PhanxBuffs  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.2.167
by: Phanx [More]

Basic replacement for the default buff, debuff, and temporary enchant (weapon buff) frames.
Einfache Ersätze für die Stärkungszauber-, Schwächungszauber- und Waffenverzauberung-Anzeige des Spielers.
Sustitutos básicos de los iconos del jugador de beneficios, perjuicios y encancamientos de armas.
Substituições básicas para os ícones do jogador de bônus, penalidades e encantamentos de armas.
Простая замена иконки игрока баффы, дебаффы и чары, связанных с оружием.
基本的玩家增益、減益、與武器暫時附魔框架的替代品。

It looks and acts basically like the default buff frames, with a few improvements:

  • Buff and debuff icons are sorted by their remaining duration
  • Text timers are shown only when less than 30 seconds remain on the buff or debuff (configurable)
  • Weapon buff icons can show the spell or item that buffed your weapon, instead of the weapon itself
  • Buff tooltips show the name of the party or raid member who cast the buff on you
  • Buffs or debuffs you never want to see can be hidden (eg. Chill of the Throne)
  • Wrap icons to more than one row, with configurable row lengths
  • Buff and debuff frames are movable
  • Basic configuration options
  • Masque skinning support
Options & Commands

Type “/pbuff” for options, or browse to the PhanxBuffs panel in the standard Interface Options window.

To add a buff/debuff to the ignore list, hold Alt and Shift and right-click its icon.

To add/remove a buff/debuff to/from the ignore list, type “/pbuff buff Zomg Uber Buff” or “/pbuff debuff Zomg Evil Debuff”. Buff/debuff names provided with these commands must be properly spelled, capitalized, and punctuated.

Cancelling Buffs

Due to restrictions Blizzard added in Patch 4.0.1, you cannot right-click to cancel buffs while in combat when using addons that filter or sort the buff display. PhanxBuffs includes a workaround that lets you right-click to cancel buffs out of combat, but you must click twice to remove certain “protected” buffs like shapeshift forms and weapon buffs. By default, PhanxBuffs applies this two-click cancelling method to all buffs to keep things consistent, but if you like, you can enable one-click cancelling for unprotected buffs in the options panel.

When you right-click once, a red square will appear over the buff icon. Right-click again to cancel the buff, or left-click to keep it and hide the red square. You can also right-click on debuffs your character can dispel to cast the appropriate dispel spell on yourself, but as with cancelling buffs, this feature only works out of combat.

If you find yourself needing to cancel buffs quickly while in combat, check out my other addon Cancel My Buffs for a keybind-based solution.

Feature Requests

I consider PhanxBuffs to be complete, and do not plan to add any new features. If you would like to suggest something anyway, feel free to submit a suggestion ticket describing your idea.

Please do not submit any requests related to the timer text duration. I have no plans to change the timer text format, or increase the duration of time for which it is shown. If you don't like it, edit the code yourself, or use another addon.

Bug Reports

If you encounter a problem with PhanxBuffs, please try some quick troubleshooting steps, and then submit a bug report to let me know about the problem.

Please copy this list into your ticket and fill in as much of the requested information as you can.
  • PhanxBuffs version (eg. 3.3.5.71)
  • WoW version and locale (as seen on the login screen, eg. 3.3.5 enUS)
  • Description of the problem
  • Steps to reproduce the problem
  • Whether the problem happens when all other addons are disabled
  • Exact text of the first related error message, if any
  • Screenshot, if the problem is graphical
Remember to check on your ticket after a few days, as I may need more information from you in order to find and fix the problem!

Language Support

Compatible with English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文 game clients.

Translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano (partial), Português, Русский, 한국어, and 繁體中文.

Note that the "Show weapon buff sources" option currently does not work in 简体中文 clients, because the requred translations are missing.

To add or update translations for any locale, enter them on the PhanxBuffs localization page on CurseForge, and then send me a PM here or on CurseForge to let me know that you’ve made changes. If you don’t have a Curse account and don’t want to create one, you can PM me your translations instead. Thanks!

Right, which is why I specifically mentioned that it's not possible for "addons like PhanxBuffs that provide filtering or sorting". Blizzard's half-assed secure template only offers the most rudimentary filtering options (helpful, harmful, cast by player, not cast by player) and sorting options (sort by name, sort by duration). It's especially shitty in that it sends us back to the Dark Ages where buffs/debuffs cast by your pet/vehicle aren't counted as yours. Remember how much it sucked when you couldn't tell your Malygos phase 3 debuff apart from other people's and needed a special addon to watch the combat log and guess at which instance of the debuff was yours? Yeah.

This change will also kill popular buff addons like Elkano's Buff Bars and Satrina Buff Frames.

If you can't live without right-click buff cancelling, you could try Bison. It is up-to-date for patch 4.0.1 and supports right-click buff cancelling.

Any way to hide debuffs entirely? I got mine handled by Pitbull. Also, any way to show timers always?

PhanxBuffs can do that but you will not be able to cancel your buffs by clicking on them.

Hopefully Blizzard will realize what a terrible idea this change was, and either revert the change, or improve the secure headers they offer for buffs so that they're actually usable. Feel free to post on the official WoW forums letting Blizzard know how much you (don't) appreciate this change.
There is a way...

Code:
local button = CreateFrame("Button", nil, UIParent, "SecureActionButtonTemplate")
button:RegisterForClicks("RightButtonUp")
button:SetAttribute("type", "cancelaura")
button:SetAttribute("index", buffIndex)
They still can't be filtered/sorted/moved/resized/shown/hidden in combat without tainting everything though.

Okay, cheers for making that clear.

Hey Phanx, I got a little question which I couldn't get out of the description.

I know the AddOn enables to filter buffs and debuffs, but can you also make new frames?

For example I filter out Holy Shield, Divine Plea, Trinkets etc. And then make a new frame and filter out everything except those.

I ask this because I hide my buffs in combat ando nly show another buff frame with the important buffs I need to know.

I'd download the addon and see for myself, but I can't atm.

It is a private addon I wrote for myself and do not have any plans to release. You can achieve a similar effect using Neal's addon !Beautycase, which you can get by downloading his UI or his oUF layout.
