TomTom's "Crazy Arrow"

TomTom is your personal navigation assistant in World of Warcraft. This addon is very simple, but provides a nice set of functionality. Thanks to Esamynn for Astrolabe, which does the bulk of the work in this addon.

Bugs and Support (PLEASE READ)
Unfortunately I have been forced to disable user comments on For some absurd reason the site has stopped sending me emails when you guys post a new comment, making me completely unable to provide support via this means. I am still happy to provide assistance, both on Curseforge and Wowinterface:

TomTom offers the following major features:

  • Set waypoints via command, or by clicking on the world map
  • A draggable coordinate display with customizable accuracy. This frame can be hidden or locked.
  • Player and cursor coordinates on the World Map (these can be hidden)
  • A floating "crazy-taxi" style arrow that points you to your destination
  • Displaying the "crazy-taxi" arrow or coordinate block in compatible LDB displays, such as NinjaPanel
  • Show a waypoint that points you towards your corpse for easy recovery
  • Can set waypoints by clicking on quest objective POIs on the World Map and watch frame.

Slash Commands:
/tomtom - Opens configuration GUI

In addition you can use the /way command to add and reset waypoints. In order to overcome conflicts with the Cartographer /way command, you can also use /tway to access TomTom's waypoint command. The following slash commands are available:

Slash CommandDescription
/way 14.78 23.9Add a new waypoint at 14.78, 23.90
/way Nagrand 45 50Add a new waypoint in Nagrand at 45, 50
/way 14.78 23.90 This is a waypoint!Add a new waypoint with a description
/way reset allRemove ALL current waypoints
/way reset NagrandRemove all waypoints in Nagrand
/wayb or /waybackSets a waypoint at the current location
/cway or /closestwaySet the crazy arrow to the closest waypoint

TomTom has been designed to publish the Crazy-Arrow and Coordinate Block as LDB feeds, allowing them to be displayed in compatible display addons. I've written a very simple, easy-to-configure panel that is capable of displaying these called NinjaPanel.

If you're looking to bulk import waypoints (to track achievements, etc), a community member has provided a great addon that lets you do this easily. Take a look at Paste.

    Didn't see it mentioned in the latest update notes... I tried to set up one that can get me to the Alliance base on Timeless Isle (i.e. as I am flying there). It's telling me "Timeless Isle" is not a zone. Is there a way?

    okay, well then you answered my question. I noticed this with quest waypoints and I thought I could get them across zones. It is working as you describe. I did your test and I can get the waypoint in another zone. I wish it would work with quests too. Oh well. Thanks for the assistance and quick feedback.

    Pretty simple test:

    1. Clear all existing waypoints (to minimize interference)
    2. Go to a zone in Pandaria (I used Jade Forest)
    3. Open the map, and Control-Shift-Rightclick another zone
    4. The waypoint arrow is set, so clear it (right-click, clear waypoint arrow)
    5. Run /cway

    I can reproduce this for every single zone in Pandaria, and it functions correctly. What in this doesn't agree with what you're seeing?

    TomTom does not continuously scan and change the arrow. It switches when the waypoint arrow is cleared or when you specifically ask it to.

    If you're talking about Quest POI integration, where TomTom is automatically setting waypoints for quests, then no, that will not cross zones, and will never cross zones until WoW makes it possible to do so. Quest waypoints that are automatically set using TomTom will only be displayed for the current zone.

    I also just noticed with the dailies in "Krasarang Wilds" if I fly south from "Vale of Eternal Blossoms" into "Valley of the Four Winds" the arrow will popup when the zone changes but if I fly from "Vale of Eternal Blossoms" into "The Jade Forest"' the arrow does not pop up.

    So I cannot figure out the pattern. Maybe I don't fully understand when it should be up but I thought that I could get the arrow for any waypoint on the same continent.

    Maybe you can clarify it.

    I have the option "Allow closest waypoint to be outside current zone" enabled.

    For example, I just picked up a few dailies in "Krasarang Wilds" and the hearthed back to "Vale of Eternal Blossoms". After hearthing the waypoint arrow is off. I can then type /cway and the arrow does not show me the closest point. Im pretty sure it use to do that.

    I hope that is clear.
