Navigation (WoW)  

This page will tell you how to:

  1. Get the coordinates of where you are
  2. Use coordinates to find out where you need to go

All UI mods described on this page (unless otherwise noted) can be found at: WoWInterface

Where am I?

There are several ways to find out the coordinates of where you are in-game.

Location Macro

Create a macro with the following lines:

/script px,py=GetPlayerMapPosition("player")
/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(format("[%s] %s, %s",GetZoneText(),px*100,py*100));

Now, drag the icon you assigned to a hotbar. When you press it you will get the coordinates, with a lot of decimal places! When reporting locations, round to the nearest whole value!

UI Mods

  • TomTom - displays a small box with your current map coordinates at all times.
    • Set waypoints via /way 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

How do I find this?

  • TomTom - (see previous section for features)
    • Set a waypoint: /way x y name
