Honestly it would be a dumb move to allows add-ons.

No add ons. I'm find with third parties providing things and not as requisites.

Need a parser or realtime or otherwise? They are out there. I prefer Torparse btw.

**** addons, it's good that they don't allow them in my opinion.

The only addon I would like is a better GTN interface, and maybe an item GTN value insert for the mouseover - the rest of that crap isn't needed. They aren't really needed in WoW either if you pay attention, since most of it is already contained in the UI provided now - except, again, for the auction. Unless you're the type that likes to feel all special in lowbie dungeons that is.

Addons would be fun, but don't hold your breath. It's a religious issue (see above in thread), there's no staff for it, and the orphaned HeroEngine fork likely makes it a major headache even if they wanted to.

This is certainly a concern.

Bioware has stated many times since the games launch that they have no plans to support addons now or in the future. I've seen nothing where they've changed that stance.
