Top 8 Helpful Addons You Need To Have in WoW Classic SoD


Top 1. CursorTrail - Never Lose Your Cursor Again

CursorTrail is a nifty addon that ensures you'll never lose sight of your cursor in the heat of battle again. As you move your pointer across the screen, CursorTrail leaves a customizable trail – think circles, snowflakes, or even lightning – making it highly visible against any backdrop.
