Map coordinates are numerical references to locations on the WoW maps. You can display your coordinates with many AddOns. They are also called tloc, an abbreviation for "Thottbot location". It consists of a set of x/y coordinates, which is two numbers ranging from 0 to 100, representing a location on the current zone map.

  • 0,0 represents the top left corner
  • 100,0 represents the top right corner
  • 0,100 represents the bottom left corner
  • 100,100 represents the bottom right corner
  • 50,50 is the exact center of the map

Cosmos users can show their current position under the minimap by typing /mntloc.
Various other AddOns are also capable of displaying your current location. Examples include:

Checking coordinates without addons Edit

In-game, simply copy the following:

/script SetMapToCurrentZone() local x,y=GetPlayerMapPosition("player") DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(format("%s, %s: %.1f, %.1f",GetZoneText(),GetSubZoneText(),x*100,y*100))

Go into the game, open a chat box, paste, hit enter. Your present coordinates for the zone will appear in the default chat frame. This code can also be placed in a macro.

Showing coordinate locations in WoWWikiEdit

You can use the templates {{Zone Map}} and {{Zone Map Note}} to indicate locations on a map using the map coordinates.


You can also add coordinates (with a map tooltip), as a note, to an item or NPC using {{coords}}:

Example: The Rokk <Master of Cooking>[62, 16]
{{coords|62|16|Shattrath City}}
