With the long awaited 3.0 patch, some code changes had to be made to ensure mods so many people have used for so many years remained up and running. In light of that, I would like to send a huge thank you to Dargen, another mod author who spent time working on getting CTMod up to speed. CTMod is the longest running mod or compilation still around today, having begun in the Alpha phase of the original ‘classic’ game, and with several hundred thousand users in the US alone, I’m very happy to be able to provide you all with an updated version for the 3.0 Wrath of the Lich King preparation patch.
For those of you who don’t know Dargen, or just want to see some other mods he’s developed, you can visit his portal at WoWInterface linked below. I have full confidence in his coding ability, and applaud his professionalism and quality of both coding and notes.

With that being said, the mods listed below (and available on the <a href=”http://www.ctmod.net/downloads/”>downloads</a> page) have all been updated for the 3.0 patch.
