About Diplomancer

Changes your watched faction based on your current location. DE Verändert die angezeigte Fraktion basierend auf den aktuellen Standort. ES Sigue automáticamente la facción asociada con tu lugar actual. FR Surveiller automatiquement la faction associée à votre position actuelle. PT Segue automaticamente a facção associado à sua localização actual. RU Автоматически следить за выполнением фракция связана с вашего текущего местоположения. KO 현재 위치의 진영을 자동으로 감시합니다.


Diplomancer changes your watched faction as soon as you enter a particular area, instead of waiting until you gain reputation with a faction like most other faction-switching addons. It includes faction, zone, and subzone data for all Classic, Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, and Cataclysm content. It also recognizes faction champion tabards inside appropriately-leveled dungeons.

When you find yourself in a location without an associated faction — for example, if you’re a troll taking a weekend camping trip in the lovely Redridge Mountains — Diplomancer will watch your race’s faction. If you would prefer to watch another faction instead of your race’s faction, you can choose your own default faction.

Type “/dm” for options, or browse to the Diplomancer panel in the Interface Options window.

Language Support

  • Works in all languages.
  • Translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文.
  • Add or update translations for any language on the CurseForge project page.

To add or update translations for subzone names, see the LibBabble-SubZone-3.0 project page. If your language is not yet supported by this library, Diplomancer will run with only partial functionality.


If you are reporting a bug, please make sure you have the latest version of the addon from this page, and then include detailed instructions I can follow to reproduce the bug myself, which Broker display you are using, whether the bug still happens when all other addons are disabled, and the exact text of the accompanying error message (if any).
