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.

    I HAVE had success setting multiple /way statements that will increment to the next one after the last one is reached. So I'm trying to set one up to run through the 5 locations where Zandalari Warbringers spawn... but for some reason, it reaches the first one then the next waypoint is NOT displayed. Here is what I run (from Paste, btw).

    /way Krasarang Wilds 39.08, 67.13 KS-Warbringer /way Dread Wastes 47.47, 61.32 DW-Warbringer /way Townlong Steppes 36.53, 85.67 TS-Warbringer /way Kun-Lai Summit 75.09, 67.65 KLS-Warbringer /way The Jade Forest 52.73, 18.99 JF-Warbringer

    Is it that each one is in a different zone?

    I would like to use this add-on, but there are two things that i figured would already be a part of it that are not, is it too much trouble to add these two options?

    1. Option to NOT remove way-point when reached (but still change to the next closest?)
    2. Automatically point to the nearest way-point (instead of having to spam /cway constantly)

    EDIT: for point 2 it seems quest objectives does this already, can it be applied to user defined waypoints?

    I have used this for exploration achievements, but now that's done, without the above options, i cant find much use for it :(

    Thanks, Stig.

    @BrightBrown: Go

    TomTom is super dumb with regards to what it shows when you add new waypoints. The last waypoint to be set successfully through the API is the one that will be displayed. You can right-click any other waypoint and set it to be displayed instead.

    As far as 'set closest waypoint', yes, it just uses /cway every time the waypoint is cleared.

    @Cladhaire: Go

    OK, not sure how one would define "latest waypoint" when multiple ones are bulk loaded. I was inquiring about said multiple load where one specific one may be out of reach, so you want to "cancel" it and return to the rest of the list. Logic says a "/way reset" may accomplish that. Correct?

    "Automatically set the closest waypoint" means using "/cway" at the beginning of a bulk load and it will "carry one" that way for subsequent waypoints, correct?

    Thanks for responding!

    @BrightBrown: Go

    TomTom doesn't have a queueing system, it will only display the latest waypoint you have set. The API and the POI integrations can set things more dynamically. You can also set TomTom to automatically set the closest waypoint when the latest is cleared.

    @Cladhaire: Go

    Yes, I saw it had been updated, thanks.

    Am I correct in thinking if the macro has multiple "/way" statements, it works it's way from the bottom of the list upward?

    If it turns out you can't make a particular one (in a list), can you cancel JUST that one and have it go to the next in the list?

    Works fine for me..

    /way Timeless isle 50 50

    /way timeless 50 50

    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?

    Could you provide some (any) information?
