Perl Classic

Perl Classic

Client Version: 5.0.4


Perl Classic Unit Frames are a complete rewrite of the original mods by Perl. They replace the default Player, Pet, Target, Target of Target, Party, and Party Pet frames and add dedicated frames for many other units (Focus, Focus Target, Party Target, Target of Target of Target). It has been a high priority to maintain the look and feel or the original Perl mods while expanding functionality. The mod has been recoded for performance and is built around the Blizzard UI usage of events. 

Slash Commands 


I’m seeing double party buffs for some reason, what gives? 

  • 99% of the time this is caused by CT_PartyBuffs. Simply remove the mod and you will return to having one set of party buffs.

I am having massive dead spots for clicking on some of the unit frames, what’s wrong? 

  • This can be caused by a number of mods, but the most common seems to be CT_MovableParty. Please remove this mod as Perl can be moved without the use of this mod.

The default party frames are showing up with red lightning bolts. What’s going on? 

  • As of version 1.503 of CT_RaidAssist this should no longer be caused by CTRA. The settings for this are now located in the WoW settings under Interface Options -> Basic -> Raid -> Hide Party Interface.

Do you support ArcaneBar? 

  • Yes, it is included in your download of Perl Classic.

Will you be bringing back support for Perl_PlayerBuff? 

  • No, there are far better mods for both features and performance.

Where are the raid frames? 

  • As of 2.0 I no longer code raid frames for Perl Classic. Luckily, X-Perl’s raid frames work great alongside Perl Classic.

The scaling is all messed up! What do i do? 

  • I recommend setting the scale to that of the UI if you are having issues. Open the options menu via “/perl” or the Black Pearl icon on the minimap and set the scale accordingly under the “All” tab.

Can you add this feature? 

  • I’m sure it’s possible, but the primary purpose of this mod is to ‘modernize’ the original Perl mod so that it doesn’t slow your game down.
