Display the distance to your target. More accurate than any other AddOn.

Why Yards are so Hard to Calculate

AddOns are not able to obtain map coordinate data for NPCs and other players. This is a Blizzard decision to cripple range finding AddOns. Hard Yards is the most accurate at estimating distance across a full gamut of target types. Hard Yards displays the minimum and maximum yards to your target, friend or foe!

Featured as Seerah's Pick of the Week!!!

How To Use

Instal: Like any other AddOn. Set up: Works 'as is'. For options enter '/hy', '/hard', or '/yards' in chat.

Moving: Mouse over the Hard Yards frame, holding down the 'Control' key. Drag and release.

Other AddOns:If one of HardYards_min & HardYards_max is not nil then Hard Yards is loaded and running. Range values from zero to 80 yards maximum. When beyond 80 yards, -1 is returned.

'/hy hide' will hide the frame BUT still allows other AddOns to obtain the range estimation.

If You Like Hard Yards

Nobody can resist an adorable Raptor Hatchling pet or the magnificent Netherwing Drake and Long-Forgotten Hippogryph mounts. You'll of course need Dark Soil for The Tillers friendships and a Loose Pebble for your Dog! While fishing you'll wonder if This Scampi Happening? Oh, but it is! Why not Let Minnow about your fishing poles and you surely Cod Do Batter with your fishing achievements. While adventuring, map your way with X and Y coordinates and always go the Hard Yards measuring distance. Have some fun with Yarrr for pirate Tooltips or turn geek with Fibonacci. See all the hidden game asset IDs with Tip or Enumerate your frames. Achievement critters and NPCs receive some Rare Love and keep track of Sunrise & Sunset.

Cookies, Beer & Donations

It is all about the cookies and beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Donate because as Gallywix would say… "time is money, friend". 😊
