WildStar - How to Install Addons

WildStar has addons. You want to install those addons. I'll help you install those addons for WildStar, Cupcake.

WildStar is a game that is easy to look at, and there is also a lot going off under the hood - a lot of information, and many details that will improve your experience. Addons can grab that information and display it to you in a nice aesthetic way, or it can take what is already displayed and change it in 100s of way; colours, size, scope of information, or just remove it all together.

WildStar is a unique beast in that it comes preloaded with dozens of addons already. These range from unit frames to your combat log. You can disable these with ease, but why would you? It'll increase performance for one, and secondly there is no need to have two sets of information being generated.
