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 hope this addon will be updated for Legion. I miss it terribly already. It's my go-to for ALL my toons - and I have a lot of them.

    @kwicherk: Go

    Having the same problem after 6.2. The stat lists don't drop down now.

  • Avatar of kwicherk kwicherk Dec 06, 2014 at 06:09 UTC - 0 likes

    The "Rebuild for..." functionality brings up the "Stat 1" box, but when I go to select a stat, the drop down box does not populate with any values.

    Using 5.10b6 and no other addons.

    Thank you.

    I've created a few tickets documenting things I ran into using 5.10b1

    The overlap ticket is a visual bug and while hindering not a show stopper. The empty slots bug is a bit more annoying, but can be worked around by not saving the set as a WoW 'native' set. Neither of those I have enough knowledge of Outfitter for to fix them.

    The ticket about ITEM_QUALITY_UNCOMMON contains the fix, as well. That causes an actual error, so it might be worth fixing soon.

    I've activated a Starter Edition subscription so that I can test changes being posted in the comments before I upload them.

    Thank you for the effort!
    I appreciate it, because this is one of my core addons I really like using for years now.

    Smile! You are on the internet!

    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?
