PhanxBuffs  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.3.41
by: Phanx [More]

Basic replacement for the default buff, debuff, and temporary enchant (weapon buff) frames.
Einfacher Ersatz für die Stärkungszauber-, Schwächungszauber- und Waffenverzauberungs-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 иконок баффов, дебаффов, и чар, связанных с оружием игрока.
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 Awesome Buff” or “/pbuff debuff Scary Debuff”. Buff/debuff names provided with these commands must be properly spelled, capitalized, and punctuated.

Getting Help

Submit a ticket on GitHub. Before reporting a problem, please make sure you are using the latest version of the addon from this page. When reporting a problem, please include a clear description of the problem, detailed steps I can follow to reproduce the problem, whether the problem still happens when all other addons are disabled, the exact text of the related error message if any, and a screenshot if the problem is visual.

If you are requesting a new feature, please be aware that I consider PhanxBuffs to be complete, and will most likely not consider any requests. In particular, I have no plans to change the timer text format, or increase the duration of time for which it is shown; please do not submit new requests about it.

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.

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!

Adagimp — There was a bug with the Debuff Columns option, but not one that should prevent it from functioning. Keep in mind that the minimum number of columns (icons per row) the UI allows you to set is 10; a vertical layout is not planned, or specifically supported, though you could force one by editing the values in the saved variables file (while not logged in).

Also, I'm not sure why you mentioned that you can "adjust the number of rows and columns for the buff" frame, as the UI only provides an option to change the number of columns (icons per row). The number of rows depends on how many buffs or debuffs you have on you. I have no plans to limit the total number of icons shown, though you could do that yourself by adding many common buffs and/or debuffs to your ignore lists. [/b]
I referenced adjusting the row and column settings for the buffs, because the number of rows for buffs seem to adjust to the number of columns. For example, when I increase the number of columns the number of rows also seems to increase. My intuition on first messing with addon was that the number of rows would increase as columns decreased, but that did not seem to be the case.

For the debuffs there appeared to be no such correlation between number of columns and number of rows, the debuffs always displayed in one row.

4.0.1.61
  • Fixed an issue with some (de)buffs not appearing correctly in combat after using the right-click cancel overlay
  • Fixed an issue with the Debuff Columns setting
  • Switched to per-character storage of (de)buff ignore lists

You should also see a reduction in CPU usage, as I've switched from traditional OnUpdate polling to using the animation system.

For whatever reason the column/row number adjustments for debuffs does not work for me. I can adjust the number of rows and columns for the buff just fine, but for the debuff they always stay on one row. Basically I want to orient the debuffs vertically along a hud, but that doesn't seem to be an option.

Version 4.0.1.57 released!
  • Added out-of-combat right-click buff cancel workaround (see description for details)
  • Fixed command-line buff/debuff ignore list management
As a workaround, you can cancel buffs while out of combat by right-clicking on them twice. The first time you right-click, a red overlay will appear on the buff. Right-click again to cancel the buff, or left-click to hide the overlay and keep the buff. The workaround also supports removing weapon buffs, and removing debuffs your character can dispel.
Note that debuff dispelling has not been tested for all classes/specs. If you encounter any problems with this functionality, please let me know.

Read the addon description. It explains the technical reason why my addon can't cancel buffs. I can't recall the last time I needed to click off a buff, so I'm not willing to lose the ability to filter my buffs, to gain the ability to click them off. If that's not a trade-off you're willing to make, then this won't be the addon for you. Blizzard's changes don't allow for any middle ground.

Doh...that's too bad Phanx...your addon is visually superior to Nivbuffs and it has just the features I like....except the right click=remove buffs thing...and that is too bad because even though I know you made this addon for you personal use...the ability to remove your buffs is something paramount for everyone who uses buff display addons.
Is the ONLY drawback of PhanxBuffs aniway so don't feel ofended .I tried to come up with some constructive criticism.

1. Read the addon description, specifically the part under the gigantic heading "Buff Cancelling in WoW 4.0".

2. You've never been able to right-click debuffs to get rid of them, Tagnar13.

It does have one drawback though...the debuffs won't go away if I right-click them...and I saw no option in GUI for it.Please tell me which change to operate in lua or update a new version with a option in GUI to enable right clicking buffs to make them gone.
Thank you in advance :P
This is, from what I understand, a blizzard issue. I had the same problem with my Satrina buff frames. Blizz seems to have disabled it for some reason.

Because it's my addon, and I don't want numbers. If you want an addon that works differently or has different features, feel free to use a different addon, or write your own.

Why mouseover if you can just have numbers beneath it?
I even hate the new Blizzard thing that shows several buffs in only one icon.

Buffs are sorted by remaining duration. It only takes a second to mouse over the end of the row and see which buffs have less time remaining than you're comfortable with. Alternatively, you could use an addon like Energized that reminds you if you're missing buffs (or if your buffs are expiring soon) that you or a party member can cast.

Aww, too bad since then this addon would be perfect.
I just cant risk for PvP (or other situations) that I go into combat with only 1 minute left on the buff without noticing. Theres simply no time or mana to recast in the middle of the battle.
