[Notice] Overwolf Addons

Greetings Adventurers,

There has been a lot of discussion within our community on whether it is safe to use certain addons in the game.

At this time, we are still in discussion with Overwolf in regards to addons they may offer including the use of the Overwolf New World Mini-Map addon.

See you in Aeternum!

Greetings Adventurers,

As an update, we continue to discuss this particular addon with Overwolf.

For now, we have made the decision that client-controlled addons which solely use the position of the player in the world are fine. However, if the functionality changes in a way that violates our Terms of Service, such as integrating other web sites to determine where nodes, paths or safe/unsafe areas of the map are, we will first provide an official change in our stance, and then take action.

Thank you for your patience.

Hello friends,

Looks like there is still a bit of confusion around the use of addons. To clarify things, I’ve linked a post below where we are currently chatting about this, but wanted to make sure the Tl;dr made it to the official news section.

Tl;dr

Are you using an addon that pulls only your location? You are good at this time and no action will be taken. Keep watch on the official channel in case this position changes.

Are you using an addon that pulls more than your location? You need to stop immediately, as you are subject to action from the moderation team.
