Spell Stealer  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.85
by: Blinddate [More]

Spell Stealer

Simply put, this addon creates a movable frame listing
any and all buffs that you can steal from your current target.
If the target has no steal-able buffs, the frame remains hidden.

When you steal a buff from an enemy, it will display a link in your chatbox
such as 'You have stolen [spell] from [enemy].'
It will also show up as a notification in either the built in Floating combat text, Parrot, MikSBT, or SCT when you successfully steal a spell.

There are only three commands:

"/ss test" will activate the frame with some fake buffs, so you can position it freely without being in combat.

"/ss lock" toggles the locking/unlocking of the frame.

"/ss announce" Toggles whether the addon announces to raid/party when you spellsteal.
it automatically detects whether you are in a raid or party and announces accordingly.

Hold right mouse button on the frame to move it. (Make sure it's not locked!)

That's it.. No configuration required, install it and go.

I use this with Magefever for my Mage needs..

Thanks to b_buck (@Curse) for his MageNuggets, which inspired this addon, and who's code I misused for my own purposes..

1.85 12/14/2014
** 6.0 compatibility and TOC bump
** Adds seconds remaining to short term stealable buffs

1.83 12/15/2013
** 5.4 compatibility and TOC bump.

1.82 03/17/2013
** TOC bump
** Bug fixes.


1.79 08/30/2012
** 5.04 compatibility and TOC bump.

1.75 07/04/2011
** Fixed bug causing frame to not save position.

1.74 07/02/2011
** Forgot to add 1.73 patch notes. 1.73 added new "lock" option (defaults to on) so you don't accidently move the frame.
** New in 1.74, bug fixes for 4.2, and "growup" option. Allows you to reverse the direction of the frame growth.. up or down (normal).. it looks a little weird reversed, but that's all the time I have for it at the moment.


1.72 05/11/2011
** Fixed bug causing spellstealer to not announce to party/raid chat.

1.7 04/26/2011
** TOC bump for 4.1- Didn't notice any problems with 4.1 patch.
1.6 01/11/2011
** New option: /ss announce. Announces to party/raid when you spellsteal something.

1.5 10/22/10
** Fixes the taint issues.. maybe?? This is for you Zidomo.. let me know if it works!!

1.4: 10/22/10
** Fixes the bug where if you spellsteal the frame would not immediately update.
** Had to remove the 'click to spellsteal' option from the frame, due to taint issues.
** Added a test frame. Type "/ss test" to enable or disable it. (/sstealer also works)

1.3: 10/20/10
** Should fix the bug where the frame would get 'stuck' and not update if your target died while it had a stealable spell.


1.22: 10/13/10
** TOC bump for 4.01 patch

1.2: 09/25/10

** Now compatible with Cataclysm.
** Frame auto sizes to fit the amount of steal-able spells the target has.
** You can now left click on the frame to cast Spellsteal.

So moving their location will move it, but that's about it.
Good to know, thanks! I use the blizz default SCT so I will have to look into how to move it.

If that is what you are looking for.. let me know and I'll go ahead and include it as an option in my next release. Well, As soon as curseforge.com is back up so I can access my git repository anyhow. :P

A new version should be approved shortly which adds a frame lock option, as well as being future compatible with 4.2, and adds support for Parrot, SCT and MikSBT.

Also, the "left click to steal" isn't working for me, all it does is cause the frame to jump across the screen in a very distracting manner.

Ooh and as mentioned before, a "lock frame" option would be nice.
