As of Wrath Classic, all of these features are present in the Default UI.

The erroneously-hidden health has also been fixed as Blizzard no longer uses ShouldKnowUnitHealth() in the Wrath client.

Wrath support is being dropped, but Classic Era/SoM downloads will remain.



Modern TargetFrame adds features present in Modern WoW.

  • StatusBar text for health and mana bars. Formatting is still controlled by Status Text under Interface Options > Display.
  • Rare-Elites now show the Rare-Elite TargetFrame border. (Silver dragon with wings, normal rares are without wings)
  • Threat indicator with numerical value.



  • The game identifies many normal elites as rares. I don’t plan on modifying this behavior in any way.
  • The threat indicator appears to spike whenever the target changes its target, usually by taunts or threat-related mechanics. This is a well-known bug in Blizzard’s ThreatAPI.
