If you like to play WOW, then you might want to add on some tools to make your game.
In this blog I will contrast the two excellent tools, the WOW Addon Tools from the Blizzard Site and the AddOn Studio for WOW that is an open source project on Codeplex.
Keep in mind that even though the Visual Studio Shell (isolated mode) is used, the language is XML and Lua, the same languages that is used on the Blizzard site. These are not CLR connected languages, but many of the helpful tools are used, and some people think that the Lua is a .NET implementation. That is not the case.
Here are the contrasted approaches, personally I like the AddOn Studio for WOW from Codeplex, as it is similar to the Visual Studio environment that I am use to.
