerable amount of time improving this addon and any comments or concerns about this addon are appreciated. I'm always looking for ways to improve this addon.


  • SharedMedia support and many, many, options for name, health, level, and spell text. As well as all of the standard nameplate features such as castbar and icon, elite icons / textures, skull icons / textures, raid marks, and healthbar coloring/alpha/scale.
  • Ace3 profiling.
  • Low memory footprint.
  • Threat system management.
  • Automatic talent detection and role assigning for an easy out of the box setup.
  • Customizable widgets.
  • Customizable totem nameplates.
  • Customizable nameplates for extra customization for specifically named units.


  • /tptp - Displays options.
  • /tptptoggle - Toggle Role from one to the other.
  • /tptpdps - Toggles DPS/Healing threat plates.
  • /tptptank - Toggles Tank threat plates.
  • /tptpol - Toggles nameplate overlapping.
  • /tptpverbose - Toggles addon feedback text.

Additional Information:

  • A considerable amount of information about options and its internal priorities are not gone into details. Most options that are enable or disable based will toggle off options that are no longer changeable once enabled or disabled. If you have any questions about options and what they do, feel free to leave a comment or PM me here for more information.

    @kunniasta: Go

    Right click on threat plates in your curse client and set the release type to alpha or go here and download manually:

    I'm having the same problem as ragetool was but my primary spec them is set to threat plates. If I change the second one it just lags the whole game up.

    The comments section is not for bugs, please use the support tickets.

    Using the support tickets allow me to narrow down more specifics than a simple Lua error:

    I've been using the alpha version, and it's working, but I'm trying to use the class color on healthbars since 6.0 and it's not working, all classes have red healthbars no matter what.

    Ragetool... it appears your tidyplates is still set to the blizzard default... hit esc, interface, addons tab, select tidyplates and use the dropdown box to select threat plates

    I wanted to thank you for working on this. I've used threat plates for years, and it turned out to be one of those things where you didn't realize how much you relied on it, until it was gone!
